I hope the main story is improved. Finished up Human Revolution recently and while I highly enjoyed the stealth and side quest stories; the main story was really meh. Could be really great if they can improve on that.
Definitely expect it to review really well but share the same flaws as its predecessor (moments of limited choice, schlocky hamfisted writing, obvious routes in level design rather than organic and convincing locations).
Don't get me wrong though I played like 100 hours of Human Revolution before I got tired of it so I'm still in for this either way.
I first discovered deus ex: hr by it being free on ps+ for ps3. I got hooked and ended up platinum-ing it. I already pre-ordered MD and will probably buy the season pass once more details about it arise. That makes me wonder how beneficial to developers it can be to put games for free on ps+ once they stop making significant money on it. It can get people hooked and willing to pay full price for the sequel.
Wonder if they'll go down the more insane route from the original with things like aliens. I hope the conspiracy stories unfold through more than just emails this time (and that hacking XP rewards have been adjusted).
Your early reviews should be finalized within the week I've already discussed the matter with the publisher. I take it they were agreeable? They didn't really have a choice. They made GOTY? Oh Yes most certainly.
Good, good. I've had high hopes since the sequel was announced. Human Revolution was really amazing and surpassed my expectations. Aside from the typical announcement and E3 trailers I've managed to stay in the dark so far.
I'm debating whether or not to pre-order this game. Currently, I'm in the middle of a playthrough of Human Revolution and just ran into a part that really hurt my enjoyment of the game to the point I almost wanted to quit on the game. But recently found out that its just part of the director's cut because the DLC was placed in there. Might wait a little bit on this one.
Any gameplay videos of the game being played well? Watched the Giantbomb preview when it went up and the poor dude playing didn't do too well. Probably because he wasn't used to talking and playing at the same time, like he said himself.
Gif for if that day 1 patch comment means what I think it does If not, I'd imagine that the patch will be done by the time reviewers get their hands on it. Also, hell yeah one of the best games of last gen! My number one, actually.
