Eidos Montreal; Square Enix: Bring back Stephen Russell for Thief 4.
1200 supporters! And my personal rant.
Apr 8, 2013 — Thank you all, as always! Don't stop spreading the word.
This one's a bit of a lengthy update containing my personal thoughts on the whole situation.
I've heard that Eidos are removing threads and polls supporting or linking the petition on their official forums. As well as that they are banning users who post these things. I've also noticed that comments are being removed on their official YouTube channel's videos. Comments which are usually supporting the petition or Russell.
It personally angers me how Eidos treats us like we have no grasp on how games work, and are giving us laughable excuses as to why Stephen Russell is not making a return. They're replacing him because of motion capture, which supposedly looks more lifelike and immersive. We don't really care about that. In fact, the game will be -less- immersive if it had motion capture without Russell, instead of Russell but a badly animated Garrett. The voice is what gave him life, not the animation.
