  1. Poll: The leaked early trailer with Russell's voice...

    The leaked early trailer with Russell's voice really highlights the weakness in Romano Orzari.
    It's not just the weak material he has to work with. There's a generic, unexceptional quality to his...

    Certainly didn't take long for the five entire people who enjoyed this game to slave away at the great big grindstone called 'revisionism'.

    People didn't complain about the Focus ability...

    ...they complained that the entire game was built around the Focus ability.

    ...and Eidos Montréal didn't even remotely correct that problem....

    So, wait...

    Eidos Montréal opens this forum in May of 2009, asks the fans for feedback... ultimately disregards literally all of it in a failed attempt to cash in on the Skyrim / Dishonored...

    My guess would be 'not well'.

    And the reason why is simple:
    We had one story about the game being on top of the sales charts - for one week - in the UK only.
    After that? Zilch. Not one story...
  6. Hey, I feel the exact same way. Deadly Shadows is...

    Hey, I feel the exact same way. Deadly Shadows is my second-favorite in the series. Superb game with a few issues (but all the games had their technical flaws).



    The problem, of course, is...

    Not actually true. There was a Hammer Haunt beneath the Mechanist Seminary during the Eavesdropping mission. And of course in Gervaisius' Mansion, there was 'The Library'. Zombies even made a brief...

    ...in the UK. The (very, very, very distant) second-largest gaming market in the world. A place that worships at the altar of Sony. They bought PS4 like it was a toaster. And now they have nothing to...

    Can't wait for that hack.
    Adding in body awareness, and an entire set of third-person animations... then neglecting to actually give us a button-toggle to actually switch to third-person was a bit...

    I've played both the PS4 and Xbox 360 versions.

    Strangely enough, the loading times are significantly shorter on 360 (Maybe it's the texture compression?).
    The only 'downgrade' on the 360...

    Completely agree.

    You can really tell this game was passed from one group of developers to another. And the main attribute that gives it away are all the redundant game mechanics. Things that...

    I think the game's greatest sin is that - whereas Deus Ex: Human Revolution was steeped in passion and love for the previous two DX titles - I don't get any of that sense while playing Thief. A few...

    Not once... in that entire interview... does he flat-out say Dishonored has the same audio propagation as Thief. In fact, he outright admits that it doesn't. And if he claimed otherwise... he would...

    Oh? Really?
    So, without X-Ray vision... you can crouch behind a box and ascertain where enemies are based purely on the sound of their footsteps, then? Because I've played through three times and...

    Strikes me as fanboy whimpering.
    Dishonored and Thief suffer from identical problems:

    -Lack of a viable way to locate enemies without x-ray vision
    -ZERO sound propagation (ties into the first...

    Sequel or no... I can smell the 'Overpriced Erin DLC' coming from a block away.

    Unfortunately, Romano isn't relegated to voicing just Garrett, I believe. I recall seeing him do mocap for guards before in a developer interview, and playing the game has confirmed it: He voices at...

    After enduring Romano Orzari's performance for about 7 hours, now... I would have to differ with you. And I think the professional reviewers have covered fairly extensively why Romano was a bad call...

    I'm not so sure it would be that easy, actually. It's fairly obvious just looking at the game that the engine is a bit slapped together. Framerate drops even on PS4 and Xbox One, post-launch game...

    Yeah, a real shame the fans haven't been telling them these were major problems for over a year or anything.

    I mean, what's the worst that could happen? The former head of the studio effectively...

    The voice actor they cast doesn't work, either. I literally cannot envision Stephen Russell - on his worst possible day - being worse than this guy. I mean, this performance as Garrett is on-par with...

    One of the most commonly-recurring complaints? Romano Orzari's voice acting!
    Wonder of wonders.

    Now, if only the Thief fans had made a petition... 8 months ago... to fix that problem... with...

    Really?
    No one's going to mention the obvious?
    Okay. Here goes.
    You can almost never hear enemy footsteps.

    Suddenly, including that intrusive eyesore that is Focus Mode is making a lot of...

    Given the exasperatingly-long loading times?
    I'll go out on a limb and say the game having a jimmy-rigged engine with a glut of junk code may have something to do with it.
