What happened to you, TimeGate? The Kohan series was fantastic - but everything since has been somewhere between mediocre and bad.

It's likely they're not looking to get rich on this but punish Sega/Gearbox and open the way more easily for a class-action suit. Let's hope they win.
But who does a class action suit help? It doesn't help consumers and it doesn't help publishers.

It may not help anyone involved in this case.

What it could do, however, is show publishers that they're actually liable for claims that they make in the future.

News Comments > Thief Production Issues?
22. Re: Thief Production Issues? Apr 27, 2013, 10:58 Blackhawk
 
If you read the article and take the quote in context, it would suggest that 'lack of publisher' oversight includes both proper financial management, and ensuring that the team was working according to a viable plan.

Without that oversight they ended up going way over budget, and ended up presenting demos that only worked because they were specifically scripted to work, as opposed to working through natural gameplay. The current state of the game seems to be something very different from what they had agreed to make when they started.

There's no way to say for sure whether that is good for the final game (made it more 'old school' than planned) or bad for it (ignored plans to stick to its roots.)

Is there anything in this trailer that makes you think the game will be fun? I didn't see anything.

Er, it wasn't supposed to tell you anything about how fun the game will be. It was supposed to give you an idea of the atmosphere they're going for.

I thought it was supposed to make me want to buy the game. It didn't.

No, it was supposed to make you aware of the game, of its setting and of its style. It was supposed to stir up discussion and start the word-of-mouth process. The actual attempts to sway you to buy it will come later.

Or the domain was registered for a different reason. It was only an assumption by the fans that it was meant to be the next DLC.

Maybe it's something to do with the more recent Arena registration?

Nicely worded post by Bethesda, and yes.. now the mods can finally begin to "settle".

Redguard, Arena - I wonder if they're getting ready to update and re-issue their pre-Morrowind stuff.

Good. Now people can settle on a set of mods and not have to worry about them getting broken every couple of months by big updates.

Not buying this generation won't matter. Where it will show is when the next wave of consoles hit the shelves. If MS keeps jacking up their prices (this alone increases my cost from $100 a year to $180, if I choose to remain subscribed), and if many of the 720 rumors prove to be true, they're going to shed customers like mad.

The 'social dynamic of UO' wasn't one of its more positive traits.

Yes it was. Opinions and assholes and all that...

Precisely that.

Looks like the page has been replaced by a placeholder (but not a squatter placeholder.)

I can't imagine anyone who ended up with the rights to the name actually using it. You'd be better off coming up with something new than trying to overcome the bad press and reputation.

The term 'roguelike' has ceased to have any meaning whatsoever. It needs to be retired.

Also notice garrett's eyes. One of them is already a different color, signifying that it's mechanical.

so it can't be a reboot, but rather a continuation of the series.

This logic isn't.

Andrew Garfield wore the same color Spiderman costume as Tobey Maguire, so it can't be a reboot. What?

Yeah, if they meant for this to be a true sequel or something,

They have no such intent. They intend it to be a reboot.

The second playthrough crossed the line between 'challenging' and 'frustratingly hard.'

Can nobody make a good sequel to Thief 2?

Yes, eventually, but it likely won't be in a game with 'Thief' as the title.

If your nine year old turned out to be like that after years of being offered new variations of his most beloved dishes which then turn out to be complete rubbish then this analogy would be a little bit closer to the truth.

You missed the point. The point is that it is foolish to dismiss something as awful when, not only have you never tried it, it doesn't even actually exist yet.

It won't be a new Thief game. I know that, and it is disappointing. I still have Thief Gold and 2, plus tons of fan missions I can replay as often as I like. There is a possibility, though, that this will be a brand new game that may be fun. It may not - I don't know. It doesn't exist yet.

If it sucks, I don't lose anything. I still have the old games, and there are hundreds of games I'm not interested in. Adding one more doesn't hurt me.

If it doesn't suck - guess what? There will be a new series that I might enjoy, if for entirely different reasons than the original Thief games.

At this point I just wish they'd let Thief die a dignified death. Whatever they come up with is gonna suck.

It will not, however, be a continuation of the original Thief series. It is a reboot. Look at it that way and it may turn out to be a decent game. Look at it as Thief 4 and you're going to be disappointed.

(Personally, I'd rather have had Thief 4, as the slow, methodical gameplay is absent in today's market, but if it is completely unmarketable, they might as well use the franchise.)
