Irony punctuation is any proposed form of notation used to denote irony or sarcasm in text. Written English lacks a standard way to mark irony, and several forms of punctuation have been proposed. Among the oldest and most frequently attested are the percontation point proposed by English printer Henry Denham in the 1580s, and the irony mark, used by Marcellin Jobard and French poet Alcanter de Brahm during the 19th century. Both marks take the form of a reversed question mark, "⸮".

yeah, 20 years ago

this is based on the original, right? The first System Shock was amazing when it came out, but I don't think it ages well. Some of the gameplay mechanics are archaic because it was released during the advent of FPS games.

I'd try System Shock 2 (HD version) if you can't get into it. That is still playable and one of the best games ever - better than the first one.



I think agrul and Jxands are probably right

i bought them both in a combo pack from Steam because i'd always wanted to play them

i was gonna start with SS2 because as you said it seems a lot more approachable from a modern standpoint, but my 'BUT U HAVE TO PLAY THEM IN ORDER' ocd wants me to play thru the original first

If you don't play it you might have a chance that you'll go outside.

i couldn't force my way through ss1 when i tried to a couple of years ago, i'm waiting for the remake as it looks pretty faithful so far

I played through ss2 again with the HD textures/models pack (not at all necessary) while I in school and it was still fantastic

so basically i'm saying listen to sear for all life advice and do exactly what he says
