Default Re: New Deus Ex and Thief games coming...

The original Deus Ex kicked ass. The second one was a dumbed down console game. I don't even consider it a sequel (played it for about 20 minutes then gave up on it). The Thief games rock! If they're going to make another game, all I can say is make it like the others, or change the freaking name! Don't be like iD software and make Quake 3 and Doom 3 and they're not even real sequals. Actually I think one in much older time periods would be funner than in a modern era. Roman era thief would be killer.. Or maybe an Egyptian one where you have to rob tombs/pyramids.

DX1 was an AMAZING game, I'd say use the HL2 source engine and make DX3, that way it won't be Doom 3 enclosed and crappy. DX1 had huge areas that you could explore and find new neat things.

I didn't like how DX2:IW was so Doom 3-esk, it was not even Deus Ex at all. I think they should pull a DALLAS on us and make DX2 a dream and then DX3 be the real thing. LoL

Anywho, I would like for Deus Ex to make a comeback, I haven't played a game that could emerse me as much as that game did. Plus it was darn hard too, I might just whip that game out on my 6800gt lol. Talk about 238479 fps! lol

V3rninate, in 6 months time there will be games with large outdoor environments using the Doom 3 engine. There is currently only ONE game using the Doom 3 engine and the NATURE of the game was to be "enclosed and crappy". People were saying the same thing when Quake 3 was released, and look at the games spawned from that engine.

Besides, DX never had really sprawling environments. The biggest was the area around the statue of liberty which wasnt exactly detailed. It was a bunch of empty space which lent nothing to the gameplay.

I've always been of the opinion that Doom 3 itself was going to be just 'ok' and that the games based on the engine were where the real kickassedness is going to be. (is that a word? If not, I'lll be the one to submit it to Webseter )

Default they're working hard at it

We've already screwed up the Tomb 'Ho franchise and tried milking Lara's massive breasts dry. We are in the process of messing up the Deus Ex franchise. Now what can we do to the Thief series? Oh yeah we can place in a modern setting just like Splinter Cell.

They should have just left it at DX1 if that is all they could do for the sequel
