Why are we having this conversation?
Why the fuck not? Game doesn't come out for 18 months. We've covered "A lot of shit blows up. probably still better to be stealthy, but that makes for shitty trailers" and "Hey, it's Adam Jensen. He's wearing sunglasses at night. Must be an Aug thing" and "I wish Deus Ex let you customize your characters a little" and "Ending of Human Revolution? Not so great".

We're pretty much out of conversation until more information surfaces.

Excuse my necro but this is the thread I found with the search function. Is there a more recent thread? The game comes out on 3 days.

Yeah, it's a refreshing change of pace to lift up the review embargo a few days before release. I actually spent $5 on the mobile game also since Hitman Go and Lara Croft Go were both fairly well regarded. I don't usually drop cash on mobile games, but I like it so far.

This does seem to be getting good reviews. But I don't even trust them any more. I'll wait a while to see what real people think of it. Then, being me, I'll probably wait a while longer until it's on sale. I'm patient.

I'm a sucker for Deus Ex, and Human Revolution was a real high water point for gaming for me in the past few years.

Judging by reviews the consensus seems to be that the setting, environment and gameplay are all great, while the story is the weak point. This seems to be basically the same as HR, minus the awful boss battles. Since the level design and the gameplay were what I loved about HR (the plot and the ending were fairly balls) I'm cautiously optimistic about this.

Yeah, everything I've been reading sounds like what I want. Call me a sucker but I pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe version off GMG just now since they have it for 25% off (you have to be logged in to see it otherwise it just shows as 10% off).

I'll join the ranks of the suckers due to that GMG (though with just the standard version).  why so serious?

I remember feeling a bit frustrated in Human Revolution at the inability to really explore the environment openly--there were some pretty solid rails there if you lifted up the curtains and looked backstage. The boss fights also made me very nearly quit and delete the game every time I came to one. But it was a good game on the whole. I'll probably do this one too.

I agree, for all the freedom to approach objectives in multiple ways, HR was still very much based around closed levels rather than an open world. But I think you need that to support some of the gameplay elements and narrative structures that make the gameplay compelling. Storytelling in an open world is always going to be harder than in a closed one, because you can't control the order in which the player experiences events. It also means that Ii you want to have an objective such as 'save the hostages before they're killed' you need an environment where the payer can't just add this to the quest log and wander off. They need to be hemmed in to an extent to channel them towards the goal. This sort of situation is one of the weaknesses of open world games I think. I've been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition lately and for all the good in the game it suffers the old problem that you can get a quest such as 'the village is being raided by demons' and you can put it off for hours of gameplay, safely knowing that the demons will be stuck on the cusp of the village until whatever time the player actually shows up.

Supposedly the new game is set in a single larger location, and from what I've read they've worked to make the game far more vertical. So perhaps it will feel like more of an open world game. I think though that if you tried to make a Deus Ex: Skyrim, or something similar, while it could be a great game, you'd loose other aspects of the storytelling that are better done in a tighter, more controlled environment.

Until proven otherwise, every game is shit.
But looking at the system requirements might indicate a much larger level design.
Who knows until you try it out.

Yeah, I'm having a lot of fun with it so far. It feels a little more open than the last game in that I just spent a lot of time doing something that I wasn't on a side mission for. They also give you a little bit more freedom in that you get generic parts to craft things or upgrade your weapons. One of the things you can craft is a multi-tool that will automatically hack a lock even if its level 5.

That's weird, so far my main complaints are mostly graphics related.  Some of it is probably due to the toaster I'm running the game on, but some of it is just weird (like that grain filter over everything, I don't remember that from the original).  Like, just after the first mission, when you're at the train station auto-following stripey haired girl around, everyone else was just standing around in one place.  I kept hearing stuff that sounded like two people having a conversation or argument but when I looked nobody was there.  It was when stripey started phasing straight through people that I figured something was probably glitching out, and when we got to the lobby suddenly everyone teleported to different locations.  It was... really odd.

edit: also, I'm getting some weird syncing issue with the dialogue animations.  Lip syncing is fine (as far as I can tell), but body animations are way slow and cause these huge long pauses in between every line of dialogue.

Yeah, I'm not having any of those issues at all - currently running everything on 'High' with a couple of options turned up to 'Very High'.

I need more inventory space something fierce, though - Jensen is a klepto in my playthrough so far.

You should probably get a steam refund until this shitshow can get it's act together. I might like it for $20, but for $60 I expect a bit more.

So I found a grate leading to some A/C ducts outside my apartment and followed the ducting to the place of some dude that's dealing drugs.  Knocked him and his young hooker girlfriend/squatter friend out, stole their money and guns and now I have a side quest to help them out with their drug operation.

What do?

Ha!

Based on the feedback here, and the fact that it keeps being described as "Human Revolution, only without the boss fights and with customized weapons or something" I went ahead and snagged it for PS4.

I'm not sure my PC can run it decently, and I have a PS4 so....problem solved.

The side quest doesn't require that they be conscious, you can still complete it.

I'm playing pretty much the opposite right now.  Since Human Revolution had that one early mission where if you take too long, everyone dies, I keep expecting this one to pull a Chrono Trigger and give me shit later on for eating the old man's lunch or something.  I busted up some forging ring and found the secret access codes to their vault with their take, broke in, opened it, and said to myself "I bet if I take this, the forgers get off scot free because there's no evidence.  I should leave it here just in case."

I just like standing on a catwalk and shooting people with a tranq gun. There's something that feels just right about timing it so they drop into cover, so their buddies don't see them.

Admittedly, their buddies are apparently so stupid they don't notice Jeff has disappeared. But as I'm not a ninja, I kind of need mooks that are smart enough to notice a dead body or unconscious fellow, but too dumb to count heads.
