    Finished it as well yesterday. Had a blast. I suggest finishing through the ending credits (after finishing the game, not in the menu) for a surprise ;).

    Basically waltz through the whole thing in normal difficulty with a silenced armor piercing 10mm headshots, explosive round revolver for crowd control and an RPG for the bosses. Pump up the armor upgrade, typhoon system and your all set. Still had plenty of spare ammo in the bag after the end boss :p

    He pretty much kills himself by throwing grenades.. I've done the game for "foxiest of the hounds" on the hardest setting. Just sit on the top of the boxes on the inside corner in the room farthest from where you start. He get's real close and starts chucking grenades. He'll wander off to the other side, so jump out and shoot as much as you can before jumping back on the box again and have him slowly killing himself with grenades again.
    I think i fired maybe 30 rounds on him with the combat rifle..

    I wanted to do stealth at first but then just realized it wasn't me :laugh:. I am approaching it using mobility and assault tactics. So naturally I have all the inventory slots unlocked and level 5 hack.

    silenced combat rifle, revolver + both have laser sights and damage/ammo clip ups
    sniper rifle and tranq + tracking and damage ups
    stun gun

    Got the jump&stun upgrades and dermal armor

    So I pretty much do surprise attacks and try to ambush them or hit and run if there are high enough places to stun a group or I also have the option to go to an unreachable/undetectable height and snipe. Bitch tactics woop woop :)

    You can turn the object highlight and reticle in the gameplay option. It doesnt affect 'Legend' achievement even if you turned it on.

    I disable these stupid helpers the very moment i install the game. Usualyl when i go through the first time settings. I mean what's the point of these helpers if you just have to follow the glowing shiny things. It's degenerating for the brain. I prefer listening to the clues and plain and simply exploring the world. It's harder indeed but also much more rewarding because you did it on your own and not because the game pointed it in your face. I did the same with all BioShock games and also in Mirror's Edge. Chasing red marked objects to climb over is easy. But picking the right surface in the heat of the battle without helper objects is so much better. And i don't remember dying a lot. Usually i was chasing the proper ledge but my timing was not right so i fell off. It's just better to play without them if you ask me. But then again i play games on PC, not on butter fingered consoles...

    All of the helpers including your crosshair reticles are automatically disabled in deus ex mode. And I agree with you, it is like playing a game like zelda with all the secrets highlighted in green.

    It's always what I did with the D&D books. I would usually read out my death though, then continue my story :p

    I get a terrible stutter when turning even though it runs at a decent frame rate. I've tried different combinations of settings but nothing fixes it. One other downside is it feels very much like a console port.

    It's a decent game, even with the stutter, and you stop noticing after a while.

    Stutters can come from overclocking too

    I get a stutter when running, but only when in the streets. It's every second or so.

    I get a stutter, but I'm pretty sure it's just Windows 7...

    Yeah it's a bit annoying. It feels like i'm plaing with a crappy PC. Though while not running in the same locations, it feels like 100fps when just looking around...

    Missing Link DLC to be announced September 8th

    The Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During lead character Adam Jensen's quest for the truth in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all.

    "We are very excited for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fans to be able to complete Adam's journey in the game with The Missing Link DLC," said David Anfossi, producer of Deus Ex: Human Revolution at Eidos-Montreal. "Gamers will be able to experience a vulnerable side of Adam like never before, which gives the overall game a whole new dimension. The Missing Link propels players into compelling gameplay, beginning with Adam being stripped of his use of augmentations, new, visually stunning environments and the continuation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution's conspiracy rich story."

    After being tortured by Belltower agents and having his augmentations disabled, Adam Jensen must rely solely on his basic capabilities to escape from a freighter, destined for an unknown location. While fighting for his survival on the ship, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy that he never would have suspected. As Adam, gamers will befriend new, mysterious allies and fight ruthless enemies to discover what was happening in the shadows during the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution!

    Have stutter issue here as well. Mostly when running in the streets for some odd reason.

    I also find the convoluted paths annoying.

    For instance I'd like to do this side quest but can't since the only way (Obvious at least) to get there is covered with electric water and I can't get across...

    And other times I find my self having to go through the police station just to get to the other side... It was worse before the loading fix patch but still kind of annoys me.

    Just my 2 cents, game is still pretty good, but doesn't really wow me.
