"Deus Ex: Human Revolution" teaser trailer (part 2)

We're promised more of Deus Ex: Human Revolution at E3 2010. The teaser itself shows us nothing new. Adam Jensen's face was shown in concept art a long time ago. The mechanical augmentations (as opposed to the nanoaugmentations of Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible War) are only to be expected, given that Human Revolution's role as a prequel was announced even longer ago. The visual augmentation looks cool, but whether we'll actually see it like that (no pun intended) is yet to be seen.

At the 2010 Game Developers Conference, Eidos Montreal and Square Enix presented a teaser trailer of the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution (formerly known as Deus Ex 3). It's the second trailer of the game, following the first trailer shown in November of 2007. With the game expected to hit shelves this year, interest and debate has stirred as the third installment in the groundbreaking series looks back on the origins of Deus Ex


Ubisoft's Ill-Fated DRM Security

One of the most hotly anticipated games of 2010 is Assassin's Creed 2, the sequel to the fun but flawed action title that capitalized on the parkour fad by putting players in control of a medieval hitman who darts across the rooftops of several Middle Eastern cities. In what may be the most absurd attempt to discourage piracy yet, Ubisoft decided to implement a new Digital Rights Management program that has already rendered play for paying customers impossible once and is practically guaranteed to fail again.
