Introduce yourself to the community! Don't be shy, life is too short (until we go H+) ;)

This has nothing to do with Deus Ex, per se, but rather the community here instead. Just a thread to see who everyone is, and a little about themselves.
This can also serve as a general random chat thread too.

To start, I'm Tristan, I live in a small town near Vancouver. I'm into cars (more specifically, design and modification), and of course, video games. Sorry if that's a touch vague. =P

Good thread!

My name's René and I'm from Vancouver (the big town, not a smaller one!), but I now live in Montréal. I'm in to video games and sports like hockey and NFL/CFL football.

Hehe, the introductions sound like we are sitting on the panel of "University Challenge". :D

My name is Julie and I live in West Wales, UK.
I'm into all sorts of things but particularly enjoy music, art, reading, writing, travel, sportscars and socialising.
I don't play video games a LOT... but only because I'm quite fussy about games I actually want to play. They have to 'interest' me (beyond that of a mere shoot-'em-up) a bit like a good book. Hence my love for Deus Ex. ;)

I'm Rory, from malvern, UK, and I'm into all manner of stuff. The list includes tabletop RPGs, video games, "what if" situations relating to just about anything, sci fi, but not trek, and insulting the prequal trilogy. Odds are, I could out nerd the average Linux employee.

Hmm, you can all call me John. I'm from Southern Oregon but I currently live in the Portland/Vancouver area in OR/WA (not to be confused with the other Vancouver) I'm kind of a slacker, really. But I do like history and all the social sciences, great music(pretty much anything except for Jamaican and lots of modern pop), and hanging out with good people while occasionally going to parties and getting drunk! And occasionally messing around with some musical instruments. Mostly rock-type ones! More casual interests are the occasional scifi/fantasy novel.

I just completed my first year of college, and hope to be out within about 4-5 years.

@Grunt Owner - You're into "what if" situations? Then you just might have to check out the new version of this site I'm at that should be launched next month! I don't like to spam, but we're a small community that will need more members to make it thrive. And the more the better.:cool:

Mostly I listen to prog-rock and metal, but my interests also dabble into electronic/ambient. Fav. band is Porcupine Tree.. I also like drawing, writing fiction and of course, videogames :)

Hi, I'm Faissal, from Bangladesh, though I live in New York City. I'm an electrical engineer, by training, though I sometimes wonder how what I am doing has anything to do with electrical engineering. Either they don't know what to call us, or the significance of what we are doing for electrical engineering is so secret, they don't want to tell us. [Can you guess which conversation, from DX1, I made this from?]

I am into free running (don't expect any impressive moves, though), sci-fi movies, and reading stories of human struggles (Seven Years in Tibet comes to mind) and experiences (Base 66 rings any bells?). My choice of games got me into my field, and now my field has taken over, much to the detriment of my gaming. I still binge, once in a while, though.

I dabble in 3D modeling, like prog rock like Absentia (P-Tree is okay, but they can't hold a candle to Rush, Yes, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, and OLD Genesis, among others), and like SF books and movies (anxiously awaiting the movie of Clarke's Rendezvous With Rama - and crying piteously that Keanu Reeves is starring in a remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still - Robert Wise must be spinning in his grave).

Hello, I am the mighty Aaron Jeans, award-winning unknown filmmaker turned virtually unknown filmmaker. I live in Canada, as far east as possible. The first game I ever played was Wolfenstein 3D and the ninth was Deus Ex. I am 15 and still trying to grasp the fact that the makers of Deus Ex 3 have a slight idea of who I am. Oh, and another thing about me is Deus Ex 3 will not be a prequel.

One and the same. In fact, my copy of TDtESS has commentary by him and Nicholas Meyer.

He also directed The Sound of Music, The Andromeda Strain (the 1973 movie, not the 2008 abomination), The Hindenburg, Westside Story, and 38 other movies, and was an editor on Citizen Kane.

Woah woah woah, theres going to be a movie?
Excellent. Amazing book. Amazing Books.


Anyways, 16 here, I was born in Hamburg, but moved to America at a very early age. Long time gaming enthusiast, Deus Ex being my second favorite series, Castlevania being the first. My personal goal is to one day work with the Castlevania team, and as such, I've been taking classes in animation. I wish there was a class on 2D game development around here, but oh well.

Yep: http://www.revelationsent.com/site/projects/in_development/rama.html

Note the star (actually, so far, the only actor listed). Also, this is the full Wiki entry for the film:

In the early 2000s, actor Morgan Freeman expressed his desire to produce a film based on Rendezvous with Rama. After a drawn-out development process — which Freeman states has been due to difficulties in procuring funding[2] — it now appears this will indeed be happening. IMDb, as of August 2007, upgraded the status of the project to "announced" with an estimated release date in 2009.[3] The film is to be produced by Freeman's production company, Revelations Entertainment. David Fincher, touted on Revelations' Rama website as far back as 2001, stated in a December 31, 2007 interview that he is still attached to helm.[4] IMDb indicates that Stel Pavlou has written the adaptation.

The novel is also known to have influenced the movies Alien and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.[4]

I'm Paul, I live in the Netherlands, am 16 years old. I have never read anycyberpunk books or watched movies like "the bladerunner". DX was my first experience with cyberpunk and I really like it, but for some reason I just don't read or watch anything else cyberpunk-like, but that could be because I never see them on the shelves.
I really like gaming (duh), but most games released these days are crap so I don't play many new games, most games I play are at least 2 or 3 years old. Finished DX about 12 times. Never play DXMP, I don't like it. Finished even DX:IW about 5 times.

Yeah, if I was going to list more bands I'd definitely cite Rush, Pink Floyd and King Crimson. And Opeth is brilliant too if you get used to the growls. Thought i'd keep it brief though. As for Genesis, i have Trick of the Tail and Duke, the former of those were awesome and the latter.. meh. I guess it depends if you're the "Everything after Peter Gabriel was terrible" kind of fan or not =P

In my Defense, I didn't drop-out due to laziness, or inability to do the work.

I'm 16 from England, and ive just finished high school, I chose to study Russian, ICT, and History as well as the compulsary things. Hoping to stay on at sixth form to study maths, chemistry and physics.
I'm into games, but i generally only play old ones, because my computers old, and i cant really afford a new console :P, doesnt really matter though, i play a game and finish it then forget about it, i can barely remember half of my games, only Deus Ex and Destroy all Humans.
Music.... im going through a strange phase where im not really into music, i listen to it, but i dont go and buy new cds very often. Its generally Aerosmith, or Weird Al (difficult to find any of his stuff in England :( .)

I love my music and I don't really think there's a day that goes by without myself putting some 'Tunes' on. :p Most of the music I listen to is from before the 90's like:
Pink Floyd
Led Zeppelin
Cream
Jimi Hendrix
The Who
etc.

Not a very big sport fan but adore Rugby. The only real interesting sport these days. (Who needs protection in sport?)

It's good to see who people are though. Gives everybody an idea on who plays our favourite games and the diversity of the age enjoying said games. :)

I'm Arash and I'm 25. I was born in Iran and moved to the Netherlands at the tiny age of 2.

The great love of my life is Kung Fu, though I'm way too lazy.

Right now I study Chinese Studies at the university, and Chinese medicine in the weekends. For the past year I've been learning Chinese in Taiwan, and I'm headed home next week, so I might not be on the forum very often after that.

I love games and I used to play them a lot, but I don't have the time to enjoy them like before.

I'm interested in almost everything, but especially philosophy, science, religion, etc. I love alternative ideas and viewpoints, even if I don't believe them myself.

I love all kinds of music, from Michael Jackson, Marilyn Manson, Lauryn Hill, the Beatles, Rachmaninoff, you name it. But at the top of my list is TOOL.

All kinds of movies too - but especially thought-provoking movies.

I'm Keir. I've been working at Eidos for seven years. The last five of which have been overseeing our communities. Up until recently, it's just been me doing the (impossible) job but now I have back-up, which is awesome for everyone so watch this space.

Aside from going to work and sitting on the internet interacting with online communities, I like to relax by going home and sitting on the internet interacting with online communities. I also enjoy beer, irresponsibly extravagant travel, watching and (rarely) playing footie/soccer, music technology and production as well as drawing (some times I even use a pencil).

Hey everyone, name's Tamika. I'm a teenage gamer, living in Adelaide, South Australia with a Greek background.

I love games, have been gaming since I was little. I'm primarily a console gamer (don't laugh at me ;) but play the odd PC game. My favourite genre would have to be FPS, while I don't really like most traditional RPGs. I love games with a fantastic storyline and great characters, hence my love of Deus Ex.

My other interests include music. I am a huge hip-hop fan, I have a strong passion for the art form. Some of my current favourites are Immortal Technique, Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Run DMC, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, and of course the local Aussie scene among countless others.

I also love movies, I'm a bit of a film buff =] I'm also passionate about history and am fascinated by it- namely WWII and the French Revolution.

I think that's all for now. Nice meeting you all =]

I'm Laura, I'm 22 and I live in Scotland. I'm an obsessive gamer, and general nerd. I'm into many things that end in "ism" (no rude jokes **** ). Been gaming since I was a toddler and still loving it, I also collect a few comics, and I adore movies.

My new computer means I can run, any game I like, which is epic, it means no more scouring the backs of boxes to check specs then whining about it for days.

I'm a registered nurse, I'm addicted to all kinds of music...pretty much everything from Rachmaninov to Blood Axis and Suffocation. Even the girly chick rock, sadly.

Anyway...that about sums me up.

Hi , my name is Jack , I'm french and I live in the south of france , near to marseille ( you guys probably don't even know where it is but that's ok =) .

As you can imagine ( for those who are aware of the poor number of English-speaking folks in France ) , I don't fully master english , but I think I can handle it .

I'll try to do my best but it should not be a problem . I hope so ..

Anyway , about me , I love everything that doesn't look like reality , it's quite simple like that , so including video games , movies , computers , anything virtual .. Geek talking !

My favorite experience ever has been of course Deus Ex 1 , something that almost changed my way of seeing .. a lot of things !

I'm in love with this game so badly .. The second one seems ok , I haven't finished it yet though , it's underway ..

I'm also a fan of matrix and blade runner .

So if you are a replicant ...

Hello Gizmostuff !

Romeo : Yeah , for many reasons I've stopped admiring this country , France is not on a roll these last years , as in economically than spiritually .. These are only a few examples .

Culture is dying and the old France is gone , lose its identity , next generations won't even care about it , Paris for instance is one of the only big fragments of what it used to be , but has become a place where only the rich can live , everything is unbelievably expensive .. So I can't get there because of that ..

France is a cliché country , all its beauty comes from what it used to be , from a past that we're more and more hardly able to keep up ..

As for the landscape , there's nothing unbelievable , trust me I've travelled a lot on my life and there are plenty of countries which proprose a way better .

Politics are awful , work is so hard to find , especially when you want a big salary :scratch: , indeed there's no science , no creation , no new culture economy is going down , however everything is so expensive that many of us start not being able to afford the necessary .. We are one of the most expansive country in Europe if it is the first and probably even in the world ..

And it's increasing as it comes , 4 percent of inflation this year .. :mad2:

Check out the gas , we're supposed to benefit from the eu and should have as a consequence low prices , instead of that it's three-fold superior than in the USA where we are told that there's crisis ... What can we think of that ?

French are always complaining but no one is here to propose any solutions .. So it's the big confusion , and I'm tired of that , but the worst thing is that French are sometimes ( not everyone of course ) arrogant and full of clichés , as soon as you ll talk them about " america " they can only tell you that they are all fat and stupid .. And that's all they know , they tend to believe france is the most beautiful country in the world and that the rest cannot match ..

They need to wake up in my opinion .

I just can't stand it anymore , some would feel fine in France , cause fortunately there are still some good points , or some good places like in the centre of France .

I wish I could go away .. Later maybe :)

France is a cliché country , all its beauty comes from what it used to be , from a past that we're more and more hardly able to keep up ..

As for the landscape , there's nothing unbelievable , trust me I've travelled a lot on my life and there are plenty of countries which proprose a way better .

Politics are awful , work is so hard to find , especially when you want a big salary :scratch: , indeed there's no science , no creation , no new culture economy is going down , however everything is so expensive that many of us start not being able to afford the necessary .. We are one of the most expansive country in Europe if it is the first and probably even in the world ..

And it's increasing as it comes , 4 percent of inflation this year .. :mad2:

Check out the gas , we're supposed to benefit from the eu and should have as a consequence low prices , instead of that it's three-fold superior than in the USA where we are told that there's crisis ... What can we think of that ?

French are always complaining but no one is here to propose any solutions .. So it's the big confusion , and I'm tired of that , but the worst thing is that French are sometimes ( not everyone of course ) arrogant and full of clichés , as soon as you ll talk them about " america " they can only tell you that they are all fat and stupid .. And that's all they know , they tend to believe france is the most beautiful country in the world and that the rest cannot match ..

They need to wake up in my opinion .

I just can't stand it anymore , some would feel fine in France , cause fortunately there are still some good points , or some good places like in the centre of France .

I wish I could go away .. Later maybe :)

I only visited it last summer, but from what you describe, it sounds alot like Vancouver is becoming.

For some reason, I think the same about America, but then, i'm pessimistic.
The culture isn't dying, but it might be fair to say it has stagnated. I don't really think there's been much innovation of any kind since the 90s. But it would be true to say our emphasis on education has gone down, in addition to the fact that personal responsibility is no longer considered the admirable trait it was in America, as far as I can see.

Not to mention the fact that our politicians suck.

The culture certainly hasn't stagnated where I'm at.
Kay, I live in CA (I can't watch any Arnold Foreign-Name movies anymore) every bus driver is Mexican, speaking barely any English, every fast food franchise employee (except In N' Out employees, who are white teens with terrible, terrible acne) speaks a garbled Spanglish, no it doesn't even deserve that, they speak Crunk. My neighbors, excluding one family that is actually legal, are illegals. Now I'm all for immigration and stuff, but illegals are committing a federal offense, and yet people defend them.

Though the Fourth of July fireworks are great, they bring in those nice high-altitude mortar fireworks.

Still, at least you can afford to survive there. Housing is at record highs here, food's more expensive (and it was expensive to begin with), gas is overly expensive (Carbon Tax, GREAT %@^#ING IDEA GOVERNMENT) and pretty much everything else is climbing in price... I think we're trying to evict the poor from the city.

I don't need Deus ex 3 to be better than Deus ex,just live up to the original.And I swear if Eidos Montreal screw this one up I'm gonna buy a plane ticket to Canada and C4 the whole studio >:( along with myself because I have no more reason to live without Deus ex :(

The mod beckoned, and I was compelled to follow.

I am Samuel Johnson, I live in the relatively wonderful city of Melbourne in Australia (it's better than Sydney). I'm currently studying for a Bachelor of Arts, double-majoring in Philosophy and Theology; though so far I've also completed units in anthropology, history, logic and Sanskrit (don't ask) as well.

My interests (besides the ones I've formally studied listed above) include video games (PC gamer all the way, particularly RPGs), martial arts (traditional and MMA), Parkour, cars (although I confess, I'm not half as knowledgeable as I would like in this area), exercise physiology and fitness, being an a-hole (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=MNzZzsvOClc) and being evil (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=WUITn7I9-f0).

I used to be a big fan of alternative rock (and some classic rock) with a bit of power metal thrown in there (mostly just Dragonforce). Nowadays I listen to trance the most though after a friend exposed me to Armin van Buuren's radio show A State of Trance. I'm still trying to understand how that happened since I hate techno and generally just assumed all electronic music was crap. o_O But yeah, I'm really loving the trance surprisingly.

Hmm... what else? Currently I'm just stacking shelves at a grocery store for work, but the hours are flexible and the pay is decent for my age so it works for me. In high school I wanted to join the army ASAP but that has tapered off now. I still maintain a significant interest in the military and intend to join Army Reserves eventually, but I'm waiting a few more years first.

Anyway, I guess that's pretty much everything. Now you all know me like the backs of your hands. Or something.

I simply could not take another year of the never-ending crap.

Did you fall asleep in school, too?

10th and 11th grade I spent more time sleeping in class than not, bored to tears. What I wanted to learn I was pigeoned-holed by teachers. Asian=smart=you get the hardest courses (and I proceeded to flunk them in rebellion, so tired of racial stereotypes). My techie relative just out and out quit school, so tired of teaching the teachers their own lessons (he spent his class time reading sci-fi and comic books to their chagrin... he's the "N" in nerd!) and joined the Job Corps, where he broke some of their academic records...he's Mensa qualified.

Sad state of American education is that it's either too relaxed (does my bad grammar show??), or now, too rote. Creativity is lost to be but a corporate machine.

Nice thread....

I'm Jeff and I am 15 and from Crystal River, Florida, but I currently reside in Irmo, South Carolina. I am going to be a sophomore at Dutch Fork High School.

I will say that, just like 99% of the people here, I am a Deus Ex fanatic. I remember getting it at Ft. Jackson in 2003 for my Playstation 2. I was 9 at the time xD so I didn't really get the story much at all because I was so young. I beat it and put it away for a LONG time, a few years, not knowing of it's full potential.

About 8 months ago, I was looking through my ancient PS2 stuff (my PS2 is 6 years old) and came across Deus Ex and said, "What the hell, I'll give it another go." Now that I was much older I was so fascinated at the story and how ingenious it was that I just kept playing it over and over again just to unlock more of the invigorating and never ending plot. I started playing it non-stop, sometimes taking up 6 hours of my day. I then "obtained" the PC version just to play it and then I played Deus Ex 2. I played it once, and I was disappointed to say the least. It was still a good game but they made JC look like a fool.

Because of my intense liking for Deus Ex, I tend to let others around me know that as well. When I mention that game at school all the kids are like "ZOMG ZOMG j00 4r3 t3h n00bz0rzzz j00 like t3h stup1d g4m3zzz h410 thr33 fTw!!!11!1!!!ONEONE!!1!". I don't even know of one person at my school that has ever played Deus Ex. It disappoints me so much. All the so called "gamers" are concerned with are, like someone said before, flashy and great graphics like Halo, Call of Duty, Crysis, etc. They are all still good games but graphics aren't everything.

Deus Ex is probably the best game that I have ever played. Number 1.1 being Frogger 3D.

So there you go, that's my introduction :D

My favorite games include: Deus Ex, Marathon series, Starcraft, Diablo series, Warcraft series, Sins of a Solar Empire, Assassin's Creed.

Howzit there
Deus Ex is Definitely my all time favourite game NOT simply because of it's intricately thought out plot and amazing characters, but because it's a futuristic pure innovative and challenging RPG!

BTW Awesome that you like Assassins Creed!
it's quite similar in way to that of Deus Ex
as in the main character agent JC Denton 'sets out to combat terrorist forces, which have become increasingly prevalent in a world slipping ever further into chaos'
seem familiar?
thought so

I too have a passion for New OS sytems and Pc systems building

Star craft and war craft are pretty kiff too
but nothing can compare to the upcoming Spore!

Because of the nature of the internet, I am not willing to provide my name and location. But I would like to provide something.

I may be the only one here who has not played a large number of different games. Before Deus Ex, I had played some early games such a DOOM, but more as a curiosity, than anything else.

I installed Deus Ex 1, which came free with my graphics card, because I could not figure out what it was about from the text and pictures on the sheet that came with it. That got my curiosity up. I was just trying to make sense of it all. And when I started to play it, I was impressed by the balance between the muisc and everything else, like some real artistry had gone into it.

I played it over a long time, a little at a time. I was amazed when the credits rolled by that the game even had an end, and concluded: "That was a movie!"

I also played Deus Ex IW with a very high level of commitment.

But I have just not been interested in any other games, inspit of the fact that I am friends with people who true experts, and play many different games.

So you can be sure that I would not be in any other game-related forum. That is simply the truth.:o

Once you played DX, playing other games just isn't the same. It's why this game has some really dedicated modders that tries to keep the game alive almost a decade after it's release.

To this day, I haven't found a game that played like DX. At the state of game development now, probably never.

Hey all, I'm Clucky. Pleasure to meet you all. :)

I've been lurking on these forums since the beginning and began to think that I should make an account for myself, especially by now. And so here I am. If it is anything to you I'm in South-East England, but may emigrate to Canada soon. But that's unlikely, because my wallet has more flies in it, than anything else. ;)

I am incredibly excited about DX3, having played the original all the way back when. It was a truly innovative game, and I must admit disappointment with IW. It was a good game in itself, but considerably pales to its predecessor, and I think that this is a clean slate for Eidos, a chance to return the universe to its appropriate state. I wish them good luck, and hope that they can, once again, set an example to the many budding game developers out there, and pull the industry out of the hole it has dug itself into. ! :D

Oh, and thank you for having me! ;)

Hello, I'm Piotr (peter) from Oakville, Ontario. I'm going into 4th year at the University of Toronto studying Materials science and engineering, and after that hopefully graduate school (within the realm of nanotechnology).

I'm into learning about a lot of random interesting subjects, ranging from sci-fi to the supernatural, to psychic and metaphysical possibilities. Deus ex was an important game for me, just because it built up my imagination at what could be possible with nanotechnology, so it helped push me into that field where I could hopefully do amazing things similar to what I saw in the game.

I'm also learning about enlightenment, the higher self, and awareness. So if anyone's into that and would like to share some resources with me, please do! Looking forward to DX3 :)

My name is Steven. I live in a nice quiet community in Noblesville, Indiana (USA) and consider myself a gamer (though not hardcore...yet). Deus Ex remains my favorite game of all time and I consider it the greatest game of all time. I must have played it around two dozen times in the past 7 years and each playthrough is just as fresh and enjoyable as the last (yes, I'm obsessed).

I do have interests in other things, however, such as computer hardware (I'm quite the nerd, though I don't look like much of one) and the paranormal (ghosts only, and I'm a skeptic, not a firm believer who preaches their existence to everyone).

I hope to get a great job working with computers and go "ghost hunting" as a hobby, most likely in an existing team, and still save some free time to (hopefully) play DX3 sparingly over the next half a dozen years or so (assuming it's of DX1 quality, but I'm keeping my expectations as low as possible).

That's me in a nutshell.

Have any of these 'ghost hunter' teams ever actually found any evidence yet? There are plenty enough TV shows along those lines - you'd think skeptics would have been given a run for their money by now if there was anything to it. Personally I have quite an open view to the supernatural, but I maintain skepticism in the face of no evidence.

There's a difference between skeptism and debunking. True skeptics will "believe it when they see it". It's the debunkers that are doing the anti-whatever with the supernatural and non-mainstream ideas. Their agenda is as evil as those selling snake oil as cures, as they lost the ability to be objective.

SubTonic20
27th Jul 2008, 12:15
I personally don't believe any ghost hunting team in existence will ever have good enough evidence to prove to the skeptics that ghosts exists. The thing is, I have to agree with the skeptics' points as to why this is: they simply could be hoaxed, a trick of the light, a reflection somewhere, matrixing, you name it. If I see a piece of evidence, I'll take it for what it is and be excited, especially if my own team got it, but I doubt I will ever be able to say it is proof.

I believe in debunking as well, but I keep an objective mindset as always with such things. I basically have the mindset of the founders of the TAPS team (Jason and Grant): You go into a supposedly haunted location, listen to the witness accounts, then try to find ways to disprove what they had seen/heard/felt. If you find something that just can't be explained scientifically, you're left with the possibility of something paranormal. Is that still proof enough? Hell no.

I'm going into ghost hunting because I just want to have some fun. I love the thrill of being scared by the unknown and it would be incredible to be on a team dedicated to investigating well-known haunted locations. I'm not expecting to find evidence to shove into skeptics' faces. I honestly couldn't possibly care less.

Debunkers, not skeptics.

Debunkers are the Amazing Randi et al types who angrily go on a crusade to "rid the world of pseudoscience". They absolutely refuse any evidence that will question their own bias (which in itself is anti-science, no self-checking allowed, which is required in the scientific method). So even if 2000 peer reviewed journals with excellent and sourcing and controls agree that XYZ is true, they'll still claim it's "pseudoscience". They prefer to "move guideposts" on definitions and requirements of fact checking.

Skeptics will doubt until evidence comes in, and if the evidence is sound could adapt to accept it as true. The important thing here is they "will believe it when they see it" not just claim so. Provide them those 2000 journal articles, and they'll accept it as a "burden of proof". More and more folks are calling it "healthy skepticism", to counter the debunking label.

Problem is the former has hijacked the term so much, that now anyone who is a skeptic is regarded like them -- angry and closed minded. And it appears by your statement the damage has been done. :(

Since you're interested in the subject, here's an excellent read for you (especially if you still want to stick within the framework of science)...

http://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~bdj10/

What's important for you is to ignore the critics/skeptics/debunkers and hollers, and just persue whatever interest your prefer. If everyone believed them, we'd still be riding horses today and living a 19th century dream. ;)

The link above will take you to some examples. Sitting here following some as it is. Some of the links are dead, but some like this are a good read...

http://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~bdj10/propaganda/

Follow the links below the page, especially the "A Who's Who of Media Critics".

The beauty of it all is I can follow such links. If these debunkers had their way it would've been censored. Want to read the pro and con, and make up my own mind, not be spoonfed what XYZ thinks is the "truth".

ADDED: If you tire of chasing all the links, here's a front door...

http://archivefreedom.org/

Also read up on what's going on at arXiv.org about gatekeeping, for example...

http://archivefreedom.org/freedom/letters.html


What is very disturbing about this illicit censorship is that it seems to originate from complaints mailed to the archives (to Paul Ginsparg) from unknown sources about some particular individual resulting in the black-listing of that particular scientist and/or related work. Even more disturbing is that the scientist is found guilty without ever knowing WHO the accuser was, nor WHAT is the thing he is being accused of, and without any chances of defending himself/herself. Once your name is in the blacklist, all FUTURE papers, without any peer-reviewed study, irrespective of form and content, correctness....are systematically removed. Due to this horrendous Scientific-Gulag practices, there are suggestions being proposed for an UNESCO take-over of the Los Alamos-Cornell archives. I hope this happens.
The trend with debunkers is to demand so many "peer reviewed" journals as "proof". But when the gatekeepers keep research they disagree upon out of archives...ah...see the problem? The debunkers ask for what they know can't be produced, not because it doesn't exist, but because the warehouses won't allow it on their shelves.

DX like, huh?

That's not science, that's politics.

I'm Jimmy Rabbitte, named for the character from the Irish film "The Commitments". I live in Seattle, enjoy playing vidya games and reading about math, science, and technology. I am a college student and aspiring Physicist.

I am a diehard PC gamer, the day after I got my very first PC in 99 I went out and bought Half-Life. (I was enthralled the moment I watched a friend of mine playing the game at his house). I hope I don't disappoint you all when I say that Deus Ex isn't my favourite game, HL takes that position with DX a close second. It was Half-Life that actually engendered my interest in Physics.

Second game I ever got was Warcraft, and though I'm not a big fantasy fan it was my first strategy video game. DX was the third game I got, I bought it the week it came out. I won't lie, I didn't really understand the philosophical mumbo-jumbo at the time but after I read about it on some forum when I was 15 I went back and replayed it, this time scrutinizing everything. It wowed me ten times more.

I'm sure the mainstream would probably look at transhumanist philosophy as whimsical but I think a better response than "It's impossible" is "What if? and why not?"

I don't buy many games, takes alot for me to get into one, so it was surprising that when I started playing Deus Ex I found I couldn't put it down :nut: .It was completely engrossing, I didn't stop till I played out every scenario and read everything/talked to everyone in the game, heheh.

My name's JF, I'm 25 from Quebec (woo!) and I'm a 3d modeler working on PS3 and 360 titles, racing games to be precise. Been a huge DX fan since it came out, like all of you I can't keep track of the amount of times I finished it! And like you all I was mostly disappointed by DXIW but I'm very excited for the third instalment. I have faith in the boys down in Montreal and I'm sure they'll do a great job.

So that's that. I'm hoping Eidos will organize a visit for their fans in the near future, who knows maybe I could get a sneak peek :)

Edit: My nickname will be familiar to Final Fantasy fans, I've used the name Cactuar on several forums so a Cactuar of the augmented variety seemed to fit the bill for this forum :)

I'm Shaun from Dartford, England (right next to London). I've loved gaming since I was 5, first started playing classics on the Megadrive like Sonic1&2 and if anyone remembers, Pete Sampras tennis (greatest ever tennis game!!).

I love football, playing it and watching as well films and to a lesser extent books. My fav films are Requiem for a Dream, π (pi), Shawshank Redemption, Pans Labyrinth and Grave of the fireflies.

I've been known as Rob/Robert/Bob/Bobby/Bobo(!?), I'm from Cardiff, Wales and I'm currently studying Creative Computer Game Design at Swansea Metropolitan University (Was named Swansea Institute of Higher Education, I still prefer that name personally, you don't have to be institutionalised to work in the games industry, but I suspect it helps), in fact I'm typing this from a hotel room at Brighton where I'm currently attending this years Develop conference (And wishing I'd chosen a hotel slightly further from the main streets, its a bit loud out there tonight).

I'm particularly interested in the depth of gameplay that arises from co-operative and larger scale versus warfare (That means, far more players on the battlefield than 32 vs 32) and a strong belief in giving the player as much choice as possible.
For instance, take the Master of Orion games, the original was fast, slightly simple but most of all fun, the sequels had greater complexity and multiplayer but started to get bogged down by the complexities - But why are we insisting that the players have a deep or simplified game in each release, why not have a sort of sectioned pie chart during universe creation where the major elements are divided down (EG ship building, ship combat, planet management, etc) and allows the player(s) a choice between a deeper complex game or a fast paced fun game, providing complexity scales needn't cause significant duplicated work either, if done right. And it naturally complements a modular game design, because at each complexity scale you essentially plug/unplug a different module.

Oh, and whilst I'm here, I noted from one of the sessions today that apparently we put too many light sources into games - Why put a light in every alcove of a porch when a single appropriately bounced sky light can do the job for you whilst also making it faster and easier to make changes to the fewer lights and possibly even make the environment feel more real in the process.

On a sidenote, the type of conversations that you hear from the scientists in the first game is remarkably similiar to the conversations I hear at work while in the elevator or just passing a different lab bench.

I took a chance on Deus Ex back in 2000 or 2001 and I was blown away by the story and how the game immersed me into the story and environment. I have to say that even as old as it is, (not really that old to me, but maybe it is by gamer/industry standards) it is still a great game.

Hi

Im Overtime! I live in Geneva but I am a student in London reading Physics.

I played Deus Ex a few years after it was released. Never liked the demo as I expected it to be a FPS!!! When i kept dying i gave up and shelved it! However, one day I saw my friend playing the game. I decided to give it another chance...

Stunned...The conversation at the top of the first level sealed the deal for me! The graphics were dated for the time i was playing it but the storyline was just phenomenal, the depth of the gameplay was immense. I realised just how mistaken i was to treat the game as a FPS!
Turned into one of my favorite games of all time.

Highly anticipated Deus Ex:IW. My main disappointment was the storyline, didn't feel it was as deep, intelligent and immersive as the original. I felt the overall ideas were good but it wasn't executed correctly.

Going to be more cautious with DX 3. Though im trying to suppress the excitment!!! If I have any comment to the devs for Deus Ex 3, please, please get the storyline right...If you get that right, everything else will follow. (for me at least!)

Anyhow, glad to hear DX 3 is in production.

I'm LatwPIAT. I'm a sucker for everything cyberpunk and/or heavy storyline, so Deus Ex was a match made in Digital Heaven. Couple that with my love of open gameplay, and well, Deus Ex is slowly reaching the same level of obsession I have for Ghost in the Shell*...

Have played Deus Ex over the summer, for about three months now, I'm on my second run. Trying to all confrontial, but I keep sniping people with the pistol. Oh well, I've made a vow not to hack, or upgrade any non-weapons/enviromental skill, so I'm doing fine.

Anyways, I'm hoping Deus Ex 3 will be as good as it's predecessor.

(*Anyone notice the Helios Ending is a cut-down version of the dialogue from the 1995 GitS movie?)

TrickyVein
18th Aug 2008, 15:29
Hi everyone
Looking over these forums, I think their are many great minds here, specifically, because Deus Ex is a sophisticated and intelligent game. Its more than a diversion or a stress reliever, more than just "fun" to play - like any great movie or book, composition or work of art, the game challenges the player to care and become emotionally involved. I don't play many games - but I do play Deus Ex and have yet to really find another game like it.
Maybe some will challenge the view that playing games is a waste of time, something little better suited for than building hand eye coordination and reaction time - that all those hours could be better spent doing things in [I]real[I] life - but I tend to disagree. As far as the human mind is concerned, I don't think any distinction is made between what is real and what is not. Things in and of themselves are meaningless and hold no value that the mind does not first impose on them.
If its engaging, intelligent, challenging and replayable, then by all means, go for it.

Hey guys, I'm Dave.
I live just outside of Toronto, Ontario.
I've been an avid fan of both Deus Ex games since release, and have completed them numerous times.

I'm a lover of video games, and even more of a lover of First Person Shooters (raised on Doom and Duke Nukem baby ;) ). Upon playing the first Deus Ex game, my standards for FPS/RPG titles were raised very high.

I can't wait for DX3, I'm highly confident in you guys being able to live up to the legend of the first game, and improve upon everything (and throw in some new features).

Also, if I ever make my way to Montreal, I think you guys should give me a tour ;)

Just remembered to throw this in, I loved the story about the earlier games, because of them, I looked into a lot of the content myself and am now also an avid conspiracy theorist.

Hi everyone, my name is Nick (a.k.a. panzii) coming to you from the country of Japan. I am a fan of Deus Ex, like everyone here. It is one of the few games I replay every few years.

Hi, I'm Mindmute and I'm an alcoholic (considering the thread is 8 pages long, someone probably already made the AA joke, but I just couldn't help myself).

I come from Lisbon, Portugal and I'm a university student, with acting and music as my hobbies (other than Deus Ex).


I usually read a lot more than I comment, but I'm around here watching all of you, even if you don't know I'm there.

Hey all, my name is 3nails4you, and lots of people call me Snails (Apparently 3 is quite confusable with S for some).

I am a student at UNC Chapel Hill. I've loved gaming since watching my dad play The Legend of Zelda on our old Nintendo around age 5, and it has been my main hobby ever since. I'm a part of the Christian Crew (www.christiancs.com). We're a Christian CSS and TF2 based gaming clan. I've been insanely into DX since I was 10, when it came out. Being such a tender age, I refrained from advancing TOO far into the more difficult levels until I boldly hit the age of 11 and a half (being that young was great, huh?), but I played that first level like crazy. I could seriously get inside the front door of the statue with no damage while blindfolded (never tried it, but I'm pretty sure). When we got a newer computer, however, the original game wasn't compatible with the system D: but I recently bought it through Steam so I've been able to get my fix again :D.

Other than gaming, however, I enjoy programming, playing Flag Football, chillin' with my homies, etc. That's basically me :D

Welcome man! I would say 3 is a bit confusing when trying to portray an S.... maybe 5 would of been more recognizable. :)

Ugh...ok, here goes.

3nails4you (or Three Nails For You) is a representation of the three nails that Christ took on the cross, where He was sacrificed for the salvation of mankind. Literally, Christ took 3 nails 4 you. People just sometimes think the 3 is supposed to mean S for some reason. Therein lies the confusion.

Hey all... just joined today because the new magazine scans got me all jazzed about the game. I saw a lot of negative reactions on here so I wanted to join and put some positive comments in.

I'm an old PC gamer who played and loved Deus Ex back in the day. Cyberpunk is one of my favorite genres, so any game in that vein is something I love. I'm mostly a console gamer now, so I played Deus Ex IW on Xbox, and enjoyed it a lot as well.

Hello there!

My name is Morten and I live in Denmark, studing media science and aiming for a degree at the Danish Academy for Digital Interactive Entertainment, DADIU. In short, I hope to work with computer games. :)

Deus Ex was one of my original motivations for going down this road, and so far it has been very interesting! I've done countless analyses of different games, both for fun and for school / high school / university...

I'm looking forward to keep my eye of d00m on this very interesting project!

Good game, y'all! :)

Hi all, it's about time for me to introduce myself, so here we go. I'm Nico from Finland signing on. I am a polytechnic student currently, I've been in army also - as almost all in Finland have. I am a avid (PC :rolleyes: ) gamer and looking forward to Deus Ex 3.

Deus Ex is on my top 3 games of all time, so I have rather big expectations for Deus Ex 3. I do a lot of level design/making on my freetime, or learning to do. Same goes for 3D modeling, which is another hobby of mine. I haven't had time to participate for mods so far, but that's something I intend to do in the future.

It's fun and exciting to see how Deus Ex 3 turns out :)

Hey what's up everyone? My name is Greg and I'm a musician/philosopher.

I live in Poland right now, but I used to live in US for 6 years.

While I was living in America I stumbled upon a game that i must personally say is the best game I have EVER played. I got into Dues Ex right away not only because of its high roleplayability or its overall amazing and interactive gameplay, but also because of the game makers' views on politics, and the way they saw the future of the world. Too bad they disbanded because I must say most of the people in that company, if not all, were really on to something.

Anyway it seems Eidos has taken over the game now and though I doubt it will be anything close to the ideas of Ion Storm, I hope that I am at least a bit incorrect and will be suprised. :o

It appears that Eidos Montreal are doing a lot of things right with this title. With many respectful nods back to the original Deus Ex, while still keeping things new and fresh. I believe our beloved game is in good hands.

About 7 years ago i couldn't resist to my big wish and with a few russian comrades i've been started a website deusex.ru which eventually become planetdeusex.ru - the first and only russian community's portal with the full amount of gameinfo.
I remember period when DX:IW was creating. Each bit of new info, each concept, each word from Ion Storm guys about IW - it was so BIG, so stirring and fantastic... And now i can surely say that i feel the same with waiting for Deus Ex 3. Whatever it will be at the finish (i just want to think positive about that (= )

But still, first Deus Ex is my favorite. Forever.

Oh no, i forgot about briefing! Monderley will kill me. Seeya! (=

My name is Frraksurred (pronounced like "fractured"). Everybody asks what it is supposed to mean, so I'll just get it out of the way now: it comes from the Bible verse Psalms 51:17 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalms%2051:17;&version=31;). I'm a 40 year old single father of two daughters who has to work way too much. :confused: Nice to meet y'all. I spend most my time at World Wide Ambassadors (http://www.worldwideambassadors.com/index.php), but if you Google my name you'll find me all over.

I've been a gamer since there was such a thing. I still play Deus Ex (http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4001&sid=6e07ca839ac4e87476c614e13e96de99) (link to widescreen hack), which I have the privilege of playing on a 30" monitor (http://www.sharkyforums.com/showthread.php?t=311255):

http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/5010/duesexzz0.th.jpg (http://img185.imageshack.us/my.php?image=duesexzz0.jpg)

I think I have played it more then any game outside of the Half-Life Series. I like it for its choices among other things. I thought Invisible War was a confused step-child that completely missed the mark aimlessly trying to please its father. I am excited with high hopes for DX3.

I know many people didn't like the second part of Deus Ex, because of it's "consolisation". The fact is that they have a point, but they miss the whole idea, which in my point of view is the scenario - and it was great. World Religion packed with conspiracy plots, amazing.

Anyway, I am really happy to be here, I can't wait to find out more about the game and to discuss about it.

A big thanks to everyone at EIDOS and Warren Spector for providing us some of the best game experiences ever :cool:

Well, I'm currently in Vermont, a little state in the northeastern corner of the US. I've been a huge fan of the DX series- and I'm extremely glad to see it being brought back to greatness. :cool:

I've made some DX 3 wallpapers in the time I've been on these forums, if anybody wants to check those out. I've also entered in the fan contest, because I really want that shirt. :whistle:

These days, when I get the time to play games, I usually play Battlefield 2142 or Crysis Wars. Look me up under the same name in either game :p

It's great to be here- DXe and Romeo have done a good job being mods, and keeping things in some resemblance of order. Rene's little appearances are fun and enlightening (except when they're not for fear of being arrested by his boss :whistle: ).

All in all, I'm looking forward to DX 3 and this is a great place to be while I'm waiting. Cheers! :thumbsup:

I first played DX when the entire game came free (along with Thief II) in a copy of Computer Gaming World magazine around the time when Invisible War was being developed.

Hey Dorana!

DX2 really is a lot better after the second and third playthrough's. Or at least, it felt better.

As for story events, the events in DX2 probably won't play much of a role in DX3 seeing as it is a prequel to DX1. But it is always a good idea to refresh your mind by playing the other games before playing the new one.

I have a feeling there will be some hints in DX3 about things that will come that happens in both DX and DX2.

and I love when you get those lines between games.

and yea, i remember DX2 beeing better on the 2'nd run. The first run was honestlt mostly nagging becouse the game wasn't like the first, so I missed out alot of the good features of the game itself.

I am very excited about the prospects of Deus Ex 3, especially the art style. The choice of Adam Jensen as the protagonist's name is fresh, and in my opinion, excellent. I believe many Scandinavians (myself included) would be delighted to see a game character with viking roots. :D
