Black Ops 3 dev shocked by Deus Ex comparison. "We always start from real tech"

It's not a huge surprise that most people took one look at the new Black Ops 3 trailer and thought 'hmm, looks a bit Deus Ex-y', what with all the augmentations and so on. It was, however, a complete revelation to multiplayer director Dan Bunting.

lol COD games always copied one or some mechanics from other games. No surprise.

Yup, first Titanfall now Deus Ex. Hopefully they modify the borrowed elements better than the same engine they continue to use.

InTheLab1176d ago

Just want to point out that Titanfall isn't original either....

Xavior_Reigns1176d ago

@ InTheLab

True but if I'm not mistaken, it was the first to bring lots of attention to those mechanics.

AceBlazer131176d ago

@Xavior_Reigns boasting a borrowed/copied idea as original doesn't look much better so yh lets just say a lot of games borrow from each other.

COD also copied Mario 64's dynamic fish AI lol

The COD devs always act like they work so hard. Type up a speech that's a few paragraphs making it seem like you're doing something and see how many millions you can fool again. I don't buy any of that talk they're saying. Sorry, I just can't. Fish AI, dogs, jet packs....

Before I actually saw the trailer for Black Ops3 I was thinking about giving it a shot. The second I saw the person jump on the wall and use a jet pack I said "nope, not this time". :/

I would of defiantly bought it if they went back to world war 2 style but sadly they stuck with the exo suit crap and all you do is get shot in the back thinking how did he get there... Oh yeah we can basically fly now.

"For the first time on this planet we're releasing CoD to next gen coonsoles PS4 and XBONE. Never before has any developer ever embarked on this great journey as we are ding now. You'll see Next gen graphics, next gen linearity, nextgen repetitiveness and obciously nextgen rehash of similar mechanics you never found in other games!"

i think you people are over thinking this. i doubt Activision even knows that Dues Ex exists. how much copies did Dues Ex HR sell ? probably 1 or 2 million then compare them to COD sales.

StonieWylder1176d ago

You do realize deus ex existed before call of duty.

bixxel1176d ago

Enough to be in sight of the planet's develoeprs.

AnotherProGamer1176d ago

I didn't know Dues Ex created the concept of human augmentation

Vegamyster1176d ago

Every game copies from one another, look at how many games started using create a class/loadout after CoD 4 popularized it.

Shocked? Own up to it. DX:HR made some waves, it's not like they were all oblivious.

Braid1176d ago

I am shocked too. Please don't compare Deus Ex to COD because Deus Ex is a god compared to run and gun military shooters. What a game Human Revolution was.

AnotherProGamer1176d ago

lol HR is a watered down game from the original

Shinuz1176d ago

Well i for one thought it looked like crysis 2.
