Legion is coming out in a day and it seems like almost no one is talking about it. It feels like excitement has been dwindling with every video since they debuted the "recruit anyone" gameplay back at whatever E3 when those still existed. Personally my history with Watch Dogs in a nutshell is that I really enjoyed the first one and then thought they course corrected way too much on the second while also placing way too much emphasis on the drones to do the work for you. Legion seemed pretty wild when they first showed it but somehow the novelty of recruiting anyone seems to have worn off and from everything I've seen so far it appears to be just another Ubisoft open world game - but somehow less polished.
The few gameplay clips I've checked out make Legion look weirdly rough as if it's not a modern game, and definitely not one coming out for these next gen systems around the corner. Granted the next-gen bump was probably an after thought way late into development but still. I haven't played Watch Dogs 2 in a while but in Legion your characters all appear to move in this weird swimming motion. It's hard to describe but they seem to flail about like they're on the bring of ragdolling. Maybe thats just how it looks and the game plays fine so who knows. Overall it's really hard to describe but it all just feels kind of dated.. I do love me some open world nonsense that I can dick around in for hours and I'll probably be getting this at some point but I can't help but feel like this is a game from the past with a nicer coat of paint. With RTX on there are some nice reflection effects in the puddles and surfaces in the world but the characters still look like dolls and the animations make the NPCs look less life-like than ever.
Anyone here at all interested in this or is Legion kind of destined to come and go without much attention?
