I can almost remember a time when E3 had actual surprises.

For me it was the environments or lack there of.
I liked how they changed the combat to be quicker, felt like a better fit in my opinion.
Tactics felt the same to me, they were just executed at a faster pace which felt right to me.
That's why they keep showing photos of all these new locations the past few weeks, that was their big failure.

It's an open world type game that I get to play on my new console.
GTA with a new coat of paint and I'm a hacker instead of gangster/mobster.
That is about as much as I expect out of it.

The hype meter was way up as it is considering the reactions when they first showed Watch Dogs forever ago.
When they showed it again and the graphics-hoopla started.
And when they delayed it for 6 months.
Game never stood a chance! ; )

I'll hopefully have some fun with it, trade it in if it's forgetable.

If you are using Windows, Microsoft Security Essentials should be all you need for anti-virus.

edit: Malwarebytes is good for occasional manual scans to, though

I'm with this guy.

@golguin: I use Microsoft Security Essentials and have never had a virus. It's free and unintrusive, and it's minimal scan is so fast it takes less than a minute. Windows 8 comes with it built in as Windows Defender too.

And that guy!

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.

I remember Heretic and Hexen but I can't remember if I had the full games or just played the hell out of the shareware.
Those days I was playing a lot of Doom on D.W.A.N.G.O.
That's some pre-internet shit right there!

I take the fire from the hip accuracy as a tip of the hat to old school fps games.
We only had shoot from the hip back then.
Hmm, I wonder what was the first game to use aiming down the site was cuz I sure as hell can't remember.
Maybe @jeff remembers?

I pre-ordered at the Microsoft Store and got a $15 Live gift card.
If it ends up being absolutely horrible I can always trade it in for at least $20 in the following weeks.
$25 to run around in a new open world on a new console?
Sure, why the hell not?
Expecting it to at least be a little fun.

Not sure if this was mentioned but...
What if Nintendo is making a phone?
First thing I thought of since it was going around that they were exploring the mobile front.
Now hardware/platform rumors.
Might not put Mario on an Android or iPhone, but maybe their own phone??
Too crazy?
If not... heard it here first!!
