Critical Miss: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

I don't get it. I've never seen Inspector Gadget. Anyone care to explain what's the funny reference?

MrJKapowey:
Two game things my friend can't pronounce:

His way my way (which I believe is the correct way as far as I know)

Der Riese - Dear R-ease-ay Der R-i-za
Deus Ex - Deuce Day-uss

two diphtongs:

"ie" : ee
"ei" : eye

(EDIT: i.e: "r-ease-eh")

I can pronounce it thanks to my French lesson, way to go eduction.

I'm so glad no one is around me at work right now because I laughed really loud.

Part of me wants that to be made, and the other part is questioning me, stupid nostalgia.

Dude, your drawing has gotten waaaaayyyyy better.

Also why are you the first person to make the Inspector Gadget joke? It's GOLD I tells ya!

Not to be a stick in the mud, but honestly, I didn't find it funny, but then again, I don't think it's cool to piss on perfectly great games for cheap laughs. But that's me...

Also, is it really that hard to say 'Day-us Ex?' Cause I personally don't see what the big fucking deal is with the pronounciation.

Deus Ex - Deuce Day-uss

Definitely Day-us and not Dooze/Deuce/Dux/Derz-Err, etc.

I have a slightly different problem with saying Deus Ex, which is, everytime I say it, I'm acutely aware that it sounds like Day Of Sex. So when I'm talking to someone who has no knowledge of it, they are giving me strange looks.

Yeah I just call it Human Revolution unless someone asks me for clarification, in which case in try to speak as clearly as possible. I find it best to pause between Deus and Ex to avoid confusion.

I will throw all my money at the developers if that means I can make this real.

Had to post the relevant xkcd:

But yeah... Inspector Gadget was a hell of a show. (Hated the movie, though.)

BRILLIANT!

Go, go, gadget deep grainy voice.

Bravo. It was perfect, my browser window was small enough that I read the first panel before scrolling up the second. Very witty and has the honor of being the first laugh-out-loud of the week. Cheers guys!

Inspector Gadget!?!? SOLD!

I just call it Deus Sex on purpose anyway, I love it so much.

And on that note, every time I see the URL for the site deusex.com I can't help but wonder what sort of sex deu is.

Reminds me a bit of my opinion about the first game. Ion Storm missed a good opportunity when they didn't name the executable for the game deus.exe.

Gogo gadget shot of whiskey.

I approve this

So not : R-ee-as-ay?

Well damn, that made me laugh a bit harder than I thought it would.

I'd would so play that! Somebody get on it now!

Go and watch the cartoon immeadiately. In which his neice Penny and his dog Brian do all the work and Inspector Gadget causes hilarious interludes with his augments. Also an evil guy pets a cat.

Loved the comic this has been at the back of mind mind the entire time I've been playing. xD Nevermind robocop.

^I don't know hat you're talking about. <_< (Mistakes get made... this is a gaming website, after all...)

Brian is the dog in "Family Guy", I think you mean Brain :P
Be careful though there is an inspector gadget cartoon made by different people without Don Adams that was pretty awful sauce the little I see of it.
There was also a different He-Man cartoon that wasnt up to much.

Back on topic liked the comic :)

xD

The theme tune is actually pretty awesome as was the cartoon. Inspector Gadget was pretty superfluous to the plot though his neice did all the detective work. I'm surprised Venture Bros hasn't picked up on it yet.

Oops typo xD but yeah Brian would still work pretty well in his place I think :p

I don't think I;ve ever seen a picture of Inspector Gadget looking so depressed it's kind of sad rofl.

I have to admit that I had to read the comments to understand the comic.

For some reason this Critical Miss reminded me that I still have not played through more than the first level of Deus Ex, even though I do own it. Kind of embarassing, really.

Do de do de do?!?!

Have you ever even heard the theme!!

It's 'Dun ta dun ta dunt INSPECTOR GADGET! Dun ta dun ta dunt duun duuuuun!

Sheesh.

: P

I always pronounce it in French: Döös ö. Yeah, I can't explain it better than that D:

Only thing I have to say is that this is freakin' awesome. Nicely done chaps, you've seriously made my day. ^_^

And then the classic tag line at the bottom. Please tell me that, as one of you was writing that, the other slammed a fist down onto the arm of a chair and startled a cat.

Depressed Inspector Gadget looks a bit like Spike Seigel, actually (Cowboy Bebop, if you dont remember).

Brought a smile to my face after a rough day. Props.

PUUUUT ON YOUR TRENCHCOAAAT
AND FIGHT SOME CONSPIRACIEEEEES

Alternative lame meme-filled post:

"Go-go-gadget extend-o-legs!" *bumps into ceiling* "OUCH! I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS"
"Yes you did, I heard you say it just now, Go-go-gadget extend-o-legs!"
"SHUT UP PENNY"

I had no idea where you were going with it. And then I saw Inspector Gadget. Makes perfect sense. Though, that game would be incredibly hard even on easy mode. You'd go to use stealth and a fire hose would come out.
Is it wrong that I never really cared to watch the actual show?

I am acutely aware of how you pronounce the title. Still makes me laugh, though. I still can't look at the title without thinking "Deus Sex". Every. Damn. Time.

Oh..wait...wait...

Now I get it.

Doo do do do doot~ Inspecter Gadget~

Good movie btw...

I even watched the Go go Gadget around the word show when I was younger.

Hahaha, oh man. This is hilarious!
I have to save this comic.

Is there anyway to get a cut of the last panel? That will be the new wallpaper its just too cool.

Love it. On another note, why can't people say deus correctly? It's day-us, people. It's god-damn Latin.

Experimental:
OH MY GOD! I will never look at Jensen with the same eyes again.

OT: It was fantabulously funny, I hope SE doesn't try its infamous FF course, gazillion sequels, same formula remastered over and over ala George Lucas... We can only hope.

EDIT: I SO want a wallpaper version of Badass Gadget, please make it happen.
