Yeah but Wow is a top down game with little reliance on collision mapping and even then it does a fucking terrible job of it as anyone who ever fell through clipping and wiped an entire raid can tell you.

Compare that to a blink spell in that game that is set from a first person perspective where doors, walls etc have environments behind them that you can warp to allowing you to circumvent traps or blockages. Hopefully it means that all buildings in the game will have interiors that you can blink through compared to most games where most of the real estate is simply decoration.

It's streets ahead of WoW and the only things the blink spell from WoW and the Blink spell from Dishonoured having in common is the name and general concept of the ability both of which are ripped from D&D's blink spell.

Surely you can see the difference between what is essentially a 2 dimensional game (with a few pockets of 3D areas) and a full 3D game where all (or at least more) of the real estate is used. If they have actually made all the buildings explorable instead of the typical only important buildings have interiors it's a massive step forwards in game design.

Whether or not it's just hype is a different story however.

Ill make a note to avoid making facetious wow references around D&D fans ever again. Seriously though, if blinking through obstacles and mind controlling NPCs for funtimes are next level game mechanics in 2012 then I weep for the children. WEEP!

I'm not convinced that making all buildings explorable necessarily makes for a fun game or a huge step forward in gameplay either.

Still, waiting with interest to check this out.

How fucking cool is that "blinking" move? Reminds me of Nightcrawler only more bad arse and less pussy.

New trailer, with the devs, focussing on the design.

With every new scene I see my pants swell that little bit more.

But I've still got my head hanging out of a window on the Hype choo choo. Like a little puppy, excited on its first outing.

Yeah sames.

I manage to avoid thinking about it for a few weeks, then get reminded and have to watch every trailer again.

I hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment.

For the spergers out there, the list of cheevos.

It's looking like a couple of run throughs will in order (time permitting )...the first one upgrading powers and killing some people, the second upgrading only blink and killing nobody.

Sick.

So last night I saw that Bethesda have done a tie-in iOS game for Dishonored called...wait for it...Rat Assassin. It's bad. SO bad. Like a Chinese hack job Fruit Ninja clone with...yep...rats. Worth downloading for LOLs but nothing else. What a wasted opportunity. It's not as if the GAME OF THE YEAR 2012 needs more hype.

except for the bits when you decide not to use stealth, which can be the whole game.

That looks shit and boring ian. I can't imagine spending hours trying to set off massive chain reactions of death with hilarious results and forgetting to actually push the storyline forward at all.

They totally should have gotten Tom Clancy or Jarradscott to design the game.

Reminds me of when Sam shape-shifted into a bug, flew into the Lilith follower's mouth, and then transformed back into a man. Gibs everywhere.
