Deus Ex III-2

Wherein Megan, Pritchard and Malik band together to find Adam? Singing cheesy songs as they time travel and evade the Illuminati?

Seriously though, I hope it's more of a 'we need Wada to give the OK to make DX4/remake DX1/whatever' than him having anything specific in mind. Square Enix was very much hands off with DXHR, although they did the CG trailer and probably imposed deadlines and shit.

Adam needs to be augmented with more zippers.

And belts.
And a hat that pops out like his super cool shades.

TASTY!

And a bunch of random shit that pops out of his hat a la Inspector Gadget. Like scissors and binoculars.

OK I just beat it last night. Stayed up past my bedtime and powered through the final section. As I've said in another thread, it is easily one of the best new games I've played in recent years, and by far and away the best Western developed RPG (sorry Witcher 2, my computer sucks and I can't play you). I have only two pieces of criticism:

1. The bosses. Yeah, this has been repeated ad nauseum, but it really did bother me. For ever one of them I probably spent 20 or so minutes dying instantaneously before getting a handle on it. Considering the time it took to reload my save state, this was a major pain. And I was playing on Give Me a Story difficulty, if it matters at all. There's a lot more to complain about with them, but it's already been said.

2. Dungeons way too long. Don't get me wrong, they were designed very well with lots of neat things to find and ways to do things. I am was impressed at how naturally I was led in the right direction, even when it seemed like I wasn't sure if I was taking the best route or not. But towards the end of the game they started draining on me. Playing stealth games is taxing mentally. Making dungeons that long didn't provide me with the relief needed to calm down and relax. They needed more sections like Detroit and Hengsha to break things up.

Anyway, I'd probably give the game an A or A-. It'll just depend on how much those two issues really bother me two or three months from now.

Question: Are collectibles located in areas containing enemies it's possible to just sneak by?

Man, I put $10 into my Steam wallet to test buying the Fable III DLC (though that wasn't really necessary) and figured I'd just spend it on the Deus Ex DLC, only for it to be $15 instead. Well, I DID spend $5 of that on Red Faction Guerrilla yesterday to be Space Asshole, but it's still offputting. I'll wait for impressions, then a Steam sale if they're not favorable enough.

Yeah it's a little steep. But if Eidos says it'll take about 5 hours, it'll probably take me 7-8. I'll wind up getting this right away for sure. Dark Souls is driving me nuts.

I loved this game, but I'm not sold on the DLC...

I can't see how this game won't take me 100 hours. So much sneaking! And hacking!


Starmongoose let me tell you of the hacking.

The game really isn't that long. I only missed 1 sidequest and still managed to finish it under 30 hours.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

Yeah, it's not huge, but what is there is good.

In hindsight, though, there are some things I think they could have done much better. Mainly, it would have been nice to be able to go from city to city at will, instead of being hauled off to some location for 8 hours at a time. Also, there was some really obvious sections that were missing. Montreal city? Hello! But aside from that, I really loved the game to death. I'm glad the DL content is coming so soon, I'm likely to get it this time.
