Friday Night Rant: Thank God Watch Dogs Got Delayed

OnlySP: While I strongly suspect these are the bigger reasons Watch Dogs was delayed, there is also the possibility that it wasn’t ready for prime time. If that was the case then it will be better for Ubi and everyone else if they have the time to crank it up from an 8 range to a 9 range. And if it is already in that territory then hey, every game benefits from polish. I think we all wish certain games intended to become huge franchises had just been delayed until they could be cleaned up like oh say Remember Me. (Industry, Watch Dogs)

I've been calling it since forever. This game is going to go the way of Splinter Cell Conviction. We were given a stunning demonstration of a game concept with unique and interesting mechanics. But the developers didn't actually know what to do with those mechanics, so the game was delayed so they could "make it better". A few years later, the game we got was barely the same game we were promised years before.

I'll go all Herzog and eat a shoe if I'm wrong here, but I doubt I am.

when the hype meets the reality. This game would have been great before gta came out, but now well have to see how it reviews in 2014

Splinter Cell Conviction was a very good game.
