I hate pay to play DLC, and yet I love Deus Ex.

I am conflicted!

News Comments > Why Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a Prequel
14. Re: Why Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a Prequel Sep 1, 2011, 14:35 rist3903
 
I have a minor criticism though. My inventory is full and I pretty much have everything I want or need so there's no more thrill at discovering weapons or ammo or mods or anything like that. That aspect of the game has basically disappeared which is a shame. In DX1 there was stuff to acquire right up to the last levels and I was always happy when I found sniper ammo or tranq darts or aug upgrade modules or cattle prod charges. In HR now it's all about XP and money to buy more Praxis and pretty soon I'll be upgraded as much as I care to be so even that will lose its luster.

Some of it is the fact that with stealthy takedowns you no longer need things like tranq darts or stun gun ammo like you did in DX1. Also in DX1 you could shoot out cameras and even some doors with sniper rifle but the HR rifle can't do that so I have no use for it. I just dumped my rocket launcher and I'll probably get rid of the tranq rifle too and probably the combat rifle as I just don't see a use for those down the road so I don't care about finding ammo for them either.

I agree that ammo was not a concern in the least. I sold everything I didn't need and then money wasn't a concern either. There should have been some concern!

This is taking a page from MMO's a bit but it would have been cool if you could donate ammo and equipment you didn't need to some cause you believe in -if you gave them enough it would alter the world in some way. Would have been neat to pick your cause. An example would be some anti big brother movement where they would eventually sabotage random security cameras you would come across in your travels.

I am hoping this all means they are planning on putting out more Deus Ex content in a timely manner, and hopefully not in microtransaction DLC form.

Are you talking about the level streaming? Whenever you enter an area, it has to stream in and that's going to cause hitching regardless of your system.

If it is streaming, it is taking its sweet time, as I have loaded an area and started moving 3 minutes later and had it still chunk while I turned. it seems to be fine once I turn all directions but has a hard time with the initial look around. This only happens on the big maps, like Detroit and whatnot.

Not sure, though. I've hardly paid attention to when I get it, and though I strive for it I am not making it a true goal. Otherwise I'd probably quick-load anytime I was noticed.

Quickload? I have yet to find one.

There's another link about CPU performance under today (Monday's) Tech Bits.

Checking it out. Cripes, do I have to upgrade again?

DirectX 9 or 11? (edit: Guess you're running 9 is you're using XP)
Looking at this chart (last one, CPU Usage) it looks like if you're using 9 and 2 cores, it could take up to 100% of the proc, which may be what you're seeing.

Also, Blue posted this, and you cold try and tweak your settings a bit.

Hmm that guide said Directx 11 had more CPU utilization than 9. Perhaps it is finally time to contemplate upgrading my operating system.

Thanks for the prompt replies!

What's your proc? I saw something awhile back that basically said the more cores you had, the better, performance wise.

Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00 GHz with more ram than I need for Xp, which I am running.

I thought I should have no problems with this and I am only running at 1280*1024 which is my monitor's max.

I am absolutely loving this game, but it is not running well on my computer and I am extremely interested to know why. I have a GTX 460 and a decent two year old motherboard so I don't think I should be getting choppy frame rate while turning on the larger maps, but there it is. This crops up whenever I load as well, unfortunately. Any suggestions?

I can't believe Gamestop is making me root for Onlive.

Lesser of two evils, I suppose.

I originally ignored all the chatter about this game, because it read bad 'on paper', but holy hell, they did a good job with 3D side scrolling looking great...

Now if only castlevania could do this...

I constantly daydreamed while playing through the first one about what these guys could have done with the Castlevania or dare I say Metroid license.

Just because there are positive examples of people in a community does not mean that gameplay mechanics of the genre do not lend themselves to people getting extremely irritated at new players. One person on a team can cause the team to lose, making the others pissed at him.

If you consider that this is a very common occurrence, it is easy to extrapolate from that that quite a few in the community are somewhat unfriendly to the uninitiated.

This actually made me want to see what it was... I don't see the irony though... Isn't To catch a predator about youths? This guy is 51, shacking up with a 30 year old... Again, where's the issue?

The issue is most likely the sexting while married, which has been shown to be an accurate intelligence test of late.

There is some Schadenfreude to be had due to the fact that he was implicitly putting himself on the moral high ground as host of To Catch a Predator.

What do you guys think of the +10 you see during a kill?

I would very much like for them to have that be something you could turn off.

They did work hats into portal 2 with robots wearing them

I would be very interested in seeing how many of those they have sold. The game structure does not seem compatible with microtransactions.

Still amazes me how far Family Guy and its associated properties have gone given that the show nor its creator have had an original idea ever.
Everything is derivative.

Jesus, is it possible for me to go online and not see at least one grotesquely racist message per day?

Welcome to the internet.

As far as the game goes, can anyone translate that video? I am wondering why the blue soldier with the Hitler mustache is speaking to a platoon of red soldiers.

Female sniper! I hope Valve steals that right back.
