Review of Dishonored 2

Carrying on in your Father’s Footsteps

Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano – This is the first of many important choices that will drastically change the way you play Dishonored 2. Will you take no prisoners and deal with those who wronged you lethally, or adopt a more passive approach in the pursuit of justice? Is your assassin supernaturally inclined, or will you focus more on the weapons in your arsenal to reach your target? Side with a local gang, or join up with the Overseers?

An Example of Long-form Writing: My Dissertation

The Cinemasochist Blog

The Cinemasochist is a blog run by myself, Mitchell Cork, a London based 3D Animation and Game Design graduate. This blog will focus on the demonstration of my journalistic work; Reviews, Opinion Pieces, Top 10 Lists, Spotlights and more are examples of the kind of content you can find here. The areas which my work will cover will focus primarily on the Games and Film industry, but may at times cover other similar areas of importance. I intend to cultivate this blog by supporting it via a mix of written and video content, so that in time it is a prime showcase of my abilities as a professional in the journalistic field.

That’s it for now, and I hope this brief paragraph accurately surmises the purpose and intention for the Cinemasochist blog.
