Still reeling from the shock that was Resident Evil 6. I feel you. Maybe a steampunk version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution will cheer you up. No? How about a half-naked princess fighting monsters? Now we’re talking!
As part of the promotion for the long-awaited mega-hit Deus Ex: Human revolution, a coupon for a free On live version of Deus Ex comes packaged with every PC version of the game that is sold. However, if you’re buying from GameStop, don’t expect to receive that coupon.
But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the video game store, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution has arrived.
Arise, fair video game, and end the summer lull
Who is already sick and pale with grief
That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.
… Shakespeare I am not.
A wise man once spoke of the nature of dusk. How the night is always darkest just before dawn. Could this be what he speaks of? Could this week’s “list” of releases be the darkest night and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the light at the break of dawn? God, I hope so.
Happy August everybody! The hottest month has one again found itself necessary to grace us with its benign presence. Hell, after last week’s ho-hum list of releases, could you blame August for having to come out and remind us that video games aren’t just a bunch of hidden object adventure games, movie license games, and dancing Smurfs. That’s right August! Show’em how it’s done. What’s that? Deus Ex: Human Revolution doesn’t come out until the 23rd? Well screw you August.
If you’re wondering why this week’s release seemed so anorexic, look no further than what’s coming out in the theaters. That’s right, folks. It all ends! In deference to the almighty behemoth that is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, video game releases stayed clear of this week so we can go to movie theaters undistracted by such trivialities like video games. This explanation just feels easier to swallow than the usual “It’s Summer and therefore the video game industry don’t release anything because they think games don’t sell during this time of the year so why bother releasing anything good around this time,” nonsense. Well, at least you got football.
