System Shock 2 hits Good Old Games tomorrow

As far as PC cult classics go, System Shock 2 is the whip. Unfortunately, that "cult" bit is part of the problem--Ken Levine's lauded BioShock predecessor has been mired in licensing issues for years, preventing a re-release despite clamoring fans.

No longer. System Shock 2 will hit Good Old Games tomorrow, with a release on Steam set for some time in the future. Rock, Paper, Shotgun has more on the struggle to bring the groundbreaking 1999 horror/shooter/RPG title to widespread distribution, but you'll only need to lay down $10 to get your hands on it.

What better way to pass the time until BioShock Infinite releases on March 26? You could even be one of those so-and-so's who always says the original was better. Or in this case, the spiritual-predecessor-to-the-prequel was better.

    Fucking YES! I tried playing it recently any like many other people have posted it was a nightmare to get working.

    I made a promise years ago that when this game was legally released, I would legally buy it twice because of how much enjoyment I have received from it as well as time played. Well, I will be keeping my promise even while being unemployed doing so tomorrow.

    YES. Been waiting for the licensing issues to come to an end. Backlog is stacking up, but this will be a priority.
