5 Games You Should Play This Week


If you are looking for a game that adapts to whatever play style you throw at it, Dishonored is for you. This stealth-action game is set in the fictional world of Dunwall, which has a little bit of a steampunk feel. You play Corvo, a bodyguard framed for murder of the Empress who must win his honor back... by killing everyone. Dishonored is a stealth game, but it reacts a lot to the choices players make. You can choose to kill your assassination targets with physical attacks, magic, by possessing a swarm of rats or through other non-violent means. These choices affect your game's progression and yield different results. One of the creative minds behind Dishonored is Harvey Smith, who also helped make one notable classic game, Deus Ex. Dishonored is available now for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
