YES. The ULTIMATE PWNAGE.

Skul-gun is available as one of the easter-egg augs in Shifter, IIRC.

A lot of the easter eggs are really well hidden. Some are just in spots you wouldn't think much of.
I have yet to found skul gun.

Hablo is actually "I speak", since it's short for "Yo hablo". I believe you looking for hable (formal) or habla (informal).

Seriously, if Barrett can have an "arm gun", can't we have a skul gun? Maybe for a married guy with a small child, called Anton Hermann? Plz? :)

In most Romance Languages, verbs change with person and number. "Hablo" implies first person, whether or not personal pronoun is used. Whether or not it still requires a pronoun depends on language and context. In addition, in many languages, verbs change with mood. "Hablo Ingles" is indicative or interrogative mood. "Speak English, please" is imperative mood. Spanish is one of the languages where the difference matters. Just looked it up, and proper second person imperative form of "Hablar" is "Habla", so it should have been "Habla Ingles, por favor." Maybe a native speaker can confirm that.

What were we talking about? Oh yeah.

SCULL GUN WULD ROXOR.

Thank you!

And, as languages, Hermannese and Engrish are both pretty much the pinnacles of linguistic achievement, certainly unbeaten by such mundane languages as "English".

I'm not a native speaker, but I can pretty much confirm that my suggestion of Habla or Hable, with Hable being the formal version is correct.
I have some proficiency with Spanish and, living in Portugal, I also have a good degree of familiarity with the basics behind most languages deviring from latin.

Wait - did a thread about the obscenely cool idea that a skull gun might appear in the upcoming game as an easter egg or even a bonofide augmentation get sucked into a debate about proper spanish? Not even proper english?

I guess so, although in fairness my actual topic was hardly quantum mechanics.

It does seem quite a wide jump though, from skull guns to Spanish grammar.

Honestly, some lack of moderation in general lately, if you've been reading the latest posts from that troll account deus ex you'll notice yet another example of that.

I'm sorry if I helped contribute for the thread going off-topic, but in one of the interviews with Dugas' (the PC Gamer or Eurogamer one) his repply hinted that he didn't even know about the "I wanted orange" meme. It doesn't help my hopes of decent Deus Ex-related easter eggs.

Anyways sorry @ the OP again. My bad.

Oh SNAP!

So how would the skullgun itself work? Would your brain-waves be monitored and linked up to a system that calls down an orbital strike? Would you be implanted with some kind of delivery system yourself that would respond to wave signatures of specific thought patterns?

That's the way I imagine it, personally. Some type of mounted weapon, like in the MJ12 powerarmour or Anna's gun.
It could lead to several problems with pattern matching errors and to very dead old ladies after they steal the last bag of peanuts from the shelf. You really wanted those peanuts...

Right - it would take a great deal of training and practiced restraint to be able to use effectively if this were how the thing worked. I'll have to go back and read the original email that Gunther sent to get a better idea of what the thing is exactly.

Interesting fact: You know the PS2 version of the game, Deus Ex: The Conspiracy? Well, THE conspiracy was the Janitor's nerfing the vending machine. Oh sure, there were a few side quests featuring some other, global control gubbins, but Gunther's epic quest for vengeance and a drink was always the central plot pillar.

That explains all of the wine in France! On your next play-through, try to collect all of it, and then down it ALL before leaving. Good side quest, there.

I seem to recall there being a show on Discovery Channel that attempted to try the "Trench Gun" patent out, which was based upon having a revolver in one's helmet. It worked, but was absolutely awful. lol

Imagine the recoil! However, I guess you wouldn't need sights if the barrel is literally between your eyes.

Ah Gunther. You genius, you.

No, it was terrible for detecting where you were firing. If your hat was crooked, if you were looking off-axis, if your head was crooked, etc, you missed. And although recoil wasn't bad (It was strapped on tight), it could only fire a single round before manual reload was necessary. It was such a gong-show, I loved it.

No, the first few posts were Gunther-speak. If you read any of Gunther's emails in Deus Ex, you'll have found he can't spell for *****. Whether this is attributed to lacking intelligence, improper learning of the English language or a basic inability to preform delicate tasks with his augs is unknown. But seriously, Gunther cannot spell. At all.
