Ugh.Another one i have to pick up.Payday, splinter cell, GTAV, BF4,Killzone, Beyond and not to mention the PS4 itself. I need more money.
Same. Can you lend me some?
Go back to COD then it has less thinking and ingenuity and more explosions.
Oh wow, yeah it looks pretty good. Offtopic. Btw I think I know what Ubisoft's new game is. http://www.vg247.com/2013/0... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... They refiled the trademark back in January.
DAAAANG. The graphics still look ok now. Imagine what people were thinking when they say this in 2005! Seriously. This looks good.
remember people are crazy
Looks boring compared to gtav.
I like the idea behind the gameplay, graphically it's looking less impressive every time we see it but mostly I'm just sick of the same cheesy generic characters. The super serious gravel voiced anti-hero with a 'badass' sounding name, the hippie burnout tech guy, the 'cool' cyber goth chick who can hold her own against the fellas. It's all so lame and cheesy and makes me embarrassed to be playing games when approaching 30 years of age. I'm not saying every character has to be completely new and never before seen in a game but look at GTA5. The game is basically about killing innocent people and the thug wanting to get out of the ghetto, the tired old mob guy, the psycho, these aren't totally original ideas but from the first time you see them in action you want to know more about them. What's Michael's connection to Trevor? Who's gonna screw up the whole plan for everybody? How's it gonna end? From the first time you see the characters in Watchdogs, what is there you don't know? Aiden Mcbadass is gonna skulk around being moody and intense, the hippie guy is gonna appear occasionally to call him bro and lighten the mood and the goth chick will help him out with something but be all moody and foul mouthed about it then tell him he's crazy to try and take down the big corporate bad guy and then tell him never to contact her again. He's gonna go into this thing for personal revenge but then uncover some deep conspiracy about the corporations trying to control us by planting chips in ours heads and he's gonna decide he has to take down the big arrogant business guy controlling it all. He's gonna end up in some office pointing a gun at some guy smoking a cigar behind a desk who will tell him there's no point killing him because the plan is already in progress, the guy is gonna act all sure that he will be spared, Aiden Graveldouche will spout one last snappy line then plug the old guy in the head. Cut to the plan going into effect across the city. Cut to credits. Wait for sequel in late 2014.
Nobody's askin you to play Watch Dogs if you don't want to. Me, I'd much prefer to play it than looking into a crystal ball all day long!!
well then become a writer or something, You change it or write an article about it. A single comment wont make much of a difference.
It'll make more difference than 'OMG can't wait!!!1!1!!'. If more people would actually stand up for better and more interesting experiences in games we wouldn't be drowning in generic cheesy crap creatively on par with a Vin Diesel movie because the companies would see that we demand an evolution of the artistic elements of games to match the technical evolution of recent years and they would supply it. You can say I am reading too much into too little info, maybe I am. I tend to think I'm drawing on years of witnessing uninspired games featuring the same old characters and plots to recognise the signs of the same thing in this game but I certainly could be wrong, the game could just look cheesy and generic on the surface. All I will say is, if you're going to say I should hold my complaints and instead get a job writing on a game of my own you better make sure you never complain about any creative work from Twilight to Uwe Boll's next movie because you're attacking the very act of criticising creative works. Firstly, I am not criticising the people funding games like this so much as the people buying them. People who are content to play the same experience in a new setting with a new gimmick over and over and over again are the reason I wouldn't be able to write my own game, they're the reason nobody with any interesting new ideas can get a job in gaming. Because gamers don't want new interesting experiences, they want the same thing they've seen a billion times before, tweaked a little. They want Assassin's creed 12 and another Gears of war prequel. Don't ever complain about the next thousand Assassin's creed games or another unnecessary prequel because I admit I might not be doing much at all to prevent the creative decay of games but you're actively helping it along.
I think you are being very biased and making huge assumptions. I don't think the characters are any more original or interesting in GTA5 than in Watch_Dogs. Whether we end up caring about the characters in either game will come down to the quality of the writing. We'll see. As far as the visuals, I think these recent videos show a very impressive game that pretty much matches the original E3 demo. That water in particular is damn impressive. Finally we have physics driven water in a major AAA game. I also like the physics driven wind effects. The whole city looks amazingly detailed.
That's a very weak argument. You can categorize any character into a simple archetypes by appearance, but that's not sound judgement by any means. GTAV's characters appear as archetypal as you get, if you ask me, and none of them seem to be character types the series hasn't already well-trodden. Ubisoft has been very hush about the story and characters of Watch Dogs, so it's hard to get an accurate impression. I doubt either of them will be really remarkable, but I'm sure both will be enjoyable. Like I said, calling Watch Dogs "embarrassing" and "lame and cheesy" on such severely arguable grounds, both subjective and relative, and when we also have little story information provided is a strawman stance. Making an entire paragraph about your crystal ball prediction, making an unreleased GTAV to be superior by your own far-reaching assumptions, makes it even more of a weak arguemnt. I'll be honest... GTA has rarely impressed me with its writing; inconsistent pacing and unfocused plotting with characters that don't do much more than flap unconstructive banter. The satire is funny, but not exactly what I'd call sophisticated and clever. It's amusing and fun, but not much else. But really, that's perfectly fine as that's pretty much meeting the standards of enjoyable entertainment. I'm content with it.
I still disagree (as sure as you are that the story and characters will be enjoyable I am predicting the opposite based upon the limited info we have so far) but I have to admit you argue your case well. I wasn't expecting anything more than'well u don't half to play it dumb troll' but I see many of your points. I do agree GTA is inconsistent, I just think it's individuality redeems it. Like we've both said, the characters are nothing new taken as they first appear. I just think the moment to moment writing makes them what they are, it may not flow too well, it may not always work but you know it's GTA from the first moment and you cannot mistake it for anything else.
i´m even more pumped for WD after this video
Though I want this game the fact that they never show any activities outside of the missions makes me worry it will be boring. Kind of like GTA 4 where the story and missions were good but there wasn't a whole lot to do when just free roaming. I hope I am wrong.
Im looking forward to picking this up with my ps4, but am the only who feels at times this game could be boring. I don't know entirly what to expect, sure don't get me wrong this is a cool idea for a game but I just hope has that fun factor in it.
