A Game And A Chat Ep 4: Looking (Glass) Back On Thief

This week’s episode of A Game And A Chat is very special. Very special indeed. For one, I’ve got two whole guests this time – namely, former Thief: The Dark Project director Greg LoPiccolo and longtime Thief series designer/Thief: Deadly Shadows director Randy Smith. Yes, it is time to talk (and play) all things Thief. Classic Thief, nu-Thief, and everything in between. Expect stories from the dank depths of the first three Thieves’ development chambers, inside info on what could’ve been, and opinions from series vets on Eidos Montreal’s reinvention of their storied stealther. This is one you absolutely should not miss.

We’ll be kicking off at 11 AM PT/7 PM GMT. Tune in below. 

Update: We’re having some technical troubles. New kick off ETA coming shortly.

Update 2: No end in sight to the technical issues. We’re rescheduling for the same time tomorrow. Apologies to everyone for what was, frankly, an unmitigated disaster.

Update 3: I finally got Thief working with Twitch! So it’s a lock: tomorrow at 11 AM PT/7 PM GMT. This will finally happen.

Update 4: This feature is cursed, clearly. A scheduling issue has come up, so we’re doing this tomorrow at 2 PM PT/10 PM GMT. A late, spooky night show for Thief. Kinda makes sense I guess.

    Conspiracy theory time: These “technical troubles” are just a way to get me to hit F5 enough times to make all of RPS millionaires from the ad views, isn’t it?

  2. GamesInquirer says:

    Play Thief properly please, don’t use the knowledge and experience of 16 years to cheese it in order to make New Thief seem better to new fans by saying such and such wouldn’t happen in it! Also, use TFix and whatever the equivalent NewDark patch was for Thief II in order to make them a bit easier on the eyes for new users (and probably easier for you to stream with them in higher resolution, newer OS, etc). Configure your controls! And maybe show off some awesome fan missions like T2X and even The Dark Mod. You have the time to prepare for all this and more now this has been delayed, making it betterer!

    Nathan can’t get the gameplay footage to show up in the stream, it’s either a small window or none at all

  4. MrThingy says:

    Did you try switching it off and on again?

    • RPSRSVP says:

      I think he did but the last thing Nathan said was “Fuck everything” so I guess it didn’t work out.

    I guess you could say we were robbed of this interesting feature.

  6. bill says:

    Sounds like a good idea. Although Thief is probably the worst game ever for streaming to an audience while having to entertain them and make snarky comments.

    Still sounds interesting though. Best game ever.

    Well, this thing is turning more and more into some dark project…

    Obligatory advice to use the latest patch which brings Thief/Thief2 up to DX9 and supports modern resolutions.
