I would say A. I've always known it as an Egg in a Basket, but my parents have called it a toad in a hole once or twice as well. I have never seen option B before, so I'm gonna call it Links in a Sink. Canada BTW.

Does anyone else think the distorted Nathan Drake face looks like Jeff?

Well that really sucks. I guess I just didn't experience any of those issues. Certainly not the micro-stuttering.

As for the screens, not exactly sure what you're trying to show. The texture was fucked up originally and they cleaned it up in the DC? I guess I'm missing something.

Edit: Looked at some comparison videos and more screens. It's been a little while since I played the DC so I'll have to check it out. Never noticed any texture issues when I was playing, and the toned down yellow filter was only apparent when I watched clips side by side.

This is definetely making me want to go back to HR, maybe buy it on the Wii U this time. Wasn't the bosses revamped heavily in that version? Because I enjoyed the game well enough, but I never managed to complete it even with multiple tries over the years because FUCK THOSE BOSS ENCOUNTERS

That is a great version of the game. The directors cut version on PC is garbage, but the Wii U version should be alright.

I had no issues with the PC version of the Director's Cut. Why did you find it to be "garbage"?

More Deus Ex? I can dig it!

@hassun: thought that trailer was worth a new thread instead of being buried at page 3 of comments on an article.

A separate thread for the trailer seems fine to me.

To everyone saying they haven't played it because of the boss battles, or that was what made them quit, you should give the Director's Cut a chance. Fixes the boss battles big time.

Here's a video of the reworked fights showing options for players who want to take a stealthy/hacking approach.

@spoonman671: black and gold? I thought it was blue and white.

I think Drew is doing fine. Bob Barker is overrated.

I picked up Battlefield Hardline last week to play with friends, but so far I've been regretting it. The game is just not fun, most likely because I'm four or five games behind everyone else in experience. The learning curve is very steep. Plus, the TDM spawns are horrendously broken. So, as it stands, my vote is Hotline Miami 2, but that should change once I get more games under my belt.

I would say they key to enjoying Hardline, or any Battlefield game, is to stop playing TDM and focus on the other game modes. Hotwire, Heist and Blood Money are a fucking blast, and in Hotwire especially, being under leveled isn't going to disadvantage you because you can use a grenade launcher right off the hop
