This game really reminds me of Person of Interest

The main guy is like Reese and Finch mixed into one character

@gpturbo81

Hahaha, funny stuff :)

OT: Yeah it seems they drew alot from the show which only makes it more awesome.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   514d ago
Yeah it basically has the same concept. And that's definitely not a bad thing. It's the only crime drama I still watch.

The theme of this and Person of Interest are really interesting because it's relevant to our society and how far some people will take technology.

This game is way too over hyped, it's nothing special at all.
PS3Freak  +   514d ago
You've played it already have you?

I'm beyond excited for this game. Looks amazing.
sonicsidewinder  +   514d ago
I'm with you, Bond. Graphically, yeah it's nice.

Gameplay wise? It 'looks' to be just another Ubisoft game of repetition.

Ass Creed, Far Cry 3. They take the same side-quest'esque ideas and just put it in different settings.

person of interest reminds me a lot of the new batman films which Jonathan Nolan wrote as well, the character is more or less batman (just named the man in the suit) and finch is a mixture of alfred and morgan freemans character who supplies all his gadgets. it's one of my favourite shows at the moment.

This game is looking excellent by the way.

I wonder if we can do both relevant or irrelevant cases. Knowing me i will probably be evil and only do it if i can get money

POI is the best show on on regular tv.

This is one I'll definitely pick up with the next Xbox, might rent on the Wii U just to see how they use the Gamepad with it.
omi25p  +   515d ago
Me to. I just hope its not going to turn out like Assassins Creed 3 did. Over Hyped rubbish
SPAM-FRITTER-123  +   515d ago
haha you got disagreed for saying you are buying it for the Xbox.

I can imagine this game being fun on the WiiU. wouldn't mind trying it with SmartGlass for my PC.
Deku-Johnny  +   514d ago
I can imagine it'll be good on the Wii U, it'll be the 3rd best looking version and the gamepad features could add to the experience of the game.

Like the obvious choice of the touchscreen being the main character's phone making it easier to choose what to hack and giving you the ability to easily switch targets one after the other which is good if multiple enemies are all around you.

So far it looks as though objects are automatically targeted depending on how close you are/where you're facing which could be confusing and irritating if there are multiple objects really close together so having each object in range listed on the gamepad would give you an advantage and make for less stress related controller throwing.
Alcohog  +   515d ago
You're buying the next Xbox?
Conzul  +   515d ago
Now now....some people can afford to get *all* consoles. In their defense M$'s actions recently have pointed to an attempt to develop a nice new crop of IPs. I'll be eating my hat like everyone else if they actually show some impressive NEW games to go with their console.

Unless their console requires always on web connection. Phuck that.

Bottom line is, I'm not going to put money down on something without seeing it first. I'm also not going to commit to buying something that has absolutely no price tag.

I don't think I'm crazy for thinking that way.
#14.1.1
http://n4g.com/news/1178715...

So you say you are "not going to commit to buying something that has absolutely no price tag" but now you say "This is one I'll definitely pick up with the next Xbox"? So the next Xbox already has a price tag? Oh the hypocrisy is strong with this won.
Jek_Porkins  +   514d ago
I think you meant strong with this one, not won. Won is something the Baltimore Ravens did at the Superbowl.

You are correct, I haven't seen anything from Microsoft yet, but I do prefer the Microsoft platforms, even if I do end up with all consoles pretty much every generation.

I suppose if they try and release something at $500 I will pass on it, I have a set price I'm willing to spend for a new console and it tops out at $400.

I have a good feeling that the leaked Microsoft documents were correct and they will have a SKU at $299, or at the least have a subsidized version like they have with the current Xbox.

I do however already own a Wii U, and the Gamepad looks intriguing with Watch Dogs, so I'll keep my eye on it. One thing for sure, it looked good on PC at the Sony conference "unveiling" the PS4.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   514d ago
Why are you responding to @ Lvl_up_gamer?

I haven't even made a comment on this article until now.

What could you possibly be responding too?

You are off topic and have been reported.

Stupidity on this site just keeps getting more more stupid.
StrongMan  +   514d ago
Yes, I did mean "one" instead of "won". Won is something Sony did in two console generations.

I forgot you were also Raven_Nomad who loves the Baltimore Ravens. Hats off to them for the win. But they are making a mistake if they are going to give Flacco a max contract. Ray Lewis retired and he is an irreplaceable locker room presence and Ed Reed is on his last leg and will probably retire next year so the defense won't be the same. It will all be on Flacco from now on and he's too inconsistent for a max contract.

I think you put too much stock into winning console generations. I jumped full board into the Dreamcast and I had no regrets, I feel like I was happier in the first couple of years of that console than PS2 owners were with theirs.

There is obviously new competition from a lot of different areas, smartphones and tablets. Sony didn't win the past generation and you still seem to enjoy that console yes?

To me, numbers are for stock people, I play what I want and don't worry about what others think. As long as the things I enjoy sell enough to garner continued support, then I'm a happy camper.

Reed wont be back with the Ravens, Flacco deserves to get paid because once they switched O-coordinator, he really let it fly. Flacco, Rice and Torrey Smith are the next Aikman, Smith and Irvin.

I'm shocked you could reply, I don't see how you got an extra bubble when all you do is troll Microsoft and Nintendo, but props for working this terrible system.

@Nunchez,

LOL, because this is a Sony Defense Force gathering place, that is why. Logic doesn't work here, it is Either with us (Sony) or Against Us (Microsoft). I came here just for the comic relief.

Because he doesn't know anything about the next Xbox?
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   515d ago
I am surprised about how excited I am for this game-

I can't wait to see what they do with the WiiU Game pad.

PS: I'm not Disagreeing with people who want it on other systems- Why?
The point is this game looks amazing-

and if done right it could be a MILESTONE in gaming History.

I hope everybody on any platform buys this so that Ubisoft & other companies will feel that all of the effort/ time/ money is worth it.

gta2800  +   514d ago
Being a huge fan of GTA and sand box games I can easily say I am hyped for this game...but I don't think it will be better than GTA. This is a open world game but it emphasizes more on action and doing all this hacking stuff than to just free roam and mess around...or at least that's what it seems like. GTA games are always very lively. In GTA 5 you can ride boats, go for a hike in the mountains, go to the beach, play tennis, interact with pedestrians and all types of stuff. I don't think Watchdogs will have all that type of stuff...but I'm not complaining..I'm getting both!

Cam977  +   515d ago
I don't like it, it's too reminiscent of BF3, DEAD SPACE 3 and all of the other boxes with 'hero' stood with a gun out.
coolbeans  +   515d ago
Beat me to it. Just another uninspired "hero holding gun" box art.

Would've been nice to see some sort of techie-inspired theme, like an eagle eye view of the city connected via cameras, cell phones, etc. (only hinted at in this one).

Unfortunately that isn't the way to go anymore. As much as if like it to be, it just isn't. There are so many kids playing games nowadays that a niche boxarr style for any game would put them off. It's a shame really. I could see boxart such as the EU MGS1's working for this game.

I take a glimpse at my shelf an the games with a generic boxart as date are Dark Souls, AC3, BF3, AC3:L, Hitman: Absolution and many more. I wish boxart was good, sure, we do see some great boxart but it is just drowned out by the frequency of poor boxart.

His left arm feels weird. The Perspective of it feels wrong, too big for the body. On top of that, if you can imagine where his elbow is, it will feel like he has a really long left arm. And the look in his eyes makes him look just like another common thug with a gun. I hope they change the boxart to reflect more of what kind of game it really is.
Kevlar009  +   515d ago
The best part about this game is it doesn't matter who your loyalties lie with, EVERY console is getting it (except for Wii, obv)

We all can revel in what should be an amazing game if the hype holds true

meh, dont like the box art.

need to be something unique not generic.

look at Sleeping Dogs' boxart. or resistance 3. those are unique and eye catcher.

This is what happens when a potentially great game has box art designed by a generic art team.

I'd love to see something more Orwellian on the front than a guy who, to most, will look like an assassin with an iPhone.

I dont like the way Watch_Dogs is displayed. Instead of making the words look like that, make that effect around the words like a broken screen but in the middle, the words are clears as day, if you get what i mean.

Is the hype for this game out doing GTA5? I know that game is still coming later this year as well, but Ubisoft is really making this appear as the must have game this holiday season for gamers interested in sanbox openworld gritty games.
