After a break from video games due to life, and after having this game for quite a while without playing it… I have to say, I’m really enjoying this one. Even as I am utterly grossed out by the Bloodflies, and even though I’m not sure I like my first choice for unlocked ability (I picked one that works like Mirror Image, and illusions aren’t the easiest thing to work with…), and even as I’m still trying to decide whether I want to put the work in for a non-lethal playthrough… I’m having fun.
Dishonored is slowly coming back to me – it’s a stealth game, but also one where you might actually explore and go everywhere, collecting items and such. In a game like Deus Ex you might miss whole areas or regions of a map because you stealth or bypass past them; in Dishonored, there’s more of a thought that you go to these places. There are collectibles to get, and the Heart to track the most important of these down. You don’t collect standard Experience Points, either – you collect Runes towards unlocking additional abilities and upgrades. So the exploration and collection is key.
Anyway, I have some things to do, and I’ve been playing, so… I’ll leave you with this fun live action trailer for the game.
