The Bank Job
I thought I’d mention controls real quick.
“E” is for just about Everything. “W”, “S”, “A”, “D” do what they do in most games and then a little more in certain situations. The one control you’ll forget about and which is NOT intuitive is the Right Click on the Mouse when you’re looking through keyholes/peep holes or get put into any kind of puzzle/turn knobs situation. I’ve flailed once or twice forgetting about the bloody thing. On everything else you get key hints but that! (DOH!)
Oh yeah, See this obelisk? When you buy the wrench, go take a look. There’s a plaque to collect from it but also a mysterious button that I expect will come into play later.
You can eavesdrop on the townspeople to get clues on where money and jewels may be hidden. (Turn on your subtitle option as the volume on some of these varies widely. Sound glitches?)
Isn’t that pretty?
Local bar near your fence and the dude you buy stuff from.
Mini map can be turned on on the right. Doesn’t always help. You will get lost here. lol.
The Bank. Imposing, isn’t it?
DO NOT try the bank until you’ve been able to buy the wire cutters, which help disable traps. Trust me on this.
Second floor interior.
And yes, they have alarm systems!!!! You can extinguish them with water arrows. Just make sure you are angled right. Had a blast knocking all these out. Bwahahaha
The Vault. You think getting past that means you’re almost done. And that would be wrong!
This is inside the vault. A whole new set of alarms and TRAPS! Many traps. Focus came in handy here.
They’re so sneaky! And when they say locker, they mean the small safe’s before the big vault.
The trap I missed (cause I thought I got them all) did this. Two seconds later, I was dead. Look before you touch!
The collectible loot!
Trap mechanism up there.
This guy is everywhere! Talk about EGO
The poorer side of town.
Antlers and heads in all his decorating. Eek.
Have an awesome Sunday!
