The Vangelis Blade Runner Esper edition soundtrack plays in the background while I’m watching this Japanese cut of the new Deus Ex 3 trailer, making me think more about urban environments, architecture and civil unrest in infospace, rather than implants, grey licensed guns and cool mirrorshades. Look at the freeroamer urban games and two broken concepts will reveal themselves instantly: 1, you can only enter interiors that are crucial to storytelling or gameplay mechanisms (quest points or places to refill stats) and 2, cities do not breathe, they do not live. The easiest way to show off quantity would be swarms of people, not a dozen that walks around like they’re being pushed around in wheelchairs. Cities need people. People will embrace the city virus.
