    Both come out tomorrow. Will probably wait a bit on XCOM, but Dishonored looks like a must play.

    Anyone else picking these up?

    want to get dishonored but the length of the story scares me.

    I have gamefly, so when I buy a game I do it because I know I'll be playing it for many, many hours. When I read a review that basically says "I beat this in 6 hours", I get apprehensive.

    Both pre-ordered. Destructoid gave both 9's. Most excited about X-Com though.

    Yeah if you rush through the story it can be completed in under 8 hours. :dislike:

    bethesda has been guilty of doing that. Minus Fallout and Elder Scrolls.

    I think I beat Rage in about 5 hours and I was not rushing at all.

    Also bought both today and am very earlier in Dishonored and not that impressed. It may get good, but the first 30 minutes are pretty meh.

    Anyone play XCOM yet? I have not popped it in. I actually downloaded the Walking Dead game and am enjoying it.

    Played through the first mission of Dishonored. Loving it so far. My first run is going to be a no alert, no kills game. I'll wreak havoc my second playthrough.

    Feels bad man. I was just thinking about needing a new game too.

    Might have to be X-Com.

    I've been playing the shit out of X-Com and I love it. Will piss you off when your guy has a 99% hit chance and misses though.

    Do one run each. I decided to kill first since that route is easier and in the beginning I had no idea what I was doing.

    Tried the stealth...but I'm not great t stealth. So it'll be a hybrid run. Stealth when I can but going all ninja gaiden when I fuck up.

    I was the same way to begin with. No matter which route you go you have to stealth a fair amount. You have to ambush people to kill them you can't really fight groups without using a bunch of consumables or having a lot of ammo.

    finally finished the first mission once youre out of the sewers, sneaking is cool but I'd love to be able to actually fight more than 2 guys and survive. need to get me some runes

    Highly recommend getting upgraded blink and the one that turns guys to ash when you kill them from behind. That makes it easier to kill without getting caught if you are doing a violent run through.

    Dishonored was such a fun game

    loved trying to play stealthy so I could give Emily a better world at the end

    remastered edition is good. I never played 2 so I might KOP that
