Another peek at Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut

Addressing notable flaws in the original release's design and taking advantage of the Wii U's system-specific features, Deux Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut sounds good on paper. How's it look in motion? This v...

[April Fool's] Deus Ex goes 2D retro in Human Defiance

Not to be confused with the upcoming Wii U port -- which is, in fact, not an April Fools gag (angry comments coming in 3 ... 2... 1 ...) -- Deus Ex will be making the jump to 2D in Human Defiance -- well, at least in some al...

Hocus Focus: One of Thief's newest systems is optional

A lot of scrutiny has been directed toward the newly announced, next generation Thief game. In fact, enough people in the official Thief forum have been concerned about a detective mode-esque "Focus" ability that Eidos Montre...

PAX: Deus Ex on Wii U might be the best version
by Alasdair Duncan

It seems the one thing we've really heard the most fuss about Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is the boss battles. Whilst they were a bone of contention in the original versions of the game, this newer version on the Wii U has boss fights that are much more adaptable and more in-tune with the Deus Ex ethos. That's not the only thing to get fixed up though -- there's a whole host of improvements and tweaks being made to the game.

First of all, this is the full Human Revolution experience; The Missing Link and Tong's Rescue DLC packs are seamlessly put into the game. Secondly there's a raft of tweaks, new features and fan service implemented into the game along with an impressive set of Wii U GamPad features.

Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation out today

While Eidos Montreal has had a secret Deus Ex project in the works, it's not a new game. The studio has teamed up with OverClocked ReMix and the composer of the original Deus Ex, Alexander Brandon, to craft eight remixes from the classic Deus Ex. Tracks will be released via the Deux Ex Facebook fan page over the course of the next few weeks, with the first track available today.

Even more, we've had the chance to sit down with Eidos Montreal's audio director, Steve Szczepkowski, to talk about the project, including questions as to why they're focusing on the original Deus Ex rather than the more-recent Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and why Alexander Brandon wasn't tapped to score the latter after his success with the original game.

'Deus Ex: Human Defiance' is just the upcoming movie

When word got out about Square Enix trademarking Deus Ex: Human Defiance, some of us got a bit carried away. The name, in our defense, did seem like a rather fitting title for a potential follow-up to 2011's Human Revolution....

Deus Ex: Human Defiance trademarked by Square Enix

It looks like we'll be getting a sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix has taken out a trademark on Deus Ex: Human Defiance, and since the first game was rather successful, this isn't a huge surprise. Maybe th...

Deus Ex movie won't be a videogame movie

So it looks like we're still getting that Deus Ex movie, whether we like it or not. The tragic history of film adaptations of videogames makes me less than enthused about the project; however, the setting and philosophical qu...
