News Comments > Dishonored 2 Trailer

Can't wait to dive back into this one. The city very much looks the same (grimy, used) in an awesome way...they specifically mentioned a goal of more verticality in the demo, and that's always welcome.

Interesting trailer...curious if it ties into the original at all, or if it just shares the name.

And where's my Wolfenstein????

The initial 5-10 excitement of "quake", only to see it turn into an arena match...

Oh well...everything else they showed looked neat.

Popped onto the site kind of late today and noticed the post count kind of high for Out of the Blue and figured Blue was giving away free grilled bacon. Sadly, this is not the case.

+1

Pretty much. Oh hey, e3! Thank god...was a little disappoint Wolf wasn't mentioned, but Dishonored looked awesome. Prey was...different...looked like, at least so far, it only shared the named.

nin would ya link your SS2 mods if ya don't mind. Sadly I never played either but would like to give SS2 a go but *whispers* I'm a graphics whore

Absolutely! I bookmarked a lot of the shit, to use again in the future:

I started with the newbie modding guide and downloaded SS2 Tool.

This tells you where to place SS2Tool, depending on your OS/version (steam or gog).

Hopping back to the newbiwe modding guide, I grabbed:

Vurt's Flora Overhaul

Tacticool complete for weapons

Four Hundred for improved textures

Rebirth for character updates

SHTUP-ND for object texture upgrades

You'll notice some of those links have multiple files names, which aren't always clear. Here is the file names I downloaded, and they all seem to work together fine so far.

Extract each mod into it's own folder under <install path>\System Shock 2\DMM (in my case C:\Games\System Shock 2\DMM).


Important part:

After you've installed SS2Tool and placed your mods, from your start menu, run SS2 Blue Mod Manager. It found my game path and mod paths correctly, but you want to double check those. THEN place the mods in the order listed here in the newbie modding guide. Order is apparently important, so be careful. Note that I didn't download/install every mod they mentioned, so your list may be shorter. It's the order that's important.

Hit the "exit and start game" button on the mod manager. Start a new game, walk out of the tram, turn right, and run up to the payphone. If the numbers are blue, and the screen is legible, your mods are installed correctly.

Good luck! It's really not that bad!

edit: Also, optionally create a user.cfg in your system shock 2 folder that includes one or both of:
no_spawn
gun_degrade_rate 0

That removes enemy respawns (which I hate) and sets weapon degradation to 0, which I also hate.

so, a little bird (who works at blizzard) told me recently that they're working on a single player component for overwatch. possibly out next year.

That would get me off the bench. Maybe an announcement at blizzcon?

Gog's sale is ongoing right now, which I think Blue should post as well:

GoG Top 10
1. Witcher 3 Expansion Pass
2. Witcher 3 B&W
3. Witcher 3
4. Witcher 3 + Expansions
5. Pillars of Eternity: Hero Edition
6. Pillars of Eternity: The White March Expansion (1 & 2)
7. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
8. Homeworld Remastered Collection
9. Shadowrun Hong Kong - Extended Edition
10. Neverwinter Nights 2 Complete


I've dropped about $50 there so far...som far deals, and grabbed some old stuff.

After watching a couple of episodes of a let's play, I jumped back into a modded system shock 2 all weekend. Graphics look slick now...

Just ot back from warcrack, I thought it was decent. Very much a movie made for the fans...if you liked the series, I'd be a little surprised if you didn't like the movie.


I heard the story is based on actual Warcraft, the story that was first told in the RTS games and not WoW? That's pretty cool if so and makes me want to see it more (really hate wow and like the story from the originals). I've read other sites where people complain that it's not a "wow" story which makes me laugh. They actually think "wow" is the start of it.

I only played skirmish mode in WC1-3 (and not story) before playing WOW. So it was a nice lore blast for me. The dwarves are only shown in a few scenes, and I don't recall seeing gnomes at all. The (pre?) blood evles show up in like 2 scenes? No undead. The "horde" are just the orcs, no taurens or anything. And it basically covers the creation of the portal connecting the two worlds - although Garona is present, so somehow it's happened before? I'm not much familiar with her back story, other than she's half human, half orc. Based on events at the end, I'm assuming we see why deadwind pass is devoid of life, after Karazan explodes. I've heard there's a few liberties taken here and there, but nothing jumped out at me. Though, again, that may be my lack of knowledge on it's history...

I'm still amazed how much I liked it, and have been thinking about it since yesterday. I'd be tempted to see it again, but I'll probably just save my money for a blu/digital release. Hoping an extended cut is included, as even at two hours, I wanted to see more. It's very much a movie for the fans, in an awesome way.

You may want to look here. If you look at the crowdfunding timeline in top right part of the page and change it to show for months instead of the default days, you can clearly see that the donations are drying up. It only goes back to last November but, you can see that the money donations are in decline and they have been since November. If they need 3 million a month to maintain, by this graph they are not getting it. Granted, they have raised 115 million as of right now. *shrug*

Well, we're only 11 days into may (so it's the lowest), but yeah, good point.

Everyone working there is a grade A asshole apparently and these people deserve jail time at the very least.

Jesus Christ, dude, chill the fuck down. 95% of the people working for Gawker are just people who reports on news and write articles in their given field. Jalopnik employs some of the best car writers in the business. What do they have to do with that piece of shit AJ Daulerio??

IO9 has lost a few good people, but it's still a great site for Sci-fi, but stories and the people that post there. I worry about it the most, post acquisition.
