    OMG OMG OMG YESYESYES

    This is so good. Really astute, thorough analysis by someone who really knows what he's talking about.

    This is the kind of article we need more of: true in-depth...

    Definitely one of my favorite side-bits in the game. Distinct atmosphere, great flavor text, lovely environmental storytelling. A very personal touch all around.

    Wish more of the game felt that...

    He seems to be a pretty private person. I remember when we had that lovely community-thank-you project for his work on the series. Someone posted his response, which I believe included the request...

    When I met him earlier this year, he spoke to me as Garrett, and sounded pretty much the same as he did in the earlier games. Maybe a little bit gruffer. The voice in the trailer is definitely him.

    And good riddance.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again:

    EM should give the Thief license to a smaller studio, one without the massive overhead and global market aspirations of their parent...

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    After taking a break from the forums for a while to focus on less depressing things, I got wind of the Thief 3 Gold fix (which sounds amazing) and came back to check out what...

    Man, seeing this, hearing what might have been - it's giving me a whole lot of feels...

    No, definitely not SR's best performance, but what can you expect with him reading nuThief's excuse for...
  8. The problem is that both of these things have...

    The problem is that both of these things have been said, multiple times, by the devs. I think that's what resulted in such a wildly uneven game. There were folks on the team who really wanted a super...

    Man, I'm telling you, after both Prometheus and The Hobbit movies, I promised myself I would never let my expectations get too high again. But I just couldn't help it with Thief. I wanted so badly...

    Or, you know, just...poop. That ending was the final turd on the turd-cake that was this game's story. I specifically avoided this thread because I was afraid I couldn't keep in my bile regarding the...

    100% agreed. I value the differing opinions granted by being individual, unique humans, but I am truly boggled by the group claiming this tripe is better than DS . I feel like they're throwing good...

    This is precisely the mindset one needs to put money into Kickstarter. You're 100% right about it not being a pre-purchase - it's more like investing in a piece of theater, risk-wise. You put your...

    Well, the distinction is really just academic. If the developers are competent/reputable and enough people fund it, you'll receive your game (outside of a natural disaster, economic collapse or...

    Someone mentioned in another thread the idea of a kickstarted Thief game made by fans/ex-LGS, and hiring Stephen Russell for it. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    Very well put. You're right: it's not that the game is focused on telling a story, it's the manner in which that story is told.

    AAA cinematic storytelling can work wonders, but you need someone...

    Whoooo, doggy. Okay. I have finally finished the game (i.e, all the side quests, etc, not just the main narrative.) Clocked in at 40 hours all told. I let it sit for a few weeks so I could let my...

    I just want them to give the license to a smaller studio and leave Garrett alone. He doesn't belong in a media-saturated, AAA hype machine.

    This game made me (and still makes me) so unhappy...

    Yeah, this quote literally makes me want to vomit. I appreciate the difficult position Roy was put in - lead producer less than a year away from release - but I wish he would stop making these...

    ...who can't seem to remove the smell of the river from their noses, no matter where they are in the city.

    It's an epidemic of loose teeth caused by sewage in the riverwater!

    Agreed. Also agree with OP regarding overall disappointment. This was the one time in the entire game I can remember actually laughing and enjoying a bit of levity.

    I've mentioned this elsewhere,...

    Now that the game is out and we've all played it, I wonder if we could dig back into this issue, which was sort of unaddressed at the time.

    It seems to me that the game was designed for the last...

    It seems the game just fulfilled his incredibly low expectations for a AAA reboot of a classic property. Hard to get too angry when you expect it to be soulless and you turn out to be right.

    This precise situation has occurred more than once and is just as bad as it sounds.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience? Wondering if this is widespread enough that they may patch it down the...

    The point isn't that they all do the same thing all the time. The point is that each one is the only option at certain locations, and there is never a clear way to tell which is which. You don't even...
