Poll: Watchdogs arriving this Tuesday, are you getting it? (204 votes)

Indeed I will...Time to play the sad story of Aiden Pearce. 40%
Nah, I'm not planning on getting it anytime soon. 33%
I'm still debating. 27%

Well the wait will soon be over. After playing Wolfenstien (Great Game, kinda sad ending) I'm in the mood for an asweome Open-World Adventure. I've already pre-ordered this game off of psn, and I don't go to work Tuesday so I'll spend some quality time with the game. Do I believe the game will live up to the hype? I think to a degree, but of course there will be people that will be super disappointed with it.

I need reviews and PC benchmarks. I want to get this game on PC but if that game is as badly optimized as I fear I may have to get it on PS4.

#2 Posted by falserelic (5437 posts) -

So far I've been hearing people complaining about the graphics on ps3 and 360, but lucky for me as long as the gameplay is fun I'm good.

#3 Posted by Fear_the_Booboo (486 posts) -

I have it pre-ordered 'cause I wanna play everything and I'm stupid about it.

It is not the game I'm most excited for though, and if I didn't care that much about videogames I would not have pre-ordered it.

#4 Posted by Rowr (5649 posts) -

I feel like this game is really hurting from taking too goddam long to come out.

Then again, if it's great that shouldn't matter in the long run.

#5 Posted by Vanick (331 posts) -

I'm going back and forth between buying it or renting it. One way or another I will play it though.

#6 Posted by LordAndrew (14426 posts) -

Oh, the Wii U version isn't out yet on the 27th? That gives me time to think about it then.

#7 Posted by leebmx (2244 posts) -

I get paid on Tue and I have to get something for my PS4 after returning the boring-as-hell Assasins Creed Black Flag. Hopefully this isn't another one from the Ubi school of climb towers/collect stuff school of gameplay. If the reviews are OK I am going in - really hoping this is a fun open-world to arse about in.

#8 Posted by BIGJEFFREY (5046 posts) -

I pre ordered to get Aiden Pearce's FUCKING ICONIC hat

#9 Posted by AlisterCat (5565 posts) -

What version were they playing on Gamespot yesterday? The graphics were not as good as expected, so I don't think it was the PC version. It also seemed very much like GTA in the bad way. I'm still getting it.

I played the Freedom Cry DLC and man it was boring. It made me glad that I didn't drop the money to get the full game. I think I'm done with the Assassin's Creed Series at this point. Nothing about the series gets me hyped up anymore. Ubisoft games do tend to get repetitive quickly, but if the side content is fun then it can be forgiving. Far Cry 3 did that pretty well for me.

#11 Posted by notnert427 (229 posts) -

I've hit the entire spectrum of excitement with this game, from HOLY SHIT back when it was first announced to increased apathy to back somewhere in the middle now. I will say that this is releasing at an ideal time for me, given the relative dearth in quality games for the new consoles right now. If the game gets good to great reviews and is where it ought to be after a delay in terms of graphics/optimization, I'll probably pick it up sometime next week, but I'm still in "wait-and-see mode" until then.

#12 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Pre-ordered on steam. There better be a preload or I won't be playing it until Thursday with my download speeds.

#13 Edited by micemoney (147 posts) -

Yeah I'm getting it with pretty low expectations.

#14 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4510 posts) -

Nooooope. Watch Dogs has never looked appealing me. I still hope it turns out to be a great game regardless, but I haven't seen anything that would ever make me want to pick it up.

#15 Posted by BeachThunder (11936 posts) -

I've put my money towards Murdered.

I pre ordered to get Aiden Pearce's FUCKING ICONIC hat

I would buy Watch_Dogs if you can play as Aiden Pearce's hat.

#16 Posted by afabs515 (1074 posts) -

Those delays really robbed me of pretty much any enthusiasm I had for the game, so no.

#17 Posted by peritus (1012 posts) -

Im getting the bundle.

#18 Posted by spraynardtatum (2951 posts) -

I was much more excited about it a year ago but I still think it looks pretty fun. I have to admit though, I almost cancelled my pre-order when I saw those gifs of the flashing bridge. But I thought it through and the idea behind the game is still really compelling to me. I hope it isn't stupid.

#19 Posted by NorthSarge (251 posts) -

As its come closer to release I feel more and more like I shouldn't buy this game... But I might. WHO KNOWS. probably be an impulse buy if I see some cool stuff about it one day.

#20 Posted by Franstone (1121 posts) -

Pre-ordered it for Xbox One from MS Store which gives you a $15 live gift card. (If ordered by the 22nd)
PC needs a GPU upgrade so I'll be getting most games on console till new video cards start showing up.

#21 Edited by Demoskinos (14830 posts) -

Nope. But then again I haven't played anything else besides FFXIV for well over a month now.

#22 Posted by Milkman (16791 posts) -

All the delays really hurt this game. I was really excited at one point but now I just feel like I'm kind of over it.

#23 Edited by Chop (1997 posts) -

I don't think so

I feel pretty done with Ubisoft's big budget games at this point.

#24 Posted by MonkeyKing1969 (2775 posts) -

I'm getting it for sure, it looks interesting enough to purchase.

#25 Edited by pyrodactyl (2035 posts) -

I really hope it's good because watch dogs is pretty much it until destiny in september. And I don't know even if I'm exited to play destiny.

#26 Posted by falserelic (5437 posts) -

Seems like I won't be playing this game after all. My ps4 met its demise after 6 months of using it. I honestly don't know what the fuck happened. I was about to play warframe and my ps4 froze, and it got to the point when I had to pull the plug. Now the fucking piece of shit won't cut on at all. I was having some issues with it before, but I guess it just finally gave up.

I got no money for a new one at the moment, and now I don't want a ps4 anytime soon.

It's leaked on PC now and I've been hearing it runs pretty well on average hardware. The recommended system requirements are giving people 70+ FPS on ultra.

I have an i5 and a GTX 760. I don't think I can play that game on ultra. Can you give me a link to the leaked PC version.

Your PS4 is still well within warranty.

That's the worst story I've ever heard.. Sucks, dude..

I was thinking of getting it, yea. So probably. XONE.

#31 Posted by Brendan (7807 posts) -

It'll hinge on reviews for me. My initial interest was dulled by further information about the game so I'm coming in with middling expectations.

If I hadn't pre-ordered Watchdogs off of psn I would be less pissed, It's fuckin bullshit. I only had it for 6 months and now its gone already. It ended up just like all 4 of my xbox 360s. I was really excited to play Watchdog, but I can't now. At the moment I got to save money for a Vegas trip, and now I'm thinking about getting an XONE. I feel like a conflicted ryu hayabusa walking down a sad lonely road now.

Wow, that's crazy. Yea, I would cancel the PSN order just in case, Asap. But definitely still try to see if you can exchange out the PS4 with Sony. If you really have to go back to retailer, like Amazon or Meijer or something, then yea that seems harder at this point. Hopefully you have a receipt, especially if some of that stuff is online.

Truthfully, I've been PS3 more than XONE at this point, and XONE more than PS4 anyway. As soon as they put up the HBO Go app on XONE, that'll seem easier for me.

Oh and Watch Dogs: I'm not livid with Ubisoft yet, so I bought AC IV and Freedom Cry, and Watch Dogs, AC V, and Far Cry 4 still seem to be full steam ahead for me. I just doubt you could slaughter and stab everyone in the face and hide in the "bushes" like you can in AC, so I'm not too excited exactly. I'm pretty sure I'm still getting the WD Season Pass though. I'm a sucker, its fine. I have fun.

#34 Posted by pickassoreborn (525 posts) -

Getting many copies of this. Vigilante Edition for the cap and facemask will provide hilarious studio-based photo opportunities. Be sure to use the thing I worked on in the game! I can't mention what yet, but I will eventually.

#35 Posted by Sterling (2293 posts) -

#36 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5508 posts) -

The only thing I'm debating is whether to get this on Pc or Ps4.

I been trying to cancel my pre-order, but there's no option. Feels like I'm still trying to fight after I lost the battle, it just ain't fair never was to begin with. Karma is one mean dirty bitch, she's a whore always will be.

#39 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (414 posts) -

Probably? I don't know, I think at this point I'm certain I'll get it, I just need to decide whether I get the PS4 or PC version(read: whether or not Ubisoft actually does PC optimization).

#40 Posted by Stealthmaster86 (655 posts) -

I should finish paying it off tomorrow.

#41 Posted by Solh0und (1774 posts) -

I'll Redbox it like I did Wolfenstein. I plan to purchase it on PS4 though.

#42 Posted by TooWalrus (13197 posts) -

I suppose it's been awhile since I've actually... Played a video game. This seems like it might be interesting and relevant. I'll probably play it.

@falserelic Dude, you don't have to pay for another PS4. You're well within the warranty period. Contact Sony or the store you got it from and they'll sort you out.

#44 Edited by TheMasterDS (2066 posts) -

I'll be getting it for sure. I'll want to play it. I think I'll buy on XONE, I prefer the controller and Sony are scumbags who update their store at 1 PM so I can't start the download before work. Which is real crap considering games take longer than my evening but not longer than my workday to download.

That said in this case it doesn't matter since e next Dresden Files book is coming out that day so I will be completely incapacitated that day unable to care about anything not it. Shame Watchdogs had to release that day.

#45 Posted by mrcraggle (1938 posts) -

For me, this is the first game in awhile where reviews may actually matter. I was really into the original E3 reveal trailer, until the end part part anyway but the more I've seen, the more the focus has been on the shooty-shooty, bang-bang. Ubisoft also have a spotty track record with PC as of late so I'll need to see how it performs first as well.

#47 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11009 posts) -

Yeah. Unless all the reviews say the game is broken, I'll be getting it. I like open world games enough that I want to play it.

#48 Posted by ProfessorEss (7371 posts) -

I never quite got into the E3 hype and unlike most I've grown more interested in Watch Dogs as they've shown more gameplay/mechanic videos. I know a lot of people were looking for something more but I'm a huge sucker for open-world mechanics so if this game is technically sound I will no doubt buy it at some point.

BUT, I have a pretty crazy backlog so I wouldn't be surprised if I don't buy or play it for a while. I could see me picking it up when I finally decide to get a new console.

#49 Posted by Karkarov (3102 posts) -

Considering I already pre ordered.... yes I will.

#50 Posted by AndrewB (7613 posts) -

Depends on reviews. The game is a graphical powerhouse, but I haven't done a whole lot of pre-release scouting to learn about the substance, and what little I have seen makes me skeptical. It would be nice to see someone out-Rockstar Rockstar when it comes to open world city games, but then there's the rumor of GTA V coming out for PC and current gen consoles...
