Default Just spotted Deus Ex 2 at Wal-Mart

Didn't have a price sticker up. In fact, the stack of boxes were hidden behind the other games. It's been there since yesterday, I believe.

And nope, I didn't buy it. Should have checked the price though (I could guess it would be 39 to 49). I assume it would be a good idea to wait for the price to come down (unless it's 29.95 :P) or for a patch to come out, because as it stands, the game just sounds too holey.

I still can't believe they didn't even make the simple .ini file changes before shipping the game...it's the exact same as the demo!

This is a truly sad bit-o-gaming history in the making.

I was looking forward to this day like a small child looks forward to christmas. What a huge disapointment Deus Ex 2 turned out to be. Now I feel like a kid who has just learned he had part of his weiner cut off at birth.

With how disappointing this game has turned out, it's no wonder it was hidden in the back of the shelf.

I must admit.. I was tempted for a moment.....

But then I threw myself through a display stand and came to my senses.

I think remembering that feeling is the main reason I talked my wife into not getting my son circumsized.

When did we all wander sooo far off-topic?

And from what i hear, you can't lean in the game either. But you can mantle up now. I'm still waiting for my copy to find out on my own but... Apparently, the game was already gold when we got the demo hence, they couldn't change ****e... But they're working on it (or us)

After all the negative comments on the game I was shocked to see it released and figured it would be delayed until they could address some of the issues. Maybe they're counting on the rep of Deus Ex to carry them though.
Or maybe they will just release patches to fix the problems... O_o

Fine, I'll wait for the patch before I pay for the game then.
