[17:53:11] <watt> Deus Ex 3 - http://kotaku.com/gaming/trailer/deus-ex-3-teaser-326568.php
[17:53:45] <watt> The teaser doesn't really tell anything, but at least shows they're serious.
[18:22:02] <Mrrrr> Hmmm
[18:22:05] <Mrrrr> I hope so
[18:22:11] <Mrrrr> Not another DE2 :/
[18:23:03] <Mrrrr> just gotta live in hope they dont try make it too mainstream/dumbed down/hyped crap :/
[18:23:35] <watt> I didn't really play much of deus ex 2 - tried the demo and saw some gameplay, and that left a bad enough taste in my mouth to not play it
[18:24:03] <watt> Would've required quite a computer upgrade at the time too.
[18:24:08] <Mrrrr> I got about an hour in... and it wasnt going anywhere
[18:24:21] <Mrrrr> yeah, what they did the the graphics engine... lord alone knows
[18:33:21] <watt> Wikipedia : "Many graphics cards at the time, such as the Geforce MX series, did not support the Pixel Shader requirement."
[18:33:49] <Mrrrr> yeah the nV hardware as per usual was behind hte times
[18:33:59] <Mrrrr> But even the ATi stuff that did... suffered :/
[18:34:32] <Mrrrr> Just really sloppy code, cos it got better when they hacked the engine again for Thief : DS
[18:34:45] <watt> yep... and a newer card at the time would have required me to move to an entire new computer as the old one didn't support any of those cards.

[21:20:59] <Lightkey> that was just Unreal Engine 2 though, right?
[21:31:23] <Mrrrr> yeah, they they took an axe to parts of it tho
[21:31:59] <Mrrrr> And UE2.5 was the decent performance one, but 2 wasnt that slow :/
