You get that warning no matter what, even if you see all the sidequests.

And yeah, people can play it however they want, this just struck me as the kind of game I wouldn't want to know anything about before hand and just blindly explore everything I could. Your way is your way, just a side comment really.

Weird, I swear there were a couple times I didn't even get warned.

Run #2 on DX mode will entail all the sidequests I didn't get. And
Code: [Select]
saving Malik this time, ARGH.

There are only 3 places where it happens I believe. Can't remember.

Are you trying to get any trophies/achievements or something? Because doing that isn't really hard, unless you don't want to kill anyone, then yeah, it can be a bitch, but by that point in the game I was so gung ho, kill all these motherfuckers that I found it quite easy. There's so much explosive shit all around that place that just popping off some well placed shots with the revolver will get it all done in a minute.

I suck too much at stealth to be a pacifist. Trophies, not really, I just wanted to get that done. Revolver worked great in that firefight I remember.

If you have the explosive upgrade, even better. Just look around for those fire barrels, they are all placed pretty much where the belltower dudes crowd around. Oh, and of course finding a good cover point is essential or they could overwhelm you. I forgot where I was, but I was in a really good spot where no one could get a great shot on me.


Just saw this video. Spoilers from the first mission in the game:

Man...you there really are a lot of freaking ways to deal with things. I don't think I'd be quick enough to pull that shit off though.

I... I didn't saw that one coming. So random (and tragic).

Rewatch that and pay more attention to the little details. It changes from tragic to hilarious.

And yeah, that's undoubtedly an oversight. Only way you can do that without cheating is to get every possible EXP point, and that's pretty ridiculous given the contrary demands you have to fulfill.

As for the guide thing: there's also varying degrees of HOW you use it. If you simply play through the game with it in the other hand, yeah, I have to wonder how you could enjoy it at all, but just checking to see alternatives after the fact, or simply checking to see the future ramifications I can understand. That spoils the experience some, but it's not inherently undermining the whole point, especially since often you'd be choosing between two different set of consequences anyway. Alternatively: You just want to see if something's even possible at all, like I did for one sidequest (I stuck with my original result, the only non-murderous alternative would've been a huge pain in the ass and require grabbing gear quickly.)

I think it MAY be possible to get it done, but you'd have to be really quick grabbing exp at Sarif Industries doing some hacking. Likely though it's from the hacking glitch. I wouldn't even want to attempt to get it done (personally I think the hacking glitch is too tedious to even be useful) but it's still pretty damn hilarious that it can be done.

And like I said, I'm not at all against guides, and yeah, you can use it effectively, it's just a personal feeling about a game like this where much of the reward comes from the sense of discovery (at least that's how I felt even though, as you said, it is largely a lot of either-or situations).

Deus Ex: Human Revolution now has ads on load screens.

Reddit (Click the tiny image for bigger):

Reddit on how to block that shit:

EDIT: Apparently they've been there already, just somehow not working or something =/
That or it's a hoax... hard to say.

To clear up some confusion...the ads were not included in the latest patch.

EDIT MORE:
Well, looks more real now since it's getting coverage

I've been using the latest patch almost all day and I haven't seen any adverts like that. Maybe it's not for Europe?

I didn't see this posted, so for anyone interested, there's some new information about the DLC.  It seems like a larger than average DLC, with 10 trophies/250 achievement points and has 2 separate compounds.

Unfortunately, no extra hub.
