Dishonored Tales - Creative Writing Contest

Your dare for Dishonored Tales is to research the city of Dunwall and craft your own mischievous story that takes place in its plague stricken streets. Should you wish, you can join with your artistic cohorts to weave your tale of Dunwall. Tales can feature the characters and lore encountered within the game or be twisted to suit the chronicle.

This Week on Chalk Talk…

Last Friday on Chalk Talk we discussed Gamer Girls, asking GameSpotters where the femme fatales of the gaming world fit in exactly. The discussion got rather heated and there were many varied and articulated points made. This week’s topic is “War, hum.. Good gosh. What is it good for?" where we have asked bloggers to examine realistic military shooters. Are they unjust portrayals of tragic and gruesome events or are they simply another genre to be entertained by.
