Where they say 1080p dosent matter sorry xbot`s it matters a whole lot.  Play 720p on a 1080p tv and enjoy the jaggie fest it looks like minecraft.

dont think this watch dogs will be that special sick of hearing about it really. as for resolutions again gamespot always have to be corrected by me because they seem to think there is a resolution between 1280x720p and 1920x1080p there is not these are the only two used hd standards though technically 1080p isn't even used on any tv broadcasts because of its bandwidth requirement at the moment 


if you are PC gamer like me then things would be different as a computer and monitor can use a many types of resolutions. if you are a console gamer only you have no need to worry about resolution it will make little difference depending on tv screen sizes. i play all my pc games at 720p because the resolution is perfect vs the screen size and you are saving more graphical resource meaning great fps. if you are maxed out and have max fps clearly you might as well add more definition.

Watch Dogs looks great in the footage shown here.  Thank heavens it won't be much longer before we have the final product in front of us and can confirm whether it's the future we all hoped for or if it looks like GTA IV.

The teddy bear chucking bit was pretty funny =P


Gamespot's autoplay thing is f**kin' annoying, everytime I'm about to put a comment in near the end of a video it jumps to another one, it's getting as bad as sh**ty ign.

Hi Jess!

Well, let's face it. EA is a JOKE in the recent years. Mass Effect has gone down, especially the endings in 3. Same with Crysis, BF, Dead Space, NBA Live, Sims City. Only the Sims series is doing fine. Anything I missed, please be free to comment down my comment, OKI?

Watch Dogs is still a watch of the year. Just make sure almost no bugs, ok?

Since it is April Fools Day, I just wanted to tell you Jess that you are really gorgeous, seriously. =D Because of that, I prefer pickup lines 4 u....

ehem, ehem, EHEM! hmmm, hem-hem.... *clears throat*

I can't think about anything today...

*audience shouts WHY????*

Because all I think is U.

*facepalm* *embarrassed* *audience laughs*

I know. I know. I should have stopped myself doing that. But hope you appreciate it, Jess. ;D

Anyways, its April Fools Day. =D

Have a nice day fooling around! ;DDDDD

I did notice COD:Ghosts had 'Pew Pew' etc never crossed my mind it was to do with April Fools. 

The Wii U thing is amusing though, maybe more companies should 'accidentally' release the political correctness for a day and say what they actually think though...queue the Microsft bashing, COD bashing, PS4 praising etc etc

Should have used a (Mass Effect) Reaper's "growl" at the end -- would have been much more frightening.

@Merseyak Yeah, no doesn't look that bad unless you're an OCD person looking for flaws in which case my new PC with 1440p destroys your little PS4 anyway. See, PS4 owners settled for less than best, same as X1 owners.

@SaintsRowLA @n0xinab0x With part Scottish blood, I'm more or less compelled to avoid sun exposure, and people routinely think I look about 25 rather than 37.  Tanning is sun damage, period.

@n0xinab0x @tempertress  as a Scot our native colour, when the sun shines, is pink...alas I am lucky as I bronze but I do feel a bit like a potato amongst the prawns! Jess has the look we refer to as a 'celtic beauty'...it is in stark contrast to the false and in many cases ridiculous 'hollywood barbie doll' look. Team tempertress! :D

Stupid belief: If you're lighter skinned you must get a tan to look good.

Bullsh**.   I was raised with that belief only to find out that it's BS.

I noticed there were plenty of fair skinned people who wore shorts on shorter dresses and skirt and look beautiful naked leaving their skin as is.

Maybe darker skinned people should use bleaching cream and bleach themselves pale to look good.
