Abnormal Mapping 17: Dishono(u)red Halloween

dishonored cover

We don the masks of the harvest reaper to stalk the dank halls of a far off land of clockwork intrigue and steam-powered assassination, perched on the balustrades of our own mental palaces, poised to strike in the blink of an eye. What are we waiting for? Only the final strike of the witching hour, when we will descend and offer up that vengeful mantra of horror that was granted to us by the great Machiavellian evil: Thnks fr th vidya gms. It’s enough to make a person’s blood run cold, robbing even the most comforting evening of matching three or grinding levels of hope and rendering it an empty shell of its former self. This is where fun goes to die. This is where For Glory is only a long-forgotten menu option, and not an ideal to strive for. This, my friends, is Dishonored Halloween.

On a serious note, the Lana Polansky article we reference heavily in segment 2 can be found here.
