I'll be honest, "Still playing Witcher 3" means he's probably going to rate it higher than 1 & 2. Neither of which he played for very long as, in his words they "Bored [him] to tears".

Still, I expect a good hard spanking from him when it comes up for review.

*sits and waits patiently in anticipation*

I'm surprised Yahtzee compared Invisible, Inc. to XCOM instead of Syndicate (the Peter Molyneaux original, not the recent remake that wished it was Deus Ex), and he didn't jump on an opportunity to rip on WATCH_DOGS again. But I laughed at the End of Evangelion bit, and the origami bridge, and farting on guards' faces. What's funny is he could have also mentioned Ghost in the Shell for the Dex part, but that might have been to obvious.
Also, am I the only one who read "Dex and Invisible, Inc." too fast and thought it said "Deus EX: Invisible War"?

Was just about to post the same thing.

May be wrong but hadn't Yahtz promised to get rid of the "indie double bill" thing and do proper feature-length reviews of each game?

I think this one was for more thematic purposes, both games being sci-fi and quite short, I'm fairly sure Invisible Inc. is only a few hours long.

So Dex is basicly Deus Ex, but tied closer to traditional cyberpunk and lacking few vital letters. Yeah, think i'm gonna pass, and stick to the Shadowrun for now - it provides me enough of good ol' cyberpunk with a healthy side of fantasy, if i ever want some variety.

And Mark of the Ninja was OK, so i'll probably pick up next Klei game later.

BTW: "Still playing Witcher 3"
Now you've really caught my interest in next ZP.

Well, this video did get one thing right - DS9 > TNG

Seriously, though, I'll have to give Invisible Inc. a look. It does come across as a in interesting concept and Klei has dome some solid work in the past (even though I'm apparently the only person who thought Shank was "meh"...).

Sounds like he only played half of Dex before being too disgusted to continue so it only got half a review.

Five hours, minus replays, but it has little replay value. You can increase difficulty, but it will just make random bad luck punish you harder. It is not really more challenging - just worse.

That's true, though he usually doesn't review stuff he quits on (like Life is Strange).

If you have to use a DS9 character why Bashir when there is also a "Dax" in there.
Too obvious?
OK, fine.
Cyberpunk games are hilarious, especially franchise ones. Yes! Down with the MAN, down with corporate scum!
Just hand over your money to this smaller corporation, they will pay their taxes to the man, you'll get your counter-culture-esque game - everybody wins.
Nag, nag, nag, I found this video most entertaining and will be back for more.

You know what really lacked in Invisible Inc? Character conversations. Just short ones, the kind Evolve or Mass Effect did to mask loading times while occupying various forms of transit.
Giving every two characters some talking would've been great.
