That’s was the feeling for 2
There was nothing wrong with 2 except the cheesy, Americanised cliches. It was cringe but the gameplay itself was a million times better than the first game and a lot smoother. From what I've seen from WD:L it's going down the Saints Row 3 route of being silly which makes it a no from me.
"It was cringe"? Man, that makes me anger and sadness at the same time. A minute ago I was happiness, but now I'm annoy
I dont trust Ubisoft at all anymore especially after Far Cry 5 & the terrible remaster of AC3. So Ubisoft can count me out of any game they make.
I bought Assassin's Creed III and Watch Dogs day one. Worse purchases of my life. They're not very good at games tbh. Feels like they treat games like products, unlike game from Sony, which you can feel the love of the devs when they talk about their games, like Cory Barlog and Bryan Intihar for example.
You mean naughty dog, santa monica ,etc etc
@AcidDvl Spot on m8, Ubisoft process their games whereas Naughty Dog craft their games.
Watch Dogs I also bought Day 1. Definitely the worst game I've bought this generation. After that I haven't touched Ubisoft games (I did try out the Division and wasn't thrilled there either). Plenty of better games to play than their garbage
Just another rinse and repeat game. I'll give it a miss.
I thought 2 was fine, by the time its stealth arenas got repetitive it was close to being over
This game gives me the Saints Row over the top vibe for some reason. Maybe it's the flying drones that you stand on while wearing a pig mask. Idk, I wish it wasn't future based and was more serious\realistic.
But will Ubisoft actually do more about those abuse allegations it’s been trying to bury?
I think we both know that they will try to bury them so deep that the core of the earth will burn them Sad part is they will probably succeed.
A bunch of people have already been fired, so there's hope.
Neither are boring.
But Watch Dogs 2 is cool.
Please please please don’t fall for Ubishit in 2020. Let’s put their company in the ground. Maybe someone who likes games will swoop in and buy it. Sad to see such amazing concepts be dragged down by poor graphics, mediocre gameplay, and terrible story telling.
It's ironic considering the only games that get attention from people after all these years are their non cookie cutter games like Siege and For Honor. Something happened after Far Cry 2 and AC2 and they just went balls deep in reusing those formulas with refinements over the years. Glad to see it broke them last year.
Its because the "cookie cutter" games sell. Look at the likes of Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, Far Cry and to a lesser extent Battlefield. We all moan and complain about these "rinse and repeat" games being released every other year, but they sell and sell really well. Its the same with Hollywood, at the moment we are in a "super Heroes" bubble and for me I'm done with the whole Marvel Studios movies craze, they are all the same, no real surprises, just regurgitate the same old hacked story so people can shovel popcorn in their faces.
They sell well but only around launch because of brand and presentation. They quickly shoot down in price not even a month after launch, and they are designed to be fast and loose with sales. Not even Joking but I saw AC Odyessy for $20 not even 2 months after launch, and they were giving away Division 2 for literally $2 2 months back, just so they could sell people the expansion and expose them to the MTs it's riddled with. The retention rate for their games is like butter in a frying pan.
To be fair, The Division 2 was released back in March 2019, so it doesn't surprise me they are virtually giving it away to try and tempt people into buying the DLC.
Looking at its latest trailer it looks uninteresting to me.
Hopefully it doesn't have stupid hipster wannabes from the 2nd game. I was enjoying the 2nd one, till the cast of characters did my head in that I just couldn't bear listening to them anymore.
Loved both Watch Dogs games. I think the first was just over-hyped a bit. I think a lot of people who haven't played the second game would be impressed by how much it's improved. Happy they delayed Legion to make sure it was better, looks great.
Look forward to playing this upgraded on PS5. I think there will be a series of basic character types who repeat a lot, then rarer characters with deeper personalities and abilities. Almost like common/uncommon/rare/epic loot systems.
Ye, I remember listening to a podcast a few weeks back where they interviewed one of the dev team and he said that all the different character's would be unique. I initialy though that would be cool, but after thinking about it I came to the same conclusion as you, itll look like everyone is different, but in actuality there may only be 20 or 30 different character types.
I am really looking forward to this one, WD2 was one of my first platinums and I enjoyed every minute of it. Sure, I did not really like the hipster setting, but it felt much more "real" than the dark setting from the first one. The game really seems to be the most ambitious game Ubisoft has made in the recent years, I sincerely hope they can deliver. Very likely day one for me.
