Went to play the game only to find there's a 2+gig patch out. Kind of vague on the details but from this post....

Quote:

  • AI-related bug fixes.
  • The bug causing disappearing personality dialogs in the Chase & Chet
    Wagner conversations has been fixed.

  • Texture issues in Sarif HQ, Detroit, Hengsha and TYM have been fixed.
  • Texture tiling issues in Adam's apartment and other parts of Detroit have
    been fixed.
  • Issues relating to sounds becoming 'stuck' have been fixed.
  • A bug that could cause music to not play during the "walk and talk" intro
    sequence has been fixed.
  • Audio glitches between level loads have been fixed.
  • A bug causing the "incoming commentary" trigger to activate when the
    commentary system is disabled has been fixed.
  • A bug causing music to stall when alt-tabbing has been fixed.
  • A setup dialogue allowing changes outside the game has been added.
  • Text-language selection option has been added/fixed.
  • Issues with language-switching not functioning properly have been addressed.

This thread as well - Patch incoming Monday! :: Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut General Discussions

Anyway the only issue I've noticed thus far was a severe case of lag. Seems I wasn't the only one - Be warned about Deus Ex HR Director's Cut - Steam Users' Forums

Anyway hopefully this 2gig patch will at least fix that

Just FYI

If you'd play it sometime soon, I'd go ahead and get it now. I seriously doubt it will be marked down that much more than it is if you already own it. Plus, it includes the DLC which is nice, and it puts it in the proper place during the game at that. The DLC takes place about halfway through the game and if you have the game and the DLC separate you'd need to stop playing at a certain point, play the DLC and then go back to your game again. $10.00 is a great deal for it, $5.00 if you've already got the Missing Link DLC.

It won't hurt to wait if you're not going to get into it for a bit anyway though, and you might save a few bucks. Though, I doubt you'd save more than $5 by waiting at best.

I already finished the Director's Cut about a week ago. It was fun, and naturally it gets patched after I've finished. Fortunately I didn't run into any of those bugs, or rather I didn't notice them if I did.

Did you see the first post about the discount? - http://www.sevenforums.com/gaming/31...tor-s-cut.html

And I personally thought it was worth the asking price on release day, let alone now. But... some people like Crysis where I'm not impressed so I get it

BTW the game does seem a bit longer with all the added content; plus you now have more options dealing with the bosses.

The game has been slow going for due to the fact I'm in school, plus, this would be my forth go around with the game so it kind of get's repetitive at times for me.

That said, there is an air of curiosity to see how the implemented the DLC into the new game. Haven't got to the part yet.

Yeah, the boss fights are much better. Way better actually. Especially if you have a build that is not about blasting your way through the game.

There were other tweaks made as well. More credits and more praxis points are available. Meaning you can get stronger faster and it makes the game less frustrating early on. It's actually possible to max out your stats on a single playthrough in the Director's Cut. Plus even if you don't there is a New Game Plus mode now as well. You only keep your augments though and must regain items and credits again.

It's not hard to figure out where the DLC is while playing through, but only because you lose your stuff. It seamlessly integrates with the game though and there is no outside loading screen or credits. Once you leave on the ship the DLC is the next scene after and once it's over you continue on with the game as if it was just another level in the main quest, which it now is in the Director's cut.

Yeah I noticed it's easier to gain praxis kits now. I tend to upgrade when I need and opened the upgrade tab to find I had something like 9 praxis kits

And now that you mentioned it, I seem to have a heck of a lot more coin. I really don't know where to spend it though as I've got a pretty strong character already.

Something else I notice last night was the graphics seemed to have gotten a lot better the update, even the in game sounds sound better. You notice that too, or is it me.

Definitely, improved fog, lighting, and higher rez textures were all part of the Director's Cut edition, meaning the game is indeed prettier than it was originally. They also upgraded the sound as well as you suspect.

The whole game got an overhaul, but the most noticeable upgrades are the Bosses being unbroken, the DLC integration, and the graphical upgrades.

Yeah I did notice the fog and lighting improvement, but for some odd reason it didn't click till the other day, after I posted about the 2gig patch. I guess I associated that patch with the improvements.

One thing I will say the patch did is improve overall performance. Was getting a severe case of lag before the update, after the update, the lag is gone.

BTW didn't have lag in the original games so it was definitely something in the Director's Cut release.
