That will be a sad day for us all for sure when the time comes. It really is like losing a member of the family. Every time I go through losing a pet I say I am never having another one but always break down and do it again.

It's heartbreaking to lose a pet, but the joy you get out of having one is so much more than worth it. It's a month of grief for the 8-10 years of joy, love and happiness they give you.

@ Capella & Creston: I couldn't have said it better myself, so I won't try.

I have a 12 year old Siberian Husky and a Golden Retriever that is few months away from her 12th year. Late in her 11th year, my Golden is still as eager to play ball now as she was when she was a puppy, but over the past year(+) I've noticed her slowing down with a hiccup in her giddy-up as old age sets in, and it is breaking my heart because I know it will only get worse as time progresses. But man do I love her spirit, as it still doesn't stop her from wanting to fetch that ball. Dogs are so stoic, so you never really know how much pain they are really in.

If there are seriously people refusing to even give The Dark Mod a try simply because it's based around fan missions instead of an "official" story arc, I can only strongly assert that they're missing out.

The vast majority of the 1000+ Thief/Thief 2 missions released to date have little to nothing to do with the original story, and I don't mean stinkers -- I'm talking about the highest rated big missions and campaigns. That is in of course in part because fans who can produce such work invariably have creativity and will of their own and want to distinguish their work.

TDM now has something like 70+ maps. A good chunk of them are campaigns and series. It's got more than one story; it's got many! Just like T1/T2 FMs. But I guess if you're not into playing FMs then that's a problem of a different type (not knowing or accepting that a great many of them are better than original missions, and sometimes land the authors in game Dev jobs...)

Anyway. You're missing out!

I was hesitant about playing TDM FMs, but once I gave them a try, I was pleasantly surprised how good they actually were/are. Granted, some are better than others, but overall, I like what I've experienced so far.....quite impressed actually.

For those wanting to get classic Thief joneses, try The Dark Mod, a free, standalone Thief mod of the Doom 3 engine.

NICE! It has been a while since I have toyed around with this mod, but it looks to have made great strides since. This team is awesome and I am glad they are still going strong.

Wow, it HAS been a while since I've messed with The Dark Mod, as it is it's own stand alone game as of recent and no longer requires Doom 3 to play it. Check out the video, "What is The Dark Mod?" I know what I'll be doing after work today. ;-)

For those Thief 1/Gold fans, a forthcoming HD texture mod is shaping up nicely, and tentatively due to release this December, is Thief Gold HD Texture mod.

Amazon Video Games
For those of you who pre-order the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle—don’t worry—you will still be getting your Playstation 4 (without Watch Dogs) based on your current delivery estimate. We are adjusting the orders now and will update you once we know more.


Grin....I'm sure everyone is glad they posted that useful tid bit of information, as I thought for sure they would delay shipment of the PS4 until Watch Dogs was ready to ship. Wall


and why would they do that? they have stocks of ps4s, they have orders in hand for them. just ship. it would be monumentally boneheaded of them to just sit on a stack of consoles for six months waiting for a game. and amazon is the least boneheaded of any major corp that i can think of.

I was being sarcastic....... Wall

Hopefully they’ll use that extra time to add a key toggle for 1st person/3rd person - ala Fallout 3 - and I’ll be all over this. I’m no programmer, but I wouldn’t think that would be too difficult to implement, would it?

Okay, so The Walking Dead's 'Season Premier' kicked off last night; other than some of the cheesy dialogue in the beginning of the episode, it wasn't too bad.

Gamepad and trackpad in one. Still inferior to kb/m, imnsho. However, if PC games can be developed for this controller without compromising traditional PC game controls/interface/customizability at all... it's all good.

News Comments > Thief Gameplay Trailer
25. Re: Thief Gameplay Trailer Oct 9, 2013, 18:50 MajorD
 

Weak! The more I see of this, the worse it seems to get. Graphics look nice, but that is all I'll give it. I don't know if it is the way the trailer was edited or what, but the voice acting is terrible; it felt too forced and disjointed.

So sad, as when the game was announced, I was very much looking forward to it, but definitely not anymore. They screwed up when they ran with their own artistic license and classifying it as a 'reboot', in lieu of just holding true to what made the original (T1 & T2) so appealing and successful.

Who exactly is the target demographic for this? No way it'll be priced within the console range.

The Alienware crowd maybe?

I wouldn't be so sure about that. My guess is they'll have a target price out the gate based on projected volumes (high), which will be very attractive in comparison to comparable PCs on the market and/or a hobby-build, in addition to next gen Consoles. I'm sure they've done plenty of their homework to achieve this.

Thanks man. I forgot about TB.

I don't know, It looks like BF3 with 'some' enhancements/improvements, and probably isn't enough for me to jump on it. The jury is still out, but with the way they have the whole money grab calculated with the DLC via the 'Digital Deluxe Package' and 'Premium Subscription' and all their other cunning marketing ploys, that may be enough to make me pass on it.

Sweet! This worked for my retail copy, and I was able to get the two DLCs (Protector Trials and Minerva's Den).

Thank you 2K Games!
