They had ONE job.

Next you'll be telling me it's 2 hours long with 1.55 of those hours being bad anime cutscenes.

I never had high hopes for this game.

Watched something on IGN that shows how u can disable all the hand holding, including checkpoints, for old school Thief experience. As for everything else, I'd wait for the actual game to make a final judgment

It won't, there is too much loading when going through doors. Mind you, loading times when entering buildings...

I second this. I can forgive bad level design and AI. But it's the sex scenes that make or break this game.

Dont care about sex scenes in games, if i want watch stuff like that i just watch some porn movie. The game does not look that terrible from what i seen. I keep my pre-order thank you.

From the minute I originally saw the game awhile back I wrote it off.

There are just too many new and original games coming out I am far more interested in than a needless reboot of a series that hasn't been good in decades.

Ok man, you've been warned.

didn't have any expectations anyways

#14 Posted by lostrib (37007 posts) -

Weren't people bitching about this game being dumbed down a while ago?

#15 Posted by Xaero_Gravity (8740 posts) -

Still taking my chances, hopefully it doesn't bite me in the ass.

#16 Posted by IMAHAPYHIPPO (2582 posts) -

@Gargus: A game coming out the February after a next-gen launch is capitalizing on desperate gamers who have nothing to play (yes, I know it's coming to ps3 360). It's the same reason Tomb Raider DE wouldn't have been successful outside of January. If this game was something worth seeing, it would come out over the summer or later.

What other games is it to play until Dark Souls 2 come?:P

#22 Edited by HEB86 (10 posts) -

It must be the Xb1 version

Only our hermit uninspiredcup making the argument that consoles dumbed this game down. It may or it may not have, but I'd argue multiplat & cross gen, mainly XB1 development is a bigger concern.

#24 Edited by MrYaotubo (2694 posts) -

Regardless of what it ends up being I don´t think anyone was expecting the greatness of the first two games wich are all time greats material,especially Thief 2: The Metal Age wich is arguably still the best stealth game ever made.

#25 Edited by kalipekona (2299 posts) -

I think Thief is still going to be a great game. I've seen enough for myself to be reasonably sure of that.

#26 Posted by kalipekona (2299 posts) -

@Gargus

Oh, please. The first Thief came out in 1998 which isn't even two decades ago. Thief Deadly Shadows came out in 2004 and was a great game.

Then again you are an idiot cow with crappy taste in games.

#27 Posted by MirkoS77 (7499 posts) -

Eh. Still getting it, I have a GS Powerup rewards coupon I need to use.

AI was braindead in the originals also.

#28 Posted by Ballroompirate (22915 posts) -

Still no desire to get it, I might wait for a price drop but tell then I'll pass on it, way too many games are coming out in March.

#29 Edited by MirkoS77 (7499 posts) -

Watched a bit of the Twitch feed. Honestly, I was expecting worse. If the Neogaf thread is anything to go by, you'd assume ET for the Atari 2600 were being streamed. The worst I saw was a guard not noticing a flame being extinguished by a water arrow near him. Immersion breaking, but not game breaking.

It amazes me how quickly people are to jump on any negative point to be able to immediately declare, "worst game evarrrrzzzz!!!!", cancelling preorders and coming to conclusions without even giving it a chance. Way to think for yourselves, guys.....

I don't see this scoring above an 8 or so, but I still think it'll be somewhat decent. No game's perfect. But man, I've never seen such a degree of bad PR and gamer animosity towards any game before its release. It's like people WANT to hate it. If this didn't have the Thief name behind it, I doubt the hate would be there.

I feel for these people. It must be very hard for them to enjoy games. Many look back at the originals and seem to forget they were lacking in certain areas as well.

As I predicted the elitists are way too stupid to navigate a simple menu.

#33 Posted by donalbane (16346 posts) -

I'm into stealth games, so I'm still down. It doesn't have to be game of the year for me to enjoy it.

so its like ac game? why is that bad?

#35 Posted by Slimmin360 (1480 posts) -

I hate topics like this, NO ONE can judge a game before it's released and official reviews are posted.....and even then it's all subject to personal opinion.

I think it looks great, with a plethora of new features to help stealth, climbing and stealing look and feel even cooler than previous games....but again thats my opinion, i pre-ordered it, except i will wait and play 3 to 5 hours worth of the game before coming on here to voice my honest opinion.

This TC is probably an Xbox One only owner and therefore just bitter that Thief runs in 900p on XOne and 1080p on PS4.

#36 Posted by Boddicker (2741 posts) -

I was kind of "meh" on this game anyways. I was only going to get it if it turned out to be AMAZING.

#37 Posted by Heil68 (44559 posts) -

I'm going to gamefly it if anything.

yep, point i was trying to make. funny thing is, you can apparently turn off 99% of the shit he moans about.

#41 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7280 posts) -

It's still going to be the best game on the new consoles.

@Locutus_Picard: "Bad/awkward sex scenes"

What?!? They didn't...they couldn't....they mustn't!! Not only have a cancelled my pre-order, by I've thrown both my console & PC out the window in protestt! Bad textures and broken dialogue is one thing in a video game, but awkward sex? What do they take us for?

#43 Posted by Syn_Valence (1350 posts) -

I watched this on my ps4 last night...was not impressed yo say the least.....wonder if anyone watched this on the One

About that...I would only get a PS4, I don't need a last-gen console like XB1 in my house.

#45 Posted by Grey_Eyed_Elf (3885 posts) -

I was put off the game after watching this... LINK.

I still might get it but not at launch... Well it depends on the score.

It looks like a 6/10 game.

#46 Posted by SirSlimyScott (266 posts) -

Enjoyed the other ones, so I'll get this one too.

I had a feeling you were sarcastic :p

But it's all fitting in his persona of trying to act hardcore: options are bad. The game needs to only appeal to a niche number of hardcore gamers and anything trying to appeal to a larger audience by adding options is bad.

It's been this kind of bitching since the game was first announced. This game will be great, and the people that can't overlook some things because of their elitism, will miss out.

I'm still gonna buy it and play to make up my own mind on it

#49 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (14097 posts) -

I can't believe they added sex scenes to thief, lmao. Is that the current trend? Everything needs a sex scene. I mean Metro was bad enough.
