Just wanted to see how many references to Deus Ex of old you guys have seen. I've heard some people talking about versalife in the streets and i noticed that when Tongs son escaped on that motor boat it was named "The Tracer.".

So what have you guys seen?

Game seems full of them.

Right from the intro scene you can see labels from several corporations present in the original. The first hack in the mission has a code 0451. You get reprimanded for visiting ladies toilets.

Joseph Manderley is in a bunch of emails in the police station. There's another email, I don't remember where, which says that the UN is thinking about creating an anti-terrorist organisation (that would be UNATCO :p).

I can't remember anything else but there are a lot of reference to the first game.

There's also the part in Montreal where every desk has a spilled coffee cup on it. I doubt that's a reference but everytime I saw that I went "I SPILL MY DRINK !"

My favorite so far was randomly hearing a guy in a Detroit alley whistling the theme song from the original Deus Ex.

I beat the game and watched through the credits. There's a big one there so I suggest watching it. It gave me chills lol :)
