      Though I'm sure the developers would have made HK great, it's overused in games today, especially games of this nature. I'm glad they went with Berlin and can't wait to see what they do with it!

    2. Elton Chen on

      Hong Kong would have been awesome. In such a small city, there could be so much content.

      I never got the first nor the second survey anywhere in my e-mail folders, spam or otherwise. The survey service that was used sucks. :(

      Dang, my email about the voting ended up in my spam folder and I didn't get my vote in before the tally was counted. Gave a very late vote for Hong Kong anyways. Ahh well.

      I wanted Chicago too. I was surprise to see it was the last one. But Berlin will be great too! What the heck, ALL the city would have been great!

      Yes. Bug City had my vote initially but I am fully behind the Berlin decision. Back in the day when Shadowrun was new, our fellow runners in Deutchland really kept the game alive with lots of fan based tech and stories. Good to see the Good Karma returned in kind all these years later!

      I'm still disappointed that Chicago didn't win to begin with. I wanted Bug City really badly. :(

      Im a bit depress. I was so busy that I forgot to vote, also I thought that Hong Kong was something that was going to win easy. Though Hong Kong is something you would expect to be something that over done, i dont think it really is because it hardly touch upon in video game form. In fact im really disappointed at the way they portrayed cyberpunk in asian setting. I was hoping that we would see a re-envisioning of asian cyberpunk. Asian would have given us a chance to see thing that we would never had saw before. Have us fight thing and face technology that completly different from what we are used to.

      Im sure that the developer will have a interesting vison for Berlin.

      Im hoping for may be a expansion pack or DLC that take use to other different city.

    11. Garry Cotton on

      Personally, I'm glad it wasn't Hong Kong: yeah, it's a great city for this kind of genre, but it's SO overdone in video-games these days that it's nice to go somewhere different.

      Yeah they need to fix the survey thing. I got the first survey, but not the runoff.

    13. Lee Sweeney on

      Well from the non-adult responses, I think this will be the last vote,
      Why would the devs want to deal with this crowd ever again.

      Also remember we are supposed to get Mod tools, so
      "More Seattle, and now More Berlin" can be done, also other cities can be started as well.

      Glad they did not do a vote on the engine, can you imagine how much crying there would be?

      So basically your writers now have an excuse to rebuild the Berlin Wall...

    15. Jacob on

      woohoo berlin!!, i agree that honk kong is overdone, theres been 23 games atleast set in HK compared to Berlins 3

    16. Christian Harms on

      Who could've thought! My hometown!!! That will be intersting. In the district Spandau is a castle, perhaps that one will / can be included^^

    17. Melhelix on

      WOOO! Sweetness! I'll admit, I'm really hoping there's a castle.

      Looking forward to seeing what Berlin looks like in the future.

    19. Tillerz on

      HongKong would have been so much more interesting. O.o

    20. Céline .S. Sauvé on

      Darn. Oh well. 'Tis free, and no one's going to _force_ me to play Berlin :p

    21. Emanuel Mayer on

      epic epic epic! ;'D

    22. Brad Silvia on

      Neo-Nazis are a must.

    23. praguepride

      This game won't be complete without nazis now. Although I would tip my hat if HBS could make a game, set in Berlin, that DOESN'T reference the nazis :D

      @Tobi: Why don't you just bust a cap in their ass?

      @Thorsten Fietzek
      hahaha! "protection from what, zee germans??" love that flick!

    25. Hideo Kuze on

      It would have been nice if I have had the chance to vote. But the damn email never arrived!
      Now I only hope Berlin will not be a copy-paste of Seattle.
      Hong Kong would have been so much better.

      Jose Palma Gil on

      Yay Berlin... Boo Berlin... was hoping for Hong Kong but Berlin is my alternate choice so I'm happy/sad regardless

    27. Thorsten on

      What are you afraid of? Zee germans?

    28. Chi-Young on

      CURSE YOU BERLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN~! It's a European Conspirancy!!!!!!!

    29. Mark on

      I am sad that I didn't get an email so that I could vote for Honk Kong. :-(

      Robert Melcic on

      I hope at least if there is any sequalage or expansion or DLC it'll be hong kong since that seems to be the second choice!

    31. Mike Villasuso on

      Yeah, I never got any email either... blows.

      While I'm perfectly happy with Berlin as the winner, I am rather frustrated that I never got a single of the emails that were promised. It makes me rather concerned about my chances for ever getting any of the pledge rewards.

    33. Kennan Ward on

      Was hoping for Hong Kong from the first vote. Oh well Berlin was my third choice

      Andy on

      Woot, glad to see that Berlin won. It's what I went for before the first half of the vote was revealed. I was kinda worried that Hong Kong was gonna win. I hope that we get to see Denver in a sequel.

      If you keep working with Clifhanger ya'll could really do an amazing job setting up past(2050) events in single player while they do all the future(2060) multi-player. I'm so excited for everything Shadowrun... /squee

      Also, I have had a good experience with SurveyGizmo as a pro user.

    36. Thlayli on

      NND. I was hoping for HK.

    37. Lee Sweeney on

      Remember with the tools we can create MORE of what they give us~!

      Locoweed on

      Well....I voted Hong I look forward to HBS showing me how awesome everyone else thinks Berlin is. :P

    39. Kristoffer Wessel on


      sums it right up!

    40. Tobi (Crusader Kickstarter pls!!) on

      i voted for "more seattle" on the first poll, then berlin for the second. but honestly: i don't care. just make a good game. as someone said before: the stories drive the game. and as others suggested: just because berlin will be included first doesn't mean HK is out. if the game is successful, then HK (and all the other cities) will be made a DLC. just let the guys do their thing and make a good game and we'll get to our favorite spot in time.
      also, dear game designers, include us backers, but don't invest too much time in micromanaging "our" demands. we donated(!) money for YOUR game. so focus on the game and your vision.

      @ Justin Corwin: I think the game takes place at the beginning of first edition (i.e. 2050), so it would still be a free city.



    42. Justin Corwin

      So is it still a Free City? Or is this after Saeder Krupp helped the German government retake control in late 2055?

      You should have added both cities. I know this wasn't in the deal, I'm just saying.

      I voted for Berlin twice as well, seemed like the one that hadn't been done to death (except in WWII-era games).

      Same as Matt, more Seattle would have been best, but Berlin as a second is fine. I don't see the fascination with HK, it's overdone.
