I love Humble Bundles. I love that I can get a bunch of games that I’ve probably previously overlooked, all together in a sustainably discounted package. It’s also pretty great that a lot of the proceeds go to some sort of charity – so not only does my backlog score, but my conscience does too. I thought it would’ve been hard to top last month’s Star Wars bundle. Turns out I was very wrong.
I don’t know about you, but I totally did ask for this. And by this, I mean a long, flowing mane of glorious hair that makes the ladies flock to me. Hair in video games have always been tricky to master. SO tricky in fact, that most characters have military grade haircuts or ponytails that help keep processing to a minimum. There is one bit of tech out there that is genuinely trying to make video game hair a reality, and it happens to be AMD’s Tress FX. Technology that has evolved, and will be augmented in Deus Ex Universe.
I’ve always thought that Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a gorgeous game. It combined the future with the past, mixing warm renaissance ideas with a more technological age to create a unique look. Warm colours, fascinating fashion and sleek machinery combined beautifully. Whether the next Deus Ex game will also have such influences, isn’t exactly clear yet. But it will be a new Dawn for the franchise.
Way back before Deus Ex: Human Revolution was even an idea, there were plans in place for a third core Deus Ex game, that would have followed on from the events of Deus Ex 2: Invisible War. The game was never made however, but at least it lives on in one form or another.
One of my favourite games of the last couple of years, has been Deus Ex: Human Revolution. A flawed masterpiece, but a gorgeous one at that, it was exactly the kind of game that got me and gave me a great experience. Since then, work on Deus Ex has been quiet. There’s scant details on Deux Ex: Universe, but there is Deus Ex: The Fall. Which is now headed to PC.
I’ve spoken a couple of times about my love for 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It’s not a perfect game by any means, but it was a damn masterpiece in several other areas. But that’s not the end of the franchise, as next-gen consoles will be getting a taste of augmentation.
You can never have too many games. At least that’s what I said to my mom before she was crushed in an avalanche of Dance Dance Revolution and DJ Hero games. I’ll miss her, but at least I was right. Also, if I had bought online, she’d still be alive. Dangit.
The latest Deus Ex game was released yesterday, amidst a sea of players dropping the inevitable “I didn’t ask for this!” quotes. See Deus Ex: The Fall may feature cyber-hacking, but it has a problem with that idea in the real world.
It’s been a hopeful week, to say the least. With E3 around the corner, the gaming industry has been throwing Molotov cockteases left and right, and I welcomed them. One such tease was for Deus Ex: The Fall, this week. Fans were eager for a sequel to 2011’s Human Revolution. That’s not what they’re getting.
I loved Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Sure, it wasn’t perfect, but is was brilliant in its way. I’ve been wanting a sequel ever since I beat that game, and according to rumblings from the untamed frontier of the web, it looks like that sequel is going to be making an appearance at E3 next week.
The very definition of a flawed masterpiece, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a game that sits proudly on a shelf of games that will never ever be traded by me. I still love the game, and the soundtrack is a regular on my playlists during the day. And now, that cyberpunk Renaissance is headed to the Wii U.
Square Enix has filed a trademark pointing towards a title that could be the new Deus Ex game. Here’s what I think will go down.
You wouldn’t expect an espionage agent and an iconic animated mouse to have much in common, but you’d be wrong. Besides the fact that Warren Spector has worked on both of them, the link is more evident here, as Spector recently explained how Epic Mickey: The Power of Two shares quite a few similarities with the older property.
One of my personal highlights from Gamescom (and early frontrunner for the silly accolade of game of the year) was getting to play Arkane Studio’s Bethesda published Dishonored - which is pretty open ended in how you can approach each and every mission. Here’s a new video showing you the path of stealth - which is very, very reminiscent of the acclaimed Thief series.
It’s no secret that we’re all big fans of that flawed masterpiece, Deus Ex Human Revolution over here. But we’re also comic book fans, except for Gavin, who will refuses to pay up for two dozen pages of pretty pages and speech bubbles.So what happens when one of our favourite hobbies collides with one of our favourite games? You get this little gem of a prequel, which helps set up the events of the game itself.
