  1. What is this a reference to? Thief 2014 only...

    What is this a reference to? Thief 2014 only came out "a few years ago" so are you referring to someone at SE who came along after that?
  2. Yeah, that's right. I remember the devs...

    Yeah, that's right. I remember the devs originally saying something like "there won't be any dinosaurs in the game," obviously referring to burricks. But they did end up including a dead burrick or...

    Except that there are no burricks in the world of Thief 2014.

    Not sure if you're aware, but about 98% of Thief 4 is played in first person. So without sound, playing as Erin wouldn't do you much good. If you're talking about a mod that allows you to play in...

    Notice that he said this is all dependent on "If Hitman is successful enough..." So I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    It is interesting though that it does mention this same producer has the...

    I'm just speaking in general terms, there are always exceptions. I'll be picking up SOMA on preorder, because I love kind of stuff Frictional comes up with. If a new Thief game came out, there's no...

    Found a couple of interesting articles on Pre-Ordering games, and why it's not a good idea:

    You should never, ever preorder a video game (Cnet).

    Video games are going to get a lot worse as long...
  8. I'm not sure how pre-ordering works through the...

    I'm not sure how pre-ordering works through the official site (if they charge your credit card right away or not), but if you pre-order through Steam, it's actually called "Pre-Purchasing" and they...

    Why are you legitimizing methods just because "they are already in place"? That doesn't make them OK.

    I guess I don't get game marketing as a whole - why are preorders so important that they have...
  10. Crazy that all the extra stuff costs 150% more...

    Crazy that all the extra stuff costs 150% more than the game itself.

    And where did they come up with the "4 days early" thing? Why not a week? Not exactly super motivating for a game that's...

    I'd be interested in checking this mission out, if anyone has a copy let me know.

    I don''t have any numbers to back it up or anything, but I wouldn't consider Thief a cash cow. I don't believe any of the Thief games have been blockbuster hits. The gameplay overall just doesn't...

    See, now we're getting to the root of the problem.

    I don't think you're paying attention here.
  15. Sticky: I thought it was fairly obvious, but those...

    I thought it was fairly obvious, but those numbers were exaggerated in order to make a point. It seems the point was missed.
  16. Sticky: See, this is where I think you keep missing the...

    See, this is where I think you keep missing the point. Just being in the #1 spot doesn't mean anything, because you're just comparing Thief's sales to the sales of other games. It can be the top...
  17. Sticky: Yes, I did. Why are you bringing that up, did I...

    Yes, I did. Why are you bringing that up, did I contradict myself somewhere? If so, I don't see it. Tbh, I have no idea how well the game sold or not. I'm guessing no figures have been released...
  18. Sticky: Yes, but comparative sales, not total sales. As...

    Yes, but comparative sales, not total sales. As I mentioned in my original post, there's nothing in that article about the game selling well. It just mentions that it sold more on the PS4 than on...
  19. Sticky: Let's not make this into a huge debate - I wasn't...

    Let's not make this into a huge debate - I wasn't disputing whether the game sold well or not. I was just specifically questioning your original link, which really didn't say anything concrete about...
  20. Sticky: The only reason I put "exceptionally well" in...

    The only reason I put "exceptionally well" in quotes is because I was quoting you.

    But if you're not using that link to back up your statement, then why are you providing the link? That...
  21. I think what people are saying is - there likely...

    I think what people are saying is - there likely won't be more video shown before the Kickstarter is done (16 days from now). And after that, the project will either be funded or not, so you won't...
  22. Sticky: That link doesn't say anything about Thief...

    That link doesn't say anything about Thief selling "exceptionally well." All it says is that it sold more on the PS4 than it did on the Xbox One. Yes, it was ranked #1, but that's only for a one...
  23. On the Underworld Ascendant thing, don't be...

    On the Underworld Ascendant thing, don't be afraid to pledge up instead of just going for the minimum $20 level. If the project hits a million, we'll get a Builder Toolkit, which would allow us to...

    46 here - it says I can't vote in the poll. Does that just mean I previously voted?

    I'm available if they'd like to pay me to design that scenario. :cool:
