Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches DLC Review

You probably noticed that we ran a story last weekend about how Square Enix’s Thief has turned jumping into a context-sensitive action, with the lead level designer explaining this decision by saying: “Jumping, bouncing up and down, kind of broke the immersion … We didn’t want you to be the master thief and you just tend to fall off stuff all the time.”
I mention this now because Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches does let you jump, and – even though I regularly fall off stuff because, although I’m supposed to be the legendary master assassin Daud, I’m actually an idiot puppeteering his body – I find this quite immersive.

Bethesda posts cryptic looping video, says it’s not about Fallout

Oh that Bethesda, always toying with us.
Their latest cryptic move, as spotted by NeoGaf, is to post a looping video on Vine (I don’t even know what Vine is, am I old?) showing glimpses of barbed wire and a pair of LPs (I know what LPs are, I’m definitely old.)
One record is attributed to Bach, while the other is labelled as “The Moonbeam Trio.” Bethesda’s Pete Hines has already given a pretty resounding nope to suggestions that this could be a Fallout thing.
