Series Hiatus: JonCJG (formerly "Digital Ph33r") repeatedly requested that the viewers be patient for the next installments. However, much like his other Machinima works, Jon has officially disowned Deus ex Machina as well as abandoned it.
In the original game, Defect betraying Kaptain Korg and seizing power was a critical plot point. In the second game, as the Defect Police have been Demoted to Extra, this scene is removed entirely, and it isn't clear just how Defect got from the Soldier stage to the Justice stage anymore.
In the second game, most dialogue relating to Defect's psychic powers are removed, but the lyrics of the Lover stage still contain references to reading minds and healing scars.
