My feelings on replaying HR after finally finishing the original

2021.12.03 13:45 linkenski My feelings on replaying HR after finally finishing the original

So, right off the bat, Human Revolution is still great. I was afraid it was gonna feel overly narrow and boring in comparison but Eidos Montreal did enough to make it feel like its own thing, and pay homage to a lot of the formula of the original game.
I will say, and this was inevitable, I think now that I'm aware of the formula it follows, the story does seem more predictable than I originally thought. I've seen much worse in lieu of Star Wars Force Awakens, or a really bad entry in the Ace Attorney franchise (of which I am a mega-fan) but there are definitely moments where I'm now like "Oh okay, this is the __ moment from the first game; Human Revolution Edition". Say, going to China, and learning that the home base you're loyal to wasn't being completely upfront with you. But these facets are generic enough that it doesn't feel unoriginal, it's just good structure for a game that's about identity.
I find that Jensen's plot holds up so far, because though he can be very drab, and Deus Ex in general can be kind of wooden in character, there are some good scenes where you can tell that Jensen has a personal stake in it, while at the same time being frustrated with the lack of answers to the obvious secret hanging over his life's sudden turn to becoming augmented.
However, being just "chief of security, Sarif Industries" and not some kind of peacekeeping guy (the ex-SWAT helps a little) there are some limitations to Jensen's role and what that means for gameplay, that JC did not have to deal with. In Director's Commentary, they talk about how they had "Chaos Mode" for all locations in long parts of production, meaning you could shoot and kill anyone just like in DE1, however it just stopped being believable which would've gone against the DE spirit, because you'd be able to slaughter everyone in the LIMB clinic, and then talk to the receptionist standing behind bulletproof glass, and they said it became hard to justify narrative reasons for constantly letting Adam do what he wants, and throw in handwaves for it, so they force-holster your weapons in some hub areas.
I think a lot of that stems from the fact that you're not an agency fighting supposed terrorists, sending their augmented agents to kill targets, but you're just a security dude working for a mega-corporation in a time of peace bordering on civil unrest, who then go on a kind of revenge-conspiracy after you were hit by terrorists. The story is interesting, the Immersive Sim elements are slightly held back by it, unfortunately.
I still get a kick out of hitting F5 to quick-save and shooting random civilians in the head, or cops, though, and reloading. You can always do that in the outside hubs.
I think the level design is mostly good, and the game's features are great. I do think the hacking is used a bit too often, leading to a feeling of stagnation.
Visually, I'm surprised. I do remember the piss-filter, and never having a problem with it, but I caught myself thinking as I was playing Deus Ex, the original: "Hm, I don't think they really recaptured THIS feeling in the other game. Neither HR or MD." but to be honest, knowing the kinds of rendering techniques and lighting systems that made DE1 look as it did, in spite of intent (You heard it here first) it's actually kinda faithfully recaptured in Human Revolution. Of course I'd like to see more blues than yellow in overall theme, but they justify it by calling it "cyber-renaissance" so a sepia tone is intentional, also since it's a prequel. However, looking besides the swap from cool to warm hue, the... kind of shading the game has, when you see people walk through shadows and helicopters taking off, it's actually kind of similar to the original game's look and how sharply things were lit. It has a very special feel to it and I think HR actually has that too.
Perhaps my biggest question is how I'll feel about the ending this time. Again, it's structurally similar, and I thought DE1 had a super abrupt ending, but it was totally fitting and cemented the themes properly. That's my question then. Remember, JC was a dude who didn't start questioning what he was born to do... until he realized it and then he did. And effectively, DE1 was one big question of what JC's sense of identity was, because he was fabricated in a lab along with his brother, and he has to decide what's right for the world knowing that he is essentially... just a machine, in a sense, a tool born for the purpose of other people's wants, and that guides his ending, where in Helios' ending he fittingly says "This is what I was born to do, isn't it?" becuase it's the least human thing that accepts him, and because they're both less than ordinary or human, he feels compelled to come out of the machine, reborn as someone who chooses for himself.
Adam's ending is uh... a bit more abstract if I recall correctly. It was 3 choices that definitely reiterated the primary themes of the story as already portrayed, and there definitely is an identity-theme in the whole "Humans or Augs" conflict, but I feel with Adam so focused on Megan, it wasn't clear to me what he saw in those 3 endings, and in the epilogues he talks more as a narrator about the pontifications of each idea, but it doesn't seem super personal to him, or to the player honestly. But Endings are backed up by the plots that precede them. I'll have to play the second half and rewatch an ending to know where I stand on it, this time.
So, overall, I feel that Human Revolution is a really true to form Deus Ex title. It's very amazing to know that an entirely different company respected the original so much despite of how abysmal the AAA industry can be, even back in 2011, and it has been cool to be able to finish the classic, immediately jump into the bastard prequel, and feel that it totally feels familiar.
How did you feel about HR, compared to the original?

2021.12.03 13:45 anonymous2618x Is lowering they key bad?

I always feel like a loser when I have to lower the key. I‘m always thinking: there are females out there who can sing the song in the original key and (most of the time) i can‘t even hit the high notes in the lower key. it‘s so frustrating. how can i learn to be okay with having a deeper voice /smaller range for a female when all my favourite songs are songs written for sopranos?

2021.12.03 13:45 DazingF1 What's all this talk about adult video coins? Y'all need JesusCoin!

Church Coins: The Next Ethereal Thing Porn Coins. Pixelated un-Christian JPEG NFTs. The Satanverse. These are the "in thing" right now, but their time will pass as the hype fades. What do people use every day? Sometimes multiple times a day? Right now? What will never go away and will always have a market?
Jesus 😇😇😇 The internet may never have reached mainstream status if it wasn't for the creation of man as the image of God. Globally, the Catholic Church spends a $4.5 Trillion Dollars a year and innovation brought Jesus to people quickly, easily, and (relatively) not-anonymously through Televangelism. Crypto can take it a step further by having the Church pay even less tax on everything and nobody getting to know shit about where the money comes from or where it goes!
 
 
For perspective: Imagine if St. Peter minted, accepted, or backed a decentralized crypto back in 33AD.
JesusCoin JesusCoin is a cryptocurrency payment processor that is built on the Ethereum blockchain. The aim is to build an economic and technical infrastructure for the Catholic Church to funnel even more cash into unknown bank accounts!
 
Recently, JesusCoin partnered with JustFor.JesusFans, an evangelical entertainment industry fan platform to build JesusPay. The newly created platform will help users to make payments instantly using cryptocurrencies like BTC, LTC, ETH, etc. Some guy named Jacob from a small town in Mississipi founded JesusCoin after he repressed his sexual feelings.
Orthodoxci Orthodoxci is made up of a group of public weird looking Bishops dressed in black located in the cryptovalley of somewhere in Eastern Europe (I'm bullish on anything crypto that is from a religion I have never heard of). Founded by some dude who also wanted as much money as the Catholic Church, the Orthodoxci Group AG is building an entirely new global ecosystem for the next-generation Gucci shoe wearing Instagram Bishop industry.
 
YouthPastorChain YouthPastorChain is a cryptocurrency project built to offer secure and anonymous cringy videos that will make your kids shiver. It is the leading annoying cryptocurrency and is accepted on over 100 churches in towns with a high rate of growing agnosticism. YouthPastorChain is a digital currency built on the Ethereum blockchain. With YouthPastorChain, adult people can enjoy themselves while pretending to be cool little kids. Unlike most cryptocurrencies today that doesn’t have real-world applications, YouthPastorChain is officially accepted as a means of cringe across more than 50 states!
TL;DR - Jesus coins haven't blasted off yet. I'm betting the explosion will come soon. Don't act surprised when it hits you in the face.

2021.12.03 13:45 DadaLumLum [Beginner] I want to learn to cook, at home.

Hey all!
I'll try and keep this as brief as I can. I (25M) lived alone from 18 years old, and moved in with my girlfriend (now wife) at 22, we have 1 daughter and a son on the way. I do probably less than my fair share of cooking, but I do as much as I am currently able.
However, I'd like to do more. I thoroughly enjoy cooking. It's fantastic head-spacw whilst actually cooking, I love seeing the families smiles when I bring the food out that Dad has cooked, now I just want it to taste great! I want to start with the basics again; how to chop an onion, cook an egg, make an omelette and all those things. Obviously, I know how to do those things already but I want to learn the best way and then venture on to much more adventurous things.
We don't have a lot of kitchen space, but we have the basic essentials. An oven (no grill), 4 stove-tops, slow cooker, air fryer and a selection of sharp knives.
I don't want to break the bank, but I want my wife and kids to eat good food every day. Do you have any resources you can point me too?
Cheers!

2021.12.03 13:45 Jail_Mary Ohma was a mistake

Coming from a non biased Gigachad Lolong Silat fan, Ohma's comeback was a mistake. I still remember Ohma in the KAT. A sociopathic fighter with a clouded judgement due to insane trauma, at the time it made sense for him to be a sadistic bloodbeast. He had no personality traits and an insanely bland character when he wasn't giving a possible opponent the death stare or fighting. He was here for a good time, not for a long one. I loved every fight i saw him in, but dreaded the fact that i knew he was slowly dying. In the latest chapters, he got closure with his paternal figure, and assumed his fate. After losing to what essentially amounts to the god of the verse Kuroki OmegaChad Gensai, who knew the niko style's ins and outs by then, in a bloodied state and with half his blood vessels burst, Ohma fucking died. In one of the most masterfully well put scenes I've ever read, Yamashita Kazuo essentially explained the pass of time, how life changes and how we should rejoice that things happened, instead of mourning that it's now in the past, only to reveal Ohma's fucking corpse dead as hell. Flash Forward a few years, turns out Ohma is still alive and well somewhere, still training hard, learning a new bullshido style, even. And people say near death experience gives you a new outlook on life, lmao. Ohma is still doing the exact same thing the exact same way. And that would've worked if Ohma had any semblance of a personality, but as I've said before, Ohma is one of the blandest dudes out there, and now he doesn't even have the bloodlusted personality. He is just there, talented, for no reason in particular, with that dumbass smile, like he doesn't fight assasins on the daily. This is textbook what happens when a character's role ends but he is still in the story. Seriously, why the fuck is he still so one directional? Go to college bro, ask Kaede on a date or something. All this to say, fuck Ohma. Worst character in the series.

2021.12.03 13:45 mjobby What is the relationship between fight and flight modes?

Hi all,
I suspect i fall into fight mode. I think fight mode has saved me in many ways, but i think with it, the flight mode has taken over as things got into too much.
I think as a kid, i was flight mode, as a teen i was fight mode, and then in early 20s also fight mode, but then as i have started to open my stuff up, i am more flight, as the trauma from infancy and childhood is too much
Curious if others can relate / explain? point me in a direction
thanks all

Ontem foi oficializado que o horário de fechar o caixa é 16:50 pro 1° turno e 17:50 pro 2° turno, o problema é que forma uma fila gigante de gente, e ontem saí praticamente 17h do trabalho, tive que ir correndo pra não perder o ônibus, e eu perguntei pro meu chefe se ele me daria uma carona, e ele disse que isso era problema meu, que o horário de fechamento que está no contrato é as 17h pra mim. Cada dia que passa eu odeio mais meu chefe.
E hoje já avisei que tenho uns problemas no banco pra resolver, pois como comprei um celular novo, não consegui logar no app do banco pra poder usar pix e tal.
