Exactly. Also, I forgot to mention how disappointed I am with The City. I touched briefly on the mis-en-scene, but that isn't my only problem with it. In previous games, it felt like such a specific place, and I think a lot of this was down to its denizens' unique dialect - "Who's that taffin' around?" etc. That slang is now almost completely gone, and with it a lot of the Thief series' character. Incidental npcs now seem like mouthpieces for ham-fisted exposition, full of swearing. It's all very unsubtle. Actually, I think that might be my single biggest problem with it. The game's complete lack of subtlety.
Although I am still weirdly excited to play more of it.
