;) Will it be featured in the game? ;)

Being a major part of both the previous games, it better be!

That's a good point! Has anyone heard anything about what will happen to his eye? They could probably take it a bit further in this game. He has his mechanical eye in some concept art does he not?

I belive he does. It'd be plain stupid not to use it.

For me, the eye was one of the let downs of Thief II, c'mon, Garrett isn't Robocop!

I have argued this many times in the past, on TTLG if I remember correctly - although Thief is a fantasy setting, I personally would like to stick to the medi-evil 'thing'. The last thing I want is help from an all-seeing eye!

Besides the zoom ability and the remote orbs, all the eye does is gives Garrett depth perception.

Take into account the magical arrows, undead, and spell casters, we've pretty much crossed over into fantasy.

In thief two I recall him cleaning his eye; taking it apart and reassembling. I always saw it as more steam punk mechanical.

I thought Garrett losing his eye was one of the most memorable gaming moments for me, and it would be a shame if they took that out.

Whoa! You're missing out then!

Yes, Garrett lost his eye in Thief: The Dark Project. Actually, Victoria ripped it out :eek:. It's a long story... Garrett got his mechanical eye just at the end of the game.

I'm playing Thief Gold at the moment, and I can't wait to finish it! :)

One thing that's strange; Garrett can zoom without the eye? I thought he got it at the end of the game...:p

Oh god
Anyway, they removed Constantines sword in thief 2 didn't they? I wouldn't be suprised if they removed the eye

I would think it to be considerably easier to trade off/lose a sword than your eye. ;)

It was a very magical sword- the tricksters himself. Garret has lost an eye before though, and he takes the mechanical one out for oiling sometime.
