Watch Dogs PC Graphics

The GeForce website offers a new video from Watch Dogs showing off the graphics from the Windows edition of Watch Dogs, also demonstrating some of the enhancements NVIDIA graphics cards will bring to the game. Word is: "In May, Watch Dogs finally goes on sale, and today we’re giving you a first-look at the PC version, which features amongst other things, NVIDIA HBAO+, and NVIDIA TXAA Anti-Aliasing. We’ll be examining these effects and the game itself in greater detail in the coming weeks, but in the meantime sit back and enjoy your first look at the definitive PC edition of Watch Dogs."

Plays 2 seconds, streaming, plays 2 secs, streaming, well fuck you... why cant people just use youtube!

I paused it for 5m to let it load. The video quality of the Nvidia site is easily 4x youtube. That video looked spectacular. It was worth the wait, and would have been riddled with artifacts on youtube.
Eh, it looked like lipstick on a pig. The textures and the models are still something to be concerned about. I really dont think its going to be anything amazing.

Also that the game's direction seems to have done a 180? Remember when they said "no real storyline"?

They've been pretty clear from the beginning that the game has a story, even going as far as giving you a major story sequence in the E3 trailer. If you're wrong about this then you might be wrong about other things regarding this game too, maybe worth a revisit to see if it changes your mind.

......Not sure why I have it stuck in my head that they said it wasn't direct and linear - but just googled and found an article from a year ago that said it was linear...damn......

its just another one of those games that has an open world tacked on to it.. its a GTA style thing

It's Hacker's Creed. Of course it has a storyline.

We need to really start holding people accountable to their "This game is going to suck!" and "This game is going to be awesome!" predictions. Especially the people who are traditionally incapable of admitting they were wrong.
Given that Suckage and Ownage are in the eye of the beholder, I don't see how this would work.

Oh and it just occurred to me, Rockstar doesn't do a lot of playable games at trade shows. In fact Ubisoft isn't exactly known for them but ships a lot of quality titles too. I don't see what about this game is a 'scam'. I'm not ready to buy it until I see some reviews but nothing about it says 'scam'.

It looks very sweet, however, the HBAO and TXAA in AC4 came at a substantial performance hit for me. (I think it was around 30%...)

(Edit: Said FXAA instead of TXAA)

Well the joke is on me then I guess, well done

Not really trolling. How come a game that was supposed to be done 6+ months ago isn't playable at PAX today!? The game is supposed to ship in less than 30 days. WTF!? Why wouldn't you have people playing the game?

Its a scam. Game is going to blow.

OK, Cutter!


What, you guys don't have issue with a game that should be "gold" (ships in a month) that isn't playable at a gaming convention?

Not really unusual. Most games are not playable at conventions. Hell, many come out when convention season isn't even going. But what does it matter anyway? Wait until full game is released, read reviews from reviewers I trust, buy accordingly.

People at a convention waiting in line for 2 hours to play something are probably pretty fucking invested already and aren't going to give you a good unbiased opinion.

just sayin.....

So what Ubisoft is saying AMD users shouldn't bother with this game then. Ok, Ubisoft, no sale in that case.

You have an AMD? Figures. lol

I love the looks of this game and the idea behind it. Now it's all about the gameplay, and that's where I will sit and wait what you early buyers will tell us about it.  
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Wait for the garage module! Should be ready in 2017.
