Watch Dogs’ Multiplayer Is Great, Broken, Great

I wrote a long list of reasons why I didn't like Watch_Dogs very much, and then at the end wrote briefly with caveats about why I liked its multiplayer mode. I thought that would be the end of it, but then a couple of times a week ever since - and it's been a month now - I boot the game back up to have…

Brief Impressions: Watch Dogs

I overheard a man at Ubi's recent Digital Days event describe Watch Dogs as "not really single-player, not really multiplayer".

Watch Dogs: Ubi Does Open-World Hack’n’Stealth

Tcch, everyone knows you don't reveal new game IPs at E3. It's all about companies trying to out-sequel each other. Or, if you're Microsoft, being insane enough to believe that anyone on Earth is interested that they've spilt more Bing onto their Xbox dashboard. Ubisoft have elected to buck the safe-bet trend with the mighty promising Watch Dogs - an apparently semi-open world game of…
