Default Shadowrun, 6th edition

So, Catalyst Game Labs announced the 6th edition for their longrunner:

This rather exited gentleman gives us his first thoughts:

It seems they want to make the game "easier" or more "user friendly".

So, what do you think?

They're not trying to sell to cynical old gamers like me. I like the setting, but I don't need this edition any more than the previous ones… because when I run it, I run it under GURPS.

Hey I'm curious how you handle Netrunning. I was working briefly on Shadowrun rules but I didn't get very far. No matter how I tried to Stat-out Netrunning or Astral Projection they ended up being colossally expensive abilities that didn't have a lot of impact in the game.

It's never been a big part of my games, but I abandoned my own cobbled-together systems and adopted W.A.Frick's one from http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...h-21-cyberpunk when that came out.
