The Menu                 

This is a step-by-step analysis of the game's various menu options, which may differ slightly per game version.

TUTORIALS:
This section contains video tutorials on the following subjects: ADVANCED HACKING, AUGMENTATIONS, COMBAT, GUARDS, HACKING, MENUS, MOVING OBJECTS, NAVIGATION, OBJECTIVES ACTIVATION, SECURITY SYSTEMS, and STEALTH.  You must have "unlocked" the tutorial while playing the game in order for it to show up here.

CREDITS:
Shows the game credits.  You may skip these at any point you'd like.

EXIT:
Exits the game.  I forbid you to ever use it: Stay plugged in!

THE GAME MENU:

The game's menu consists of several other menu's: An Inventory Menu, a Mission Log Menu, a Media Log Menu, an Augmentations Menu, and a Map Menu.

The Inventory:
--------------
You can take a look at your items in the inventory menu.  It's possible to expand your inventory up to three times with the Carrying Capacity Augmentation, part of the Cybernetic Arm Prosthesis.  Your base inventory has 8x7 slots, and each of the three possible upgrades expands it with 2x7 slots, for a maximum of 14x7 slots.

The Misson Log:
---------------
You can view your completed and current missions here.  This comes in handy when you continue a saved game, in which case it can serve as a mini-debrief.

The Media Log:
--------------
Every Pocket Secretary and PC you've ever read will show up here.  I must say, I'd love a photographic memory like Jensen.

The Augmentations Menu:
-----------------------
View and select your augmentations in this menu.  More info can be found in this guide in the augmentations section.

The Map:
--------
This shows a map of the area.  This guide assumes that north is pointing towards the top of the map.
