You're completely rambling. First you complain that they designed new maps for this DLC instead of using it for story DLC,
Yes, and this seems rambling too you?
then you say it's a quick release ala Horse Armor,
No, I mentioned it was a quick release compared to story based expansion (your having a tough time with this one). The Horse Armor was clearly an example to show a difference in expectations of expansions versus dlc. No way you could have missed the point.
and finally you mention the ending again claiming to have explained things without actually saying anything.
If you don't understand why the ending prevents a lot of variation in story based content then nothing I say will change your rambling perceptions.

If you think challenge maps are quite common, then you most likely were not a gamer pre-Horse Armor. Challenge content would only be considered common in a very short span of gaming history.

See if this is any clearer for you. Yes, I'm disappointed they are releasing maps based on a gimmick of challenges, instead of story based content. The ending had a certain CLOSURE (do you get it, I'm actually spelling it out here for you). It prevents certain story possibilities which could have taken place, in expansions.

This. Just give me a new story to play out thanks. Challenge maps? Bitch Please.
Fixed that for you.
I don't really say bitch. It's not part of my idiom. Cunt, on the other hand...
Lmao

What? What the hell are you talking about? It's a Trials type DLC, very common. What does it have to do with the ending?
In the context of what I was saying, challenge maps are a copout from adding new content; i.e. branching story or different perspective ala Half-Life Opposing Force/Blueshift. Honestly don't care how common they are it's just a quicker release. It's more of a moneyplay for people who just buy dlc site unseen. There are people who just want to mash buttons and there are people who want to be entertained and/or learn something along the way.

Maybe it's just a difference of what platform you play on, until Horse Armor developers actually had to release new content good or bad. Many of us are still laughing at the idea someone was trying to charge us for Horse Armor. Att most experienced gamers were having nothing to do with it, but console gamers ate it up like a drug. Now we have challenge maps.

That's as close as I can get without spoiling the ending for those whom haven't finished.

Not only bad for Video Game industry and PC market place, but the economy as well. Millions of jobs worldwide will be impacted. Probably why they are implementing it over 5+ years. Bastards.

I was thinking DLC couldn't get any worst, than stripping parts out of the game to sell later. Too bad they didn't use these maps for a new story.

This is why many of us had major problems with the ending cutscenes.

News Comments > Far Cry 3 Map Editor Trailer

I'm defiantly interested at this point, unless ubi does something notoriously stupid between now and release...like creating DRM of Death.

Here's hoping one day, these developers figure out how to Coop the main story. It's probably why I like Dead Island so much, despite it's many flaws. Techland broke the barrier and now (hopefully) is working to refine the weak story aspects and gameplay balance issue. Honestly these are issues most games have but don't have the benefit of full story Coop.

bah. How about fixing the freezup between chapters during the cutscenes? I cant get to chapter 3 after the rooftop.....sucks.
Not sure how badly you want to continue, but you could always try the crack. Just make damn sure your in Offline mode and back up the files you replace. So once you get past your bug, you can return your game to normal Steam.

If that's too much trouble, you could try reinstalling.

Good luck.

ugh, Now Max Payne 3 is freezing during those stupid cut scenes....wtf. Nothing in forums, etc is helping. Fuckit. Back to Call of Duty....
I seriously wish you good luck with it. Imo, it's a disaster. They killed the lore with the story and the gameplay with the cutscenes.

Too bad Dishonored didn't make top 10, though it really hasn't been 50% very long or lower like so many of the other games on the list. Wonder how the 11 - 20 list looks, surely it's in the range.

Opps. Wrong person but still completely disagree.

No wonder epic got so fucked up, with him running development. Also shows why he should never develop games, ever again.

Kickstarter is nothing like when you sold out to ms, to help destroy PC Coop gaming. Kickstarter is much better than you will ever be, mr b.

Great find, thanks Dev. Any idea if we get a code we can use on Steam? Personally I really don't want another proprietary system.

Wanted to keep this in it's own post so people who haven't completed Dishonored can avoid it. Just don't even bother looking until you complete the game. This would be of no use to first time player, because you wouldn't know what you need or want. SERIOUSLY.

One of the more frustrating issues is not being able to get the Bone Charms you want for your intended playstyle. There is a solution but it's a bit painful, since BCs are not setup like Runes. Bone Charms are spawned/created on Level Creation. This means if you Save your game BEFORE you start a new area/zone (has to be a first time level load) you can replay an area till you get the BC you want. This can be extremely frustrating if there is a non skippable cutscene. Wall so avoid this unless you are Hardcore Hardheaded.

A good example is the Distillery on the first visit (actually good for second visit too). Save before entering the zone, then just Stealth/Blink on the roof to the right building, then across the pipe, drop down and make your way to the back where the BC is waiting up on a shelf. It takes me less than 3 min to stealth back to it, since I know the timing. The 2nd trip here, is non hostile so even easier to get the BC, just save before entering.

Some zones contain 2 or 3 BCs so, I will stealth run to all 3 and decide if they are worth it. There is one BC you can Save right in front of it and if it's not what you want, just Quick Load. It's the only one in the game spawned on the spot, not zone creation. Since there are about 35 BCs, every time you get one it increases the odds next time, getting the one you want.

As a Ghost, No Kill player, with added challenge of No Hostile Standing, my main choices:
Spiritual Pool
Swift Shadow
Undertaker
Strong Arm
Fleet Fighter
Rat Scent

The obviously negative impact is you spend 30 minutes or more getting what you want. The benefit is the sooner you get what you want, the more time you have to play the game, the way you want.

Seriously, I can't imagine anyone NOT liking it

I played for like thirty minutes and it didn't grab me (so i went back to borderlands). The opening of the game was something awful.
It does have a slow start in the story sense and the several Live Action Cutscenes prevent skipping. Annoyed

It excels at Freeform Gameplay and if you like Steampunk, you be happy once you get control back after the opening scene.

Thief Collection $6.74
Best price I've seen to date for all three.

pathetic ea still hasn't released a ME2 complete package, it's been a couple of years and the 3rd game released.

Never bought or used any Gems in GW2 but did the Inventory Expanded (per toon) slot 400 gems and Bank Expanded (account wide) slot 600 gems come down in price or is this Black Friday deals? I seem to remember them being 600 and 800 respectively, in the past.
