Plenty of details on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
David Brooks: Considering Uncharted 4 is already upon us and that Dishonored 2 and Mafia III are just around the corner, this was a tough decision, but my most anticipated game for E3 2016 has to be Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The original Deus Ex is one of my all-time favourites (a Game That Changed Our Lives, in fact) and the sequel, 2011’s Human Revolution, was a top-quality entry in the series, doing more than enough to earn the Deus Ex branding.
If Mankind Divided can continue with the same quality of story-telling, graphical fidelity and depth of characters and consequences while still offering its own additions to the franchise’s backstory, then I’ll be one happy S.O.B. The super-sexy, seminal, cyber sleuthing offered by Deus Ex series has, for my money, remained the best available and the promise of more is positively (in-joke for Deus Ex fans here…) ambrosial.
An announcement of Red Red Redemption 2
Jack Bampfield: Hey now, yeah you Rockstar, please announce Red Dead 2. I mean come on, everyone has been waiting for Red Dead Redemption 2 that even a remaster of RDR wouldn’t go amiss. It’s a period that has been explored in abundance in film – think of There Will Be Blood, 3:10 to Yuma, Slow West, or the hundreds of other westerns; for video games set in the wild west, I can only really think of Red Dead Redemption.
The wild west is something I’d love to see explored more in the AAA video game scene. Red Dead Redemption 2could give Rockstar a real foothold within this period; other developers would have to one up a Rockstar game to get a real shoe in. Oh, also Red Dead Redemption was a great game so we’d all love to see a sequel. It’s high noon somewhere in the world.
