  • Blog Post: Dishonored

    Never have I felt so engrossed in a game other than Dishonored. With tons of options and player choice, it's simply wonderful to wield abilities and powers to take down enemies with stealth or rampage-style attacks. Manipulating the battlefield in a combat sequence is a genuine thrill and feels great... More
  • Blog Post: The next step down from Bioshock in FPS's

    Dishonored is a game that I bought mostly out of appreciation for someone creating a new game that wasn't a sequel to an already successful franchise. I'm about tired of Call of Duty, Gears of War, Halo, and Assassins Creeds. It was a GREAT buy. If you enjoy the kind of ingenuity that Bioshock... More
  • Blog Post: A Tale of Vengeance and Honor

    Too many games today are content with the idea of funneling you down a corridor giving you a series of opposing heads to dispose of or blatantly point out that there is only one way to get from point A to point B. Try any other option and the results you will most likely get is complete and utter failure... More
  • Blog Post: On Dishonored

    · Concept: Get revenge for being framed for the murder of the recently slain Empress as an alternate-history supernatural assassin/elite bodyguard. · Graphics: The “painting” style is unique and cool. I like it, but that doesn’t mean you will. It lends everything a somewhat... More
  • Blog Post: RFXRage's Review of Dishonored

    Rarely in today's industry does a new IP break through the wall of games more established such as Halo or Assassin's Creed, but in the case of Dishonored, it is proven that that such an event still occurs. Dishonored is a fresh breath of originality and creativity infused with addictive gameplay... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored - The Power of Player Freedom

    Player choice and freedom is an idea many video games try desperately to capture. Ultimately, the vast majority fail, instead only offering brief glimpses of what a game could be like if it truly let you play it your way. Dishonored is not one of those games. In the dark, steam punk, rat plague ridden... More
  • Blog Post: Good Game, but is kept from greatness by a few bad decisions

    Gameplay Dishonered's gameplay is great to say the least but certain things in it make it short of fantastic. The stealth is enjoyable and well done but often times enemy awareness seems strangely high. One of the main issues of the game is avoiding certain enemy types is ridiculously painstaking... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored: Become A Steampunk Grim Reaper (For A Price)

    Dishonored is my favorite game of 2012. Just thought I'd get that out of the way. Anyway, Dishonored also successfully made me count down the days till the release, and caused me not to read or watch any previews of the game out of fear of spoilers. Did the game live up to all my hype? The seven... More
  • Blog Post: Blood, Runes, and More Blood

    *SPOILER* In my time, I’ve played my fair share of video games. From hacking and slashing, all the way up to strategic warfare, I’ve seen it all. Needless to say, it becomes boring when a game gets remade over and over, with the same mechanics, same story line, but with a different set of... More
  • Blog Post: DownPlay Reviews #4 - Dishonored

    Sandwiched in a year, full of 2s, 3s, and sequels of various subtitles lies Dishonored, a first-person stealth-action game that sticks out this year as one of the only big-name AAA games to be new intellectual properties. To be honest, it’s a huge relief to see at least one title that doesn’t have an... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored Review: A Whale of a Time

    The tale of revenge is a classic one, going as far back to the depressing Hamlet to the less than modern The Crow . Dishonored weaves a similar story, and much like the latter from above, is best told with murderous intent. Choice is becoming a new hallmark in games, giving players a greater sense of... More
  • Blog Post: Great job, Arkane

    Many people were very excited for this game when it first came out, and with good reason. This game is what happens when you get a great developer like Arkane Studios back in the fight after a long break. Most of the games elements are executed flawlessly, though this game has its errors just like any... More
  • Blog Post: Great game cut short

    The game is very fun and offers a lot of ways to play. The main downfall is how short it is. I have beaten the game 4 times, seen every ending, gotten all achievements, all in under 30 hours. That simply should not happen. Another downfall of the game is the magic system. There are very few actually... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored Review (SPOILERS!)

    In a world where franchises like Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed dominate the video game landscape, making a completely new game is a big risk. It's also a risk the major publishers and investors don't like to take. Why risk pouring money and resources into something that might not sell... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored; or should I say Fable IV?

    Dishonored is very enjoyable blood soaked path to revenge. But while the game does boast some original aspects it still very much felt uninspired and over all felt like I was playing the true successor to Fable II more so than original game, with a tiny twist of BioShock. So how did the game actually... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored Review: Slice Or Sneak Your Way Through Dunwall

    I can't say that I've ever been a fan of the stealth genre before Dishonored. Sure, I've enjoyed games like Metal Gear Solid, and the Batman: Arkham games, but I've always been relatively awful at the actual sneaking around, undetected bit, and I see my fair share of "game over"... More
  • Blog Post: Good game, bad plot.

    I wasn't sure what to feel when I first heard about Dishonored. I read a few articles about it. When a game interests me, I tend to hold off on the media band wagon so that when I play the game, my experience is fresh and without expectations. The opening sequence attempts to tutor you in the art... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored - True Consequences For Blood Lust

    It's about time we had a real "consequence system" setup for the ending of a assassin's playground of murder and/or stealth. This game provides you a tempting opportunity to be both at every turn, corner, and step! Dishonored does it!!! If you decide to be murderous and dark, the game... More

    An innovative stealth game that gives the player tons of room and interesting toys to play with Dishonored is a title being published by Bethesda, the RPG giant, and developed by Arkane studios, the developers of such games as Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. With such names being listed people in the... More
  • Blog Post: Dishonored: The Consequence of Choice

    It's always refreshing to see a new IP among the avalanche of sequels that smothers gamers this time of the year. While most look forward to the comfortable return of triple-A titles like Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, and Halo, it's nice when gamers can give something new a shot. It's... More
