    That Asylum mission will forever go down as one of the scariest and terrifying experiences in gaming for me ever. I remember my first time playing was during a storm and the power went out in the middle of the damn mission... almost had a heart attack all those years ago.

    IKR? It's so well done, and the atmosphere is superb. The new engine helped that game, and while not as perfect as Thief 2, 3 was still a great addition to the series.

    Damn, now I got to fire it up and see for myself! I'm more of a first person shooter, but I bought this game based on people's opinions here. For what I paid and all I'm not sorry, again just not my kind of game is all. I do have a hard time going back to it after some time, maybe I'll restart it and see...........

    Thief (any of them) isn't a fps, but a stealth game. That said, as someone who is more of a run'n'shoot type of person, these games are great ihmo and have aged nicely (check out the texture mods for a face lift)!

    Ah, yes... Asylum mission was scary AF.
    And in first Thief zombies are implemented so well that they actually scare me away from replaying the game. I just can`t stand them.

    Have you tried Nvidia inspector? It lets you work the settings for all games(depending on its date of production).

    Just started playing this, but i havn't got a clue about anything, as ive not played any of these Dishonored games before, all new to me :p

    I got the Pull Object power, but everytime i try to grab the bottles etc..., with it from a distance, so i can throw them to distract the guards, as soon as i grab them, they just smash straight away, right in front of my face :D

    Bit buggy as well, i as went into a building, and when i got near a window, it came up in the middle 'locked from the inside', and it wouldn't go off, i was going about with 'locked from the inside', plastered in the centre of the screen, i had to quick save/reload, to get the sod off, and i got my first BSOD with the sad face, we're collecting info, before restart job, just as i fired it up, and bent down to look through a keyhole! :D

    Cant recall any bugs or BSODs, but be patient as you familiarize yourself with the game in the beginning. You are in for a very rewarding experience, the game is a masterpiece. If any issues with the gameplay or you get stuck anywhere, check out some of the numerous walkthroughs on youtube.

    I've got almost 90 hours into DisHonored 2, never once had it crash.
    And I've had it since release, back before Arkane improved the performance.

    The game's main issue was always performance, stability wasn't much of an issue. Wonder if something else is causing a conflict.

    I've had a few BSODs in a couple of games recently which I traced back to a new NVMe drive which I cloned windows 10 onto. Wiped the drive clean, re-installed the OS and everything solid now.

    Yeah Outsider runs much much better. I remember playing D2 with a r9 280x, it was running like crap. :D

    With Outsider Arkane had the proper time to actually do it right.
    They said with DH2 they felt the PC version was rushed, and as such they didn't have the proper amount of time to really get the engine to were it needed to be.

    But, they've drastically improved it since release. Game runs great now, and Outsider shows that the problems in DH2 are not just because Void is based off of idTech5. As so many claimed.
    They just didn't have the time they needed.
    And they've stayed true to their word since, promising not to release a title in such a state again. Outsider and PREY both released in great condition.

    when it comes to Dishonored, i think the first game was superior. while the second game was
    amazing, the first game was something special. Corvo is one of those "silent types" that
    brought deep\interesting theme to the series.

    I might replay the first game, since my next singleplayer game is doom which comes in 2 months..

    Got that power that turns em to ash straight away, and they disappear when you kill them, its hilarious when you get 2x together, and you kill one, his mate just goes 'Huh ?',as he disappears right in front of him :D
