Deus Ex: Human Revolution Blowout Coming


This is a public service announcement. At 4pm GMT (11am EST, 10am CST, 8am PST or “About an hour from now”) we’ll be posting a Deus Ex: Human Revolution info avalanche, or “infavalanche”. You’ll find your protective Infavalanche Goggles under your seat. If there are none there, don’t sweat it. Four out of five of our test subjects survived.


  1. HermitUK says:

    All I really need is a confirmed release date. They had me at Deus Ex.

    • Njordsk says:

      Same, just want the damn date and roll on.

      And a little bit less 3rd person mechanics while we’re at it, but I suspect RPS can’t do anything about that.

    • HermitUK says:

      I fully expect a mod to fix that within six months of the game’s release.

    • rei says:

      Within the week.

    • coldvvvave says:


      Your turn.

    • WMain00 says:


    • Harlander says:

      You didn’t spell ‘desperate’ properly.

      What a shame.

    • WMain00 says:

      I wanted an S! It gave me lemon lime.

    • Om says:

      Are you all forgetting Invisible War?

    • Harlander says:

      No, I haven’t

      I enjoyed Invisible War.

      It wasn’t as good as the original, but a lot of decent things aren’t as good as Deus Ex. I’d have liked it to have been better. Maybe this game will be.

      Optimism deployed.

    • Lacero says:

      I thought the story of IW was better than DE. It was let down by levels being too small and that weird universal ammo idea.

    • ross_angus says:

      But has anyone played Project: Snowblind? It made Invisible War look, well, like Deus Ex.

    • Matt says:

      I liked Project Snowblind up until the stealth level. Of course, I didn’t expect it to be god’s gift to gaming like Deus Ex, so that may have helped.

    • ross_angus says:

      Good point: I only bought it for the Deus Ex connection. Perhaps if I’d come at it from the same direction as “Pariah” (released the same year, I think), it would have seemed better.

  2. Lambchops says:

    A bomb!

    No, Google reader, it’s just game based information.

    What a shame!

    it is rather, here have this hot beverage to console yourself.

    I spill my drink!

    Right that’s enough Deus Ex references from you Mr Reader.

  3. 7rigger says:

    I can’t find my infavalanche goggles!

    Oh well. It is a pretty sweet way to die :P

  4. .backslash says:

    I don’t need Infavalanche Goggles. My eyes are augmented.

  5. Flint says:

    An info BOMB.

  6. stahlwerk says:

    A lethal infavalanche is always the loudest infavalanche.

  7. ALJA says:


  8. CMaster says:

    It’s ok, my vision is augmented.

  9. faelnor says:

    I hope the infavalanche will be so THIRD PERSON and will look so FUCKING COOL that Jonathan Jacques-BelletĂȘte will want to snowboard on it.

  10. JohnnyMaverik says:

    I can feel my balls tightening O.o

  11. Jonas says:

    You dirty great teases.

  12. trooperdx3117 says:

    Oh god I have no infolanche goggles!
    To the infolanche bunker!!!

  13. Pijama says:


  14. Joseph-Sulphur says:


  15. Qjuad says:

    I hope you post about the commander ’cause he’s my pal.

  16. Vadermath says:

    Holy shit, this must be quite the infavalanche if it requires an announcement beforehand! I am giddy with excitement!

    Oh wait, never mind, just needed to pee. Still, can’t wait!

  17. Ian says:

    They spill their info!

  18. Mike says:

    Can you just post it five minutes early as an act of defiance? These internet deadlines are ridiculous.

  19. Wooster says:

    That infavalanche better include some dates in there.

  20. jon_hill987 says:

    My eyes! The googles do nothing!

    Oh wait, were we supposed to be doing Deus Ex references?

  21. laddyman says:

    I feel that it is scientifically impossible for me to give a rat’s nether regions about this game, though that may have something to do with never playing the first Deus Ex, which PC Gamer declares (to paraphrase liberally) “A STONKING MASTERPIECE.”
    I will turn in my membership card at the door.

    • JohnnyMaverik says:

      Alternately you could just play the first game and then join us in our frenzied anticipation…

    • westyfield says:

      I played it, it sucked.

      (I kid, I kid! Please don’t kill me!)

    • FriendlyFire says:

      It’s like a crossover between Blade Runner and Neuromancer with Matrix-style combat. How can you *NOT* find that awesome?

    • daphne says:

      That’s not possible… You need to have played Deus Ex to talk about games in the first place.

  22. frenz0rz says:


  23. Theory says:

    I will be stoically ignoring all information except the release date and whether 3rd person can be modded out. Join me!

    • Basilicus says:

      Impossible. “Once the bug bites, you’ve already lost the patient.”

  24. daphne says:

    …better than kings. Gods!

  25. Hunam says:

    Picked up PC Gamer mag the other day to read a nice 6 page preview, then EG’s fantastic interview yesterday really topped it all off for me. Can’t wait to see what you guys are bringing. I really can’t get enough of this game.

  26. LionsPhil says:

    Could…could you not have collated this into one big post with twenty zillion comments (most of which are just parroting The Recut)?

    Come on RPS, you’re one of the last bastions of games reporting that isn’t just a hype echo chamber.
