Dishonored - Made good progress over the weekend. Not sure what the current Chapter # is, but I'm pretty sure I'm closer to the end of the game than the beginning. I'm currently infiltrating the lighthouse stronghold.
All in all, a fun and well-designed game. The stealth aspect is done well, and the availability of different paths/methods to accomplish mission goals is excellent. The latter pleasantly reminds me of OG Deus Ex.
I already have the desire to play through the game again as a cold-blooded killer (I'm being as non-lethal as possible in this play-through). Replaying a game (without a multi-year gap in between) is kind of rare for me, but this one can actually feel different when taking different measures. Not just subtle mood or move-set changes, like most other games. Good stuff.
I really want to play this game.
Two guys I worked with back at EB Games (when I worked there this game was showing trailers) had 'predicted' the game was going to be 'awful' based on the trailer. I'm glad they were wrong. :P
Indeed they were. It's a good game, IMO. It admittedly doesn't do anything really new, but everything it does, it does very
well. The room for creativity and innovation is simply awesome. You can tell the developers put a good amount of thought into it. Well worth the price for which one can buy it these days.
