This Live Action Teaser Makes Me Want a Dishonored Movie

Bethesda has released a new Dishonored 2 live-action trailer. As you may remember from Bethesda’s previous live action teasers (there were people-populated trailers for Fallout 4 and Doom, too) the video won’t show you very much in terms of what the graphics might look like, but it does an excellent job of summarising the feel of the game, including first-person perspectives of both Emily and Corvo’s unique abilities. The trailer also confirms pre-orders of Dishonored 2 will not only come with a free digital copy of Dishonored: Definitive Edition (which is fecking incredible, by the way), but also unlock the game...

Review: Virginia

Title: Virginia Platform: PS4 (Reviewed) /PC Developer: Variable State Publisher: 505 Games Release date: Out Now tl;dr: Good… but my god, it could’ve been great Price: £7 Family Focus: Click here for more information. Setting the controller down as the credits roll on Virginia, I don’t really know how I feel. The story I’ve just watched is a gripping one, one that had me by the knackers until those credits rolled. But now it’s over – now the final scene is done, for the third time – I’m left with nothing but an aching sense of unfulfillment. We play as Anne Tarver, a rookie FBI agent ostensibly...

Chaos Theory: Dishonored 2 Preview

I set off with the best of intentions. A steady, sure assault, a brutal but brief foray to explore the surroundings, uncover the secrets, neutralise the target – non-lethally, naturally – and withdraw as silently as I arrived. In truth, however, it’s never like this. Corvo may be a deadly assassin, but in my stewardship, he’s typically more a fight-than-flight kind of guy (usually because I fell off a beam, or missed a headshot, or mistimed a spell) and we usually make our excuses and leave in a hail of bullets and blood and curse words muttered through gritted...
