View Full Version : speculation on augmentation

8th Jul 2003, 15:05
Hello, all.
I started this thread to deal with the subject of one of DX:IW's big draws: the nano-augmentations.
So far, I have heard of just 2 augs: energy absorption (black market, uses corpses for health), and bot domination (black market, remote control of a visible bot).
Just wondering if anyone had heard of any other augs.

My two cents- personally, I think that there is one aug that should be included: hyperfunction. Essentially, hyperfunction slows down the world around you while you move at normal speed (a lot like bullet time, except YOU move at normal speed). It would start at 1/2, move on to 1/8, then 1/16, and finally, 1/32 normal speed, allowing you to dodge bullets easily, and rendering your non-melee weapons next to useless.
Just my opinion.

The Gamespot preview of the game metioned that this is one of the available augmentations...
