    Didn't notice anything like that. There was an update to install though... maybe it is fixed?

    I played a couple of months ago and it seemed ok and there were plenty of games. The only problem was my atrophied skills and l33t skills of all the people still playing the game.

    must have another try some time in the next week or so...

    Had a few games just now and a few yesterday. It's a bit harder than it used to be (everyone seems to know what they're doing now), and I was at least getting into games fairly quickly. There must be a couple of hundred people still playing it. One of the matches was full for a long stretch. I think there's still a reasonably dedicated MLG community who play 4v4 attrition as well, but that was never my favourite.

    They should re release this as an XBLA game or something. Chuck in a few more maps. I'd buy it, even though I still own the disk game (and will never trade it for anything. Ever)

    Had a fantastic running battle against another human who had enhanced vision and teleport just like me. Seemed to go on forever until a team mate sniped him.

    I started a thread calls 'I've got the Runs' (get it?) but that didn't do too well.

    So! Who wants to play Shadowrun again? There are still people playing, full teams, though the focus is back on killing rather than running the artifact. The gameplay still holds up and the graphics don't look too dated, either.

    It'd be cool to get some EG people playing again, even if irregularly. Who wants to dust off a copy and join me? You can get a copy for about 3. I know RepairmanJack is interested.

    I'm on 360. I know its cross platform, but are PC people able to join 360 parties?

    I've been playing this a bit over the last few days and have always found games without a hitch. It seems to have a dedicated user base which is pretty cool for an older title like this.

    Problem is, despite enjoying it and liking a lot of the features, I'm absolutely terrible at this game.

    Never gave it much time before but I'm finding it really frustrating and rather unforgiving/inaccessible for a crap new player like myself. Sometimes I get killed before I've even finished buying magic/weapons etc at the beginning of each round which seems rather unsporting, but most of the time I'm too busy repeatedly dying that every round all I can afford is another gun and a bit of ammo while everyone else is magic-ing away.

    My own fault I know, but a summary of my recent frustrations.

    I'll keep on trying it for a bit to see if I can get my head around it.

    EDIT

    Quick question. Is body clearing generally classed as unsporting?

    This is still alive? Count me in, along with Chromehounds the best MP on the 360.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I might get a copy, seeing as it's so cheap.

    Tag is same as my name here.

    Beetroot,

    People will have tantrums if you clear bodies. I think it's a stupid attitude - if it's good for the team it's good for me - but that seems to be the lie of the land.

    (For people wondering, when you die in Shadowrun you can be resurrected. To stop this happening you need to 'clear' bodies from the game.)

    As for getting better, only thing I can say is that SR is a game about movement more than killing. Either having better movement than your enemy or denying them theirs.

    I'm very rusty, but perhaps we can talk through the game as we play.

    We've had run-ins on the forum Leolian, but if you send me an FR and we play together I will help you plant your tree.

    Ok. As I said, 1Dgaf, my copy is definitely in store, but I'm happy to grab a second copy for a revival. Amazing game that deserved so much more.

    I don't swear that much online. Just try to get the job done.

    I'm a bit like Clint Eastwood in that way.

    It was really nice to play a game with friendly people thanks to Beetroot Bertie and his pal.

    Speaking to these two young men, giving them advice and insight into the game, I felt like a old warrior passing on knowledge to the future of our clan. And.. I...I felt so loved. *sniff*

    "Young men". My old man reflexes, slow thinking and cowardly running away from Trolls were telling me otherwise :)

    Ta for the tips. And I recall hearing some swearing ;P
