Folks, FASA misses deadlines, as a gaming company, until they are ready to
hire LOTS more people and NOT change their production levels (therefore
allowing them to catch up to themselves), this is going to continue to happen.
As for why things got pushed back this last summer? I was told that
Mechwarrior 3rd Edition played a big roll in pushing back Shadowrun (Man &
Machine) as well. The Mechwarrior People (such as Bryan Nystul) were really
helpful in getting SR3 played up. It became therefore "scratch someone
elses' back time", and Mike and the SR people therefore turned their focus to
One company, big name (in the industry), small staff.
