    Still going to try WD.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I'm anxious to see how that game does because I feel they are hesitant to show more. I want it to be good as well. Its most likely the demo sections are being re used in all the gaming events and that leads to repetition

    They probably didn't know how to play it. Were there any specifics other than that quote? OR since they brought GTA into it, they are GTA "fans".

    It's hard to figure the reasons... maybe they just aren't used to how Watchdogs is played, compared to playing the same formula for a decade or more with GTA.

    I don't really understand people who compare Watchdogs to GTA. Have you even seen some videos of this game ?!

    I know the series is getting stale, but I'm getting ACIV on PS4 launch. It looks great and im really feeling the pirate mood.

    Watch Dogs, although I love a new IP... looks so generic and boring in terms of its game world.. maybe on the cheap I'll get it

    I think it's a fair comparison... however, I'd rather it be compared after people have had time to adjust to the way it's played and not expect it to be a GTA clone because it's an open world sandbox game.

    I feel the one thing that is holding back Watch Dogs from being interesting to many people is that the setting isn't futuristic enough. The setting has this super-advanced connected network, yet the city looks just like modern day (with some sprinkles of the future here and there).

    I love Cyberpunk stuff and most geeks love Cyberpunk stuff. Watch Dogs should have embraced that more. The elements are there a little bit though, including the music, which is cool. I like the music in this trailer:




    Anywho, if Assassin's Creed IV was the first game in the series, I would go with that for one of my launch games, but I'm just heavily leaning towards Watch Dogs because it's something new and it still looks like a good game, no doubt.

    I don't really think so, it's like comparing Max Payne to Uncharted. They both are 3rd person shooters but both are different games, you always expect different experience when playing any of them.
    But that's my opinion...

    Watch dogs is a fresh breath of fresh air and because it's freaking insane looking on next gen...

    Can I re-vote now

    Damn you Ubi. Looks like I'll be taking Watchdogs off of my pre-order list.

    Well, atleast now I don't have to wonder if I can afford 3 games at launch. Now I'll only get BF4 and KZ (and some of the f2p games).

    I voted for Watch_Dogs because I already reserved it, but with the recent delay I will get AC4. I just hope its not as disappointing as AC3. Hopefully it returns to its roots.

    Ubi has gone on record stating they are returning to their stealth roots with AC4. How true that is will inevitably be a personal decision from player to player as not everyone feels the same way about everything. I enjoyed AC3 for what it was, but I wasn't blind to the fact the stealth aspect of the franchise was lacking in it compared to previous titles. And I for one love stealth games....it's just the kind of gamer I am.

    According to Ubi, they claim to be taking the best of AC1,2,3 and FC3 and the result is AC4. I too hope its not disappointing, but as someone that got to the navel battles in AC3 and the smile it put on my face navigating that ship between rocks and circling enemy ships...I have a difficult time believing AC4 will be anything other then a joy for me to play.

    Anyone thinking the tables could have turned if AC was the more popular game? That's figuring if they're actually only spacing out the release dates of course.

    Ah, I gotcha now, thanks In any case, looks like we'll be waiting a lot longer to see how good it turns out. I hope they use that time wisely! Better delayed than broken in some way I suppose.

    I too enjoyed the naval battles it was something different and entertaining. I think what throwed me off completely was the stealth missing from the game and the change in the combat system. It just didn't fit, in comparison to the past games. I do hope AC4 is good also because I do really enjoy the series.
