*Dishonored* game demo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmOogPD2ROI

And this blurb is taken from Digital Nightfall on TTLG, he is working on the game too, which is rather cool.


I think it's OK to clarify something about those videos, which many of you have already figured out, since it's clarified elsewhere. The character build he's playing with is a maxed-out cheat for the demo. In a real playthrough if you examine every square inch of the game and find every rune, every upgrade, every coin, you might have 3/4ths of it by the final map. During this level in the real game, you're just going to have a tiny portion of it.

The point though is that the player could potentially have any aspect of this build during this level.


This game is so full of potential, its not funny. Even though the player was maxed out for the demo, seems a bit over powered IMO. Still, looks damn good. And our own Harvey, who had a heavy hand in Thief back in the day. Nice to see him again.

So many people are looking forward to this game. Most anticipated of the year to me. The buzz around it is amazing. A game with guts and honor, I mean Dishonor. There is a few more videos to watch, the official trailer has all the bells and whistle. Love the Steam Punk atmosphere.

That right there had me interested in just that aspect alone. Music, ambient's can add so much to a game, and sadly so many have over looked that.

Think it was Indus who showed me the trailer, and certainly looks interesting - thief meets bioshock with a smidgeon of half life 2 thrown in for good measure was my take on it.

Also good to see DigitalNightfall working on it, the level of detail (without killing the system off) that he manages in his work is pretty phenomenal (his NightBlade map on his site is also fantastic).

Every person in this forum, should play that game. So many are looking forward to it. Should be interesting anyway. Also, a side note, TTLG is going through some major changes, a revamp of the forum, still a work in progress. We merged some older forums, archived some others, the front page is next. New people helping out, myself included. Less shenanigans over there.

Where was this redirect. What did he did before removal? And how things work after Revamp?

vBulletin allows a parent forum to be placed that doesn't actually exist, just redirects to a different URL (in other words: here). Given that the Thievery forum used to be hosted on TTLG, it became a redirect years ago and was recently removed totally in their cleanup efforts.

WTaFa, there is absolutely no way of knowing how many used it, its been archived, its gone. They kept it up for years, and years. Time has come to take it down and move on.

Such stats could be count from two sides of visitor traffic tunnel. Ofc I understand that from TTLG side it's useless to wait for such information. But I'm just curious why community team wasn't interested in counting that could be done from Thievery side at all. Like
We have 400th visitor from our father, TTLG old forum! Godspeed Thievery!!
or
We have 300th member! Hooray!!

God damnit, this is about Dishonored WTaFa, keggie is right, I was about to say it anyway. That issue is a dead topic, no one knows how many were redirected, and no one is GOING TO LOOK IT UP EITHER. STAY ON TOPIC. TTLG is in the past fucking let it go or else.

Here is more goodness about the game. http://e3.gamespot.com/video/6380963...012-stage-demo

18 minutes long, and LOTS of game play. Some one TTLG mentioned they'd like to see being a rat with full blown rat animation, I'd agree with that. You can possess a fish, how about with a fish eye view! Yeah......

There was a decent article on Dishonored in PC Power Play, sounds pretty interesting. I really appreciate a game that allows you to win without killing anyone.

Oh totally agree, its nice to see some core elements, that made Thief so popular. The player gets to choose. Smart games are slowly making a come back.

Oh I know, it looks totally easy. But as Dan said, (Digital Nightfall) The game was maxed out to show what it could do. I wouldn't use it all the time either, of course I say that now. So many choices, it will be great, I hope so anyway.

Some of you may not realize this, but, Dan is a level designer for the game. How cool is that. He went to France to work on the game.

Not a damn thing, lol. Frankly I could care less, I'm on the fence about it. Haven't heard anything in years, and I just don't follow it. News will be released eventually, then we'll all know. They mucked up T3 enough, I'm leery of T4.

Well, Deus Ex Human Revolution turned out alright, there is hope! I can't judge on something I know nothing about, and I really wish they'd throw us a bone and give us something for god sake. No news is good news, in this case, is it?

Im not holding my breath for it.
Sorry, but I have all reasons in the world to suspect someone who has Ultima 8 and Thief 3 in their CV. 2 follow ups to great games that were released buggy and imcomplete and yet you could see there was a ton of untapped potential in the technology.
I do hope for the people looking foward to it that this is the game where they have learned all their mistakes.
