Why not do a spiritual successor?
That's like doing a spiritual successor to Duke Nukem or Commander Keen. It's "them" or nothing.

The reviews certainly are not painting a picture of a great game...
The Article:
Pros

+ Strong Stealth Elements
+ Engaging Plot
+ Enough collectibles to satisfy your inner magpie
+ Good graphics
+ Excellent atmosphere with some truly tense moments
What's wrong with that?

The game really is starting to look rather mediocore to say the least. It will probably be another game that's gameplay is let down by a restrictive story that is nothing special or new. Hopefully it is more open world and less story driven but, who knows. The story doesn't really appeal to me at the point in time - movies do the whole revenge thing way better than any game can.

Regional pricing is immoral?

For digital downloads, it is pretty messed up when it's $60 here but then sells for the equivalent of $80 or even more in the U.K. or Australia. VAT accounts for some of the difference in the U.K. and Europe, but not all of it, and Australia doesn't really have any set reason as to why it's so much more and have brought it up even in government to inquire as to why they're being charged as much as they are (although I have no idea what, if anything, came of that).


Government changed so I don't think anything was followed up.

uggh, the embedded Youtube video everyone hates...

If any news deserves a video that takes over the front page, it's DLC for COD: Ghosts!
I wonder how many bitcoins Blue got for this

Couldn't have said it better than the comment below. I'm right before the last chapter now and only now I know the city like the back of my hand. Before that, it was horror.
Often play games where you instantly know the map?

Not sure about you but when playing a game I don't actually know a map until having played it. Remembering more bits of it as I go along...

I wish I never heard about SEO.
Usually pisses me off just thinking about it.

I hate how that has turned into this weird sham advertising sub-market for flailing 20 somethings. Scamming Google professionally and subverting peoples search for knowledge, what a career.
It's all Online Marketing now and Google Adwords. $nline $arketing.

You can charge more for it than development.

I'm DESPERATE to get out of the Web development industry. Bunch of stupid fucks selling to stupid fucks, making shit.

Jumping? or lack thereof. Pretty big problem for a protagonist involved in one of the most dexterous professions...
How many games cant you jump in these days? you can get to everywhere you need to get to easily and more. Do you need to bunny hop up the street? I know, I know but thats no reason to bag a game, come on.

Yes please.

Why do people say the Gunplay is like COD, when its not? Not on the PC any way.

Neither is the player movement, thank god. It doesn't feel anything like the usual Source game from valve either.
Thank god, those games are generally awful... got nuffin on id tech

Both have Quake engines as ancestors.
Should I have said id tech 5?, I should have, shouldn't have I since that is what I meant, I'm sorry. Obviously the old id tech is dated.

Have you even played the game? Whether it is Thief or not a Thief game, there is A LOT wrong with it!

Apart from the voices that randomly appear/repeat, what?

Pretty standard practice to lay off most of the staff after a project has been shipped, and even more common when reviews are not up to par. This is why the gaming industry can kiss my ass as far as I'm concerned.
If that's the case they should lay off the people whose direction resulted in the sub par reviews. Not the people implementing their will. But that doesn't happen as often as it should.
To be fair you can not please a fan boy who's love was a game in the late 90's, as a fan boy with a game in the late 90's its just not going to happen because this period was golden... at least we remember it that way.

The fan boy reviews passed off as objective and professional are a joke and do more damage than the suits.

As a game, there is little wrong with Thief, it's main problem is being called Thief. If it wasn't called Thief, it's main problem would not being called Thief.

Fuck game review fanboys.

You can manually drop from ledges and you can take fall damage. The problem is that the game isn't consistent with how these things work. Sometimes you can just walk off a ledge, other times you have to press X. Same with jumps. Sometimes you'll automatically jump when running towards a ledge, other times you'll just fall off. In AC, these things were consistent. If you ran towards a ledge, you would always jump off, even if there was nothing to jump to. And if you weren't running, you would always stop when reaching a ledge. Consistency is key. It doesn't matter if it's first-person or third-person.
True it could be more consistent especially with the running and jumping, that's a bit annoying that one. But the falling I don't really have an issue with as you can tell straight away if you need to press x or not. Calling AC consistent is funny, he doesn't always do things consistently at all - grabbing on to all sorts of things instead of what you intended, "What are you doing" is something I often shout at the monitor Never had that problem with Thief, just "ugh, cant run and jump to that one..."
