Last year, E3 attendees walking to the Staples Center saw this scene.

This year, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is getting a lion(heart)’s share of Square Enix’s marketing budget. A bunch of Deus Ex: Human Revolution ads are outside LA Live, right where Club Nokia is and across the street from the show.

Square Enix’s public relations team shared the photo over Twitter. Seems like Square Enix is billing Deus Ex: Human Revolution as their next blockbuster.

    All ugly Western games should get the Square-Enix makeover!

      No thanks. I like my heroes without excess zippers, spiky hair, and teenage angst.

        Yes but unfortunately, the lack of zippers and teen angst usually leaves us with bald space marines who swear every five seconds and at some point will be involved in an interactive sex mini game, complete with cheesy 80′s porno dialog. Both design philosophies have their clichés and neither is superior.

          Indeed. I just tend to give trite responses to trite comments.

          At any rate, I do quite like the aesthetic of the new Deus Ex game. Trenchcoats-and-sunglasses cyberpunk is pretty cliche at this point but the gold/metal colour scheme and the Renaissance influences have managed to impress me.

      I don’t agree, some people like Western RPG character designs. So I think since there is an audience for it, there should be games to suit those people. Like wise I don’t think the more Eastern character designs should be altered for the west.

    The one on the right looks photoshopped.

    But that’s right, they put up those things up quite early. I’ll head out and take a look myself.
