Dishonored’s Co-Creator Responds To My Few Complaints About The Game

Kotaku - Okay, so Dishonored is excellent. That won't stop me from nitpicking and critiquing some of the things I didn't like about the new stealth-action game.

And if I'm gonna complain about Dishonored, I might as well complain to Harvey Smith, the guy who co-designed it.
While talking to Smith on the phone last week, I decided to bring up some of the little things that bugged me about the game. He dodged nothing, and gave me some great responses.

Here are a few of them. (Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

no southpaw. i mean really, come on arcane? amateur oversight. these games need to come with warning labels so people like me don't waste their money on an unplayable game

Dishonored unplayable? Seriously? It's fantastic!

Interesting read. I really like these articles that explain the thought process behind the games design. Kinda like a directors commentary...

Some of the worst complaints you can make about the game. don't get me wrong i like the game, but there are bigger issues like guards detect you even you 100% sure you are behind cover.

Yep or guards notice a body that youve hidden behind a barricade.

Yeah AI, can be a right mix. I've had one walk past me hidded behind a lampshade but notice a damn corpse on a window ledge with x-ray vision.

But despite this the game does kick ass. I wish AI was a little bit more weary of you, and a little less weary of corpses I've hidden ontop of ventilation shafts 6ft above their head though. The leaning cover isn't brilliantly established that's why it's so easy to make the mistake of getting noticed too. There should have been a personal indicator showing how visible you are on your own hud - not above their head. At least so you know that you're not leaning your entire body out - that's the sort of kinetic feedback you lack in a video game that's there in real life so a substitute would be good.

Also hagfish suck balls.

I seriously find nothing wrong with the game, it's amazing and I love it. Kudos to Arcane and Bethesda :)

When fighting in this game I keep thinking I need a shield(after playing Dark Souls:Prepare to Die Edition so much).

My main complaint with the game, why do I always have to kill someone when I'm caught? What if I'm out of sleep darts and my magic has run low to run away? It's really ridiculous that I can't just knockout someone, other than that I'm really enjoying the game so far.
