    Hmm, what does one do with money in this game? I have over 10K to spend but nothing to spend it on :S

    Yes. You buy stuff from Piero. There is also another vendor if you do certain stuff.

    I already bought everything worthwhile every vendor has to offer, Piero included (taking into account my no-kill stealthy specialisation).

    I've just not been buying anything from anyone for, what, at least four missions now? I'm probably close to the end by now but still... it feels strange to be hoarding gold for so long.
    Feels like I'm missing something.

    On the last mission now... I've been trying to dispatch the targets non-lethally, but really want to get bloodthirsty on this one.

    Just finished my second playthrough (high-chaos), some thoughts on The Outsider :-

    He's the embodiment of chaos(the howling void), he sounds much happier in the absolute worst ending. A bored immortal playing with humanity by giving them magic and watching the fireworks.
    Essentially he's Q.

    Interesting theory. Hopefully we get a sequel to flesh it out. Think it has sold well so I'm sure we will get the sequel.
  • Deleted user 2 December 2012 19:24:14
    I'll be interested in seeing how the outsider plays in the Whalers DLC. I think Daud is a really interesting character and I'd like to see what Dunwall was like before the plague hit it.

    I started this at the weekend. Five hours in and I've finished the first proper mission. Totally rinsed that level for collectibles and missions, and had an absolute ball doing so.

    The controls are a bit imprecise at times, and despite not killing anyone in the level apparently I sent six people on their way to the afterlife according to the stats screen, but it was great fun to see so many environments (relatively) rich with possibility. Graphics alternate between impressive and ugly, but maintain a character of their own throughout.

    I really can't imagine why people were complaining that the game was too short. Unless I'm now halfway through or something?! Not going off on a tangent, exploring, collecting, experimenting, sneaking... surely defeats the object?

    A lovely surprise, this game. My 360 was borked and only just repaired; I have Halo 4, CODBLOPS2, Far Cry 3 and Dishonoured on the unplayed stack. And the other three aren't even getting a look in. Halo 4 and Call of Duty can do one, but Far Cry is one of my favourite series of all time and I haven't even put the disc in the tray yet.

    Hats off to the boys and girls at Arkane thus far. Hope it doesn't lose its way later on.

    Like you I started this weekend and im perhaps 4 hours into the first mission and have so far totally cleaned house. If the description holds true about actions having consequences then it should be like walking dead later :-)

    Im onto the proper meat of the mission, tooling around in the main building where they come in for drinks. I have failed it twice because I want to complete it in a particular way but I dont care. I havent found replaying it boring. It was 3 in the morning and I had to go to bed, stupid work.

    So far ive upgraded my rat power to max as I love sitting on awnings and having my pets clean up. Its so much fun to send people on their way ... painfully.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to a more bloodthirsty playthrough for sure. I just love being a sneaky sneaky bastard. My Grandmother on my Mother's side was one eighth ninja, or so it is rumoured.

    Very minor first mission spoiler: I actually sat out on the window ledge while they were having drinks, having smashed the glasses, then followed them to a cellar and did the wicked deed with nobody any the wiser.

    There was an excellent moment where I threw an unconscious body over a railing and its leg got stuck and swung amusingly beneath the ledge. I felt very Batman in that moment. :)

    ... and finished (PC). Low chaos, didn't kill anyone directly and three or so people died indirectly I couldn't be arsed to replay the level for. Ghosted about half of the levels.

    Lovely stuff. Adored the style, story and setting and the game is technically very solid across the board. The gameplay is fun with a capital F.
    Having clocked in at almost 30 hrs I'm now entirely confident that "finish the game in 4 hrs" thing has been pulled out of medium-to-large mammal's arse. Unless focusing on rushing through as quickly as humanly possibly there's no way one can finish it in that timespan.

    I'm still a bit confused by having almost enough cash to outright buy the entire empire for myself by the end though.

    It sounds a though the games currency situation has been weighted towards those that may not rinse every level of gold to give them a fair crack at it and not feel under equipped.

    Those that do go looting seem to swimming in it scrooge mcduck style. Is there a way to see the amount of gold in level before the end tally screen?

    Finally finished the first level. According to the tally I got every rune, charm and 1800 coins. However, I was over 2000 coins short of the max possible. What the f...?

    I thought I'd checked every nook and glory hole but it appears not. Did anybody do better than 1800 coins?

    I posted about this earlier in the thread - I think it must count the cash on the bodies of guards, etc which I'm guessing you didn't kill? Basically, I got nowhere near the full amount on either playthrough, per level, but you'll still get more than enough!

    NOOOOOOOO

    Ballsed up my non-lethal run on mission 7 somehow. I must've left a body on the floor for the rats to feast upon, and maybe rewiring that arc pylon to kill enemies wasn't the greatest idea in retrospect. But I couldn't find any other way around :-(

    I've just got around to starting it this week, it was worth the wait. Loving it so far, going for low chaos this time (including non-lethal 'assassinations') but already looking forward to a more bloodthirsty second playthrough.

    Dunwall is fantastic, very distinctive and well realised. The art style and presentation reminds me of Bioshock. Seen it mentioned in the abandoned games thread recently, which is a shame. It's really immersed me and am having a lot of fun with it.

    Agree, I really enjoyed it. Went for a pretty stealthy approach, but as the game progressed I felt sufficiently angered by the behaviour of certain characters to temporarily become a ruthless, bloodthirsty, bastard. I thought the art direction was terrific, some of the backgrounds looked almost painterly in places.

    It's available in the Steam sale right now, well worth it. I'll definitely go for another play through in somewhat different style.

    And now. Time for X-COM :)

    Got this for my Christmas, enjoying it very much so far. I'm trying to be as stealthy as possible, and avoiding killing anyone. I think I killed someone during the "tutorial" section, but apart from that I've spared everyone so far...

    One thing though that is slightly spoiling my enjoyment - I'm finding that my eyes hurt after playing it, even for just a short while. I've tried fiddling with the brightness, both in-game and on my TV settings, to no avail. Anyone else had this problem...?

    Hello, this is my first post in this topic, and even my first post on Eurogamer. I am coming here in order to have some opinions about Dishonored.

    As you know, Dishonored already has received many awards, as well as very positive critics from the press. However, it is always interesting to have an idea of what the various players really thought of the game: did it fulfil their expectations? What are its main assets or flaws? How did they play for their first run?

    In order to share your opinions about this game, here is a public survey about Dishonored, made by GameStatistics:
    Survey on Dishonored

    This survey is designed for any kind of player who already has played Dishonored, PC or consoles. It has not been asked by developers / publishers of the game, and answering it should not take more than 10 minutes. It will be open until end of next week

    A few more information about GameStatistics:
    GameStatistics makes quick and simple surveys on videogames topics. Only French players have been interviewed up to now, but we would like from now to have the opinions of English-speaking players too. The various sentences of the questionnaire may not be totally appropriate / correctly written, but do no hesitate to make any comments or suggestion about this (so as we can improve this part for further surveys)

    In any cases, I will come back to you at the end of the survey to summary its main results.

    Thanks in advance for your participation.

    Goty for me although strangely didn't want to play again, traded it and never regretted.
    Weird as I kept several games like halo 4 and max Payne 3 which I didn't enjoy as much.
    I know you choose your own path etc but didn't feel the need to see it all again.

    @gamestatistics Couldn't you guys just read kmy opinions on this game in the "Games you've abandonded" thread and fill fill the survey out for me. Im quite pushed for time at the moment.

    Nahh, only joking. I filled your survey out. Only took me about 2 minutes. Dont know where your getting 10 mins from.

    @gamestatistics Thanks for that survey, I think it's a very interesting initiative.
    I honestly wish more developers/publishers actively took time to obtain feedback from their customers.

    Early impressions:

    The start of this game reminds me of Oblivion (dull, linear escape from prison through a sewer).

    The sword fighting is brilliant

    The enemy AI is a bit dim


    Looking forward to actually have some powers and a bit of freedom in the levels

    After getting it in the Steam Sale I just finished this after ~19 hours spent on it. Some thoughts after my stealth / nearly no killing run-though:
    - Excellent world and visual design
    - Nice gameplay (closest relative I can think of is Deus Ex, with the multiple approaches depending on the powers you've invested in) and good missions
    - Powers are almost too powerful (e.g. Dark Vision, Stop Time, Possess, ...). It's supposed to be balanced by their rune cost, but the normal exploratory collecting got me to have ~5 runes left over at the end after purchasing anything stealth relevant.
    - The "celebrity acquisition" (that's a line from the credits) didn't really improve the voices IMO, I rather got pulled out of the world. "Why is Cersei a maid / tutor?"
    - The ending was lacklustre (1 line from Emily + some static 3D environments according to some outcomes / side-missions). Not much in the way of explanations for the plague or resolution thereof.
    - Why on earth would you use a 20 years old video codec (Bink) and then use that to encode your scrolling credits? It seems no-one can code a scroller anymore... ;_;

    So, definitely enjoyable (especially at half price), but not close to GOTY for me.
