Thief has been getting a lot of well-deserved buzz since its announcement, not the least of which surrounds its new Focus mechanic. Is it game-breaking, or harmlessly non-intrusive? Well, I'm here to to tell you none of that... read

Your ol' pals Jim and Yahtzee are back, and this week they're lending verse to Thief 4 and Animal Crossing. It's all very artistic stuff, and involves the human condition.  We are professional poets now, and we'll say this to all our dates when we go on dates with hot people.  read

Another casual discussion from the Dtoid news room
