“Deus Ex 3 Trailer” or “J.C. Denton Lives? Say it is so!”

I don’t know of anyone who didn’t love the complexity and depth of the original Deus Ex: Machina. Well except for Tom Chick, but he’s weird. Opinions on the second game vary, but contrasting it against the original masterpiece, I for one was severely underwhelmed.

GDC just launched the teaser trailer for the third game in the series, called Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution. Those cigarette screens from a week back finally make sense.

I am excited about it, although the CGI trailer tells you absolutely nothing about the gameplay, story or setting. Still, a great teaser!

“Deus Ex 3 is all About the Camels” or “What the Hell Does This Have to do With Anything?”

For the last time, it’s not pronounced ‘do sex’.

Apparently, the third game in the iteration is all about smoking ciggarettes in as high a ploygon-count as possible. The rendered images look stunningly photo-realistic, but as is the case with this type of empty hype (that rhymed!), the images, in of themselves, don’t amount to anything.

Still pretty cool though!

“Deus Ex: The Nameless Mod” or “Se7en years in the Making”

November 27, 2009 1 comment

Deus Ex remains to this day one of the most satisfying games I have ever played. I have fond memories of it from well over eight years ago, when it was first released. The developers back then released a toolset, allowing modders to create their own worlds. However, after about 2-3 years, most mods died out or simply faded into oblivion.

One project, The Nameless Mod, trudged on steadily, and on November 22, 2009, finally reached the finish line.

It has been seven years since the modding team, Off Topic Productions, had started work on the mod.

I found out about the mod’s release very recently, courtesy of RPS. They also conducted an interview with the Chief Creative Officer (mod leader) of Off Topic Productions, Jonas W√¶ver. It’s an interesting read, and gives some valuable insight into what it takes to keep a mod alive for so long.

Eight years later, I can’t even recall where my Deus Ex CDs are, not that I would have time at the moment to check it out. But if you were ever a fan, you can check it out here.
