Here is an entire episode dedicated to a single game. Thief  has been a long time coming. Some have been excited to see it return. Some hopeful. Some outraged. Some resigned. But now we’ve played it and we can see the result for ourselves.
It’s not the game we hoped for, but neither is it the train wreck we feared.
The entire show is about Thief, so no timestamps. We spoil some of the themes of the story during the show, but nothing that shouldn’t be incredibly obvious after the tutorial.
At the 57-minute mark we talk about the ending, so you might want to skip that part if you’re spoiler-averse. Although as Chris says, the story is pretty much broken, and I don’t think spoilers will hurt you. And by “broken” I mean, “clearly a patchwork of different revisions of the story that don’t fit together or form a proper sequence of events”.
