Comment System Shock! (Score 4, Insightful) 1120

System Shock was too far ahead of it's time. The interface was inventive, but not in a good way. The creatures were scary, but had no AI to speak of. The graphics were cutting the 90's. And they game play has inspired the industry in so many ways, what would happen if the industry returned that inspiration?

In EU models of the Mini Cooper, especially the Cooper D, you get many of the features of the Hybrid with out the battery:

1. Regenerative breaking (using the alternator to charge the battery)
2. Stop/Start engine (stop the engine at intersections, then, using the energy recovered from breaking, start it back up on demand)
3. Awesome milage

Of course, the USA model doesn't have these features. I'll leave you to speculate why.
