    I'm trying to do a no-powers run. Possibly a mistake, but I'm not ready to give up on it yet.

    I beat Dishonored 1 + dlc on the highest difficulty, ghost and clean hands. This game has about 2x 3x the amount of dudes packed into the same given amount of space, and they're about twice as observant and I'm only on medium. It's so crazy I'm wondering if there's something bugged with the difficulty settings.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Last night while playing I was getting some real weird stuff with civilians randomly freaking out and calling the guards on me/spotting me. Given I'm trying to Ghost every stage, having otherwise indifferent civilians suddenly spot me and call the guards is real annoying. I don't even do anything, and they don't always do it, but why do they just suddenly get terrified of me and run screaming? I haven't got my weapons out, I haven't knocked anyone out, they haven't seen me doing any crimes, they're just scared of me.

    Depends on if you're obviously not supposed to be there, like a mansion. But yeah if it's out on the streets that's not right.

    I think it might be something to do with AI not resetting on quick load, because they could have spotted me before I reloaded and then keep the behaviour that they're scared of me even when I've done nothing this time around.

    I had something like that happen

    Some lady saw me choke out a guard, so she ran and alerted the guards, but I managed to hide

    Then I think she found a new place to stand around and when I approached her she freaked out again, even though I wasn't in a place I shouldn't be

    I think it was because it was the same NPC I had spooked earlier

    Just finished the first mission and got my powers and stuff
    Mom is judging the shit out of me for all those murders I honestly might go back and non-lethal it

    Except that fucker who betrayed me and killed my personal guard

    I'm still throwing him out a window

    also I missed two paintings? I didn't even see paintings with an option to take them

    The paintings are pretty hard to find a lot of the time. Typically they're portraits of recognisable characters or on display to be grabbed. The captain of the guard that betrayed me? I knocked him out, took my signet ring back, and locked him in the panic room forever. He'll die in there. I don't know how that's considered the non-lethal option.

    the description specifies
    he has a supply of water and barely enough food

    also, technically it's not non-lethal, it's non-chaos

    and in theory
    they would be able to break in and get him out eventually so he's got enough rations to survive until then

    seriously though the heart is so disappointed in me

    I'm gonna try not to kill as many people later I guess, just seemed like killin the folks who staged a bloody coup made sense

    I know that when I picked Emily that Delilah just stole his mark off him when he tried to teleport around the joint to stop her. She probably does that then he gets away or something.

    Couldn't let him live, given how annoying his robots were to fight

    Killed him by shooting the head off one of his clockwork soliders and let it do the rest

    I kinda feel like Corvo should be a New Game Plus thing, and you shouldn't be able to play as him the first time

    I GUESS it's fine to just let people have that from the jump, but the story is centered around Emily in such a way that not having her be the player character is just weird

    Even when you have the decision, they don't let you make an informed one

    You have no idea what the differences between the two characters will be when you choose

    So, i've been finding runes that just seem completely inaccessible in the first two major levels
    like something behind a grate in a canal in the first level of karnaka, and the basement in the hospital

    Are these just only available on corvo's playthrough or am i just completely missing something?

    That first one
    I got by cooking a grenade and lobbing it through the grate so it blew up the blockage and the rune just dropped out. Haven't gone to the institute yet so can't help on the second one.

    Well my first attempt
    I didn't cook the grenade, I just threw it. Of course, there is water flowing out of that grate, so all I got was a live grenade that slowly bobbed towards me.

    On mission five or so and I think I'm gonna have to forego my no powers run for the time being - it's just the goddamn worst. At least with the way saves are managed it will be easy to go back to it, maybe bump the difficulty down to easy and finish it off.

    Think there's something to this, like they spawn in they world already alerted. Also, guards in this are just way too fucking observant. The first level to get to the ship is gonna be a big "fuck you" to any new players who want to try to ghost things.

    I just did it with about 5 reloads and it was reasonably ok. But I feel like when you get seen it's less like "I fucked up" and more like "Really? REALLY?"

    I'm in the second mission and I'm carrying a submission-critical body out of a building and there's a group of people nearby that shouldn't be able to see or hear me but when I cross the threshold they FREAK THE FUCK OUT. While I was farting around trying to get a way out of ir before reloading I hit a guy with a sleepdart and when the dart took effect after a second his body launched into the air like there was an explosion.

    The AI is definitely reacting to the body instead of me so I threw it through the doorway then ran before I could be spotted then dealt with the enduing chaos.

    It's beautiful and more Dishonored but some of it seems to have a Bethesda level of QA polish for me so far.

    On the one hand, I appreciate it telling me on each level how many runes, charms, etc I found.
    On the other, I'm finding that my OCD won't let me continue until I find all the big stuff. (With treatment, I've learned to accept missing 1000 money)
    I've got all the paintings on mission 2, but one of the blueprints eludes me.
    I would be prepared to spend a lot of runes to upgrade the heart to point out more collectibles. Heck, I'd buy it as DLC.
