Default Watch Dogs

I just saw this on www.rockpapershotgun.com. Looks pretty cool! Hopefully it doesn't have crippling DRM and actually comes to PC.

Tcch, everyone knows you don’t reveal new game IPs at E3. It’s all about companies trying to out-sequel each other. Or, if you’re Microsoft, being insane enough to believe that anyone on Earth is interested that they’ve spilt more Bing onto their Xbox dashboard. Ubisoft have elected to buck the safe-bet trend with the mighty promising Watch Dogs – an apparently semi-open world game of grand-scale hacking. Includes bringing up a frightening amount of embarrassingly personal information about passers-by at the touch of a button, stealthing into buildings by making everyone’s mobile phones play up, screwing up traffic lights remotely to cause dramatic pile-ups and, somewhat sadly after all that bravura tech-twisting stuff, some trad. shooty-bang-bang. Also, graphicasability which appears to fall firmly into the ‘ultra’ bracket. Though whispers are this is a couple of years off, so salt may need some pinching for now.

Comes across to my over-quickly-opinionising eyes as a more grounded, real-world Deus Ex cut’n'shunted to GTA. Take a look at the first footage, which apparently made the journo-crowds at E3 whoop with even more shamefully unprofessional rapture than they did for Halo 4, below.

I reckon the gun play can be avoided if you want to go a more stealthy path. He didn't have to hack the traffic lights and could have just stayed in the building and waited etc.

Anyway, I'll be keeping my eye on this one for sure.

I hear they're ramping up the difficulty curve a bit: you're gonna have to press X and B to win in this one.

It looks good, but Ubisoft...

Just have to wait and see, but looks quite interesting indeed.

Ubisoft's name is currently mud, I won't hold my breath.

Looks ok.

But probably like all other games these days... the game will play itself.

I think I loathe modern games now...

I'd be more excited about this than anything else if Ubisoft wasn't in charge, with so much time left till a release. They have a nasty habit of changing the way their games work from early trailers > release

This. If it weren't for that, I'd be excited about it.

But here's hoping for GTA with espionage action. I do like the style, the graphics look awesome, the animations are pretty good.

Few things.

It doesnt look that stealthy to me.

Why are all computer game characters now modelled after Hugh Jackman?

Looks like a cool version of GTA - elements of person of interest?
