See, I've read that during the development of Deus Ex "JC" was thought up as a possible abbreviation of Jesus Christ.

Now what's in store for "AJ", ignoring the fact that we know his name already.

I'll start with "Average Joe", now you go crazy.

AJ = Augmentation Janitor
(Double) Agent Joe (90)


Adding another twist, his anagram makes JAMES (n) DEAN. :D

Aye Jay is a former clown/circus performer who taught pen and teller how to do a trick involved with watches and predicting the future.

Adam is obviously biblical, and Jenson is because he's American, damn it, and all things good including the state of innocence and the garden of Eden are American, damn it, because America is the shining beacon of good in the world and it's their job to spread happy-go-lucky democracy to even the most backwards oil rich nations of the world, damn it, so the name makes perfect sense to me, oh screw it all.

I still think is means Adam Jensen, we already have a full name for him. JC is the only person in Deus Ex that uses two letters for his name, ask Bob Page, maybe he'll know what JC means (lol).

As for Adam Jensen being an average joe? Yeah right. He doesn't look like an average joe, an average joe also doesn't work as a security guard in a top-secret scientific department or get captured with his own security plans.

I like the AJ deal. If NPCs refer to him as AJ, I'd be ok with that. I like the biblical allusions implied with Adam, but the last name Jensen seems kind of generic to me and doesn't have a ring to it, so I'd LIKE to assume AJ's name is "Adam" and only "Adam" with the surname tacked on later in life to disguise his true nature- but thats pretty obvious so I hope its wrong.

All that crap aside, I like the nickname "AJ." It's cyberpunk enough and heralds back to the days of "JC"

I think theres probably a good reason he's named AJ, but for now I'm content to stay ignorant of it until further info is provided, or I get my hands on a game.

As with most things I do, in the 4 weeks leading up to release I blackout myself from any and all media pertaining to a game/movie so as not to ruin the experience.

You're all completely wrong. He's clearly named after AJ Hackett, and the entire game will revolve around bungee jumping.:p

Nice! :)

Actually it's a name given to him form the soft drink company that named him after their Soda. Anal Juice... it's actually French but the name loses it meaning in translation... Sadly the company went under. :rasp:

This may be going a little too far, but I think Adam Jensen is just a name.

Edit: I apologize for any confusion caused by the above statement.

I, too, think it's only "Adam Jensen".

This thread is just meant for fun.. We have to keep ourselves entertained for quite a while. :)

Maybe we'll see a villain who goes by "AD" or who has the first name of Arthur.

Here are some other things that are definite possibilities:
-The U.S. never landed on the moon in the 60's
-Fluoride is a form of mind control
-I'm not wearing any pants

Looks like a hint at the conspiracies in the game! :rasp:

Also, THE KING IS NAKED! :eek:
