Many developers have been going darker with the tones of stories lately. It's time we stop asking definitively if this is a good or bad thing and consider the artistic value at hand.
Dishonored 50% Price Cut This Week On Amazon
As part of Amazon’s featured weekly deals, last year’s stealth-action hit Dishonored is on sale for $29.99. The fifty percent cut in price coincide nicely with the newly released DLC pack Knife of Dunwall. If you haven’t yet played Dishonored this is a great opportunity to try your hand at navigating the world of Dunwall from the shadows. If you also happen to pick up the DLC note that while it is story DLC you do not play as the main protagonist Corvo. Instead The Knife of Dunwall tells Daud’s story, one of the main games antagonist, from the introduction at the Dunwall Tower through to the confrontation with Corvo.
In addition to Dishonored being fifty percent off, a much more recent title has seen a notable price cut. Just about a month after release Epic Game’s prequel entry in the Gears of War franchise Gears of War: Judgement is 33% off for final price of $39.99. Not as significant a cut as dishonored, but for only being a month old, if you need something to scratch that third person shooter itch, Judgment did fairly well with critics. Judgement places you in control of Baird from the previous games, but in the events just after the events of E-day. Similar to Dishonored, Judgment also has a bit of DLC coming out soon, in the form of a map pack due out next week.
Dishonored is available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, whereas Gears of War: Judgment is only available for Xbox 360. In addition to the two deals highlighted check out more on the Amazon page. It also features Madden NFL 13 for PS3 for $29, Forza Horizon on Xbox 360 for $44, Battlefield 3 Premium Edition for $40 on PS3 and Asura’s Wrath for Xbox 360 for $18.
The deals are good through to next Sunday. Enjoy.
