Obviously the jury is still out but, personally, Watch Dogs has — by far — been the most exciting thing to come out of E3. A new IP, with original ideas, from a major studio… that didn’t leak before the conference? Well, the bar’s been set pretty low, so Watch Dogs completely blew me away.
Yes the name isa bit… rubbish, but the high concept is solid — you play as a chap who has the power to affect technology, to hack people’s phones on the fly, switch traffic lights, etc. It’s a cool, fiddly game set in what seems like a semi open world. I really love that Watch Dogs appears to have its own grounded universe. It looks like great stuff.
I loved the walkthrough, besides the silly pompous opening of course! Looking forward to seeing more.
