      Curing cancer wouldn’t make up for FFXIII-2.

        Though if the did cure cancer, we wouldn’t tell them it doesn’t make for up it.

          I think a good, stoic news anchor could deliver that bit of news quite easily.  
          Anchor: “Doctors announced today that they have found a universal cure for cancer that is safe, affordable, and available as an over-the-counter purchase.  The FDA has already approved nationwide distribution of the drug by the end of the month.  In response to this announcement, the international terrorist organization, Square-Enix, has publicly threatened to release FFXIII-2 on the same day the medicine becomes available.  For this reason, many pharmacy chains have already announced that they will not be stocking the drug.  In related news, Australia has preemptively banned all media that acknowledges the existence of a cure for cancer.”

    For some reason it reminds me of Ghost in the Shell and Metal Gear Solid. And I really like both of those things.

       I’d suggest playin the first 2 in the series. The first game is sorta dated and many dislike Invisible War but they are both very good games.

    I would recommend torrenting the preview of Deus Ex 3 which was leaked. It does present a much better “demo” of the game and I can’t wait to buy the full game proper when it’s out.

    i too am really pumped for this game, but i heard many people felt the demo they had was very underwhelming. hope you’re right Spoony, and it’s just the game can’t make for a good demo.

    the preview build captures the game much much better. its about 10 hours of the game (roughly 1/3 im told) and its amazing.

    • http://twitter.com/Iscin Iscin

      I think it’s more like one fifth of total game content and story. But I agree it demonstrates the game much better as my earlier comment supports you on.

      But remember kids, if you torrent and like something, go buy it. Personally I will be pre-ordering the augmented edition on Steam shortly before release. (Need some more spending cash first)

      Lets all go for a Deus Ex trilogy marathon when it comes out!

      • Renaissance_nerd

        already pre orderd my augmented edition. I love Cyberpunk

    • http://twitter.com/GeurgeNewell George Bradley

      This, so much. I was on the fence as to whether I was going to buy Deus Ex, played the demo and I pre ordered the moment I stopped playing. Like Spoony said, a 10 minute demo isn’t going to do the game justice at all.

    Another futuristic espionage shooter game for the Xbox and PlayStation….Zzzzzzzz Snore….ZZzzzzz
    wait… this one looks more futuristic than the other 3 million console games just like it Whooopieeee! I’m excited. Oh hey there’s a Nintendo their showing a new Zelda game after half a decade lets go bash them for not being innovative and original enough. Bah! link spinning a sword? What’s with that guy and swords! Is he supposed to be some kind of protector of the kingdom or something?

        If only you were smart to watch videos before posting you’d realize to keep your comments to yourself. There’s a difference between criticism and completely bashing a product without giving it a chance. Spoony gets excited over a game genre we’ve all pretty much seen done to death but tosses aside completely new game technology because he basically just personally doesn’t like the company it’s coming from? Does that make sense to you. Here lets over look an Ipad3 to take a look at a palm pilot from 1996 because I don’t like Apple computers. Once again I rarely bother to post on this website mostly because of all the Spoonyfanboys and girls that drivel on every word he says like Saliva. Learn to think for yourself for once and not let someone else think for you.

          A game genre done to death? I don’t think so. To be honest I haven’t seen that many cyberpunk games. The only ones that I’ve ever played are System Shock, System Shock 2, Deus Ex and Deus Ex Invisible War (which sucked), so to say the genre has been done to death is unfair. From the looks of Human Revolution it does look fresh, exciting, and above all innovative. To look at a game’s setting alone and toss it aside as being unoriginal is unfair since you haven’t even bothered to look at the rest of the game: the characters, the story, the themes, and at the very least the game-play. Once you’ve done that you can then have a valid opinion.
          And no we are not all Spoony fanboys and fangirls. I have disagreed with his opinion in the past but on this occasion I fully agree with him and I am just as excited as he is for the game.

          • Joshua D’souza

            System Shock and Deus Ex are two of the greatest things ever, so what’s the problem with using the setting? I doubt Gozarisa’s even played those games. Probably hates Blade Runner as well.

            If he finds the cutesy Zelda setting more appealing, then to each his own. I like fantasy settings more than sci-fi ones, but the Zelda and Mario settings are lame. It’s doesn’t haelp that gameplay-wise, things that people get excited by are lame gimmicks like crappy mini-games.

            And who cares if the setting is unoriginal anyway? It’s the gameplay and plot that make a game. Baldur’s Gate 2 takes place in a generic D&D fantasy setting, but it’s still good because of the way the game mechanics and story were implemented into the setting. You can also have a somewhat unoriginal setting (the steampunk-ish dark fantasy of the Thief series, for example), but make it interesting by adding your own flavor to it.

          If you expect a fair and balanced review, you should probably visit some other site. I can’t believe this is such a difficult thing to grasp.

          • Anonymous

            Is that the generic response from people on this website that happen to have an opinion outside the reviewers? “Go somewhere else?”

            In that case if you had a problem with my comment, why not just skip over it and “go to another comment? Take your own advice. The world isn’t full of sugar and lollipops.

            If your a critic expect to be criticized it’s part of the game. If you put your work on a public website don’t expect 100% of everyone that watches it to praise it. Truthfully I don’t expect Spoony to give a “Fair” review on anything. His work is always biased on his personal opinion. However, that doesn’t mean that checking out the work of different reviewers doesn’t mean they might pick up details that another one skipped over that might be interesting (which is why you should never base your purchases off one mans opinion). I just think it was lazy on his part to go to an Expo and go into detail over only what he finds interesting and skip over other products that his audience might find interesting. As big of a deal at the Wii-U is, it was just really unprofessional to blow it off and not even bother to understand what it was because he’s just not personally interested in Nintendo. That’s what I’m getting at but I guess that went over a lot of peoples heads.

            I used to enjoy coming to this place but I stopped paying attention to the videos less and less. What fun is it if you have Spoony’s body gaurds/fanbase jumping all over people’s comments that disagree with him. Why would I waste the time out my day to watch a video if you can’t honestly comment on it? Even the moderator’s delete and try to censor people who make comments that challenge or question the review material on this website. Just about every year around this time people come to check out the E3 coverage hoping they can get some good info. Spoony goes off ranting, instead of “covering” and people get upset. Then these upset people make very good and valid comments, then they get blocked,Censored, or deleted. Truthfully I’m not all that concerned with how Spoony reviews the problem is with the people on this forum who make it their point to attack the other posters for telling the truth. It’s like a civil war on here between Spoony’s fans and Spoony’s viewers. His fans that hug on and praise everything he does no matter how horrible it really might be they just cheer. Then you have his viewers that watch, and give praise when they see something is great, and give boo’s when it’s needed. They don’t just clap at every video that’s posted up. They’re not going to lie they tell it like it is. They don’t come to the website to bash anybody they just give honest opinions. It’s pretty sad to see that the “viewers” are the ones that get penalized.  Anyone I’m one reviewer less you guys have to worry about I rarely came here because of the previously mentioned but now I’m really done this place is removed from my favorites. Some of you people need to grow up but most of you are manchildren so I suppose that will never happen.

          Spoony doesnt work for for fucking IGN or Gamespot he does not have to be “fair and unbiased” its just him, and his opinion. Just like i can have my opinion that you are a massively butthurt nintendo fanboy, spoony and can feel however he wants about nintendos fisher price gaming products.

          • Joshua D’souza

            Also, if he watched the entire video, he would have seen that Spoony was less excited about the demo.

      You’re a schmuck, and Zelda is a stagnant franchise. Deal with it.

  • http://twitter.com/Okanehira Okanehira

    Spoony don’t despair i’ve played the Deus Ex 12 Hour leak on PC (I played 3 hours or so then stopped so i wouldn’t ruin the games story) but it is AWESOME, very very awesome.

    I love Cyberpunk, Neuromancer/Snowcrash/Blade Runner etc.. and it gets the feel just right, the music & lighting and gameplay are all great.

    About the graphics it looks like console footage on your video, even the leaked early build PC version is better than that.

    Is anybody else worried that the most we see in all these trailers is pre-rendered cutscenes, not gameplay?

    I hear it’s good… but still… I’d like to see more game, less movie.

    word of technical advise… again :D
    i just – literally a minute ago – commented on your star trek interview concerning the wireless mic. my advise is simple: do not use wireless microfones if you dont have to. this might sound like a downer but if you ask any professionel sound engineer he will tell you the same. wireless transmissions for mics will never have the qualitiy like wired ones. i know your doing all by yourself basically (which is amazing!) but if you can afford someone (id be glad to help you ^^) who can listen live to your sound you should consider getting someone. so if you or your interview partner doesnt need to walk around stick with wires. they are much more reliable and you wont get those ugly interferences. i guess you did a great job trying to fix these because it was bearable ;)
    and if your worried that you dont look “professional” enough with a wired mic – dont worry because what counts is the final product and sound issues are much more distracting than a small balck xlr-cable could ever be ;)
    i hope you find my tips helpful and appreciate them. yours truly!

    Well, one can see why the demo wouldn’t live up to the expectations one has for it, since it was really just the devs going “here, you can finally get your hands on it for a little” and Deus Ex isn’t a game you can really get an appreciation for with just a short segment of actiony gameplay.

  • Anonymous

    Wow I’ve never seen you as exited to play a game in ages and I can’t blame you, Deus Ex Human Revolution looks awesome and more importantly it looks and even feels like the original Deus Ex.

    From what I heard from people playing the leaked beta version the first level is your standard shoot-out but from the second level onwards the game is completely different and lives up to hype. In a way its similar to my experience with the first level of the original game. I remember playing it and thinking this was nothing special but upon entering the UNATCO HQ that all changed, it was onwards and upwards from then on.

        Why do I get the feeling the only purpose of the summoned monster
    mechanic is so Square-Enix doen’t have to program and animate new party
    members beyond the bare minimum of that new guy and the moogle? Seriously,
    is it me? 
        Cuz it sure looks like they copy-pasted the monster animation and AI from XIII and stuck it to your team as an ally. Way too lazy on Square-Enix’s part…..

    It’s kind of strange to see a prequel with a branching storyline. I mean, we know how it’s going to end. I hope they will at least seriously explore what it’s like to be a mech: in Deus Ex mechs were shown as very unsympathetic and crippled killing machines, but this time around you get to play as one.

    Did you play the leaked game? My friend who hates all modern games these days said it’s the best game  he’s played in forever and he’s saying it’s holding up to the first. It sounds awesome.

    Some of my hype for Deus Ex HR kind of went away after seeing Prey 2. Which looks even more awesome. But fortunately their release is probably a year apart at least. So plenty of time to enjoy Deus Ex HR to the fullest an try to forget about Prey 2 for now lol.

    I’m really looking forward to this game and Dark Souls (pre-ordered both). I’ve never played any game in the Deus Ex series but from what the fans have been saying about the first game, it sounds really promising.

I’ve never played any of the Deus Ex games but from hearing fans speak highly of the first game, it sounds like Human Revolution will be promising. Sounding like a story-intensive game, I agree that it just seems like it’s not the kind of game you can get a feel for in a demo.

  • Joshua D’souza

    Might pick this up, but after Revelations, I’m not so sure.

    Also, LMAO at the butthurt Nintendo fanboys. If you found that video offensive, get off the internet now.

    After playing the leaked beta it feels like the real sequel to Deus Ex. (Yeah I admit it I played the beta, but the beta gave me enough trust for the full game to preorder it) The story and atmosphere feels like Deus Ex and the choices in missions feel like Deus Ex too.  The beta had the first city in it and it felt like NYC in the first DX with the side missions, NPC’s etc.

    + The combat isn’t that bad. As for stealth, you can’t really spam takedowns because it takes a lot of energy.

    Something I like about indie reviewers like Spoony and Angry Joe is how earnest their opinions are. B/c they say when they hate a game and why they have credibility when they praise a game. Part of why the demo might seem underwhelming and disappointing is b/c you’re so hyped. Remember, at best a trailer shows what the team is aiming for. You don’t really know what the game will be like until the hands-on demo. 

    It’s an odd thing to say, but from the demo footage Spoony showed the levels looked sparse and office-like. Where’s all the litter in the street? Dim lighting? Flying cars above you? Also, for the bits of folks walking, we’ve seen better in ME2. However, I still expect DE3′s story to blow ME’s away. So long as Ubisoft handles it more akin to Ion Storm, and not hamfistedly like AssCreed (which we’ven’t seen evidence to believe it’ll), it will be good.
