latest issue. Well, did you?

Not only did I notice,I was suprised at how many of PCG's choices I agreed with.Those folks are really on top of things.Dues Ex is one of the few games that can be played several times and with seemingly limitless paths to reach the several endings(and even a secret ending)

BTW-I wonder how much hidden stuff and paths are actually in that game?

I'm definately enjoying the game right now. I got it with my Sound Blaster X-Gamer Live! 5.1 card, at the moment, I'm going Hacker all the way (with some lockpicking and electronics skills to complement them). All I can say at the moment is "This game rox muh balls" and I'll be playing it at least twice before it gets wiped form my computer.

You got DEUS EX with your X-Gamer 5.1??!!! bitch:). Didn't get anything with my Geforce2 either :(:(

You got a GeForce2 video card? Bitch ;) Deus Ex looks like hot-carls on my V3 2000 compared to what your phat 64MB DDRam Vid Card can perform. (You did get the 64MB version, didn't you? :D )

I've tried using the console but that doesn't work. Sp either tell us how to gte it or post some screenies. If neone rep[plies in this forum :)

Yeah I noticed, and it's a well deserved award!! DE is one of the best games I've played.....now only if I could stop playing it UT style :)

And yes, after the demo you will buy this game! It's just too cool.

I've got the same problem with Deus Ex. I'm so used to storming out in the open, drawing attention to myself and shock-combo-ing everyone to death. In DE I've tried to apply all my skill points to hacker, lockpick and electronics; I even took away my default skill points in "trained pistol" so I could pump more points into hacker. So I have absolutely no weapons skills and can only do damage in close range using a pistol, or long distance with my tranquilizer darts. A plus side to being a hacker is having the ability to control the auto turrets, those are weapons enough ;)
Next time through, though, I'm giving my guy full weapons skills. I may even cheat and give him full everything :D

Deus Ex Rules the DoggHouse! Especially with the new single player patch, it runs beautifully with max settings. . .love it.

The latest patch helped multiplayer.

When they first released multiplayer it lagged so much it looked like a slide show. After trying it a couple of times I gave up.

I tried it again after the latest patch and it plays good.
Seems the same as UT on-line.

DX (DE just don't sound right) rules! I loved that fact that I could play hacker for a while, but momentarily switch to UT/Q3/HL guns blazen when I felt like it would make it easier. Usually after going in the front, I would find that concealed "back door" Oh well. I just want to say that it is neat how you're not stuck in any one area. My tactic though was to go mixed, paying what I could afford. By the end I was level 3 in Pistol, Sword (I thought it was cool and MIGHT be useful, it wasn't), electronics, computers, and lockpicking. Level 2 in almost every thing else.

I got off subject didn't I? Yes, I did notice that DX got PCG GOTY. I was really suprised, not because it wasn't good enough, but because it didn't have the pizzaz that usually comes with GOTY. But this makes me VERY happy! Finally they give an award to a game which focus' on the important stuff in a game, fun, and plot. WAY too many games miss that. Oh, and I think RTS GOTY should have gone to Homworld: Cataclysm, because it is a great game and I haven't play Red Alert 2 yet.

I would have chosen Red Alert 2 over Cataclysm. The original Homeworld was good, but I didn't like Cataclysm as much.

Oh, btw, does anybody know what the Computer Gaming World GOTY was? I missed that issue. Did they give Deus Ex the honours too?
