Review: Deus Ex: The Fall photo
Review: Deus Ex: The Fall
by Chris Carter

After a pretty tantalizing teaser, Square Enix was all set to announce the anticipated follow-up to the successful Deus Ex Human Revolution -- and much to the ire of fans, it ended up being a mobile exclusive.

It's not all bad news though, as Deus Ex: The Fall actually works pretty well considering the platform, and offers up a lighter, more portable version of Human Revolution. That said, it would have been a much better experience on a dedicated portable -- or at the very least, anything offering tactile controls.

Deus Ex: The Fall is a full-fledged experience
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Deus Ex: The Fall is a the next entry to the much loved series, heading for iOS this summer, with an Android version coming sometime there after. This may not be what you asked for, but don't write it off either. Mobile games have come a long way, and I was quite impressed with what I got to play at a recent Square Enix showing. Plus, this will be a nice hold over until whatever the next entry will be for Deus Ex on PCs and consoles.

The Fall represents a true Deus Ex experience, featuring multiple play styles, player choice, and loads of customization. More importantly, these are some of the best controls I've seen when it comes to touch screens trying to match physical inputs.

Eidos asks if we're ready for Deus Ex: The Fall

Assuming that Deus Ex: The Fall is another game installment and not some spinoff project like a graphic novel, as some of you have suggested, then yes, Eidos Montréal, we are ready for it. Thanks for asking. And thanks...

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

PAX: Deus Ex on Wii U might be the best version photo
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.

Dead Space needs a break, SimCity launch woes and Thief!

In another casual discussion from Dtoid's virtual news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Spencer Hayes to discuss the deflated rumor of a Dead Space development hiatus (one we kind of wish were true). Plus, SimCity's rocky launch demonstrates once again that you can't count on anybody to successfully launch an online-only game and the gang discusses the recently announced Thief reboot.

'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....
