Been listening to a #Shadowrun #Tabletop playthrough #Podcast called #DrekHappens recently am about half way through Season 1 & the characters have backstory summaries & the action is often frantic, full of comedy & sweary.
Good drek chummers!
The epsiodes are short enough not to get bogged down in roll by roll issues, so the story flows quite well & the characters personalities start to show through.
This cold war agent managament #game #SigmaTheory seems to tick a lot of boxes in using a crack squad of agents to influence the development of new weapons, or disrupting the infrastructure and flow of information in the neon cyberwar of the near future..
It is in early access now
Finished Brian Parker's #cyberpunk noir detective #story "The Immorality Clause" & I must say it's easy going "Sam Spade" style narrative had me hooked as it believably interfaced with AI, AR and robot ethics admidst murders in pleasure droid/sexbot parlours.
It's earthy and gritty but deals with the whole spectrum of 'droid servitude, sex, sentience & companionship. It gives a fuller breadth to the future of our interaction with the machines.
If there is one right way to introduce a character into a line-up in a #jrpg it's to have them sing at their concert, be interrupted by cyber police & then have them fight using their sonic skills.

I like #DynastyWarriors, I can't help myself. Hack & slash, but with an overarching strategic objective in mind.
So #FateEXTELLALINK is juicing that up to the max! Really enjoy the characters from faux history & their specials - including the big OTT FMV sequence once you juice up your musou bars.
#VirtuaVerse cool as...
A #cyberpunk epic point & click adventure musically backed (and story written by) MASTER BOOT RECORD.
and I quote its blurb..
"Travelling around the world, he'll have to walk across hardware graveyards, deal with digital archeology, tribes of cryptoshamans, and virtual reality debauchery."
Everything about it has me lathered up, salivating and expectant.
I went in to it with some in-trepidation because the premise of cyber zombies seems a bit derivative.. I liked the in-your-face writing style. Brutal & honest. These "runners of the shadows", who over-pimp out their biology with tech, & finally lose control seemed a much cooler prospect than just run of the mill normal brains eating zombies.
Characters & combat action is top notch.
As always, good #cyberpunk news roundups on all media fronts from neon dystopia...
Cut my teeth on EverQuest & Dark Age of Camelot, but AO (as buggy as it was on release) is the kind of #sci-fi / #cyberpunk future I always wanted to be a part of. Mining for Notum. Shooting the drones. Twirling laser swords in the Shadowlands. Ahhh them were the days..
I'm drenched in #Shadowrun Fever.
Hong Kong is about to climax, I'm sniffing around the tabletop books purely for lore & imagery excitement.
I've been dabbling in Dragonfall, just to try out some builds.
I need Harebrained Schemes to pick up where Cliffhanger failed with Boston Chronicles & just do a proper multiplayer Shadowrun.
The NA cannot satiate 4ever

There's a certain satisfaction in knowing the #cyberpunk content you have bought, you now truly own & can enjoy in an ethical private manner, totally under your control.
I've just thrown a few nuyen at my very own aerb mini-deck, so I guess I'm now officially a #decker. Now to source some softs for it, before I hit the Matrix.
Best learn the ins & outs of the trackpad, given these staunch dwarven sausage fingers, I may need some new cyberware mittens to increase the accuracy & precision of my pokies.
Forgive the hellbird linkage, but this #cyberpunk #game currently in development looks like a 2d story driven animated adventure right up my neon dystopian street. I can't find any digital web place for it other than the toxic raptor site.
Just played an evening of Neon Chrome co-op share played on the #PS4 & apart from the top down twin stick shooter tactical #cyberpunk wet dream that it provides it has an amazing soundtrack & the coolest adrenalin soaked tactical room clearance & boss nastiness.
It gives you just enough time to think & react with your cyberwares, area attacks, drones, shields and laser mini-guns. Plus the levels are procedurally generated so every run is varied, like #FTL.
Ahh go on then, another Shirobon.. The Perfect Machine.
It sits right after Regain Control on the Distant Reality album and neatly gives you a more pacey mechanical ending to the whole project.
I think this departure into #synthwave is excellent, because Shirobon does quite a bit in the chiptunes department. But my glassy eyed #cyberpunk virtual persona is riding the tonal traces through solid fat synth envelopes on this one.
