Current Digital writer Brian White examines ways the upcoming Watch Dogs 2 can improve from it's predecessor.
Really good article. I especially like the bit about the morality and bank accounts
Does anybody think Watch Dogs 2 will look better, worse, or match the WD1 prototype of 2012?
Not as good as the prototype. Those areas are rendered and take up alot of resources, that simply can't be replicated throughout the game. It will look better than wd1 for sure, though to what extent is a guess. I'm not a big ubisoft fan, but wd1 was okay.
I....I just don't even get what type of question that is. Consider that Watch Dogs 2 will be next gen only from the ground up, by default it will look better then Watch Dogs 1... Mind you, I think it will look good not based on dropping last gen support, merely based on exclusively making a next gen version separately from a last gen version, ie have another team make WD2 on the last gen engine if feasible on PS3 and 360 to bank and have a PS4, XONE and PC version that uses a different more demanding engine.
I love Watch Dogs. It has a completely different feel to Gta, enough to own both. In fact, I'm considering buying it again. Really looking forward to WD2
It's now $20 most places
Yea, from what I've read, it sounds like a fun once over. I'll likely get it used later down the line.
Maybe this time it will look like the Reveal trailer for the first game.
It was a good game the open world was just mediocre, and other than a few NPCs doing rap battles it failed to capture that gritty Chicago vibe.
I think most people are just mad because of all of Screwbisofts, I mean, Ubisofts lies with WD1. False advertisement was everywhere, the 1080p 60fps promise was switched to 900p 30fps, including pc. WD1 and AC Unity pulled out the sucker card and almost everyone bit into it. On the lighter note I did enjoy Wd1's story, even platinumed it. I just don't like being lied to, thats all.
Ditch aiden, tighten up the driving, improve the graphics. The biggest problem with the first one was that the character was in the wrong, deserved his fate and his revenge mission was completely unjustified, and the fact he was completely unlikeable anyway
Well, a little girl was killed, so I would argue as far as revenge motive goes it's good enough. But all of the characters all felt really flat to me. I liked when you met T-Bone and he kicks your ass, that was kind of cool. And occasionally the stealth moments clicked for me, gameplay wise(the gang hideouts). The final few missions were just awful to me, though. It has potential, I think.
Tighten up the driving? The driving was like an arcade sim.
It can always get better by not realasing it
They have so much work to do selling a sequel... No matter what they show initially gameplay wise will be met with 100% scrutiny and doubt. Downgrade jokes will run amuck. Not to mention they have an uphill battle trying to distance themselves from GTA anyway. Good luck Ubisoft but this game needs more of an identity other than 'press square to hack'. Edit: Oh, who am I kidding? First one sold like crazy and adding a '2' at the end will only sell more. I don't know why I bother.
Being cancelled would help.
Give it the 12 extra months of development that WD1 needed and everything should be fine. Oh, and enough of the downgrades, thanks.
wd had alot weaks talking about gameplay, the hacking minigames was so simple and repetitive i'm saying.. come on, you are a hacker and their hacking minigames are this weak spot that i said, they have now plenty space to improvements, we don't need stupid drink minigame or minigames gta like, just give us a whole new perspective of hacking gameplay and hacking mechanics
Current gen only plz!
I played a bit of the first game and enjoyed it so far. It may not be a masterpiece, but it's been fun so far. With that being said, I welcome a sequel.
The article mentions about more hacking. I'm not sure this would be the best solution. With Watch Dogs there was already enough button prompts and pop-ups on the screen that more would just make Watch Dogs a virtual Ubisoft Map with all icons blazing.
I have yet to play this but all i know is i haven't seen a single person properly criticize it. Saying GTA 5 is better is not criticism, its a silly excuse
