REVIEWS Satellite Reign Review
A spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars that more than lives up to its legacy.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

PREVIEWS Hob Preview
If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Thief Franchise To See Deus Ex-Like Reboot With Fourth Installment

Posted on Thursday, April 19 @ 10:56:29 PST by Alex_Osborn

Excited about the upcoming fourth installment in the Thief series? Good, because you should be. Developer Eidos plans to do right by the franchise with Thief 4 by not only keeping the undeniable charm of the originals intact, but also adding all sorts of new kinds of awesome. Just like last year's stealth-action hit Deus Ex: Human RevolutionThief 4 is aiming to serve as a reboot for the franchise, offering a completely fresh take on an otherwise classic experience.

Speaking to OXM in a recent interview, Stephane D’Astous of Eidos Montreal shared the team's vision for the fourth game: "There are a lot of challenges to bringing back a great cult IP, but we consider it like a new IP and we are going to respect the spirit of the franchise like we did with Deus Ex."

D’Astous went on to express the importance of refreshing the franchise, claiming that this new Thief title will "bring more than just stealth" to the experience. “Deus Ex was the kick-start of this new series of great games, and Thief will be part of that. We don’t want to deliver the same each time. Our mandate is to bring new stuff to the table; games that we’ll be talking about for years.”

I can't say I have much experience with the series myself, but after witnessing what an awesome job they did with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, they've definitely got me interested.
