    So what happens if you chose the self distruct in the original? :p
    (I would've put a spoiler tag if it was any. Also this isn't exactly a spoiler per say, cause you can just save the game just before the end to see all the endings)

    This game is €49.95 on Steam, and ~€27 in stores. Good grief.

    "in stores" is a very vague term, and looking at the only two options in my area (wal-mart and gamestop) it's also false.

    good grief is right.

    In Sweden I'm looking at six BIG online stores where it's below €30 right now. So yeah, we rock. :rockout:

    If I only had the money, and the GPU, for it. :(

    I just finished it and I have to say, they did an excellent job. The game screams Deus Ex and I was a skeptic that they'd be able to pull it off. I found the game rather easy though and I played the entire thing in "Give Me Deus Ex" difficulty.


    Yeah, Deus Ex is never about the character. It's about the conspiracies and how the antagonist takes them on directly. You never play as the same guy (or girl in Invisible War) from game to game.

    so did i, still , it does leave room for replay. i went down the middle, only killing some people. so i've got one play through killing no one, and probably a playthrough killing everyone ;)

    Sill waiting on my Bulldozer to save me, and get me into this, but I'm like Digi, and prefer to just respond to the scenario at hand. I sneak around when I can, kill when I need to, and sometimes just do one or the other for the challenge ;)

    yeah i don't like telling myself "this is how i will play" very much ahead of time. the point is to have fun, and setting arbitrary rules for myself doesn't increase that imo. the first play i just simply play, enjoy it, however that happens.

    replay is a different story though. that's like a skill test.

    Try to finish the game in highest difficulty under 10 hours without killing anyone.

    The game is actually better than expected. True successor of original Deus Ex. Excellent job.

    Lol!
    I was thinking before opening tech, the guys already made a deus ex thread already,
    they even are writing for it right now :p
    This game is really good.
    At least is a game of its own, much better than other first person shooter we are seeing these days.
    I don't like these kind of games, but this one made it through.
    It deserves to be the king.
    I never played the other series before so i can't make any differences.

    There's only two groups of people I killed:
    1) All the guys in the Pods that killed all the civilians (call it retribution ;)).
    2) All the guys that stormed Malik's aircraft in order to keep her alive.

    I don't know if it is even possible to save Malik on "Give Me Deus Ex" without killing. You really don't have much time before it starts on fire.

    I'd never do "under 10 hours" because I always do all the side quests and hack everything, even if I have the key/password to get in, to get XP points.

    it's possible, it just takes a lot of retries and running. using the tranq rifle and emp/explosive revolver on the mechs.

    Yeah, it's probably possible. I used the silenced sniper rifle and put three bullets in the heads of the heavy guys and two in the heads of the rest (that's how many shots it takes to kill with that gun--it's very weak and I suspect it's a bug because the damage values on it aren't low). The tranquilizer gun should be able to take them all out of action with only one hit in the head each but it's more difficult to aim and might be out of range.

    not probably, is. ;) i did not do it, but there is a video of it online i watched 2 weeks ago.

    i personally used my silenced 10mm & exploding revolver. after 3 tries to learn timing it was easy. on deus ex difficulty of course.

    All the videos I saw of it were definitely not on the hardest difficulty. Some were obviously on easy and some were on normal.

    Yeah, I see that it's pretty easy so long as you have enough tranquilizer darts and an EMP grenade. I didn't have an EMP grenade. There is an EMP grenade on the map (in the drain next to the electrified pool) but there's not enough time/health to get it before they blow up the helicopter.

    yeah i was caught pretty unprepared. as i sad, i blew em up with the explosive revolver. it seemed impossible at first. but if you pick the heavies off quick it's not so bad.

    I'm really loving the Steam version of this game. The devs keep pumping out updates/bugfixes to it, complete with patch notes. Definitely looking forward to the DLC, just hoping they price it right.

    Cool. I thought it was not possible to save her. I guess i'll do that the next time i'll play it.
