Quake III's Q3DM17

Level 28! No, the other kind of level. The type that you run around in, shooting people or jumping on their heads and that sort of thing. Adam, Alec, Alice and Graham gather to discuss their favourite levels and/or maps from across the vast length of PC gaming, including selections from Deus Ex, Call of Duty and Quake III. Someone even makes a case for Xen from Half-Life, and means it.

Community Announcements - Poticha
15 years ago, the very first Deus Ex game was released on PC. To this day, it is still considered a classic and one of the most influential titles ever created.



To celebrate this anniversary, we have prepared a special four-episode documentary telling the genesis of the series, from the original Deus Ex to the upcoming Mankind Divided. Check out the first episode below, with original game creators Warren Spector, Chris Norden and Sheldon Pacotti!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSOuYmO8ncc
We’re also giving you the opportunity to choose the contents of the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Collector's Edition. The choice is yours - items like an Adam Jensen replica statue, a mini artbook, a replica weapon and a pin set (among others), are up for selection until July 3. Vote here!



Finally, Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal have partnered with GameChanger Charity, a non-profit focused on improving the lives of children suffering from life-threatening diseases. It makes an impact by providing direct services in hospitals, delivering video game gifts & supporting families financially.

We’ll provide donors with a free PC digital copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut for every contribution made to the charity in excess of $1 – and they will have the ability to decide how their funds will be used by GameChanger. To donate, please visit: http://dx15.org.

what a neat beard. Where does he find the time?

I know it’s not really called Deus Ex 4 in any shape or form, but ‘Deus Ex: Mankind Divided‘ [official site] is long and headlines boxes are short. You get the point though: here’s the best part of half an hour of Adam Jensen asking for it in Square’s upcoming stealth-or-death sequel. On show: new augmentations, purportedly improved combat, ‘social boss fight system’, a gun which fires swords from your wrist and a new, grumpy pilot who keeps talking about coffee.

Also, it’s very pretty, but my graphics card is frightened. Video and my own notes on it below, anyway. … [visit site to read more]

We can dance we dance everything's under control

You didn’t ask for this. You didn’t ask for this because if you know the I Didn’t Ask For This meme then surely you already own Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and thus have no interest in it being discounted to 3.99 in a pack also including Deus Ex 1 and Invisible Whatever. What a shame. But if you don’t> already own Human Revolution, then oh my God this price is the bomb! The bomb! … [visit site to read more]

This took rather longer than we thought. But after five entries, and two weeks, I’ve come to my conclusions. You can read the whole saga here, if you’ve not yet caught up, as I chronicle my experience of replaying Deus Ex – a game I’ve always maintained is the Best Game Ever – fifteen years later. Was I wrong? Is it even possible for me to be wrong? Read on.

My chronicle of returning to Deus Ex fifteen years later, to see if I’m right when I tell anyone who comes near that it’s the best game ever, is nearing its end. You can read the whole saga here.

In this fifth part I contemplate the significant change in approach in the last third of the game, and then make my choice for the ending.>

And so continues my chronicle of returning to Deus Ex fifteen years later, to see if I’m right when I tell anyone who comes near that it’s the best game ever. You can read the whole saga here.

In this fourth edition, I once more fail to save my brother, become increasingly frustrated with the limits of the game’s intelligence, and ponder whether real choice is actually usefully conveyed to the player.>

As my re-exploration of Deus Ex continues, I find my memories clashing with the reality of the game, as I try to establish if it’s still the Best Game Ever . You can read the whole saga here. It’s accusing me of crimes I didn’t commit, an in turn, I start committing some crimes.>

Here continues my attempt to discover if Deus Ex really is the best game ever, like my brain thinks. Part One is here. Today I yet again struggle to get the game working, then struggle to work within the game. But cheer myself up reading some newspapers.
