ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 Review
Post by Steve Farrelly @ 03:27pm 08/10/12 | 34 Comments
By now the Internet has exploded with reports of Dishonored's foray into the videogame landscape as not only one of the year's best releases, but also one of this generation's.

And they'll all be right. Arkane's first effort under the ownership of publisher Bethesda is one of the most exciting IPs I've had the pleasure of entering in to, and the more of its amazing world I understand, the more I hope that it proves an amazing success so we'll see more. From a videogame perspective, it's the perfect antithesis to almost every other first-person game on the market, or about to come into the market. If you like single-player games, player-choice, stealth and incredible narrative, this is one not to be missed.

It looks interesting, but the Australian mark-up kills it for me.

Three Frys in a row, what an odd day.

Definitely looking forward to this, been keen on a good ol' fashion open choice RPG, and with artwork style similar to Half-Life 2 its an added bonus.

Have a boxed copy on order from ozgameshop. I'm happy with the $41 I paid.

$41 is much better :) anything over 50 is a rip off

looks awesome.
$41 is good. but when do you normally receive your copy? a couple days after release...a week or two?. i paid $79 on steam, but its preloaded and i can play as soon as its released. thats how i justify paying the extra $ even thou we are getting ripped in aus.

Normally receive my stuff from Ozgameshop within 10-14 business days. For the money I'm saving it's worth it, I got plenty of games to play for the next 10 days I'm not going to miss out on much.

you can get a cd key from greenman for $45. They send you the key instantly - just need to download the game through steam, I was able to pre-load this time.

I have only done 5-10 minutes max and I'm already enjoying it. Has an amazing Half-Life 2, Thief and BioShock feel to it which I really love.

Thief and BioShock are two of my favourites, you are a temptress.

It really makes me hope the Thief devs see this and really make Thief 4 more awesome.

Thief, Bioshock, Half-Life 2, rich and detailed story - shut up and take my money!! It's £30 on UK Steam ($46AUD).

These guys also made Dark Messiah, which I thought was totally awesome despite reviews bashing it, so I'm looking forward to playing this

The combat definitely looks interesting, puts Skyrim to shame several years earlier. :/



Looking at the company, they also made Arx Fatalis, which was a pretty amazing game. I played through most of it sometime in the last few years.

It's good, very very good so far. Reminiscent of the gripping immersion of Thief, of which I am a massive fan.

Is it really heavy on stealth like Thief? Cos I'm not a big fan of games that are all about stealth, I usually end up getting bored with them. I really liked the atmosphere and the world of the Thief games, but I never ended up getting very far in them cos I ended up getting annoyed at the gameplay, I think I'm just too impatient to play really stealth heavy games :(

This is getting tonnes of good reviews though and I was thinking of picking it up, but not if its going to be something I only end up playing for a few hours and shelve away.

You could play a pretty crazy assassin in the thief games, it's how I used to play until I learned to appreciate the 'being a ghost' style of play (which can get annoying tbh). Which was why I thought that the Thief 3 team were idiots for removing the sword and replacing it with the 'noisy blackjack' dagger. Sword fights were great.

My impressions of Dark Messiah were a bit like Metro 2033 and Mirror's Edge - there's not a bad game underneath there, if you can push past the annoying tendency of the FPS camera point of view being frequently grabbed away from the player.

I read this review not knowing a thing about what Dishonored was about.

Other than the fact it makes someone happy in the pants I still have no idea what the game is about.

You can literally do whatever you want in your approach to objectives. Most of the time there is three obvious ways, stealth around and avoid everything, kill everything or stealth and take out key guards/people. You don't have to be sneaky and you can change it up, however different endings are rewarded for different methods.

played through a few hours trying to be stealthy and being nice to people, got tired of being f***ed over. from now on i kill everyone in sight!

I'm having an absolute blast in this. I love it. I'm playing the stealth route on hard, only killing what I can't avoid, knocking people out to hide bodies and ghosting the rest. When I figured out though that you can Blink past people who are looking off to the side (enough to get their attention if you walk straight past them) though things got simpler for me and was able to take some otherwise messy routes past people.

This game better go on sale somewhere at some point for cheaper than it currently is, as missing release date means that I've committed to a sale or never.

I have gone though most of the game and I have to say I am impressed overall. I liked the story and setting for the game, characters are good also.

Some things they could have added in like rifles. Does this nation only use 1-4 shot pistol for everything. Assassins only use the hand x-bow. Some more abilities would be cool.

I give this game 8.5 - 9/10
