    Default Some new info from a Czech website

    New for me at least. Couldn't be buggered translating all of it, if anyone would like to: http://hratelne.centrum.cz/preview/c...html?id=623266

    -the world is ruled by megacorporations, more powerful than national governments. The conspiracy groups are setting these corporations against each other.

    -the black ops slaughter the research division of the corporation Adam works at. The questions who and why is behind the attack are answered relatively soon into the game, however more serious questions arise with the answers.

    -You will be regularly visiting Adam's apartment with many reminiscences of his past like photos and a diary

    -The game takes place in five well-known metropoleis, mentioned were Shanghai, Detroit and Montreal

    -Women play a large role in the game, some of them you've known for a long time, others will try to seduce or betray you, depending on your previous actions

    -Bosses are included, their difficulty also depending on your previous actions

    -The secret societies are just puppets for a shadowy figure who wants to take control over all of the market, society, and the human evolution.

    -The events of the game will lead to the establishment of UNATCO

    -The main villain is to be 'similiar' to Jensen

    -a rescue mission across the globe later in the game

    -squad based combat AI with a visually identifiable squad leader

    Mmmmm. Film Noir Femmes Fatales. Will some of them be either a) Lesbians or b) Androids?

    I like the apartment idea. It always feels good to have a safe haven, a place to call home, even if it's just temporary). It will probably be taken away from you some part later on, which also works great. Silent Hill 4, Thief: Deadly Shadows and so on.

    The memories bit again reeks of Blade Runner and GitS. Wanna bet most, if not all, those memories, photos, etc. are false?

    You really shouldn't have ventured into that ladies room, Adam.

    Was that translated into English by a native Czech speaker or was it done through a web tool like Babelfish?

    The posts by a house seem to be his own translation, the alternate version from spyhopping is machine translation.

    If anyone wants me to, I may try translating the whole articles, but be warned: I don't know czech, so my translation will be based in equal parts on similarities with polish, online dictionaries and intuition. Should be more accurate than machine translation anyway.

    Apartment + Women = Is it me or are the developers trying to develop a Bladerunner subplot in the game

    Maybe someone who at first you were supposed to kill and will hopefully have the choice of doing so thoughout the game.

    The authors of a lot of betting on the identity of the player with Adam. Therefore, not surprising that you periodically return to their own apartment, which is equipped with numerous reminiscencemi the past. Photos, notebook, computer ... You can find all the data that the successful completion of the game, although you do not need, but which will help you understand hrdinovu personality and perhaps this strange world.
    with other implants to get the skills, such as the immediate explosion of mines... So-called augumentací should be in the game 20-30, but you can be sure that each of them will have to be valid.
    I like the sound of these bits . Really pleased that there will be good focus on developing Adams character.
    It seems to suggest an aggressive defense aug and that there will be 20-30 augmentations available.

    I like that. And I hope, that the state of the apartment will be preserved between missions. So if I drop a rocket launcher on a couch, I should be able to recover it later.

    Great news, things are really looking up. Five metropolises are definitely a step up from 3 in DX1 and 2 in DX2. Shanghai, Detroit and Montreal have been confirmed, then. Wonder what the other two are. I'm guessing there will be one from South Asia/Middle-East and probably one from Eastern Europe, like Russia or something. Or maybe another American city.

    As for the women bit, I wonder if Maggie Chow will be included. I've always wanted to see more of her, as much as I think she's a double-crossing *.

    Nice. It sounds like a more interesting game than I was hoping for already.

    I hope this means that skills are back in the game (they weren't in DX2), but that weapon skills (Rifles, Pistols, etc.) won't be making a comeback.

    I'm okay with that. In DX1, weapon skills were so important, it made it hard to spend xp in anything else until far into the game.

    So I guess what I mean to say is that I want more RPG elements, but I want them to be better balanced, without dumbing it down.

    [QUOTE=pha;935817]

    Eh? Up to four upgrades per weapon? If there wasn't a translation error and it wasn't four upgrade types per weapon, it sounds a lot like a bad sign of cheapness and simplicity a la IW.

    In DX1, there was no numeric limit, therefore it was possible to upgrade, say, Mini Crossbow and use it effectively even with low Firearms skill. It allowed some variety and guile. In Invisible War, every weapon could be upgraded only twice, and without satisfying description of the upgrades' actual effect. "Increased Damage" etc. A pity that they've chosen an approach closer to IW.

    QUOTE]


    weird that you say this. i mean the two weapon upgrade thing was weak in IW for sure. but the system in DX was fun, but not realistic, barely real for the world DX was set in.

    also there WAS a limit of weapon upgrades, up to 100percent for each stat of the gun.
    which implied that you recieved a gun that was not working to full capacity, which is an odd anomoly.

    i think that is what was inportant to me, that each weapon had it's own stats, a whole litany of them. ... that was exciting. in IW, for the m,ost part, a weapon was a weapon you couldn't really see the specs on anything.

    i don't mind having a limit on the ability of the upgrades, i think it's cause the player to make harder choices and timlier choices. in DX, you just upgraded away without care.

    i'm just bored to death of... say half life. you just get a gun and you have it forever and it never changes, and your ability to use it never changes, which gets you focussed on player skill.

    i'm tired of games that are dedicated to physical skill, it takes away the craetivity of the player and forces them to learn a repeat a skill. that's sooo tedious. i couldn't even finish half life two. i love to look at it and drive the car and play the weight puzzles. but HOW LONG CAN I RUN AROUND BLOWING AWAY THE SAME ENEMY?

    Augs are sorted in four categories: combat, stealth, hacking&lockpicking and social augs

    Skills have been replaced with augs... they were in IW and most people didn't like that...
    Apparently there are people who think the best way to make
    a prequel is to contradict the thing to which it is a prequel.

    Only hacking. The rest of them was just removed without any replacement.

    OKAY, BLACK OPS PROBLEM SOLVED, THANK YOU EM!!!!

    -You will be regularly visiting Adam's apartment with many reminiscences of his past like photos and a diary
    A nice substitute for UNATCO/Tong's Base/etc., plus it looks great. Nice stuff.

    -The game takes place in five well-known metropoleis, mentioned were Shanghai, Detroit and Montreal
    Ergo, they're probably greatly detailed.

    -Women play a large role in the game, some of them you've known for a long time, others will try to seduce or betray you, depending on your previous actions
    ...JC is cold as to women. Jensen better not be some suave er.

    -Bosses are included, their difficulty also depending on your previous actions
    I like that idea.

    -The secret societies are just puppets for a shadowy figure who wants to take control over all of the market, society, and the human evolution.
    F**KING LUCIUS

    -The events of the game will lead to the establishment of UNATCO
    Beautiful. Because...
    a) Now we know it's a prequel.
    b) HELL YEAH SAM CARTER (lol, and put Shannon in there for laughs. Maybe an HR rep? )

    -The main villain is to be 'similiar' to Jensen
    . Clone.

    WAIT, if Jensen is a clone of Simons, I'm going to explode.

    -a rescue mission across the globe later in the game
    Hurm...if it's a girlfriend, game over. If it's a friend like Tong, EXCELLENCE. If it's some kind of "oracle" with the "secret" to all of the conspiracies, then the mass suicide is on.

    -squad based combat AI with a visually identifiable squad leader
    Hmm...two sides to this one:

    1- It's been done. Enough.
    2- If they go the direction of NSF-type rebellion, I am THERE.

    Augs are sorted in four categories: combat, stealth, hacking&lockpicking and social augs
    Confession here: I don't like skill systems. They're frustrating.


    This was some awesome news. Damn you, EM! Now I'm pumped!

    I think that it would be nice to have Jensen be different from J.C., I don't wan't a J.C. clone, I'd rather have a more unique character.

    Gah, I'm not pleased. I'm now expecting to see crappy "Charm" and "Pistol Damage Increase" aug. Screw that.
