    I replaced the in game FXAA with the new version that the developer keeps updating. Looks better and is customizable.

    woop woop just picked up my copy today $79 AUD, got the explosive mission pack with it although doesn't seem much. Installing now can't wait to see how it performs, also bit confused with the AA options.. is MLAA the best one?

    Picked it up for $30 AUD + Red Dead Redemption + Read Dead Undead + God of War III <-- games I would prolly never touch again.

    I started off really liking the game, but now i've played it for a few hours it seems quite meh.

    The graphics don't look too great and i get stuttering even when running at 50-100 fps on the highest settings. The switch fro 3rd person to 1st person often leaves me disorientated.

    A lesser issue is the first boss. He seems very difficult to kill. I've spent about an hr trying so far (about 30 attempts) but he is damn hard.
    I've only managed to pick up about 6 of the augmentation points, which i put into new legs, the conversation skill and a stealth enhancer. So, i'll prolly try for another hour until going back and restarting the game and playing in a manner which will allow me to kill him.

    At the moment i only have an upgraded shotgun, sniper rifle and dart rifle with no more room for other weapons :(

    imo the facial expressions could've used newer tech as it makes it feel like I am playing a game made a decade ago with uber graphics.

    I am getting confused with all of the AA options provided in the game. Which AA is the best to use for eye candy?

    yea, i still have no inventory points yet, but having a bigger arsenal would have helped with the boss.

    I managed to kill him, but i think it was a fluke. i EMP'd him, then threw an explosive barrel before 1 more shotgun blast got him.

    I settled on FXAA on High. A little funny considering I'm on ATI and this is the first game to actually have native MLAA support.

    The FXAA to me just seems a little crisper.

    emp grenades & headshots. about 3-4 times. I used the machine pistol. the key is to run AS SOON as he snaps out of it. if you try to fit in a few more shots it can get you killed. try to empty the clip and then reload & run at the same time, so you are ready. hide behind the columns while he shoots, then peak out and chuck the emp.

    Yeah the first boss was fairly easy for me. At first I ran from him and then I noticed the explosive barrels. I emped his ass, tossed a barrel at him, gassed him and then several head shots and he was done for. Did it my first try.

    I like this game a lot. Been playing every chance I have and doing all the side quests as I find them. It's a great title and I enjoy the ability to play as I see fit; my style.

    that's how you're supposed to beat him, he gets stunned for quite a while every time you hit him with one.

    2 barrels and 20 seconds of shooting later fight over. you can just stun him with barrels until he dies.

    That bos also doesn't have such a great AI.

    You can duck into one of the rooms with weapons and ammo and hide behind the crates there. He won't follow you in, but the grenades can get you.

    if you think there is a way you're supposed to do it, you don't understand the point of Deus Ex.

    that being said, i said lol as i was laughing at myself. it was so obvious but i missed it. thanks though.

    First boss was way too easy, I disoriented him 3 times and shot him in the head with the sniper rifle and revolver in between those times. The nades didn't have such a big radius so it was enough for me just to run around the room to avoid them, didn't bother with barrels.

    another way is to just shoot him with the shotgun from close range (whilst using cloak :))

    I completed this yesterday. Loved it :rockout:

    Word of advice : save your game just before you make your final decision. That way you can reload your last save and view all 4 endings ;)

    Flip to page 182 if you want to go into the dark forest.
    Flip to page 94 if you want to go into the sunny meadow.
    (chose page 182, book mark 94)
    Flip to 182, see if I die, yep in 2 pages, flip to page 94 and continue story.
    HookeyStreet and digibucc say thanks.
