Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Hunt for Deus Ex: Human Revolution 'QR missions'

5:00 PM on 06.21.2011 // Maurice Tan

There is a bona fide scavenger hunt for Deus Ex: Human Revolution going on in the U.S. Download the iOS app (here), and start by scanning this QR code on Facebook or this one from the game's forums. After that, you can start hunting for QR codes in the real world and online. Hints will be given on Twitter and Facebook.

You can win some prizes: the first 1,000 people to find 10 codes win a theme, and the first 10 people to find all 21 QR codes win the Augmented Edition, custom DXHR headphones, Adam Jensen action figure, and a compression sleeve. But let's be honest, you're not going to go out and hunt for these things outdoors.

If people get a collective 1 million points before August 23rd though, all participants will get an exclusive Xbox Live Avatar prop (I hope it is a bomb) or PlayStation Home thing. So you might as well register, and let other people do the work for you if you are too lazy, a foreigner, or both -- like me. The app also gives you some wallpapers and lock screens, so it's not entirely useless if you are a fan of the game, but not a fan of scavenger hunts.

Ok, with that out of the way, here's the thing. I read "QR missions" as "VR missions" at first, and got excited about the prospect of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood style VR missions for DXHR. Think of how much extra fun they could put into the game by releasing VR missions like that, without having to tie it to the story.

Not all of the AssBros missions were as fun to play competitively, but I can see something like that work for DXHR. Brief sneaking missions, assault/shooting missions, time-based objective missions, most melee kills in a row, etc. All as free DLC with leaderboards preferably, to keep people from returning it after finishing the game. Hell, I'd probably even pay a few MS Points for it if Tracer Tong gives you the mission objectives. You hear that Eidos Montreal? You'd be silly not to do it!

On a related note, community member Wry Guy will be recording a Deus Ex Nostaljourney podcast this week with a couple of community members, Jonathan Holmes, Tony Ponce, and myself. We'll be talking about why the PC version of Deus Ex is the single best game of all time and things like that. Keep an eye on his blog for when it's up.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Stealth in Payday 2 gets infinitely easier once you get the Control Freak perk.

Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.
