Highlight of the Week: Breakdancing? I HATE breakdancing!

With the incandescent Deus Ex: Human Revolution undoubtedly the highlight of this week's game releases, we thought it only appropriate that it feature in our official, fully sanctioned, fully-a-bit-silly Highlight of the Week video too. But how to find something suitable in such a serious cyberpunk masterpiece?

Fortunately, Deus Ex provided handsomely. It seems that cybernetically-enhanced security consultants care not for the ways of street dance, or its self-righteous practioners...

Thanks to analogmarz for the original source vid.

HOTW: Now THAT is an introduction

HOTW: Very awkward water cooler moment
Just a couple of Joes shooting the breeze

    i totally murdered this guy w/ my armblades... then reloaded because i'm playing as a "pacifist"(except for the STUPID boss fights...metal gear this is not...). i like how he doesn't stop dancing to talk to/lecture you...

    I wish I could do that to REAL street dancers. C*nts...
  • Doctalen - August 26, 2011 4:11 p.m.

    Yeah that isn't break dance music at all, loved watching the guy but couldn't understand the choice of music.

    Man I am loving this game. Anyone else see the Final Fantasy XXVII poster yet, heh?

    Ha ha ha best i've seen all week
  • UberNoob - August 26, 2011 12:54 p.m.

    I'm so getting this game...
  • el.waxa - August 26, 2011 10:15 a.m.

    You would've thought they would get a guy doing some footwork and mo-capping that, but on closer inspection the NPC is wearing leather pants so I cant see him doing anything spectacular at risk of losing a bollock, theyve certainly went for realism here.

    You like to closely inspect NPC's pants don't you... you dirty bastard...

  • tacehtselrahc - August 26, 2011 9:54 a.m.

    You'd have to say he was asking for that.
  • Shanetexas - August 26, 2011 9:54 a.m.

    Yeah, a break dancer ... "breaking" it down. Do break dancers really talk this much? What was with that whack music? And why did this bit remind me so much of the breakdancer in "The Darkness"?"
  • Spybreak8 - August 26, 2011 9:45 a.m.

    Yeah I saw that. I didn't punch em though lol.
  • StrayGator - August 26, 2011 9:40 a.m.

    and with Meshuggah in the background. Probably the most undanceable band there is.
  • ParanoidAndroid - August 26, 2011 10:41 p.m.

    Indeed. Polyrhythms in 17/8 and 7/16 are not something human limbs can endure. Not without incurring spinal injuries, anyway.
  • avantguardian - August 28, 2011 1:42 a.m.

    just imagine when some dude augments himself w/ extra limbs... tomas haake still might be able to outplay 'em though;)
  • avantguardian - August 28, 2011 1:52 a.m.

    i also would throw U.S. Maple's hat into the ring of "most undanceable band"(its basically the soundtrack to robo-tripping)...
  • garnsr - August 26, 2011 9:21 a.m.

    That's not really breakdancing, is it? I thought it was more just dancing.
  • JimmyDugan - August 26, 2011 9:15 a.m.

    I'm definitely doing that tonight.
  • samsneeze - August 26, 2011 9:13 a.m.

    That looked like the dancing from Jet Set Radio, except without the dynamic camera angles. The punching was funny enough though, I guess.
  • Robx - August 26, 2011 8:53 a.m.

    HOLY SH*T I didn't expect that! F*cking crying of laughter now
