Thief Has An Old-School Homage Mission. Which Is DLC. Sigh.

Hey, here's where there should be some good news! The upcoming Thief game, which already has people a little worried, thought it was doing the right thing by including a mission that was a straight homage to Thief II's bank heist. Which it immediately spoils by making it pre-order DLC.

I've said before how awful pre-order DLC is, but normally it's limited to fluff like alternate outfits. Cutting off access to a mission, one designed to appeal to old-school fans at that, is just about the worst.

Sometimes you completely forget Square Enix, of all companies, owns Eidos. Then days like this make you remember.

Preodering helps make sure we still get hard copies of our game and gives something nice back to people who believe in a series enough to want it day one. I don't think that's so bad.
