Thief struck me like a well aimed punch to my nuts. All of my friends were freaking out about Half Life while I bought Thief after I had been reading about it from a game magazine. A good friend of mine came over and I let him try it. He went straight on melee with the first two guards and lost. I suggested he would try an another way in and he found the other entrance. Soon after he was seen again and lost the sword fight. "What's the point in this game if you can't fight these enemies?" he asked.
I love the first two. I like the third one. Haven't yet played Thief (2004).
Still listening OST of the first three games every now and then. It's simply brilliant. Strange how it fits the atmosphere so damn well.
>>323824801 I avoided Thief for a long time because I thought the setting looked like boring generic fantasy shit. Then at some point I listened to the main theme and I think the track from Assassins when they were posted in an OST thread here. I an expectation of what the soundtrack to that kind of setting would be, and it isn't weird electronic droning and hip hop drums. That made me take a closer look at the games, and now they're my favorites.
So how bad is Thi4f? I really want to play another Fantasy stealth game, but Dishonored just didn't do anything for me (I tend to go non-lethal, but just found the stealth in the game really unsatisfying and there's no tension, seeing as you can just rampage around with your super powers and arsenal of murderkill tools if you ever get caught).
>>323829613 They started working for big-name titles in all kinds of genres., including Guitar Hero, Fallout 3/4, Dishonored, DX, Oblivion, Bioshock, Half-Life 2, the list goes on. I wouldn't call that "nothing very noteworthy".

>>323829473 They blew it really, really hard. Character is wrong, personality is wrong, atmosphere is wrong, gameplay is wrong, style is wrong... like imagine every single aspect of Deadly Shadows done opposite, and then update the graphics.
>>323833730 I accepted it will probably never happen and just play fan missions.
>>323833943 I remember one of the devs actually mentioned that almost all of the AI code was re-written overnight close to release, and it transformed the game from being annoying and boring into what it is.

I get the impression that's pretty common when it comes to stealth games. I think I recall the Mark of the Ninja developers saying the game was actually completely shit until everything started to come together and gel towards the end.
Mark of the Ninja was really good. Doing a non-lethal run using the outfit that took your sword away in exchange for extra tools was a blast.
>>323820916 I have simple job plan for this evening. Break into /v/, start another Thief thread and leave quietly. Lord Summer is out of town and the rumour has it that the mods went with him, as a bodyguard. So the time is ripe for a decent thread. The front page is always full with non vydia threads, and /vg/ is far to exposed. But Cutty tells me there's a better way in,around to the side, more out of the way. Only regular Taffers, and likely no shitposters to...complicate matters. The piece Cutty wants is a decent thread,good arguments, the usual adornments. It should provide a good discussion. Lord Summer, like most of his kind, probably keeps his best threads on the top floor of the catalog. Close to his heart, and far from his his console peasant servants. No point in waiting... I have Cutty's old sketches of the place, and every underage who's going to be asleep inside already is. It's time to begin.
>>323820916 >bro downloads THE4F for free on xbl >mfw that everything christ almighty. Le cocky female siekick, 3 second long animations for fucking EVERYTHING, emo garret and that voice. how did the same studio that made a pretty fatihful deus ex prequel create this unholy abomination?
Tried it on both, the swiping to jump feels natural on a touchscreen but you can see your jump arc with a KB+M. I'd recommend using a controller if you have it. It's surprisingly good for a more casual game.
>>323829307 >AND it's been confirmed he will do some voices for System Shock 3 and the new Underworld game. I want so much for those games to be good but I can't trust that they will be. If nothing else maybe Russell's lines can be chopped up for use in FMs.
