Dishonored 2 review – Blink and you miss it

It doesn’t bother me… I swear! I’ve aged, I’ve grown, I’ve matured. I am both wiser and more benevolent for my years, more accepting of the way others do things even if I’d have done it differently. Except none of this is true, and GODAMMIT BETHESDA, how hard would it have been to release a version of the game with the PROPER GODAMN SPELLING OF “DISHONOURED”?! Okay… Seriously now. Serious game review. Yes.

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea DLC review – Constants and variables

The following article contains some spoilers for the end of Bioshock Infinite. Bioshock Infinite was unquestionably one of my favourite games of 2013 and remains every bit as excellent. It ought to be a mark of its excellence that I actually played the game through twice despite its linear path and story, simply because I enjoyed playing it so much. Indeed it was only in the past few weeks that I completed my second playthrough on 1999 mode (and got all those collectible achievements along the way, I might add) and decided that I just had not yet had quite my fill of Bioshock. This prompted me to buy the season pass for the game and work through the various DLCs on offer.

Dishonored Review – You bring great honour to this famiry!

I will admit to viewing the announcement of Dishonored earlier this year with some mixed feelings. Initially I saw that they had used the American, and thus INCORRECT, version of spelling Dishonoured in the title and so was a little bit dubious about the game. Then I realised that it was being published by Bethesda and I watched the absolutely awesome cinematic trailer and proceeded to start throwing money at my computer screen. The game was also developed by Arkane Studios who I remembered from playing Bioshock 2, so I figured that the game had the right companies behind it. Dishonored is a first-person, stealth-based, assassination game with you taking on the role of Corvo Attano the silent and masked protagonist. Corvo is the personal bodyguard of the Empress and her daughter but when you return to her (at the start of the game) she is almost immediately assassinated and her daughter, Emily, is kidnapped. Corvo is then framed for the murder while the real man behind it, the Spymaster, seizes power. The rest of the game then revolves around your attempts to restore Emily to the throne, defeat the new “Lord Regent” and eliminate the corruption and tyranny from the high and mighty of the city of Dunwall, where the game is set.
