E3 Pick of the Day: Dishonored

Dishonored is a game that I've posted about on this site in the past, mostly because I'm extremely excited for its release. From what I've seen, it appears to combine all of my favourite aspects of Deus Ex: Human Revolution like the wide range of powers and variation in playstyles with a fantastic looking steam punk world. Unfortunately, no matter how much money I threw at the screen during the Dishonored portion of the Gamespot Live Show, I never recieved a copy of the game. The new gameplay demos showcase two different ways to achieve your objectives - stealth and savagery. Both look like they'll be a ton of fun to play and the wide range of different possible playstyles that this video hints at as well as the power variety and slight randomization of mission objectives should provide a huge amount of replayability. I couldn't be more excited to pick up this game once it comes out in October and see if it lives up to my expectations.

Honourable Mentions: Borderlands 2, Crysis 3, Dawnguard

Dishonored Gameplay Revealed

Bethesda has finally released a gameplay trailer for their latest offering - Dishonored. It looks like they might have another hit on their hands with the dark atmosphere and crazy powers similar to the Bioshock series with a bit of a Half-life 2 vibe to it in the story and enemy design. For those who haven't been following Dishonored, you play the part of the Empress' bodyguard, framed for her murder and placed in jail. A shadowy group frees you, giving you supernatural abilities and unleashing you on the corrupt, technilogically superior government in order to bring them down and clear your name. I'm very excited to see what the final product will be, but so far this game is looking amazing.
