I'm a huge fan of Shadowrun..HUGE. Love the setting. Well, this "Year Of Shadowrun" has given me a bunch of PC games and an upcoming skirmish mini's game. Awesome.

Well, now there's going to be a Euro game coming out...where you play the megacorps trying to run Seattle. Fucking awesome.


It's basically being marketed as "Lords of Waterdeep" but more gritty. I'm all about it.

Please explain what you mean by "more gritty". What could be more gritty than placing a meeple on the Yawning Portsl?

All it takes is a coat of paint to impress some folks, I guess.

Whenever I think about Shadowrun, I think about resource management.

Trust me, as a long time Shadowrunner, I'm the first to tell you that this sounds like it's going to have to go out of its way to convince me that it's worth buying. And also, as a Shadowrunner, I'd also have to say that resource management is a huge part...if you run out of Cram at the wrong time, you're fucked.
