Watch Dogs Legion has a mission where you make Big Ben bong again

Watch Dogs Legion, aka Watch Dogs London, is nearly upon us. See its release, there, squatting at the end of October 2020 like a big cockernee pumpkin smoking a cigar. I am broadly looking forward to Ubisoft's hacktion adventure where you can play as anyone by recruiting any NPC you see into your gang of hacktivists with undercuts, because from the hands on previews I've…

Feature: A-hoo! Hackers of London!

Preview: a year on, Watch Dogs Legion’s “play as anyone” is so crazy it might just work

I don't go round singing "Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner!" or anything, but out of all the places I've lived so far, London is the one I think of as home. And this so happens to be the setting for hacktion-adventure game Watch Dogs Legion, which is definitely not called Watch Dogs London despite how often I accidentally say that. It's a dystopian near-future…

2020’s most exciting new PC games

Over the break we had a chance to do some serious scientific study of this business we call games, and it turns out that games are actually good. 2020 in particular has a healthy mix of big budget bonanzas and smaller indie plates to suit everyone's discerning tastes. And, as you know, the RPS treehouse is the most discerning, so to make it easier for…

Feature: I have seen as much of life as the world can show

Watch Dogs Legion’s version of London is surprisingly accurate

As was observed by some guy who used to work here (RPS in peace), it's really weird when bits of the UK turn up in games in an authentic way. Which is to say, in a way that isn't over-the-top Victoriana Steampunk. I say I say. Tea and crumpets. (Not that I don't like crumpets, or drink an amount of tea that means I get…

Feature: Hardly united

Watch Dogs: Legion does a good Lahndan, but the NPCs left me cold

“We've looked at the current state of the world" says the Watch Dogs: Legion developer giving my E3 presentation. "We’ve looked at politics". (A man behind me hisses, vehemently.) "We’ve looked at how people are reacting to each other, and asked 'what if these tracks took us in a very particular direction?'"After my hands-on with Watch Dogs the third, I can confirm that direction is…
