I really hope there will be more SiN games, the episode project was felt so interesting, but never happened after Ritual became a casual game company and most of SiN devs left. :(

I think the only potential future that exists is some as of yet probably non-existent company does a remaster of the OG SiN that buffers out the snipers and amplifies the ATM accounts enough that people want more of the remastered vision of the property.

It's a goldmine waiting to be tapped, but gonna be a hard sell for anyone to take the risk.

I liked the snipers. They were Tom Clancy before there ever was such a thing as Ghost Recon.

I agree, the snipers were great. Their placement at the end of the aqueducts, and at the start of the mansion, wasn't. Honestly the mansion level is one of my favorite levels in a game. The entire concept of being sniped from the outside, with you inside a building seeking cover, for almost the entire level, is fucking brilliant. Especially since you CAN pick them all off if you want to, if you're smart about it.

Oh, yeah, and the hot tub. MMMMM...RUB A DUB DUB.

My opinion expanded:
JC allowed for Blade to come across as the i-want-to-punch-you-in-the-face-but-i'll-let-you-live-today tough guy, so he served a purpose, but I found him too smarmy and know-it-all-ish. It felt forced or cliche on several occasions.


Are you kidding me? This game is the most 90's thing in existence, to the point where I'd argue it's 90's blackface. It wakes up in the morning and pisses Surge.

More nerd, less know-it-all. That's all I'm saying.

I actually struggled to find posts of yours to upvoat in retaliation. PoC is right, Sin sucked so hard it is where the 90's gravitationally ended.

Dude, why the fuck are you so hard on this game? It's fucking phenomenal. It's my favorite single player FPS ever. It's Duke Nukem's logical closure point. You make so many of it's minor flaws out to be HUGE issues when in reality the Waterworks boss is the only serious problem. There are other flaws but nothing glaring. The ATV level isn't even that big of a deal and can be beaten easily by saving constantly, and makes up for it with a killer ending.

SiN's biggest "problem" is that it's caught between worlds. It's too advanced for many old school gamers to fully understand, with it's Deus Ex style interactivity, proto-Mass Effect storyline branching and consequences, and it's dependence on sharpshooting that rivals Counter Strike. New school gamers have no idea it exists and would be confused by it's old school design elements, which rock.

It exists to make a small number of elitist pricks very, very happy. The kind of guys who install a modchip in a Sega Saturn then go get shitfaced at a dive bar and make fun of liberals and how they've ruined culture, including gaming. The kind of guys who drive home from said bar with the top down, completely drunk with lots of weed in the car blasting FEAR and Midtown Bootboys in wealthy sheltered neighborhoods while shifting really, really late so their V8 wakes everyone up, just to show up the Hispanic guy driving next to them in a shitty riced out Honda. The kind of guys who end their night by going on 4chan and shit talking weebs and posting hot black girls in response to their yellow fever. The kind of guys who start their morning by hand writing a letter to Burger King telling them to bring back the B.K. Kool Kids Klub "except without the women, minorities, and crippled characters" because that would be, and I quote, "fake and gay."

What I'm trying to say is that this game was made for ME.

@JumpJuneJump - just registered after looking at this thread, so sorry if this was already asked - were you at Ritual during the Episodes' development? How would the storyline have progressed?

We'll work on getting a hold of all the old Ritualistic content.
We have the rest of the old SiN stuff.
Expect an official announcement soon!
