...yet as disease and suffering spread, so too does a fierce anger...

The Thief series is my favourite game of all time. I continued to play it for a decade after it launched, only giving it up when we no longer had a Windows machine in the house.

Ubisoft has been working on a reboot for maybe four years and the first reports about development were not very confidence inspiring.  One of the lead developers left, it had Quick Time Events, and some kind of RPG experience system.  Thankfully, they dumped all that and this latest primer makes it look really good. I'll miss Stephen Russel, the voice actor from the original games, but I'm really looking forward to creeping around this rainy, gloomy-looking world.
