Yeah, which is what I think is really cool about it! To me it’s a lot the same as stage magic tricks—it’s “fake,” but it points to some really cool things people are capable of and how our brains work, which to me is way more exciting than “ghosts” or anything like that. This kind of thing always reminds me how…
True facts I was waaay too much of a wuss to try any of these things as a kid, and also still have to resist the urge to say “Bloody Mary” in mirrors when I use the bathroom late at night.
This is called Chevreul’s Pendulum and it works the same way and is super enat!

There’s one when you beat it, actually!
Fair. I think the clunkiness of the AI works in the game’s favor, though—it makes them creepy as hell, because they seem so robotic and it’s hard to suss their motivations. I think with any game AI, there’s a balance to strike between seeming ‘real’ or ‘human’ and being too powerful or not fun to play against. So in…
The website says October!
I could *not* figure out those two contracts for the life of me. At some point I just tried to carry Alberto out of the bar, thinking “Well, heck, it’s kind of a wild bar, maybe they’ll just think he’s drunk.” For some reason no one aggroed—in retrospect it’s somehow possible I walked around the room in such a way no…
I’m not going to spoil it for you lol. I’ve actually disliked the Outsider since the cutscene with him before Lady Boyle’s party in Dishonored 1 where he’s all rude to you for going to a party. Like, make up your mind and stop complaining, buddy.
Typo! Fixed. Thanks!!
I didn’t try to open it before completing the game, so I actually don’t know when it unlocks, but I believe it replaces your powers with Domino, Blink, and Dark Vision.
I like Karnaca! I like how the game gets all occult-y too, and digging into the religion more.
That’s a good question! Story mode will teach you a lot of things you might struggle with in sandbox (especially the very beginning of story mode, which has a pretty useful tutorial), but there are also a ton of good guides and wikis out there if you just want a crash course in the basics. You can swap between them at…
Which officially launches NEXT WEEK and I am so pumped.
Same thing over and over. There does tend to be sort of a pattern to the early game once you get to it, but the random encounters and stuff you find always keep it interesting to me (I just really like this game!)
Yeah, I played it on the subway and it was fine!
It’s really good for solo, actually, and that’s mostly how I played The Secret World and one of the things I really liked about it. It was fun to group up with friends, but besides dungeons there were never any areas where I couldn’t progress without another person. Plus there are usually people around who’ll send a…
The outfits are behind currency, though if you had an old character you can transfer your clothes over. I am not 100% sure what happened to my faction uniform though...
THIS IS MY FINEST GAMING MOMENT
You and all my other MMO friends >.>
