Deus Ex: The Fall Trips Onto Steam Today

By Craig Pearson on March 18th, 2014.

Who asked for this?

News of the now: there is a newish Deus Ex game on Steam. Deus Ex: The Fall is a conversion of the mobile game from a few years back, one that did an okay job of squeezing down to be prodded and poked at by commuters. I warn you, despite being a slice of Human Revolution-esque Deus Ex, the launch trailer below makes it look pretty bad. Better augment your eyes before watching.

Under The Whiskey Way: Space Noir

By Nathan Grayson on March 11th, 2014.

'The city was lit up bright like a cooked goose wrapped in Christmas lights. Then I realized that geese went extinct 140 years ago and got sad'

If you think about it, space is kind of the perfect setting for a noir-influenced piece of media. I mean, it’s perpetually nighttime out there, and even in series like Battlestar Galactica where scarcity of resources was a prime concern, they always managed to have bottomless wells of whiskey handy. Give me some dingy, grease-stained sci-fi architecture and a gravel-voiced hero with a world space-weary slump in his shoulders, and you’ve got a recipe for, um… a videogame. In this case, that game is the creatively named Space Noir. Well, mostly. Trailer below.

Tablets Goeth Before, But: Deus Ex: The Fall Coming To PC

By Graham Smith on February 25th, 2014.

Adam Yankee in... Deus 4x.

Before Eidos Montreal tore the internet asunder with their Thief reboot, they made Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It was well liked upon release, but I still feel like it doesn’t get enough attention. It did, however, get a recent, somewhat crappy tablet spin-off called The Fall.

That spin-off is now coming to PC on March 25th. If it was somewhat crappy, why does that matter? When The Fall is all there is of Deus Ex, it matters.

Square: ‘Nothing To Share’ About Deus Ex: The Fall PC

By Nathan Grayson on June 5th, 2013.

We did ask for this. Too bad Square Enix doesn't feel like letting us have it right now.

Activate the windshield wiper augment on your cybernetic eye implants, everyone. It’s time to smear away some tears. As was written in the stars (fun fact: RPS has been held aloft by celestial bodies since the dawn of time, aka 1873), Square Enix fully revealed Deus Ex: The Fall today. And now, the sadness: it is siiiiiiiiighhh an FPS siiiiiiiiiighhh exclusively for siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh mobile and tabletsiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. But hey, these things have a way of migrating over to PC occasionally, so I got in touch with Square Enix about the possibility. Unfortunately, they did not spare my brittle, nanomachine-free flesh feelings.

Five Seconds Of Promotion For Deus Ex: The Fall

By Alec Meer on June 4th, 2013.

Oh my God JC, another recycled screenshot
UPDATE: STAND DOWN. It’s an eye-tablet game. Sighs!

Oh, video game marketing, you are the worst of all the marketings. Five seconds! What a shame. Most of said five second teaser trailer is a logo. The rest of which is a voice – is that Bob Page or do my ears deceive me? – saying “are we ready to begin?” Oh, I’ve spoiled it now. Yes, much internal RPS grumpiness about the paucity of this teaser trailer for what appears to be a new Deus Ex game, subtitled The Fall. Some claimed we shouldn’t post it all. Others claimed we should fill the internets with rabid speculation. Then there was me, just trying to fill a bit of space before posting the video.
