Ships Ahoy - Dishonored

The Bethesda Blog celebrates the release of Dishonored, the new stealth/action game from Arkane Studios. They offer links to reviews and Yogscast videos, as well as some Protips for Dishonored, which come from actual pros in this case. If you still need help after reading those, they also note the Dishonored with the Official Strategy Guide from Brady Games is now available. Here's the description of the game:

You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the Empress. Framed for her murder and driven by revenge, you must become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card.

As you navigate a world torn apart by plague and oppressed by a government armed with strange new technologies, the truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city.

The choices you make will determine the fate of the world, but no matter what happens your old life is gone forever.

It's really good, very unique art style. PC port has a lot of options, performance is fantastic and game is bug free so far. It reminds me a lot of Deus Ex, the stealth elements are very rewarding and well implemented with distance, light and noise detection. It is really nice having first person lean too. The story and setting are pretty interesting, haven't seen this kind of world building in a long time. There are no real RPG elements though, you can upgrade weaponry but you don't have persistent stats.

Someone else described it as Deus Ex meets Bioshock and that feels pretty close but doesn't do it justice. I can't speak to the total game length but it will depend a lot on how much you like to explore and find hidden paths. You can do the whole intro mission in 5 minutes or you can do it in 30, it all depends on your approach. The reviews claim anywhere from 5-30 hours for a story run which seems about right. I'm having a blast with it so its well worth it at any length. It's the first truly unique IP I've seen all year and they did a lot of interesting stuff with the world and gameplay.

It sucks that this and XCOM came out at the same time, both are great games and neither should be ignored.
