Deus Ex Human Revolution EP1:
You All Asked For This

Spoiler Warning


Our original plan was to do a week of the first Deus Ex, but that plan fell through because of… Uh. Well, you’ll see.

Mumbles is taking this season off. We may have another host join at the end of January. I’m still working on it. Announcements will follow.

In my defense, Deus Ex: Original Flavor looked and sounded fine on my computer, but the resulting broadcast was a horrific mess for the other hosts. I could fix it by switching DE to OpenGL mode. That would work, but only if I retained the default of 16bit color and super-low resolution. If I changed those, the game would crash. I am once again reminded of just what a fantastic Rube Golberg contraption our setup is. It’s a miracle this show works at all.

Also, if you’re anxious for a dose of Mumbles and you’re keen to find out what she thought of the original Deus Ex, then check out her article on Damnlag.

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned this before. Maybe it’s just old hat.

    Why they don’t make another system shock? :( I miss it far more than deus ex. And I love deus ex. It’s all fault of bioshock. è_é

    Why does Ruts sometimes sound like he’s talking inside a metal tube?

    Late to the party, I know, but I am enjoying this series.

    I would like to register my position on the positioning of the credits sequence: I actually prefer it at the start of each episode. It gives me time to settle down ready for more fun and hijinks, and I have to say it never feels like it’s too long.

    Having the credits at the end like this just doesn’t work for me. I’m not really sure why, it just feels like it’s getting in the way of moving on to the next episode (and yes, I know this is irrational but that’s how it is for me).
