GameTap Thursday: A Thief in the deadly shadows


GameTap shines a light in the shadows and finds the thief Garrett hiding there with the list of new games for the service this week. The highlight, of course, is Garrett's final adventure in Thief: Deadly Shadows. Considering Garrett is currently unemployed since Ion Storm has ceased to be and Eidos hasn't mentioned any new games, maybe we can hire him to find documentation on what GameTap's endgame is with all their recent writer hires? Anyway, new games for the week are:

Thief: Deadly Shadows (PC) - Garrett finds himself pulled into a sandbox-style adventure revolving around the Last Glyph. This stealth game depends on your standard fare of getting through missions without killing anyone ... because you're a thief, not a Hitman.
Delta Force Xtreme (PC) - It's all the fun of Delta Force, but, you know, to the extreme ... sorry, X-treme!
Delta Force Task Force Dagger (PC) - Less "xtreme," but a perfectly fine tactical shooter. Infiltrate enemy compounds as a member of one of many elite agency or military groups.
Hospital Tycoon (PC) - Run a hospital responsibly and just try not to get sued. Like any other tycoon game, be as fiscally responsible as possible and just grow your hospital.
Praetorians (PC) - It's like Rome: Total War ... but not.
Championship Wrestling (C64) - Two pixelated blobs in spandex enter a ring -- one pixelated blob leaves.
