Despite Patrick's insistence that this game will suck, I still hold out some hope for it. A lot of critics were down on Deus Ex Human Revolution after a gameplay demo at E3 and it's the same developer. Because I'm such a fan of the old games, I will probably check Thief out at some point down the line, provided it gets at least a faintly positive critical response.
Hate that he has to bring that up every time he has a chance. Yes we get it. You played a build and didn't like it. Things can change.
