Watch Dogs Discussion
Just saw a video about Watch Dogs and misleading game trailers. Gist of it was Watch Dogs actual gaming is something less than the Trailers released for E3 and such, and the point he made was, it's much like Colonial Marines. The Trailers are much better than the actual game. That would be hugely disappointing if so. Look here -

AND, in another video they were saying the multiplayers will be able to drop into the single players games. Shades of Dark Souls 2 and more VAC problems? WTF.
I'm not liking this mixing of the two gaming styles, it's pizzin me off. That and the tendancy of publishers to release fantastic trailers of games then the subsequent gameplay is dumbed down and doesn't quite add up to the hype and promise.
Glad I didn't pre-purchase either one now, WD or DS2.
Glad to hear that, we don't need another Colonial Marines fiasco. How about the multiplayer mixing with single?
About the graphics. The E3 trailer was before the new consoles went public. That was a time where nobody knows what power the consoles have (or not have). So after the consoles were announced, the reduced the graphics. But recently there was also a trainer by Nvidia showing the full PC graphics.
Personally I think Watch Dogs will be a great game but somehow it will be also disappointing. Not because of the graphics or anything like that. Nobody except Rockstar Games have managed to create an open world title that makes fun outside of the story. And this will be the biggest weakness of Watch Dogs.
The hacking elements will become boring soon. As they make only sense if you use them in a specific context. For example to eliminate your opponents or break into something. Instead hacking into civilian bank account's or reading their messages is a thing you'll drop after one or two hours.
We will see when the game comes out.
I agree on your statement with the fun outside of story, but they have actually addressed that. Random events will occur around, if you play enough and such, yeah it will become boring because you will have tried mostly all. But there will be plenty to explore, a lot of random things generated around, some not so random because it's cause of something you did elsewhere, but they did good. And yes multiplayer is possible to disable entirely, anti-cheat. I can't say for sure there.
No, there is no buy-in-beta. Me and a handful of my colleagues got to try out the game.
