I beg your pardon??!! The story takes a while to get rolling, but when it does...dragonbird said:I haven't played Thief 3 yet, but there's no real story in 1 or 2.
They're not RPGs. The first one was initially labelled as an RPG, but that's only because stealth games weren't yet an established genre. (By the way, Thief, Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu all came out in 1998. The holy trinity)They're good games in their own right, but they'd probably fall outside a lot of people's definition of "RPG".
I very much enjoyed both games. I would even go as far and say Darksiders 2 was my GOTY or at least top 3 last year. One of the main reasons why I loved the games that this genre is not very common on PC. Darksiders is a series which borrows concepts from a lot of different games, this is especially true in the first game. There is a LOT of Zelda influence in the game, some Portal, some environmental puzzles ala TR held together by a decent combat system. There is even some third person shooter action. I would give it a 7/10, nothing new but its just a lot of fun. Plus the story is pretty decent.secondchildren said:I've got a question: someone has had any kind of experience\opinion with Darksiders and Darksiders II? I'm asking because there's another nice giveaway on Steam. Thanks in advance />
I'm gonna need the deets on exploration. That's all I care about in Tomb Raider games. Is there any or is it a straightforward action game like the trailers advertised?slimgrin said:Playing the new Tomb Raider
It starts out straight forward and railroaded, then it begins to open up in areas that are fairly small but fun to explore. It has lite RPG elements which is always a plus in my book. I think it 's supposed to open up quite a bit at some point, not total sandbox style but enough to let you stretch your legs. I really like the animations for Laura and how she gets around. They make her seems like a newb ( which she is in this game) at her climbing and such but the controls are still tight and fluid. and she actually moves like a woman, a rare thing in games.Dona said:I'm gonna need the deets on exploration.

Re: Thief; yeah, those two screenshots look a lot like Dishonored. Which looks like previous Thieves. So, chicken, egg. I haven't played T1&2, but Thief 3 had a great story and was very fun to play. It's a dark game, so these new colourful screenshots confuse me :c
Also, do not want object highlighting. Finding all the treasures was a fun thing to do in Thief 3, why take that away!
All of them getting together and taking a photo is not silly in itself. How they do that via the party is.guipit said:silly all of your crew getting along and dancing is just rubbish.
