"We need innovations, we need a real breakthrough in gaming… so I’m asking Ubisoft to NOT disappoint us and make Watch Dogs the game that everyone will remember!"
You will eat your words, and fart out those words out when you realize your wrong.
Agreed. I think it's a little late for this joker to be asking Ubisoft for anything. Let them release their game. I bet it will be both beautiful and fun. Looks like a sort of open world Splintercell/AssasinsCreed to me, with cars and explosives, so I fail to see how it can go poorly. I'm expecting quality.
Expect to see your HUD marked up with objectives and treasures and the like. Points of interest that unlock sections in your map. Gonna be just like AC
I don't expect anything special out of Infamous Second Sun or Watch Dogs. For the players that those games were made for, I think they will be amazing games. Neither one of them looks that interesting to me, but just because something doesn't interest me, doesn't mean it can't be great. I hope both games do very well, but there seems to be something "missing" from both of them. The gameplay doesn't feel or look next gen.
I expect it to have as little depth as the AC series.
Have you not seen how boring the game looks or are you blind?
You obviously haven't seen that 18 minute game-mechanic showcase they had earlier this year. They showed the online interactions, stealth and realtime events that happen randomly etc. I got super excited because it looked anything but generic... but that was before the visual downgrade, so I hope nothing more than visuals have been affected... I mean now it looks like Watch Dogs PS4 is basically just Watch Dogs PS3 in 1080p instead.
See this is why people come out of games disappointed. I don't see what's wrong with playing games that just do thing well, if it doesn't set the world on fire then that's not a "pre order cancelled". What's wrong with just playing a good game, and if it happens to be so innovative, then that's fine too.
It will be hilarious.
I've been worrying worrying about this. Everyone else is worried about the graphics and other things that don't really matter. But nobody is asking questions about gameplay and Ubisoft isn't saying much about it. This article doesn't do much to help either, as it's main focus is on the visual downgrade. I want to know about the gameplay. Ubisoft hyped Assassin's Creed 1 and got us all excited, but it turned out to be repetitive and average.
That's EXACTLY what I'm worried about. Hacking looks awesome, I'm just really hoping it can live up to it's hype. And the graphics are something I'm not worrying about...sure, great graphics are awesome, but not a necessity. People make too much of a big stink over it.
That's why I'm hoping WiiU will provide something worth my time
I'm thinking in a worst case scenario Watch Dogs was about to be amazing but then they stumbled into development hell because they had to balance the next-gen versions to the last-gen versions because obviously they can't just fully utilize the processing powers of PS4 and XB1 and still have all the same mechanics on PS3 and 360, unless the only downgrade was the graphics. The ambitious project had it all, then lost it because of cross-gen limitations and ends up flopping. Best-case scenario: They delayed the game to fine-tune AI and gameplay and as an end result the game became too unstable on PS3 and 360 so they had to fundamentally change some stuff in the engine and therefore they couldn't avoid downgrading the graphics on PS4 and XB1. The game ships and plays like a friggin joy, gets praise for innovative gameplay and open-world design everywhere.
They are trying not to make it a GTA "clone" and it may be a good thing.Need to see more though because of all those not good news that going on at the moment
Sure it "may" but that's all opinion. No matter what Watch Dogs ends up being there will be excitement and disappointment. I for one can't wait to play this yet of course others don't feel that same sentiments. Also you don't have to "innovative" to be a good game.
well they delayed it of a reason
So it's GTA with a phone hacker. Sounds...meh. I would much prefer Sleeping Dogs 2.
its always looked mediocre to me. just another third person shooter with a gimmick. no real depth beyond that. although i may just be being overly picky because ever since the souls series started last gen, everything else just feels so shallow in gameplay compared to it and with DS2 having just come out and so far being everything id hoped for and more, life is good
That's how I feel since last year with The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls. Nothing that's come out since can really hold a candle to them. But I am excited for Watch Dogs and I hope it's not like GTA because I can't stand that series.
People speak of Innovation when any attempt at it is dismissed as a gimmick. Can we let the assumption that everything new is a gimmick die? Would you have bought it if they just did everything GTA V did? No. I like the concept of hacking everything.
But Sleeping Dogs WAS a GTA with a phone hacker...only Shen hacked CCTV, picked safes and triangulated signals with his phone.
Except the combat was awesome and different although guns could been a little better without going over the top arsenal as GTA does.
SD2 is practically a must--after TR was my favorite game by them not a JRPG. It was a sleeper hit though as deserved better IMO. Since they are made by different companies though I am likely going to enjoy both WD and SD2 some point so a win win in my book.
Clickbait article of course. More of what we need in N4G
No way this game is gonna suck, if anything this will most likely be the best multiplat title when it releases. Ubisoft doesnt really make bad games, and it definitely seems they care for the quality of Watch dogs.
is it because of the so called downgrade of gfx lol. people are so funny. everyone was so happy before cause of the gfx and concept, now they hear it might be problem they just toss them to the side when the gameplay concept is still there. the age of console gfx whores. you can see how obvious it is. "We also can’t assume that the PC version is above what Ubisoft showed us, as it seems to me a bit illogical to showcase a mediocre version of a game when you can advertise “the best”." ahhhhh they pub and dev did this always. when has the pc version of games been showcased unless theyre mainly pc devs and dont care what you think. ex bf3 looks like bf4. did you see them displaying the pc versions constantly or even commercials. like i said its obvious what type this guy is "We can assume that the game was running on a high-end PC for that version, while the version revealed a few days ago was on a “limited” PlayStation 4. Of course, PS4 is in no way limited but the lack of AA, depth of field and water physics got us worried." lmao new age gfx whores "We need innovations, we need a real breakthrough in gaming… so I’m asking Ubisoft to NOT disappoint us and make Watch Dogs the game that everyone will remember!" oh now on last sentence they want to talk about innovation lol. you should always shouldnt get hype so when the game drop you can play it for what its worth instead of hyping every pretty looking game. practice that with ALL GAMES.
Why don't we wait to play and see it for ourselves?
Finally! Someone that won't judge a game before they get their hands on it! I think it will be truly exceptional.
There are plenty games that do revolutionary things out there. Little Big Planet, Sound Shapes, Retro/Grade, TellTales' the walking dead. But don't expect Ubisoft to do something revolutionary. That would be like asking a major hollywood studio to create a Lars Von Trier type of movie. Go look at indies and small devs, those are the ones who'll change the face of gaming.
I dunno wasn't this here the PS4 version? http://youtu.be/8z3iG2QlJXk This vid looks pretty good.
I think this game has had so much hype and so high expectations that a some people are going to be disappointed with it regardless of the quality of the game, even if it exceeds its already high expectations there will be some idiot trying to say its rubbish. Personally i think this game will be magnificent, the idea and premise of the game intrigued me from the start, and the gameplay only drew me in further. So i doubt mediocre is the word a majority of people will describe it.
The game may not end up as garbage, but it will definitely not be a breakthrough title. And it will most likely not be a sales giant for Ubisoft like Assassin's creed. So it will "flop" by big corporate standards ala tomb raider.
Hate to agree but most likely correct.. Which is a shame :(
After 6 years of development, it better not be!!
"I’m asking Ubisoft to NOT disappoint us and make Watch Dogs the game that everyone will remember" The game is done, dude.
I've been making this point forever, I don't see the appeal to this game... What's the big deal your a hacker in gta world... WoW, amazing.... Mind you I'm a gamer who rather play rpg style games and online fighters. But I still believe ubisoft is going to be dissapointed with the sales I'm projecting 3 million tops, opening week 500,000 - 1 mil
It'll be better than Ryse or Killzone, that's for sure.
people have such high expectations nowadays
It's a TRAP !!!
