28 years later, the most subversive RPG feels more relevant - Inverse
Find out more about Redfall at QuakeCon - EurogamerGames like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VII have left a lasting mark on the game industry, but other RPGs have a more understated influence. Live A Live is a brilliant RPG that simply didn’t get the recognition it deserved in 1994, mainly because it never received a North American localization. But all these years later, Square Enix’s HD-2D remake finally brings the game into the limelight. Perhaps what’s most remarkable about Live A Live, however, is that it feels just as unique and subversive as ever, even by 2022’s standards.

Insider: Deus Ex series will get a long-awaited sequel - GagadgetIn general, we like to think we know how much something is worth. The decision is based less on logic and more on emotion, an intangible gut feeling. When it comes to video games we know when a game is under, or in most cases, over-priced. Unfortunately, that aptness in designating price to value is disrupted by inflation.
A few months ago Square Enix publishing house decided to sell some of its Western studios, among which was Eidos Montreal - the creator of modern Deus Ex parts and the co-author of the latest Tomb Raider trilogy.
The new owner of the Canadian studio became the Swedish holding company Embracer Group. Immediately after the deal was announced, it was suggested that this move will allow the developers to return to the Deus Ex series, loved by millions of gamers. And it seems that this theory is not far from the truth.
The GamesRadar website published insider information from Jeff Grubb. He reported that Eidos Montreal is indeed planning to continue the Deus Ex franchise. In this case, game designers aim to create a high-class game, which will not repeat the mistakes similar in concept project Cyberpunk 2077 from the Polish studio CD Projekt RED.
Jeff Grubb didn't specify whether the protagonist of the last two parts, Adam Jensen, will be the main character, or gamers expect another character. However, the game itself is in such an early stage of development that it is too early to talk about the details of its plot.
