Improved Flow First you must understand that the Missing Link DLC and original game were treated as separate games in your steam library. However director cut combines them both into a single game so that it has better flow and feels more natural with the story. Generally, you could have missed the point where it was "logical" to play the DLC since its at a ...

Think of the personality types this way: Alpha = leader, making decisions, respected. Beta = follower, doing what they were told, fitting in. Omega = outcast/criminal, rebelling against the team hierarchy. The characters that I've interacted with tend to float between a couple of these, and answering with only a single type during the multiple choices in a ...

The main differences are additional cutscene footage and dialogue footage, Dev Commentary you can play during the game which can make for an interesting playthrough, full, smoothly integrated DLC, new achievements, and new ways to kill Bosses. And it is that last one I'd like to expand on because many people aren't giving all the details. They say the Boss ...

Here is a list of what will NOT lose your ghost bonus Enemies being alerted to your presence (alarmed status), but not yet hostile. This includes actions like opening doors, luring enemies away from the spot they are guarding with a distraction, killing an enemy with one fatal shot, and take downs (from behind or a concealed spot). Being seen by a camera (i....

These problems with DX:HR are due to: a bug in DX:HR, which is easy to correct via registry settings. an nVidia driver issue when using switchable graphics, which is easily corrected in the nVidia driver settings. 1. Registry Settings Two registry fixes are required. Set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Eidos\Deus Ex: HRDC\AllowJobStealing to 0. for NVIDIA ...

Yes, absolutely. This is from my personal experience. I went through the whole DLC without using (or even drawing) a single weapon, lobbing a single grenade or using a praxis kit. Yet the achievement didn't pop for me in the end. The only non-takedown kill I had was chucking a fire extinguisher at two pursuing enemies. By process of elimination, fire ...

No. There are no upsides or benefits to upgrading - at all. The purpose of this "upgrade" is to allow the Illuminati direct control over everybody with cybernetic augmentations by granting the ability to shut down a users' cybernetics remotely. Visiting the LIMB clinics to get this upgrade will allow your augmentations (including your HUD) to be disabled, ...

There are two parts of the game that have a time limit of sorts - you won't "fail" a mission by taking too long but there are lasting effects if you take too long to complete the mission objectives. In order, these are as follows; At Sarif HQ, after the prologue After the prologue, once you've arrived back at Sarif HQ post augmentation, you will be ...

Also a MAJOR difference that may interest some of you is the fact that the Directors Cut Edition is available on MAC too!

It depends. It makes the game harder because you'll be paying attention all the time to everything so that you won't be forced to start again a specific section. You'll save often. The Pacifist run will make the game about 20% harder, because you'll be forced to use the stun gun that has a limited range and the tranquillizer gun that requires a bit of ...

No - the weapons and items in Deus Ex: Human Revolution are unique - if you upgrade a weapon and then subsequently drop your weapon and find another of the same type, it will be a standard instance of the weapon with no upgrades. If you go back to where you dropped your weapon and pick it back up, the weapon that you pick up will have the same upgrades as ...

Nope. There are also no real repercussions. More info is here Some cops might try to shoot you when you leave, but other than that pretty much all you'll see is a newspaper that talks about a massacre at the police station and some people will bring it up in conversation.


7

Yes, you do get all your kit back at the end of the Missing Link. Once you've finished the DLC, Quinn has left a box with all your gear in it, next to a cryotube you use to continue your journey (relax, there is a mission-marker on the hud on top of it.) (beware, I personally did not get back my old gear. but it might be because I already had an ...

Having just completed the game and administered the lethal dose, the answer is: Yes, you can.

All computers have a valid password and all keypads have a valid keycode. You can find out what they are by reading the relevant wikia pages for passwords and keycodes.

After taking the wall breaking perk, I found myself in the situation of breaking through walls leading the lethal deaths. I noticed that the wall had a health rating, like crates do, taking a indestructible object, a barrel, I threw it against the wall multiple times until it broke, this alerted the guards but this method works without any expenditure of ...

There are four separate endings based on what you choose at the end: "It was something in the water": follow Bill Taggart's ending and cover up the truth, blaming Neuropozyne poisoning as the reason for everything that happened "Terrorists did it": follow David Sarif's request and blame Humanity Front "I want to believe": follow Hugh Darrrow's request and ...

I'd use the stun gun (for which you have low-ish ammo, sadly) in occasions I can't approach an enemy safely without alarming them. A dart gun to the head works too -- the guy will fall after a few seconds, but won't raise the alarm himself. Usually with sitting enemies, they are not looking aside, so you might be able to approach them quickly and take them ...

You should be granted the 'Pacifist' achievement, along with any difficulty related achievement at the point where you've defeated the Hyron Project encounter. This is before you make the choice at the end of the game so the choice you will make will not reflect on getting this achievement. It is worth noting that you can save the game after killing the ...

It combines DE:HR and the Missing Link DLC (PC owners of both will have 75% off on Steam), while also integrating the Missing Link into the main story rather than it being a standalone affair. The boss battles now have "stealthy" alternatives, so you don't have to play as a gun-wielding psycho all the time. The Wii U version takes advantage of the GamePad ...

No. There is no way this game, or any other, could be causing permanent damage to your PC. What is most likely happening is that your video card is overheating, or starting to fail, even though you said you replaced it recently. Hopefully it's under warranty. You should try a different game that stresses your video card; if the same problem happens, it's ...

You can holster it on the Xbox 360 by pressing Y or △ on the PlayStation 3. On the personal computer version it is H. Alternatively, you can un-equip it in the inventory screen. However this is unlikely to help as you are probably be marked hostile by the police. There are 2 other doors you can take to get out. I would recommend you take the alternate exit ...

That's a bug in DE:HR, it happened to me, too. One of the gang members has wandered off to some point where you can't reach him. I would point you to a specific website, but none of the suggestions I found helped directly. Some solutions are here in the Deus Ex wiki Or here in the Steam forum Otherwise, google for deus ex cloak and dagger bug and try out a ...

You can't remove upgrades from a weapon. You could sell it and buy back an unupgraded version, or find a new one. In short, you will have to reload or lose the upgrades.


4

Yes. It prevents the glitch from occurring.

It does not seem so. However, by using a glitch, you can skip most of it.

The jump upgrade is the easiest way to obtain it, but not the only way. A couple other ways: Using the Icarus Landing System Stacking three or more boxes to allow you to survive the fall. More items can be found down the adjacent shaft Source

In the recently released Director's Cut version of the game, you can hack a door on either side of the arena. You can find a pocket secretary to give you the code in one of the lockers near one of the doors. Once you're upstairs, look for another pad to hack near the wall. You can either burst through this wall or hack the pad to disable the lasers in the ...

You can stand there then as soon as she uncloaks and moves towards you. Hit the typhoon and she'll be stunned for a few seconds. Then shoot her in the head with a rapid fire gun. It only took me 2 hits with the typhoon this way to end the fight.
