So the recent revealing of a new Thief game reminded me of this series and that I always wanted to play it. So I went and got the first 3 Thief games and man…shit’s kickin my ass in the best ways possible. Took me 3 nights to get to chapter 3 with plenty of screw ups in the first two chapters, especially Cragcleft Prison…fuck man, those Hammerites don’t fuck around, and those hammers HURT!
Anyway this was mostly an excuse to talk about the Thief series, be it the first 3 games or the new upcoming one.
To touch on Thief 4 I think it’s looking pretty promising. Being Developed by the guys who did Deus Ex Human Revolution which I really liked, I’m looking forward to it. I’m really happy the “Thief Vision” can be disabled permanently, something I’ll be doing when I play. I also hope we can disable a lot of the other HUD elements as well, like the pick pocket timer thing when he robs people of their purses. Only thing I’m not liking about the new one is the exp system…Why does everything have to have an exp system anymore? Buying shit with the cash you get from shit you fence should be enough honestly…
Anyway I’m definitely a new fan of this series
