I have not been playing it, but I did watch Dave Bagnall‘s Dishonored Let’s Play. It has something to do with what seems like a lack of peril. Xcom can go so very badly wrong sometimes that it really makes you feel something: Tense.
Perhaps the lack of emotional connection is due to watching a Let’s Play instead of playing the game… But usually watching Let’s Plays inspire me to want the game. Dishonored looks a little flat, emotionally.
Nope… It’s just me. Dishonored has far exceeded sales expectations. It’s headed into franchise territory.
