Main Campaign - Spoiler Discussion

Postby James » Sun Jul 17, 11 11:25 am

This topic is for DXHR fans to discuss the game's main campaign and the Explosive Mission pack. Please discuss anything spoiler worthy in this thread without tags and keep it out of other topics until the embargo has been lifted.

I suggest users to avoid this thread until you've completed the game.

Feel free to discuss any spoilers about the game in this thread and this thread alone. Although I insist due to the recent leaks I do not want someone to copy and paste the entire plot down, that'll result in a ban because it's really not discussion.

Bob Page is in the first few seconds of the game, have fun.

Thought this the best place to ask. Definitely struggling on the Hangar Bay escape in China, gotta take both robots out, each takes 2 rockets, but I can only find two rockets! Dont have bot domination either :( Any advice?

I'm sure there's a security console to disable them right?

Just completed it myself. How on earth did you save Malik? C_C

As for the hangar escape, I personally just snuck around, went up the stairs and disabled them at the console. Not wasting precious ammo thank you.

FIGHT
FOR YOUR RIGHT
TO SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE HER

Literally, I sniped the heavy gunners and ran down throwing an EMP mine on arrival of the bot, then I took pot shots on all troopers.

Anyone notice the Limb clinic poster and Il Metamorphisto (SP) posters are a reference to Shodan?, and that the last boss of DXHR is basically the same as the System Shock 2 last boss fight with Shodan and her firewall?

Bit disappointed by the end, but other than that, incredible.
edit: also what happened to Megan?

edit: watched it.

Fuck you Megan, you whore.

Disappointed?, look back at DX's bittersweet short endings lol.

Also no Max, the selfish 'true neutral ending' leaves only the quest of why augs went berserk and the facility had sunk into the ocean. What's interesting is that only the Illuminati and Sinking ending can be canon because it's the only grip they have on the world.

Also yes, there will be a sequel. 100% sure they've got a lot of characters to play around with.

One of the things to note is an error pointed out by Ben, Nicolette DuClare works as a receptionist at Picus but she'll be 5 years old by that time...

Nah by ending I meant the last boss fight, I expected more talking.

What I meant about the ending is that if there wasn't a sequel then there would be a massive hole in the artic ocean that everyone in the next two games seems to have forgotten about.

I chose Sarif's ending (hurr tory boy hurr). Darrow's reasoning was completely flawed and I didn't like Taggart. The killing everone option made the next most amount of sense to me. I thought letting things develop naturally was the best way (but didn't want Jensen to die)

25 years between it and Deus Ex. I'd really enjoy it in DXHR if they still spoke about 911 (not).

Hello tory boy, same.

No, the video released was transparency.

In this thread, you misinterpret what I mean by naturally. Naturally, as in just allow freedom of progression, rather than stop augmentation.

no most people who chose that ending is a mass murderer.

Also, the last boss fight is good. Pay attention to the posters sometime, it's the exact same boss as System Shock 2.

Considering my first playthrough is non-lethal and mostly ghost/smooth operator. I've killed one person after the pre-aug intro...

I just saved mallik by using non-lethal, and this is my proudest moment!

Stun-gun, takedown, cloak and tranq rifle. Emp against the bot

Fuck yeah!

Hanger 18 is in Omega Ranch where the scientists evacuate/shuttle is for you to take you to Panchea. There's a computer to hack, hardest in the game allegedly, where the scientists were coming from with a secret.

I got chipped, knowing fully well where it came from thanks to China 1. It's mentioned at the start of the game too. Didnt expect what the new chip does though!

Eye raising moment. That's what I think her research at the start was, I dont think the Illuminati didnt want it public.

I just thought her research was to eliminate the dependence on mechanical aug drugs, neuropozyne (spelling?)

They should have called it "neuropozyme" then that would have led nicely onto DX1 lol

Yes. But nano augmentation requires a match too. Read some emails in Thailand, one of them orgasming over the future of nanoaugmentation. Nanoaugs would have ruined Page's and the Illuminati's plans.

Zyme already established.

So do we reckon that Megan was a bad guy in all this? Or just caught in the middle. Whore.

Also anyone found this thing in Hangar 18?

Yup.

The fact that it gives an achievement makes me wonder if there's something more to it.
