Miracle of Sound’s gaming inspired songs are some of my favourite things to listen and watch on YouTube. I’ve bought his records in the past and even dished out cash for a single song, that being the Borderlands 2 inspired “Breaking Down the Borders.”
Most of the time I’m just listening to the song, reading the lyrics and not paying much attention to the footage used in the music video, often cuts of official trailers and gameplay videos. But with “The Natural Heart,” the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided song, the footage kept drawing me in, engendering a response in me along with the fantastic lyrics and music.

When Square Enix first announced Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, I was so excited I went back to play Human Revolution, in one of my first few Let’s Plays on The Mental Attic’s YouTube channel, deciding to play it with a nice guy Adam Jensen and being as stealthy and non-lethal as possible.

He’ll always be a sour, inexpressive bastard but he could be a bastard with a heart of gold or a complete arsehole. Continue reading Let’s Play – Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut

As is often the case when I hear about a sequel to a game I love, I immediately thought, “I need to play HR again!” I did the same with the Overlord game when I saw a teaser image from Codemasters–which has now turned into a teaser trailer for Fellowship of Evil.

When Deus Ex Human Revolution first released, there was quite a bit of backlash because of the boss design, forcing you into straight-up shootouts when your build might not be the most Action Star oriented.
