Watch_Dogs Giveaway Joins ACIV: Black Flag and World in Conflict Freebies

Ubisoft has revived their Watch_Dogs giveaway for those who missed out on their chance to get the open-world action game for free last month. The free offer runs until December 23rd, sitting alongside their previously announced Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag giveaway and World in Conflict giveaway. Taking advantage of any or all of these offers will require a Uplay account.

Maybe the 3rd game will not have us play a mass murdering terrorist nobody in any way sane can ever connect to. Wouldn't that be something....

;p

Of course, I dunno if that was intentional by Ubisoft to basically sabotage their entire plot this way in WD2, or if that was an accident.. But when behavior analysis flags him as a terrorist, then he becomes one after discovering this.... just.. wow. Tone deaf doesn't even begin to describe this plot..

At least in WD1, we played a genuine asshole, can get behind that. But in WD2 we play a terrorist, and I can't get behind that. Must be me

I've seen this criticism here before, but it doesn't make much sense. Yeah, Ubisoft The Game allows you to kill your enemies because it's a sandbox game, but you aren't forced to. I don't think there's a single person you have to kill in the game. If you're playing real stealthy, the number of people you even have to takedown at all, even with a taser, is pretty minimal. And canonically, Marcus isn't a killer.

Even if the crime prediction algorithm was able to predict Marcus' anarchist tendencies, does its accuracy make it ethical? And it's not even that accurate: Remember that Marcus got convicted of a crime he didn't commit based on that profile, before he even started looking into ctOS.

Also you're missing the dozens of other types of abuses of technology in the game, and how easily corruptable the system is. Even if it was 100% right about Marcus, which it wasn't, it still wouldn't be a vindication of the system.

The stealth/non-lethal is terrible in WD2. You can't move bodies, and when you knock someone out, they have these lengthy death animations/ragdolls and you can't predict where the body is going to end up. You can do everything perfect and the game will decide to place the body in view of other npcs and there's nothing you can do. Also, you're forced to physically go activate some things. Sometimes, you can't even use the remote controlled robots. Why??? It was awesome in WD1 when you could stand outside and never move an inch to complete the whole mission.
