Now more than halfway through Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Or I think so.

The more I think about it... this doesn't fit the DX timeline. Sure, it's "set before" the previous two. But augmentations are ubiquitous. Half the people you meet in the game have them. There are no physical locks - just credit card swipers that are trivial to hack with a hacking minigame (I miss the nano-lockpicks and wireless pad hacking tools). In areas of this world, it seems everyone is eager (or at least resigned) to implanting stuff in their body. In the world of the first Deus Ex, there were only two people with any physical augs like we're seeing at all, and they were considered "relics."

What gives?
