View Full Version : Story Tie-Ins (DX to HR)

22nd Aug 2011, 05:09
So I just got done playing Deus Ex for (sad to admit) only the 2nd time. It was absolutely incredible. I can't believe how well this game stands up to current games over a decade later. It's actually funny now that I'm such a big fan of the series due to Invisible War. When it came out in 2004, I probably played it about 8 times all the way through...just in the first year. I now actually realize why everyone bashes it compared to the original. Still, I love IW for its nostalgic value if nothing else. I always thought the Omar were freaking cool. Anyway....

I noticed a couple things that were very cool that tie-in to the new game:

1) The bartender in Hell's Kitchen has augmented arms - She actually makes a reference to getting "early augmentation work done" or something to that effect.

2) When you read the description of the scrambler grenade notice the year:

"The detonation of a GUARDIAN scramble grenade broadcasts a short-range, polymorphic broadband assault on the command frequencies used by almost all bots manufactured since 2028."

It's just one year after HR takes place - I wonder if we will see any further explanation during HR?

Since I haven't played the original 9,000 times like most on this forum...what other cool tie-ins have you guys noticed?? (Obviously from the little content we've seen so far)

I played DE1 once fully, the month it was released.

So tie-ins will be either a nice surprise or will go unnoticed which in fact DE:HR really NEEDS. Without comparison or expectation, this game can shine. Too many people are expecting too much which is the developers own fault for advertising & giving away so much.

Gunther makes an appearance in the Deus Ex novel on the side of the Tyrants (Barrett, Fedorovovoasomething and Namir) so he may show up
