Absolutely. More chaos means more guards, more fortifications, more zombies, I'm sorry, "weepers", and more swarms of rats.

There are also little secondary scenes that change depending on the level of chaos.

Have you actually seen the same part of the game in a different chaos viewpoint?

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

Yup. These aren't hidden, hard to see changes either. They are very noticeable.

Good to know, I'm gonna try it once there's been a depreciation.

I am not a Halo fan, though that has more to do with its community than the games themselves. And if there's one thing I can appreciate of Halo, its the live-action trailers. Though this goes far beyond that.
Forward unto Dawn is a 4 part mini-series that follows a group of cadets, just before the events of the first Halo game. The way the show is set up reminds me a lot of Battlestar Galactica, in the way that it focuses more on character development than pure action (though the action scenes are breathtakingly beautiful, especially in episode 3). Even if you don't like Halo, or hell, even hate it, I'd still recommend you'd at least try it.

Few general hints:
There is ALWAYS another way to your goal.
Upgrade Blink as soon as you can.
The second upgrade to possession and bend time (human control and stop time, respectively) take a LOT of points so be careful.
And, this is repeated in the game but bears repeating, save often. You don't get unlimited save slots, only 10, but that seems to be enough.

Starting my second Dishonored playthrough... this time killing everybody. So far its been a challenging, but very boring experience. The fight mechanics are fun when you only occasionally get in a fight, but it feels severely lacking when you're fighting all the time.

I do like how there's rats everywhere now (high chaos), they clean up my mess

Just finished my high chaos. Got to say, it's the small things, but it will be noticed. Especially at the end, when you've already made your choice. Whole final level's quite different between high and low chaos.

The turn to ash power is really great for a stealthy killer, I must say. Cleans them up quite nicely.

And now, for extra effort, I am attempting to get both ghost and no-death for every level.

Also, it's kind of weird that bone charms are randomized.

Here's the thread about it, which was at the top of the page coincidentally.

You've got so far to go, it isn't even funny.

I gave up on that. Read the first act. When I realized the plot was only about starting at that point, and that everything so far had just been set-up, I lost interest.

Common problem. Most people have to supply their own momentum at the start :/

I say most, just to cover my bases. I had to shove forward a bit.

Prequel > Homestuck

That is a theory, yes.

Re: Welcome to the Weirdness

I liked how everything played out though, the Trollian arc was a bit dragging with new characters but I still liked it.




Skipping ahead a few pages helped.


Also, Slick is awesome.

Wait why would you skip shit, that's just going to leave you really fucking confused.

Homestuck is pretty good. People should read it. The fact that it is long should not be a deterrent because that just means there's a lot of good stuff.

Not that quantity = quality as a rule but in this case it happens to be true.

Prequel is just 'what terrible things can we do to this catperson' the comic.

It's not bad but it's kinda depressing.

Depressing is fun!

He's right about the skipping thing. Homestuck does have a tendacy to throw jokes back over thousands of pages if possible.

Also, seriously, don't skip the intermission, whatever you do. That's important plot shit.
