Re: [RPG Review] Dishonored: Story-driven roleplaying

I've never played Thief or the Hitman series, so not sure.

There's a bunch of reviews out there with people comparing this game as a cross between Deus Ex and Assassins Creed.

Where they get Deus Ex from, I don't know. I just don't see it.

Possibly from the power selection? I don't really see Deus Ex either.

Just got to a major plot action. I was trying to play through as the good guy, sparing as many guards as possible, and even "disappearing" some of the top bad guys when the merciful option presented itself.

But fuck, no way, not anymore. I wasn't very emotionally attached so far into the game--the steampunk Borderlands visual style wasn't doing it for me, so I was acting as the merciful white knight for extra challenge.

But the unexpected turn of events took me off guard. I'm killing everyone I come across from here on out. Fucking vengeance time!

haha, so far on my first play though, I'm killing every single person in sight. I haven't hit the plot twist yet though, I got a feeling of what it entails.

Supposedly there's a different ending for being ruthless and one for doing limited amount of killing.

There are 3 different endings. Low Chaos and 2 High Chaos ones.

I don't know how to do one of those anti-spoiler blacked out text thing here so I won't say anymore..

Low Chaos: You save the city and the plague goes away.

High Chaos 1: You save Emily, but the city spirals down ever further down the chaotic rabbit hole as the plague runs rampant in the streets unabated.

High Chaos 2: You don't save Emily. The city is plunged into pure chaos, with the plague spreading everywhere, whilst Corvo and others (i.e. the nobles) vie for control.

Well I beat it. Definitely worth the money, and it's good to see a new IP.

Nasty plot had me dispense with my RP and turn me into an ungodly vengeance machine, killing everything in my path. I spared no one.

I gotta say the game is good at making you want to kill everything that moves.

I like how it snuck on me with the plot twist. I assumed it was a typically good vs. evil, black-and-white fight, and I could trust the "good guys" to support me while I rid the city of the guys who killed the Empress.

Then you come back to find out they try to kill YOU. But that's not bad enough. They kill off everyone who was sheltering them as well--even Emily's tutor, Callista.


Efficient? Or evil?

I was already bordering high chaos as I tended to kill things in the first level, but tried to go non-lethal after that. But after that, I didn't even bother with non-lethal, I killed anything that could be killed, and even managed to save Emily.

I'm on the mission where you go back to Dunwall. I'm not sure how far I am from the end of the game, but it's gotta be getting close.

I've been given an objective to assassinate a guy on the roof top.

I can't wait to see what they do for a sequel with this game.

No kidding, I tried to start up my guy as non-lethal as possible, and I changed my mind halfway through, every upgrade makes you even more lethal.

I can hardly wait until I get that Rat Plague power...

To KrisN about Callista: If you are playing through with low chaos, Callista is actually spared, though, the butler and other maid are still killed.

Also, for those that did not know, Callista (Emily's tutor) is voiced by Cersei Lannister actress, Lena Headey.

Lena also did an awesome job in Dredd last summer.

OT but Dredd was awesome man. I barely heard of it while in theaters and thought that must mean it must not be that great but rented it anyway. I watched it twice then bought the blu ray. It's like a hyper violent Robocop - Die Hard combo set in Megacity 1. NOTHING like the Stallone film.

Dredd really reminded me of another movie that came out last year "The Raid:Redemption" extreme action and quite well done.

I managed to finish this game over the weekend. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I'm going to attempt a Ghost playthrough. I mananged to accomplish it on the very first level. I can tell it'll be extremely tough though later on.

One of the thing I hope they address if they do a sequel, is to make weapons and abilities (other then blink) have a little more meaning. Guns, crossbow, grenades, timestop, mind control, etc. really didn't seem to matter much, seeing as how you can play through the whole game easily with using only your sword or simply choking every single person out.

It was well worth the money spent.

Upgraded Blink is key for a Ghost playthrough. Slow Time/Time Stop is also very handy, though, not nearly as much as upgraded Blink.

What I would really like is more non-lethal options other than the Sleeping Darts and the Choke-Out, especially some sort of sleep power.

Yeah, upgraded Blink just ended up making nearly every other ability and weapon seem meaningless.

I also forgot to mention Bone Charms. These were another aspect of the game that fell kind of flat with me and seemed meaningless. I got the feeling of no matter which Bone Charms I equipped, it didn't really matter in the long run, because I could just Blink my out of any situation.

I got a feeling this will be addressed in the sequel. I read a lot of people had issue with this.

I thought the bone charms were neat, though, as you said, meaningless... for the most part. There were a few mana ones that were just awesome for the Ghost playthrough. However, I did not like that every single one was random when you found it in the world.
