I wanted to pop in to say that no, I've not fallen back off the face of the earth. Instead I've been stuck in that enviable, in tiring, position of having too much to do, and too little time in which to do it.
However! I have gotten a chance to buy, and play through the start of Shadowrun Returns.
While it's no replacement for a good group and a handful of dice the game nails the "feel" of Shadowrun. From the Barrens, to Pike Market, Shadowrun Returns feels like a Shadowrun game.
I'm not saying you should run out and buy a copy, but if you did, I would be surprised if you didn't feel it worth the price.
