News Comments > Watch Dogs 2 Trailer

GTA 5 vs Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs had more ways to interact with the city, but overall the city was very meh (things to do so not as bad as Mafia 2), where GTA5 had a more 'live' city.
Story wise, GTA 5 had a more fun story that was diverse enough with the 3 characters, Watch Dogs had a revenge/penance story that never conveyed that enough for me to really care about the character (again like how I was pissed about Joe at the end of Mafia 2, or choose option 3 to not kill Mike or Trevor in gta 5).
Watch Dogs gave you more options about how to approach an objective, and made missions more dynamic.

But Watch Dogs suffers from 1st of a series'itis that Ubisoft tends to have. Assassin's Creed 1 wasn't bad, but AC2 was amazing. Far Cry 2 (I don't count Far Cry 1 as it wasn't by the same company) was pretty bleh, and Far Cry 3 was so much better. AC3 was meh but Black Flag nailed the ship parts of the game.. etc. etc.

And Cutter I had no idea where to go to get lumberjacks in San Fran, thanks for the tip, is there any other places you'd recommend to pick up guys while I'm there?

I watched about 20 mins of a 2 hour gameplay and it seems they have made quite a few improvements.

Def on my radar.

Good on you Sweden! These things are the perfect tools for criminals and pervs.

You know what else is a perfect tool for criminals and pervs? A personal computer.

Can we define perv?

I wouldn't mind having a PS4, with RDR2 and RDR1 on the Xbox One, that's the system I will end up with.

15. Re: Nintendo Switch Announced Oct 20, 2016, 13:52 The Half Elf
 
Ok so lets go back to say the NES... you had your hits (and amazing 3rd party games). Same with SNES N64, and started off strong for the GameCube, and some decent games for the Wii and Wii U.
I bought a Gamecube just for Wind Waker, played it and returned or sold the system (can't remember which). Wii and Wii U have about 2 or 3 games I would play on the system and then let it sit and collect dust.
Nintendo consoles (especially the Wii) were great for young kids, elderly and party games. But both my nephews (yeah my awesome demographic) loved the sports games on the Wii (bowling to out of the park baseball), but Daddy has a PS3 360 and a PS4, and now they are totally into the sports/driving games on the big boy consoles because they are more closer to the sports they play (they are 7 and 11 and into soccer, baseball, basketball).

And Nintendo's first party games are generally pretty good..... there isn't enough content for a gamer who grew up with Nintendo to keep going back for 1 or 2 games. And no matter how badly Nintendo is trying to market this to 20-30 somethings on the go (or that horrible e-sports part at the end), adults will stick with a tablet, smart phone or laptop. Why would I want to carry around another device, especially one with detachable parts (and you thought loosing a 3DS stylus was bad)?
They are creating a market that's half-way between mobile 3DS and full blown console like the big boys but not hitting the mark.

It wasn't bad, but it was fucking repeitive as hell to the point I never finished it. Also heard the ending was bad.

Looks like yet another underpowered console (that finally gets Skyrim, and does it get mods?).

Dear Nintendo.
Keep your mobile gaming market. Kill off your consoles and start making your awesome IP's for other systems/pc's.

Portable Skyrim (which version the original or the latest), does it have mods? (probably not).

He didn't eat a pepper, he ate pepper puree put on a burger. It wasn't so much the pepper (read the article) but all hard core vomiting he did after eating it.

Watched the first 5 Luke Cage eps. Diggin it.

I enjoyed it, buut damn was it slow to build up for me.

That's been my gripe as well. I think I'm about 6 episodes in, and it's finally starting to pickup speed. I was expecting something a little closer to Daredevil, with ass beatings right off the bat.

Also, the musical guest of the week routine is getting a little old...


I like the show, I just feel things could have been executed a little better. Pacing is an issue for sure, but I feel like they struggle with keeping things threatening enough given his powers. Spoilers: Even when Diamondback shoots him with the magic alien bullet and the whole ensuing fight scene. Cage should have been running for his life, but instead he goes after him and either the gun malfunctions at a critical moment or Diamondback misses an easy shot. And even in his pain/weakened state Cage should have been able to knock Diamondback out with one hit when he got his hands on him. Anyways As I said I like it, but there's a few things that keep me from loving it.
I had a few issues with Cage and shit just being made up on the fly to push the story Spoilers: Like the Sister Cousin who is all about rebuilding harlem looses 7 million dollars from her office and everyone knows it, just so happens to have access to Judas bullets to offer City Hall to take down Cage, WHO THE FUCK IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD THINK IT'S OK FOR THIS BITCH TO JUST SHOW UP AND IS RUNNING FOR CITY COUNCIL BUT ALSO IS A WEAPONS/AMMO DEALER!?!

Is buying up bankrupted IPs and slapping "xXx Edition" on them before reselling them a lucrative business practice? Guess it's easier than making your own game.

It seems to be. Everyone and their mom are doing remakes now.

Yet the one game that I really want remade (Mass Effect) isn't getting one because of some imbecile at EA.

Except Red Dead Redemption *sniffles*

I must be missing something obvious and asking a dumb question here but why do VR games require a VR headset? Doesn't it just give the perception of 3D. It's not like a room isn't a room, in a VR game. It seems more like deciding whether you want speakers or headphones, the game will still play.

Remember all the shitty Kinect games? Yup, that's why.

Don't announce shit, especially on your forums. SHOW ME SOMETHING, and post it on the front page of your website. Not Facebook, not Twitter, and not your forums.
