Designer conflicted over Dishonored sequel

Postby StonecoldMC » 12 Oct 2012, 16:53

If no one buys it, he can get away with saying its a one off.

If enough people buy it, he can say there making the sequel to help with demand from fans of the Game.

Ill be playing this over the weekend and hope its as good as everyone says, hope that lots of people have bought it and hope that we do get a sequel. All things permitting.

I will respectfully disagree with you there. I want Dishonoured to do banging business, not so that we get a sequel, but so that publishers will take more of a punt on new IP. If Arkane have another original idea up their sleeves then let's see it. I do, however, understand your sentiment.

I put Dishonored on for a couple of hours today and spent that time exploring The Hounds Pit's pub, the surrounding area and buildings, talked to everyone, read all the books I found, went for a swim in the river and took in the ambience of the seaside.

Bottom line: If you finish this game in four hours then and I know it sounds arrogant, but you're playing it wrong.

Has someone completed it in 4 hours? What a waste of a good game! I have spent hours finding bone charms and runes in the first few levels! As you say, if this is the case they are playing it wrong!

I haven't played it, but is there a speed run trophy/achievement that would encourage trying to complete it in under four hours then?

The four hours thing was a rumour before it came out, I've not heard of anyone managing to actually finish it in that time. Anyway, as many people have pointed out before, it's possible to 'complete' Skyrim in less than three hours. Personally, I don't really see the point of skipping the story/side quests on a first play through.

Doesn't need a sequel. But if it does well enough we'll probably get one and like Bioshock 2, another unnecessary sequel, it will be decidedly average.

@Gaga

Haven't looked at the achievements yet, apparently there's some super hard ones like finishing the game on hardest difficulty without killing, without setting alarms off and without been spotted.

I dunno if anyone has actually finished it in 4 hours, could understand it for a speed run after a proper playthrough but it'd be a waste to ignore so much of what makes this game so good

I really enjoyed Bioshock 2, it's not as good as the first but still better than most other shooters out there.

I wouldn't mind a more spiritual successor/sequal sort of game rather than straight up sequal. they've got the gameplay right and art right, but the world to me is a bit depressing to jump into again and again.
