Dishonored

I'm meant to be playing a cold, calculating murderer -- a man who assassinated an empress and gave her innocent daughter to traitors. So why am I hiding atop a broken chandelier, a mess of tightly wound nerves and sweat? Beca...
Arkane Studios has -- for the time being, anyway -- wrapped up Dishonored, now that The Brigmore Witches DLC is out. The stealth-action title has done well enough to be considered a full franchise by publisher Bethesda and it...
All great things must end, and it has been a great run for Dishonored, which is set to conclude with Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches. This final DLC is meant to wrap up Daud's story, as he confronts Delilah Cooperspoon...
Skyrim mods are the best, like the one we just featured that brings in Dishonored powers into Skyrim. This one, though, takes the cake. Falskaar is a new mod and it features nearly 25 hours of new content. That's new charact...
Today's Destructoid Show is brought to you by vacation! Which I am going on, tomorrow. Because I feel like it. The News: Avalanche Studios' Mad Max will probably be cool, but I'm unimpressed, Dishonored's final DLC...
The Skyrim modding community continues to impress; this time it's a new mod entitled The Gift of the Outsider which has brought the powers wielded by Dishonored's protaganist Corvo into Skyrim. Blink, Devouring Swarm, Wind B...
Bethesda has lifted the curtain on the next and final DLC for Arkane Studios' Dishonored. Picking up right where The Knife of Dunwall left off, The Brigmore Witches is heading to PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on August 13 i...
Bethesda has teased more upcoming Dishonored content with a pair of mysterious images posted on its blog, with the promise of more to come. In the previous DLC, The Knife of Dunwall, the assassin Daud encountered a witch name...
In another unusually good sale for Xbox Live, Arkane Studios' Dishonored is down to a mere $19.99 for Gold members now through Monday, July 15. It's as good of time as any to attempt that non-lethal run you've always dreamed ...
Pre-order bonuses aren't going anywhere, it seems. And if that truly is the case, the least a developer can do is make retailer-exclusive rewards available after the fact. I'll never buy this stuff, but someone else presumabl...
Crouching on the rooftop of a dilapidated building in the whale oil-fuelled Victorian dystopia of Dunwall, I felt like I had never left. I'd cleared the name of Corvo Attano, saved a child who would become an Empres...
This week, Jimquisition gives you a brief lesson in pasta sauce, and ties it into the misguided quest for perfection currently plaguing the so-called "AAA" title scene. Expanding on a few ideas found in last week's...
Dishonored is the game with the racists people in the sky? Or is it the one with the head crabs? I've been playing Black Mesa and BioShock Infinite recently, so Dishonored feels like a distant memory, despite it being my per...
After a couple of lackluster weeks of new releases, we're spoiled for choice this week. A plethora of games drop, begging for your attention. Time to blow more money. At the top of the list, for me, is the latest piece of Di...
The game industry tells us many things in order to justify its various activities. Multiplayer is added to so many games because solo experiences are dying. Online passes are needed because used games are killing creativity. ...
Dishonored's combination of magic and weaponry made for a perfect mixture of making you feel like a total overpowered badass. Stringing together kills all while teleporting around levels like your Nightcrawler from the opening of X-Men 2 can be thrilling, but you probably want to make sure you're not about to kill anyone important while on your spree.
Dishonored co-directors Raf Colantonio and Harvey Smith are serious guys who make serious games, but in the above video we see a different side of them. The three minute long, heavily edited walkthrough plays like an E3 walk...
Game of the Year, Innovation Award, Best Audio, Best Game Design, Best Visual Arts, Best Downloadable Game. That’s 6 out of 11 total awards, and the game was ineligible for two of them (and I’m still not sure why ...
Arkane Studios’ Sebastien Mitton gave a talk at GDC in which he revealed the warmly received Dishonored was originally set to take place in medieval Japan. Mitton continued, “We thought medieval Japan was not goo...
With so many online multiplayer games such as Halo and Call of Duty becoming successful franchises, console online gaming really took off this generation. In doing so, the demise of single-player games has become a hot topic ...
A lot of scrutiny has been directed toward the newly announced, next generation Thief game. In fact, enough people in the official Thief forum have been concerned about a detective mode-esque "Focus" ability that Eidos Montre...
Hey gang! I'm back from wherever I was, and I've brought with me today's Destructoid Show! Big news today with the first trailer for Saints Row IV, which looks as nutty as you'd expect it to. That'll be shown off at PAX East ...
Bethesda now has an official shop where you can buy a good-sized and varied selection of merchandise related to Skyrim, Dishonored, Fallout, Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Everything from t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, figurines, lithographs, and messenger bags.  Personally, I would love to wear a Winking Skeever shirt with a pair of Vault 101 sneakers. That's the pinnacle of fashion my friends.
Bethesda has today announced the second bag of add-on content for Dishonored, titled The Knife of Dunwall, is slated for a worldwide April 16 release date. It'll be available for systems across the board, enjoying release on ...
Looks like the folks at thatgamecompany might need a new trophy cabinet after Journey picked up five BAFTA Game Awards last night at the ceremony in London. The PlayStation Network title won awards for Artistic Achievement, A...
The week's Xbox Live Arcade sale continues on, with 50% off Dishonored, Borderlands 2, and many more games. You may be able to find these titles cheaper at retail, but if you must play these games now -- and you really shou...
This year's Game Developer's Conference, which takes place in late March in San Francisco, keeps filling up with more interesting talks and sessions. New ones announced this week are all interesting enough that I'm already tr...
The very first Jimquisition Awards are here! Five days, five games, five awards! We kick off with one of the most compelling new retail IPs released this year, a classic in the making from Arkane Studios and Bethesda. Yep, it could only be Dishonored!
Dishonored is one of those games that's mesmerizing to watch someone play well, and this trailer for the impending Dunwall City Trials add-on is no different. Releasing across all platforms on December 11, the downloadable c...
Bethesda has told Destructoid that Dishonored, the critically acclaimed stealth-action title released last month, is performing above sales expectations, and the publisher is definitely pleased. While it declined to reveal ac...
Bethesda has announced that Dishonored will be getting its first downloadable content offering on December 11. Dunwall City Trials is a series of ten challenge maps designed to test you on stealth, combat, and agility.  ...
More content will be coming for Dishonored, according to Bethesda. They've confirmed plans for three expansion products, the first arriving in December. "Dunwall City Trials" will include ten challenges for players to attempt...
Some people have specific tastes when it comes to their field of view in games. Being able to customize this setting from within a menu is always appreciated, but it's still not something I would expect to see in every major ...
If there's one thing my Twitter feed has been telling me this week, it's that gamers are desperately choosing between XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored, two good looking games that, in their own ways, stand out among the gen...
Oh man, what a big week for gaming. Like, because they're putting out a bunch of games and stuff.  In addition to reviews of Dishonored and XCOM: Enemy Unknown going up today, we've also got word that Rayman Legends has been delayed until Q1 2013, cyberhackers have discovered Resident Evil 6's kinda-sorta on-disc DLC, and spaceship bridge-simulator Artemis is coming to iOS. 
The Austin-based Arkane Studios will be celebrating the launch of their latest, Dishonored, tonight at the Gamestop store in the Arboretum at Great Hills, and you're invited. Starting at 10:00 pm, co-creative directors Harvey...
It seems that once or twice a year we get some new intellectual property demolishing the idea that only sequels perform well, shaking up the market in some exciting way. Despite having no big franchise name attached, it catch...
Bethesda and Arkane Studios have released the second part of their series of shorts, Tales from Dunwall, fleshing out the intriguing setting of Dishonored. Where the first short, "The Awakening", revealed the origins of an&n...
I have to admit, I have intentionally avoided information on Dishonored as much as possible so that I can go in blind. That all ends today with this video that wraps up the Dishonored four part developer documentar...
With Dishonored almost upon us, Arkane Studios have a third developer diary out which will no doubt cause you to salivate to such a degree that you drown, and are unable to play. How cruel. This one is all about choice, cons...
