Call it morbid, call it gruesome, call it what you will. But murdering corrupt guards in creative ways is one of the most satisfying things you can do in Dishonored, the triumphant stealth-action game that hits store shelves tomorrow.
While playing the game over the past week or so, I killed enemies in quite a few ways. Here are some of my favourites:
Step 1: Throw sticky grenade. Step 2: ??? Step 3: Profit.
Sometimes, enemies will drop body parts. This is never not amusing.
You can hijack enemy watchtowers and use them against their former masters. This is the result.
Nothing like slowing down the world and setting everyone on fire.
Tesla coil operational!
Stole this one from the Dishonored strategy guide: you can attach a springrazor trap to a rat, slow down time, possess that rat, run into a group of enemies, then zoom out of the rat's body just in time to watch it explode in a beautiful rainbow of gore.
Nothin' like a good ol' fashioned rat devouring to get the juices flowing.
This one is my favourite. Presented without comment. Enjoy!
