I'm not sure what to expect from the quality of this game but it's 36 bucks on gmg so I'm gonna let this poll decide.

It's 20$ on ebay. Look for the Silver tier AMD Rewards.

Whats with the last option?

The game has little to deserve the name of Thief in the first place.

Of course waiting for reviews is just the normal thing to do so I'll vote that, but I expect it to be dreadful as far as a Thief game can be. I'd have had less of a problem with the game if it just didn't hijack Thief's name. (but I'd still be laughing my ass off at things like no manual jumping".)

We'll see, I'm way beyond the point I can be hopeful for the resurrection of any series. I've rarely seen it done proper.

It's probably going to be terrible and sell so poorly that it will be about $8 on Steam in six months

Pre-ordering games is for suckers. No exceptions.

Besides that, it has been WAY too long since the last Thief game for this next one to be anything but a disappointment to long time fans. Thief 3 was "still Thief" albeit nowhere near as good as the first two. This is a reboot, not a sequel. They don't care about old fans, they care about selling to the new generation of console gamers who never heard of the series and would quickly throw their controllers in frustration if it had the slow-paced but unforgiving gameplay and semi non-linear level design of the series. This isn't even touching on the gameplay trailers which showcase exactly the type of fast-paced, guided, QTE-heavy, context-sensitive action button pressing gameplay that's been all the rage for the past few years.

I see your point of view, but I thought Eidos Montreal did a pretty decent job with Deus Ex HR and the original is probably my favorite game of all time so I'm not expecting a total trainwreck.

Didn't know the buzz around this game was that bad though.

I disagree with that. For example I'm going to buy Dark Souls 2 no matter what, so why wouldn't I pay for it immediately and get to pre load it?

This game is not Thief. It's Assassin's Creed where you play as Garrett and it has the name Thief written on it.
