    They've gone almost completely silent, one ambiguous statement on their facebook page being only exception. That is telling a lot in itself.

    Right, here are my impressions on what I've played of the mod so far. Do note that I'm not going to play further because I'm busy with other games and I don't want to spoil too much of the mod right now, I'm playing from a leak after all.

    What's this about yellow lighting? I hope it's not some sort of homage to the piss filter in HR, I enjoyed that game but I really didn't enjoy that urine stain on the gameplay.

    Why are some people so butthurt over this mod? Is it an army of CyberP alts pissed off or something?

    I think it's because the mod team has been saying they will release "soon" since 2011, and the mod is something like 7 years old. Now is the first time I've checked since in '11 (or '12?) only to find one big pissing match between the modders and fans over what is essentially vaporware. The link to the leak even returns an error.

    You gotta admit it's hilarious shit. I like the irony of conspiracies regarding a game about conspiracies. if you think the moddb is bad check the /r/Deusex sub. Some dude even posted a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCFoV3n5Md8

    It has all the ingredients for DRAMA!
    - a game people love and feel strongly about
    - a mod many people were waiting for since years
    - hype
    - butthurt modders
    - butthurt gamers
    - conspirucy

    Actually it's almost strange that whole thing hasn't quite reached TSLRP levels yet...

    So, now they're arguing that Revision is a gameplay mod first and foremost, and an audiovisual redesign only as a distant second. Hilarious indeed...

    Dev221117 is like a malicious bug, following this mod everywhere and ruining shit for everyone.

    Typical ModDB drama indeed, lots of butthurt from everyone, over a free mod that they all invested exaclty zero of anything of value into.

    Apparently, it's simply impossible to simply let it be and semi-forget about it until it gets released, amirite? Feckin aspie neckbeards.

    Personally, I'm simply waiting until it gets released and then I'm gonna play the shit out of it, regardless of drama.

    I didn't know that following a mod I'm interested in wherever I go to was such a problem. Anyway, I'm concerned for this because I have a GOG copy and their decision to release it on Steam only will hurt me financially, though I can buy a Steam copy for it. I just hope not to, and want to caution everyone of a potential setback.

    No, you are not interested in it, you hate it. And that's fine, someone is bound to do that. And no, you have a Steam copy I gifted to you, just so you couldn't have this argument! It's not confirmed that it's coming to steam, but just in case I gifted you a Steam copy since you seemed so nervous about it, and this is the gratitude...

    Sorry, I have proof that you didn't gift me any Steam copy. What you gifted was an SE copy, which is something different. Here's proof:

    Stop being coy, the SE deal got over, you got your badge, now just be a little honest.

    The SE copy is a steam key...

    It's not, it's just an installer. You didn't even bother to check it did you? It is a completely different version from the Steam one.

    Oh, get a room you two... You have spread your burning love in every place where Revision is discussed, and that in itself is doing some damage.

    ONE thing that I want to know, ONE thing that nobody from Caustic wants to address no mater how many people on ModDB and Steam thread ask it, is will this goddamn mod be playable with GOG's release of Deus Ex? Yes or no? Why is that one question so difficult to answer, that you guys either mysteriously disappear or do your best to change the subject every single time someone asks it?
