New titles are quite rare. Each time I see one with so much potential, I wish it good luck as it gets unleashed to a world filled with sequels with added multiplayer and titles released on a yearly basis. Seeing Dishonored get high praise placed a huge smile on my face, especially since this title is coming from a fairly new developer. Now, the only thing I now hope for is Dishonored finding the same success in sales. No matter what, that's an important factor in a new title's success.

If there are any other reviews missing in the list, hit the comments for the rest of us to see.

Dishonored comes out on October 9 for NA, October 12 for EU on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.


Dishonored's interactive trailer lets you choose what to do

Dishonored Bethesda released another interactive video for their new IP Dishonored. If you remember the last interactive video that lets you choose which powers to use for the given situation, this one is similar but lets you choose a lot more.

Bethesda really knows how to promote their games. I'm a huge fan of these interactive videos that are now showing up in Youtube. It's a great way to show case games with a lot of emphasis on player choice. You can actually fail in this interactive video. This is an actual mission in the game so it's a minor spoiler, fair warning.

You play as a supernatural assassin that's driven by revenge. You are given a set of abilities like possession, blinking, and summoning rats, which gives you a lot of choices on how to tackle this game. Its one of those games that you can actually finish with just stealth. If you're not into stealth, you can just go guns blazing.

Dishonored comes out on October 9 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
