I am thinking of buying this game, I've only got a PC, so is keyboard+mouse working 100%, or should I buy an Xbox controller?

If the game looks and performs well, does it really matter?

I would argue that it plays better on keyboard+mouse, your powers seem to be (for the most part) aim-based....like blink it gives you a circle of light showing you where you will blink to and you aim that using the mouse (on a console by using the same joystick that you look around with). That specific power is 10x better when you can use it rapidly. I have been abusing it to escape enemies when I am detected, and without lots of time playing consoles I know I couldn't use it nearly as easily as I do with a mouse.

I suppose if you suck with keyboard+mouse but are good with controllers, then a controller is the way to go, but as a PC gamer (mostly), keyboard+mouse feels a lot better, at least for some specific actions, in this game.

This game works perfectly with kb and mouse, definitely no need for a controller.

Funny, I was thinking of it the other way around.

I used to game with a keyboard and mouse for years, but recently got a controller. Couldn't get used to it at first. The mouse started giving me carpal tunnel so I switched to a controller by necessity. Now it's much easier playing with a controller for me. Go figure.

Yes.

"I feel like PC game players out there are like the Rodney Dangerfield of the industry. They're not getting any respect. What you get is a port of a 360 or PS3 game that's running on, now seven-year-old technology. A top-end gaming PC these days is about 10 times more powerful."

What does that have to do with "Dishonored"?

This is probably Bethesda's smoothest launch. No issues.

Forced AA with nvinspector as well. MSAA 4X + 4X SGSSAA.

Assuming you're playing it on PC, exactly what it says. I'd rather have a PC game than a port.

(Note that I was also answering a question put forth in the thread which I quoted, so did you really need to ask?)

Even if mouse and keyboard is poorly implemented it's still better than using a controller. That said, Dishonored plays great on mouse and keyboard.

I really like the art direction of the game, as although it has similarities to games like Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands 2 it does things in its own style. It's a really compelling universe and I really hope the game sells well, as not only does it deserve to but I'd love to see a sequel. Here are a few screenshots I took earlier:

For anyone on the fence about this game: it's worth it!

Finished the first assassination last night without killing anyone. It's not a bad. Unfortunately I don't think I will play it any further. Xcom comes out today, and im still not done with guild wars 2 or dark souls. Maybe next year when there aren't so many bangers to try finish I will feel like playing again, but for now I'm jut not feeling the urge to continue with this one.

This literally looks like a screenshot from Team Fortress 2, specifically 2Fort or some similar style map lol it's actually uncanny to me how 2Fortish it looks (to me).

And yes, I really hope it sells well. Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (probably sold ok, don't know though) was a pretty underrated gem of a game imo and Arkane certainly knows how to make compelling worlds and all that. I'd love to see a Dishonored 2 or something else set in that world.

I'm still on the fence about this....

I loved Theif games growing up, be recently after playing the new Deus Ex... I just couldn't get into it as much as I wanted.

Not only do I fear I wont get into this, I am still very much into Borderlands 2..... Maybe I'll just wait longer, though I want to play it lol.

Just like in the guild wars 2 thread, your hang up is constantly directx... It must suck not being able to play tons of great games on PC, because of a silly reason.

who said I wasn't able to play them? I just don't buy them right away. They're not worth as much as properly developed games.

I don't have Borderlands 2 yet either, but I plan to someday.

Directx 9 doesn't mean its not "properly developed" Both borderlands 2 and dishonored have excellent pc versions so I'm not quite sure what the point you are trying to make is.

Obviously we have different views on the subject. At any rate, I think I've said all there is to say aside from pages of 'no it isn't yes it is' blah blah blah so I'm off.

So there we were, me and my friend, getting XCOM: Enemy Unknown for him, adn just as we were about to leave the store, the shipment arrived.

:woot:

Installed it, and played for about 3 or 4 minutes. Had to do some study. :(

Looks like its going to be a long night.

Borderlands 2 should keep you occupied for ages. By the time you're ready to get dishonored you'll probably be able to get it cheaper. lol :p

That's what I'm thinking. But I got that problem of money burning holes in my pockets :p

If I can just hold out for another week for the new BL2 DLC, I should be fine.

I'm just a sucker for new games lol

Yeah. If I didn't know it used the Unreal Engine I would have sworn it was made using Source, from the graphics to the way you hold items in front of you.

It can look quite cartoony at times but I think it works really well:
