Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC Games Trailer - Teaser Trailer

Looks interesting. Should be good, Eidos Montreal was formed from Ubi's best branch (montreal) + Ion Storm; & SE looks like they did a good job w/ FFXIII.

I wonder when it's going to come out, still not listed at amazon even though it's set for 2010 release.

Here's an interview about the game from yesterday as well

...The first thing they did was go back to original. "That was very, very important. We all started playing it thoroughly, and then somebody voluntarily played the second one, just to make sure," he joked. "It's amazing how it sucks you right back in, it doesn't matter if it's 10 years old."...

Quote:
...These analogies were the Icarus myth, and the idea of a cyber-Renaissance. The Icarus Myth is easily described by the cyberpunk idea of transhumanism - people transcending humanity through physical (cybernetic) augmentation. Icarus was "tripping over transhumanism," said Jacques-Belletete, "he's having too much fun, he flies to close to the sun, and it burns and he falls to his death. So I thought that's my metaphor."

Then comes the idea of a cyber-Renaissance. "Why would you try so hard to mix such eclectic variables together?" he posed. Essentially, he just saw a lot of parallels between cybernetics and the learnings of the Renaissance, from the discovery of Geometry to the new breakthroughs in the study of anatomy. "If you want to upgrade a system, you first have to understand how a system works," he said, and that happened during the renaissance...

How could you even compare the greatest FPS game ever created with a sorry excuse for a Final Fantasy game.

Seems people have lost respect for FF7 & 8 already

Pretty sure that the 2nd one almost screwed the franchise over. It was...not great. But that's just imo. This however looks amazing for a teaser trailer, I am definitely intrigued. The 1st one still ranks up as quite possibly my favorite pc game of all time. Hopefully the third installment is as epic as we want it to be.

It was WAY worse than "not great." The levels were completely claustrophobic, the settings dull, the script uninspired, and the only cool part was going through the remains of UNATCO. Plus there was no payoff. At all. None.

Five available endings and every one of them sucked.

Yeah, that's pretty much how that goes.

The trailer looked to be well done. I'm interested now in this game. I like everything about that trailer. Will be looking at this game more closely. Is it too early to tell what engine the game will be running on? The FFXIII engine? I never played the first two at all but I would like to play this one.
