The above trailer for the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution started to make rounds in the worldwide gaming community two days ago. To say it got me hyped up for the game would be an understatement. The trailer is absolutely badass, transcending mere advertisement.
Of course, the game might not be of the same quality. Hopefully it will be, but the trailer is an interesting piece of cinema regardless. It sets the tone for a bleak cyberpunk future, where humans and machines are becoming one, and police apply live ammunition on civilian protesters in Detroit. The game is set in 2027. That doesn't seem terribly far away, now does it? Could these things really happen by then?
