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.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

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.

Don't bother with the deluxe version. Get the regular one. There is literally nothing in the deluxe version that's worth paying money for.

Agreed, that $42 coupon deal is sweet.

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.

Ok is it me or are the Steam Flash Sale timers going nuts? It was set so 1 set had 1 time, and the other the same, but earlier today it was all sorts of nuts and the Fable 3 sale had 2 hours to go is now back up over 3 1/2 hours.
Top 3 Flash titles are about 3 hours ahead of the bottom 3 titles. Iirc, each title stays on Flash for 6 hours, after 3 hours they move up to the top bar.

Gratz to you and Blue, nin and any of you guys and gals!

Hang in there, this is the toughest time of year. Apples are in season and a great snack food. Eat'um an hour before meals or as often as you want with NO ill side effect. Well, unless of course your allergic or intolerant. Personally I love Fuju apples, crispy sweet and tarty just like my women, well if I could afford some women!


Forum Server was down for me too.

I seem to have the metabolism of a runner, in spite of being amazingly sedentary.

I envy you. In addition to getting older, I also take some meds that are known for slowing metabolism. Having said that, I've lost about 25-30 pounds this year, and I'm down to about 220-225. I've eaten more healthy in the last 6 months than I have my entire life, and it's actually not bad.

Gratz to you and Blue, nin and any of you guys and gals!

The only way is to treat rockstar the way we treat companies like ea and ubi, to name a few. Fight back, stop buying their games. Yes, this means their console games.

If it's true their games only sell a couple hundred thousand PC copies on Steam....then it's true their games suck donkey balls, just like the management.

Indie games without PR, sell more.
I dont think thats true, isn't it usually one of the highest games played in GFWL?
I was responding to someone's comment saying "They only sold a couple hundred thousand copies" as one of the main reasons they were not going to port it. I should have quoted it, but read 10 or 20 posts afterwards and forgot.

I would have thought they sold many more, so I was being flippant about rockstar. Honestly never play their games or keep up with them, becasue of the way they treat customers.

Thankfully, when ever I forget why I never play their games....I know, I can always count on them to remind me, they are a pathetic developer.

Grabbed SIN, it's defiantly worth $2.50, if they removed that shitty ass release drm.

What DRM? From what I remember, the original game did a disk check, but that was patched out ages ago.
Unless by DRM you mean Steam?
It's been so long, maybe I'm remembering incorrectly. Most games att only took about 10 seconds to load. At release SIN took an average of 60 seconds to load if you were lucky, maybe it was just poor/rushed programming.

On episodes, wasn't there also some game breaking bugs at release when Steam was still new and working out the bugs. So many games and so much time has past, hard to recall atm.

I actually hear getting sleep, helps the memory.
