This is a title that I've been looking forward to since its successful Kickstarter campaign. I'm a fan of the blend of dystopian cyberpunk and fantasy elements found in the Shadowrun setting. The previous two games were enjoyable singleplayer adventures and the developers seem to have listened to fan feedback when creating the newest installment. That means more story and more polished interfaces and game mechanics.

It's a good time to be a fan of computer RPGs. Between Shadowrun: Hong Kong and The White March, the next few days are going to be very busy for me. I don't think I'll be the only swept up in adventure and intrigue either.

Official About
HONG KONG. A stable and prosperous port of call in a sea of chaos, warfare, and political turmoil. The Hong Kong Free Enterprise Zone is a land of contradictions - it is one of the most successful centers of business in the Sixth World, and home to one of the world’s most dangerous sprawl sites. A land of bright lights, gleaming towers, and restless spirits where life is cheap and everything is for sale.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is the third standalone game in Harebrained Schemes’ critically-acclaimed Shadowrun cRPG series. Experience the most impressive Shadowrun RPG yet with an all new crew, expanded magic and cyberware, a completely revamped Matrix, an upgraded release of the Shadowrun Editor, and much more!

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm always keen to try different genres of games and discover all the gems out there.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally could be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.

I still have to wait a couple hours until I get home from work to start the 3.1 GB download from GOG. Anticipation level = CRITICAL

Edit: Would setting up a SSH so that I could have initiated the download remotely from work have been too much? :P

Quoting: wolfyrionThe Deluxe Version is around 10GB on Steam...
The soundtrack and art book are 7 GB?

Edit: Maybe the 3.1 GB on GOG is HEAVILY compressed?

After installation, the GOG version weighs in at approximately 10-11 GB :)

I'm downloading right now and it's a 2.5GB download, almost 10GB after installed according to steam.

Edit: For the regular version, that is. I'm pretty sure the OST + Artbook don't take much more space though.
Edit2: I'm an idiot. That's for the Deluxe version as I pre-ordered.

Game dosen't work for me, I've got multiple monitors and the game squeezes two monitors worth into one screen, making it impossible to change settings or do anything. I just want it to run on the primary monitor. Their other games work just fine. Be nice if this stuff was tested more before releasing a full game.
