Should I preorder Thief 4?

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.


It's not the same team.

You shouldn't pre-order anything ever.

Thanks PCH, I'll refrain from giving them my money, and just be grateful that we're going to see another dishonored game which seems to be the closest we'll get to a new thief.

Also, installing Thief 2 with some graphics mods. Excited to play it again with the new dark engine that got released as I'm almost done my SS2 playthrough and the updated engine feels really good.

Pre-ordering games is for suckers. No exceptions.

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?


Because they might screw up everything that made the first good? Even franchises like X and Total War have gone down the drain a fair bit. Since it's not like digital copies run out of stock, you gain literally nothing aside from pre order bonuses from ordering early.

Solid enough logic unless you're talking about games that I'm going to buy no matter what and play at midnight after they're preloaded like Dark Souls 2, Half Life 3 etc.

I don't advise preordering anything for pretty much any reason. Especially not PC games. There will be no shortage when reviews are out

Some of the more shady devs give extra content or free DLC for pre-ordering. If a person is pretty sure he will buy the game then this is technically a reason to pre-order. I don't know if this is a very ethical practice since it's basically encouraging the customers to make uninformed purchases based on hype & vague promises by denying content or increasing the price of the complete experience if they hesitate.

Wait for reviews. The game is NOT going to be like the original Thief games...but it may still be a good game in it's own right.

At least they decided to remove QTE situations based on fan backlash.

Jesus Christ no, what is wrong with you? While you're at it why not go buy DmC:Devil may Cry? Because this is lining up to be just as big of a f*** up.
