Dingleberry Dickwad: INeedAName: Personally, I also found Deux-Ex ruined by the boss battles. I spent man hours slogging through a very stealth-oriented character only to get locked in a room with a guy with a huge gun and not enough places for me to hide. It was stupid and I frankly didn't have the patience to play the fight over and over so I could find the right nooks and crannies game developers were kind enough to bless me with.Shiat like that has led me to spending more time with table top games.Pretty much all the boss fights in DX: HR can be beaten in a few seconds, even on hard mode. Put 2 points into the Typhoon augment. On regular mode it only takes 2 hits from your typhoon to kill all the bosses except for the final fight. And the final fight can be won ridiculously easily too. Laser rifle, get one from the room with all the creepy looking muscle statues where you fight the guy that beat the crap out of you at the beginning of the game. Couple seconds with that and the boss is toast.Use whatever items you have to boost your battery power, cloak, walk up to boss, typhoon once wait a second, typhoon again, profit.
NeoCortex42: What about this gem from Blue Dragon:[www.fangirl.eu image 500x345]King Poo. An actual piece of shiat is giving you shiat.
Glitchwerks: Ed Finnerty: This is what keeps me from buying Deus Ex on Steam. I had it on PS3 and the bosses really killed it for me.Every boss in Deus Ex: HR can be beaten within a minute at the most. 2 of them can be taken down within 10 seconds.I hate boss battles too, but the Deus Ex ones can be resolved with little to no fuss so I didn't mind them.
Lando Lincoln: Personally, I've grown really tired of boss battles in video games. It would be nice to have a "if you don't really enjoy boss battles then just press this to kill this guy and move on" button. But I'm an old man so my opinion doesn't matter much to the video gaming industry.
