There were quite a few stellar games last year, which really stood out. We discussed many at length on For The Lore. Basically, despite the massive disappointments of the year (I’m looking at both of you, Diablo III and Mass Effect 3), there were so many titles which were truly inspiring.
One of the best of last year was Dishonored, developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda. The game borrows heavily from similar tales, however it presents its take on it in a clever new fashion. It’s incredibly polished, tight and just plain fun to play.
If you haven’t played it yet, know that Vince and I don’t hold back on the spoilers. We strongly encourage everyone to check out this game. It is well worth the money and time investment.
I believe a best way to validate that statement is to say, as Vince explained during the vidcast, that this game still haunts us. A simple song, overheard in passing, is enough to yank us back into Dunwall.
It was fun discussing this game with Vince, as we don’t always play the same or make the same choices. We each had some different experiences in the game, especially Vince as he played through both the low and high chaos routes. I stuck to the ultra-high chaos gameplay… which equated to kill all the (bad) things.
Unfortunately, Joe was not able to join us for this episode, but he will be around for the next.
