With less than a year since Dishonored 2‘s release, we have a standalone expansion by the name of Death of the Outsider. That alone explains what’s going to happen within. Given that the title doesn’t bear the “2” in the title of it, it’s hard to see where this fits in. Death of the Outsider takes place after the second game, but ties in with events and follows up on things from the original, so a number in the title doesn’t help it or hurt it for that matter. Death of the Outsider serves more of an epilogue to Dishonored 2, by tying up loose ends, and is perhaps the end to the series as we know it.
Dishonored 2’s second free game update with additional Custom Difficulty Settings and Mission Selectwill be available worldwide today for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
This year Rex decided to be different and call his list the “Favorite Games of 2016”, but honestly, there are 10 games here and some honorable mentions. Why isn’t it a “Top 10 Games of 2016” list like everyone else? I’ll never know. But what I do know, is that Rex has played a healthy amount of games this year, and distilling those games to get these results onto this list couldn’t have been easy.
The above is in no way a spoiler of Justin’s number one game, but it definitely appears on this list. Justin has been busy this year between YouTube, writing, and of course his family and other real-world obligations. This is why Justin has assembled a hearty list of games he’s played this year, and if you haven’t played something from this list, you should be convinced to start.
There aren’t ten games here, but there’s some solid and worthwhile games that Nate played throughout 2016, one of which was a surprise. Though Nate juggles his work schedule, relationship, and other hobbies, he had to be selective with his game purchases and time devoted to playing them. Here are the top 5 games Nate played in 2016, with an honorable mention to start it off.
Dishonored 2’s first free game update with New Game Plus will be officially available worldwide on Monday, December 19th for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will release today as a beta on PC.
Dishonored was a very big surprise hit for me. For a few reasons, one being that it totally came out of nowhere for me. The other, because playing through this multiple times lead me to coming away with two very different experiences. The first time I did more aggressive and killing, the second, sneaking and stealth. It was the first time I felt a game truly offered a different core experience depending on my playstyle. Does Dishonored 2 continue this feeling? Yes oh yes!
