Dishonored - Improvisation Run - Part 1 - Twitch VOD

I've been wanting to play Dishonored for an LP ever since I completed the Hitman Let's Play series, but I was struggling to find time to do it.

Then in walked streaming into my life, and suddenly what would've been a huge commitment is now much easier on my time.

The idea for this run to be more "improvisational" than I usually am when playing Dishonored or any immersive sim. When I play for myself, I tend to save scum. If something goes wrong, I'll glad boot up an old save and do it again. And since I'm constantly on the Quick Save key, I'm rarely thrown back too far.

Since so many of the great stories from this genre are born from screwing up and adapting in the face of adversity, I want to force myself to roll with the punches. Since nobody enjoys watching someone else save scum, doing this on stream will force me to break the habit.

It's also nice to have a presence to bounce ideas off of while playing the game. Knowing someone is watching makes it easier to roll with my train of thought and communicate my ideas.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy. If you want to watch this live whenever I next record, be sure to follow my Twitch channel.
