My Brain Is Rather Excited Tonight

...and that's because I just grabbed a lovely copy of this from my local Gamestop:

Admittedly, I have never been a PC gamer and I missed the original Deus Ex back in 2000, but that has never stopped me from before, and it won't stop me now. After reading about what the original was and what this new game apparently is, I'm more excited than I've been most of this year, to play a new game.

I'm really into unscripted, organic gaming experiences. Don't get me wrong; I love me some Uncharted any day of the week, but the unpredictable mayhem of games like Grand Theft Auto, Just Cause 2, or Metal Gear Solid just blows my mind. If this game is everything reviewers are claiming it is (and they LOVE it), I'm certainly in for one of the defining moments of my gaming year.

In other news, I finished Infamous 2 recently, and although I haven't written up a review yet, you can expect some love coming from me. Or perhaps a better word would be "like". Maybe really like. In all honesty, Infamous 2 is not a game changer, but neither was the first one. I think about the best honor I can bestow upon the first Infamous was that it was the rare game to do super heroes and villains well. Really well, even. Infamous 2 is more of that, polished up but less new. What we are left with is not highly memorable, but a helluva lot of fun while it lasts. But more on that later.

Anyway, time to break out a beer and try out Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Happy gaming!
