Also bought Thief (WD came with a $12 credit and it was on sale for $16). Don't know if I will like the game, but the soundtrack is awesome!

I'll be intrigued to hear your thoughts on that. It seems pretty divisive

I like Thief. There are issues but the core mechanics are solid as all hell.

The thieving is great and is really all that matters. The story and its execution is poor and should be dismissed. New voiced mascara Garrett should be overlooked too. There are a lot of unfinnished stuff in the game that happen only once or twice, but core gameplay is very good. Do ramp up the difficulty though or else you will ruin that too.

I put it on think I should put it on the hardest setting (1st time through)?

Comment by Hokum on April 17, 2014 at 6:18pm
I do. I did not enable all the mission fail conditions nor did I disable focus though. A little help now and then from focus e.g. highlighting is nice, it alleviates frustration sometimes:)

Identifying with games and game characters

This is actually just a copy-paste of my most recent comment on this weeks Axe Factor. I've long intended this as a blog post, which is why it appears here as well.

I haven't heard the podcast yet, but I felt like writing a response to the question to this weeks poll, "Have you ever had a "That's Me!" experience with a video game character?"

The answer is yes. One of the most powerful gaming experiences for me the last couple of years have been To The…

To all Axeheads: Send in your audio-farewells for EBC

Hey everyone.
