Deus Ex: Then vs. Now

Deus Ex: Human Revolution arrives in stores next week. The original game came out in June of 2000, and what a difference 11 years makes!

Twenty-five years before the events of the first game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution tells the story of Adam Jensen, a security agent who’s critical injured and forced to undergo “Augmentation” in order to survive.

Tomb Raider Getting Gritty Reboot

How many times has a new creative director taken the reins of the Tomb Raider franchise and promised to “rescue the franchise with a bold new take”?
