'Deus Ex: Mankind Divided' trademarked

It's been a few months since we've heard of a Deus Ex name being reserved and ultimately not turning out to be a big-budget game, so we're about due. Square Enix has now registered a trademark for "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided," which according to the registration office covers video game software, printed material like books, and online services.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution fan film teased

Human Revolution is a Deus Ex short fan film based on the game of the same title. Machinima has released a trailer for the impending release on March 25, and it looks, well, pretty much as you'd expect Deus Ex to look in live action. Except less yellow.

Deus Ex: The Fall jacking into PC in March

Deus Ex: The Fall jacking into PC in March

Mobile spin-off Deus Ex: The Fall looked like a Deus Ex game, and swam like a Deus Ex game, but quacked like a Deus Ex game with horrible touchscreen controls. How very pleasant, then, that it's coming to PC with support for keyboard and mouse or controllers, of course, and a few extra changes t'boot.

Watch a level from Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut

Watch a level from Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut

The upcoming Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has all sorts of nifty new features. For example, it has second-screen features that Wii U owners can easily take advantage of, like quick inventory management and an always-on map. But there are gameplay tweaks as well, such as overhauled boss battles and audio commentary that you can play throughout the entire experience.

While originally announced as a Wii U exclusive port, a PS3, Xbox 360, and PC version is also in the works. You'll need SmartGlass or Vita to take advantage of the second screen on the other consoles, but the tweaked gameplay and new features should be appreciable to everyone that plays this re-release.

Hollywood sees hope for future video game movie adaptations

Hollywood sees hope for future video game movie adaptations

Let's be frank. Movie adaptations of video games are, for the most part, absolutely terrible. Yet more than ever, filmmakers remain optimistic that movies based on video games are about to turn the corner and see a jump in quality.

The "Video Games to Movies: Is the Golden Age Upon Us?" panel at Comic-Con discussed a slew of upcoming video game-to-film adaptations currently in the works. Unsurprisingly, the people involved with these forthcoming projects are confident they won't suck as much as what came before.

Deus Ex: The Fall disables guns on jailbroken devices [Update]

Updated with comment from Square Enix, who promises to remove the ban on jailbroken devices.

Deus Ex: The Fall is getting a fairly warm reception, but if you've modified your iOS device, you may want to resist buying the game. According to some early adopters, the game doesn't let you use guns if your device is jailbroken.

Deus Ex: The Fall sneaks onto iOS on Thursday

Yes, yes, I know: you wanted Deus Ex: The Fall to be a sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, not a mobile spin-off of a spin-off novel. But look, its existence probably doesn't actively harm you and it even seems quite promising, so just shut your trap, whoever it is I'm speaking to. You. You know.

Look, you know by now that you can't judge anything from a game's name, and that you shouldn't be excited by teasers or domain registrations. So here's what Deus Ex: The Fall actually is: a mobile version of the FPS-RPG, coming "soon" to iThings.

Deus Ex: Human Defiance revealed as April Fools prank

Today is the annual celebration of deceit and trickery, and we at Shacknews clearly have no time for such shenanigans. But we respect when someone does it well, so we have to tip our hat to Eidos Montreal for accidentally setting up a prank by letting word of trademarks and domain registrations for Deus Ex: Human Defiance leak so far in advance.

How boss battles have changed in Deus Ex: Human Revolution 'Director's Cut'

How boss battles have changed in Deus Ex: Human Revolution 'Director's Cut'

The upcoming "Director's Cut" version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution for Wii U promises to fix one of the weakest aspects of the original game: the boss fights. Responding to fan complaints, producer David Anfossi said that, if he could do it all over again, wouldn't remove the boss sequences, but he would do them correctly. "I'm pretty sure that now we have the knowledge to do it correctly," he said back then.

Well, that's exactly what they're planning on doing.
