The same thing was done on the Star Wars Episode III forums, 35 pages or something.

Suggest one name for Deus Ex 3. In case their plan was to drop the plain "3".




I've got nothing.

I don't think just DX3 is good enough, its boring and lacks imagination imo.

As for a possible name. No idea until I get to hear the official basic storyline.

After having seen the teaser, I kind of keep thinking of some symbolic "birth", re-birth... so.

Deus Ex: Renaissance
Deus Ex: The Awakening

or something in those lines. Though, I, too, don't have particular problem with just DX3.

AaronJ

I think The Awakening is overused, and Renaissance would kill me. But good contribution all the same.

The title is going to be very important. It will draw people to pick up the box and look at the back. If they see Deus Ex on the cover, most likely they won't be interested. They have no clue what the heck a "Deus Ex" is. That's where marketing comes in.

However marketing won't reach everybody. Which is why the title will be key in getting more sales for the game. Deus Ex 3 needs to have a title that people can relate to. A title that also shows what the game is about.

After thinking for a while I realized that Bioshock has a great title for itself. So Eidos needs to come up with a way to create it's own great title. The title I have come up with is the following:

Deus Ex 3: Entity Prime

Entity comes from the word being which comes from the word nature which was mentioned in the teaser trailer. Also they are trying to discover man's true nature or identity. (Teaser trailer)

Prime comes from the word best which it appears the embryo in the trailer is trying to be.(As whoever is trying to make it genetically superior)

Maybe the Deus Ex should be stripped from the title and just call it what it is, Entity Prime. Then underneath it could be "a deus ex game" or something like that.

That way people aren't scared or shrug it off as it being part 3 and them never having played part 1 or 2.

What do you guys think :cool: ? Just a lil concept box cover hehe using the first deus ex cover of course.

I sure hope they at least stick with "Deus ex".
And they will, because they are using the Deus Ex IP ;)

AaronJ
21st Jan 2008, 18:31
Entity Prime sounds like stupid Nintendo **** tbh.

I want them to stick with Deus Ex 3 actually, because you cannot possibly call a prequel "3".

Aspire
21st Jan 2008, 18:45
From what I've read (which may or may not be true) its supposed to be a prequel from DX1.

So I think maybe Deus Ex: The Awakening would be perfect as it would symbolise the start of the whole saga.

Dead-Eye
21st Jan 2008, 22:02
Deus Ex 3 is my pick. Maybe with a line under it like "The Chronicles of [player name here] ."

I'm seriously growing quite angry at the complete lack of enthusiasm being shown for my Deus Ex: Ballot Box suggestion.

/me begins grinding teeth and writing everyone's name on my bedroom wall (except for DXeXodus)

In all seriousness I'm surprised everyone is actually being serious. Nothing on these forums are going to shape the game. This is just a little community spirit outlet. The development studio is not going to mold the current project off of open community forum topics.
Beta forums are where that's done because only people testing and playing the game are really given weight in their feedback once production has already started on a project.

Let's be silly!

DXeXodus
4th Feb 2008, 11:19
@RedFeather1975: I think your name suggestion is wonderful.
Maybe there could even be a mini-game where you run around inside the box and try to count the ballots. It could be called ballotBash. great. :lmao:

So you can take my name off your wall pls

RedFeather1975

pauldenton
4th Feb 2008, 15:33
you are probably right redfeather we will be ignored unless they get to a section of the game they are stuck on and look for ideas from the feedback forums which is possible.

when they were making DX IW many of us could see the way the game was going and warned and shouted about it in the forums and we were completely ignored and we know what happend there!

we told them the game would be a disaster and it was, made all the more painful because we had warned them.

this time however i feel there just `may` be the odd glimps as they know that IW was a disaster because they didnt listen.
they wont change any major direction as the game plan is set but it could influence just a little in the details - possibly.
this would most likely happen when more info is revealed.

remember this isnt their game - its spectors, so they cant be too cocky regarding the fans and what defines the game.
still i dont expect to have any major influence through this forum - i am realistic about that.

BUT i think i won with my name, even if only us nuts read it -

deus ex - birth of the machine(c)

What do you guys think :cool: ? Just a lil concept box cover hehe using the first deus ex cover of course.

Sorry, I don't agree at all. Keeping 'Deus Ex' in the title is very VERY important.

Do you think that it would be a good idea for a Half Life 3 to be called something without Half Life in it? Like maybe Black Tower say. People would see the box and thinking it was a no brand game, probably ignore it.

Deus Ex has a reputation as good if not better than Half Life - so it certainly needs to keep the name Deus Ex.

I actually like 'reincarnation' because the title as a whole Deus Ex: Reincarnation kind of says to me we're resurrecting the first game after the second one killed it.

Not that that has anything to do with the content of the game.

But yeah, have to HAVE TO keep the Deus Ex.

AND even though sometimes the first or second games in a trilogy have special names, often the third is just the 3 on the end. It lets you know it's the last one - and supposed to be the most special.


Hell, look at the Halo 3 adds. Bungie only needed to use the '3' to get millions of people worldwide wetting their pants.

If it's a prequal, Genesis FTW. It might come down to the themes in the end, if nanites are the theme, and bio-augmentation is a new, incredible breakthrough that you're some kind of guinea pig for, Aryan or Paragon might fit quite well, despite the political correctness issues of the prior. as for joke names, Deus Ex: return of the most awesome rocket launcher ever to grace your processsor seems appropriate, Just pray that they actually bring back the weapon power from the first, none of this 2 headshots with a pistol crap I found on invis war.

Someone had hinted that this was going to be a prequel (I do believe it's on Wikipedia, although I may be mistaken), but if that's the case, I'd call it Deus Ex: Origins. This would tie in nicely with the trailer, which features an embryo, the origin of a human being. =)

Deus Ex, Derived from the term Deus Ex Machmina, the term refering to the greek theatrical technique of having someone hoisted onstage dressed as Zeus saying "I love you all, so I'm going to make everything better". You'll have to forgive me saying this but cheesy is what we can only aspire to with half of these names given the competition:p

29th Mar 2008, 02:41
I think the best name would be one that had seemingly nothing to do with the game, until the very end where it suddenly made sense. That, or Origin, for the reasons I listed a few posts back.

Deus Ex is a Greek theatrical technique in which a devine intervention or something else that hasn't been in the play before solves the problem. Which is kinda like exactly what JCDenton is.

Correction: Deus Ex Machina. Deus Ex is a video game ;) Literally translated (finally some use for my ancient Greek education) it means "God from the crane", where the crane (Machina) usually performs some last-minute intervention (but not specifically hoisting someone off or on-stage).

I think it suited the first game perfectly, but I wouldn't mind if they went with a whole different title, since pretty much all suffixes will sound corny, cliched, bland and pretentious (as it is with all suggestions here, no offence).

Dead-Eye, some of those were great, but some were too simplistic and bland.

Ghosts of the machine is probably your best title and it's something I'd probably choose over one of the latin ones that people have posted (even though every single one of those is excellent just for the sheer fact it's in a different language, and as we all know, different languages are cool and sexy).

Technically, "Deus Ex" is Latin, not Greek. It means "god from ... ". Machina means machine, which could be a crane, but doesn't nescesarily has to.
And according to Wikipedia: "Warren Spector, executive producer for Deus Ex, has stated the name was both meant as a reference to the various factions in the game who aspire to god-like powers, as well as a dig at the typical video game plot, which tends to be laden with "deus ex machina" artifices and other poor script writing techniques."

I know the phrase deus ex machina is Latin, but the plot device was first used and invented by Greek playwrights (and that's where I learned it from in school, as the phrase was borrowed from the ancient Greek 'apo mechanes theos', I mentioned ancient Greek as it's rarer in paying off than Latin). Machina in this context actually means crane (not machine).

How about just naming the game.

Deus Ex:Machina

I mean it would make sense since it would be the story before the story right?
Also since machines were more used back than..More than augs and so-forth
It would make alot of sense. Since augmented agents are gonna be in short supply. If memory serves me there was only one agents world wide that had
this and it was paul denton. If I am wrong feel free to correct me anytime now.

I say make a great game, a worthy follow-up to the original, and then just call it Deus Ex 3.

I know the phrase deus ex machina is Latin, but the plot device was first used and invented by Greek playwrights (and that's where I learned it from in school, as the phrase was borrowed from the ancient Greek 'apo mechanes theos', I mentioned ancient Greek as it's rarer in paying off than Latin). Machina in this context actually means crane (not machine).

Preaching to the choir here ;)

Hate to crash the party but Latin is closely related to Ancient Greek anyway :P

Latin is a member of the Italic languages and its alphabet is based on the Old Italic alphabet, derived from the Greek alphabet. Additionally much of the literature and philosophy studied by upper-class Romans had been produced by Greek (usually Athenian) authors.

Being Cypriot myself, a lot of the latin I hear during my study at university is very similar to the dialect Cypriots speak which is more closely related to ancient Greek than the language spoken in modern mainland Greece.

On a lighter note (don’t mind the pun) but I kinda like Deus Ex: Illumination.

If it's a prequel-
Deus Ex: Genesis

If it's a post IW sequel-
Deus Ex: Revelation

Both are upholding the copious religious imagery apparent in the first two games, and are fitting chronologically.

"Deus Ex 3" or "Deus Ex III" seems to be the title with the most votes so far. Yes... it could be so easy - get over it!

Just look at GTA IV, it's simple and ultra-successfull. Simple means easy to remember and easy to talk about without the need to use unofficial nicknames. The best names or designs are almost always the simple but elegant ones.

Gary_Savage
18th May 2008, 17:07
While I see your point, I still don't know why I like the idea of a second name. I really liked the IW name when DX2 was announced (though I felt it would have been a very appropriate title for DX1, at the time).

SageSavage
20th May 2008, 22:17
Well those second names try to set a specific mood. Of course it has to be the mood the game is actually trying to deliver. You like it because a good second name gives you associations of something you have desires for but I believe a good product doesn't need cheap advertising tricks like this.

Jerion
26th May 2008, 03:23
Sorry, I don't agree at all. Keeping 'Deus Ex' in the title is very VERY important.

Do you think that it would be a good idea for a Half Life 3 to be called something without Half Life in it? Like maybe Black Tower say. People would see the box and thinking it was a no brand game, probably ignore it.

Deus Ex has a reputation as good if not better than Half Life - so it certainly needs to keep the name Deus Ex.

I actually like 'reincarnation' because the title as a whole Deus Ex: Reincarnation kind of says to me we're resurrecting the first game after the second one killed it.

Not that that has anything to do with the content of the game.

But yeah, have to HAVE TO keep the Deus Ex.

AND even though sometimes the first or second games in a trilogy have special names, often the third is just the 3 on the end. It lets you know it's the last one - and supposed to be the most special.


Hell, look at the Halo 3 adds. Bungie only needed to use the '3' to get millions of people worldwide wetting their pants.

Gotta agree with that.

here's my ideas:

Deus Ex: Reloaded
Deus Ex: Revolutions

Crap....those have already been taken. :D And by much less worthy titles....shame.

26th May 2008, 14:36
There's really no point in speculating about titles at this point when we know very little about the game's plot (and what we do know has been gleaned from a trailer whose content might not even be definite). All those "cool" titles I've seen thrown around so far in this thread have, frankly, been terrible.

I just hope that if they do give the game a subtitle, they'll still include the "3".
There's been instances in the past where sequels lose their canonical position in the title and it means that to anyone oblivious of the series, it sorta looks like it could be the first one. Then people go all "this game is awesome, i'm a huge fan" and then don't realise they've still got 2 others they haven't played, and then I'll come along and say "call yourself a fan? play the first game" and then they'll be like "eww the first one looks horrible" and then they'll get murdered in their sleep.

It isn't a bad thing. A prequel would be terrible. I trust Eidos Montreal, but not enough for them to make a prequel out of a project that wasn't originally theirs. Warren Spector and Sheldon Pacotti have the only right prequel idea in their heads, and if that's where it's going to stay, so be it. I would actually prefer Coliphorbs' "standalone story" idea better than a prequel.

Seconded.
It is much easier and much more effective and believable (from the perspective of a company adopting somebody else's game) to advance chronologically from where the games left off. I bet Warren and Pacotti weren't totally sure of what was going to happen in the future, but they knew a great load about their own characters' back-stories, because that is how they have been defined. A prequel would simply put their ideas to shame, as well as being a tricky task to pull off. From what I've gathered from interviews and particularly from the words of Mr. D'Astous, I don't think Eidos Montreal are stupid enough nor disrespecting enough to make a prequel.

And what was wrong with IW in terms of storyline? Yes, game wasnt too good blah blah blah blah but the storyline was fine really....some of things were great - for instance, I actually liked the fact that JC had turned into a computerised weirdo. It shows that this world really is so screwed up that even our "heroes" can become corrupted by technology.

To my mind no. Marketing reason: casual gamers who do not know the DX franchise, and they are numerous, could think that they have missed too much and not buy it, much like with films.

DXeXodus
23rd Jul 2008, 04:18
I think from a personal point of view I would prefer the name to simply be Deus Ex 3. But I do agree with jordan_a's point regarding first time players and newcomers to the series. They may indeed feel that they are too far behind and there is no point in purchasing the game.

On the other hand, however, many people have only played the later iterations of game franchises. I ask alot of people about this sort of thing and the amount of people who have played Half-Life 2 but not the original is quite large. The same applies for most other franchises like Quake, Thief, TR, etc. So maybe the number doesn't matter then, they will purchase it anyway if it is marketed correctly.

Romeo
23rd Jul 2008, 07:38

To my mind no. Marketing reason: casual gamers who do not know the DX franchise, and they are numerous, could think that they have missed too much and not buy it, much like with films.

At the same time, to change the title so radically could cause them a loss, too. Take for example what Monolith with be doing with the F.E.A.R. franchise -- dropping the F.E.A.R. title (as Universal/Vivendi owns it), and renaming their game "Project Origin".

That's what I hope NEVER happens to the DX franchise, renaming the entire series itself.

Deus Ex [and byline] would suffice.

What I love to see is that they'll use the old DX text logo (custom logos [not just off-the-shelf fonts] is so lacking in games today). The logo for DX is art, which is an advertizement for the game itself. It's why I used it in my sig, and added the "3" (makes it look a little more technical, even). Hopefully, the devs will add a few logos for black and white backgrounds in the SDK (much like the DICE devs did with BF2142 -- helps with promotions).

That is so true. The text logo from the original Deus Ex looks like alot of love and effort was put into it and that is the kind of thing that represents a polished game and attracts people to it. Even though it is a small detail it can add alot overall.

I wasn't going to say anything about it, but after all the stuff I've seen and Rene saying that the Renaissance style was done for a veyr specific reason, AND looking at all of the background artwork for the game, I find it VERY likely DX3 will very soon become known as Deus Ex: Renaissance.

same here, I like Renaissance
or
Deus Ex: Prognatus Iterum
That sounds very Latin..
perhaps
Deus Ex: Primoris
meaning: first, foremost, at the top, uppermost
leaving the rebirth unsaid as machina goes unsaid. Primoris also goes with the idea of top cities, vertical building, and the fight for evolution threw technology vs the messy process of evolution. the black plague was a messy process of evolution that lead to the Renaissance.
A Transcendence threw technology.
Adam Jensen born again or the first person not to get Aug's just as prosthetics but to replace his arms and legs. There is morally, a big difference in that. Instead of doctor please don't save my other leg.. it's Doctor cut off my other leg. I want all prosthetics. Perhaps that is the hook. That is something that has powerful men interested... A living precedence to change what is known as prosthetics into Augmentations. A planned event. Huge money in convincing people to Augment themselves vs just making prosthetic limbs. So perhaps in game media is attempting to redefine prosthetics during the game. A subtle campaign to redefine what it means to be human, that the player may or may not pick up on. Why should a bot replace a human worker when a augmented human could do the job just as well. If prosthetics are better then the limb they replaced then they are "Augmentations". Thus to say humans shouldn't be augmented is to say humans should loose their jobs to bots. Perhaps some human purists argue augmented people are monsters.

Perhaps there is a clash between monetary systems and resource systems. People living in monetary system would be given different view of the New Golden Age of replacing all human workers with robots. Perhaps elites fighting a resource based economy. See The Venus Project for the idea of a resource based economy.

It'll probably be something lame like "Deus Ex: Genesis" or, even worse "Deus Ex: The Beginning".

Invisible war 2 - pre teen sellout version!

Let's hope not.

"A survey found the average video game player's age is 33 years old.
Surprisingly, 25% of the people that filled out ESA's survey were over 50 years old."

pre teens can disassociate from the complexities and that's OK.. To leave them out is to cheat your main audience.

I quoted this name idea in my other thread but I'd love it to be:

Deus Ex 3: The Fall of Liberty

I'm guessing the game will go a long way towards pointing out the restriction of freedom and liberty as we enter the new Orwellian nightmare society shown in Deus Ex, not to mention the hella cool reference to the first mission of DX1 at the destroyed statue of lady liberty.

It'd make for some pretty amazing box art too, the statue of liberty is an icon of american individual freedom something which is about to go the way of the dinosaurs by 2052 as we all know from Deus Ex 1 ;)

The problem is the dead language. Modern shoppers don't know Latin.
Deus Ex sounds like it's for some kind of slack-jawed sissy nerdy wordy type.
The words have to reach right out of the box and grab the customer by the attentionators.

Do Sex: It's Hawt!

Deuce X:The second mystery

Of course you do. Those of us who love Deus Ex love it precisely for it's literate depth. But we are in the minority and the marketing guys know this. Thus my satirical post. Look at the cover on Invisible War. A twenty something man who looked nothing like the game character with the hairdo of a 14 year old holding his pistol sideways like some kind of hip hop gangster. That's the marketing department's approach to selling the casual shopper. It does not fit the game but they tried. And they will try again. It's their job! Buckle up it's a bumpy ride from here to there! :)

It would help if we knew what the game was about (tries reverse psychology on EM to make them tell us about DX3).

I like "Deus Ex: Exordium" that Wildeheart said though :D .

Assuming its set when mods start to come in it could be called something like "Deus Ex: Origins" though, as in the origins of biomods :D .

Or Deus Ex: Renaissance...

If it ends up being a prequel in which we see the world starting to go to heck, the maybe something like "Deus Ex: Shadow's Edge" or something to that effect. Maybe "Deus Ex: Deep Breath" if the next one is "Deus Ex: Plunge".

The absence of sunglasses on protagonist Alex D or JC (it was a sin to have a JC minus the sunnies!) in Deus Ex: Invisible War, and the joyous return to form with AJ's awesome shades in DX3 makes me think this is quite appropriate:

Deus Ex: Now With Specs! :cool:

Shadows Edge is a little too reminiscent of Mirrors Edge (fantastic game, btw). But that got me thinking of this:

Deus Ex: Majestic Shadows.

It's almost as corny as Renaissance, but it hints at the darkness to come from Majestic 12.

It should be called Deus ExBox
That way it'll be really easy to market to the console market, specifically 360 users. The single player game could be a non-chronological set of one-off globetrotting missions, each set by a well known face from DX1, compiling a campaign that lasts four (4!) whole hours of gameplay. The jewel in DXB's crown will be the implementation of Xbox live technology into a co-operative, left4dead style play experience, with random players joining in your game at any point. There's pretty much no limit to the number of players, as the protagonists don't have any scripted lines, making the story telling exciting and compelling in the same way that FarCry2's is.

I know Eidos LOVES to give games subtitles, and just can't get enough of removing numerals from their games, but seriously, Deus Ex is bigger than they are.

Give it the grand "Halo" treatment and just put a number after it. It makes it more special.

4th Feb 2009, 02:20
Putting a number after a name that has been out of the spotlight for a long time is a bad marketing move (I'm still surprised Fallout 3 was released as is). Also, I hate putting a number on a game that is a prequel, because technically, it isn't actually Deus Ex 3 -- it would be Deus Ex .5. And to add to it, Invisible War and The Conspiracy (PS2 port) didn't feature a numeral either -- keeping with the tradition of no numerals helps to keep the names pure, in my opinion (and if they make a 4th or 5th, adding more numbers just starts to get hokey). More Latin at the end also doesn't bode well for sales.

I fully support a subtitle only (and it looks like that is the route Eidos is thinking of, with the new site and what-not).

And now, after all that typing, tying to support my opinion on having a subtitle, I don't actually have a good subtitle to contribute...

I like in sticking with the whole cyberpunk theme. Mechanical Soul sounded pretty good from luminar -- rolls off the tongue and intriguing. Or even something like Darkend Skies, or Artificial Dreams, or Automated Dawn. Something that alludes to blurring the line between biology and technology.

GmanPro

Its very simple. Add a subtitle if you must but, keep the 3.

The ElderScrolls series does it right. "Morrowind" and "Oblivion" are actual settings of the adventure. "Shadows of Amn" means absolutely **** to me.

"Shadows" is so overused in subtitles as well. In fact, there's a list of words overused in subtitles. Eidos should read that puppy.

GmanPro
4th Feb 2009, 05:58
BG2 took place in the country of Amn, and the shadows part worked well because it referred to to the dark and shadowy parts of the place. Major parts of the game have you dealing with the Shadow Thieves or Vampires, and at one point you go to the Underdark and epic adventure ensues.

What about Star Wars. You think it is enough to just call them Episode I - VI ??

Thief:
-The Dark Project
-The Metal Age
-Deadly Shadows

Neverwinter Nights:
-Shadows of Undrentide
-Hordes of the Underdark

Neverwinter Nights 2:
-Mask of the Betrayer
-Storm of Zehir

(It would be mega fail if they just called them NWN - expansion pack 1 and 2 etc)

Prince of Persia:
-Sands of Time
-Warrior Within
-Two Thrones

Dawn of War:
-Winter Assault
-Dark Crusade
-Soulstorm

You get the point. The subtitle doesn't need to just be the location for it to be good.

Oh and go play Baldur's Gate
