What's Your Ludic Goal?

Errant Signal is one man's blog about games, wherein he plumbs the nuances of game mechanics, bemoans the state of game journalism, and also offers incredibly insightful reviews of games. He tackles the intrinsic flaws of Deus Ex: Invisible War, broaches heresy by critiquing the Half-Life series, and combats cynicism by gushing about Bastion.

Deus Ex HR, the bosses

Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the prequel to the legendary PC classic developed by a freshman team at Eidos Montreal, received universal acclaim, but one point that many people seemed to dislike were the boss battles. While they have their defenders, Rock Paper Shotgun described them as "Feeling as though they were programmed by another team, from another planet, they absolutely, unequivocally do not fit in this game." As it turns out, they actually were designed by a contractor, the AI specialists GRIP. Here's a promotional video with GRIP's president, explaining their sins.

GameStop Stops OnLive Promotion

This week marks the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a long awaited and fairly well received prequel to the PC classic Deus Ex. Included in retail PC copes is a free redemption code for the OnLive version of the game. Unless you happen to buy the game from GameStop (no stranger to shenanigans), which ordered its employees to open the boxes and remove the code coupons. Perhaps of note, GameStop acquired Spawn Labs in April to develop a potential OnLive rival.

Jesus Christ, Denton!

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Deus Ex, a revolutionary blend of first-person shooter and roleplaying game which debuted to universal critical acclaim and which has inspired much devotion among gamers. Its intro video has been reworked for the sake of comedy, it's been modded not only to "take the suck out" (and to improve the biomods) and for the plain sake of weirdness, but also to create entirely new games. Walkthroughs exist, from the helpful to the amusing to the simply insane, and even its music (such as its theme song) has inspired tributes and covers. [more inside]
