Next-Ish Gen: Watch_Dogs PC Trailer Definitely Not Pug Ugly

Remember when Watch_Dogs was first announced back at E3 2012? That sure was something, huh? It was all shiny and "next-gen" and rain-spattered, like a soaked-to-the-bone canine shaking off in perfect slow motion. Subsequent trailers, however, have looked... less great. Not terrible by any means, but just a little plain. Why? I can't say for sure, but I do know that this bells-and-whistles-enabled PC trailer…

What An Eye Full: Watch Dogs’ System Requirements

I've grown complacent, and my PC weak. I haven't upgraded at all in a fair few years, but now face building a whole new system. See, the demands of multiplatform games pretty much stalled once console developers starting pushing their limits, but now a whole new load are out and oh, their games are hungry. One of the first all-singing, all-dancing shiny big games is…

Hack ‘N’ Crash: Watch_Dogs’ Exceedingly Hackable Chicago

I've been to Chicago before. It was for Lollapalooza a few years ago, so I remember heat, sweat, and gibbering herds of sticky humans jammed together like uncooked hotdogs - and pretty much nothing else. I guess, then, I'll just have to take Ubisoft's word for it when it comes to Watch_Dogs' rendition of Chicago, which is apparently about as true to life as you…

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". I've no idea who it was, and it might have been a ghost, but it's a fairly good description. Watch Dogs is an odd game. An open-world game of hacking that has touches of GTA and Deus Ex. But Like Dark Souls, it allows you…

Watch, Don’t Touch: Watch Dogs Movie In The Works

It's Gamescom, one of the many firework-enshrouded peaks of game convention season. You know what that means: glitz and glamour galore. No, the Hollywood-style antics don't quite reach the fever pitch of, say, an E3, but there's still plenty of triple-A chest-thumping to go around. And so, Ubisoft has rolled out another movie deal, this time for not-even-out-yet open-world hackomancy thing Watch Dogs. Technically, the…

Watch Dogs Isn’t About Dogs, It’s About Computers

Watch Dogs seems like just the game to mark the burgeoning brutal reality of governments around the world using technology as a boot with which to stamp on human faces, forever. It's a game about a fairly cool trenchcoat maverick-not-playing-by-the-rules guy - I mean I say "fairly cool", I would never want to look like him, or dress like that, but okay he's the kind…

Boundless Information: Watch Dogs Mission Walkthrough

In a post-PRISM reality, or rather a world in which the public have knowledge of PRISM, the hack and crash nature of open city cyber-adventure Watch Dogs could be considered timely, topical or controversial. Judging by the latest footage to emerge from the heaving bowels of E3, it's really a game about superpowers though. Strip away the theme of a game and most abilities beyond…

Who Watches The Watch Dogs?

UPDATE: New video of just gameplay, without someone wittering over the top of it. IGN, as it happens. And you can see footage of some GTA-type wandering about in Watch Dogs below. The handsome corporate gaming site was the first to get to grips with Ubisoft's action-hacking game about the timeless love affair between phones, surveillance, guns and explosions in urban areas, and it looks…

Hacksassin’s Creed: Watch Dogs’ Open World

Ubisoft's vaguely cyberpunk open-world thriller Watch Dogs has the worst minimap in history. It's so amorphous and blobby, like someone sneezed on the screen, and it miraculously oozed into a fully functioning UI element. I'm sorry. I know that's not really the main issue at hand here, but it had to be said. But yes, Watch Dogs! It looked rather promising - though somewhat upsettingly…

Hacker’s Paradise: Ubisoft On Watch Dogs

Much like the news that your house is beingĀ repossessed after a particularly brutal bout of identity theft, Watch Dogs came out of nowhere. Hot on the heels of a Ubisoft press conference that could charitably be described as "at least probably not offensive to someĀ breeds of orangutan," Watch Dogs mopped up that particular mess and then some. Main character Pearce hacked everything from cell phones…

Feature: E3 2012 Diary

PC Gaming: E3’s Dirty Little Secret

It's a bit odd to cover E3 with a PC-focused slant. Initially, I felt horrifically out of place roaming the LA Convention Center's banner-plastered halls. The Kratoses and Master Chiefs of the world leered at me from their billowing sky perches, and I longed for the warm embrace of, say, a game about embracing people - as Rambo. Xbox controllers and PlayStation pads contorted showgoers'…

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…
