  •  CoD is only one game..... (10+ / 0-)

    .....by chance, I was in the middle of writing a review for the new game Dishonored when this incident occurred (I'll post it eventually). In Dishonored, one of the surprise hits of the season, the game gets tougher and more unpleasant in accord with the amount of violence you choose to employ. The ideal playthrough is to move through the entire game without killing a single person and without even being noticed. As one of the developers said, it's the first assassination game where you don't have to kill anybody (there is a non-lethal way to dispose of all of your targets, if you are patient enough to look for it).

      Dishonored was incredible.

      I played through the game twice.  The first time without killing anyone.  The second time I played through killing nearly everyone.  See how things changed from one play through to the next was very worthwhile.  The nonviolent path leads to a much happier ending.

          if you play on PC, Steam is sure to have it up for some ridiculous discount sometime in the next couple weeks.

          Dishonored is a good time. Be forewarned though, if you DO choose to use lethal means, it can get a bit gory. Still, it's a better game if you don't.

            ....but the game will make you pay a price for your indulgences. That's the interesting thing.
