Eidos Lied, But All Is Forgiven In A Well-Augmented Conspiracy

In the year 2000, conspiracies began to die down. Tensions were starting to ease after the Y2K computer crashing rumors subsided, and in a world pre-9/11 and post-Cold War, we had nothing to fear… or so it seemed.

That is, of course, until Deus Ex released and with it, a reminder to gamers far and wide that conspiracies are probably still all around us, later confirmed by real, unfortunate events that still shape our world today.

The brainchild of Warren Spector and Ion Storm, Deus Ex offered a successful blending of multiple genres executed in such a way that gamers had never seen before, instantly propelling itself into the annals of video game history as a true ‘classic’.

Then, along rolls 2003 and Deus Ex: Invisible War trots onto store shelves everywhere… needless to say, we’d much rather forget about it.

Finally, we have arrived in August 2011, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution is here to augment your life and your very way of thinking.

Once again, conspiracies abound, and the truth will change you; the question is, are you ready to experience it?

Japanese development house Platinum Games have followed up 2009’s over-the-top action outing Bayonetta with a third-person shooter that, if you can believe it, is even more of an overload on the senses. It’s the final game from legendary creator Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Devil May Cry) while associated with Platinum, as he has since left to form a new studio.

Taking place in the nearish future, Vanquish is a story of complications between the United States and their enemy, the Russians, as both nations attempt to alleviate Earth’s dwindling resources by using space stations to harvest energy from the Sun.

More drug induced mayhem . . .
