That's what I did too. Dumb whiny old cunt.

I really really love how deep the conspiracies go! Jensen broke his mirror in the bathroom so he wanted a replacement and keeps bugging the apartment complex. They tell him the order isn't ready yet and that they're waiting for the supplier to get back to them. HOWEVER, I checked the complex's e-mail and IT TURNS OUT... THE MIRROR HAS BEEN SITTING IN THE WAREHOUSE FOR WEEKS NOW AND THE COMPLEX IS TOO LAZY TO SEND SOMEONE OVER TO GET IT!!! FUCKING BLOWN = MIND.

Shame this stuff is all so pointless. Like i spent hours going round the office building hacking everyone's doors and computers to find out who stole the drugs. Only to have the culprit come into my office and go 'HURR JENSEN I STOLED THE DURGS HELP ME'

I hack everything for the experience. I'll bust through a wall and instead of opening the door from the inside I'll run around and hack it. Or instead of using the code/password I found, I'll hack it. Easy xp.

I made a cop knock out a civilian because I used the takedown-two-guys-at-once perk and it played an animation where the cop swung at Jensen, but he pushed the second person into the punch.

Haha, yeh. I was really enjoing sleuthing around following the trail from office to office. Then he just appeared and told me he did it. I stupidly believed them at face value and didnt harass them about it once I got the blackmail tape of the other dude. Then I later hacked a computer in that augmented gangs hideout and Spoiler (highlight to read):
it said the dude was supplying them with neoproyzene. Made me sad I didnt grief them. Oh well. For playthrough 2 I guess!

Done and done. Now to find some cheats or edits so I can make myself a super soldier and massacre everyone... or just run around with silent running and cloak on the whole time.

Reload the game? Sometimes I'd load up and the HUD would be halfway up the screen and halfway off to the side. Also, ` makes your inventory thing at the bottom disappear.


On the topic of mods/scripts, fun to play with, but holy shit does it crash the game.

Also, here's a chart of DXHR's quality over the course of the game.

(edited for accuracy, so now you should be able to tell at what part it goes majorly downhill and never fully recovers)

My only real gripe so far is the energy system. Either melee should not use a full battery (or any energy) or there should be more food available. I have so much money but I cant buy any more food? What is the deal with that, is there a food shortage or something. I scour every room in every level so I havent just been missing food lying around. I have all the energy upgrades too but they dont make much difference because they dont recharge completely empty batteries.

I have played stupid amounts of this game over the last few days so dont take that as me not playing and loving it, it is just something that has been bugging me. I dont know how anyone could be using stealth regularly, it eats all your energy really quickly and you never have any food to regain it more than once or twice a level.

I agree. Adding more energy bars is a waste of a Praxis if those extra bars are a one-time-use deal. They should have variations on the faster recharging where you could choose to either recharge faster, or recharge more bars.

On the other hand, I made it through normal difficulty pretty easily without upgrading my energy bars (though I did upgrade the recharge speed) and I mainly used takedowns. I was able to find tons of energy bars, especially when scouring unconscious bodies. Did not have a problem finding those at all, and in fact had to dump some to make room for other stuff. I only wound up using bars to make room in the inventory or in an emergency when I needed to quickly takedown someone else and the bar hadn't refilled yet.

So I kinda sympathize, but not entirely

Oh and I didn't get the cloak upgrade until way later in the game when I had run out of other stuff to get, and really only used it briefly to sprint away from cover or when jumping between large gaps in cover. Maintaining stealth is totally doable without it though.

Yeh my experience is basically the same as yours. I tend to takedown every enemy in the area with the non lethal melee takedown but often I end up resorting to silenced pistolling because I dont want to wait for the energy regen. I just got cloak because I thought I might as well try it when I had spare praxis and I just dont see how it could ever be practical. Maybe I do too many melee takedowns or something.

Are you running around to each guy and taking them down in quick succession? I played it pretty slow. After much waiting and finally taking a guy down, I'd hide the body and stalk some more before going for the next one, so the energy was well charged up by then.

I was going stealth the first few levels but the battery thing pissed me off, so i just went blasting in with upgraded tracing bullet rifle, revolver and silenced 10mm.

The battery system does seem a bit weird. I've spent pretty much the whole game so far with the 1 recharging battery and not even bothering with the rest.

I think the main issue was I played every level by never getting spotted and aiming to knock out via takedown every guard. That is just way more takedowns than it was designed for. Also, it works out a lot better if you are doing that to never eat food because it is just a waste - the last battery always recharges and the others dont.

I can see how if you dont takedown every enemy and also use food wisely/tactically it would work out ok but lol @ using food tactically when I have 20 grand in my pocket. I played on hardest, not sure if that influences food drops from enemies. Most didnt have any on them.


Anyway, finished it tonight and the last area is as well designed as the rest the enemies are very generic/not creative for a Deus Ex game (or any game really). It also got a little batshit at the end which I felt was a bit too far compared to the rest of the game. I guess that graph is pretty accurate. The end stuff isnt bad, it just doesnt really gel very well with the previously established world of the game I thought. My only complaint after that is that Jensen is a complete moron in cutscenes and never reacts appropriately to the player finding things off the beaten path in the game - examples Spoiler (highlight to read):
I failed at saving Malik and found her body in the Harvesters base, nothing came of that. Not even a line from Jensen. Also, pretty much from the beginning I thought it was made more than clear through emails and not rejecting augments that Jensen was the mysterious sample DNA - seemed like a pathetic reveal by Megan way later in the game. Speaking of Megan what the fuck was the deal there. Jensen seemed pretty irate about her betraying them or something but I had found no proof of that in the game. It seemed obvious putting it together from emails that they were kidnapped to work on the patient X DNA stuff for nanotech.

Lots of words but the game was really really great. Around 40hrs to complete my first playthrough. Have seen people with less than half that and I dont feel like I actively wasted time so who knows. I maxed out every augment except the social one and the sneaking one, is that more or less than average?
