Normal topicDeus Ex was right! [SPOILERS]

Recently, I started a game I expect a lot from, much more than the disappointment that was BioShock... I'd come across certain quotes, and I know it's a plot about global domination by a group of "elites"... Not unlike what we see happening around us. So I'm hyped.

So far, the game has not failed to deliver. Trilateral Commission, Rockefeller and Rothschild name-dropped already in the end of the very first mission. Nice. Anyway, first things first. I started with the tutorial to learn the control and stuff... They're easy enough. I had some trouble sneaking past soldiers without being spotted, but eventually I got the hang of it. Naturally, I decided to go all Metal Gear and play a stealth, no-kill run. Given the plot, this game clearly wants to be the Western Metal Gear, anyway! I created my character and distributed points in Computer, Electronics and Environmental Training only. Who needs combat!

Image
Image

Then, a rad intro about some guy who wants to dominate the world, and the first mission. A "terrorist" group called NSF has blown up the Statue of Liberty and taken over the interior, I need to go and flush them out, catch their commander. Secondary objectives are to rescue another agent that got caught, and to talk to some informant who'll give me the key to the statue interior. It's a nice chance to showcase my "nano-augmentation." My character, J.C. Denton, and his brother Paul are the first two to receive this new technology. And we're part of UNATCO, the UN anti-terrorist coalition. Anyway, I sneak around the level, avoiding the terrorists outside. I talk to the informant dude, and he gives me the key. I get to the statue and I don't even have to use the key because I find a computer to hack, and I got the access info laying around previously in the level... I turn off the cameras and turrets and waltz inside.

Some NSF dudes are patrolling the inside, but are far too spread out. It's easy to sneak past them. I climbed some stairs and suddenly cleared the level - the commander dude just surrenders when he sees me, just like the informant said earlier. Then we begin a fascinating conversation where he talks about how the elites are oppressing the people and stuff. He says that 19 out of the last 23 presidents were in the Trilateral Commission, which is financed by the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds. Naturally, that can't be a coincidence. He talks about corporations paying ridiculously low taxes, while the workers pay really high taxes. Mentions the difference between early and mid-20th century and now (I'll soon learn that "now" is mid-21st century). Hard not to sympathise with the NSF, effectively the army of the people against their government. Then, UNATCO troops storm the building and kill everyone I'd carefully avoided harming... Way to shit on my efforts, assholes.

Image

Then I realise I'd forgotten to save the agent and load an earlier save... He's kept in a locked room and you need to go through a laser alarm first. I can't hack it yet. Fortunately, there are some ventilation shafts which I crawl through, Solid Snake-style. Eventually, I go inside through them, and sneak past the guards, until I reach one sitting on a chair who can't be snuck past. I have to knock him out with my prod, the first measure of violence I have to use in the game, and I do so. Then I do the same with his buddy patrolling nearby, so I can talk to the agent undisturbed. He's a "mechanised" agent, apparently having traded his real body parts for metal ones to be stronger and more useful to UNATCO... And now, nano-agents like myself have come to replace his kind. A sad story. He's understandably rather irritated at all this. And then I go back to the things I described in the above paragraph and complete the level.

Afterwards, I've got to be debriefed with some big shot in UNATCO, so I head into their building conveniently also lying on Liberty Island (but was locked before I cleared the mission). There, I see my office, browse my computer, meet the guy's secretary and Hermann, the guy I saved, again, along with Navarre, a chick I'll do the next mission with. There was a public terminal near them, too, where I learned lots of things about several "terrorist" organisations around the world. Unsurprisingly, they were essentially all fighting globalism. Sadly, I am apparently globalism's tool. The game's writers intent rather clear, I believe I'll be able to change that by the end of the game.

Image

Mind you, in the course of all this, I load saves many times when I get detected. PC gaming allows you not to waste too much time redoing things. Thank goodness for that. There are some slight issues with the game, for example, I can carry bodies, but it doesn't really matter because their buddies don't notice when I've knocked out a partner of theirs. Nor do they notice open doors that shouldn't be open and stuff... Will be rather easy not to be detected.

Not much to report this time, I spent a while fooling around some more in the UNATCO HQ. I learned that the situation in the US was kind of like now, but reversed. In the game, it's Congress and Senate defending the ordinary people, while the President was betraying them and siding with the globalists. Then, I entered the ladies' bathroom, and naturally there was some uptight glasses-wearing woman there who immediately threatened to report me. I responded by taking a selfie with her.

Image

There was also a "cleaning bot", i.e. the game called the iRobot before it was actually a thing... Neat. And I got to meet Jaime Reyes, my doctor, as well as Alex Jacobson, the glasses-wearing fool talking in my head during missions. I asked Reyes if I could turn the annoying "InfoLink" thing that Jacobson is talking to me through off, and he said he wasn't allowed to answer that question. OK then. Then I talked to some retired general in charge of the weaponry who gave me a stealth gun and complained about some really good insider thief stealing weapons... Maybe I'll be stopping that? No indications so far.

Image

Then, I went to report to the guy in charge, and met my brother Paul there... Apparently, we'll both participate in the next mission, which once again targets the NSF guys. I've got to take down a power station, and then Paul and his team will attack the "terrorists." Sounds simple enough. I'll work with Navarre in this mission. Meanwhile, the plague situation seems pretty bad... "Aliens did it" is one rumour that circulates.

Image

Oh, and the UNATCO HQ music is pretty rad!

I played some more today... Next mission is in New York, in the Clinton Castle (lmao), and a short boat trip took me there from Liberty Island. Upon arrival, agent Navarre briefed me shortly - I was to acquire an Ambrosia shipment (that's the vaccine against the plague). So they could give it to some politicians, no doubt. She also talked about exterminating some NSF "terrorists"... WTF is with this bloodlust? My guy asked her "Exterminate?" - he's clearly not down with bloodshed.

Image

Then, I talked to some kid who asked me for some food because he was starving. I gave him some soy food and he told me the code to a secret passage the NSF were using right near the vending machine... Somehow, UNATCO had no idea about the passage that would help spare NSF lives, but this kid did - and so did the other bums I talked to in the area. This is fishy as hell. One of the bums was an NSF sympathiser, saying they'd learnt their lesson since the Northwestern War, and were now more disciplined... Well, godspeed to them! :)

Image
Image

I had to lockpick my way to the keypad to enter the code, and I only had 1 lockpick and I needed 2... So I loaded my previous save to smash crates around Liberty Island until I found 2. I also upgraded my Lockpicking skill with the EXP I'd earned during the previous mission... With that, I could pick 25% off a lock with a single lockpick. Nice! So I have one left now... That crate-smashing was pointless. Anyway, I entered the code and proceeded through some ventilation shafts until I reached the place with the Ambrosia, guarded by a couple of NSF soldiers... Sneaking past them wasn't too hard. And apparently just locating the Ambrosia completed the objective. I didn't take it or anything (admittedly, it was a big container). But coming back couldn't be done stealthily, as there was a soldier standing at the exit... Had to engage and take him and his buddy down with tranquiliser darts. C'est la vie.

I talked to Navarre afterwards and, after scolding me for going "too soft" on the NSF, she told me there was more to the mission - terrorists had taken some people hostage at the metro and set up bombs... I got EMP grenades from her, they should help me disable the detonators... Anyway, this part will be done next time.

Normal topicDeus Ex was right! [SPOILERS]

Finally played some more. I'm almost done with this level now. First, after freeing the hostages in the metro, I talked to my brother Paul who told me how to get to our hotel room and take some goods I would find useful. I'd also have to talk to the locals to get more info on the generator's whereabouts. I did that, first in a clinic, and then in a bar. Several people gave me good information. Meanwhile, I rescued the hotel owner's daughter from some pimp. He wanted to kill her for not obeying him, and I knocked him out before he could. She gave me the password to an elevator that would lead to the generator... But otherwise wasn't that thankful. Afterwards, she went to the bar, where I also talked to her friend and a pretty cool black market pilot who told me about Area 51 and stuff. He also flew my brother Paul once in Hong Kong. He couldn't share more details because it was top secret, but he said he admired his courage. Pretty cool. A couple of UNATCO troops outside complained about Paul giving him tear gas to deal with the terrorists... They'd rather have bullets. I explained to them that those things save lives. But to them, terrorist lives weren't worth saving.

Image

Then, NSF had apparently taken hostages at the hotel, so I went there to save them... There were just 3 NSF guys, 2 with the hostages and 1 with the hotel owner. I went through the elevator shaft (lift was conveniently broken) and shot the 2 with tranquiliser darts, freeing the hostages. Then I went with the baton and smacked the last one around until I knocked him out, too. Clerk thanked me and I told him about his daughter. He lamented her going off on her own like that, acting all independent and in reality just getting herself into trouble... I felt sympathy for the guy's situation. Hopefully she comes around.

Image

Then, I went to my brother's room, picked up a bunch of useful things like lockpicks and batteries for my augmented body... Then I hacked into his computer, only to find a datacube lying right nearby telling me the password... Duh. He was just letting me read his mail, and he apparently has a girlfriend, and likes to watch old films. Neat. I think Paul is pretty cool. Then, I went out the room and climbed up some evacuation stairs... Only to find myself in the last part of the mission. Dude that talks in my head sent me a photo from above, showing the positions of the NSF guys on the rooftops. I'd have to get to where the microwave antennas are, and disrupt them with my EMP grenades or something.

Image

Then, I remembered the guy in the hotel wanted me to talk to his daughter... I went back to talk to her, but she wouldn't say anything new. Meh. Then, I decided to go through another route to the end of the level, sneaking through a building on top of which the antennas lie. Let's see how that works... Next time. I played more than I should have today, anyway.

I just cleared the level... Last section was pretty hard and I died several times until I found a neat backdoor leading to the computer terminal of the generator building. Next time I just went through it and nobody ever detected me... I had learned the password of the NSF, but not the username, so I used my hacking tool and found out the names of 2 users - Jojo, the guy who was running the prostitution operation whose pimp I smacked earlier in the level, and a generic "NSF" user. The password worked with the second one, and I shut down the cooling systems of the generator, causing it to explode.

Image

Then, a chopper came to extract me, and would you guess it, the cool pilot guy I talked to in the bar was piloting it. :) Very nice.

So, I go to the UNATCO HQ to get debriefed and a ton of shit happens... First, I see a couple of suits from FBI or something, and apparently some Washington guy called Walter Simons has come in to talk to my boss Manderley. The suits instruct me not to talk to the prisoners, saying that Simons will handle it. Of course, that's the first thing I try to do, but I can't enter their cell. Shame. Then, I find out that Navarre doesn't like me because I don't kill NSF left and right. Afterwards, I talk to the doctor who laments losing a soldier due to equipment failing, and then to the cool veteran guy who agrees with me UNATCO has become a military instead of a law enforcement organisation, and that things were more civilised before, then gives me some more weapons. Then, I read my own computer and my brother Paul has sent me an e-mail saying that they'll likely put the blame on him now, and that he has good reasons to have acted the way he did... The doctor also sent me an e-mail congratulating me on surviving the mission... He seems to like me. Good to know I've got at least one ally in UNATCO other than my brother.

Image

Then, I go to Manderley's office and listen to the end of his conversation with Simons... Simons demands my brother gets fired, and Manderley reluctantly complies. :( Apparently I'm their backup plan since my brother has "failed." Little do they know that the player cannot just blindly follow orders... Then I talk to Simons and he says the time to officially introduce himself hasn't come, and that he has a matter to attend to. I follow him downstairs to the prisoners, and enter the cell after him. He tries to interrogate one of them, but he wouldn't talk. Meanwhile, I talk to the other one who explains the NSF's rather libertarian ideals. He makes good points about why they don't trust the government - enough to take up arms against it. He says that if the government wasn't oppressing people, what we called "terrorism" wouldn't exist. Then, Simons' patience runs thin and he just pulls out a machine gun and executes the prisoners. Flashy. He then tells me I saw nothing. OK then. Next mission awaits me, I need to make one last attempt to stop NSF from flying away with the Ambrosia.

Image

Finally played some more after a while. I left the UNATCO HQ and got on the chopper. In passing, those black suits told me Simons wasn't pleased with my interference... Simons was still downstairs and they couldn't have talked to him in the meantime, but whatever! I got the message. The next mission was to stop NSF before they could transport the Ambrosia... I was back to Battery Park, and I talked to the bums around there. There, I had a heartfelt talk with an NSF veteran who offered me some clips... But since I don't use firearms, I declined. Then, I talked to some bum who's apparently one of the "mole people" who live underground... He mentioned NSF were hidden in the mole people's tunnels, so there was my lead. He wanted some password in order to give me more information, though... I didn't know it yet, but one of JC's attempts at guessing it randomly was "Anonymous". Nice!

Image

Then, I went down to the metro station, and met this Harley dude who I vaguely remember from before (JC does remember him), and, after asking for 500 credits which I had no choice but to pay, he gladly told me the mole person's password - "Underworld". Quite creative... Not. We also discussed that Lebedev might be the guy running the Ambrosia operation from the NSF side. Manderley, my boss, had apparently been trying to get him for years. Would surely earn me his respect if I got him then. Apparently, someone at UNATCO is also on Lebedev's payroll, which is interesting. Could it be my brother that's helping him? If it's Paul, then it's definitely not the money that's made such partnership possible.

Image

So I went back to the mole guy, he told me how to get down into the tunnels, which I promptly did. I encountered a hooker who looked a good deal like my colleague Navarre... Not that many character models in this game, I see. Then, I encountered a junkie who wanted to trade me a LAM (explosive device a bit like C4 in Metal Gear) for a vial of zyme or something like that (that's the going drug in the Deus Ex world, apparently). However, I'd thrown away 2 vials that I found last mission, and I don't want to steer this guy further towards his death, anyway. So I passed. Eventually, I found another mole person, who told me he'd help me if I fixed some water pipes nearby... A LAM was required to break through some door in order to get to where the pipe was. So that's why that junkie was offering to trade me one. Well, whatever. I was already carrying 4. After breaking through and fixing the pipe, the guy told me how to get further down, to the mole people's tunnels. The keypad was in the women's bathroom, under the sink. And that's where I'll be heading next.

This game just broke the awesome-meter. I was playing this mission to the end in the last couple of days, and it wasn't particularly eventful, but its ending was amazing. First, I went in the tunnels of these "mole people," only to find NSF walking armed among the common folk. My pacifist guy would have to be quite careful not to cause harm to civilians... (Of course, I do not use deadly weapons, but NSF are and someone might get caught in the crossfire.) And so I did. I lurked around undetected and talked to a few people, eventually I came across a boy who said he knew about how exactly the NSF boss was opening a secret passage. Apparently it was by moving a brick behind some crates. I found those and opened a door, storming inside, ready to fight the guy. Suddenly, he just surrendered, telling me he was really a paper pusher without much battle training, and he never thought he'd see action. Okay then. His guys around the tunnels didn't fight me from then on, I could even chat with them. He told me how to get to the NSF helibase where the Ambrosia was, and I went on.

Image

I went through some lightly-guarded tunnels, and I came out near some robots. Those bastards are way more dangerous than human opponents, if they target you, they decimate you in seconds. I disabled them wih an EMP grenade and snuck forward. I came to a helicopter, where the first Ambrosia container out of 3 was being prepared for transportation... That wouldn't happen, of course, as the UNATCO army would soon appear to seize it now that I found out its whereabouts... Two more left, one was being prepared to be shipped via boat, the other - on Lebedev (NSF big shot)'s jet.

Image

Then, I even swam around a bit. Had to upgrade my Swimming skill because there was a particularly long passage where I had to swim underwater. 625 points or so gone... Oh well. I surfaced near a boat port, and soon enough I found the second container. For the last one, I'd have to sneak through the base to the airport hangar. There were several of the pesky robots again... Had to avoid them. Eventually, I made my way inside the hangar, while the NSF guys were shooting at me... It was pretty much impossible to avoid being detected, but I managed to escape with light damage. Once I entered, Paul contacted me on the radio, explaining that he was helping the NSF... Of course, this was heavily implied already. A couple of those guys that surrendered at the mole people place even mentioned the name "Paul" in a conversation I overheard after they'd surrendered. Paul was working directly with Lebedev here.

Image
Image

Paul talked to me, explaining the situation, and that UNATCO was being used by corrupt individuals... And that the Grey Death was a man-made virus, used by its creators to control people via the Ambrosia "antidote" (that of course only they could produce), even up to the US president! He asked me to join them. In my heart, I was already on their side. The conversation continued, and Paul said some truths perfectly applicable to the real world - there was a cabal of wealthy and powerful people who wanted to create a world government... Mentioned Rockefeller a couple of times... And this kind of thing is why I named this playthrough this way! JC's naïveté was exposed, as he feebly tried to counter Paul mid-speech that UN was US's only hope of preventing another civil war... By the time Paul was done talking, JC could only listen and absorb the information silently.

Image

Then, Paul took off, and I quickly headed to the airplane to talk to his boss... The seemingly Russian man (though named "Juan" Ivanovich Lebedev instead of "Ivan" for some reason) surrendered immediately, and, just as I was getting started interrogating him, that pesky Anna Navarre appeared and tried to prevent me from finishing my conversation. She had the audacity to try to "order" me to kill the guy, even though I tried to explain to her that UNATCO policy forbids us from executing unarmed prisoners. Well, fuck off, that's not happening. She told me that I should then leave, and that she was in charge now. I tried to ignore her and kept talking to the guy, who was telling me some things about mine and Paul's origin, and who had created us...

Image

Just as things were getting interesting and some guy called Tracer Tong in Hong Kong who could crack the Ambrosia was mentioned, Navarre's patience had run thin, and she pulled out a gun and killed the guy right there, before I could react. I didn't like that one bit, and after some consideration decided to reload my save and prevent her from killing him. So I fought her, but unfortunately I couldn't just knock her out (confirmed this even after enabling cheats), I was forced to either kill her or let the guy die... So I decided to end my no-kill run right there and then and kill her. Wouldn't be a real no-kill run if I had this guy's life on my conscience. And I like him and the NSF more than the people I work for, anyway.

Image

Funnily, Navarre explodes immediately after you kill her, no doubt a safety measure to prevent an enemy from getting a hold of her modified body. She killed me a few times before I could make it, but eventually I got her. Lebedev was happy, said Paul had probably managed to convince me. He was right. I'm sticking with my brother. Then, I headed back to catch Jock's helicopter, leaving the UNATCO troops to arrest Lebedev. Met Gunther on the way, lied to him that I heard Anna was in a gunfight with Lebedev... He said he'd go investigate and aid her. Too late for that... I headed to the chooper and Jock took me to UNATCO HQ. I talked to Manderley and he was pretty sad that Paul had turned on us... I don't think this guy knows the half of it. I also lied to him about Navarre, telling him Lebedev had killed her. He told me I'd next be assigned to a mission in Hong Kong next (how convenient, I have to meet this Tong guy as Lebedev told me, anyway), and he urged me strongly to prove to his superiors that I would carry out their orders without fail, unlike my brother. Naturally, his behaviour had cast their suspicions on me as well, even if they didn't know (yet) that I'd just killed their most zealous agent...

Image

Manderley also told me they'd activated Paul's "kill switch" and that he was a goner. And the same would happen to me if I was found going down his route... I think Paul'd have done something about that in advance... And I'd get to know about it soon enough.

Image

Yesterday, I played some more, and the game keeps pleasantly surprising me. It seems that by killing Navarre I have opened a new story path. First, I ran around UNATCO HQ. I found Reyes as Manderley's secretary asked me, he was talking to Walton Simons. As if his hideous face wasn't already a dead giveaway, Simons admitted he had augmentations like me. In the talk with Reyes, they were discussing about whether batteries should always be 100% charged... Reyes said they shouldn't, that it was like normal batteries which would get weaker if they kept getting recharged while they were still almost full. Maybe a hint for my eventual showdown with Simons? We'll see... Anyway, Simons also said that UNATCO was going to be overhauled, and that's why he was here. He said he wasn't after me, but someone higher up. Probably Manderley... There's nobody else I can think of.

Image

Then I met that woman who was butthurt that I went into the ladies' bathroom getting all wet over some grunt's story about how he carried the last mission and stuff. All the while the guy who actually carried the mission was in front of them. The audacity! Well, all the more proof that people who don't like me are idiots! Then, I talked to Jacobson, the computer guy. Although he didn't outright support it, he showed understanding for my killing of Navarre. Pretty much nobody liked that bitch. He also said he still trusted Paul despite his defection, and it was reasonable to assume he had good reason to defect. I'm not sure yet, but I think I might be able to trust this guy. Then, I talked to the military vet guy who provides ammo. He's pretty cool. He told me I acted in accord with my conscience, so I shouldn't worry too much.

Image

I was ready to leave for Hong Kong, and headed to Jock's helicopter... Only for him to tell me he was taking me to New York, instead, where my brother wanted to meet me. Of course, I didn't mind (not that I had a choice). We landed on the roof of the hotel where Paul was staying, and he most certainly wasn't dead. But he seemed injured, as he was sitting on a chair and groaning. It seems the "kill switch" was no joke, but it wasn't something with immediate effect. They'd just program the nanomachines to grow infinitely, until they eventually kill you... So Paul probably IS doomed, but at least has some time left. And I'm probably doomed, too, should they find out my true intentions. Unless I find a counter-measure in the meantime.

Image
Image

Paul asked me to investigate the captured NSF HQ and send a distress signal to NSF affiliates in the world, such as Silhouette in France. He said I'd also find evidence of UNATCO corruption. I said I couldn't promise I'd send the signal. Paul said that after looking at the corruption evidence, I'd do it. So I headed to that building, and waltzed in without trouble as UNATCO troops let me in. However, when I headed to the third floor and overheard a couple of soldiers talking about erasing evidence that Simons was financing UNATCO and the one explaining to the other that Simons had no ulterior motives, and was just a "good to the bone philantropist" (lmao), they told me I shouldn't be there. Whatever you say, dudes. I entered a computer room, hacked a computer and opened a shaft in the floor on the ground floor. Then, I went down there and blew a door up in order to access another computer and open a few other doors. There was heavy security with lasers and stuff, but there were also a few handy TNT boxes laying around which I threw at the lasers and guns near them, destroying them.

Image
Image

Eventually, I reached a cupboard with a datapad inside, which had all the details about UNATCO's corruption in a report written by Paul to the NSF... By this point of the game, it wasn't the least bit surprising that UNATCO was just a tool of the globalists, of course. On top of the cupboard lied another datapad with the passwords to computers on the top of the building, used for sending satellite messages. It was clear what I had to do next. I headed up top and sent the messages undisturbed... Paul called me to confirm my success. Unfortunately, the next call was from Simons, who was angry about "what an expensive mistake I had turned out to be," and also informed me that he'd ordered the soldiers to kill me because he couldn't be arsed to wait for the kill switch to work. And, as I exit the computer round, my former comrades opened fire at me. I had no choice but to run.

Image

After taking a lot of damage, I managed to made it back to the hotel. First, I helped the hotel owner and his daughter take care of that annoying pimp that was harassing the daughter. I think that father was supposed to shoot him with the gun I gave him... That's how the conversation went. But I knocked him out with my baton first. Whatever. Then, I went up and told my brother that Jock was taking us both to Hong Kong. Unfortunately, Paul said he couldn't make the climb, and I should go alone. Right then, those black suits banged on the door, demanding my surrender. Paul said he'd hold them off, and told me to run... Also let me know the passcode to the metro door nearby. I lingered around to see Paul start fighting off a horde of black suits and UNATCO troops for a while... And they weren't killing him. Interesting. Perhaps he survives this somehow after all. I went down the emergency stairs and made a run for the metro station. Eventually, I made it, and headed to Battery Park where Jock was to be waiting for me...

Image

But Jock then called me to say UNATCO had occupied the area and it wasn't safe to land... I was on my own. Exiting the station, Gunther crossed my path with a bunch of UNATCO troops and robots, and I had the choice to surrender or try to fight. If I fought, I'd be taken down, but not game over'd. I'd end up in a cell just like if I surrendered. The game will continue from this point next time. :)

After trying to crawl around the shafts and find an alternate route to escape, and then finding out it's not possible, I ultimately decided to fight it out instead of surrendering. Of course, I was promptly overwhelmed, and woke up in a cell in what's apparently a Majestic-12 (the globalist organisation Simons really hails from) facility. In a second, a mystery voice on the radio called "Daedalus" told me he needed me to escape, and that he'd cut power to the cell for a short while. And so he did, allowing me the chance to sneak outside... A single soldier was patrolling the cell area. After taking him out with a baton I found conveniently lying around (of course, all my equipment had been taken as I was captured), and finding a datapad with the cell door's codes, I examined the other cells and found two NSF soldiers there, one of them unfortunately already dead despite the efforts of a medical bot there. Well, at least I used the bot to heal. The other NSF soldier was called Miguel, and offered to come and assist me. Sure, why not.

Image

As we stepped outside the prison area, Daedalus contacted me again and sent me a floor map of the facility. He also told me I should retrieve some sample from my brother's body... So Paul really was killed, huh. I noticed some ventilation shaft nearby, and crawled inside, navigating part of the facility undetected. I got to a Nanotech lab and took out a couple of soldiers there, then a black suit. It was hard to get Miguel to survive, so I told him to make a break for it... But later I'd return to this point so I could have him with me all the way. More fun that way.

Image
Image

I got access to several datapads with data about Simons' body, as well as some GMO dinosaur-like creatures these freaks were creating... Around the place, I'd come across their cells, and if I opened them, they'd come out and start attacking people, including me, of course. So I kept them locked in. Then, as I approached the Medical Lab where Paul's body was supposedly being kept, I came across a hilarious scene of some soldier playing hero in front of a scared secretary... The funnier part was that once battle ensued, the secretary whipped out a riot prod and tried to zap me with it! You cannot make this thing up! Pretty clever of the guys designing the game to include such a nugget.

Image
Image

Eventually, I got to the Medical Lab and found a few scientists around my brother's body... He really was dead. :( I appreciate the game for having JC hang onto hope only to have it slashed by Paul having been killed off-screen (apparently in the shooting at the hotel room after he told me to leave). It's realistic. I picked up the necessary sample and it was time to leave the facility... But not before recovering my equipment, which Daedalus was nice to tell me the location of beforehand. I snuck there and found two huge military bots patrolling... Fortunately, I could disable them once I made my way into the room... Which I did using a Multitool, although later I found out the code could be found on a computer in the previous area which I just ran through. No big deal. I knocked out the single guard and restocked nicely, then strolled out past the disabled bots. Slipping past the soldiers to reach the facility's exit was a bit hard, but I managed... Only to land in UNATCO HQ! Apparently that area which was sealed off from me was really this Majestic-12 facility! UNATCO is thoroughly corrupt. Oh, and my killswitch has apparently been activated.

Image

The music in the Majestic-12 facility is rad, too (cool part starts after 35 seconds or so):

I broke through UNATCO HQ... That was easier than I expected! First, I talked to Reyes, who is also pretty sick of UNATCO's doings himself, and promptly agreed to join me in my struggle against them. We're supposed to meet in Hong Kong next. I hope he manages to escape and make it there. Then, I talked to Jacobson, who was apparently thought by J.C. to have been Daedalus... Nope. He was astonished that somebody had managed to hack the system that he himself had installed. Apparently, he's not keen of UNATCO's shady business, either. Since I obtained the passwords of everyone from the MJ12 facility, I read their e-mails. Reyes and Jacobson seem genuine.

Image
Image

General Carter at the armory refused to join me, but let me stock up on weapons freely. He wants to stay behind and make UNATCO great again... Futile, if you ask me, but whatever. Then, I went to Manderley's office, and the guy was just chatting to hologram Walton Simons. :) Simons told me that the kill switch had left me with 23 hours of life left, and J.C. replied "We'll see about that." Manderley then stupidly attacked me, and I was forced to knock him out with the riot prod. Then, as I escaped, Gunther contacted me on the radio... Swearing revenge for Navarre's killing. Whatever, dude. Come at me. Jock was waiting outside with the helicopter and, after parting ways with my NSF buddy Miguel, off to Hong Kong we went! (How a helicopter makes it all the way from New York to Hong Kong is another story.)

The UNATCO HQ music was excellent:

Today was a short run. I had to escape the Majestic-12 base we landed in in Hong Kong. The door ahead was blocked, and Jock's weapons were locked up by security, so I had to run around and unlock them before we could proceed. Apparently, the place I needed to go was Flight Deck 1... I ran up some stairs and there it was! But, door was locked. I'd have to get the key from some soldier in the barracks below. I went to the Flight Deck 2, instead, and hacked the computer there, disabling any pesky cameras in the facility that could impede my approach.

Image

Then, I went down to the barracks, and 5 soldiers were sitting there chatting, saying one of them would be promoted if this was really me... It's me. But nobody is getting promoted. I first snuck past them and into the toilet... Only to find a lone goon there. I whacked him silly with the baton before he could damage me much with his gun. I had to save ammo, so I didn't use the tranquiliser darts. Then, I found a newspaper, and apparently the new spin of the Liberty Island attack was that I organised it, even though I actually stopped it... lmao. These globalist media shills sure are desperate, not unlike those in our own world.

Image

I'd have to fight those 5 to gain access to the key and proceed forward... So I used a couple of gas grenades, cleverly equpping myself with the Hazmat suit beforehand. They were severely incapacitated (though not completely), and, after 2-3 tries, I managed to knock them all out with the baton before they could kill me. Neat. Then, after noticing they had chick posters hanging near their beds, I looted their lockers, finding the key to Flight Deck 1 in one of them. Nice.

Image

Afterwards, I crawled around in some ventilation shafts, eventually going back to Flight Deck 2. I ran to the first one, unlocked it, and then unlocked Jock's weapons. I went down where we landed and the guy fired a couple of rockets into the door blocking my progress... Nice! A huge security robot attacked me promptly, however, but an EMP grenade took care of the bugger. A soldier and another bot stormed in my direction and I made for the shafts again. Eventually, I managed to make it through the shafts to the other end of the platform where the exit was and, after having to use 3 whole tools to disable the electricity blocking my advance, entered what's apparently an elevator. The only way I could go was down, and I found myself into a Hong Kong market, encouraged on the radio by both Jock and Daedalus to find Tracer Tong. That's where I'll continue from next time.

Normal topicDeus Ex was right! [SPOILERS]

Image

I ran around the market and ended up in a club called Lucky Money... Some Aussie chicks were sitting in front, waiting for some sucker to pay their entry fees, 40 credits in total... I was that sucker. (The worst part is that if you knock them out and loot them, they've actually got 100 credits each! Disgusting liars!) Once inside, when you talk to the blonde, you ask her to dance, and she says only if you buy her a drink. If you agree and talk to her again, you loop through the same conversation. Jeez, endless money hole for just a shitty dance, not even sex. Well, screw that. Four tattooed chicks on the side were much friendlier, and danced with me happily. At least the Aussie told me the name of the club's owner - Max Chen. Then, I talked to some dude and he told me this guy was actually running the Red Arrow Triad from inside this place. Nice! Then, some woman offered me a blonde companion named Ling, actually the sexiest female model I've encountered in the game so far... As sexy as 2000 3D graphics can be, of course. I refused, but asked her for Chen's location. She told me to ask at the bar.

Image
Image

The bar was on the second floor, and unexpectedly, I started a philosophical conversation with the guy behind the bar. JC, despite everything that's happened, is still a bit blue-pilled, as he started complaining about the "dictator" of China. The bar guy said better that than corporate rule, as is in the West. He was a wise guy, saying that a society which nurtures weakness will inevitably have that weakness float up to its leaders. Hong Kong seems like a nice place, the police armed and everywhere, but Triads still somehow warring in the shadows... Anyway, I was told the way to Chen was through a door behind the bar, which wasn't even closed. I went right in and talked to him. Apparently Tracer Tong is affiliated with the enemy Triad... I'd come to the wrong place to ask. Chen forgave my ignorance and told me to tell Luminous Path (Tong's Triad, apparently), that they must return the Dragon Fang.

Image
Image

I wandered around the bar a bit more and found a few interesting scenes, like VersaLife employees talking about sensitive matters, some Chinese middle-aged woman trying to persuade a guy whose in-game name was literally "Loser" to date her daughter... And four Russian sailors enjoying a table dance by some chick on the last floor. Nice! Anyway, I made my way out and, after exploring a bit, found some guy called Gordon Quick who was affiliated with the Luminous Path. He knew my brother, but wasn't willing to trust me before I proved myself... I was to find Maggie Chow, some woman who was responsible for the missing sword (that's what "Dragon Fang" was), and starting the war between the two Triads.

Image
Image

He told me where Chow lived, and I headed to her place. On the way, I met a cute schoolgirl (same model as Ling, different hair colour), who was talking about how her mother was telling her to stay in the neighbourhood because there were Triads fighting outside. Chow was in some big mansion, and after catching the elevator up I was not only able to get to her apartment, but I was also expected... Yeah, that isn't fishy at all. Her fat maid showed me around the place, and eventually led me to her. We talked and she seemed shocked learning that my brother had died... Told me to look at some police vault for evidence about the sword. Afterwards, I decided to snoop around the apartment, and her maid annoyingly followed me. When I started hacking the computer, the bitch whipped out a pistol and opened fire... I had no choice but to knock her out with the baton. The computer was connected to the Majestic-12 network... That said it all.

Image

I then headed to the 7th floor via a service elevator, and found some junkie woman there... She wanted some money for a fix, but I told her she's so far into withdrawal she might as well try to shake the habit. She then hated me and told me she hoped I died soon... But I remained nice and made sure she didn't die in the battle with MJ-12 soldiers that ensured after I blew up a door nearby. There were 5 of them and one was equipped with something really powerful, temporarily blinding me on impact... But I soon realised how to defeat them - the good old gas grenades. I explored their place and it was apparently connected to Chow's place. How annoying! Nevertheless, I also found where the sword was hidden, and opened the vault it was in by hacking a nearby computer. I even saw a video message for Chow from Simons. Tracer Tong called me and instructed me to take the sword and show it to the Red Arrow boss, as proof for Chow's betrayal.

Image
Image

I talked to the Luminous Path dude again, and he was happy that I was successful with my mission. He told me to get back to him to let him know about Red Arrow's response. I headed to the club again, and showed the sword to Chen. He was really shocked that Chow had betrayed him, but decided to call a truce with Luminous Path until an investigation is complete. Just as we were talking, Majestic-12 troops attacked... And they were some mech-like commandos. Fortunately, the Red Arrow guys were much more numerous, and killed them off promptly (although a few died, as well as some of the club's customers who became collateral damage. My would-be companion Ling survived, though, as did the annoying Aussie girls). As I exited the club, annoyingly, there was another commando waiting outside, but the heroic Chinese police managed to kill him. I got back to the Luminous Path dude, he was happy, and told me how to get to Tracer Tong, the entrance to the Luminous Path place was apparently right there.

Image

After running around the place a bit, I eventually met with Tracer Tong. Before that, however, some guys had told me that another American had arrived shortly before me. "Reyes made it," I thought with relief, but it was actually Jacobson, the computer guy. I found him and talked to him, he'd made it to Hong Kong with no problems. Hopefully, Reyes has, too, but I'm yet to find out. Tracer Tong managed to deactivate my killswitch, and it became clear I would use this place as a base kinda like UNATCO HQ before. I could heal myself and restock on ammo, etc. My next mission would be to infiltrate VersaLife's lab (the door to which I already encountered a couple of times on the way to that bar, but didn't have the code), and convince a manager there to assist me. Oh, and Jacobson told me that Daedalus isn't even a person, but some rogue AI or something... What? Oh, and the Tracer Tong network is called "Illuminati", with the pyramid logo and everything... Seriously now?

Image

Another hour and a half or so added today. I went to the VersaLife place, using the code I got from Tong. Surprisingly, I was pretty much welcomed there, they told me they had lots of visitors, etc. The security was allowing me to walk around without any trouble. I found the guy Tong advised me to talk to and paid him 2000 for access to the labs (which are not normally accessible to visitors). On my way there, I talked to a single guy in a huge cubicle open space (which had huge commands such as "LOYALTY" and, of course, "OBEY" flash on gigantic screens in the middle of the room) who had stayed up late at work... He let me know he wasn't allowed to leave until he was done. I promised him to give him some info on the labs on my way back.

Image

Once I stepped out of the lift leading to the labs, some dude welcomed me and let me know I should behave. These were outright called "Majestic-12 labs"... And had MJ12 troops everywhere, even a commando like those who stormed the night club. Somehow, they didn't know about this JC Denton guy, the rogue UNATCO agent who'd just cost their bosses 50 billion (and much more to come). I hacked some keypad on a giant statue, and a stairway appeared in the floor. I calmly made my way down, security not being bothered by any of this, apparently... I found some soldiers, and eventually their dormitory... These guys don't like it if you lockpick their lockers, attacked me immediately. Of course, I reloaded my save and carried on.

Image

I explored around, there were some scientists talking about scientific things in the kitchen... About making some other reptiles like the ones I saw in the lab beneath UNATCO HQ. Then, some conference about different teams refusing to share data with each other. Eventually, I even came across some secretary carrying around a huge sword... (Probably a Dragon Fang?) Anyway, after wandering around, eventually I found some computer that said "AMBROSIA" on it. I hacked it, and it gave me the option to upload the Dragon Fang data. OK then. Tracer Tong immediately called me on the radio to congratulate me on a job well done, and asked me to go to the temple near the Luminous Path base where the two Triads were to make their peace.

Image

...Problem was, an alarm activated shortly after, and everyone started attacking me... (Even the guy I bribed to make my way to the labs zapped me once with a riot prod. -_-) I made a run for it, and escaped without suffering too much damage. I went to the temple and the two Triad representatives were happy to be able to work with each other from now on, they made some vows for brighter future and what not... The funny part was the grumpy monk after they were done. He rambled about how the Buddha would look down on such worship of worldly possessions (in this case, weapons). The Triad representatives invited me for drinks at the Lucky Money, and I promptly went. The two Dragon Heads were at the bar, and each offered me wine as thanks... I'd have preferred some MedKits (I noticed I'd run out of them during the previous play session...), but thanks anyway.

Image

Then, I headed to Tong and he made my next goal clear - to go back to the VersaLife labs, but via a secret passage, and bring him back some Ambrosia samples. There was also apparently an important VersaLife employee floating around the canals... I'd have to find his body and recover some important data - a secondary goal. These will wait for the next play session.

Image

Oh, and the VersaLife background music is really rad! I am astonished with how good this soundtrack is.

After the holiday, finally played some more yesterday. I swam around trying to find that guy who drowned that Tong told me about the last time, but wasted some time without much luck. I found a shaft which led to a place with lots of pipes, but couldn't swim through the pipes... Eventually, I retreated and decided to go for the next mission. I went to the Canal Road, now completely empty, and found a door at the end. After entering the code Tong gave me, I found myself in the VersaLife facility again, conveniently already in the 2nd level labs. Sweet! A commando and a big robot were waiting for me, but I managed to find a datapad with another code, and closed some doors on them by entering it, allowing me to go around them via a tunnel.

Image

Daedalus meanwhile told me that I needed to destroy one of the two machines in the world which produce the Grey Death... So it's a "nanomechanical virus," huh... Not exactly surprising. I hacked a computer and opened a door underground where I'd proceed to find the virus schematics Tong needed. I also read some more mail... Simons was writing to Chow giving her authority over MJ12 in Hong Kong and stuff... Orders to MJ12 troops to kill me on sight... Hermann being given authority to deal with me... Nothing we hadn't figured out by this point in the story.

Image

Afterwards, I found myself in a corridor patrolled by a single commando, at the end of which was a woman scientist in front of a computer. Doubtless, I had to hack that one. I circled around the commando, stun-gunned the woman down, and hacked, uploading the schematics Tong needed for him, and then making a break for it. He told me to report back to him in the base... But it wouldn't let me out until I destroyed the Grey Death machine, too. My exit through the facility was sealed.

Image

So, back I went, and around the commando again, into a circular corridor, which led me to a gigantic room - particularly in the vertical dimension. After ignoring some augmentation canisters (apparently I'm also doing a no-augmentation run, I've gone too far to stop now), I went down a long ladder only to be greeted by Maggie Chow... After exchanging pleasantries, she pulled out a Dragon Fang and kept swinging at me, but I dodged and eventually smacked her down with the baton. Then, I entered the code Daedalus gave me into a console and bam, the Grey Death machine started exploding. Unfortunately, at the same time, some scorpion-like creatures started blasting me with electricity... No doubt VersaLife GMO creations. I jumped down to safety into some radioactive water... Just an average day for Mr Denton. Of course, I activated a Hazard suit, and then swam to my escape, despite a crocodile-like mutant trying to kill me on the way.

Image

And then, Tong started talking about The Illuminati... Strange, considering how his network is called. Am I working with someone who will double-cross me again?... On the way back, I tried to look for the drowned man again. I found a ship and talked to a lady there, she told me some Europeans had been diving, searching for loot... Have to find the spot. That will wait until next time, and then I'll meet with Tong for a debriefing.

Put in another hour or so, but most of it was spent exploring for those ruins... Eventually, I just gave up and saw how you get there on youtube - unnecessarily convoluted, and for small reward, too. Not doing it. Then, I talked to some people in the Old China bar... Some guy knew my brother and mistook me for him, but quickly realised his mistake. I managed to convince him to talk, and he offered to sell me some stuff... Nothing that interesting. VersaLife blueprints would've been somewhat handy before the missions, but not anymore. I didn't have the 2000 necessary to buy them, anyway. Then, I went to Jock's apartment, and found a lockpick there, as well as an explanation as to how the helicopter travels from New York to Hong Kong... Neat stuff they've got in 2052.

Image

Finally, I headed to Tong... And found Jaime Reyes there! He'd successfully escaped. Perhaps the game's a bit soft on these supporting characters... Simons had set his sights on him. Anyway, we chatted, and he brought me an augmentation canister... Thanks, but I'm not using those. There's a bug where if you're full, the canister drops, and he gives you one after you're empty anyway. Repeat, and you can get infinite canisters... lol. Finally, I talked to Tong, who told me about the Illuminati. Apparently, MJ12 are a group that splintered from them. They were too radical or something, and the Illuminati were terrified of them... lol. Probably the trans-human atrocities. But come on, if these guys get to be Illuminati in the first place, they would have shun morality completely, anyway. Whatever. Going to New York with Jock, where I should meet this Filben guy who'll introduce me to an Illuminati dude.

Finally got back to playing yesterday. I was off to New York again, and, apparently, martial law had been declared... Cops would open fire on me on sight. Pretty disheartening. I had to sneak by a few, and soon enough I entered the bar where Harley Filben was. I talked to him and he revealed he'd been working for NSF and the Illuminati all along... Something we'd known already - after all, I was here to get him to introduce me to Dowd, a former Illuminati big-wig. The Illuminati are supposed to be the good guys, now? Filben told me he'd set me up a meeting with Dowd near the old warehouse. And then let me know that the sleazy reporter I'd encountered several times so far, Joe Greene, had been working for UNATCO... He also asked me to kill him, but I don't think I want to do that.

Image

Then, I talked to a soldier from a submarine base who complained about FEMA basically kicking them out from the base and taking over... Simons up to his usual tricks. Little doubt that it'd be the place where the virus shipment would be unloaded. He said that he was here to see Sandra Renton, who was sitting on a table nearby. She's the daughter of the hotel's owner, the one I gave a gun to protect himself a while ago. Then I talked to Sandra herself, she seemed to have come a long way since her prostitution days... And she told me I could trust the soldier, he was an old schoolmate of hers. Also, Greene was apparently sniffing around for me earlier... Game's really trying to get me to kill the rat.

Image

I left the bar and ended up in the Free Clinic... It was quite deserted, only a couple of bums were complaining about how bad martial law was, and how it was supposed to be temporary, but it doesn't seem like it at all. Then, I came across Greene... There are options to accuse him as a spy of UNATCO, or just to hear his side of the story. If the former, he flat-out admits to it, and starts running (poor sod doesn't even have a gun). If you buy his story and let him know about Dowd, I suppose that makes things harder later, but I didn't do it. I reloaded my save and simply ignored him, not starting a conversation at all. Hacking the clinic's computer, I could see a message by Simons declaring there was no cure for the Grey Death, and that only FEMA-approved messages should be trusted, not rumours... Right.

Image

Then, I went out and snuck past a couple of cops, approaching the warehouse. Hidden between some walls and a burning barrel was Stanton Dowd, who let me know that, expectedly, it was the submarine base where MJ12 would unload the virus. So, I was to scuttle the ship... Dowd gave me a couple of maps, of the lower and upper parts of the ship, which he had because, like most MJ12 assets, it originally belonged to the Illuminati. He advised me to get some explosives - crosses on the maps indicated where I should place them, so I needed at least 5. Only had 3 in my inventory... He told me to meet a guy called Smuggler (creative, I know), and get explosives from him.

Image

So, I needed to find this Smuggler guy, and that was no easy task, especially considering MJ12 troops had been closing in on my location, and there were like a dozen of them... I had to run. Maybe if I'd taken out Greene, they wouldn't have shown up? Anyway, eventually, I went down some stairs in a hole on the street. I pressed a switch, and someone asked me for the password... I said "Bloodshot", which was correct. Oh! I think I got that from some bum a long while ago. Neat. I went in, disabled an alarm, and talked to the guy. Despite me explaining the whole predicament, and how I was practically saving the world and what not, Smuggler still wanted 2400 for the explosives - money I didn't have... He told me maybe I could loot the armoury of the submarine base... I suppose that's what I'll need to do. Oh, and on Smuggler's computer, there was a message addressed at me, saying "ICARUS IS LOOKING FOR YOU" repeating on many lines... Icarus is Daedalus' son in myth... What should that mean? Another AI? Earlier, Daedalus sent me a strange message, as if someone was trying to hack it (assuming it's really an AI). We'll see what happens.

Image

Finally, I needed to head to the top of the hotel, where Jock was waiting on the helicopter. I did so, dodging fire from MJ12 (interestingly, the cops were shooting at them when I wasn't on their radar). There were 2 cops in the hotel, but I snuck past them. I also read that I was already the "MOST WANTED" terrorist, and accused of killing Lebedev, Navarre and Manderley. Whatever. Took off with Jock, and was taken to the submarine base, where I saved.

Oh, and this stage's conversation music is really good:

So, I left the helicopter and entered the military base through some air duct. Quickly, a soldier at the door intercepts me, and tells me their friend Vinny told them I'd come, then gave me the key to the front gate... Said the FEMA soldiers inside wouldn't go easy on me, though. Of course they wouldn't.

Image

I went in and snuck around, unlocking some doors and hacking some computers... Apparently, Walton Simons plans to spread the Grey Death masking it as insecticide to get rid of insects which are suspected to be the carries of the Grey Death. Heh... Apparently, Gunther had been looking for me in Hong Kong and just missed me... Tough luck. And of course, VersaLife building was demolished and cleaned up to hide MJ12 involvement.

Image

I was trying to find the ammo warehouse and get some LAMs, but the building with the "Ammo Warehouse" sign on it had no LAMs. Very frustrating. I disabled a lot of bots on my way by hacking computers, but eventually had to fight the soldiers... Took down several, and some of them had LAMs, so I managed to make it to 6 LAMs - 1 more than I need to sink the ship. This'll do... Shame I ran out of tranquiliser darts in the process. I headed for the ship through the top of the building next to it, had to get past some of those electricity-shooting spiders to get there. But I made it. Meanwhile, they'd conducted a raid on Smuggler's place. But he fortunately got away. Next time, I'll have to scuttle that ship.
