    DXHR took me around 25 hours to beat.

    As for back on Ford; Fugitive, great movie. I love it. As for Ford in Blade Runner. The acting never felt that good to me. It's much better than those voice over monologues though. And I believe Ford hates those and wasn't all that interested in doing the voiceovers.

    I don't use the prod. I just sneak around and if I have to take someone out, it's the crowbar. I occasionally use the silent pistol.

    And I would prefer combat that requires actual skill with some game dictation and not is totally dictated by a fake skill set by the game (it doesn't work well with guns). If gun skill only affected recoil (somewhat) and reloading speeds, and not gun spread (which makes zero sense) it would be better. I'm not saying DXHR does it right, since it doesn't (lacks any sort of gun modification skill. Those augs? I noticed no difference with them. I didn't run and gun though until the end of the game because I said there is no reason for stealth from an RP standpoint for myself).

    Thankfully I've upgraded my Assault Rifle in DX1 to the point where I can mostly point and watch people die.

    Much more enjoyable now, though still annoying at times.

    And Blade Runner is boring. For one, Harrison Ford is really bad in it, and the monologues are terrible. I'm not saying it's a bad movie. I'm saying it is good but boring. There are many things about it that are great, and make it great, but it is flawed. I've seen it a few times. The end monologue from Roy is great though. But in the end it is too long for what it does and it's really like nothing happens in it. I know it's not an action movie, but it's not all that exciting in other ways either.

    I didn't get HDTP because I didn't want a half finished one. And yeah, it i will be finished "soon" as they get animations done. No one knows for certain.

    I got Nameless Mod installed but I have to get the HUD scaler to work for it.

    I'll keep an eye out on 2027.

    FPS combat in RPGs is an inherently broken concept. Certain aspects of gunplay being tied to skill is annoying. The whole, wait ten minutes for the crosshair to get small (while standing still) is the biggest problem. It is a really hard system to find a balance for.

    But my complaints also mean the AI. The AI runs around headless so you end up wasting more ammo half the time. Not to mention when you have teammate AI and enemy AI in one area, it's just a mess. You're better off not shooting unless you wanna hit a teammate. It also looks ridiculous.

    Oh, and stealth is way too easy. I want to play a hybrid character in most my games, and Human Revolution did that better though the way they give XP in that game is really broken.

    And yeah, J.C. is such an idiot. :P

    To be honest, my hate for Deus Ex was never hate. I do believe it's far from being the best game ever because it has too many flaws compared to X-Com, for example, but it is a great game. Though the non-game aspects are much better than the game aspects. The soundtrack is great.

    The truth also is, now I really got into the world behind it. Watching Blade Runner once can do that. Now, I thought Blade Runner was boring as hell, but the world and atmosphere was great. It is why I even bought DXHR at an impulse.

    The same thing happened to me with other games. After playing Dragon Age: Origins, I fell in love with the old Infinity Engine games.

    Oh, and New Vision helped make Deus Ex actually pretty to look at. :p

    Nah. Just after playing DXHR, I ended up watching some Deus Ex videos on Youtube and I just love JC's quotes. I had to experience experience them myself.

    IW shortcomings are small maps and unified ammo and some of the skill stuff being dumb. DX's shortcomings are parts of combat, bland start, whole story given away at the start, black and white story, etc. Both had bad voice acting and animations.

    IW shortcomings should be blamed on the developers, but the game shouldn't suffer because of their shortcomings. I blame Bioware for making Dragon Age II garbage, not the game itself. It sucks as a Dragon Age game, and on it's own it might be okay? I don't think that is the case with DA2 since the game itself has bigger flaws than DXIW. DXIW on it's own is a great game.

    Hi Thief,

    I do have Doom3 and the Dark Mod and have been playing Thief maps on there.

    I prefer the Thief 3 engine over the Doom3 Dark Mod version, but it's better than nothing.

    I wish The Dark Mod hadn't come out, because it seems that maps take much longer to create and a lot of people are graduating away from making maps on the Thief 2 and 3 engine. :(

    Im just pissed off that I've ever sold a version of it. I have it for PS2, but I don't have a back compatible PS3 anymore. Gonna look at more stores nearby since I KNOW I'll find one.

    Yes, the Malazan series is fun and fairly intense. Been doing a book a week so far (weekends mostly) but I'm taking a much needed break. I've read enough to get hooked and desire to reach the series ends. I'll pace myself from now on. Right now I need to pay more attention to my burgeoning collection of Steam games. Thanks a ton for the recommendation! :)

    Runs pretty good at medium details. Chugs in a few spots, but it's good enough to play.

    Game is pretty good. The atmosphere is amazing, but the enemy AI is horribly flawed at times. And the amount of damage they can take before going down is ridiculous.
