Hello fellow humans....SPOILERS AHEAD...duh. (This is a bit of a rant. Pardon.)
If you've played and finished the story you've probably been left by a similar feeling that can only be described by the following words:

Morherfucking Square Enix! They've fucking fucked us all again!
You know you've been screwed when the message NEW GAME+ unlocked after what can only be described as the 1st boss fight in the game. Later confirmed by 10 minutes of cutscenes which are basically one cliffhanger after another. This game leaves you with more loose ends than...I don't know....Hillary Clinton's lies maybe? Doesn't matter.
At the end you are served with a nice plate of "Fuck you, thanks for paying for this "Episode 1",which is something we decided to leavet out. You propably wouldn't think this game warrants a full $60 price otherwise, right?"
...If you've played Deus Ex: The Fall, you'll be feeling a familiar feeling - that game also ended on a cliffhanger and a message: ...story continues in Episode 2... although nobody mentioned that at the start anyway...
IN THE NEWS: Apparently we're getting a DLC story as well, not even a full month after launch?! What the hell is wrong with these companies? (...ARK announces paid DLC in Early Access...) Is this it? Have we lost the battle for good, complete games to super buggy (beta) launches, and infinite DLCs? Goddamn it and goddamn the pre-orders.

I am a big fan of the Deus Ex series, and this game offers a good experience both in game mechanics, environments and story if you look at this as EPISODE 1.
I'm mad. Because the story ends on numerous cliffhangers, the DLC a month after launch, the game that will come after this will probably involve many same environments and probably the same character set and probably be the "same game" only in "expansion mode", the fact that story elements that haven't been in Episode 1 are even included in the trailers for the game.
STORY THREADS LEFT OPEN FOR "EPISODE 2":
- Juggernaut Collective - Janus
- The Illuminati "master plan"
- Viktor Marchenko's destiny
- Dvali Family power struggle (Otar and the other guy)
- Berk's bombing (Prague or London?)
- Eliza's evolution (retribution to Morgan Everett)
- Characters from Human Revolution (Megan?, Pritchard is coming with the DLC, Faridah Malik is apparently alive...)
- Samizdat becomes Silhouette? Paris location teasers...
What were your thoughts on it? Do you think we should fuck Square Enix in the ass as well? ah...
