The people behind the Hitman movie want to make a Thief movie

Prime Universe, the minds behind 2007's Hitman movie adaptation, has their eyes on a movie based on Thief. Adrian Askarieh and Roy Lee are behind the project as producers. Askarieh is also working on a Kane & Lynch adaptation, as well as what looks like a sequel to the original Hitman movie, where Roy Lee has worked on The Ring, The Grudge, and other Americanizations of popular Japanese horror films. 

Vertigo is also involved, this could well be a turning point for the series after its long hiatus and lackluster reboot. Let's just say I'll stay cautiously optimistic. Garrett deserves a faithful adaptation, and I'm hoping this is one that'll do his legacy justice.

Now that Thief is out, Eidos Montreal lays off 27 people

AAA development works, the large studio tells you. "Yes it is true we've let 27 people go today," its press release reads as you imagine it dabbing crocodile tears with a fan of c-notes. "Unfortunately it's something that ev...more

PC Port Report: Thief

The Thief series began on the PC, and it's one of those games that old people like me say has its spiritual home there. So it's no surprise that the new Thief reboot/remake would come under scrutiny as to how well it performs...more

Review: Thief

The original Thief was one of my favorite PC games of all time. It was unique in that it completely focused on stealth -- a mechanic that wasn't used often at the time outside of a few select games like the original...more

Watch what Thief is all about in this new launch trailer

Thief is almost here, and you can get a glimpse of a bit of gameplay (but not much) from its launch trailer above. As expected, there's tons of looting, sneaking, and swooping, compliments of the master thief and hero o...more

Not this again: Thief is 900p on Xbox One, 1080p on PS4

Just yesterday we learned that yet another Xbox One game is going to have a lower resolution than its PS4 counterpart, and here we are again with Thief. Square Enix has recently noted that Thief will run at 1080p on the ...more

Steal everything in sight in this Thief gameplay video

There doesn't seem to be any doubt about it, Thief will certainly live up to its namesake. In this 17-minute video that shows the game's first mission, Garrett gets his klepto on and does his best magpie impression, as ...more

New Thief video teaches how to steal in style

The title of this Thief video calls it a trailer, but I'd be hard-pressed to classify it as such. Not many trailers run six minutes, but whatever this is, it remains interesting the whole time. I guess badass thievery a...more

Let's look at the customization options for Thief on PS4

We already knew that the upcoming reboot of Thief was going to have lots of customization on PC, but it's good to see the PlayStation 4 (and presumably all console versions) will have those options too. From the start of the...more

Preview: The first four hours of Thief

Back in October, I got the chance to sit down to chat with members of Eidos Montreal after a lengthy session with the new entry in the Thief series. Since the reveal in 2009, the game has gone through many different iteration...more

Legend of Korra will have difficulty levels Platinum fans expect

This first "behind the scenes" video for Platinum's Legend of Korra game isn't great, but fans of Platinum's intense action fare might be happy to hear that there will be a high difficulty level just for them. Could've ...more

Want to watch a season pass trailer for a game that hasn't released yet?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's doing mostly fine from the reviews that came out last week, but that doesn't mean that you will like it. How can you like a game if you haven't played it yet? You can't, plain and simple...more

Max's five reasons Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor kicks ass

Like Max, I didn't know what to make of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but taking a guarded approach has paid off -- the reviews are in and they're overwhelmingly positive. Nice surprise! Still not sure I'll rush out to grab the game at launch on Tuesday -- I've got my hands full, as I'm sure many of you will shortly -- but it's much higher on my to-play list after this week.more
