Here is a nice article on the visual design of DX3. http://www.gamasutra.com/view/featur...ature+Articles)

I've got to say, the new trailer is a thing of beauty. I've watched it a couple of times now and it's so damn atmospheric. IGN has posted a new preview with screenshots too. The art direction is amazing.

I can't wait to play this game.

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I don't know if you played the original game but those screens show that they've got the essence of the Deus Ex world down perfectly.

Unfortunately I haven't experienced the earlier instalments, though they've always been on my must play list -- just never actually got around to them. I love that sort of dystopian setting, though. Blade Runner. Stark in The Longest Journey. Omega in Mass Effect 2. The world looks fully realized too. It's the little touches of detail, like the street signs in the subway station and the news anchor on the TV. Being a sequel, it's a whole lot more ambitious than they probably needed to be. (That's far from a bad thing, though.)

I'm most definitely impressed.

That trailer is amazing (except voice acting) and we can see Square Enix talent for CG movies, thaey are one of the best in that department.

The look is very inspired by Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell and Akira, and thats fine, those are the pinnacle of cyberpunk setting. About what we know, the game looks promising especially after reading Eurogamer's preview. It wont have the freedom of the original, but i hope it will be better than the sequel, at least seems that Eidos Montreal knows what made Deus Ex so good and Deus Ex 2 so dissapointing.

Looking forward to this - especially as someone who liked both DX1 and 2 (though 1 was obv. better).


EDIT: So it should be out when I go back to uni. They ALWAYS do that!

I really liked Deus Ex 2. Unlike what people said, the story of the game was really good and carried the original arc further. The ending was really awesome. The only problem I thought was the consolized gameplay. Otherwise, it was far from a disappointment.

Here's hoping Eidos/Square Enix release the previous games in a bundle or on GOG or something...

Deux Ex and Deux Ex Invisible War are both brilliant games in the same genre and quality as Anachronox and Omikiron, a growing family of wonderful beautifully concieved and created world games. I am looking forward to Deux Ex III very much. Now we can hope for the sequel to Anachronox.

Leaked 20 minute gameplay videos from E3.

Seriously leaked so bad quality and head_covering_half_of_screen (as shown above).

Disappearing rapidly from the interwebs I believe, so make haste
Edit: Since that indeed disappeared, go here and then here.

I've been waiting for a game like this A game that sits somewhere between the "sandbox" structure of Fallout 3 and the linear, cinematic experience of Uncharted 2. In the gameplay footage, you can see a level of detail that just isn't possible in an open-world game, and a sense of freedom that heavily scripted games do not allow.

It helps that the cyberpunk style is probably my all-time favourite for fictional settings

Though the design here is more along the lines of Cyberpunk DaVinci/Victorian. A more intense and beautiful art direction.

I know, but the footage still screams Blade Runner, which isn't something I'm going to complain about.

Well so far, it looks like a console game and seems to be playing like a console game. Leave it up to me to be the pessimistic one. Are you really surprised? haha.

After getting my hopes up for Deus Ex 2 and being horribly let down by the generic consolization and butchering of one of my favorite titles I am not about to do it again. I am sure it will be a great watered down version of what it could have been though.
