Glad to see they'll be leading off with what happened to Fastjack and others. Sybil virus, hmm? Interesting.

Interesting. Would think it'll be released for SR4A...simply because of compatibility...but I guess we'll be waiting for more news from TPTB.

Indeed. And you know what, One of upcoming releases, Stolen Souls, promissess to have NY well covered...and it also speaks about some virus, so maybe they are waiting till the last moment with Battle for Manhattan so they wont say too much in advance. And maybe, just maybe those books have something more in common...

I'm going for a Limited Edition of SR5, if possible. Likely going to skip the Setting supplements, meanwhile Run Faster aka Runner's Companion sounds like a must. I kinda hope I'll be able to skip Stolen Souls, that its contents won't be part of Missions because 3 heavy hitters in such a short time are a tad too much finances-wise. As for the Introductory Box Set, I'll see whether I'll advise the gaming club to go for this one or just SR5.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

SR 5 is $36 on Amazon, so that helps the cost of that one.
