No, this isn’t the episode where we talk about Skyrim.  Next time, guys.

So here’s what I wanted to do:  I wanted to record a Deus Ex spoilercast.  This is a game with some great story bits, and some well-thought-out callbacks to the original game, both explicit and subtle.  I love me some game stories, so I wanted to talk about all of that.  But here’s the thing:  I haven’t finished Human Revolution yet.

“That’s okay,” I thought.  “I don’t mind having things spoiled as a rule, so I’ll just let the other guys talk about it, and I can chime in with my opinions even on the stuff I haven’t seen myself yet.  It’ll be fine.”  Well, here’s the other thing:  None of us have finished Human Revolution yet.

How does that happen?  This was easily one of the most anticipated games of the year, for all of us.  We were seriously hyped for it before it came out, and we were eager to buy it as soon as it was available.  And please don’t misunderstand, there’s lots of stuff we like about it.  In some ways it might be a better game than the original Deus Ex.  But none of us have finished it?  How does that make any sense?

So we talk about that.  And other stuff, too – you’ll hear what else we’ve been playing, you’ll get our responses to your e-mails and tweets, the usual.

Mainly, though, we’re talking about Deus Ex, and how We Never Asked For This.
