Apparently Corvo is still playable. Dishonored was one of the most pleasant surprises in gaming in recent years. Didn't know it did well enough to justify a sequel. Nice.

i hope they scale back how difficult it was to be "good" from the first game. you could seriously kill like 3 people in a level and it would cause massive chaos. it was really silly. i think it was something like 20-30 people total allowed to be killed before you go the worst ending. which is pretty annoying in a game where you're supposed to be an assassin cutting out the corruption and decadence of an empire.

i beat it without killing anyone. far more challenging. but it wasn't kill 3, it was kill more than 20% of the characters in a level and it would raise chaos from low. you could just kill no one though

MS had a pretty good conference. Just don't really care about their franchises.

Yeah, its pretty extreme. I'm just wondering how they're going to work progression mechanics into it. Goals and such. Still seems to be an exploration game with some light combat tacked on.

For me, best of show was Horizon. Had never even heard of it before. And there was the FF7 remake...but that's just Square trolling us. They probably haven't even got past concept sketches yet. It'll be years.
