    Was playing the first 3 games, in their entirety, mandatory before they began developing Thief 4?

    Were there regular meetings about what was said in this forum, and how significant was what we...

    Patient: Doctor, doctor, I have this excruciating pain every time I hit my knee like this (Bonk, Bonk, Bonk). It hurts so bad that I cannot walk for 5 minutes afterwards. What should I do?

    Doctor:...

    Let us consult the definitive source of the definition of words. OXFORD. If Oxford says it, it's the gospel truth. The people behind Oxford are the ones that define the words we use everyday. Oxford...

    Happen to agree with Platinum, although it pains me to say so.

    I feel so dirty.

    You know, I really don't NEED to type the entire alphabet at the end of every post I make, but for some reason, I feel compelled to. I know there is simply no logical reason for me to type the entire...

    Need, need, need. Everyone's so needy. Myself included.

    When developers start to think, hey, the players don't need to go to that room, so why even waste our time creating a room over there? Just...

    If one were infused with my intelligence, it would be quite clear that being able to free jump is not even .0000000001% connected to immersion. That's why I seldom comment on this subject.

    I'll...

    I do not like it!

    Too bland. Too boring. Too minimal. Too rushed.

    Especially when the gameplay footage seems Too overthought. Too much happening. Too contrived.

    It's as though EM is...

    Yes, those headlines were taken from US sources. I won't and can't argue with you about our poor education system. But seeing the US is the main market for video games, the stats are relevant.

    I believe in the future, there may be a single "Action" button on controllers. I firmly believe that humans are getting stupider and stupider as time progresses. In fact, there are numerous articles...

    That's the only, only, only benefit of preordering....getting some exclusive item. I can get a game just as fast as a preorderer can, if I choose.

    My reasons for preordering are not centered...

    As long as we're comparing apples to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I'd like to add:

    There were no Rocket Propelled Grenades in Super Mario World, that's why Garrett doesn't have RPGs.

    It was fun for me while it lasted, until you began repeatedly spanking me for "excessive speculation passed off as truth."

    With me, if something doesn't pass the giggle test, It's a lie. If...

    I agree with InDIGnation. The surrealism, the mixing of the arcane and modern, and the overall mysticism of Thief, was what gave it character....among other things.

    There are no chances taken by...

    I liked the trailer, had a nice vibe to it.

    However, judging a game by the trailer is like judging a book by its cover. A game trailer is in no way indicative of how awesome a game will be.

    I...

    Once you all understand why QTEs and contextual jumping, lockpicking, leaning etc. have become so pervasive in the industry, then you will all stop complaining...heck, a few of you may actually...

    Do you take me for a troll, madam? I have lived my life by the following sayings, "If you're not about to crash, you're driving too slow." And "If you're not ruffling a few feathers, you're playing...

    I wonder if I will feel more immersed in the game when I try to decapitate a sleeping servant and I'm not even allowed to draw my sword in that particular room???
  19. As per my name, I view harrassment as a good...

    As per my name, I view harrassment as a good thing. It means you're actually making an impression.

    When one becomes famous, harrassment goes with the territory. When I go out shopping, nobody...

    I will admit, I'm not happy about contextual jumping, but I accept it as a sign of the times. I have thrown in the towel long ago.

    Contextual jumping = lazy programming that caters to the lazy...

    I'm going to refrain from commenting on Adam's post for fear of a lifetime ban. However, at least he took Matsuda's advice (the president of Square Enix) and "....interact with our customers for our...

    Here's the thing. There are so few Thief Fans that it doesn't matter if they please them, tick them off, ignore them, cater to them, etc. It doesn't matter.

    How many original fans (people who been...

    1) If I were Mr. Anfossi, I'd scrap first person altogether. Not even an option. I'd mandate Thief 4 is entirely third person. If I were Mr. Anfossi, I'd want to showcase my animators skills. You'd...

    Well Subjective Effect, then by your logic, I should have said, "I am new to video games and have only played Halo and Call of Duty, I once entered a "Draw Master Chief Contest", and am one of the...

    I'm going to make a statement that isn't going to be very popular. In fact, it may be worthy of an infraction, but it must be said. I am qualified to make this statement because: 1) I am old, I've...
