There have been times that friends/family and the media (reviewers), have commented on how much they disliked a movie, but when I saw it I ended up liking it, or ones they really liked I thought sucked. I found this to 'sometimes' hold true with video games as well.

I'll have to formulate my own opinions come tomorrow, which I will share, but either way, the game was a gift from my friend so I'm not out any money.

My goal is to go into it with an open mind and not compare it to Thief 1 or Thief 2. If I do that, then I suspect it will be a descent title on its own. Time will tell.......

I wonder this because once you gather resources to survive, build, etc., and you're essentially up and running (for a lack of better terms), then what?

Well, duh: acquire a harem and repopulate the planet.

I've been playing Rust on and off for a couple months now, and I finally started to enjoy it when I finally found a couple/few servers (w/o too many people and/or cheaters). I do understand it is still Alpha, and w/o reading all the forums and such, I'm starting to wonder the direction the development is going. I wonder this because once you gather resources to survive, build, etc., and you're essentially up and running (for a lack of better terms), then what? PVP, help or take advantage of new players logging that are trying to survive, group-up with other people and build your own fortress/town, and defend it? This is where the rest of the development will be important, because if there isn't enough content and/or objectives to keep it interesting, then it will just turn into an annoying PVP, griefing, hack-fest of a game that nobody will want to play much of.

That Verizon story is infuriating. Verizon gets paid by it's subscribers. Trying to milk the other end is just plain greed. This is only possible due to the utter lack of competition. The gov't needs to step in and regulate that shit, stat.

Agreed. For the past several months or so I've been tracking these stories of the different ISPs pulling this crap, and ironically, I've been noticing my Netflix streaming quality diminish too.

The consumers are pretty much screwed right now because there is not enough competition and not enough infrastructure to support more competition. It will be a long time until I see Google Fiber in my area.

Hopefully the government will step in to enforce 'Internet Neutrality'. It is going to interesting to see how this all plays out, and frustrating for us consumers at the same time.

No Blue, the Japanese do not count other countries. All those Asian countries are incredibly closed off, xenophobic and racist. Anyway can't wait to see PS4 explode in Japan and watch Ballmer cry his bitter, salty tears.


Generalize much? You know, I could easily say the same thing about the United States, and I wouldnt be far off the mark.

Bottom line, this is everywhere, just more prevalent in some countries.

Thanks!

SpectralMeat, the main mod you want for Thief 1 is the HD Mod by Bentraxx found here.

Hopefully you'll see this post since it is yesterday's news.

Why is that I can not find this Thief game anywhere to buy for PC on a DVD? Its all download only... and yet the consoles get their disks and PC enthusiasts don't? Wtf.

Here at Amazon. Amazing, they are charging a premium for it now as we get close to a release of the new Thief. I saw this numerous times on amazon for $9.99, and lower, several months ago.

Or here on eBay.

Or you could just STEAL it from someone.

Good luck.....


Lol, funny, but you know what I meant.

Besides I'm thinking about getting this Thief Collection for 13.99, although I already bought all these games on Steam recently. Just a little something for my game disk collection :-D, everything is digital these days, and a little less meaningful as bytes on my Hard drive.

Sweet! I know what you mean, I am a collector of Retail PC games/boxes myself. My collection starts with Wolfenstein 3D on 3.5" Disk.

For those who pre-ordered the new Thief, 'Pre-Load' is now available. Maybe it has been all along, I don't know, but I just noticed it tonight when I launched Steam.

That isn't Amazon selling it, it's someone selling it on Amazon, so I'm not surprised at the markup.
It's only $13 if you buy it used on Amazon, again from a 3rd party. Still jacked up.

Amazon has the digital copy for $6.99 http://www.amazon.com/Square-Enix-Thief-Gold-Download/dp/B009IXL5FO

Understood on 3rd parties. Thanks Beamer. $6.99 isn't too shabby for DC.

And we get to play it on the Unreal 4 Engine in all its glory. $14.99 isn't a bad price, but I'll wait for reviews. Going to keep my eye on this one.

Oh, and there was a QTE in the livestream too. I thought they removed those, but the guy needed to TAP SQUARE to move a wooden beam that was blocking his path.
I wouldn't really call that QTE, as compared to other's like the fist-fighting in Witcher2 or the stuff in other various games. I'd probably call it closer to environment interaction, but feel free to disagree.

My concern is that if the developers didn't implement this correctly and/or too much, it will break continuity in player immersive-ness. And potentially be annoying too.

I can't be the only one that preferred the original Thief games where the story was told elliptically and discovering the story through observation?

I'll see what this game has to offer, but man I am definitely enjoying Thief The Dark Project right now.

Garret, you're not alone here; Thief: The Dark Project/Gold and Thief 2: The Metal Are are on my Top 10 list of favorite games of all time. Exploration and discovery are some, of many, things that made T1 and T2 so great IMHO.

I am just starting the 'Mage Towers' level; 'not' one of my favorite levels, but I'm interested to see what Bentraxx did for it with his HD Mod.

It's very possible that the game simply IS this good. I haven't played it, so I can't judge it. The videos make it look pretty decent, if also fairly standard pew pew pew hitscan multiplayer fare.

However, Drew McCoy, the publisher who is going to be publishing your game is absolutely very well known for paying people for positive opinions (or making it nigh impossible to give a negative one.) In fact, they are in the news for such horseshit just about once a month.

So for you to get all uppity and pretend like you work for some kind of bastion of game virtue is really quite amusing. Why do people suspect that opinions on your game have been bought? Well, because it's happened before, frequently, and because gamers are getting a bit tired of constantly being lied to by the shitheels that infest this industry.

This is the environment you work in, an environment that many of your fellow workers in this industry helped foster. Welcome to the real world.


Here here! Well said.

He purchased the Xbox360 Version. Do you think it will look better on PS4 in comparison, or not enough to notice that much?

If that video was from the PC version, then it won't look any better at all on the PS4. Obviously everything just gets the same shitty textures that the 360/PS3 will get.

Also, happy early birthday, MD

I'll have to bust my friends balls on the texture/video quality. Grin

Thank you much for Birthday wish.
