Either GT has the worst search engine in the history of search engines, or we don't have a thread for this show.

Season 2 just aired a few days ago on Netflix, this being a Netflix exclusive. The GF and I just watched the first episode of season 2, and mother of god...this show is good!

If you haven't seen it, please watch it. DAMN that man gives me the chills in some of his monologues.

I LOVE the trailer for this game - so damn brilliant. The game itself seems like a great idea and thanks for pointing out the kickstarter! I'll be sure to join in!

But if you go someplace where pot is legal, and smoke up, and three weeks later get busted back home for having it in your "system"...

Would be like if a breathalyzer worked for a month.

Thats silly - I don't know a single country where the law works like that. Smear human blood all over your body from someone you murdered and return to your own country and its fine? Like most humans, you are expected to function within the norms of your society, this means using logic in following the rules.

If anyone is still missing a key and want in, just go to Curse. They let pretty much everyone get one.

So they let you in?


Come on, you left that door wide open Tongue

Just in case

I'm kidding with ya

Just in case you didn't know this - SF is more or less dead. They just left the government now, and several of their key party members have left for the Socialist Party instead (Whom the Prime Minister is a part of). It will take a long time for them to get back on their feet, if ever!

I've been to France, Italy, Spain as well, and every single place we put the paper in the toilet as per usual? Africa I can understand, but most European countries have pretty good waste systems. Hell, the Romans had running water over 2000 years ago ;-)

Never been to Greece nor Cyprus (Always wanted, though! so much history there!) but haven't heard anything like that before.

I'd be a helluva lot more worried about the reports that bathrooms where the press are staying warn them to not flush used toilet paper and instead put it in the trashcan by the toilet. puke

Most countries don't have the high pressure sewer lines that we have in the US, so yes, the above is completely true.

wat?

Well, I honestly don't know how long you are under any kind of influence, but as long as its detectable in your system, you are liable to lose your license here in Denmark so..Don't do drugs and drive is the message :-)

It can stay more than 30 days in ones body. Fat cells tend to hold on to it. So, 24 days after partaking, you're still buzzed? Come on..

huh? Where did I say that? Since drugs in general aren't legal in Denmark, of course this is the rule. In actual testing, there are minimum limits of course, which, if the subject has lower than that, is considered to be a negative test.

Edit: I see its my last sentence in the previous post that causes the issue. No, I do not think that you are under the influence of a drug two weeks after you ingested it.

Some of it seems decent, but other things make me scoff or laugh. Mostly its the violence approach I guess. One of the things that was unique to thief was the horror of being discovered. If the guards found you, you had to be lucky to escape with your life. Here, you can just kill everyone and be done with it it seems. That takes away a great deal of the tension. Imagine Cradle level where you could just slaugther everything - fun? Not really.

In Denmark its illegal to drive in up to a week after ingesting any kind of weed. It stays in the body for a long time. Cannabis can be in the body up til several weeks after ingesting it, and if you are driving while that can be found, your drivers license will be revoked immediately.

Driving while under any kind of influence is both dangerous and stupid.

If you look at the picture I posted up earlier, you can see that it's anything but. Both in terms of story, but also in terms of gameplay. The mere fact that the lead developer has stated that you can't have combat being as dangerous as it was in the originals shows how little they understand of the lure of the game. They also recently stated that the levels are small because they wanted the player to feel claustrophobic.... Oookay. Pretty much every Thief Level was a huge, huge area giving you tons of options and some of them pretty claustrophobic but more in terms of design, than just shrinking the levels.

After the delay they did a lot of rethinking.  They got rid of the XP system, they made combat shockingly lethal, etc.   I was with you - I was worried a little bit just before the original launch date.  I'm optimistic now - especially after that trailer.  Well done!

sadly, it seems that they just renamed XP into gold, seeing the latest screens from the game. Abilities now costs gold instead of xp.

You should have chosen Elder Scrolls online as partner ;-) Anyways - Congrats on the move! I hope it brings you everything you wanted out of the deal :-)

Sadly the game is not for me, but I'm tons of others enjoy it!

I'm in as well - So much fun to be had and potential. The lead dev said they would add combat as well to this, and you'll be able to place NPC's and what-have-we so...I'm rather excited about the future of this.

As for the last few days? well, its alpha and this is why they are letting people in. To crash the systems.

68  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon To Start Charging Tax In My State on: January 28, 2014, 03:29:16 PM
Indeed -its after you go to the checkout we see the taxed prices so we just kinda know we have to add a bit to the price. I know 25 percent is a lot, but bear in mind, we have free healthcare ;-)

I do seem to remember Denmark has one of the highest taxes on personal income. I pay close to 60 percent in taxes on my income, so its not something that is unfamiliar to us.
69  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon To Start Charging Tax In My State on: January 28, 2014, 02:41:53 PM
aha! thanks for explaining!

I can tell you though, if its any consolation, we pay 25 percent on imported goods :-)
70  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon To Start Charging Tax In My State on: January 28, 2014, 02:08:55 PM
Why is it such a big deal? Doesn't it just mean you have to pay what the merchandise costs? We pay taxes on everything here in Denmark that we import, and have been forever I'd say.
71  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Black Sails on: January 28, 2014, 08:33:07 AM
Was I the only one who felt slightly insulted by this show? I watched the first episode last night, and while it was very pretty, even on my aging tv, I found the lesbian sex annoying. It's become a thing that new shows thinks that have to show tits and ass to reel in the viewers and this show is no different. The lesbians were clearly there only for the reason that they want the dudebros I guess its called to go "Hell yeah" and tune in the next time. I'd much rather they made a show that was good (Like True Detective) and in that way reeled in their audience.

I'm no prude - hell, I'm from Denmark where we liberated sex 50 years ago and used to nudity amongst all genders both beaches and other places, but this just makes me sad and somewhat annoyed.

Its not a new thing, but it has become increasingly difficult to gloss over. The very first episode of X-Files had Gillian Andersen in bra and undies. That was the only time it happened in that particular show and thats..well, bearable I guess. I would just like to enjoy the show for what it is, and for however much gratuitous sex and violence they show.

Other than that, the show was...well, competent but ultimately not very interesting to me.

Very! You drop in and out of MP without noticing pretty much, and can take on things alone if thats your thing. I'd advise you to try the MP (Which is standard setup) though, since its really no hassle, and happens without you doing pretty much anything for it. Its sort of you indicate you want to run a mission, and 3 more people are found for that mission and it starts.

Try restarting Steam. There was a patch last night.

Here's a lovely one. My internet connection went down tonight because Time Warner is not a very good company, so I thought I'd pass the time by listening to some music. Turns out, streaming music stored locally on your PC to your Xbox One requires an internet connection. You never know, you might decide at any moment to stop listening to the music you own and subscribe to Xbox Music!

I hate crap like that! Does the PS4 do the same kind of stuff?

Did anyone really expect this to be good? The developers have shown an incredible lack of understanding of what made the Thief series interesting, and have throughout the entire development process clearly shown they have zero interest in taking the features of the old thief and incorporating in the new thief.

This is a nice collection of qoutes and information about the game, showing just how diverged from Thief the game seems to be.
