Crion has made a custom gamesys for SS2. In case you don't know what a custom Gamysys is here's a quick explanation: Think of a Gamsys as a database for SS2 that holds all the properties for all the mosters, weapons, cost of items etc. Crion has modified these values to give us a bit of fresh gameplay. The Gamsys can be got here (187kb.)

Cheers Crion!

    PC Powerplay: The Shock Project - 6:10:48 AM EST - Dave
The guys over at Pangean have got The Shock Project some coverage in a rather fine Austrailian PC magazine: PC Powerplay. Here is the article
"Once again, it’s excellent to review a mod for a different game every now and again. We love to showcase this type of thing so let us know if you find any more. The Shock Project has been running for around five months now and is expected to be released in December of this year. Although technically TSP is a mod for System Shock 2, it’s far more like a sequel. It has, from what we can gather, a very interesting plot, as well as numerous sub-plots to keep you interested. It also has completely new music to creep you out just at the right moment. It’s clear this is a mammoth task and Pangean is taking the utmost care in recreating the System Shock universe to suit their own devices. Everything is new – new weapons, new enemies, new everything. Obviously if you’re a System Shock fan you’d be positively salivating at the moment. If you’re not, you should be. The Shock Project is shaping up to be one of the finest mods ever. In fact, the word mod doesn’t do it justice. We will take another look at The Shock Project closer to its release."

Congratulations guys!

    Arx Fatalis Fansite - is Open - 12:12:09 AM EST - Dan
The Arx Fatalis & Underworld Site, is OPEN! Yeah, took me long enough, eh? The site has a damn fine staff, and is off to a real great start, with news on the Arx Fatalis Playable Demo you need to be looking out for come September. Gotta love pre-release demos, that way we can tell the developers what we like and don't like, and they can make a better game based on player feedback. Visit that site. Visit that site often. Boomark it. I want to become just as big as The Circle! Haha!
