14 Minutes of Watch Dogs

I preordered this on a whim because all the gaming sites were raving about it. I thought the trailers were pretty neat, but after watching this. I'm thrilled that I preordered it. I can't wait to delve into this world of hacking.

Ugh, delayed almost a year. I'm pretty sure this is because GTAV is killing the market and the 360/PS3 version of the game looks so crappy compared to next gen. I think they are only delaying it to optimize the current gen versions of the game, seeing as only early adopters will be buying next gen copies.

It was surprising to hear about this delay. If it is just to polish up the old gen versions then they probably made a mistake by not making it a next gen exclusive title. If they miss their next window in spring and delay it to summer, it'll have more competition. I'd like to get watch dogs, but if I have to choose either it or Destiny, I'd rather pay full price for Destiny and wait on watchdogs.

Its for the better on my part anyways since I'll be hardcoring BF4. Destiny isn't coming out until July according to my gamestop printout. So thats summer 2014. Watchdogs hits a pretty good gap now that I've thought hard on it. lol

Apparently they've delayed their racer "The Crew" too. I wonder if there is something bigger going on at Ubisoft. I hope it doesn't effect The Division, especially after Tom Clancy's death.

Ubisoft's stock dropped by 1/4 because of these delays. If I'm reading this right, the company will be loosing $54 million because of these delays:

Holy crap. I'm sure they'll make up that profit once the games come out, but I'm wondering if this is how THQ started its downfall.

Apparently the original footage is false advertising & Watch Dogs has been graphically downgraded.

Still if I were to ever play this it probably would've been based on game play anyway so I'm glad I don't pay attention to the graphics as much as I probably should.

I haven't pre-ordered it yet, but I'll still pick it up. I hope this isn't one of those games that I buy and then find out they're planning on making 5 DLC expansions for it.

Ubi might have caved to Xbox's demand to be similar or superior visually only... Just about every game that has come out this gen has be reported to run better on PS4. Thats my speculation.

 

 

Not really buying this game for the graphics however. And now that they announced you can turn off the online aspect where I can be left alone while playing, that sold me even more. Its a cool concept, but I dont need someone trying to hack me every 10 seconds in the middle of something important.

      The gameplay looks very similar to the first game, but some of the new stuff is pretty cool. I love the idea of controlling drones in this, but the best part of Watch Dogs to me was the plot. I'm a bit disappointed this isn't an actual sequel. I loved the car driving in the first game. I'd jump in a car and just drive everywhere for the hell of it. Sure some of those car evasions were a pain in the ass. I remember driving for over 10 minutes like a maniac trying to loose some guys before. Good times.

      I never bought the season pass, but I would definitely like to play this DLC. I think I'll wait on reviews for it first tho. I don't want to drop cash on this if its only a single mission DLC. If its a mini campaign then I'll pick it up.

      It looks like Ubisoft will definitely be making a Watch_Dogs 2. Did anyone else get this email?
       

       
      I haven't taken the survey yet, but I did read on other sources that Aiden Pearce may not be the main protagonist in the sequel.
