Also, ghosting this game seems almost impossible.

Ghosting was no problem even on Very Hard but not in no powers where it is probably impossible

Is it now in good shape? (from the technical perspective)

am doing a run through in high chaos and your sword dices the the guards and others into lumpy pieces. you can end up with arms and legs, heads, and 2 half's of a body cut through at the waist in all its gory details.

I finally got around to finishing my first time through with Corvo. Playing the mostly low-chaos, non-leathal assault style I really enjoyed the game.

 

However I do have a couple points about story...

 

Spoiler

 

So there's my two cents on the matter. Otherwise I really loved the experience and I plan on being more scrutinizing with searching the levels (cleaning them out more) on my next playthrough as Emily.


Needing dem environment models?

Yesterday, I could not resist any longer and bought the game from my Christmas money. Just one question: Is there a sginificant difference in gameplay/story when playing as Corvo vs playing with Emily? I started my non-lethal playthrough with Corvo (which is, as far as I can tell after Chapter 2, very similar to part one) and wondered, if there are any major differences as Emily.

I don't think there's any major story differences from what I could gather. I haven't confirmed that as I haven't started my Emily play through yet.

the tutorial in the second game is basically corvo teaching emily how to use her non void skills. basically the hide and seek from first game.

 

emily has different void skills than corvo. although a recent patch means if you've played as the other one then you can get either emily and corvo's void skills in a game+.

Having completed it as Corvo and Emily I think that Emily is easier if you are trying for all runes / all Souvenirs while ghosting as you can use pull and link to great effect

However pull is one of the more aggravating ones as there isn't a separate key for it and you can often use far reach when you don't want to (quick save is a godsend here)

I thought I'd play as the "usual" i.e. Corvo first. I actually try to get at least all runes and bone charms, but have already missed one rune in chapter two. I think I depended too much on the heart and missed a side quest somewhere. Anyway, I think Emily will be very interesting, too. I just was not sure if I can look forward to a different story, but apparently not.

Some Emily's features, like Domino and Mesmerize, can make your playthrough simpler and funnier :). The story, AFAIK, is pretty the same, excluding comments on the environment.

I haven't played Dishonored 2 yet, but, isn't it like in part 1, where you get a "detector" which tells you where the runes are?

Yes, the heart makes a return. Also, been playing a bit of Dishonored 2 yesterday. It seems guards can notice missing loot and open doors now, just like in TDM.

Steam still has its winter sale, where you can get it for 40€, if this is not too much for you.

Thanks, i saw that. Not low enough for cheapskate-ish me though. :D I may grab it when i see it at a reseller for a low enough price. I actually bought Mankind Divided just, for 16 € on Steam, so i hope that Dishonored 2 might hit that mark soon too. Or, at least, below 30 €.

Here we are :D

 

Is it possible to disable the horrible vignette effect when I'm crouched down?

I too crummbled and got it on the steam sale. Feels very nice as the first one did. A bit framey here and there on 1070.  Not a major problem.

 

"Is it possible to disable the horrible vignette effect when I'm crouched down?"

 

Yeah I too dislike this big time. Given I tend to play 90% of the game crouching - its seem a major oversight to have almost half the screen faded out for most of the game I think. A crouching icon would be far preferable...

So, anyone knows how to:

*turn off/modify the default sharpening (it's good but I prefer to control the value)

*disable the vignette when crouching

 

:(
