Glad to hear you like the PC game. I've been debating whether to get it. I was just thinking before I logged on here I might take the plunge. I probably will.

maybe wait a while. Its still too soon to be worth it. Let it cheapen up a bit

Capt. Huggy Face May 22nd, 2012 22:51

Too late. :Already got it. :p

Not far into it, but enjoying it so far. Also, couldn't resist picking up the first three Thief games on Steam in a bundled sale totaling roughly $13.50.
