Default Is anyone playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution?

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a really cool (if sometimes frustrating) game for PS3 and Xbox 360.

It's relatively open world, like Bethesda's Elder Scrolls Oblivion or Fallout 3/New Vegas. You can go (within the city hubs) almost anywhere you want to do....discover hidden/secret areas...pick up things that will either add to your arsenal or to your augmentations. You can make choices which alter the outcome of the game. You can choose to be a cold-blooded killer, a pacifist "I'll only stun 'em" type, or somewhere in between. In conversations, you have multiple paths to choose from.

Anyhoo, the biggest reason I'm asking is: Has anyone seen the really cool Easter Egg references in the game to other sci-fi movies? I've seen a couple really cool ones so far. I won't spoil them yet. But they're pretty cool.

I thought about getting it since I enjoyed the first one, but I really don't have the money for it at the moment. Really have cut back on gaming lately.

I hear ya. There is, however, a way you can get the game cheaper. If you have a GameStop or Best Buy nearby, you can take your older, hardly ever played anymore games in and trade them toward the purchase of a newer title, or any other title. Sometimes, I've gone in with so many older games that I actually managed to pay for the newer title just out of the trade in value.

I used to be big into trade-ins but no game really seems worth it to me these days. About the only ones I play are sports games (and they aren't new ones).
