Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut

The EU release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut on Steam wasn't the smoothest possible. First, the game's actual release happened 10 hours after Steam's countdown had reached zero. And second, the price reduction for those already owning the game and The Missing Link DLC wasn't as large as promised. That turned out to be a mistake and was fixed fairly quick. Some bought the game right away regardless -- 1€ is hardly a deal changer.

There are various bugs, even in Patch 2, but nothing that prevents finishing the campaign. At least, I did not meet such.

Path of Exile

I wonder if I should give Path of Exile another go. After my quick dip -- about a month ago actually; a week before the beta ended -- I have learned that the game has more depth in its mechanics than I thought. Then again, there are also reasons why I never got beyond Act 1 in the first place.

Could've just been because I had not read a book in awhile. And the feeling did disappear after I got further into the book.
