    Thanks, EM, for killing the Thief franchise.

    Of course, you know if that's really what it's all about, there would never have been a Thief franchise in the first place. Like when writing a story, you should never write for your audience - you...

    I won't be buying it. The game being released is nothing like the game I joined up here (three years ago now) hoping to contribute to the moulding of, and hoping to buy. It is plain to see now that...

    1. With the nerfing of the attach-to-anywhere-that-is-wooden rope arrow, which elements of your game do you believe invoke that sense of exploration and player agency that the original mechanic...

    I love the rope arrow, because it highlights how lazy and ridiculously tragic this reboot's development is when it cannot match the complexity of a ten year old game's implementation of the same...

    I read the article over the weekend in the supermarket whilst the other half did grocery shopping. It didn't take me very long. Suffice to say, I was left with the impression that PCGamer paid for...

    All this after an SE executive announcing a strategy to engage with the fans with regular updates, for a change. I assume D'Astous did not like that part of the strategy, either.

    OK I have to say it - Garrett looks like he has a lazy eye from that image. A 'derp' as the internet would have it.

    My question is regarding the 'next-gen' AI that has to be developed to make this a viable purchase.

    How does Thief 4 implement and effectively convey player silhouettes in AI visual detection...

    Vintage Garrett?
  12. Another thought, coming back to that earlier...

    Another thought, coming back to that earlier quote; saying that the next gen consoles are helping them 'beef up the AI' - if it is imperative that they improve the AI in the next-gen, they are going...

    Kind of a token gesture, at best, in light of previous comments on AI.

    I think that compasses are required to orient players in the event where Garrett overhears guards talk about the 'northern' etc. part of the map. If you don't have a compass, you are then required to...

    I was thinking about the statement that Garrett's new eye is closely tied in with the story; and thus Focus mode is closely tied in with the eye. It implies that 'expert' players who turn focus off...

    Actually, this presents an opportunity for EM to do away with the mocap scenes and get SR in for the current-gen voiceovers. /slowpoke

    Metroid Prime: Trilogy.

    My partner has had a Wii for ages. I had dismissed it for being a child's toy, and for all its accessible titles, but gave it a chance because my PC is ageing and the Xbox...

    Of course. I'd rather Thief 4 wasn't a 'tripleA' title, but we can't do anything about that other than shouting for a 'next-gen' Dark Mod kickstarter that does exactly what the majority hope they...

    Despite how moronic windwalker's post just sounded, he somehow managed to grasp the point. Thief 4 is 'consolized' and thus, an abridged version of what could actually be possible were the target...

    You obviously haven't read the AI thread. A link from there will take you to a lengthy and informative discussion on the state of modern AI, as well as an interesting statement from Mr....

    1. Yes I did read the rest of the post. You aren't particularly critical there. Is there something I missed?
    2. That's great, except the opportunity wasn't advertised and so any subsequent analysis...

    Hardly an indictment.

    I'd be far more interested in a Q+A thread like this if Schmidt had the testicular fortitude to ask the CM to start one for members to post to him directly, instead of him...

    Of course, that's a great idea to contextualise the commentaries based on the game difficulty choice. The problem is that I fail to see a development team who believe that QTEs are a good idea...

    Viktoria, unfortunately QTEs mean that you have to follow on-screen prompts - or die. QTEs were probably introduced to alleviate the boredom of cutscenes in this last gen. However, lazy development...

    Why? Because they are a staple of the safe, accessible tripe-A 'product' (which I hear games referred to as standard these days by not only publishers, but developers) and will not be removed from...
