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.

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.

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.

Red dead redemption GOTY (with all DLC) for xbox/ps3 is $15 at walmart (order online with in store pickup), and amazon.

I gave up on waiting for rockstar at that price. I generally don't own much or even play much console games (probably been 6-8 months since I turned on the xbox), but for that game I'll make an exception.

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.

Yeah as nin said, hard to compete with the COD/Halo, as this is very much a thinking man's shooter/stealth game.

Ok, I bought Dishonored. With the code and my remaining credit left over from buying Gods and Kings it came out to $20 so that's not too shabby. It better be good you guys! *shakes a fist menacingly*


Seriously, I can't imagine anyone NOT liking it. And it's disappointing it flew under the radar, and kind of got lost in the big fall shuffle. It deserves a lot better than that.

I think there's a surfeit of gamer boyfriends. Its the gamer girlfriends that there's a shortage of

Yeah but it's finding one that's actually in shape, masculine, and has no interest in ever going into a Pottery Barn that I'm looking for. Oh and not afraid of playing Fruit Ninja (or any Kinect game) while intoxicated and in front of others lol.

Every girl gamer I've met fits that terrible "Gurl Gamer" trope. It makes me glad that my girlfriend isn't a gamer.

Dark Souls for PC on Amazon: $15.

Dooo it.

Much as I'd like to I've heard it's just a horrendous port. Even on Steam there's a disclaimer saying you should be playing with a console controller. I seem to recall the devs saying they didn't really care about PC and it was going to be a half-assed port at best. It's hard to want to reward that sort of attitude with a sale.

Anyway, how is Dishonored? Seriously? Is is any good? What's it like? Thief? Bioshock? Is it really consolized?

I'm enjoying it even though I'm not very far into it. Has a pretty cliche starting story, and no self shadow, and I'm not sure I'm thrilled about 10 item inventory being set to a wheel (then again not sure if I can setup hot keys), but so far so good. If anything it's making me more interested in Bioshock Infinite.

Agreed, that $42 coupon deal is sweet.

You can actually buy the Deluxe version as an upgrade from the regular game from Black Lion Trading with gems if you care. Gems can be converted to/from the in-game currency.
