My hopes are not high. Looks more like Dishonored II than Thief. Next they'll be making him Jamaican and calling it 'Teef'.




I've seen at least 2-3 Bluesers (X7, MajorD, and I forget who else) who steam says has bought it, so I'm looking forward to your opinions, both good and bad...

Yup, a friend of mine and I are huge Thief (1 & 2) fans, so he preordered a console version for himself (TAFFER!) and wanted to purchase the PC version for me for my Level-Up day.

I've been very critical and skeptical about this game, but last week Blue posted a non edited PC play through vid that was actually pretty good (other than 'some' of the dumb AI) and has changed my tune a bit and 'possibly' sold me. I still think the game will be good on its own right, but will not be a true successor to the first two. So, I am going in with an open mind and will post my thoughts (good and bad) sometime next week after a few hours of play.

I've liked it quiet a bit but not sure I'll drop the money for the game at launch.

A few of my friends pretty much said the same thing. They said it was fun, but weren't sure for how long, so were on the fence.

For me, it hasn't really grabbed me enough to even pursue downloading the demo, so I can't make any fair judgment.

Rage was the video game equivalent of the Myspace pose. At just the right angle even the ugliest fattest slob can look stunning. That was Rage. An ugly fat slob of a game that only looked good from a distance.

Good from far, far from good.

I wish there was some gameplay in that "gameplay" video.

Grin....yeah, really! It doesn't look too violent or gory either.

I didn't realize until this morning that the Developer, MachineGames, is made-up from some of the key people from Starbreeze Studios, who developed the Riddick game series and Darkness.....

4. Re: Verizon seeks payment for carrying Netflix traffic Feb 19, 2014, 10:14 MajorD
 

I've been streaming Netflix for a while now and have noticed a slow decrease in video quality over the past year or less now. Verizon FiOS is my ISP. Not too long ago (several months or so), my friend who lives in the Great Northwest, was telling me that he had been observing the same thing via his ISP (Cox).

It won't be long until they start complaining about Amazon's streaming as that gains popularity as well.

Now, if only Google Fiber was available in my area. Maybe that will wake up these other ISPs.

I just hope that in future releases, EA learns from past mistakes and gives us a more polished product before releasing to the public.

I think I recall that comment being made when BF3 was released with a good amount of issues/bugs.

As a lot of people have said here numerous times, things won't really change until people start voting with their wallets. BF3 was an awesome and fun game that I enjoyed many hours of, but when they announced BF4, with all the issues in BF3 not even being fully address/corrected yet, that's where I said EA/DICE can go @#&? themselves and shove their 'Premium' subscription BS up there arses!

Hmmmm, the gameplay doesnt really look that inspiring...sort of what would happen if you mixed a Michael Bay movie with Call of Duty. Should be a real hit though.

Yeah, a friend of mine is all excited about this, but I am kind of meh about it right now, as from what I have seen and read so far hasn't really enticed me. But heck, maybe it will end up being a lot of fun. /shrug

Not from what I've been seeing and reading.

EA, who you trying to convince, us or yourselves?

I thought this was the 4th thief game? Why do they say it's the 3rd?

Because 'Thief: Deadly Shadows' didn't stay true to the series, so it doesn't count. Some people liked DS, most didn't. Depending how this new Thief pans out, it may end up not counting as 3rd or 4th installment.

So I was playing Thief 1 Gold during the past weekend, beat the first mission on Expert. Felt good man, felt good.

I'm up to and just started 'Mage Towers' over the weekend. Been doing this play through with HD Texture mod.

News Comments > Dying Light Trailer Teased a New Trailer

I wasn't very impressed with the 'Dead Island' series. It did have a lot of strengths, but overall the game was pretty weak IMHO; however, it looks like they are really striving to improve upon things in Dying Light. Been keeping an eye on this one....

Chrome Engine 6 is looking good too, but we'll have to wait and see if it is still quirky/buggy/clunky.

I can even see them going DOTA2 route and being F2P with just having to buy lots of extra hunters/monsters.

That was my thought as well. Give it away for free/cheap and then DLC the fuck out of it...

Kind of like 'the free fish' scenario.

Yeah this could be tons of fun. One thing to consider though, (its mentioned in an off-hand way in the RPS preview) apparently there are hints the game will feature tons of DLC in the guise of 'new' monsters and hunters...

To me this sounds like a potential recipe for disaster...

Good to know. Now that you mention that, they mention fighting 'a' monster in YouTube video description. If they use that whole DLC money grab, I agree that is a potential recipe for disaster, and would be a no interest for me.

Yeah, X3 on being disappointed there was no gameplay, but it does look like the potential is there to be a lot of fun. I guess it is using the 4th generation of the CryEngine too. Look forward to seeing some actual game play though.....

If you are not watching True Detective on HBO you should be! Damn what an awesome episode last night!!

I've been enjoying it as well. A couple/few scenes with Matthew McConaughey were a bit self-indulgent, but it is a really good series so far.

I've had coloured keyboards but I've found only the red led isn't distracting and helps. Seeing as I always eat and drink at my keyboard I destroy them pretty fast so now silicone covers are far more important to me.

Makes sense. There's a reason cockpits have red lighting - your eyes have more red cones and can therefore see better in less red light. In order to see well in blue light, it needs to be brighter and will blow out your night vision.

Part of the reason why I hate the damn blue LEDs on everything. Yeah, I like blue much more than red, but in the dark those blue LEDs are blinding.

Heh, the stereo I put in my Jeep has two light modes - Red and Blue. I never use the blue because it's absolutely blinding at night. On a CAR stereo. Hello, genius designer, what was the point of including the blue LEDs? Oh, they're more visible in the day. Too bad switching the light mode involves using the remote to dig 6 layers deep into a menu.

Oh, and the default mode is blue. Because...they want people to crash?

Yeah, that sounds like some bad designing. At least give the user a quick button at the main menu to quickly switch between the two (Blue / Red).

As long as the sound is good while you're crashing, I guess that is all they thought/cared about.

Well at least they are honest about it, most other devs would have shut the fuck up and done the exact same thing anyway...

Yeah, so I guess that makes it okay then.


.....In my book honesty > bullshit everytime.

Agreed.
