Become A Weapon: Deus Ex – Mankind Divided

I've played Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] and I liked what I saw. A brief visit to just two areas suggested a more confident and open approach to first-person stealth-action. My preview focused on the level design because that's where most of the improvements seemed to be but Eidos Montreal are also determined to improve player character Adam Jensen. That's already evident in the…

Predicting Tomorrow: The Art, Architecture And Fashion Of Deux Ex Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is already looking like a worthy follow-up to Human Revolution as well as an inventive prequel to Ion Storm's original cyberpunk classic. When we visited the studio to play the game earlier this month, we also spent time talking to two of the brains behind the game about the inspirations and processes that go into this bleak vision of…

We Can Rebuild It: Deus Ex Revision Out Now

Deus Ex: Revision [official site] is a project that overhauls "the environments and soundtrack" of Ion Storm's classic, and it's out now on Steam. The release has the backing of Deus Ex's current publishers and developers (Square Enix and Eidos Montreal), and is designed to work exclusively with the Steam release of the original.

Deus Ex Is 15, So Here’s Cartoon Denton & Jensen

The Deus Ex series, with its highest of highs and most middling of lows, is 15 years old. Old men, running the world. But not complicated pre-order schemes. They can't run those, it appears. The anniversary is being used to promote upcoming fourth game Mankind Divided, due out in February (thus I will be a man divided between it and XCOM 2), and so we…

The Sweet Confusion Of Going Back To A Game Later On

Here’s a thing I love: going back to an involved game after weeks, months or even years away, after life got in the way or you hit a brick wall, and abruptly abandoned that world. Starting a brand new game from scratch can never offer the same delightful confusion, even though you begin it from a place of even greater ignorance. Without fail, I go…

RPS Discusses: Which Is The Best Level In PC Gaming?

Level 28! No, the other kind of level. The type that you run around in, shooting people or jumping on their heads and that sort of thing. Adam, Alec, Alice and Graham gather to discuss their favourite levels and/or maps from across the vast length of PC gaming, including selections from Deus Ex, Call of Duty and Quake III. Someone even makes a case for…

The 50 Best RPG On PC

An entirely objective ranking of the 50 best PC RPGs ever released. Covering the entire history of computer role-playing games is a daunting task and attempting to place the best games in such a broad genre in any kind of order is even more daunting. Thankfully, we are equal to all tasks and below, you will find the best fifty PC RPGs of all time.

Flying Swords And Boss Chat-Off: 25 Mins Of Deus Ex 4

I know it's not really called Deus Ex 4 in any shape or form, but 'Deus Ex: Mankind Divided' [official site] is long and headlines boxes are short. You get the point though: here's the best part of half an hour of Adam Jensen asking for it in Square's upcoming stealth-or-death sequel. On show: new augmentations, purportedly improved combat, 'social boss fight system', a gun…

Your Discounts Are Augmented: Deus Ex Collection For £4

You didn't ask for this. You didn't ask for this because if you know the I Didn't Ask For This meme then surely you already own Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and thus have no interest in it being discounted to £3.99 in a pack also including Deus Ex 1 and Invisible Whatever. What a shame. But if you don't already own Human Revolution, then oh…

Cramming: Deus Ex ‘Re-imagining’ Mod Coming Soon-ish

Texture packs, replacement models, and post-processing mods can do a lot to pretty a game up, but they can't conceal that jagged old level geometry. It's an awful lot more work to re-do and update levels but by gum, the folks at Deus Ex: Revision are putting in the time. The Caustic Creative team have been tarting up and reworking Deus Ex's levels with more…

Buying Old Games: Where Your Money Goes

Edit: cos there are various theories flying around below about my perceived intent in posting this, I shall clarify my own feelings. I would really like to see contracts between publishers and developers more commonly include an arrangement whereby key (and ideally, but rather less plausibly, all) creatives on game projects continue to see some post-release royalties, as is the case in some other entertainment…

Deus Ex: The Other Prequel

Update: new video! Adam Jensen's story (which he never asked for) may be the canon prequel to the cyberpunk conspiracy theorising of the original Deus Ex, but the future-world's a big place - there's plenty of room to tell new tales from the time before JC Denton trotted across the globe. 2027 is a massively ambitious, Russian-made mega-mod for Deus Ex 1, the English version…

JC Jensen: DIY DX3 In DX1

You there! Remember the parody video in which the likes of DLC references, object highlighting and iron sights from Human Revolution were added to the original Deus Ex, and how even-tempered everyone was about it? Well, now you can recreate that past-meets-present, JC/AJ mash-up yourself, as creator Ceski has released the mod he made to achieve the video. Also includes instant wristblade takedowns (press use…

Human Devolution: DX3 in DX1

The more modern values of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, transplanted into the resolutely year 2000 Deus Ex 1. Admittedly, this video occasionally strays into tiresome 'THE PAST WAS NECESSARILY BETTER AND EVERYTHING IS RUBBISH NOWADAYS' whingeotron territory, but it's nanotongue-in-cheek enough to elicit a good few guffaws, I think. What if... JC Denton had elbow swords? And augmented vision? And could only rescue Tracer Tong…

Deus Ex: Texture Revolution

With a couple of weeks still on the clock for the release of Deus Ex 3 (it's still amazing to me that's really happening), however will we occupy ourselves? Well, we Britishers could start with considering how to help bridge the terrible gulf between rich and poor. Then we could replay the original Deus Ex, but adorned with new, high resolution textures. The New Vision…

Revolution! Deus Ex 3 Is Finished

Humans! The promised day has arrived. Some said it wasn't possible. Some said rude, badly-spelled things in capital letters. Others were simply impatient. No matter: it has happened. Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the third game in the series that has an awful lot to do with why an awful lot of us remain faithful, unswervingly loyal PC gamers to do this day, has gone gold.…

Deus Excess: 30 Mins Of Human Revolution

We're in a for heck of a show today, ladies and gentlemen. It's done eight minutes! It's done twelve minutes! But can it go thirty whole minutes of in-game footage without stopping? We haven't seen a promotional campaign like this before, ladies and gentlemen - Deus Ex: Human Revolution is trying to go all out, all the way to the top, to show you so…

What About Bob? Deus Ex 3 Looks Backwards

There's a new trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution out - hardly a rare occurrence in and of itself, but this one is especially notable in that seems to have crammed in a few quiet nods to DX1. Until now, DXHR has stood relatively apart from its great forefather, but now all of sudden we hear mention of FEMA and... wait, who's that sinister-looking chap…

Deus Ex 3 Wants You To Want Things

Once there were demos (something I plan to write about soon). Now there's just promotion, and promotion of promotion. The below video is an attempt to make you preorder the super limited megascloosive ultrobucks version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and contains lingering, porny close-ups of the various paper'n'plastic'digital goodies therein, to the accompaniment of what sounds like the Battlestar Galactic soundtrack. Do you want…

Mod News: Excuses, Excuses

Where were you all last week? I turned up and no one was here, honest! What's that? No, I'm not crossing my fingers behind my back, and you definitely didn't see him heading off on holiday. What nonsense. Anyway, to make up for it, here's an extra-long edition of Mod News to cover the past two weeks. This time: Crash Bandicoot, a Warcraft III art…
