Ah, before anybody asks…

…yeah, I heard about that Tea Party Zombies game thing.  I got as far as looking at the zombies that you could fight, noted from the visuals/descriptions that the fine old tradition of game designers never having gotten laid in high school was apparently still in full force*, got tipped off that the gameplay sucked ass, and went to finish my Dragon Age 2 playthrough so that I can get started on the first Deus X.  Because, really, life is short.

But the years are long.

    Since Deus Ex HR is actually a prequel, it makes more plot sense to play it first, but then the “original” game may pale by comparison (at least visually, even with the high res texture packs that are out there).

  • BigGator5 says:

    Actually, I’m kind of amused by the Tea Party Zombie game. I kind of liked some of the zombies they had there.

    Not “while the evil days come not”.

  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    Moe: I jumped into HR without playing the original. I know a *lot* of people hold great love for the game (for when they played it years ago), but I’m unsure how well it holds up in the light of 2011 when you aren’t looking at it through nostalgia haze.

    There’s a Quick Look of the original over at Giant which should give you a good idea without too much spoilery stuff (I think it’s from early in tha game, maybe the 1st mission even).

  • Aruges says:

    DX1 is truly one of the greats. The graphics and animation are certainly of the era (1999-2000), but it’s solid gameplay and story wise. It is a long game though, easily 50+ hours if you’re taking your time, being thorough and reading/listening to everything. Just don’t expect to be kicking ass right from the beginning. It’s very much a stealth game until you progress far enough into the game (or exploit one of the infinite XP glitches)

    Oda, the game’s creator, has a problem with history. I’m pretty sure that’s a KKK robe on Palin. Somebody shd. tell Oda most KKKers were Democrats. I know because I grew up in the South.

    I wasn’t as outraged as a lot of folks were about that game–I viewed it sort of as political porn. What I’d really like to see is a Pelosi-Reid-Obama koolaid zombie game. Imagine the outrage you’d hear tho.
