What would be cooler though. Taking someone out with a crossbow dart, or watching Adam Jensen knife a guy in the back with awesome animation and cool graphics?

Dugas said that there would be lethal and non-lethal takedowns. The system that they seem to have implemented is tap the mouse button for non-lethal and hold the mouse button for lethal. There are apparently ranged non-lethal options but no melee weapons with a non-lethal component.

They said you can tap the button for takedown to perform non-lethal one and you can hold the button to perform gruesome lethal takedown.

Also, there are a lot of weapons specialized for non-lethal damage (tranquilizer gun/darts being one of them)

I'm gonna try to complete the game with 0 kills on first playthrough (like I did with Alpha Protocol)

Edit: Ah, Iguana beat me to it ...

thanks buds! nice to know, love the light tap or hard hold for lethal/non lethal. sounds like a great visceral way to make that choice, could possibly lead to some "heat of the moment" regrets.

little disappointed about the lack of a melee taser aug. I like the thrill of sneaking up behind someone and shocking them. it's as fun as stabbing but with half the calories.

As far as I know, you can forget about that. I read somewhere that sneaking-from-behind-while-following-him-and-then-knocking-him-out is removed.
Forgive me if I am wrong.

Was it Belletete who said you can make it through the entire game without killing a single solitary soul? Or was this just a random unrelated thought from another interviewee?

I've heard it from multiple interviews.

I've read a few interviews that said that you can avoid all casualties and a few that said you can avoid all casualties but that you would still be forced into a few "boss fights". More clarification would be nice.

Yeah, so many interviews/artlicles to digest lately, my memory is shorting out. I just wanted to check that it was Belletete who said it.

BelletĂȘte has a nose, and below his nose is his mouth. And it was from this he's said a few weird things that's caught my interest.
