Well sure it does!

I hear everything has Rift support, it's great to know since there isn't a release date for the Rift yet.

My point was that within the next 5-10 years where will these consoles be in terms of performance if they are having issues running games on today's standard resolution.
Sony and Microsoft made these consoles to last nearly 10 years, but I am having a really hard seeing that happen with the current hardware specs these machines have.

Yep. They got the ram right but totally blew raw performance.

On the other end of the spectrum you have the die-hard Thief "fans" who have been swearing up and down that the game was going to suck for YEARS. These guys are so invested in their own opinion that they are psychologically incapable of enjoying the game.

Seriously that's the truth. It's weird with games like this, it's like you have to fall in line with the cult thinking to a tee or you simply aren't allowed to speak. (When going to Thief Forum turf)

What planet are you from Red? People loved Thief 3. It was a great followup to the first 2 from story to mechanics/gameplay.

Ah no, overall it was panned by the Thief purists. I did enjoy it myself. I'll still wait for more insight in the next couple days. But the writer stating what they did actually did say something.

No, it was very well received. There will always be pockets of noisy angry people who make waves because they can.

Thief 3 improved upon the original formula in all ways without eviscerating what made the originals compelling, and that sentiment was by far the largest piece of the opinionated pie at the time.

You and me liked it! That's good. It just isn't the shiznits to those that talk Thief as religion, you can go to Thief forums today, it's still being bitched about.

I rank them 2 - 3 - 1. I liked all of them, Thief 1 doesn't hold up for me in terms of tripped out level design and ideas. It was a sign of the times back then.

Glad to hear it. Been tinkering with the alpha off and on, and something just doesn't feel right. I'm not sure what it is, but it didn't pull me in as I was hoping it would. The videos they release make it look great.

Yeah they seem to be using the EA theme to give us one small area, to play over and over with the new changes see how it is fairing. Instead of giving us more game as they go. You play it once or a couple times, the only reason I log in after patch is to play a little bit to see if I can see/feel the changes.

Starbound is the only early access I've done so far and I won't be doing it again precisely for the reasons we've mentioned.

I know you've done some Kickstarters, same thing? With EA at least you have something to give to the public as Kickstarers are usually less mature.

Everyone tore apart Dark Messiah but that is a fav of mine, and I get some DM and Dishonored vibes from Thief. I am looking forward to digging into this game and seeing what's wrong.

Yeah, now it's like we listen to published reports, when last week we said we didn't. I'll give it it raises concern, but I'll wait until a couple days and see what the players think.

Dark M is now looked at by many as a very fun game and wished there were more.

I wasn't buying Thief until I heard from the people, almost like every other game, they tell me here to do my research and if I make a mistake it is my fault if I don't, so I do. I can show patience.

And now seems to be the time if I wanted a big budget game to get Black Flag at near half off, all patched up and ready to roll.

Then you have the Stick of Truth, but $60 is impossible to swallow for me.

There hasn't been a Thief game (including mods) that I haven't liked, my gut still tells me this will still be fun, but we'll see. Maybe it does suck something terrible. What I chuckle at the most is "it sucks" then "I'll wait until is costs ______ to get it". Hey if it sucks I don't want it given to me, my backlog doesn't allows for sucky games to be played at any cost.

"That's what I did with DayZ; I've done it twice now"

Made a bundle never finishing? This probably will be good for the game long term, get some finished products. And I get wanting to go home, with the stock pile of green backs.

Love downhill, love that it is a challenge and there are a lot of wipes.

Do they nerf other events in the Olympics like they do with Ski Jumping? In the Olympics they don't even jump half as far as those that go after the World Record.

Now, as to why people who didn't back this game even whined about it being split up into two parts, that just goes beyond all concepts of logic and/or reasoning, but Tim Schafer should have just shrugged and said "Whatever."

So, sorry. If you didn't put up money to help make the game, you are not important. You don't get to have a say. You can choose to either buy the game once it's done, or you can choose to not buy it, and that's all you'll ever get to do.

Don't like it?

A consumer always has a say and their opinion if one chooses to listen to it, that is their prerogative. I guess EA could say "Everyone shut up you don't have a say, we funded this completely ourselves". We still will give them our say and opinion. We've been doing that for decades.

Looking at it righteously, I do think kickstarters should have some benefit. Most likely those are closed forums where they could give feedback... a beni. Possibly play beta games... another beni. Perhaps some in game goodies.

I feel in a righteous world, there should be a point where everyone at some point becomes an equal customer of a game. If not, their choice, but you then have classes of customers and expect some not to be happy when they see they are 2nd class, right or wrong. Everyone will still have their say and opinion like always. No company is excluded from that.

He must have got a hold of some bad LSD, woke up and realized he can find haters on the internet. The only way around it... don't read it. Hello? Go back and read only Kickstarter replies if you need the warm and fuzzies to make it through another day.
