CTOS stands for central operating system....:suspect:

what the hell does the 'T' stand for then? are they spelling it Cen Tral Operating system or something. sorry, knit picking really but wtf?

Dat No. 20 though! :lol:

Looking good. Hope it's not as drab as the AssCreed series though. By that i mean i hope it more full of life. It looks to have it covered, but i guess we will see.

[QUOTE="Hermes, post: 6332741]I don't understand why people are so ready to write the game off. Regardless, I'll be playing it day 1.[/QUOTE]

Me either. I think it's a combo of Ubisoft, the so called downgrade and delays. I've mostly been pleased with new ips from ubi, I see nothing but awesome in these videos, and the delay only slightly annoyed me. Too soon to tell but if it turns out to be great which I expect it will, oh well. Their loss imo, I'll bee enjoying it.

Me too, don't care what everybody thinks, I am buying this day 1. It is Ubi, and they are most prepared devs for this gen.

21. you can hack into other player's missions, thus spoiling the time they spent on it already and prevent them from getting hte reward of the mission
I wonder how it is possible that we still have no idea how Ayden controls the electronic things, is this when he controls the server, a list / map appears of all the things he can control (that would be 1000s of things so not practical), or he must go everywhere and the things that can be controller get highlighted (hopefully when you push a button because seeing things highlighted everywhere would be distracting). My problem is in the videos we've seen until now, things happen for no apparent reason, so it could be "push the button and something magic will happen and help you", which would be lame.

I think you're asking how he controls the things around him?

If you didn't know, the backstory is that some mayor installed the CtOS system which controls all of Chicago. Aiden somehow managed to get access to the CtOS system. (How he got it is unknown, it'll probably tell us in the story at some point.)

from what I've seen, when Aiden is hacking things, a node-like object appears over the hackable object. It usually appears near the closest object that can be hacked.

Hope that helps.

Less than a month away! I'm glad they took all this time to polish, because it's really looking good. You notice there is no negative talk anymore?

thanks, I missed that part, I always see the info bubble on people but didn't see this above objects ; I'm not sure it's practical though, I guess you use the D-pad to navigate through the objects you can hack and use, but it may be tight to select the one you want in hot situations (like a car chase scene I've seen wher Aiden hacks a garage door, I don't know how you could think of a possible garage door when speeding to escape someone)

[QUOTE="Sufi, post: 6334730]hey guys just wanted to come in here and post that this game makes me want to punch kittens.

problem?[/QUOTE]

I'm allergic to cats. so punch away :cool:

However, when this game turns out to be better than Infamous Second Son...well, I hope that crow won't be too bitter for some of you.

When I look at some of the car chases, the nodes pop up when you're nearing them. They give you a fair amount of time to press and hold square or another button to cause the hack. You can check out a car chase video from some of the watchdogs footage to judge for yourself.

I've also seen some footage where aiden opens up a wheel-like selection pad on the screen which allows you to cause certain other hacks (I saw phone disruption and light controlling). I guess these could be caused from just about anywhere.

So long story short, I guess you'll have some hacks when you're close by and some hacks you can always use.

I didn't notice actually. But now that you've made mention it DOES seem like The Negators have cleared the area since all the recent media on this game hit.

Don't worry. They'll return when they manage to find something wrong with the actual game

Though we may be waiting a while....

[QUOTE="sterritt, post: 6335597]Any word if this has gone gold yet? Did try a google search and asked on Twitter but the message got removed.[/QUOTE]
I've read that they're fully focused on the Wii U version now. They had previously held it back to ensure the other versions would be as good as they could be.

Would that mean that our version is done? I hope so! I'm all set for an all nighter on the 27th, I hope it makes the release.

I'd say yes. If they're focusing on Wii U now, then the other systems (PS4, Xbone, etc. is probably set to go.
