Sup chummers,

Looking to purchase a setting sourcebook for a live campaign. Since a friend will be running Hong Kong, I am looking to pick up Corporate Enclaves in a week or two. Tokyo and the City of Angels are two of my favorite cities in the world and the prospect of running in Neo Tokyo and LA is def intriguing. Trolled around the web and the only review I found was a poorly written negative one scribed by a angry fanboy/gamer.

Anyways I could use some thoughts, experiences, and opinions on this sourcebook.

Thanks in advance.

-SA, aka a laid back SR GM from North Jersey.

I agree. That's the same kind of nonsense response as "what was the last movie YOU made."

I tend to agree that L.A. has always sucked as a setting in SR, and this book made it worse--in part because I'm not a fan of Big Magic bullshit like the Lacuna. But I also think that Manhattan--being as it literally IS a corporate enclave--should have been the other major entry and not have to wait six months, a year, whatever for a netbook of what should have been in this book.
