@theht: the Mako itself was fine, everything around it was terrible.

@oldirtybearon: To me it just feels like some people completely lose all critical thought when it comes to exploration elements and RPG elements. These were cookie cutter landscapes, mostly completely empty except for a few collectibles and the way they gave you to navigate it felt terrible to control most of the time. To me It made the galaxy feel empty and lifeless. I much preferred the side missions centered on helping your squadmates in the latter games, missions that felt properly designed.
It's really funny how often Hamilton's out because of some technical mishaps. But oh well, in the actual race he'll probably catch up to podium once again.
Also once more a fantastic strategical job by Ferrari.
VERY unlikely IMO. Hungaroring is basically impossible to overtake on. Maybe if there is rain and safety cars.
@impossibilium: The point is that there is no non-dick path. There is no way to complete the objectives of the game without being a dick to someone somewhere. You only get to choose how much of a dick you are.
And even then, the choices range from complete dickwad to total asshole. There's no "well-meaning vigilante" here. Just a selfish cretin that threatens the lives and safety of numerous innocents to avenge a single death.
I had no interest playing Watchdogs whatsoever until this article and reading the comments.
But now I do. Very much so.
I'm tired of playing good guys, or loveable assholes, or han solos, the self defense excuses all that bullshit. People seem to be saying Aiden is a selfish dick and a piece of shit. That actually sounds 99% more interesting then your average videogame protagonist. Playing the bad guy, I want to do that.
(and not the psychopath type of stuff Infamous: SS does, or Kratos for example, but everything i've read here so far, paints a picture of a somewhat realistic and believable bad guy, a bad guy going down that road naturally)
That would be fine but the game doesn't know he is a bad guy. It tries to sell him as a basically good, if flawed, guy, and it just doesn't add up with what he actually does. There is no consistency to his character, one moment he is handwringing over the moral grey area he inhabits, the next he is icing fools in cold blood. One second he is doing criminal work and stealing cancer patients' money without a second thought, the next he is rescuing civilians out of burning cars. And he does this all in this charmless monotone that mostly makes him seem sort of bored.
I found it weird that there are no nazi salutes in the game. You see some statues depicted doing it but with the wrong (right) hand. Does anyone know the reason behind this? Is it to be able to sell it in Germany?
