People have cried out for a rerelease/remaster of the 1994 cyberpunk role-playing game System Shock for such a long time, it pretty much seemed like it would never happen.

So it was quite surprising when the game, which is the precursor to 2007's amazing BioShock, appeared on Good Old Games Sept. 22 in a new 'Enhanced' addition.

Not only are both System Shock and System Shock 2 available, but at least the first comes with some tweaks to bridge the last 21 years.

Mashable explains some of the improvements to the game:

The big change is improved support for a range of display resolutions. The original game capped out at 640x480, but Night Dive's remaster brings the max resolution up to 1024x768, with 854x480 now included as an option for those with widescreen monitors.

Other improvements include new mouselook mode — in the long, long ago, look controls in first-person PC games were mapped to the keyboard — usability tweaks for the game's inventory screen and an assortment of bug fixes.

You can get System Shock: Enhanced Edition in a bundle with an unaltered version of the original for $9.99 on Good Old Games, but it's discounted to $7.99 until Sept. 29.

Interwave Studios' Dark Matter is off to a rocky start with many gamers upset at the game's unfinished story. In response, Good Old Games is offering a refund to unsatisfied customers:

It's come to our attention that the gamecard for Dark Matter was not quite specific enough about the nature of the game and, as a result, it may be that some people bought the title with some misapprehensions as to how the game's story would end. Since we don't ever want to sell a game to someone because they believe it is something that it is not, we wanted to let you know about this and let you know what we're doing to make it right.

If you bought Dark Matter before 21 October 2013 at 15:00 GMT (when we updated the description to where we feel it adequately reflects the game) and you feel that the game wasn't as promised to you, please contact Support and they'll be happy to offer you full refund to your card or, if you''d prefer, games of equal or lesser value to the sale price of Dark Matter (which is $13.49).

Dark Matter's publisher has since clarified that the game is meant to be episodic, but the damage seems already done.
