Black Ops III certainly seems to have a lot in common with Deus Ex in terms of themes and tone. We pointed out the similarities in an article earlier this month, and following the release of yesterday's teaser, Deus Ex: Human Revolution developers have taken a few tongue-in-cheek digs at Treyarch for their obvious inspirations.Click here to read more...
I loved Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I mean, boss battles and that rubbish ending aside, it was a damn fine game that really delivered in terms of giving players options. We're big on that sort of thing here.
The Director's Cut reworks the offending parts of the original game to make for a somewhat smoother experience, integrating the Missing Link DLC, freeing up certain augmentations, and adding in 8 hours of developer commentary and a 45-minute documentary. Thanks mugglesquop!
Here's another highlight from today's fresh batch of Gamersgate deals, this time for the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The price has stayed fairly low for this one for some time, but this deal still manages to find a way to save you a few pounds over the next best deal.
While those who have yet to play ti should definitely consider this one, it's certainly an attractive offer if you wish to see how the Director's Cut improves over the original release, as it really does address the issues that plagued Human Revolution initially.
Square Enix are running a fat "New-vember" sale right now, discounting a whole bunch of their top properties, with some games up to 80% off.

Sony have gone big with a new PSN sale boasting discounts for over fifty games on the network, from older classics such as Tomb Raider, Crash Bandicoot, and Hitman, to newer marquee titles such as Uncharted 2, Rain, Tokyo Jungle, and God of War HD.Check out the full list after the jump >>
Here's a fun little diversion to brighten up your day. Sarif Industries are a massive global company at the forefront of cybernetic augmentations and medical advancements... in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. However, it appears that The Sun newspaper didn't get the memo, instead referencing and even picturing the fictional corporation as part of a piece on cutting-edge technology.

Mind you, this could be a publicity stunt or sponsored infomercial to foreshadow the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution - the Director's Cut later this month.
We recently learned that the Wii U will receive a Director's Cut version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which promises a raft of new features, overhauled bosses, "striking visual improvements," developer commentary and more. However, Square Enix have released some new screenshots showing some of the new GamePad functionality, including an interactive map, hacking interface and social information during dialogue.
Developer Straight Right describes Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut as the "ultimate version." You can read more details here.Click here to read more...
After Amazon spilled the beans yesterday, Square Enix have finally confirmed that the Wii U will receive a Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Apparently the port is being handled by Straight Right, who plan to deliver the "ultimate version" of the game on any platform.
And, better yet, overhaul those awful bosses.Click here to read more...
Amazon.com have revealed Deus Ex: Human Revolution for Wii U, along with box art, key features and a release date of May 17th.

More details below.Click here to read more...
Square Enix look to be continuing their obsessive crossover DLC by geting Codename 47 all kitted up like Deus Ex: HR's Adam Jensen.Click here to read more...
Siliconera reports that Agent 47 will soon be getting some new threads via DLC. Specifically: a pack that includes a smart tuxedo, a high tech outfit, gangster getup and Adam Jensen's suit. Since Adam Jensen is the protagonist of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, we can expect a fairly legendary coat and a big gun. Its usefulness as a disguise remains to be seen.
This is just one of several recent Square Enix crossovers, such as Deus Ex gear in Sleeping Dogs (not to mention Final Fantasy XIII-2's extensive DLC library). Frankly, we still don't think they're going far enough - Agent 47 would look adorable in a Kuja or Chocobo costume...
Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism Of Emily Rose) will direct the Deus Ex: Human Revolution film adaptation.Click here to read more...
With XCOM: Enemy Unknown dominating our lives, we take the opportunity this week to talk in-depth about the best way to set about making the perfect reboot. We discuss some of our favourite franchise returns, talk about a few that failed to make the cut, and highlight a few franchises we rather wish would go away for a little while to allow for a little freshness.
Some of the things that get covered this week:
...and much, much more.

Get Games are running a nifty 2 for £10 offer this weekend; specifically, you can get any two of Serious Sam 3: BFE, Red Orchestra 2 GOTY, DXHR and Dungeon Siege III Complete. I shouldn't have to tell you that Deus Ex and Serious Sam are the standout titles here, but Red Orchestra 2 is also a sensational multiplayer shooter that delivers total authenticity.
It's live! It's up! Valve have kicked off their Steam Summer Sale, and it's all GO! As well as the usual swathe of discounts and bundled bargains, Steam are running timed flash deals too. You can check those out at the links below:
To be honest, they're not the greatest discounts we've ever seen, but if you missed the Deus Ex Collection deal the other day, it's back, along with a massive Square Enix Collection deal that sees you nabbing the Hitman, Tomb Raider, Just Cause, and Deus Ex franchises (plus all relevant DLC) for under £30.
Okay, that PlayStation Plus subscription is looking pretty tasty. Starting today, Plus subscribers can freely download the full version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution on PSN and receive a 50% discount on DLC. It has replaced Virtua Fighter 5 in the Instant Game Collection lineup, though I doubt anyone will complain.
Renegade Ops will also be available in the Instant Game Collection, which is well worth a download. More details over on the EU PlayStation Blog.
Eidos Montreal head honcho Stephane D’Astous has suggested that when it comes to Thief 4 player choice is crucial, and that the team are going to be pulling out all of the stops to try and make it as good, if not better than, Deus Ex: Human Revolution.Click here to read more...
