As usual, many games are available with heavy discounts on Steam for the holiday season, including the original Deus Ex and its sequel Invisible War.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution has been delayed until at least April in light of parent-company Square-Enix slicing its forecasted profits by 90%.
The Local Ditch Update: The Features section is finally open and the first game is 1994′s classic: System Shock.
I’ve posted the first game in the “Features” series: System Shock. As with the new Deus Ex page, it’s a bit of a review and retrospective all wrapped into one. Go check it out.
In very-related news, the Features link at the top of the page now goes somewhere. It’s serves as in intro to the features section, but it’s really a manifesto, listing all that I’m trying to accomplish with them. Don’t worry, I’m not trying to accomplish much.
An extended version of the Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer is now available.
Prosthetic manufacturer Sarif Industries launches a new website. It’s worth digging around.

As expected, there’s been a few parts of the site that broke with the new look, most notably every page that linked to the home page. Nothing spells fun like breaking links on hundreds and hundreds of pages. Good news: that should be fixed.
More good news: the Q&A has been updated. I know, I know… sending a message to me is like a game of roulette: there’s no guarantee what’ll happen. Will your question be answered in the next few days? Months? Years? If you sent a message recently, it’s answered. If you sent one back in February, I apologize for the horrible response time, but it’s answered, too.
Activision’s I ’76 Wallpaper has been added to the site, thanks to a generous visitor.
The Deus Ex page has been updated with a new look and more info. Really, more than anything else, it’s just a ramble about my experiences with the game, plus all of the old info.
The “Features” section is going to be very similar to this – more of a review/retrospective on a particular game rather than a ton of stats, files, cheats, etc.
Lastly, the search box is up and working well. Prior to this, it was working (mostly) from the news page, but not too well anywhere else.

Deus Ex – Better looking with actual content
For those willing to pre-order (especially through Gamestop), Deus Ex: Human Revolution will contain bonus weapons (and a mission). An “Augmented Edition” of the game will also be available, containing an artbook, bonus DVD, and soundtrack.
