Thief at 15

Rock, Paper, Shotgun notes yesterday marks 15 years since Thief: The Dark Project shipped (thanks nin), which checks with the Wikipedia, but I think I'll trust our archive from that time that it was actually 15 years ago today, which was a Tuesday. Either way, it's been that long since the release of the stealth classic. In other gaming history, it was 16 years ago today that QUAKE II went gold, and 14 years ago today that QUAKE III Arena went gold, a stark example of how much quicker game development was back in the day. And it was 10 years ago today that X²: The Threat arrived in North American and Australian stores. Rounding out the anniversaries, it was nine years ago today that Painkiller: Battle Out Of Hell shipped, kicking off that series.

Deadly Shadows.... really.... Weird how different some peoples takes are. I thought that game had excellent art-direction with their lighting and color. Beyond that, it was hardly a Thief game. Fuck Deadly Shadows. Fuck its bugs, fuck its lack of rope arrows, fuck its loading times and sub-divided maps, fuck its in-engine cutscenes and their lack of continuity in artistic vision, and fuck its shitty plot that turned Garrett from an amazing anti-hero into a messiah for a unnecessarily over-dramatic plot. Everything about that game ruined Thief for me. Viva la Dishonored.

Though I still tip my hat to you for your Red Dwarf sig quote. Smoke me a kipper, et al.

Deadly Shadows is still the best. Two words, Shalebridge Cradle.

Dizam, gangsta! Get yo hate on! Well, to each their own. Some fair criticisms I warrant, but the pros outweighed the cons for me.
