Deus Ex: Human Revolution Trailer Includes More Stabbing Than You'd Probably Like To See

If we had weird genetic body upgrades and strange cybernetic suits, we'd probably stab people as frequently as the protagonist of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Seeing as we're never going to get either things, we can probably type that sentence safe in the knowledge that we're not going to be surrounded by police in the next couple of hours. Stabbing aside, Deus Ex: Human Revoltuion is looking rather..
