May Cover Revealed – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The original Deus Ex is one of the most critically acclaimed shooter/RPG hybrids of all-time. In 2011, Eidos-Montreal resurrected the dormant franchise with Human Revolution, giving the series an updated look while remaining true to the player choice-driven gameplay. Eidos-Montreal knew its game wasn’t perfect, and has worked to improve the series' combat systems and boss encounters for the latest entry in the series – Mankind Divided.

Set in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution, Adam Jensen returns and joins forces with an Interpol-funded task force aiming to hunt down and capture augmented terrorists in a world that now hates and fears transhumans. Jensen has a new suite of augmentations that allow him to cleverly navigate stealth, combat, and social interactions, but how Jensen chooses to solve every problem is entirely up to you.

World Of Warcraft Subscription Tokens Now Live

In March, Blizzard announced a new way for World of Warcraft players to pay their monthly subscription fees. Tokens mirror EVE Online’s PLEX system, allowing players to trade gold at the auction house for trinkets worth one month of game time.

The flip side is that players can purchase the tokens for $20 and sell them, essentially providing a safe, gold farmer-free way of purchasing in-game gold with real money. The tokens went live yesterday.

The Legend Of Zelda Collides With Game Of Thrones In Mashup Intro

Mashups have become an artistic genre unto themselves. And, like any style, there are good works and those you might just want to shuffle past. This is one of the better ones.

I’m not just a fan of this because it uses my favorite version of Hyrule (the one from A Link to the Past), but because it also does some smart things with musical flourishes. The video also doesn’t overstay its welcome at just a hair over one minute.
