On the heels of DOOM 3 BFG Edition’s release, we heard feedback from fans: you still wanted a chance to purchase the game’s original 2004 release. Beginning this week, the original version of DOOM 3 and its expansion, Resurrection of Evil, are available at a lower price.
Today on Raptr.com, Dishonored’s co-creative directors, Harvey Smith and Raphael Colantonio, will be answering questions your questions about Dishonored.
The top question (as determined by Raptr’s staff) will win a Dishonored prize pack, featuring a team-signed Boyle Party mask, a signed copy of the game, and an Astro A40 Audio System with Dishonored speaker tags – just like what we had at our PAX Prime Party. Additionally, the next five best questions will score a team-signed Boyle Party mask. Good luck!

Nearly a month has passed since Dishonored’s launch, but the web is still full of stories related to the game. Here’s some highlights worth checking out…
Definitely start with GameFront’s 1-On-1 feature with Dishonored’s Lead Designer, Ricardo Bare. The article examines his career — going full circle from Deus Ex to Dishonored. Here’s a quick tease from the article:
“A twelve-year gaming industry veteran, he made his bones as a junior designer on the original Deus Ex, a game he acknowledges is the spiritual predecessor to Dishonored. An impressive achievement in universe-building and gameplay, Dishonored is built around his view that interactivity, more than story, is key to making a great game. But Bare also writes fiction, with several published short stories and his debut novel due for release in spring, 2013.”

Halloween is always a fun day at Bethsoft HQ. We get plenty of folks that get dressed up for the affair. Even our new intern came ready to work in Mandalorian armor.
We hope you enjoy the group shot above. Sadly, I was so focused on getting Sal and Phil’s Panda costumes (hug!) in the shot, I completely left Jared’s Deadpool costume out of frame. Clever as he is, you’ll see we found an appropriate way to get him involved. Along with Jared, we hope you enjoy a mix of Bethesda-themed costumes and jack-o-lanterns in the Flickr slideshow below.
