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.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
