Deus Ex Collection with 4 games only £4.60 on PC

You have to love PC gaming sometimes, it's so often cheaper to buy an entire series rather than just one game at most other sites. We'd certainly advise picking up all the Deus Ex games too and GMG's code sees the already attractive £5.74 four game bundle slashed down to a rather bonkers £4.60. And to think, that won't get you two pints of beer in most pubs.

The games included in this collection are Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, Deus Ex: The Fall, Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition and Deus Ex: Invisible War. If you like your FPS games a bit more considered and with a rich variety of choice instead of plodding down linear corridors and shooting an array of foreigners on America's behalf, then dive in tonight.

Thanks to BuzzDurband.

Deus Ex GOTY Edition just £1.24 at Green Man Gaming

Deus Ex GOTY Edition | Green Man Gaming | £1.24 | Price Comparison

As Jon put it once -- Calling Deus Ex a “Game of the Year” is an understatement of incredible proportions. It’s like calling the Pyramids the ‘rock piles of the week‘.

It’s one of the best games ever made, and Green Man Gaming have dropped it down to £1.24 as they like to do every so often. If you've somehow never played it, make sure you snap it up at this price. It's an utter steal for what is one of the finest gaming experiences ever to be had. Cheers bandwidth bob.

Oh Daikatana, how we've totally not missed you.

It strikes me that an entire gaming generation now exists, the members of which are completely oblivious to the fact that there was a time when developers were rock gods who could invite you to "suck it down".

That's not necessarily a bad thing on second thoughts.

The reason for this nostalgic prattle is that Humble Bundle have teamed up with Square Enix for this fortnight, and you can pay what you want to bag Thief Gold, Mini Ninjas, Daikatana, Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Anachronox. If you beat the average ($7.92 at the time of writing) you'll also unlock Deus Ex: Invisible War, Deus Ex: The Fall, Hitman: Absolution, Battlestations Midway and the Nosgoth Veteran Pack. Those who pay $15 or more will receive all of the above, plus Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, Just Cause 2, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition and Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.

Do it for Anachronox. Carl will love you forever.

Old Favourites: The Games We Come Back To Each Year

Bank holiday weekends are lovely occasions. Although the Internet never really sleep, most of the news mills grind to a halt over the long weekend, and there's a calm stillness in the air... unless you listen closely, of course. Strain your ears a little and you'll hear the various bleeps and bloops denoting gamers everywhere knocking titles off of their backlogs, sampling those new titles or Steam deal purchases that they've finally gotten around to playing, or diving back into old favourites.

Star Wars Day yesterday allowed for a little reflection on that last point. Since I first saw the original trilogy back when I was nine, that universe has become a place of comfort and escape, through multiple mediums. But as well as watching all six films each and every year, Star Wars has also given me a game that I frequently return to in the shape of Knights of the Old Republic. BioWare's magnificent RPG constantly vies with Grim Fandango for the accolade of my favourite game of all time, and it's down to the story, the characters, the manner in which I, as a player, am invited to have my own adventure in the Star Wars universe, and what an adventure it is.

Just as there are books and films that I make a point of reading and watching at least once every year, so too there are games that warrant the same treatment. Some of them have stories I've simply fallen in love with, there are those that get replayed simply because they're excellent fun and mechanically masterful, and then there are others that perhaps hold some personal significance for me.

It's gotten more difficult over the past few years, of course. To be honest, when you're playing everything that comes through your inbox, it's often hard to find the time to keep these annual traditions alive. But it's those games that have gained some sort of special significance that tend to be the ones we hold onto. Here are a handful of titles that I still manage to make time for, year in and year out without fail.

Game Buzz | Episode 49 - Half Life 3 Is Definitely (Maybe) Coming!!

And it's the BEST GAME EVER!

This week on Game Buzz we get stuck into GTA Online and the Battlefield 4 beta, we chat about the recent Half-Life 3 trademark and its interesting timing, we have a natter about Star Citizen and crowdfunding, and Jon sings the Deus Ex theme tune before suggesting the best developer mashup ever.

Apologies for the sound quality on this one, by the way. But do give it a listen, this week's Game Buzz is pretty awesome.

Game Buzz | Episode 49 - Half Life 3 Is Definitely (Maybe) Coming!! Recorded 4th October, 2013.

Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be some instances of strong language.

NB. Due to recent server migration, we still currently don't have access to the FTP so the YouTube embed is the only source for this week's podcast. We will, however be attempting to rectify this as soon as possible.

Eidos Montreal have teased something called 'The Fall,' which ties in nicely with some domain registrations for Deus Ex: The Fall made earlier this year.

Could the studio behind Human Revolution be ready to reveal another chapter in the magnificent series?

Square Registers Deus Ex: The Fall Domains

Just a quickie: Square Enix has registered three more Deus Ex-related domain, this time for Deus Ex: The Fall. Superannuation reports that DeusExTheFall.comDeusExTheFall.net and DeusExTheFall.co.uk. are now all in Square's hands, which could mean that a new game is on the way.

Or not. The last time Square Enix filed a Deus Ex trademark, it was for the movie, and every publisher wants a piece of the transmedia pie. This could well be the precursor for a novel, ARG, iOS title, comic or practically anything else (perhaps even a rumoured Wii U port of Human Revolution), so don't hold your breath just yet. More as we hear it.

From Deus Ex To Disney: Warren Spector Reflects On Evolution, E3, and Epic Mickey

From Deus Ex To Disney: Warren Spector Reflects On Evolution, E3, and Epic Mickey

My first impression upon meeting Warren Spector for the first time is that he'd make a fantastic uncle: the sort of uncle who'd make you presents rather than buy them, and they'd always be thrilling and unique and fun. When we sit down in the cramped confines of a Gamescom business centre booth late on the Friday afternoon of the show there are no signs of the back-to-back interviews he's been doing for the last two and a half days. He's jovial, animated, and keen to discuss Epic Mickey 2.

"You have to remember that Disney approached me to do this game, and they pitched an idea with three killer pillars that still form the core of Epic Mickey today, one of which was Oswald the Lucky Rabbit comes back," he explains. "And I just thought 'Holy cow!', I mean think about this as a foundation for a story, whatever your medium, whether you're making a movie or writing an opera or a novel or making a video game: Older brother, rejected by his father in favour of the younger brother who steals the life that should have been his. Can you say Biblical? Can you say The Human Story? What better basis for a story can you get?!"

His eyes light up as he says, clearly still excited about the prospect for seeing how players deal with the underlying themes and moral quandaries of his game because, as he puts it himself, it's really all about the gamers themselves.

From Deus Ex To Disney: Warren Spector Reflects On Evolution, E3, and Epic Mickey

"Estranged brothers, separated at birth, have to reunite and form a family again. If I were making a movie, I would say 'Here's how I forge a family, what do you think?'. In a game, what I say is 'How important are friends and family to you?'. Every choice, every decision you make is going to help you answer that question for yourself. Take what you learn back into the real world, my friend! That's what I kind of like about games. The new game is about the possibility of redemption, but it's not 'Everyone is redeemable, don't you agree?', it's 'Do you think everybody is redeemable, or is there evil so profound that it's beyond redemption?'. Is the Mad Doctor legit? Is he really a hero? You have to figure that out, go. You can wrench emotions out of that, and by forcing the player to make those decisions, you can wrench emotions out of them too. No other medium can do that."

Warren Spector: "The Infinite Variety Of Games Is Under-Reported"

Junction Point lead and Deus Ex creator has hit back at suggestions that today's games industry offers less variety and innovation than around the turn of the millennium when we were privy to games such as System Shock, Thief, and, of course, Deus Ex itself. The problem, he says, is rather a certain tunnel vision from core gamers, narrow interpretations of what games should be, and a lack of reporting on the wider world of video games outside of mainstream blockbusters.

The whole E3 violence thing probably doesn't help either.

Warren Spector: "I Don't Think I Ever Stopped Making Games Like Deus Ex"

Warren Spector has once gain reiterated that although it might look like he's changed development focus in the last decade or so since his masterpiece Deus Ex, that he's really following the same processes and design philosophies that he's always done.

Asked what changed for him in between Deux Ex and Epic Mickey in a behind-closed-doors Q&A session with Dealspwn at Gamescom this year, Spector's response was relatively simple: on the one hand he doesn't see it as a huge change at all.

RANT | How "Mature Games" Are Usually Anything But These Days

I want to talk about three buzzwords today, and I'll have to ask for your indulgence as I get slightly angry about the semantics of marketing doublespeak and the damage it's doing to our industry. So many of the press releases we get these days, usually pertaining to shooters or hack and slash titles, come bearing emphatic statements supposedly to do with quality. But a trend has arisen wherein, perhaps in attempt to move away from the somewhat childish connotations associated with the word "game", titles bearing 18-certificates now have to come with a blurb that spells things out. Just in case you weren't aware, folks, these are "mature" games, with "dark" subject matter, told in a "gritty" way.

This is all bollocks, of course, because nine times out of ten, what this actually means (and this is a direct translation) is "We've filled this game with guns, violence, and maybe some boobs, you'll shoot a lot of people in the face, and everyone will speak in a gravely voice and act like The World is at stake."

RANT | How "Mature Games" Are Usually Anything But These Days

To be honest, I think  the game that first started to really make mme angry about this was Kane & Lynch 2: Dog  Days, the insinuation being that a bit of wobbly-cam and buckets of grime would make for an intense, dark, and gritty adventure. Except it didn't. It made for a nausea-inducing standard third-person shooter. There was talk of Inversion featuring a relatively gritty and mature storyline. Of course, it had about as much bearing on the action as an ant might have on a football match. The  obvious current talking point is Visceral's take on Army of Two, which is literally described as "intense, mature and grittier" by EA.

Eidos Montreal: Good Series Relaunch "Replaces The Necessity Of Having New IPs"

Eidos Montreal's general manager, Stéphane D'Astous, has suggested that rebooting an old IP with new "flavour" can lessen the need for new IP.

With D'Astous' studio having released Deus Ex: Human Revolution to critical acclaim last year, and with a Thief revamp on the way, he suggested that a familiar brand - if used in conjunction with innovation and new ideas - can lead to increased sales.
