I question me one thing. Can the Player take off the sunglasses? Take off is probably the wrong phrase. I know they are mounted... Perhaps i can say deactivated, so that the player can see his eyes in conversations.

They said no, but he takes them "off" from time to time in the story.

Forget the glasses, what the coat ?, I think Jensen looks way cooler when you can see his augmented arms.

I like him more with the coat, the tac-vest he has on just seems a little bulky imo
And the coat is as much a part of DX as sunglasses or conspiracies

Adam's finished his shift. He's bouncing back home through Detroit...

"Don't tell me you are going to wear those sunglasses During a night operation"

"My vision is augmented"

In the director's cut trailer it shows Adam talking to one of his associates in his apt with the visors disengaged, then he engages them when he hears hostiles coming outside. As far as I can tell he always has them engaged when out in public or on missions to survey any possible threats. They aren't just "sunglasses", they are equipped with xray vision with which he can see through walls and even bodies to survey skeletal augmentations and monitor enemy movement.

I'm thinking the only time we'll see Adam with his surveillance augs down is in cutscenes. It seems to make the game look a bit on the Lynch side of Kane & Lynch with the dark lenses always in place. I suppose they could have had his mechanical eyes have polarizing filters built in and used a very opaque outer lens to the visor, but the dark lenses give the game a more retro look like it's supposed to have and with dark lenses, people can't see where he's looking when he's talking to them, so it adds a stealth element.

This game is just so bad ass with it's atmosphere and augmentations. I think my fave so far is the xray visors.

i think his sunglasses provide his smart vision, i know his retinas are augmented but i dont remember what they do, display his HUD i think.

his eyes might be extra sensitive to light due to the augmentations.

In the trailer I referred to they kind of emphasize the fact that right after his visors engage he can see through walls and even through bodies to examine their skeletal structure. As for his eyes, I thought the entire eye was mechanical vs just the retina. They appear to have a lens tube surrounding the retina. I could be wrong though.

in game it says retinal prosthesis and it displays the hud, sunglasses let you see through walls.

...sunglasses let you see through walls.Begs the question why people keep calling them mere sunglasses. I've yet to see any sunshine in the game, and clearly they are good for more than just blocking light rays.
