Fresh from The Indie Horror Showcase, check out the latest gameplay trailer for System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition — Nightdive Studio’s remaster of the 1999 classic sci-fi horror action role-playing game.
Nightdive Studios has taken their restorative talents to a game that many consider one of the best first-person shooters of all time. Like its remastered predecessor, System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition has been rebuilt for modern platforms using Nightdive Studios’ proprietary KEX Engine, offering players the definitive System Shock 2 experience with improved visuals, enhanced gameplay, and vastly improved performance.
Valve launched Steam on September 12, 2003, and I created my account the next day on September 13th. The first year was pretty rough, and I was skeptical of digital distribution, but slowly the software became something that I use daily and cannot live without. Check out this news item over at Steam that goes over the timeline.
I made a few simple modifications to my GameCube recently. I removed the dead CR2032 that was soldered in and replaced it with a 2 pin battery holder. This will let me easily replace the battery next time it dies. Next I replaced the fan with a Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX. This required a 40mm fan adapter plate and fan cable. The big mod was replacing the optical drive with the GC Loader PNP HW2 loaded with Swiss. This allows you to load games from a SD card instead of relying on the aging optical drive. I got a CARBY by Insurrection Industries for the video output along with a support brace. Lastly, I got a Retro Fighters BattlerGC Wireless Controller. Overall I am really happy with this GameCube setup.
