Introduction



Story
One of the most loved FPS-RPG games of all time, this classic gives you open levels and multiple paths to complete each objective. The story weaves together many different conspiracy theories in an engaging and believable way. This lengthy adventure takes our hero to cities in North America, Europe, and Asia.

The year is 2052 and the world is a dangerous and chaotic place. Terrorists operate openly - killing thousands; drugs, disease and pollution kill even more. The world's economies are close to collapse and the gap between the insanely wealthy and the desperately poor grows ever wider. Worst of all, an ages old conspiracy bent on world domination has decided that the time is right to emerge from the shadows and take control. No one believes they exist. No one but you.

Difficulty
Deus Ex has four different difficultly levels
As you can see the Hard level is potentially the most frustrating - I will be playing on Realistic to keep it challenging. It allows one-shot kills with headshots, but also requires tact and stealth because the AI can do the same to you. The beginning few episodes will be the slowest combat wise - since your reticle speed is based on skill upgrades. I'll acquire those as quickly as possible. Throughout the game most enemies will go down with one or two headshots, so this should consistently increase.

Series
I've played through it multiple times and know much of the game like the back of my hand. Any feedback is appreciated - all of my video work tends to be low-key and informative, hopefully highlighting the atmosphere and gameplay. Don't expect funny voices or hyperactivity - especially in this Deus Ex series, that would be totally contrary to the flavor of the game.

Based on Sandcastle feedback, I think the episodes I made from my first playthrough test will be acceptable (with a few tweaks), though I will be upgrading my stats quickly in future episodes for faster combat. So far in this playthrough I'm getting some really random events that are changing my play style from what I would "normally" do, which is actually making it even more entertaining for me.

Schedule
I will be posting two episodes per week, Monday and Friday evening (CST)

Feedback
I love feedback - even negative comments are appreciated, that's how I improve. This is the first LP I've posted here, but I joined specifically because I heard it's the toughest criticism you can find for LPs.
