I’m on vacation after a busy, busy March so let’s keep this short. This week: An extended Dishonored 2 demo, a Mass Effect patch, Batman’s VR adventures making their way to the PC, a look at Absolver’s meaty hand-to-hand fights, Twitch’s entry into video game retailing, “Steam Explorers,” and a jaw-dropping Tron ride built within Planet Coaster.
This is gaming news for April 3 through 7.
The Dishonored 2 PC launch last fall was an unmitigated technical disaster, and I’d bet a fair few people skipped it for that reason. It seems like a smart move then for Arkane and Bethesda to release an honest-to-goodness demo, allowing you to take on the first three missions of the game (probably about two hours if you take your time), with progress carrying over if you decide to purchase the game afterward.
