News Comments > Watch Dogs 2 in November

Looks good. I'm excited. I'll wait for some good word of mouth, but I can see myself playing this. The city looks great, and I think the main character and the dedsec angle is pretty interesting. I like his two drones, should be fun for some cool viewpoints if nothing else. Not sure how good a weapon a billiard ball on a string is... Sure, it'd hurt, but it's not an incapacitation weapon.

The driving still looked pretty awful though...

Here's hoping it'll be great!

I got it as I really, REALLY enjoyed the beta (and loved the first one as well.) Haven't played yet, since I want to finish Blood & Wine first.

SF is a fun town as a setting, so I hope they fix the absolutely abysmal looking driving (especially on motorcycles) for WD2.

That was my biggest gripe as to why I couldn't get into it. Worse driving I've playing in a game, even worse than GTA4.


I never even played it because of that. I saw a video of a motorcycle slamming into a car, and the guy just stayed seated on the bike even though he spin like 16000 times and slammed into a wall. It was retarded. It looked like Outrun back in the 90s.

The Witcher 3 is just a Hearthstone clone with a ridiculously elaborate front-end.

That's really cool of them. This isn't a company that's swimming in money, so for them to release something like this is awesome.

It also sure is purdy.

No Sleeping Dogs 2 but we are getting this shit?

They made a sleeping dogs 2, sort of. It was in open beta for awhile. Some kind of weird mp triad warfare thing. Fucking clueless gimp publishers going "hey, you know what made the first game well liked? Well, let's do exactly NOTHING like that for the second one! Oh, and make it a F2P MP game!"

To be fair, that wasn't Ubisoft that did that.

Prepare to be absolutely blown away by graphics beyond your comprehension, only to have the final game look like Spelunky.

I guess technically I should say "How Social Media Brainwashes Everybody."

But it's more prevalent with Millenials.

Also, I never said they were wrong. They're just brainwashed. They can't help it.

Scorch is very useful there. also Northern Realms has a free warhorn on siege as skill, and scoiatel can disable a hero ability. Those are leaders you gotta find but.. well, you can find them

Scorch isn't very useful if you use a strong bond deck yourself, as you're just as likely to nuke your own cards. It's just too situational. I find VillenTretenMerth to be far more useful for that purpose.

I think the "Disable hero" ability is actually a Nilfgaard leader perk, not a Scoiatel one. The entire Scoiatel deck is garbage anyway, I wouldn't be caught dead playing it.

After I played the first two Skellige decks and they pulled out the Cerys+2 warrior maidens and Cerys+3 warrior maidens trick on me, none of the others have actually ever done it. Also nice, no skellige deck player seems to play Scorch, so I just spy/strong bond them into oblivion in 2 rounds now.

In reality, the Northern Realms (not the Skellige) deck is just stupidly OP.

Edit: Fixed error.

The new Skellige deck is just kind of straight up bullshit.

Play Cerys: Horde 3 Warrior Maidens, who strong bond. Boom, one card, 58 (!!) points of damage on the fucking board. For most decks, 58 damage is a good fucking ROUND.

They should have called it the "We don't know how to program decent Gwent AI, so we just created this bullshit deck in an effort to have it be challenging." deck

Like playing against the monster deck, make sure your deck isn't full of melee cards and make sure you have at least one frostbite card.

Yeah it's not that I'm not winning against it, but it just feels cheap. Surrendering a round is a valid tactic, and having a deck just automatically play 2 cards from the graveyard "because it's round 3" is just bullshit. If the picks are lucky, the Skellige deck pulls two of your spies from his graveyard and gets FOUR cards in his hand. FOUR. How is that a perk that's even remotely comparable to

Northern Realms: Pick a card if you win a round
Monsters: One monster card stays on the table
Nilfgaard: Win a tie. (happens roughly once every 500 rounds)
Scoiatel: You may pick if you want to go first in the first round. (lol, what a bonus!!)

I mean, it's so laughably overpowered especially compared to Nilfgaard and Scoiatel.

I like some of the changes they made, such as horde cards now working on Siege and Ranged rows as well (so their entire deck can't just get ganked by a single frostbite, like the monster deck can), and some of the other things it does just seem weirdly situational, but that Cerys+Horde+Bond combo is just ludicrous. If he already has a warhorn lying on the melee row, playing Cerys would put 106(!!!!) freaking points down. WITH ONE CARD!

Edit: My math is even off, I think. Warrior Maidens are 6 each, so 3 strong bonds would make them 18 each, so 54+10=64 without warhorn or 54x2+10=118 o_O with warhorn.

That Matish dude must be realllllllllllllllllly fucking pissed that he lives in the same state the warrant was signed. Because it seems pretty likely that all the people who got charged and live in the other 49 states are going to go free.
