This trailer is visually stunning but there’s a catch.
Well, Human Revolution lived up to its hype and pleased old school Deus Ex fans and new fans so this for me is a must have day one.
Do you think people new to the series should just go ahead and pre-order too? Or just vets? I've never played any of the previous games and not sure if I need to play Human Revolution to understand the story here or if it might be worth it to just start here
I think you should seriously pick up Human Revolution Directors Cut. It was really amazing. And the Mankind Divided picks up right after Human Revolution ended so you should play it to have a better experience in the story. I think Vets should buy this game because the developers certainly have stayed true to the core essense of the original game. New fans will most likely love it and enjoy the dark conspiracy illuminati theme of the game because ot feels really fresh and bold to what you are used to in games.
Not to mention that if you don't like stealth, you don't have to play stealthy. You can always go in guns blazing too. Or go for a combination of stealthy/non-lethal and shoot some of the things that move.
Awesome response DO. I am curious though, with your response to Kowsky's comment, what about going as far back as the first game? If someone was to just go straight to HR with intent to play Mankind without playing the first Deus, are they missing out?. Is this a Metal Gear type of game with huge lore?
Well if you missed out on HR entirely then yes, you'll probably be missing out of a bit of forestory and vibe, but not super-badly. I didn't play the original, but I played HR and I will be getting Mankind Divided on day One. HR was JUST that good. It had some flaws but nothing to make it avoidable. Man I got SOOO addicted to that hacking minigame in HR...after I cleared an area of enemies I'd STILL go back and hack PCs and defense nets just because that minigame was so fun.
If console is lead platform then yes. Imagine.... a game about high tech beingbmade mostly for low tech. Then again it's dx12. So idk. Just hope it's a good game and no bad ports. The last one was awsome! Using the keyboard to type in passwords! Yummy. If pc is lead them undoubtedly yes on steam!
Human Revolution was amazing on both PC and Consoles so it wont really matter to me. What matter is that i get to play the game on whatever platform i choose my friend.
I agree that it looks like a day 1 game for me as well, however it is way too soon to put down any money for a preorder. What's the release date? TBA 2016? I usually wait for a firm date before I make any decisions.
Well, considering Human Revolution was released 2011. I could guess this will either be Q4 2015 or Q1/Q2 2016.
A holiday 2015 release would be amazing! After the TW3, the only other game I'm really looking forward this year is MGS V. A solid dx12 game to end the year would really complete the year!
Um... lots of series have had good games with terrible sequels...
I can understand why someone would pre-order a new entry in an already proven franchise, but I just don't get it when people pre-order new IP's like Evolve or The Order: 1886, I always wait for the reviews on new IP's and I haven't been let down yet, since games are so expensive these days it makes sense to be more cautious about which ones are worth the money and which ones are not.
Should never pre-order, so the exclusivity trend stops... damn gamestop, practically every retailer wants to do the same thing. having four different versions of the same game with different preorder bonuses hurts the gamers.
Pre-ordering video games doesn't make sense to me. It's a risk to put down $60 on the idea that a game might be good. If you want to do that though it's your prerogative I guess.
It depends, really. Where I live, due to currency exchange, original games cost a lot. But there is this store here that is selling it for the equivalent of $10 cheaper if you pre-order. I almost always do just that so I can always get a copy and save some money. But this is really just a specific store here and I'm just sharing a story. But back on topic, if you're a veteran of the series, why not, right? You kinda know what to expect already but if you're new to the series, it's safer to wait and not getting too excited based on the trailer. Square Enix is deeply involved here and everybody knows they are among the best there is in making CGI trailers.at thevery least, wait for gameplay reveal or hopefully a demo, then pre-order if you're interested by then.
A game isn't necessarily going to be good because previous games were good. Example: Deus Ex Series. Deus Ex was a fantastic game. Invisible War is, or so I've heard, a terrible game; I cannot get IW to run properly on my machine. Human Revolution was a superb game overall, but it has a few issues here and there. Mainly boss fights were badly done. Deus Ex The Fall is utter trash. I think it's best to wait for reviews and journalists you trust to give you the OK before spending your hard earned money. I believe pre-ordering is a big contributing factor as to why many video games release in the past few years have been terrible or mediocre at best.
There's no risk.
I like to peroeder games I know i like then perload so I'm ready to go at 9pm lol but only like a few weeks befor
It should be good but we haven't seen any gameplay so is way too early to preorder.
I'd preorder a Collectors Edition if they released one, hope they do, but I don't preorder regular editions anymore. There's no need.
NO, IS TO EARLE TO EVEN THINK ABOUT BUY THIS GAME, GET OVER WITH FREAKING PRE-ORDERS, WAIT FOR REVIEWS THEN BUY FOR PRICE THAT GAME DESERVE, STOP BRAKING OUR GAMING ENTERTAINMENT MAKES DEVELOPERS PUBLISH UNFINISHED AND BROKEN GAMES BECAUSE WE DO PRE-ORDERS AND BUY GAMES BROKEN ANYWAY SO THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT FINISH AT TIME, TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE, BUY consciously.
The use of caps and a drawn 100 word sentence to emphasize your point has convinced me not to preorder. Thanks mate
To Earle http://murderpedia.org/male...
i pre ordered halo 5 2 Years before it comes out so yeah its not too early lol
With no release date or gameplay footage, yes. Granted it's probably going to be an amazing game if I were to reserve a game it will be a month or two away from release and I will be confident that I will be worth the purchase.
I would certainly wait. You gain nothing buy ordering now anyways. We need to see some gameplay.
Why do we pre order games? It's not like a physical item (console, Iphone) where they can run out. Just wait for launch and a few reviews and get on day 2.
Why would anyone pre order this game after a trailer? Stop falling for the hype...atleast wait for a product to be shown and then go gold. Wow
Considering you can cancel a pre-order, the simple answer is no.
I myself haven't pre-ordered yet, I'm waiting for the collectors edition to be anounced. I'll pre-order that instead :P
