Screens and videos I've seen already look good. Still have an extra BB preorder code, I'm looking to unload. Would prefer to trade for another.

I've been watching some people who have it early stream it on the Live from Playstation channel on the PS4.  Looks pretty good from what I've seen.

Anyone know when the review embargo lifts? Not that I take reviews as a deciding factor but the question still remains for me. Is this GTA level of quality or not?  This of the past two years has been my most anticipated game.

probably monday night in terms of reviews. this game does not have the gta level of detail/customization from all the walkthrough videos i saw. it is a bit more linear, and less freedom

Someone was calling it GTA on steroids but the hype machine is real.  I'm realistically expecting a fun outing with this game, but not flawless.  Ubisoft has cornered the market on repetitive gameplay, afterall.

Yeah, the hype machine is huge. That's why I wonder. I am expecting a great time, and hopefully this doesn't turn into a ton of backtracking/collectable crap like Assassin's Creed IV got into.

Oh it will.  Every game they produce anymore in action adventure is the same formula: AC, FarCry, and now Watch Dogs.

 

Same game, different wrapper.

It is Frag watched a stream for a bit and that was all the guy was doing was collectable stuff.

I think that was ign. I watched that review it was basically a commercial. I don'think this game will be as good as gta. Gta could easily do everything that watch Dogs does.

Watching some recent gameplay videos of this game, it's looking like a half baked version of GTA.

 

 

 

Honestly after seeing how the driving mechanics look in motion, I'm more excited for a next gen port of GTA V. 

 

Hopefully that comes in June because the PS4 desperately needs a AAA title in its library.

I think it will be a good game no doubt about that however I think it is extremely overhyped and will definitely wait for a nice price drop when I finish AC4 and probably Wolf and have nothing else of interest then I will probably pick it up. Howver with the Destiny Beta in the coming Month I am hard pressed to pick up another open world game.

I immediately canceled my pre-order and went back to play GTA IV. Thanks for helping me avoid the worst mistake of my life. No damage on the wall from my car? Fuck off, Ubisoft. That's the whole reason I buy these games. How they would expect me to tolerate a game where water from the fire hydrant goes through my car is beyond me.

Reviews coming out. Looks like it'll averageo ut to low 80s high 70s on metacritic

 

Edit:

 

Metacritic 30 reviews averaged out to 82. Not bad

Canceling my pre-order later this week (when I have time) and moving it to the DIablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition for PS4. This game reminds me of GTA 5 too much and that game was just way too disappointing. Plus, I've been wanting Diablo for quite some time but my laptop won't do it justice and I traded in my PS3 towards a PS4. August can't get here soon enough :)

I'll probably skip this, maybe give it a go if I end up giving Gamefly a try. I don't tend to like GTA type games.

Just got mine from Amazon. Seems like modern day Assassins Creed/Splinter Cell/Sleeping Dogs hybrid just like I figured it would be.

So what's up with uPlay? I know it's down but what is the status in Watch Dogs. Need to know what's up for when I get my game tonight.

I'm liking it so far. Pretty damn neat with all the stuff you can hack. Spending points on your skill tree allows you to hack even more things such as garage doors, gates, bridges, etc etc. Gameplay has been smooth, and the graphics are pretty nice. Haven't played online yet, so I can't say how that part of it is.
