Thanks jacobvandy and Jerykk!

I almost hit the add to cart button on Dark Souls, until the guy after you mentioned the horribly keyboard & mouse feel. I guess I need to explore the reception of DS some more before I decide.

Jarykk, very interestimg what you wrote! BUT... is it just me or is the trial & error thing in stealth games kinda what makes them interesting? As a matter of fact In games Like Deus Ex 3 I didnt buy the upgrades that make you see vision cones and the radial sound feedback thing. The NOT knowing how much noise you can or shouldnt make adds to the immersion and fun of stealth. Dear god do I hope Thief 4 won't have all that stuff MotN has...

But for a 2d game it sounds fun! Will buy it!

I think the fun in stealth games comes from observing enemy positions and patrols, formulating a plan to sneak past them and then executing that plan. While I do like testing the limits of AI, I don't particularly enjoy it when I get screwed because of some tiny miscalculation in terms of AI detection range. For example, in Hitman Absolution, you can run while crouched but you never really get a clear sense of how much noise you're making. You just kinda have to guess and if you guess wrong, sucks for you, now restart the level. If a game has quicksave, I don't have an issue with trial and error but if there are sparse checkpoints or I have to restart the level, anything that minimizes trial and error is ideal.

Sad to see all the repeating sales. Hoping for a good Fallout New Vegas sale...!

New Vegas has been on sale like 500 times over the past few years... how cheap do you want it to go? I believe it's gone as low as $5 before (non-Ultimate edition). GMG currently has the regular edition for $7 if you use this coupon code: GMG30-DPLIM-DN831. Considering that FNV is the best RPG since Arcanum and has 100+ hours of gameplay, that's a pretty good deal.
