Her mother, the Empress Jessamine and de facto ruler, is murdered when she is ten and her father, Jessamine’s bodyguard and spymaster Corvo Attano, wanted for killing her. Of course, … More Dishonored 2: The Joys of High and Low Chaos
This is the second of my favorite missions, straight off Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. As I have already elaborated, this game was not quite what I expected. That is not, mind you, a bad thing per se.
