Interesting information there, Watch Dogs could be something truly special. I hope that is true Carolyn, I love the Dexter series! :D

Carolyn, did you get to ask them how they are managing to get Xbox and PS3 to run what looks like a next gen game? Im still waiting for some kind of catch or something, it just looks too good to be this gen!!

This game will be amazing when it releases. The details sound stunning

I don't know much about the mechanics of it all (so if anyone does know something I don't, please feel free to correct me) but my one concern with the friend interaction is the impact distribution. Now what I mean by that is if you have ten friends all playing watch dogs and they all see you're doing well and all decide to use something to make life more difficult for you, then that could be a massive flaw right? (potentially) because one person trying to make things difficult for you, yeah you can adapt to that, but ten people all at once; it's just going to be an onslaught of attacks. You'll recover from one person messing with the traffic lights, then someone else will do it, and then you'll get attacked by seven more friends symaltaniously right?

Why the fuck does Carolyn nod sop much lol? Anyhow this game looked really interesting up until the gun fight came a long, which don't get me wrong looked sweet, but I have enough shooters. Still this game has a lot of potential.

 @deadpeasant Look up far cry 3 or Beyond: 2 souls. Consoles can handle this. Ignore PC elitist trolls

 @Joellevene It sounded like when she (?) was describing it that you actually get to accept or decline the things your friends can do in your game world. I don't think it'll just be something you can't prevent from happening.

 @Joellevene Yeah, but there's also the possibility of other people helping you out, perhaps someone else jams police communication so make your get away easier.

@Nathalmighty1 It would be brilliant if you could choose if you accept the friend interaction. Because then if you have completed the game already and now want to go back with the extra challenge, then you can do that. But it would be annoying of you just want to finish the game and you can't because of a constant onslaught of attacks. Once you've finished the game once, then it's fun to try the added challenges. That's how I like to play it anyway :)

@hortys_999 I'll have to have to watch it again in that case :D

 I think so too. Because no one wants to play a game in which you get bullied by 10 evil freinds

@AnonYC Very true. I'm only thinking if you happen to have a whole load of evil friends though :p but other than that the concept is brilliant. I know there have been games before where you can jump into someone else's game to help them out. But this is subtle and you can interact with multiple people whilst still playing your own missions, you don't have to physically stitch to someone else's game.

@Whitebloodsun @hortys_999 Yeah I hope you guys are right, cos it sounds like a more logical option. Just realised how much I sound like its Scott pilgrim (except its seven evil exes instead of ten evil friends)
