Just saw something for the first time that I really like. When he was blind shooting that guy with the pistol at 3:35 it seemed the enemy armor actually did something. Anyone who has played metro 2033 knows what I mean, its just not for looks, it actually deflects bullets like you would assume armor does. No more pistol shots dead center to the chest full of Kevlar for a kill shot.
@firelo There is a Steam achievement for playing the entire game without killing anybody (except for bosses, which is a shame.)
What I want to know is whether you have the option to do things stealthily and without killing or injuring anyone from the very beginning of the game or you are forced to shoot and kill even for a short time in the beginning as I have understood from another demo.
@le_mulot: I don't know... they spread out, they took cover, they were pretty decent shots, they saw him through the floor vent... They look decent enough to me. The only thing I saw that was wierd was on the catwalk at 5:15 when the sniper rifle runs out of ammo, the enemy doesnt really react to him just standing there... But it still looks good enough to be fun, maybe not F.E.A.R. style, but fun still. AND... @Chriswck: There are probably way more opportunities to murder/kill than to talk or hack. For example, I'm sure trying to talk to those spec ops guys wouldn't end well. You cant very well expect +10 exp for each enemy you sneak by.
that was good. showing some combat for once instead of stealth or social. but why they showing console footage in the PC section?
@Eliianar If it's a true Deus EX prequel, which it seems to be, definitely get the PC version! Nothing against consoles, but Deus EX fits much better on PC
did anyone notice that a kill nets experience points 10 (man down) + 10 (marksmen), while a knock out nets exp 10(man down) + 20 (merciful soul) + 20 (expedient)? does that mean the game encourages players to gear towards stealthy play?
