The following people are not allowed to post in this thread, because they insisted on talking about a pirated preview build of the game. Needless to say, talking about this build is verboten. If any of these people post in the thread (or the next iteration of it should it get to 100 pages before launch) please report it to the moderators. If you don't, I'll simply take the thread away again.

    How about that Deus Ex, huh

    I wonder if anyone will ever remaster that game, given the industry's current fad of HD remakes

    Dunno.

    Of course, they might insist on redoing the voice acting. Which would be a shame.

    I was sort of going to say, after that OP, this is going to be one slow thread.

    That said, what little I know about the game has me very excited for it. I watched one of the first demo'd playthroughs and have heard a bit about what they've done since with fan feedback but other than that have kept info rather sparse.

    That said though, I'm picking up the first game and finally gonna play it in celebration of some nonsense happening regarding my job. That or just for the fuck of it, because I'm probably missing out. The second game is the one people hate right?

    I dunno if I'd say that. There are bigger games that have not seen an "hd" remake, and if the new game does well, I could see them trying to build off the prequel set up rather than try and mess with the original story.

    One thing to keep in mind about bad impressions the original game has a following sort of like Fall out has a following. Any changes are huge sacrilege that makes it the worst game ever.

    There is some fan stuff for it that's in the linked OP that makes it run a little better, but it's really just not a well executed product. Most of the complaints come from plot and game mechanics and design. Fan patches aren't going to do much for those types of problems.

    Not as far as I know.

    Here's the problem. Massive load times between areas, and maps the size of a small high school gym.

    Also, looking forward to the new one.

    Every single word I've seen about it on PC Gamer and RPS sounds wonderful.

    Except the bit about the boss fight Quinns mentioned. Eesh.

    If there were fan patches to fix that sort of thing, I wouldn't want it.

    I'm one of those people that want the intended experience of a game to be, well, experienced. I don't turn down the music, mod a game, any of that shit until I've had a healthy dose of it (a dozen hours or so). That or until I beat a game. Then I'll go fucking nuts.

    So that said, I may have to experience the awfulness.

    Awfulness would be easier to deal with. There's just enough good to make the clunkiness and problems agonizing.

    Also, you know how Deus Ex, killing anyone felt like, well, killing someone. Nasty even if it's the right thing.

    @JIntor - since I know you've got a legitimate preview copy, can I ask you what the stealth and cover system felt like? Is it sort of a toggle, like "you're in cover, enemies opposite you now can not see you" or is it more organic, like "when in cover they have less chance to see you, but if they're directly on the other side of a thin bench that you're taking cover behind, they can see you"

    I heard some preview talk a few months ago and got excited about this. Reports for E3 have tempered that a bit.

    I don't think there was much of anything new from E3. Some new screens and interviews that don't really say anything new. Here's the (dark) E3 trailer that actually has new footage instead of yet another new variation of the same trailer footage we've been seeing all along.

    I found all that stuff, I meant the negative opinions people apparently had.

    I just kinda skipped over anything DX3 related during actual E3 since I bought it after the RPS preview.

    I have no idea how to search Giant Bomb's site without ending up at their bad wiki. What did they say about it?

    I don't generally feel the same way about games as they do, though. It always feels like they play games just because they get paid to, not because they actually have any interest in them.

    This needs to come out faster. I hope the ending is something really spectacular though. Coming off as a Deus Ex Veteran we (if you played the first game) know ultimately the major events that occur leading to Deus Ex. However, what these major events are and how/why they happened are going to be really :D.

    As for HR, the only thing I've heard concerning clunkiness is from the RPS guys and how the mouse aiming on the PC version once again fails to feel quite right, but that it isn't a dealbreaker.

    I remember hearing some complaints about the cover perspective shift as well (I think it was also on RPS, but I could be remembering it wrong). Frankly, it's a Deus Ex game. Clunkiness is part of its charm. Still could not be more excited for it, despite some of GB's comments.
