Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

System Shock is now freeware !!!
Posted on Thursday, February 28 2008 @ 20:22:30 Eastern

No this is not a joke, System Shock is now downloadable for free over the internet. Just click on the link below, and you will be taken to a website that explains everything you need to know about downloading the game.

Due to the fact that this game was released for DOS, you're probably expecting that you would have to download DOSbox. While it does use DOSbox, you don't need it in order to play System Shock. The great thing about this download is that DOSbox is integrated into the download. Which breaks up the tedium needed to play games for DOSbox.

However, this download does have technical flaws. You would find the game to occasionaly crash (especially, when closing an overworld map), and there's no patch released to remedy this. There are also times when your character will uncontrolably turn in a certain direction (there's no patch for this problem either).

Despite all of this, System Shock is a very enjoyable game to play, especially to those who have never played it before (like myself).
