    Default Let's play Deus Ex. Government sponsored petty theft conspiracy!

    Welcome to your America.

    Jumping at shadows. Bowing to anyone flashing a government badge. Selling your souls for a little security.

    And you call us the traitors!

    Those few of us who remain true patriots in the spirits of the founding fathers have suffered much these past few years.

    Called traitors for being loyal. Called terrorists for fighting the terror of the megastates. Called murderers.

    I ask you, can you kill men without souls? If not, we have done nothing worthy of scorn.

    We of the NSF will bring this nation back to greatness, even if it leaves our hands red with blood.



    So, votes came in, and I'm starting on LPing Deus Ex soon. Decided to open with a little screed from the antagonists, the NSF terrorist group.

    The best chance the counterterrorism unit UNATCO has? A cyborg superagent code name JC Denton.

    But first, they'll need a JC Denton to do it with. Madman, stone cold sniper, self sacrificing hero, explosives specialist?

    You guys decide. Vote on stats, major decisions, all that. Spoiler any major plot point mentions, if applicable.

    So, yeah. Going to start soonish. Want some input before then.
    Remember how I was wishing for the peace of oblivion a minute ago?

    Explosives and stealth spec. Plant bombs under everything and beat it before they go kaboom.

    Stealth and explosives. No lockpicks either, only the GEP gun.

    Melee and Healing.

    Because a regenerating monster running around going medieval on everyone is incredibly badass.

    Taser happy. To the EXTREEEEEME. With enough poison grenades to sinka battleship, or atleast knock its crew unconscious. Actually, scratch that, either the taser or aoe weapons only

    Also, a note that Deus Ex + chiasaur is a recipe for awesome.

    It is possible somehow... it just involves ridiculous things like grenade jumping, and standing on the exact right pixle. I never managed it.

    It's not that hard. You just need to hurt one of the troops in UNATCO HQ badly enough that he starts running, and then stack objects in the correct places so he's forced to run into and unlock the base door for you. They might not drop any keys, but they're quite capable of opening it. Somehow.

    Knock her out with the stun-gun, I think.

    The MIB agents also self-destruct upon death, but only if you don't knock them out.

    She's also laughably easy to kill if you set her on fire.

    Use the laughably fail AI* to your advantage, and kill as few mooks as possible. Use flares and flare darts to lure them away from their guard posts, and if you must kill them, go OVER-THE-TOP WITH EXPLOSIVES then dissapear. They will FEAR the BOMB-NINJA!

    Yep. You get some points and you choose what skills you're incredible at, what ones you're godlike at or, if you run out and can't spend any more points, you're just great at.

    I have to finish Deus Ex before you start this don't I. Damnit. Freaking spoilers. Any spoiler free advice? I've already blown the nonlethal cop thing, but the taser is still so much fun.

    Yeah, but there are only like two or three places in the game where swimming actually comes in handy.

    And then you can just combo Aqualung and rebreathers to achieve much the same thing. Hell, you can dispense with that and just use a really high level Regeneration and rebreather.

    That's the point.

    You're relying on something completely useless to accomplish as much as possible.
