When Square Enix purchased Eidos, many expected it to become a second line of business for the Japanese publisher
Nobody could have anticipated it would become the premium portion. But with the publisher's traditional franchises floundering a little, it's down to the likes of Deus Ex and Tomb Raider to prop up the Japanese company's finances. Thankfully they're doing a sterling job, with the..

This one's crazy
Deus Ex: Human Revolution's heavily maligned boss battles were not developed in-house at Eidos Montreal, they were instead out-sourced to minnow studio Grip Entertainment. The boss battles are recognised for having an action focus and frustrating difficulty spikes. Grip Entertainment's Paul Kruszewski admitted crafting the encounters was a difficult task.

Zumba Fitness is at the top of the UK sales charts no more
It's in second instead. The game was defeated by last week's banner release, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix's RPG fell 26,000 units short of the lifetime sales for Deus Ex: Invisible War, a number which has probably been eclipsed by the time of writing. The other new entry, 505 Games' Rugby World Cup 2011, debuted in third position..
Proving once again that any online service is susceptible to attacks, websites for Eidos and Deus Ex were hacked over night, compromising the data of just under 100,000 users. Unbelievably, of that data over 9,000 resumes were stolen. The hack was believed to have been undertaken by a rogue entity of Anonymous. As bad as the compromised data sounds, it actually gets worse. KrebsOnSecurity has..

With the fourth quarter of 2010 evaded due to the might of Call Of Duty: Black Ops, it's now time for the Q1 2011 left-overs to leap-frog each other
Deus Ex: Human Revolution's the first game to falter, dropping its first quarter launch in favour of Square Enix's new fiscal year (which runs from April 1st, 2011). Apparently the delay will allow Eidos Montreal to give the game another coating of..

Square Enix has dropped us a new trailer for next year's Deus Ex: Human Revolution
It seriously looks really, really good, demonstrating a bunch of new abilities and augmentations that the protagonist will use throughout the main campaign.

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..

The first game was a smash hit when it launched in 2000, but 2003's follow-up was less successful. Still, it's been over six years since the last game, and developers Eidos Montreal reckon it's time for a refresh. Obviously, we see it as a reboot of the franchise, we see it kind of a..
You can have no affinity with the Deus Ex franchise
No excitement for the upcoming title. Even no love for video games at all. But it's impossible to not be excited by this trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which screams high-budget from every inch of its production. The sweeping synth-lines, the wonderful opening, the big spider robot things. Oh goodness. It's coming in 2011. We're going for..
A Tweet from the official Playstation Twitter account has all but confirmed that Thief 4 is coming to the Playstation 3
The Tweet, which simply states "Oh Man" before directing to a Thief 4 placeholder page, was posted last night. The placeholder page has been around for a while, and it certainly has been updated. But the Playstation Tweet was certainly meant to have people guessing, and..
