Episode 4 – The One About Deus Ex

deusex

In anticipation of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Paul and Kris reach back to the year 2000 and think about what made Deus Ex such a great game and a great series.

Plus — a skit featuring Adam Jensen at the club, a voicemail message from the actualย voice ofย Adam Jensen (@EliasToufexis), and our wretched adolescent emotions on parade!

    Who invited David Hayter?

    Okay, now I have to look up who Elias played on Supernatural. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Apropos of nothing, I now have the Borderlands Handsome Collection on Xbox One, so if anyone is up for some co-op, let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I've clocked 500 hours a piece on each Borderlands title, on PC, so I suspect restarting on console would be insanity. Otherwise I'd join you!

        This is my 3rd time restarting Borderlands 2; I *will* complete it this time, I am confident! Then onto Presequel. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also remember the scene going back to the apartment and dealing with the swat team, and how cool that was… but it has been so long I'm getting a Candle Cove vibe.
    Was it really in that game or was it another one? Did it happen or was it just implied? Thank goodness for youtube playthroughs to save my sanity.

    • No no, it was totally in Deus Ex! I'm gonna replay it soon and relive that moment.

    Foucault…nice.
    And Flashback! So much French stuff this week.

    Missed out on the original Thief due to Starcraft Brood War releasing the same day.
    And then Diablo 2 released within a week of the original Deus Ex.
    Sorry, Eidos. Human Revolution was pretty great though.

    Answers to the two unresolved questions in the episode:
    Lando's ship was the Lady Luck. Enjoyed the joke about him flying a self-named ship though, especially since if you click around on Wookieepedia you find a lot of "Disambiguation: Anakin was the name of two Jedi, a droid, and a Star Destroyer. Which one are you looking for?"
    And this is what happens if you're silly enough to voluntarily get Jensen patched.

    It's great to hear your discussion of these games, because so far I haven't played any of them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I get to enjoy your discourse and learn about the greatest bits of these excellent video games. Keep it up!

    If you want to see some really cool looking prosthetic legs, look up Aimee Mullins and Viktoria Modesta.

    For those who want to run the Steam version of Deus Ex on a modern machine — go to kentie.net

    There you'll find a replacement executable and a dll for the DirectX 10 renderer that works flawlessly with Deus Ex and a bunch of other old Unreal engine games.

  • I have read some excellent stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for
    revisiting. I wonder how a lot effort you place to create this type of wonderful informative site.
