    Have they mentioned DLC or expansions or any of that stuff? Sadly I'm wrapped up in GW2/TL2, with Borderlands 2 on my radar, so Dishonored is going to have to wait. If they plan on releasing DLC then that makes the decision to wait all the easier.

    The fact that gaming journalists are giving Dishonored great scores is a good indication of its objective quality because gaming journalists have proven themselves to be entirely reliable in the past.

    It's a good thing nobody here's claiming that they're entirely reliable or you'd be veering close to a point.

    The strike rate for Wot I Think features is near perfect, I think the journalists are right this time.

    Looks to be the spirtual successor of Looking glass games we were all hoping for very excited to try this out.

    See, hopefully this is what i expected all FPS games to turn into after SS2 / Deus Ex.

    Actually, is it weird that i'm kind of surprised that it's getting great scores? I half expected modern reviewers to be unimpressed by that type of gameplay.

    The "reviewers" are salivating over it but all the videos I've seen, including the 40 min giantbomb one have seemed like crap to me. Bad graphics, bad AI, bad UI, too many super powers, poor animation, zero difficulty, etc.

    It's like Bioshock all over again.

    Haha true dat, though usually the scores are influenced by how much power a developer has and how badly a mag/site will need those future previews. All Arkane Studios have made is Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah. Great games, but hardly the sort of stuff to gain the attention of mainstream mag/sites.

    It might be because old-school games were designed to be fun to play, but new school games seem to be designed to be fun to watch.

    Hyped games get crap reviews too! I do think some games get rated higher than they should, but definitely not, "burn them aat the stake, the reviewers are in the publishers pockets!"

    Not surprised at all when you see who worked on a game :D

    Indeed. The man is a broken pencil.

    I was quite heartened by Adams WiT tbh and look forward to playing Dishonored, however I suspect that XCom will likely hold my attention for most of the weekend.

    I liked Bioshock. At least until the plot twist, after which the game degraded rather quickly and culminated with the worst escort quest in recent memory.

    And then there are games like Dark Souls which are fun to play AND watch :)
