This gameplay trailer for Thief ticks all the right boxes

There's a fairly short list of things that I'd want to see in a new Thief game: water arrows, sneaking past guards, shiny trinkets ripe for the plunder, some casual pickpocketing, and a city shrouded in a seemingly endless night. This new ...

This Thief demo sees the return of a trusty tool

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 matters people...

Thief is going to be an exhilarating game

We've already covered Thief and the latest demo we saw was largely the same: go in someone's house and steal their most precious item. Steven Hansen broke down a lot of the mechanics already, so I just wanted to touch on how the actual game...

Thief looks like everything I wanted Dishonored to be

I liked Dishonored a lot, even if it didn’t turn out to be a literal ninja game. What I seem to have liked most about it, though, is its more tertiary elements. I love the fiction behind the world and its stylish, stylized aesthetic. ...

First Thief trailer: Redesign, new voice and an explosion

My hopes and dreams for the new Thief

I'm bursting at the seams with hopes and dreams at the moment. It must be a spring thing, though looking outside my window, I'm hard pressed to imagine that we're entering a new season. It's positively gloomy outside, clouds blocking out al...
