Re: Real-life Deus Ex

In many Deus Ex was and is real life. It was a commentary on the way things were back then and increasingly the way they are today: more than some people would care to admit . The writing is a patchwork of disparate ideas and the plot and characters quite scattered, but there are identifiable themes...

Re: lol Elon Musk takes a small dump on Mankind Divided

Echoing the general sentiment really in my opinion. I'm just happy that he has played and likes DX1.

Re: Hilarious Deus Ex Speedrun (AGDQ 2014)

Bump:

New run done at SGDQ 16 for those who have not seen it.

It's amazing how much faster this is than the previous run. Unfortunately not quite as funny as the above (imo) but still worth a watch.

Re: Deus Ex franchise on Hiatus after Poor Sales

I was not impressed by the writing or general story aspect of either game. Can't say I'm disappointed by the result. I was not impressed with the gameplay, and I get mildly agitated seeing so many give it a free pass. Like the story it's passable to good, but not Immersive sim-tier. Nothing really ...

Re: Deus Ex franchise on Hiatus after Poor Sales

Aside from the franchise crap they produced the two main titles were well-designed, coherent games, although I was disappointed that they failed to experiment or innovate with the latest title to any great extent (especially considering the relative success of HR). I was not impressed by the writing...

Re: Is marketing truly everything?

It depends where your values/interests lie. If marketing is everything then the most popular game with the highest marketing budget should be the best, but that is I believe the perspective of a select few people. Titles with vast marketing structures behind them can fail spectacularly if the qualit...

Re: GMDXv9.0 Announced

Yeah just chill out dude. You made a great mod, be happy : ) If anything you can put it in the hobbies section on your CV. You have to 'be the change that you see in the world.' Other people who share your interests and passions are out there. Find them. The above is coming from a ruthlessly cynical...

Re: GMDXv9.0 Announced

Deceptive marketing, sort of. It's just more of the same of what I've always done. GMDX has been dedicated to improving levels visually for about three and a half years now. Although the website does indicate that. The only reason it's become more of a focus this time around is because mostly every...

Re: Is it true new Deus Ex:MD split into two games?

Not sure about this but I am laughing my ass off at the DLC and microtransactions. Guess that's why the game only costs $80 NZD as opposed to the usual $99.

Re: What does everyone think of Deus Ex 4?

I was hoping that the reviews would be unanimously good but even with a few negative comments I will probably not buy this straight away. Maybe I'll wait until it's on a discount or something.

Beyond any incompatibility issues the developers themselves point out I would just put a disclaimer saying 'compatability not guaranteed'. : )

Re: What does everyone think of Deus Ex 4?

EM demonstrated in the previous title a strong grasp of the 'emergent gameplay' model where in each level, and across levels, there is potential for a variety of player choices with meaningful and complex consequences. They executed it very well while balancing it out with a rich, carefully designed...

Re: The Mechanical Apartheid: Deus X-Men?

Not a bad post desu. Remember there's always a difference between the marketing and the actual product but unsurprisingly they need the story to be politically correct to appeal to a mainstream, cross-platform crowd. If Sheldon Pacotti were writing he probably would have been able to sneak in some k...
