IGN Live: Watch Dogs Demo - E3 2012

"An in-depth look at perhaps E3 2012's biggest surprise game!"

negroguy4125d ago

Didn't know anything about this game, but it looks damn good. Will probably get this one on PC.

joab7774125d ago

I am thinking this has to b next Gen. The scope is unbelievable if it comes off like they are portraying. This is also very promising. It is good looking but imagine a city in which all those ppl have stories and can be hacked. Maybe this could b made now, but in an open world setting? I'd hate the gap between PC and consoles to b huge so I am hoping its a launch title next November.

RXL4125d ago

this was running on a high end pc..

WeskerChildReborned4125d ago

Yea i was thinking the same thing watching the demo when you could see reflections off the wet floor and stuff like that.

Premonition4125d ago

Just confirmed today it will be on PC PS3 and Xbox360 and possibly Wii U, but for now its for all 3 systems

joab7774120d ago

Yeah, that is definitely next Gen. I know these are running on PC just like unreal engine 4 but there r plenty of games to close out this Gen. Please do not try and put these games on this Gen with a huge difference between PC and console. Even on PC, u would have to run high settings to get the best benefit. Just wait and launch with them.

The city they show in this game is what I expect from next gen consoles years ago and in particular GTA4.

Living breathing city life as oppose to GTA4.

You are getting fooled by some clever scripting in closed cinematic sequences.

LastDance4125d ago (Edited 4125d ago )

The thought crossed my mind, and you may be correct about certain sequences however I am not talking about any particular moment that looked/was scripted.

At the beginning, walking through the street - it was living and breathing. So you're point doesn't detract from my statement as i am not talking about any part of any 'event' or 'sequence'.

If you strip away the art exhibition within the street at the beginning - take note of the bystanders. Light years ahead of any open-world game.

It reminded me of Heavy Rains work but it's not linear like HR.

acemonkey4125d ago

in the interview he saids ps3 and xbox 360...and if its right other next gens....i believe thats what he said so we see

josephayal4125d ago

Obviously, this was run on a XBOX 360, The demo was played on stage using an Xbox 360 controller

Put down the Kool-Aid and back away slowly. The people in white coats will be here to help you. Try to stay calm... *shoots tranq dart*

Watch Dogs Deserves A Remake, More Than Ever

With the world of information and technology, privacy and security growing every day, Watch Dogs deserves another chance in the spotlight, now more than ever.

RaidenBlack786d ago

The only Ubi title that deserves a faithful remake right now is Splinter Cell 1.
All 2014+ Ubi titles are just underwhelming. Especially ones from 2016+ are just cancer.

LucasRuinedChildhood786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

Seriously, are we so far removed from Ubisoft actually making good games that people now praise Watch_Dogs in retrospect?

"Watch_Dogs has remained one of my favourite games of the last ten years." Jesus Christ.

HankHill786d ago

I remember being so disappointed in Watch Dogs when I played it at release. It was alright, but I think I fell for the hype and I needed a game to play on my new PS4.

obidanshinobi786d ago

This is what happens when mediocrity gets praised as good.
Standards are slipping across the whole entertainment industry.
What was once considering rubbish is now considered as OK, what once was OK is now being praised as good etc etc.

LamerTamer786d ago

Everyone has their own likes. I liked it a lot myself. I played through it twice and liked the car chases and the open world with fairly decent environments and missions. It suffered from the whole downgrade thing where they showed graphics that weren't actually there. No game will appeal to everyone but it was still ambitious for it's time.

assassin's creed 1 should get a remake.

ExBee786d ago

For certain! AC1 was brilliant at the time but with new graphics and gameplay it would be amazing! Do you prefer old combat or new though?

RaidenBlack786d ago

I'd say a reimagining of AC1.
I direct AC1 remake would be a bad idea. It'll need better story pacing and significant better world building.

BlaqMagiq1786d ago

Old. Let it play like how it did with AC2-Syndicate style gameplay but refine the setting and story.
