  1. Regarding Editions...

    I know it's bog standard to put out a variety of editions at different price points these days, but the regional differences in content seem salient in regards to Deus Ex.

    Specifically, why can...

    We can change the color of our hair. We can change how much fat we have in our bodies. We can replace a heart made of meat with a heart made of plastic.

    In the too distant future, we will replace...

    I think STALKER would be best: you can carry whatever kind of ammo you want, it's just a matter of weight. Why don't more developers just say "hey, the way ammunition works in real life is pretty...

    THAT, my friend, is just false. True, philosophy, and particularly philosophy of mind, has made huge strides thanks to technical innovations. Philosophy of mind obviously has gained the most in...

    Yeah, it amazes there are so many obnoxious CHUDs who spend months on this DX3 forum *****ing and moaning about a game they've never played. This whole sad, pathetic attitude of "Hurrr, all games...

    Games have for over a decade been driven primarily by film rather than actual simulations of real world experience. I agree though, lately it's gone too far. I mean, there's a film grain option in...

    ...for you. That's what creates immersion... for you.

    The thing is, you had a 100% insta-kill in the first Deus Ex with the prod and the sword. Plus priveleging emergent gameplay as being more...

    It's too bad very few games actually have something that could be called sniping. I understand it'd be kind of tough to have intense 32 person battles given the +450 meter distance you need to make...

    In film, this "feel" concept is called mise en scene. It's not entirely possible to define; words like "tone" and "feel" seem inadequate. But no one would ever have any problem distinguishing the...

    Well, removing takedowns entirely, or removing double takedowns, isn't terribly interesting. And it's absurd to sneak up behind someone and not get a guaranteed kill. Let's remember that there was...

    I like where this thread is going. Good, constructive responses guys.

    The Arkham Asylum takedowns were sweet, but obviously Deus Ex is a very different animal. I think by default all takedowns...

    What Would You Do About Takedowns?

    So here's an open question: what would you have done if you were in charge of managing takedowns for DX:HR?

    There's a lot of *****ing that goes on in these forums about the insta-kill cutscene...

    Yeah, I'm not concerned. The conversations in the original were a huge part of the game and it never bothered me that some weren't even branched. As long as the cutscenes are tasteful and engaging,...

    That just got me thinking about how sad the HR ending is going to be. No matter how it ends, you still know that the world is going to burn. I bet the end of the game has Adam's actions...

    "You run up to someone and hit a button to kill them."

    Like in the original Deus Ex. Plus, if you sneak up behind someone, it's kind of hard to **** it up- especially if you're already an elite...

    Contrary to some people here, I don't equate immersion to "you are there" or total commitment to first person ala Half-Life or Mirror's Edge. In my experience, immersion is more about losing...
