Typically, with the DX games, if you sneak around, you'll overhear conversations and by hacking, you'll get background contextual information. Talking to people usually nets useful info and backstory as well. That said, if you DON'T do those things and opt to slaughter everyone, you may not pick up as much backstory. There's usually datapads with information as well. So yeah, in a way, if you choose to handle yourself and become skilledin different areas, you might find information in a different way.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

Although if you go for the killing route, usually you get some special info as loot.
Like the guy who looked sick in DX and you find he had drugs in his inventory.

Alternate boxart cover of DX:HR for PS3

I don't usually like this sort of stuff, but I might do an exception with this one and print it.

Just finished to read the "review event" article and all I have to say is that I'm really impressed by the team behind this game. Over the last 2 years that I've been following the development of this title I haven't read one thing that I can complain or argue about, everything that I could ever desire from a video game is there and it sounds amazing.

Also, I loved your conversation about the game in the podcast guys. So yeah I couldn't be more pleased right now. :)

I can't QUITE say that. Not necessarily stuff I don't like at all, but the director's reputation and some of the comments made (like saying some things about the original were boring) did make it sound like the results could be dubious. The closer to release though the better it sounds, and all but shreds of doubt are gone at this point (and the shreds would be more along the lines of how it goes at the end.)

On a related note, it's been ready for pre-loading for over a day now and there's a ton of TF2 items for those who care.
