So, in preparing for new Deus Ex I decided to play Human Rev.
So riddle me this
>Corporate Security Manager
>Nearly killed in terrorist attack
>Boss rebuilds him makes him better, faster, stronger
>Gives him the bare bones augments?
So Sarif decided to give you shit Goodwill Augments and then wants you to go out and do espionage corporate murder?
>Debug to give self all augments
>Game on Hard mode
Its explained m8.
Your body and brain can't handle the load of all of them being switched on immediately, so basically the lore reason of leveling up is your brain turning them on as it gets more used to the augments.
The base augmentations alone make you above normal humans anyway.
I believe the game throws around a line that you already have all the augments INSTALLED, but enabling them all at once would fry your brain or something similar. You'd need time getting acclimated with the base enhancements in order to properly control the rest as they unlock.
>Let's Figure this out
Figure what out?
>>Corporate Security Manager
>>Nearly killed in terrorist attack
>>Boss rebuilds him makes him better, faster, stronger
>>Gives him the bare bones augments?
All of his mechanical augments are already installed. They just aren't enabled. There's a half-assed story-based reason for this, too. But ultimately, it's a gameplay mechanic. If that's too "video gamey" for you then consider a new hobby.
Still doesn't make sense. He has all of these augments installed, but being in a coma and waking up completely augmented doesn't send him into shock? If all of them are installed his brain would still have to adjust to all of the augments in his system.
Can you stop and actually think for a second.
He wakes up and he's got the essentials like the body parts needed for a normal life. So new arm, leg, organs and the like but additional functions disabled.
The additional functions are slowly enabled as your brain is more capable of coping with a slow adjustment instead of all at once.
The experience bar is your brain adjusting.
Did anyone else get bored out of their mind while playing hr? By the time I got to china or whatever, my interest dropped dramatically. I don't know if it's the boring mundane dialogue and characters or the horrible graphics style.
One thing I always had a gripe with Deus Ex is that I never really felt like a super amazing augmented fellow like I thought it would, similar to the old Deus Ex where you took 5 hours to line up a shot like you weren't a cyborg with stabilizers or whatever.
People in physio rehab after getting injured have to take months to be acclimated to their bodies. This includes getting them to do basic exercises that are like pushing your toes towards you and even walking for a few minutes. You have to essentially relearn how to do extremely basic things like walking.
depends which one, in hong kong they made it so there's an entire stat for being a hardcore cyberware motherfucker, I was destroying people with cybertalons, in the earliar ones it's just stat boosts, and I guess you can see your metal arms in some outfits.
Nah that's one part the game fucked up on. In tabletop getting chromed is essentially the equivalent of getting full face tattoos and shit. And it's justified too since getting chromed means your life essence is decreased.
>do a 2nd playthrough of Dragonfall as a mage
>put a point in Computer Use for fluff reasons
>i'm a little confused as to how cooldowns are calculated, it feels like they're a turn longer than they should be
>halfway through the game I notice I was given a fucking Datajack
At least you can have those long ass talks about it with Racter and the cyberdoc whose name I forgot.
It's definitely a recurring theme in the vido games as well, it's just that NPCs don't react to your chrome.
Man, I hope they fix the thing with everyone freezing in place while you beat up their buddies in Mankind Divided.
And they should add some incentives to lethal takedowns while they're at it.
Oh yeah Racter talks about how his psychopathy prevents him from feeling the detriments of being chromed. Duncan also expresses his distaste for chrome as well.
And yeah, they definitely do talk about it in the games. Just not about your chrome.
Honestly if they're going to do canned animation executions, it should be done in real time not a freeze frame. Seeing everyone freeze when you pressed E or whatever was jarring.
Nah nigga, I imagined my character as a Sand-tier snobbish cunt, I couldn't go on that way.
Augments take a toll on the CNS and subsequently the human brain.
You were given Augments capable of state of the art functions and features, but in addition to the physical stress of such severe augmentation in one sitting.
You've got an empathetic augmentation doctor who lets you personally choose what augments you actually want to end up utilizing.
Have you not finished the game yet?
Adam was the first ever aug that took to it naturally; that was literally the whole point of the game and the reason Sarif went full cyborg on him. It's also the reason they named him Adam.
