Watch Dogs 2: Rise of the Hipsters

I guess they changed the main guy though, I always thought in the leaked image he was Asian...now he's black. Kind of an improvement overall design wise with the outfit. More unique looking

I feel like the new location doesn't really suit the game. Hope they didn't just rip stuff from Driver: San Francisco

Kingthrash3602956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

Lol what?
...I thought I lt was a chick.....tho
Doesn't matter at all to me just be a good game is all I ask. Could be a green alien chick with a great ass and a Australian accent for all I care.

-Foxtrot2956d ago

How is that racist. Don't say you are one of those guys who say something is racist for the sake of it

If the character leaked was white and I said "Oh he's now black...kind of an improvment" would that be racist? Of course not because it's double standards

The leaked character looked like one of those douchey Asian hipsters you see with the big glasses and that. That's not racist, it's just how people see it, hell I saw people saying the same type of things on here.

Not about his skin colour...I was talking about his overall design appeal.

Don't wear out the racist term because it's the reason why when real racist stuff happens people don't bat an eye lid and think you are just over using the term again

LucasRuinedChildhood2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

To be fair, you just said that a black character instead of an Asian character is an improvement, and that's literally racist. If there was the white->black transition and you said the same thing, it would also be racist (no double standard with me). Your problem being that the character had a specific kind of style and attitude that you didn't like is fine, but that's not what you said nor did you imply it. But whatever, no big deal.

Note: -Foxtrot edited his comment after arguing with Kingthrash360 - he didn't originally mention the overall design, and then he told me that I need to read his comment properly after he altered it. [Facepalm].

naruga2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

i said it again the art/design team of Ubisoft are completely uninspired guys...i m completely repelled by the aesthetics/theme /general concept .. ...incoming flop

"To be fair, you just said that a black character instead of an Asian character is an improvement"


Read the comment properly...Jeez


Lucas is lying. Please ignore him. He's made himself look silly and he's trying to switch it around

There is an edit but to fix a spelling mistake

Even my other comments after the first one, which I said straight away said exactly the same thing so you obviously didn't look properly

LucasRuinedChildhood2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

Are you actually serious? I did read your comment, but you changed it (I was watching the video instead of moaning about the game, and didn't refresh the page). Now you're pretending that you didn't say what you said (you edited the comment 20 min later and completely altered it) - If you believed what you wrote originally was without fault, you wouldn't do that.

"...Jeez," it's sad that you're bothered LYING about something like that.

Kingthrash3602956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

Naw Im not "that" type of guy that's why I laughed ot off...it's just reading it it looked mildly racist is all...relax, if you ment design then you should edit your comment and make it clear. Also why include the race to begin with...just say you like the character design better...black, white, as a in is irrelevant. I don't think you are a racist bro...just your comment looked a tad racist is all.
I see you did edit it and made it clear so I'll edit mine too

Erik73572956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )


it actually is racist both ways but the whole saying it being changed to a black character is a improvement " Is the type of racism no social justice warriors will attack you on because it's not like a minority could be racist right?righttttt? - social justice warrior logic

All ethnic groups have racist people in them.

Say whatever you want who cares if society scolds you for it, majority of people are sheep and stupid.

I think the entire art design of this sequel is inferior to the first.

What is more sad though is the fact that you can say that changing from one race to another is an improvement. Had you switched the races around in that statement it would be "racist".

In any case it is unlikely that I will be buying this sequel, or any other Ubisoft titles in the future as they lack any creativity that they once had.

Edit: You are getting hit for that comment harder than I thought you would, I won't report you or anything it was just my opinion. I am not an SJW so don't worry. I was just pointing something out. And yes I agree about the hipster, it screams Starbucks hipster looser and that probably is the case because that is what Ubisofts development teams are composed of.

-Foxtrot2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

Well like I said above it was more on the overall design not because of the race switch.

A black guy with that design looks better then the Asian one we saw a while back.

That's just my personal opinion and like I said it goes off the overall design, not the persons skin colour. I just think it's more different and unique this way.

starchild2956d ago

How does this lack creativity? And which games do you like? Which games do you think are creative?

Aloy-Boyfriend2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )


He looks more than a tech nerd, which suits the game concept very well

Pogmathoin2956d ago

Foxtrot said kind of an improvement overall design wise!!!! Where do you get a racial tone from that??? Sweet jesus, this place going hardcore PC too? (Political Correctness!)

LucasRuinedChildhood2956d ago

No, he edited his comment after arguing with Kingthrash360. Originally, there was no mention of the overall design.

Pogmathoin2956d ago

Fair enough, but it is possible overall design is what he still meant, and seeing as how any word these days can be seen as a possible racist comment, he felt the need to change it. I have seen Foxtrot here for years, argued many times, but never seen him as a racist, nor ever seen any comment even close to suggest it.....

LucasRuinedChildhood2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

I believe that is what actually Foxtrot meant (I don't think he's racist at all), but it was unclear because he didn't mention the overall design or anything. It was just him saying that the Asian to black transition was an improvement, without any context. That's why Kingthrash360 even brought it up. I was being fair to him. Now, he's changed it, and I'm really pissed off that he has the nerve to call me a liar. Ugh.

Pogmathoin2956d ago

Regardless, this particular thread should die.... He never meant it, worded it wrong, then fingers started to wag..... move on....

I like it how the character is coming from experience with a lot of stereotypes which everyone does in a way but the stereotypes he goes through are being a criminal, being stupid , or being poor which I thinks adds way more to a character in the game than ths Asian guy they originally leaked because let's be honest it would be cliche as fuck if it was Asian, a hacker, and in California LOL.

I wonder how characters will interact with this character, will we see racism ? If it's so "raw,real,and balablabl" whatever one of the guys said it would be crazy to see that in a game happen, very taboo and avoided in our society. No one really likes to address racism but it would be interesting to see it happen in a modern society in a game because it actually does happen right now in our society sometimes.

Mr-Dude2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

I think the characters look like Ubi couldn't decide which stereotypical 'rebel' to go with so they went with a weird amalgamation.

I think they have the opportunity to tell an interesting story if they lean into the class warfare/income inequality issues surrounding SF and Silicon Valley companies though.

The cover looks like it should be the cover to a Tony Hawk game though. It's all kind of weird. Little douchebag...

I like how it's a black guy. Games looks decent. But so did part 1

TacticProductionz2956d ago

Ok....moving on to the next game.

DeadlyOreo2956d ago

Good for you. I'll be enjoying this one.

pompombrum2956d ago

Looks somewhat good, as long as they don't try too hard to make the game a teenage anonymous fan's wet dream and end up alienating older gamers, it'll be good. Looks better than the initial leaked trailer lead me to believe anyway which is great news.

AtariFanboy2956d ago

I liked it. Seemed to improve on gameplay alot. The graphics looked on par with Syndicate and Division, so i doubt there will be downgrade this time.

annoyedgamer2956d ago

Those were all downgraded.
