Yep. Hoping it's (at least a little bit) everything GTA wasn't.

I guess I'll pick it up eventually. I don't want to buy it for the current gen though. Unless the reviews make me change my mind. =D

Probably will end up buying it for PC. There's a ton of listings for codes for ~$35. I think it should be worth it at that price. Just hope it isn't a big fail.

Ubisoft games are notorious for dropping in price 30-90 days after launch date.

I'm excited for this game but not $65 excited especially with the playoffs going on

I love Conan and his Clueless Gamer reviews.

So the reviews are coming in from people playing it and they are saying it has failed to live up to the hype. Been looking at game play videos and it does not look good at all, and this is PC game play too where supposedly Ubisoft and Nvidia were working together to make it good. hmm.

Probably just wait until it hit's the $10 price in a few months then to pick it up.

No where near a perfect 10 like GTAV but a decent enough score.

IGN - 8.4

Looks like I'll definitely wait on this one for next gen and hopefully they'll drop the price by that time like you mentioned JGON.

Only played the tutorial mission, and it seems pretty fun. The graphics look just fine. I swear people have the most unrealistic expectations for graphics. Looking forward to playing some more tomorrow.

Thanks! Hope to hear more updates from ya. Graphics is what it is. People don't really know what they're talking about. It's all about the game play, story, and of course... fun factor.

i saw this in internet, might make graphics more high quality, did not try as i didn't buy the game, but if anyone see it works, let us others know.

NEWS FOR PC PLAYERS GETTING THIS GAME!! LOOKS LIKE UBISOFT FORGOT TO CHANGE SOMETHING WHEN THEY PORTED THE ORIGINAL CODE TO CONSOLES: When you get the game do this:

Docs > My Games > Watchdogs > xxxx

GamerProfile.xml

and found this line

DeferredFxQuality="console"

Changed to: DeferredFxQuality="pc"

<CustomQuality> <quality ResolutionX="1920" ResolutionY="1080" EnvironmentQuality="ultra" AntiPortalQuality="pc" PostFxQuality="ultra" TextureQuality="pc" TextureResolutionQuality="high" WaterQuality="ultra" ParaboloidReflectionQuality="ultra" DepthPassQuality="pc" VegetationQuality="ultra" TerrainQuality="ultra" GeometryQuality="ultra" LodDitheringQuality="pc" ShadowQuality="ultra" ShadingQuality="high" RoadQuality="pc" EditorQuality="pc" ParticlesQuality="ultra" DeferredFxQuality="pc" HDR="1" SuperSampling="0" HighPrecisionNormal="1" RenderSplashes="1" RenderRain="1" MotionBlurQuality="pc" SSAOQuality="hbao+_high" DepthOfFieldQuality="pc" AntiAliasingQuality="temporalsmaa" id="_runtime" /> </CustomQuality>

Also Nvidia released new drivers just for this game, optimized for it, recommended to get.

I think the anger isn't so much the graphics as it was the developer kept promising the graphics weren't changed from the E3 demo and it was exactly that.

Which is why nobody should ever believe any thing that says "In Game footage" at E3.

I think most people on PC are complaining because of how broken the gameplay is and how it repeats itself, but not much on the graphics...kinda. However I still think I'm going to wait until they release a couple updates before giving my final judgement on the game, since it would be stupid to do so without playing it.

But I need some sort of GTA style game for my PC since my damn 360 won't let me play GTA online anymore only NHL. sigh /rant

What da hayell, Shaddy? Banned from GTA Online?

yeah for being too legit...But naw there's something wrong with either my account or xbox+router because when I try to connect to GTA online it says a message like "Could not connect to the server". And IF i do connect to a session I'll get signed out and get a error message. So I quite it. Only use my 360 for NHl14 now.

The story is ok. I can see why people don't like the main guy, he's not an interesting character. Gameplay is fine, think gta meets assassins creed. The best things are the online play. The missions where you "invade" another players games are really fun. There are 2 kinds, hacking and trailing. Hacking is where you have to install the backdoor on their phone(which is hard to get it done). Trailing is where you just scan them and stay in a line of sight for a period of time to observe them hoping they dont scan and and kill you.
I have caught a couple people trailing me, and its super fun gunning them down. Had an epic car chase with someone who caught me trailing them.
Overall I would give it a 8.5
