So Khajiit started playing Shadowrun Returns today. This one doesn’t care for the third person isometric perspective for an RPG but the game seems solid otherwise. Liking the skills and dialogue. Still have to get accustomed to the way things work (like for instance Khajiit’s character was fighting a “hellhound” alone and tried using a medthing to heal but this one couldn’t figure out how to make the character use it and she died).

GOOD TASTE IN GAMES SER

But from an experienced player of the game, I will definitely recommend the DLCs Dragonfall and Hong Kong over the base game. Not to say that Vanilla!Shadowrun is bad (it’s pretty good actually) but those DLCs are on a whole different level man.

And remember.

Always geek the mage first, chummer!

Hey Khajiit was right! Geek=kill! The language used in these games is fun!

Khajiit likes how if you get cybernetic bodypart upgrades your magical potential suffers.

One of the things I really like about Shadowrun is that it has both magic and cybernetics. Usually you only get one in a setting. But SR balances things out by making so that you can only really go one route with a particular character. You can mage up, or cyber up. But not both. That would be too ridiculously uber.

Back in the pen and paper days, I did play a raven shaman with some cyber. Her backstory was that she was crippled in a run that went bad. The docs who saved her life (and restored her mobility) did so by giving her wired reflexes. Playing her was a challenge because her Magic stat took a hit from the cyber. She had to Initiate just to get her Magic back up to normal levels.

Khajiit agrees, that would be horribly OP to have both with no penalty. This one also thinks it makes good sense metaphysically if you see your character’s natural body as a vessel for storing arcane energy. You take away a body part and you make that vessel smaller, and thus, your pool of arcane energy.

So what archetype are you playing with, Cat? I prefer the Adept myself.

Khajiit is just experimenting right now. First character was Street Samurai. Second character was Rigger. This one liked having the drone around and his character could still do the bang bang stuff. May try an elf shaman or adept next.
