    Yeah, how many times have we heard that claim before? You remember the original AI plans for Oblivion? Radiant AI?


    Yeah. I'm not holding my fucking breath on that promise.
    Um dishonored isn't made by Bethesda Game Studios, they are simply being published by Bethesda Softworks

    The developer of Dishonored is Arkane

    Wow, it's okay for a game to be slightly similar to other games, but they literally mashed Bioshock and Assassins Creed together.
    The only similarities I can think of with Bioshock is that you have powers that you cast with your hand (which bioshock didn't invent) and Assassins Creed in that you assassinate people (which assassin's creed didn't invent).


    If anything this game seems to have more similarities to Hitman.

    Not really

    and even if they did, so what?
    I don't like playing the same games over and over.

    Not just that, Bioshock 2's character had a symbol on his hand too.

    ...and Assassins Creed in that you assassinate people (which assassin's creed didn't invent).
    It's the art style and parkour elements that are similar.

    I was going to mention that it could be Dishonoured yesterday, as it seems to have slipped everyones minds that it existed. But for some reason left the thread before posting

    Oh well. Dishonoured actually looks really cool. I've been following it as much as I can, and the art direction looks amazing, we still need to see a lot more gameplay before I judge it, but it looks pretty solid. And the story, while it isn't anything truly special from what we know, sounds pretty interesting too.

    Remember, Bethesda is two entities, Bethesda Softworks (the publisher) and Bethesda Game Studios (the developer), this is only being published by Bethesda, and developed by Arkane, so keep all your pessimism about "Bethesda" games out of it, because it won't apply unless they suddenly cut the deadline stupidly short.

    Edited:
    Just realised i got the Bethesdas the wrong way around.

    It looks like it'll reuse skyrim stuff. They'll probably use the same engine as they always bloody do, but instead of shouts you use the hand mark.
    A few things;

    It's not Bethesda making it, it's Arkane Studios. They're using a "custom" version of the Unreal Engine.

    I'd also like to ask, where / what you saw that made you think they'll be re-using Skyrim stuff?


    It appears that people still get "Publisher" and "Developer" mixed up a lot.

    I just don't understand how the picture is connected to the game Dishonored. The image's art style is some really nice CG face that looks very realistic, however, Dishonored has a psuedo-cartoony artsyle very similar to Borderlands mixed with something out of Tim Burton. The art style of the gameplay footage looks totally different from that, and I don't understand why they look so different.

    Not really. It's quite hard to place the artstyle, as in certain lighting it looks kind of cel-shaded, but in other lighting it's got a lot of details. Though that is the CG trailer which won't be accurate of the final graphics.

    Level design in Dishonored is made by the same Russian guy who designed City 17 in Half-Life 2.
    His name is Viktor Antonov and he's Bulgarian, not Russian.

    I could've gone for FO4 or some Skyrim DLC but this looks pretty kickass so I'm only slightly disappointed, yet excited at the same time.

    Yes because after they made 1 single game on a brand new engine they directly need to pour lots of hours and money into a new one.

    Also how the flying fuck can you compare this game with Skyrim?
    I don't see any dragons flying around or seeing someone going on a grand adventure through the lands of whatever

    Assassin's Creed invented parkour. Bioshock invented steampunk (or w/e).

    I don't like playing the same games over and over.
    So if it was Bioshock and AC mashed together, where did you play a game like that?

    Not just that, Bioshock 2's character had a symbol on his hand too.
    Bioshock invented characters with symbols on their hands

    It's the art style
    Assassin's Creed invented old buildings

    Parts of the aesthetic like the vehicles borrow a little too much from half life 2 for my liking but it still looks good.

    Its always nice to see a new IP.

    Oh, didn't know they hadn't officially revealed this. I know one of the developers, they've been putting pictures and video on the Internet for a while now, so I'm surprised it's just now becoming a big deal.

    Wow, the world's inspired by Viktor Antonov, thought it looked kind of HL2ish with the awesome angular carriages looking like APCs and the artystyle in general. I'm definitely considering this, Bethesda haven't really let me down, and I've bought most of their games since Morrowind.

    Even if it was bioshock + asscreed it would be fucking awesome. They're both great games and a mix of these two sounds awesome to me. In my books it's ok to copy/rip off as long as it's as good as the original, if not better.

    Combinations are a way to go really

    combine the good aspects of one game, as well as another, but also make something purely new out of it

    How do you know this? have you got some kind of magical time travel device? Or is this just because Bethesda are involved? Because if it's the latter, they aren't developing the game, so you'd be wrong.

    Bethesda have been working on Dishonored for quite some time and have released snippets of information about it. What lead you to think that they would just toss that aside and start working on Fallout4 while their other game is still being teased?

    Slowing down time is old as hell. Skyrim far from invented it, nor did it make it popular. As for dashes, that has been around for ages too.

    It's the art style and parkour elements that are similar.
    Artstyle is not similar, and Ganondorf had the triforce on his hand in OoT too, obviously Bioshock 2 copied it.
