Was just gonna post it myself :)

I'm pretty stoked about the look of it, as stoked as your supposed to get by a teaser trailer anyway, can't wait for dat gameplay to leak too :P. Garret looked pretty faithful to how he looks in the other games I think, and though there was a kinda action-y scene (hey that's trailers for ya, amirite?) it seems to me that they hit some of the key point emphasizing stealth and planning. I did notice the voice is not that of Stephen Russell, although it did sound pretty similar. Not a dealbreaker for me but Russell not being involved would also mean there's probably not gonna be any Benny hijinks going on which is the real loss if we're going to be totally honest.

I'm glad it seems to continue the fiction with him having the mechanical eye and all - but will he have crazy magical glyph powers?

That was amazing! It's like, it's like it's another stealth game of the fifty games that came out in the last 8 years where you be all stealthy, except it's Thief which means we're gonna be stealing shit like pros and adopting the darkness. YES!

However... That's not Garret's voice....... shit.

And here. we. go.

It's nice and all, but trailers that don't show any gameplay really don't do anything for me :(

I thought the "way of life" was a dumb addendum to what he was saying about thievery. Hand snatching the logo at the end was pretty good, thought that was nifty.

Uh...that voice?

i can't imagine a future where this game doesn't feel exactly like dishonored but whatever there was no gameplay shown so who am i to judge.

And the fact that it penalized you for playing a certain way and lack of non lethal variety.

Also I'd be interested in some gameplay. Enough of this CG bullshit.

I don't think it will play like Dishonored. The worlds may turn out to be similar, but for gameplay, Thief is about avoiding combat and at least some level of vulnerability, where Dishonored was a stealth superhero revenge power fantasy.

I know they added some bullet-time melee stuff to this one, but it looks like that was just a trade for getting rid of the sword and it's more for distancing yourself from attackers than kicking their asses or straight-up murdering them.

Hell yeah!

Dishonored? Thief games don't have teleportation and other fantastical contrivances like that. It is a different sort of thing. Look more to the older Splinter Cell games for parallels to Thief gameplay.

Did you play beyond the second level in the original?

@beachthunder:

Yeah. I meant teleportation and body possession and such. Unless I am remembering wrong, Thief never went quite that far.

This really reminds me of male perfume adverts, only this actually has relevancy to its product.

What's with the ESRB rating screen resembling the MPAA "preview" rating screens?
