I don't remember Thief 3 being well-received by purists at all. They hated the (optional) third-person camera, the removal of the rope arrow, the smaller levels, the new item glint, the lockpicking changes, the fact that the game was developed for consoles, etc. The only positive thing I hear purists say about Thief 3 is about the Shalebridge Cradle level.

I'd have to agree; you're pretty much spot on there Jerykk.

IMO, T3:DS was the worst one, and I 'predict' Thief 4 may be better than T3:DS was and/or wanted to be.

I'm pleased about this because I think Eidos Montreal is filled with hacks and idiots who don't understand the original games, and that goes for DX:HR too.

I'm happy because somewhere, jerykk is crying. And that's a wonderful, wonderful thing...

NIN, you killed me with this. I literally had tears from laughing so hard...have trouble finishing this post because I am still laughing. Oh, that was good.....Best post of the month!

Nothing against you Jerykk, it just struck me funny.

I remember Quake being the first FPS with free-look, but you had to hold a key down. So, I used a cap from a Bic pen and wedged the tip of it between the key that was bound to free-look and another key so free-look was on all the time.

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'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.
