Review: Dishonored (PC)

October 10, 2012 // 5 Comments

Dishonored (PC [Reviewed], Playstation 3, Xbox 360) Developer: Arkane Studios Publisher: Bethesda Genre(s): First Person RPG/FPS Sim Released: October 9, 2012 ESRB Rating: M – Mature Arkane Studios consists of veterans from the Deus Ex series, Half life series, Thief games and has been 3 years in the making and I’m happy to report the wait was well worth it. It would have been huge shock and arguably one of the biggest letdowns in gaming in years had it not been given the pedigree of the talent that created this game.

It’s the week of the interactive trailer for games that come out October 9th apparently. Earlier this week we had the epic XCOM interactive trailer that basically served as a demo tutorial, and today Bethesda has released an interactive trailer for Dishonored titled “Path to Revenge.” There’s a branch in this trailer that allows for a non-violent playthrough, which is how I want to actually play the game.  The trailer is best played in full screen.

Check Out This 30 Second TV Spot for Dishonored

September 28, 2012 // 0 Comments

Dishonored is coming to stores in North America in 11 days, on October 9th. The above video is a TV spot that’s running to advertise the game, and if I didn’t already know about the game it would definitely make me interested. It’s a really good 30 second TV spot. Maybe too much killing in it though. I only say that though because I’m really wanting to play through this game without killing anyone, and judging from all the stuff I’ve seen on the game, that’s going to be quite a challenge. Thankfully it’s a challenge I’ll gladly take on. [...]
