The Steampunk thief/hitman/bioshock type game is looking really good, first gameplay footage here

(I think..)

Think it looks really interesting, actually. Been some great previews dotted around.

Mind you, Hitman is coming (at last) and I keep hearing rumours that Thief 4 will drop this year. (Anything confirmed on the later? Haven't even seen a screen shot.)

Regarding Thief 4, shopto just sent an email out cancelling my pre-order stating they can no longer supply the item, which is odd...

It does look promising and up my alley.

Thief 4 - that would be absolutely marvellous (my use of "would" shows how little faith I have it will appear any time soon, if at all). I loved the last one, though that was my entry point; I know many hardcore Thief fans weren't so keen on it. That level in the orphanage was amazing.

As for Hitman....another of my favourite series (yes, stealth sucker I am) but I haven't warmed to any of the changes in the new one. I'm definitely not rushing into a purchase.

All sorts of weirdness on display there. I like it.

EDGE did a preview of their cancelled game that made it look really good, I will definitely be keeping an eye on this.

Hell yes, irrespective of the reviews, this game looks made for me and the art direction is stunning.
I cannot wait!

Very curious about this. I know some of you lot don't read Eurogamer reviews but I thought it was pretty balanced and informative. Hard to see me not picking this up. This is an awful, awful time of the year for the wallet....

This went from nowhere to a sodding huge blip on my gaming radar. The art direction and design looks amazing but there's too much else vying for my wallet at the mo so it's going to be a january cheapy hoover-up I reckon.

I was always intrigued by the art direction and design, but learning from reviews that it plays similarly to Hitman has totally sold it to me - well-crafted, organic, non-cookie cutter levels that encourage time, patience and different approaches to completing them. Yes please!

I cannot wait until Friday.

You know what, I haven't seen anything bar a TV ad. I have no idea what I'm getting into. This is the only thread I've stepped in to for this game.

Oops...I feel a bit guilty now seeing your post about being in the dark / avoiding spoilers.

Anyway, that's my impression culled from reviews.

Yeah, this does look rather good, tempted to pick it up as it's rather short-ish too from what I've read. Dammit, why am I interested in these new games.

I've definitely got to a point in my life were short is a virtue (so long as the game is good, of course). I'm so bad at finishing longer games these days....

The couple of reviews I have read say that the game is only short if you just focus on the primary goal of each mission. It sounds very much like a game where the more you explore each level the more you will find to do.

Don't get me wrong - I'll be happy if this is long enough :-)

It's more that many games don't hold my attention for their duration nowadays - didn't finish Max Payne 3, Darksiders 2, Syndicate, to name just a few from recent months. I'm pretty confident Dishonored will.

I too like a short game now and again but not pisstakingly short. Something that's got enough meat to it that it takes a good week or so of gaming time to break the back of it, but has the optional extras to keep you coming back for another go.

Really does look pretty, just watched the trailer (after swearing I wouldn't) and I really really love the tech in this, oh yes!

I don't mind longer games, problem is it usually takes me a lot longer to finish them than it does for most people. And I always persevere as I don't like to move on to something else until I've finished it! So yeah, although the odd epic game is good every now and then, I much prefer it when a game doesn't outstay its welcome.

I'm fast turning into one of those grumpy old gamers, it seems.

Yes, I think "outstaying its welcome" is the right way to put it.

Well, if there's nothing else on the horizon you're interested in (aside from, perhaps, Forza Horizon), then just go for it.

I'd definitely have ordered if I hadn't just bought Skyrim. From all accounts Dishonored is really not the sort of game you'd want to rush through.

Well potentially there's Forza Horizon and new NFS and I've got absolutely nowhere with Borderlands 2 so technically I'm over-quota already. But I do like the look of this very much (but might actually be better off till a few more have posted about how 'stealth-heavy' it is).

If it's like Hitman, and you can actually cleverly get your way out of trouble once discovered, I might be OK with it. If it's hefty with its punishments for non-stealthiness I might have to give it a miss.

Really love the art direction and the characters.

Let down by the postie... grrrr.

Can't believe that since moving into the middle of the city we don't get a delivery until gone one pm.

All these years on the internet have ruined my patience levels.
