Every week the 1985FM staff discuss one topic that’s been making the rounds in gaming news. Each editor weighs in their opinion.
I wouldn't be thrilled if I bought Watch_Dogs day 1. It is an important lesson that sometimes it is better to rent before buying.
Well on PC I can't really rent. =P
PC is also graphically the best version. With mods you can make that version look as it did at E3. Everyone else got something that looks subpar in comparison.
That is true. There is no legal way to rent on PC :)
@rando I have it for PC and PS4. It's a shame on PC. It stutters all the time and feels really laggy. Screw the mods or ultra-setting if the game runs like crap. I'm trying to complete it on PS4 now. I will buy my new games mostly for PS4 in the future because I dont want to wait weeks for updated and drivers while the console players already completeted it and move to the next game. Only good PC ports will be bought now. Im sick of buying a game and waiting 2 month till it's playable.
I've rented. I do not trust Ubisoft since Assassin's creed 1. New Ubisoft IP usually lack of content and redundant gameplay. But usually improves with subsequent release.
It's all well and good having the ability to mod it and make it look better than the infamous E3 demonstration video - but if the game itself is a chore to play and just not worth your time, it's a moot point. Even if the games visuals hadn't have been downgraded, it would have still been a lackluster game. People are focusing too much on the visuals. We should be more upset at just how bland and unexciting the actual game is.
why? i enjoyed it and didnt have one glitch or bug that i noticed on ps4. i got it on day1
There was plenty of footage and screenshots that showed the what the game really looked like as the release date neared. So I wasn't surprised by what it looked like when it did come out. Of course if I did only see that 2012 demo, then I would have been majorly disappointed. But who goes by one video from 2 years ago when they buy a game? I bought the game day one, played the heck out of it for a month, then I beat it and traded it in for 42.50 at Gamestop. Not a bad game for $17.50! I did truly enjoy Watch Dogs though. Can't wait for the sequel.
No way you got 42.50 at Gamestop. Bull.
They have a deal going on right now. Check their website. Trade in Watch_Dogs before the 26th of this month and you get a guaranteed $40 in store credit. He probably got a bit more for being a PowerUp member.
Yeah, what ThatEnglishDude said. They guarantee at least 40 dollars for Watch Dogs until the 26th with a promo they're running. Of course, most games probably don't get this promo so I may not be able to do it again with future games!
Ubisoft Kings of Consolization
This game i was so hyper about. Was so chocked about the story. They did actually delayed the game and it was in development for 5-7 years and the story was only 8-10 hours?. Lazy ass developers. Look the witcher 3. over 100 hours of gameplay PURE. If im going to be honest i Think Jonathan morin though of cancel Watch dogs. But ofc he is a gold digger pure.
Only thing I'm angry about is the Social Lubricant trophy on PS4.......😵😵
Angry? about what? A million side missions that repeat endlessly? Main character that has the personality of toast? Car driving mechanics that are circa 1983? That the game should have been called Puzzle Dogs cause that's what you do in this game. That the game is more passive than walking your grandma to the candy store on breezy Sunday afternoon? No, I'm not angry at all. I applaud Ubisoft. They have a fantastic marketing team and they should all get raises. The only thing I wonder is W.T.F. was the delay about? Implementing a crippled MP component or a dumb app. I cant figure which.
people spend too much time looking for reasons to complain about games rather than actually enjoying them. i thought watch dogs was a good game, not the best, but it was definitely worth the buy.
I didn't even plan on buying this game but picked it up a couple of weeks ago on a whim and totally cracked out on it.
yeah exactly, idk what these people are talking about saying the game only lasted them 10 hrs. they mustve rushed through the game or something. i picked it up day one and just finished the story a few days ago, and I'm still only around 60% for the entire game.
hell yah I should be furious from ubisoft scams every game they release there is a scams behind it and mark my words guys games such as the division,far cry 4 they will be a huge disappointed from visual perspective there will be a massive DOWNGRADE just wait to see it...and Watch Dogs what I can see game with high hype transferred to FLOOOOOP
I also think it's a good game. Not sure why everyone complains...now what exactly are we missing from "the original concepts" from 2 years ago? Abilities? Visuals? Really how is this structure any different than Red Dead or GTA, etc? If your not 100% sure, you rent. Gamers should know better by now. No one to blame but yourselves.
I am actually enjoying the game...
It's a really, really good game..........
