Ion shadowrun

This is where Darryn usually waxes lyrical about a retro game; it’s his Monday tradition. So, why break tradition? Today’s ION is Shadowrun on SNES. I think it was my first foray into a cyberpunk experience, and I absolutely adored it. Sure, it was flawed in many ways – the shooting was awful and money became useless once you could farm those weird ghosts. But running around, hacking computers and even getting a virus implanted in your head? Pure winning!

In the news today: No Man’s Sky may yet “reveal itself to be all that it can be”, everything you missed from BlizzCon and NVIDIA might be monitoring you right now.

In Other News: Civ 6 crosses the million mark, Wow will keep expanding and Zelda recreated with a lot of dominoes.
