Can I just buy this for 99 cents or do I have to use 80 MSP?

Both are fine.

Nice. I think I might have to get it at that price.

I've looked at Shadowrun in the past. How big is the community currently though? Even if it's 99 cents, with a lack of single player I don't want to spend a dollar for a dead game.

Playing any decade-old game will be an exercise in eye-shredding pain compared to modern games. I remember loading up the original Half-Life a few years back with thoughts of replaying my favorite game of all time, but I only made it to the great moment where you press the elevator button, bringing the screaming car plummeting down the shaft (that's what she said!), before packing it in. You can't go home again.

I remember liking Deus Ex a lot, especially the multiple endings; I took care to have a save point that I could reload to head down the other story forks in the road. The level of detail in small stuff like being able to play pool on the table in the bar was cute. There was a bug which allowed implants to run forever w/o sapping batteries if you switched them on via the menu instead of hot keys which made sneaking around hella easy.

However, it made a huge mistake that many games do in switching to 3rd person for cut scenes rather than sticking to 1st person like in Half-Life games or Call of Duty where you never stop seeing thru your character's eyes. The voice acting for Denton was awful and the flailing animation didn't help. When you had to commit to mod choices - e.g. do you want to be able to jump farther and run faster or be permanently stealthy with the leg mod? - it was before you knew what was ahead or what your playing style would ultimately be, so it was possible to gimp your character early on. There was also a story point which broke the covenant the game had made for the first half which said you could play it how you wanted to by forcing you to kill someone and ending up in the next scene regardless of what you want. Unlike Bioshock which handled that sort of thing with a 1st-person view cut scene, Deus Ex makes you play it out even though who have no choice in what to do. They should've just done a cut scene instead of breaking format.

Still, for a buck, it's a must get for those looking for some old-school action or those with older PCs that can't hack Crysis and later eye candy over gameplay and story games. You can't get a soft drink for a buck, so why not?

Not to sure how big the Shadowrun community is not been on it for months but was still getting some games and you can play with Bots so if not in it for achievements should still pick up.

For the price I could not pass it up! I own it on 360 already but since it's a cross-platform game can play with some buddies on my PC with them instead of having to do so on my 360.

I would like to see RE5 Discounted or any game I don't own that has achievements :)

From what I've read, the community is still active, though the ones hanging around will pummel you since they know all the tricks. I played this a while back on 360 and loved it, so it's a no-brainer for me. Also remember that you play on the same servers as the 360 players, so that should help with finding games.

Very excited to get Deus Ex for a dollar as I just got Invisible War yesterday for the Xbox. I lost my old copy of Deus Ex and have been wanting to play through these again before Human Revolution comes out.

Hope I can convince my friends to pick Shadowrun up. I purchased it myself for dirt cheap from gogamer awhile back and only played a bit against bots. It was certainly entertaining and I can see the potential for some intense action. If only there was a way to gift games like you can through Steam =/... they can be pretty stubborn when it comes to trying something new no matter the price.

Um, I don't think this is a GFWL, so ya may wanna edit the title not ton confuse people.


Its is GFWL it & Halo 2 were actually the very first games for windows live games. They both had install limits and GFWL key limits.

dude, that was in response to Deus Ex. But ya, this game [Shadowrun] this time around is actually GFWL, not GFW.

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

New day, new deal! Today, grab Shadowrun for just 80 Microsoft Points ($0.99), that's 95% off the regular price!

On top of that, Shadowrun is a crossplatform LIVE title! You can play against your Xbox LIVE friends as well as Games for Windows LIVE people! Game on!

I think some of us are just saying that while the old moniker may exist on printed material, the LIVE portion has practically been stripped from the client and the website, replaced with what appears to be Games for Windows (as in the domain too) or Games for Windows Marketplace. It just seems like a rebranding..

I'm so in for this Shadowrun even though I won't be able to run it. I'm sure they keep track of this stuff, so if they see that .99 cents = $$$ for old shit they got sitting on a server, the more cheap ass deals we'll get.

LOL. I read this thread and thought all the "this game's a classic" stuff was referring to Shadowrun but just figured out with was for Deus Ex.

Yeah, Shadowrun should have been 1$ to begin with. Even then it's a bit overpriced since if you own pretty much any other multiplayer shooter you will never play it.

I was confused by the title switch, too. I'm like, "No, Shadowrun is not a classic? Wut?" And those that were like, "I JUST GOT THIS FOR $2.50 ON STEAM!" and I'm like, "Eh?" I figured it out though.

A multiplayer game with no one playing it, cross-platform or not, is not really worth a $1 imo.

MS, where's Gears of War? Where's Fable?

Embarrassed to say I paid $40 for this near launch. It's worth a dollar, but not much more... and this will probably get a few people back playing online. Here's hoping we get Fable TLC for ~$5!
