I'll wish Harvey Smith the best of luck in his new game studio, but considering the decisions he made for Ex Deus : IW, it's a fairly safe bet I'll never pick up any of his games.
It doesn't bode well for Ion Storm that two of their top guys walk, though. My guess is that the original Deus Ex will be the only quality title we'll ever see coming out of there.
Edit : "It seems like a sad irony when two of the biggest names in PC gaming (Warren Spector and John Carmack) have both expressed interest in designing games that are "easier" and more assessable, like console games"
The thing is, though, I wouldn't have any problem with that whatsoever (well, not as if either Carmack or Spector would give a fuck on if I have a problem with it or not
). What bugged me about Ex Deus is that Spector just plain out fucking LIED about it.
If they wanted to make a dumbed down "easier" game, fine, but at least fucking ADMIT to it. Don't give me this "Well, it's streamlined, but still as deep as the first!" crap.
A Deus Ex action title... Words just fail me.
