We've thrown a lot of Deus Ex content at you in the last few months. I mean, it wasn't enough that we did one monster preview on the bad boy at the beginning of Feb, but at the end of Feb, we threw an even meatier one at you to feast your eyes upon... It's okay, you can thank me later for that...

Today though, our attention turns from our opinions on the game to Jean-Francois Dugas, the Lead Game Designer,  and his opinions on our questions... it's an interview, see... that's how it works.

In the first part of this two part interview, we turn our attention to the more theoretical side of the game, touching upon inspirations for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dugas' opinions on Invisible War and what they took from it, whether they considered HD remakes of the originals, the fact that it's now got a release date and so much more. It's a corker!

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the concluding part where we focus on the game itself, touching upon choice, multiple endings, accessibility and... you guessed it... so much more!

Maybe this'll get Square Enix out of their recent rut. I thought just about everything I've played that was published by Square Enix and wasn't Final Fantasy blew, and even the last Final Fantasy blew. So, yeah, here's to optimism! lol

Im really loving all the coverage you guys are doing for this game but by god, your REALLY teasing me! Ive not been this excited for a game since FFXIII and that was probably my biggest gaming let down ever. Please Square Enix, don't fail me again

Am I the only person who didn't hate Invisible War? Seriously, it did the same thing Mass Effect 2 did: vastly improved the combat and streamlined the cumbersome and anachronistic elements of Deus Ex. It was still just as free-form as the original but the combat didn't suck ass. The gunplay was so horrible in the first game that I gave up on it completely once I got the energy sword and just ran up and stabbed every enemy in the face.

@#10: Many people (myself included)disliked Mass Effect 2's "improvements", so that's probably not the best example to use.

Could you up the volume on the interviewer's questions please, or list them in text? It was a bit hard to hear him at times. Thank you!
