Deus Ex fans rejoice, the time for the human revolution is fast approaching! This assumes you consider waiting for five months “fast”. In celestial time, that’s barely an eye blink!
Square Enix recently released the official North American release date of Deus Ex: Human Revolution as August 23rd. Austrailia gets it two days later on the 25th and the UK gets it on the 26th. I remember the summer of 2000 when Deus Ex, Icewind Dale and Diablo 2 all released on the same day. I was the most excited about Diablo 2 but ended up playing Icewind Dale to death. I started up Deus Ex, died a lot in the beginning and then put it away but eventually got back into it and really enjoyed it. The funny thing is that I don’t remember a lot about the game which makes me wonder if I really liked it as much as I think I did, or my memory is too fuzzy and I’m just filling in the blanks with love that didn’t happen. Maybe those memories have been implanted by a shadowy government agency so that I’ll buy this new one. It could happen!
If you have an extra ten bucks in your wallet when the game drops you can get the Augmented Edition (nice wordplay there Squeenix) which comes with 10,000 in game dollars, a bunch of new weapons with super-serious names like the SERSR Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle and the M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device (UR-DED). You also get another mission, an art book, a making of DVD complete with motion comic and a coupon for a free arm-blade implantation. That last one is a joke, but I so wish it wasn’t.
