  1. OK good walk through I did not need it, but then again I played on normal. I did want to know where to go and what to do next at certain frustrating times. My advice would be to not use this walk through as much as possible and please play on normal your first time in, this was one of the hardest most frustrating game I can remember, and at times felt impossible. i just finished it so it is in my mind and I am sure I have played harder games but I do not remember. This guy in the second episode does seem to know exactly where to go and what to do, so probably not his first run. The 4 guys in the plaza shot at me so many times, at every angle no matter where I was, even running they hit me every single time they fired their gun with godlike aim that I made sure I killed them all with the maintenance jack. Not a good thing but I could not help myself. Typos, they are embarrassing.
  2. Judith "controls" "and "the last part of the game" is my main gripe. Imagine having the same controls in any Thief before 4, You had to be quick in Thief games you have simple controls that did not impact gameplay for me at all, whereas in Alien Isolation the controls did impair the game for me. Imagine in Thief 2 you had to hold down the right mouse button and press E and then Q then press the left button once to open a door. This is all console crap, I am sorry for this but it really pisses me off. I am also new to the not being able to fight back games so the impossibility of it just got tedious. When I go in to Amnesia I know I am completely vulnerable and I will be prepared. Please forget my Thief 4 comment, it was based on the controls only. I think a key aspect my opinion is that not a second of actual fear or scare came when that green beast killed me, I have had 3 decades of real trauma in my own life so it just got irritating for me. just a question would I be better of with Mass Effect 1 or Dead Space 1 for my next game, or play some old DOS or Amiga RPG's.
  3. You can say that again. . I am not trying to discredit the game it's just my opinion and the game has far greater aspects to it to weigh in the god to bad I would say 3 good 1 bad, if this would matter. Also Judith, the comment I made about Thief 4 was about the console reminisce and the constant odd keyboard and mouse controls. So a dummy like myself to review this game I would give it 65 out of 100 - this is due to frustration in "some" of the game play aspects (mainly keyboard and mouse controls, but also a feeling of impossibility to finish the game), that tried my patience for far too long
  4. OK I just finished and I don't think this is a spoiler so I believe it to be a lot like Thief 4. I am sure we all know about the games that had console versions to be considered first and this and thief 4 were chalk-full of it, but I did find Alien Isolation to be worse at times. I also played the game at normal difficulty so that would be a consideration in my views I guess. But as said the graphics are nice, and really reminded me of System Shock 2 - the level design anyway - but with way more detail and shader effects. Back then the polygon count was an issue to keep it optimized, last play of Thief 1, the guards looked like they were about 10 ploy's.
  5. I am not a person to pick apart engines in a game and or their tech. Its just the similarities are amazing to me from ID tech 4 game engine in 2004, has a similar look to the "Cathode Engine" in 2014. ID has always used OpenGl for their games when DirectX 10 cane out ID still used OpenGl I believe even Rage may have used OpenGl. Otherwise they look similar.
  6. I have been playing this for a couple of frustrating days and the worst part I hope is over, the alien which is always there no matter how you try to avoid it - it will kill you again and again. Now this would be lame to start a topic for its gamplay I realize, but it has an engine almost exactly like IDs OpenGl engine that would be very well known here. It is almost identical to the Doom 3 engine at first glance and the one thing that tipped me off was the refraction in the glass and the gaseous vapors that exist in areas. The only thing I notice when I was not trying to find a way around that damn alien bastard ("Alien" and not "Aliens" is one of my favorite Sci-Fi / Horror movies although everyone swears Aliens is better but is a matter of opinion) is the lighting and of course the advanced rendering, this one supposedly caters to AMD, but my GTX 1080 see's no stuttering at all, which again reminds me of IDs famous (to me) optimized OpenGl engines.
  7. I am familiar with that FM just out of curiosity but do not remember it. My praise to Komag was his amazing and somewhat comical ways of explaining things in his tutorials. here are some labels I made (low res to fit)
  8. Exactly, but did not want to drop names (because of money being involved). I was the last one to purchase the DVDs before he closed up shop. Where is Komag anyway? other than in the same county in CA where I live. My Thief 3 FM was made possible by his tutorials, and I think Dark Mod as well.
  9. OK I see the transformation from season 10 to season 11. Wished I knew earlier before this thread, so sorry about the start of this topic before doing my research. I loved episodes 3-5, some of the best I have seen since earlier on in the originals. Typos galore with almost every post. I try to proofread the text but I still come up with typos. Original "I loved episodes 3-5, some of the best I gave seen since earlier on in the originals."
  10. I bought a massive DVD collection of all Thief 1-3 FMs At that time there was 176 Thief Gold FMs 584 Thief 2 FMs. Only 33 Thief 3 FMs. 11 GB in total.
  11. And in watching the first few episodes I am sickened with the inclusion of deformed children, that goes beyond what I can stand, and I have watched many horror shows that do not even go farther than irritate me as they are almost always the same. Too bad they had to put that crap in it. Aliens are interesting seeing deformed kids is sad and sick. There are massage parlors out there that from what I heard that harvest peoples sperm to make future sex slaves. This is the kind of act that makes me my veins drip with evil, in the intent to slay these people. If someone knocked at my door and offered me 1,000,000,000 dollars for my sperm I would say no way, get lost. This is a true fact and not just talk - if you do not believe me, find a billionaire and ask me and then you will get your answer. The x-files turned to human ugliness rather than focus on the interesting discovery of the supernatural. OK I just realized this may not be the conspiracy to follow in the entire season, (or mini-season) I sure hope not. Another Edit: the children thing is a bit personal and therefore angers me more than most I guess, so sorry about my rant. Episode 3 was great, I am glad I was wrong.
  12. Bulletstorm is the dreaded dual DRM Microshafts Game For Window Live and Steam. I would look for people with GamersGate purchases, the cool thing about GamersGate is that they sell most new games with keys to unlock games on Steam, so these keys are actual currency. Unfortunately Assassin's creed before the third installments are just setups to install. After that Steam will send you to Uplay, another dreaded DRM to play. Any Far Cry 3 and above and Assassins creed 3 and above will be Uplay controlled. http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/864975026886264359/ This looks like If you buy a game in a bundle for yourself gifting is not possible, but I do see your logic, gifting a super sale bundle of games you do not particularly like, to use as a trade. Then comes the question of, If you only want a certain game, can you just wait for a sale. Usual bundles for Bethesda and ID are fairly expensive, with fallout and Elders Scrolls as being AAA games. I think the trading of keys should be done with GamersGate as they literally just sell anonymous keys.
  13. Now there is 2 new episodes, they come out on Monday, next episode #3 will be January 17th "But I haven't seen season 11 yet. Going to watch it" Coming from 10 to 11 will at least let you understand WTF is going on. I came from the Original and the Movie during the originals, Season 1 to Season 9. So this Season 11 episode 1 looked like a series of flashbacks and complete nonsense. But again I had no idea this was season 11 and there was actually a season 10 before.
  14. The hole digging machine in Overtire had me furious. Puzzles are cool, but without logic they are just annoying and you have to break out of the game to look for walk through just to continue and I believe that was also a anti-climatic end as well. Watch the Angry Video Game Nerd on Castlevania 2 and the idiotic puzzles that make no sense. 4:29 4:52 When you find yourself around celestial or similar supernatural beings, then combat is out of the question, Dogs in overture were at least mortal so you could hit one of them with a hammer or similar or dynamite. I have yet to play a run and hide only game, other than Black Plague, so I cannot say if the idea is a of a more frightening type of game or not. Right now I am in Alien Isolation, basically a System Shock 2 game, but will get into a run and hide game soon. BYW I could knock out one of those ghouls with a right hock placed square on their chins it they have one.
  15. Because Season 11 Episode 1 was absolute garbage, it was by far one of the worst new season episode I have ever seen. 1. It did not make sense coming from the end of season 9. 2. It looked like the speed was so hectic that it was a way to cover up such bad writing. (now you see it now you don't - wait WTF just happened? 3. It was a mishmash of utter nonsense. But I was wrong in this was not going strait from season 9 and that there was a season 10, therefore my negative comments will have to wait until I watch season 10.
