Watch Dogs is the "Next Big Thing"


This site has no integrity.  That is why I like it here.

Could it be that we've seen too much of Watch Dogs already?

I mean, I have this feeling that the game is old while it hasn't even been released yet.

Am I the only one who think they should've let more for us to discover by ourselves.

They released so many videos that I have the feeling I've seen all there was to see yet I haven't even played it yet...


I understand they wanna build the hype but overdoing might be killing it...

@silv3rst0rm  I totally agree  - they've been bombarding us Watch Dogs for two years. Do you remember that excitement after the E3 announcement. Seriously getting tired of it now.

Is it really necessary for the author to include her picture on every article besides being bait for desperate male gamers?

It's a question based on no one else's head being on every single article picture. Not negativity

@TroyTrojanGamer Works for me. I know it is the News because I see her face.

I wonder why you had to say something negative.

does anyone know if the pc version of watchdogs will have controller compatibility,also is the resolution for the pc version superior to that of the ps4?

@springcubb88  @springcubb88  If you have a I7 cpu and a top gpu(ie..gtx 770 or better) then you're looking at 1080/60fps.


If you have a gtx 780 or better, then you can max out everything in ultra..1080p/60fps, as well.


The PS4 version will run at 900p/30fps will graphical settings below the pc version(ie..not ultra).


Also, the pc version will support full controller support.


I have a solid pc rig(I7 4.4GHz and a Titan gpu) and a PS4, and while i was thinking of ordering the PS4 version because i prefer online over PSN, i'm going with the pc version, as 1080/60 in ultra is a far better experience then 900p/30 in high.


Good luck in your choice..eithier version is a great choice.

By now it safe to say that most people have a 1080p display, with a bluray and a killer sound system, When you hear Microsoft or a game company telling us that the resolution is not really important, If that was true then why people go to great length to setup their gaming room or their entertainment living room with true surround sound and Full HD display?

@Liquid_  White knight here; she's not mediocre. You're just not getting laid. White knight out.

@spooned666 @Liquid_  She is a pretty average looking girl, I see girls like her everyday. If you'd shave your neck beard, lose the fedora, and step outside once in a while you'd probably realize that.

@ffragale1  Dude it is just some regular chick... The only reason you think she's hot is because she's presenting game stuff.



nice gall though nonetheless... But these kind of comments are so embarrassing

Jess, is the reason you're buying this for PC is because of the FPS, Visual quality or both? or is it the mouse/keyboard?

@Armyboy5  I think it´s all of them. you know, playing sandbox games with a mouse offers you the best "feeling". just like in FPS games.

@Armyboy5  Why would you buy anything on console if you have a pc?

I'm so glad your mis-perceive everything.  I can't see things from your point of view since I can't get my head that far up my ass.


Just trying to make the women feel attractive.  I'm paying her a compliment.

Awesome show as always.  Thank you Jess.  


When I get and X1, I'll get it with Kinect.  Maybe some games will have voice commands and such that I might want to use.


E3 and Microsoft.  Come on Microsoft. Take us for a ride.

One question.. What time do you wake up on a saturday to do the top five piece?

SaintsRowLA

@edussz  I think she does films the Thursday and Friday shows (American time) the same day if I remember correctly.

@edussz @SaintsRowLA is correct, I asked Jess about it some time ago. I think that maybe it would be better if somebody from GameSpot's San Francisco office did the Top 5 instead in case something happens in those 17 or so hours, but I understand that everyone already has a busy work schedule.

It must be said;  DAT ACCENT.

@BondSense  That accent is the most attractive accent in the world, at least to an American, or some of us.  The English-British accent carries a lot of weight too.

I purchased an Xbox One with Kinect on my own accord. It's not broken, it works perfectly however i DEMAND COMPENSATION RIGHT NOW YOU HEAR ME? I WANT COMPENSATION EVEN WHEN I'M NOT ENTITLED TO IT AT ALL.

XBOX MARKETING:  The Xbox One "price drop" scam didn't work.  Consumers realized that we were trying to manipulate them, seeing how it wasn't a price drop for the console and instead just an unbundling to lower the price by taking away the Kinect.  What will we do now?  We're doomed!


343 General Manager:  Let's talk about HALO 5 early.


XBOX MARKETING: But that's the only real ammo we have for E3.


343 General Manager:  Xbox dOne.


XBOX MARKETING: Hey!  Not funny.

MSspot: even though Project Beast has leaked screenshots and is highly rumored to be at E3, let's avoid talking about that PS4 Souls exclusive like the plague, even though it has screenshots, and write about the rumored Halo ports that have zero picture evidence of their existence. And lie to our readers, because they're too dumb to realize MS actually are the ones who told us, we will call it "our source" and act like we contacted them for info.

Lololol. Oh yeah, and in a video that contains Sony Press Conference details, let's make our MS masters happy and actually put the $399 Kinectless Bone in the headline for a second straight day for a promo. ;)

Lol.

Funny, I bought an XB1 from a co-worker for $400 with six games and connect. A day later Microsoft drops this news.
