Bathing is a well-used trope in film and TV. The "shower of angst," for example, is usually a stand-in for an emotional moment happening to our hero. It might make us empathise more with the person lowering their head under a flow of water.

You might not know his name, but you've heard his voice. Elias Toufexis has played some of best known characters in video games. Kobin in Splinter Cell, Frederico Auditore in Assassin’s Creed, but he's perhaps most famous for playing Adam Jensen in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. In this interview he talks about voice acting, Mankind Divided and the difference between Star Wars and Shakespeare.


I'd always pictured the game's stealth elements as a puzzle of sorts, but apparently that's not enough for Square Enix. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is getting a real puzzle mode, and it's called Breach.
