Original Thread: Let's actually break into the vault this time [Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves]



Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves is a "platform stealth game" according to Wikipedia and the third entry in the Sly series (Serperoth and I let's played the other two games here). Released in 2005 on the Playstation 2, this game is pretty much the same of what you got in Sly 2, except with some changes in our favorite thief-gang's moveset.

Things... really didn't end off on a high note in Sly 2. With Bentley in a wheelchair after nearly having his legs bitten off and Murray leaving the gang, it's a broken Cooper Gang we find in Sly 3. After meeting with an old friend of Sly's dad, Sly and Bentley do however find out about the legendary Cooper Vault, which have existed for millennia. When they get there, they find out that the island it's laying on has been taken over by a baboon called Dr. M, who's been trying to get into the vault for years without any luck and has made the island into a fortress during said time. With no way to get in without some other gang members, Sly and Bentley sadly has to abandon the vault for now, while looking for new thieves that can help out.

Serperoth will just like before help me with commentating on this game and every update will have a cut (no commentary over cutscenes) and an uncut (all talk all the time) version. This is being played on the HD re-release of the game, so expect to see some wide-screen issues. With that out of the way, let's play Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves!

Name: Sly Cooper
Our raccon hero and leader of the Cooper Gang. Coming from a long line of thieves, Sly was about to acquire the Thievious Racconus from his father when a ferocious gang of thieves called Fearsome Five killed Sly's parents and ripped the thieving book into pieces. Sent to an orphanage, where he would meet his friends Bentley and Murray, he wouldn't be able to take revenge for his parents murder until some years later, where he would also restore the Thievious Racconus and have a sweet boss fight in a volcano with the leader of the Fearsome Five, Clockwerk, while riding around with a jetpack. Despite Clockwerk falling into dangerous magma, his pure hatred for the Cooper Clan kept him alive and Sly had to find all the parts so that they wouldn't fall into the wrong hands. Even though the gang managed to find all the parts, Clockwerk still reformed and it wasn't until they took him down once more and destroyed his hate chip that the robot owl died. Now on the hunts for gang members that can help him break into his family vault.

Name: Bentley
The brains and master hacker of the Cooper Gang. Used to be a snarky shut-in who only told us to jump and press the circle button all the itme, but appears to have gained some confidence and courage throughout the events of the past games and now is a central part of the team even during field missions. Having his legs crushed by Clockwerk haven't stopped him from being helpful too, as he decide to upgrade his wheelchair into something that Q would be jealous of. He can even steal stuff from enemies now!

Name: Murray
Murray definitely took the events of Sly 2 the hardest and blamed himself for Bentley's paralysis. As he felt that he was a burden to his best friends, Murray left the team in order to get his thoughts in order and to quell his anger. Instead he went to Australia and found a shaman of the "Dreamtime", who told him to go on a soul-cleansing journey across the globe. Eventually ended up in Venice, where he's been told to not return back to his master until "the black water runs pure".

Name: Carmelita Montoya Fox
Inspector Fox is still Sly's love interest, but she doesn't seem to have taken Sly's usual escape from her handcuffs at the end of the second game very well, and decided to toughen up and not take any of Sly's shit anymore. Or maybe that has something to do with her new voice actress, I don't know. In any case, she also ended up in Venice to stop the tar from flowing everywhere and, despite not having any evidence, knows that Don Ocatvio and his mafia gang is behind it all. Guess she's not that bad of a cop after all.

Name: Don Octavio
As a young man, Octavio was a well known opera singer and was about to described to be the next big tenor... but just as he was about to become famous across the globe, music tastes changed and suddenly, opera wasn't very popular anymore. Furious, he was approached by some of his friends in the mafia, who recruited him into "the buisness". Octavio would soon reach the rank of Don, becoming known as Don Octavio, but he never really forgave the world for abandoning opera music and he will make it love opera again, whether they want to or not, starting in Venice where he's been pumping tar into the water for some odd reason.

Name: Dr. M
A paranoid mandrill doctor obsessed with breaking into the Cooper Vault. Like, seriously obsessed. Bought the deeds to the island the vault is on and built a ton of defenses. Seems to like creating mutant hybrids that can act as guards, like gorilla-bat-elephant-horse hybrids, and some sort of giant King Kong turtle thing. Having had no luck with breaking into the vault doesn't seem to have helped his psyche at all, so we can probably presume he's insane.

Name: The Guru
A koala and master of the "Dreamtime", as well as Murray's new master, The Guru excel in everything peaceful and some parts un-peaceful as well. Although he cannot attack on his own, he posses enough psychological power to take over the minds of others by jumping on their back, as well as transform into something completely different to the naked eye. This didn't stop violent dingoes to crash his humble tent and stow him away in a make-shift prison, but hey, he still has plenty of power for such a small creature!

Name: The Mask of Dark Earth
If you didn't get this from the name already, this is an evil mask that has returned from the depths of the earth, thanks to all the mining going on in Australia. Unlike most other villains in the Sly Universe, The Mask doesn't seem to lead any sort of gang of his own, but rather takes over the minds of others, as well as enlarge them and give them more power. Clearly an environmental message: Stop digging in our sacred old rocks, or evil masks will appear out of nowhere and mess everything up. Also, there doesn't seem to be any concept art of The Mask anywhere, so all you get is this in-game picture. Sorry about that!

Name: The Black Baron
A flamboyant and arrogant dog (?) who has controlled the dog-fighting air space for the last couple of years, defeating challengers left and right. thanks to his gunship blimps. Outside of that, no one knows much of him, not even his real name. But perhaps a silly thing as identity isn't very important when the unknown man is shooting down your planes.

Name: Penelope
A genius Dutch mouse with a love for and exemplary skill in remote-controlled vehicles, Penelope is one of the Black Baron's mechanics, thinking that he is the best of the best, even going so far as to not join the Cooper Gang unless we beat the big mustache himself. Her love for tech and skill at Photoshop rivals that of Bentley's.

Name: Dimitri Lousteau
A party-loving marine iguana who used to be part of the Klaww Gang, where he printed false money and sold illegal spice on the black market. After Sly defeated him, he seemingly turned from his criminal ways and became a simple dance instructor... but somehow, he found his way back in jail. Thankfully, Sly ended up saving him, and is now the commentator for the ACES competition.

Name: Muggshot
A mean, gun-toting bulldog, who after being picked on by bullies, and with some inspiration from mobster movies, decided to start working out until literally half of him was muscle that could beat the crap out of anyone that had made fun of him. Used to be a part of the Fiendish Five, the same gang that killed Sly's father, but was beaten by Sly in Mesa City, thanks to concentrated life. Unlike Dimitri, Muggshot stayed on his criminal path and picked up a taste for dog-fighting between games, where he's renowned for his brutal and vicious tactics.

Name: Panda King
After being turned down by Chinese royals who believed his firework techniques were lacking, the Panda King became a ruthless explosions master, who threatened villages with being buried in snow unless they paid "avalanche security money". If that wasn't enough villainy, he also was part of the Furious Five, the gang that killed Sly's parents and ripped apart the Thiveous Racconnus. After his defeat at the hands of Sly, he went back to his family and took care of his daughter Jing King.... until she was taken away by General Tsao, who also forced Panda King into exile, where he meditated upon his greatest defeat over and over again.

Name: General Tsao
A sexist, disrespectful and ruthless dictator, Tsao is obsessed with his family line and want to make it the greatest in all of the world. He seems to have respected Panda King while he still was criminal, as Tsao wants to marry his daughter Jing King for the only purpose of uniting the Tsao and King bloodlines, even forcing Panda King into exile to make sure he would never interfere with the wedding plans.

Name: Captain LeFwee
A pirate parrot who, despite his size, has become the de facto ruler of Bloodbath Bay (even though it's supposed to be a lawless place). Merciless, intelligent, egotistical and just kinda creepy, he might be the greatest adversary that the Cooper Gang has ever faced, if only because he's one of the few villains who keep an eye on their stolen stuff.
