Mmmmm, wonder what changes have been made in Thief DS with regard to food supplies. What tasty medieval morsels can be envisaged? Rat and onion soup perhaps, ugh...!

I hope Ion Storm have made the issue of food/health much more realistic than it was in Thief 1 and 2, by NOT providing so much food in one obvious place - like the kitchen, for example. It should ideally be much harder to find or steal, thus providing more of a challenge in the art of survival....which is what we want, isn't it?

The more luxurious cuisine could be worth more points than your average street food. Better food could give Garrett greater health....but it should be harder to get your hands on, such as a busy populated banquet in a great mansion hall.

I never really enjoyed finding tons of apples or carrots - of which had very little value of course. You had to scoff the lot of 'em before your health bar would begin to look better. It was unrealistic and a bit boring, me thinks.

True that. I can recall one time I was low on health, and in the spcae of 4 seconds I ate 15 whole loafs of bread, returning my health to normal! Who knew wheat was so powerful?

LOL, you may need 15 loaves of bread to help wash down that rat and onion soup!

I don't know. The way some of the guards in the games talk, it sounds like those rats are pretty tasty.

Don't like the sound of exploding frogs, though of course the 'flavour in your mouth' wouldn't really enhance game play.

I like the idea of crunchy frogs though...with chips I assume!

Okay, don't get mad at me - oh lovers of that "funny looking green-noxious breath creature on four legs"....only a joke, besides....I am a vegetarian!!!

I only hope that biting into different foods don't all sound like a crisp apple.

Cheese: loud teeth biting through apple sound.
Bread: teeth in apple sound.
Deer leg: teeth in apple sound.

Actually there were only 2 eating sounds.
The "Chew and Gulp", and the "Crisp Crunch".
The bread, cheese, and deer legs were chew-gulps, and the vegetation was crispy crunch.

Yea, like eating cheese or bread could be stealthy. Put some in your pockets and save it later for "secret eating"... :D

So if were going for realism that means in Thief 3 if Garrett eats to much cheese he'll be realy slow do to the constipation....LOL
