The thing I tend to enjoy more than digging into a new game Â is the exquisite pre-release trailer that makes me ache for that new game. Â Any combination of actual gameplay and post-effects bullshit is acceptable, so long as it’s in the spirit of the thing. Â I can wave off the purchase at any time or hold out for a trusted review, so I’m hardly committed on the basis of Â marketing. Â Like most of you, I’ve learned to adjust my expectations to compensate for hype. Â This is why I’m able to enjoy the hype when it’s good, but it somehow doesn’t prevent me being a terrible audience member when it isn’t.
Deus Ex – which doesn’t need much beyond a release date to earn my attention – is the sort of thing I’d expect to fall in love with on its way to market. Â This material very nearly sells itself, and I worry for anyone who manages to cock it up. Â As it is, I’m not sure I’ll bother checking back before it ships.
