Thread: Real life... association with Thief

    Parkour - 7 man rooftop relay

    I’m sure videos of this practice have been posted before so nothing new but yesterday I witnessed half a dozen youngsters climbing on to the rear of shop premises in daylight (a mere two storeys high) and I could see the route they had climbed from the pavement. Pretty straightforward. Presumably they’re wannabe practitioners of something my neighbour says is called Parkour, originating in France. I quickly found recent videos by experienced locals and although this is not their most daring exploit (and something that Garrett would easily do in Thief) in real life on local landmarks it's quite frightening and I swore several times watching this.

    yeah but Garrett has quicksave

    for me this brings Mirror's Edge (and especially its sequel, the awkwardly named Mirror's Edge: Catalyst) to mind more than thief; in thief i tend to move slowly and look around for loot, but mirrors edge is all about keeping forward momentum and route-finding on the fly. love that game!

    Edit: @16:27 - these guys are definitely using new_mantle!

    God yes, aren’t they!
    It’s bad enough when I hear Garrett die in Thief but I had to halt this video on the second viewing. In Thief I often crouch to move forward on long narrow ledges. Admittedly that’s difficult in real life (especially with my knees) but as a minimum I’d want to at least face inward to the wall, hanging on by my fingerprints, not outward as this guy does.

    Edit: I take the point about Mirror's Edge which I never played but see is described as being about a parkour courier. Having said that, I (as Garrett) run long distances at times in sheer panic when I haven't a pre-planned escape route (though not on roof tops).

    Mask used by the Cultus Sabbati Neopagans. Reminds me of a precursor mask with Pagan elements
