Embracer Group announced a deal to acquire three studios from Square Enix. The deal includes Crystal Dynamics, Eidos-Montréal, and Square Enix Montréal as well as associated IPs including Tomb Raider and Deus Ex.
It’s time to break out the oil cans and question our humanity. We’re talking about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (with a little bit of Human Revolution thrown in) on this week’s episode of RPG Backtrack, featuring guests Josh and Sam.
Action!Jensen didn’t ask for a sequel. He also didn’t ask to be a basketball star/super agent/whiskey lover. What he did ask for was that fangirls back off and take a number.
It’s not easy being a technological leader, and augmenting the human body through new metal parts causes lots of people to get angry. In this case though, bringing down the people who get angry with those new metal parts is highly encouraged. Move to Detroit – it’ll get better.
Expectations are always high when a really good game gets a sequel. In the case of the Deus Ex series those expectations were not met, and it stayed dormant for years. This was probably deserved. Boing boing, go the bodies!
The military-industrial complex is no better in the future, unless having it be a worldwide instead of US organization is some kind of improvement. Striking a blow against it, however, very worth doing. ED-209 looks dangerous. Probably because it is.
Sometimes a game just makes you wonder ‘why’. Why replicate a console shooter on a tablet? Why is it a sequel to a tie-in novel? Why port it to PC? Why spend money on this?
We may have asked for better boss fights, but its doubtful anyone wanted tablet gimmicks or an English language audio commentary recorded by French Canadians. RPGamers can’t win them all, even by the year 2027. Put on your trench coat and find a conspiracy…again.
In a crazy world where corporations have their own militaries and people are running around with arms and legs that can blast an area with explosive projectiles, at least we can rest assured that there is no spoon.
