  1. System Shock 2 is a whack speedgame. You skip a lot of fun content in what is a pretty long game casually. I’m interested in running the game but so little of the gameplay that I love is remaining. My thinking is that there should be another category besides the any% skipfest that currently exists (any% no OoB still skips a lot). There are a couple of things to choose from, but the least arbitrary one would be All Notes. Throughout the game, there are notes (which are basically missions) you receive through emails or audio logs. By collecting (or not) the necessary logs/emails, you get a nice checklist of objectives to complete for each floor. The current run already does a number of these as they remain mandatory, but doing the rest could add a layer of complexity to the run. Additionally, it could be played on a difficulty besides Easy (I was thinking Normal) and without the death glitch for a speedrun that remains faithful to the original gameplay, just much faster. If anyone wants to talk this over or help route this, I’ll be available in the #shock IRC channel on SRL and on Twitter.
