    I got this on PC, plays better then I expected. The game froze at the same spot during the first mission, the cutscene with the eyepatch guy and that one hostage's wife froze without any sound and I had to Alt-tab out to close the game. I tried seeing if it would do it a third time, but it worked then and I've had no problems since.

    I'm going with a guns blazing tank guy for a first playthrough. I picked the augs that reduce damage and make me immune to EMPs, and now I'll work towards the gun buffs.

    And this is my first time on Steam.. Ohmygod my money is going to fade away..

    So I guess you have to stock up on promax bars or whatever if you want to use cloak, along with having at least 3 bars unlocked.

    How good is this game? So good.

    I played so much today. It's like Deus Ex never left. The game ran super solid the entire time, just some slow down while it loaded areas. (my video card is a HD4850 from like 3 years ago, but the CPU is fairly new). I think I've already become acclimated to the load times, but the people are still a bit squirmy.

    I'm playing through with no kills, except for the first attack on Sarif, cause I didn't know I could take down baddies until later. You can use take downs before augs, right?

    Another question: how to disarm mine?

    Thanks. I thought I tried that, but I got tired of the load times and just figured out it's trigger and blast radius. I don't need bullet to set them off safely anymore.

    Pondering whether to get the xbox or the pc version.. my pc is a pretty crappy core2 duo t5555 laptop with a geforce 8600mgt, so I guess the xbox version would play much better..

    Yeah had to drop off the preorder items in the apartment. Still there after running around a few missions.

    Also the social aug is the best.

    So what did you put your first points in?

    I put one for another battery and two into enhanced stealth...i think the 'cones' of vision will help me be sneaky since so far the tranq gun is pure shit. (I dont think ive hit a single thing with it...the range is so short i never see a crosshair).

    I kind of regretted getting it when in detroit, but after i moved on it became incredibly useful.

    Are the energy regen mechanics still a huge hassle in this?

    Unless you have a ton of abilities that burn through energy maybe, but i dont and im not having much of an issue with it. The items that restore portions or all of your energy seem pretty plentiful if you are one prone to exploring, and they can also be bought in certain amounts. Also you always at least recharge a single bar so you always have some energy available to you.

    There's lots of exploration to be done here, despite the reduced openness in the hubs/levels. I spent some times on the rooftops in Detroit and picked up a few xp bonuses.

    Yeah I hate that it only naturally regens one bar without using an item. Should have let you naturally regen all of them and the items should have been for quick energy in a pinch.

    My game froze up in the first mission. Was reloading right in the beginning section inside the warehouse. Hung in the loading screen.

    Does this sound like something the ATI file fix would correct? Hope so, have to waste many hours on this game.

    I agree with this.

    As it stands, I run around with one energy bar and just pop some recharge in whenever I need to takedowns on more than one opponent.

    A friend suggested they make an aug where it will regen all batteries, but the time before it starts to recharge/how long it takes to recharge gets longer with each successive battery. That way you don't have to carry a box of Clif Bars with you, but you still have use for a few if you need to recharge quickly.

    Hopefully something like that can be modded in easily.

    GameStop intentionally removing Deus Ex OnLive coupons from retail PC copies

    gamestopshenanigans.jpg

    Hey, remember the free Deus Ex: Human Revolution OnLive code that comes with the retail PC version? If you bought your copy at GameStop, chances are you didn't get the code. It turns out that the retailer decided not to participate in the promotion ... by force.

    GameSpy is reporting that GameStop employees received notice yesterday that they were to open new PC copies of Deus Ex and remove the free OnLive token. To repeat: GameStop employees were told to open new copies and remove contents intended to be sold with the game.

    A GameStop representative confirmed to GameSpy that the company is removing the tokens, saying, "Square Enix packed the competitor's coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull and discard these coupons." Indeed, some of our own commenters claiming to be GameStop employees said the same thing in our post revealing the OnLive promotion yesterday.

    Joystiq is currently investigating the issue, including the possible legal implications of tampering with a product and selling it as new.

    http://www.joystiq.com/2011/08/24/gamestop-intentionally-removing-deus-ex-onlive-coupons-from-reta

    How is something like that even legal?

    The first augs I upgraded were hacking. I got up to level 5 almost before I left Sarif for Detroit. I hate not having access.

    Which leads to "liquidating" everything I can get my hands on.

    yeah I find the only-one-energy-cell regen mechanic a bit dumb. I end up just bumming around with my one free recharging cell, doing a stealth takedown then recharging while I hide the body, doing another then hiding the body, etc.

    unless you're wanting to be invisible forever it seems like getting the recharge time upgrades is a way better idea than getting additional capacity. I plan to get cloak and only use it in very short bursts, to move from cover to cover for example.

    I like the the silent movement upgrades only drain energy when they are actually suppressing sound, IE when you are moving, and your energy recharges while they are active if you don't move for long enough.

    I got my copy through Gamestop's digital download service. The game pre-loaded with their Impulse program that I had to download, but when I ran it for the first time, it launched Steam. I put the CD key in Steam and it added it to my library without having to install again.

    Some of the in-game preorder bonuses were available immediately without input from me. Although, I still don't know where the grenade launcher is or how to access the artbook and soundtrack.

    I've been stashing weapons and things I don't want to clog up my inventory but I don't want to just sell either in my office in Sarif's HQ. There's currently a sniper rifle, assault rifle and a freaking rocket launcher leaning on my desk.

    I take office security very seriously.

    my weapon loadout so far is tranq rifle and a handgun, but I never use the handgun because STEALTH TAKEDOWNS YEAAAAAH


    My impression of the stun gun is that the only advantage it has over takedowns is that it doesn't consume energy.

    i didnt run into too much stun gun ammo

    also dont think i fired the tranq gun more than seven or eight times on the first mission

    Can you even non-lethal that boss? like, just PEPS and tranq him or stun him?

  • azith28azith28 Registered User regular
    Overall i find stealth more fun in this game but that might just be because i havent improved weapon skills. I couldnt hit a damn thing with the tranq gun, and just ended up doing a bunch of non-lethal takedowns which i find fun setting up...probably will get less fun later as the difficulty increases.

    BTW...to people who have gotten kinda far. Are the augments available to you from the beginning the only augments you will ever have to choose from or do some get added?
