the game looks great, but remember watch dogs? I won't hope for too much, but i will definitely keep my eyes on this one

Is this the same Division that was at last year's e3? What the hell?

I hope this is what the xbox one version will look like, and I considerably better for PC.  One of my most looked forward to big budget games.

If they were going to have the guy play the game on stage, they shouldn't have done the scripted voice acting. They should have picked one or the other. 

The graphics also look a little bit downgraded from last year. Okay that sucks but it's fine. If they downgrade any more, that will be unacceptable.

Even with the horribly staged voice overs and drama, I felt especially sick to my stomach every time "FIRST ON XBOX ONE!!!!" popped up.  It's multi-plat, I don't really care where it's displayed first.  It's just as annoying as those "First!" comments.

I would like some talking. But the "follow the chatty girl" seems to have survived from 2013's demo.  

In other games.... Even on maps that require some coordination, most of the time, nobody says anything.  Then there's that dude that has friends over, mic on, radio playing, and he still says nothing, but you can hear his roommates' friends talking the ^whole^ round.   It gets to the point that the only reason to wear the headset is so that my kids can't hear what other players say.  

The only way to get players to cooperate is to make them.   Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, you could get revived, and would help your team, because there was prompt punishment for letting your team bleed out.  You died too.  I wonder if this game will find a way to make playing together and cooperating an essential ingredient for success.  Most of the time, strangers online do not speak to each other (unless death is the consequence.)  Or - the door won't open unless you all say something, and the game won't continue.   

I'm interested in this game, (and Destiny) but online cooperation has never been easy to find.   We'll see how they encourage or require it.   [or will it be Co-Op in name only?]

Not buying into the Ubi BS. I guaran-damn-tee you, this game WILL. NOT. LOOK. like this. It will be like Watch Dogs and be a horrible port. I was amazed at how botched Ubi's new IP was, so I see no reason why they'd do anything different here. I've lost all interest in this title. Having the Ubisoft name on a game is pretty much a death sentence nowadays. You just know they're going to never deliver on a decent PC experience. They are all talk, it's what Ubi does best.

Yeah man, Watch Dogs looked the same on E3 and we all know how it did turn out. the final product is not bad but its not brilliant as E3 version either. Eat your lies Ubisoft.

The stupid people talking are freaking annoying! It honestly turns me off from the game. Just show us the game without your cheezy ass voice actors Ubisoft!

Holy cheeseballs. That voice acting and way over scripted drama was horrible. 


So if its all online play will there be no dialogue at all from the in game players? thats what made The Last Of Us such an immersivegame.

I really dislike the obvious voice actors being used to portray your actual friends or whoever you would be playing with, we're not that stupid. The game looks alright but honestly the gunfights there didn't do much for me. I don't like the borderlands/mmo thing where it shows how many points you got for shooting someone, and I don't like how the enemies react to being shot at and killed. Unfortunately it seems one of my most anticipated games is sliding further down the chart.

@ccusick Don't forget Ubi's blatant, cheesy tie in for a tablet integration. I tried their Watch Dogs app, and uninstalled it after it had crashed 3 times. Ubi quality assurance issues know no device-based boundaries!

@aegis_kleais This game and watchdogs were both first shown on PC using console controllers. Of course they need to be downgraded for consoles. And watchdogs was on current gen as well which means it was doomed from the start.

@Psycold Not only did the guns look like they had no kick or oomph, but whomever was aiming was rather loose and sloppy with the controls. Did you notice how many times he went wide and overshot?
