I am completely buried under a pile of games that seems to be getting bigger. Just a couple weeks ago I was lamenting having something new to play (hence all the expansion pack playthroughs) but now I feel like my backlog is getting completely out of control.

A friend of mine went to PAX East and brought back a couple of t-shirts she didn’t need/want that she gave to me, one of which was a shirt for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. My love/hate relationship with Deus Ex is well documented. Nonetheless, I was interested in Human Revolution and now I am super-hyped for it. The front of the shirt says “The Truth Will Change You” while the back has a silhouette of the main character filled with a bunch of words and phrases relating to the game or series. My favorite of these is “it’s not the end of the world but you can see it from here.”

I’m giving Deus Ex another shot. I played through all of Invisible War not that long ago, and I’ve never finished the original despite owning it for 11 years. I’m doing this my way: save the good guys, kill everyone else. I think I’m doing rather well! My inventory is constantly full but I’m also full up on medkits and bioelectic cells and ammo for the two guns that I use.

I spent seven hours playing it today and I’m about to get out of Hong Kong. I will finish this dumb game.
