Thief the game

With my short lived life as a gamer girl, I have not heard of the Thief (2014) before, until it was available for free for Xbox live gold members for 360 a few weeks ago.

In the beginning I was skeptical, but that changed with the opening scene of the game. After choosing my path, I began my journey as Sora.

Befriending Donald and Goofy … flying and building gummi ships with Chip and Dale … finding Moogles to sell me things … going from world to world meeting beloved characters such as Ariel, Bell, Aladdin, and more … squealing when I encountered Cloud, and swooning over Leon once again … saving the Hundred Acres Wood one page at a time … Hell, I built a gummi ship in the shape of a Cactuar! But I still wasn’t satisfied after defeating the Heartless; I needed more. Continue reading I’m still waiting.
