    The good: It looks sexy.

    The bad: It might be too sexy.

    The ugly: I'm probably not sexy enough for it.

    I love Thief: Deadly Shadows. I beat it at least three times. I also love Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The same team that made that game made this one too (Eidos Montreal). I don't know the bad and ugly because I haven't played it yet.

    The good - AMD Mantle suggests good performance on my AMD-based machine, which will result in beautiful gameplay.

    The bad - Those loading screens without an SSD.

    The ugly - I may lose sleep and not step foot outside for a whole week.

    Awesome giveaway in memory of an awesome TPU community advocate.

    The Good: Heard it supports Mantle
    The Bad: I'm not really sure since I've only heard good and "ugly things about it.
    The Ugly: I've heard it got some pretty scathing reviews.

    Daily bump. ;)

    Also, let's plan on letting this run for another 2 days, which will put us at Tuesday. I think that'll be a good little run, and then it'll be time to draw a winner :)

    :peace:

    I'm in!

    The Good: It's by the guys that did Deus Ex:HR!
    The Bad: I don't have it yet? LOL
    The Ugly: I've heard it's not as good as any of the other Thief games.

    Seriously, stealth is awesome, and I am really hoping I win so I can give it a whirl, because I like to make my own mind up about games.

    Thanks, manofthem!!

    The good: It's a stealth game... That is MY style of game ;)
    The bad: I've been spending money left and right and don't want to chance my $$ because of ugly but want to play this game so bad at the same time
    The ugly: As some said, many people have been disappointed in this game

    The good: It's a real FPS = First Person Sneaker. No guns allowed, okay? :D
    The bad: It's not made by the original team that made T1 & T2 (Looking Glass Studio)
    The ugly: The storey is discontinuous; it doesn't pick up where the other games left.

    The good : It's a Thief game, nuff said.
    The bad : Not a lot of open world, too many loading screens from what I've seen
    The ugly : Despite the bad reviews I hope this is at least decent to play

    Thanks for the giveaway and kind gesture!

    I played the original a good while back and the game play was different from anything else I'd played. I remember some extremely tense moments in the game trying to sneak around guards.
    I'd like to see how the modern version translates this and whether it is as good as the original.
    The good: It's Theif
    The bad: Reviews haven't been too kind
    The ugly: Having played the original, this one may disappoint.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Been wanting to try this so I'll throw in my hat.

    The Good: I've heard the Theif series in the past was wonderful, so it has that going for it..
    The Bad: Reviews haven't been as welcoming as one would've hoped.
    The Ugly: It isn't Dishonored 2 as I wanted. :D

    Damn, MoT, not supposed to be morose on a Monday...

    thanks for the giveaway!! I'm signing in for this one.

    good, bad and ugly.

    Good is obvious. It's a Thief title!!! (Shut up, Duke Nukem...) Loved the first two, my daughter's playing one of them for the first time on XBox right now :). Recent flops Duke and Deus Ex notwithstanding, it really can't be THAT bad :)

    Bad? It's not Looking Glass? That oughta cover it, all by itself. Eidos/Square Enix is not bad, but they're console heavy, as indicated by the console support. I'm afraid that it would have been written to be too console friendly, limiting what it's capable of :(

    Ugly? I'm afraid that while it might be good enough to rate well by today's standards, those of us who loved the originals will find it a bit short. Still, would love the chance to see the final product!!

    thanks again for the trouble, MoT. Excellent giving back to the community, as always.

    I know nothing about the game, but would like to try it.

    The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is one of my favorite movies of all time.

    Good - Game looks gorgeous.
    Bad - No moss arrows, I think they replaced it with something else :shadedshu:
    Ugly - Short game, from what I've read.

    Thanks!!

    The bad about this game is that it teaches you how to be a sneaky little thief which might result in you causing troubles in Whiterun, and if you disrespect the law...
    But if there's one good thing about this game it's the fact that gods gave Garret two hands, and he uses them both for his weapon. You should respect that.
