Hollywood’s Finest Vents: Deus Ex To Become A Movie

After this, of course, the man then gets back up and says, 'OK then, do I get the role?'

Videogame movies! No one really asked for them, but we’re getting them anyway. I now imagine Ezio and Adam Jensen leaping hand-in-hand off the rooftop that is their medium of choice, but with Jensen engaging the Icarus Landing System while Ezio dies horribly because hay doesn’t work that way. At any rate, Deus Ex‘s film rights have officially fallen into the hands of CBS Films, and Human Revolution – not the original or Invisible War – will be its foundation.

Clutching At Shadows: Thief 4

If you starve a man he will gladly chew a button in order to create saliva, which he will then swallow in an attempt to fool his body into thinking it is being fed. This brief cry in the dark is my attempt to nourish myself with a lump of plastic or wood, it is the splinter in my tongue and the grumbling in my belly. This is what happens when they don’t tell me anything about Thief 4. I feast hungrily on scraps.

The Wait Is Over: Anachronox Is On GoG.com

It looks soooooo Ion Stormy
My wait, actually. The best bit of the PC Gamer Top 100 meetings was listening to Gamer’s secret weapon Tony Ellis (if you’ve ever laughed at a caption or dark dark bit of humour, it was probably from Tony’s sick mind), talking about Anachronox: we’d all stop flushing heads down the toilet and pause mid-Chinese burn as he told us about the insanity of Ion Storm’s other game: all I remember now is that you could have a planet as a companion. A planet! I’ve been waiting for it to appear on GoG, and this morning it did. In addition to the planetary buddy, it’s a combination of Japanese style RPG and western sensibilities, but thanks to a rushed production (lots of content was removed then Ion Storm closed a month after release), it’s also rather buggy.

For This, Never: Deus Ex HR DLC Packs

Explosions or tactics, explosions or tactics...hmmm
Deus Ex: HR came saddled with a selection of preorder incentives, a phrase that tastes like a little bit of sick in my mouth. The upshot is that if you didn’t buy the game from a grid coordinate during the correct lunar sequence, you may be missing little bits of content. No longer. Now, everything can be yours, provided you’re willing to reach into your digital wallet once more. There are two packs available, neither of which I have any experience with so don’t expect an informed opinion. Personally, I haven’t found the game to be lacking any of the things that are listed below. Have you?

DXHR No Longer Region Locked In Europe


Square Enix appear to have reversed their decision on region-locking the retail copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution in Europe and the UK, which we’d noted yesterday. An Eidos forum post by Square Enix “mastering manager” Jason Walker says: “We’re aware of some discussion regarding the planned region-locking of boxed PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and after careful review we have decided not to implement this in the UK/Europe. Please note, this plan only related to PC boxed games, and not digital or console editions.”

Just Cause 2 Ignoro Gallery, Just ‘Cause

I bet you wish you had your own gaming website too.

I’ve been replaying Just Cause 2 in my spare time of late. I remember my absolutely loving it, and then finding the ludicrous fun was spoiled by the difficulty ramping up far too far, and the game getting in the way of itself. So thinking it would be fun to muck around with it some more, this time I set things to Casual and began blowing everything up. I also figure that by this point there’s bound to be a trainer out there that can prevent the heat levels from going over 3. But I’m not here to write you an article yet. Not yet. For now I just want to share some of the snaps I’ve taken on my island holiday. Because sometimes it’s important to just look at pretty pictures of a two year old game in which the character is ignoring things going on in the background.

Whisper: Deus Ex HR Gets Conspiratorial

Just downloading the conspiracy database now.

For a trailer claiming to be about conspiracy, there’s an awful lot of punching in the latest of over seven hundred million trailers for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I think if you strung all the trailers together it would last longer than playing the game. But it matters none, as this is once again very intriguing. Oh, if this game isn’t good I’m going to Montreal and I’m going to pinch the arms of every single person at Eidos. EVERY SINGLE ONE. You’ve been warned, Eidos Montreal.
