1. Dishonored Mar 20, 2013, 08:43 Beamer
 
Since no one reads this, I'll probably copy-and-paste it in the next big Dishonored thread.

Anyway, just finished this. A few thoughts:
- Played on the 360 (got it for $10 over the Holidays.) Took me a while to get into it. Honestly, I think there were FOV issues on the console. Weird reversal
- Man, was this game dark. Like, really dark. Darker than most
- Loved how it didn't explain everything. Spoiler: Was Corvo the Empresses lover? Was he Emily's father? You never really know.
- Powers felt worthless outside of Blink and Dark Vision. Rat Swarm? Never used it. Stop time? Never used it (though I see its potential.) Possession? Used it 3 times. Whirlwind? No use
- Most bone charms felt worthless, too. More health? Yeah! Move faster? Yeah! Carry bodies faster? Great for one mission. Anything else? Meh
- Most weapons felt worthless. I played High Chaos (because I tried not to quicksave often, and had to fight my way out of a predicament more than once), but still never used the pistol. Or explosive anything. Sleep darts were most useful but weren't plentiful
- Speaking of quicksave, I did 2.5 missions before I realized I could do that rather than just rely on checkpoints. Gamechanger. Man, am I conditioned the wrong way for modern games
- Really wish I'd killed Samuel


All in all I loved this game. But I'm a bit taken aback at how useless the powers and weapons were. Bullets were everywhere, but why use them? Sneaking, exploring, blinking and dark visioning, though, was awesome.
