The Knife of Dunwall – FINALE – Past and Present
I return to Daud’s hideout and discover a journal that I had forgotten about from when I first played this DLC; Billie’s journal, detailing her past and how she fell in with Daud. I adored how this journal sets the stage for Meagan Foster in Dishonored 2.
Then, I fumble my way through this final area, eliminating Overseers through a combination of gadgets; magic; and wacky enemy AI, and finally confront Delilah for the first time.
I go wandering aimlessly, in search of Shrines and adventure, and wind up performing a bit of amateur mountaineering. After encountering a weird guy at the Heartbreak Pond and one of those big, sleepy fellas I want nothing to with, I complete one Trial of Strength and flee in terror of another.
Woops. Woops, uh-oh. Woops.
I fumble aimlessly through Barrister Timsh’s townhouse, slowly making a pile of quickly despawning bodies. Eventually, by swapping out Timsh’s papers and tossing the potentially-people sack into the ventilator, I get Timsh to evict himself, though not before getting some more quality dialogue from Billie.
I recover the key to the door leading into the legal district and partner with a wacky masked man to trick Barrister Timsh into evicting himself using a sack obtained from a cultist’s madhouse, which might be filled with people.
Also, we get the famed conversation with Billie where she wonders what the Outsider smells like, so that’s fun.
Or whatever the hell the onomatopoetic spelling for that noise Purah makes is.
I finish lighting the torches in Hateno and enter the Research Lab, meeting the adorable (hundred-year-old) Purah and her assistant. They give me a camera, which ruins me because I’m a complete lunatic.
Should it take about three hours to upload a 10 minute video like this? It feels weird…
Just a bit of design work on the character from my Dark Souls playthrough; just giving her some more variance than the game could provide by itself. But then I got hung up on drawing that bloody sword at an angle, so I made plans to model it in Blender and then got distracted by other art because I’m terrible.
I’ve been a little ill and not super feeling the heftier videos no one watches, so here’s just some highlights and Plays of the Game that I’ve been compiling for a while.
Play of the Game (0:00) – Horizon Lunar Colony (Attack) – D.Va
Highlight (0:36) – Horizon Lunar Colony (Attack) – Sombra
———- Nothing at all special, I just like how this played out.
Play of the Game (1:01) – Horizon Lunar Colony (Defense) – Junkrat
———- What was the reasoning behind buffing Junkrat? There was no reason to buff Junkrat.
Highlight (1:26) – King’s Row (Defense) – Reinhardt
———- *Maniacal cackling* (If I’d veered a bit more to the left, I might have survived this)
Play of the Game (1:52) – Lijiang Tower – Reaper
———- I kind of like how he absorbs health through damage dealt now. It makes surviving this sort of stunt a lot easier.
Highlight (2:16) – Numbani (Attack) – Torbjörn
———- I take a more “hands on” approach of Torbing, in that I have a tendency to ignore what’s happening with the turret and harass people into it with the shotgun.
Highlight (2:42) – King’s Row (Attack) – Orisa
———- I pull Reinhardt back into my line of fire and away from his target so that I can kill him and then watch as the enemy Torb uses his Ultimate after OUR Torb’s turret destroys his. He was HOPPING mad, hurr hurr.
Play of the Game (3:06) – Ilios – Reaper
———- I get a surprising number of PotGs with Reaper even though I only play him during Mystery Heroes.
Highlight (3:31) – Lúcio Ball – Lúcio
———- Lúcio Ball stresses me out by an unreasonable amount compared to the regular game. It’s a lot better than it was last year, though. Scoring a goal by bouncing it off of the wall was a complete accident. I think I got one of the achievements for this, too…
Highlight (3:57) – Lúcio Ball – Lúcio
———- I had saved up an Ultimate just to pop at the start of a round for a surprise goal. Jazzy.
Highlight (4:21) – Dorado (Defense) – Bastion
———- Another character I only play in Mystery Heroes, I Tank™ a bunch of people and then die when I transform back on top of Junkrat’s corpse.
Highlight (4:46) – Horizon Lunar Colony () – Junkrat
———- Speaking of Junkrat, I participated! Yaaay.
———- This highlight, and the three before it, were all recorded with the new Recording system Blizzard implemented into Overwatch. I should use that more often, but I don’t.
Play of the Game (5:11) – Numbani (Defense) – Hanzo
———- Yet another character I only play in Mystery Heroes, I do reasonably well for myself? I honestly really don’t know what I’m shooting at half the time with nipple-boy here.
Highlight (5:36) – Dorado (Defense) – Sombra
———- I rode Orisa like the horse she is. I like to think that I’m helpful as Sombra, but I’m probably not.
Play of the Game (6:02) – Horizon Lunar Colony – Torbjörn
———- I’m kind of always in a race against my turret when I’m a-Torbling, because I don’t want to be That Guy™, but the way the turret works is shenanigans and it always beats me to the punch.
Play of the Game (6:27) – Oasis – Roadhog
———- Another character I only play in Mystery Heroes, I was the sort who was completely unaffected by the nerfs because, even with Original Flavor ‘hog, I could Hook a Mercy, Shoot+Melee her, and still watch as she flew away to safety. Anyways, Whole Hog + an enclosed room makes for a quick Triple Kill.
Highlight (6:52) – Junkertown (Defense) – Mercy
———- It’s weird; I have yet to play Junkertown on Offense. Anyways, this IS the Play of the Game, but I was not involved, simply Resurrecting my team with the new!Mercy while our Reaper got a Team Kill. Then we got another couple of Team Kills in short succession because the two members of the enemy team that weren’t there trickled in to die afterwards.
Play of the Game (7:17) – Junkertown (Defense) – D.Va
———- Roadkill. I ran over Genji, Mercy Resurrected him, then I killed him again with my Ultimate when I got kicked out of the MEKA. Then I died because I didn’t take the cover of the Self-Destruct to escape with my life.
