If you're a US citizen, please speak up for the unarmed black American men being murdered every week by the police. It's not about "social justice". It's about human rights.

WoW = People rushing to throw tokens up and undercutting like crazy to get in quickly before the market gluts.

You can't undercut anyone, Blizzard sets the price, and the person who puts up the token gets the price they listed it for, not the price the person bought it for.

DX12 sounds good. Hopefully they really take advantage of the performance gains there.

Hopefully the game is good and not a crappy port like GTA IV was.

Yeah if only there was some way to know before buying if a port was decent...

I hope it's not another game ruined by "shaky cam" gameplay like they did with kane and lynch 2.

Where did you come up with Kane & Lynch 2? It came out before Human Revolution, and was made by IO Interactive not Eidos Montreal. Why would Kane & Lynch have anything to do with this game?

I wonder what gameplay will look like, and what engine they're using.

Dunno about what engine they are using but the AMD graphics twitter thing said it would have DX12 support.

Looks fantastic. I need to go play through HR again before this hits. Haven't played the Director's Cut version yet. Didn't they add some ways to avoid the boss fights?

There are some more mechanics to them now so you're less likely to get boned by your choice of skills. Not completely skippable but there are more options.

The best way to avoid the bosses is to plow right through them. Make sure you have both levels of the Typhoon aug and some Typhoon ammo before the first boss fight. The game is very generous with augmentation points so you shouldn't have to sacrifice anything meaningful to get these.

Run up to boss. Use upgraded Typhoon twice. Boss is dead. Move on with game.

That Star Trek Renegades thing looks pretty good for a fan fiction thing. Excellent cast by fan project standards as well.

Author claims it was running at 60fps @ 4k, but his own screenshots of the settings show that the 4k display they are using is at a 30hz refresh rate with VSync enabled. That would not allow him to run 60fps.

The options menu looks good... lots of choices in there. We'll have to see what happens when people with more run-of-the-mill rigs get their hands on it.

You are assuming the screenshots of the settings is what he ran with. If you look at the screenshots closely you can see he is changing the settings as he is going through them (the 1st and 3rd screenshots show different memory settings than the 2nd).

So its possible that he was wrong, but its also possible he played around with the settings while going through them. We really don't know

Yes, it's possible VSync was turned off for a time. Just pointing out that there are some inconsistencies so people looking for performance information may want to wait for a more technically minded site to get their hands on the title.

Get hype.

So uh, that shield shit he used to absorb the pellets at the end was pretty cool. In fact a lot of the stuff going on in there was basically a highlight reel of new augs.

An in-built stun gun thing. Wirelessly controlling computers. That shield. The ability to fire his arm blades. Probably some more shit I didn't catch.

You will not see the difference but the refresh rate of the monitor doesn't limit the speed the game is running at.

If Vsync is on it does.

Not 100% on the lore, was there a reason JC Denton wasn't brought back for HR? I tried #2 (invisible war) but basically skipped it as it wan't my cup of tea so I don't know if it was explained in it.

DXHR is a prequel set 2 years before JC Denton was born. Mankind Divided is allegedly set in 2029, the same year JC Denton is born.

Or are you asking more generally why they did a prequel instead of another sequel?

Curious but for this to happen, are they going to allude to which was the 'right' choice you made at the end of Human Revolution to make the events in this title possible?

They already set themselves up for an easy workaround on that by having a relatively weak ending to DXHR. They showed us nothing of the actual consequences of our actions in those endings, just alluded to them with Jensen's monologues. Nothing says that his actions actually made a damn bit of difference as he thought they would. Maybe the signal didn't get out, maybe it was a trick by Eliza Cassan.

They can really take that anywhere without retconning a thing.

Really excited for this. DX:HR was amazing. I finished it 3 times (last time GOTY edition with dev comments, really interesting experience!).

I'm happy to see they're using the same protagonist again, Adam Jensen. Also looking forward to the original Deus Ex remake coming 2018.

I was worried they might go with a new protagonist that I may or may not like but hearing that Adam is back is really great. He, like JC Denton, is a bit of a blank slate for the player to write in, but he has enough characterization to make him memorable. Not to mention a really cool visual design.

Although boss fights and linear pathing have been in PC-only games for decades, I believe the "cover shooter" is primarily a console invention that has rarely been seen on PC outside of console ports.

Well, it's rarely been seen on PC outside of console ports because PC exclusive shooters have been almost non-existent for a very long time, and the ones that do come along are often multiplayer focused which means that kind of cover system is mostly irrelevant.
