Having been one of the many millions of dumbasses who bought Watch Dogs under the pretense that it would be good, I avoided it's sequel like the plague.

Three takes place in London with a new gimmick, play as anyone, which will probably get boring within a half hour.

Will you be buying this shit?

Looks pretty crap to me. I want to be Hackerman but it's mostly just a lame gimmick around poor shooting and driving.

Might be wrong. Probably not.

I wouldn’t mind picking it up myself sometime, maybe not right away though. I played the first one and had some fun with it. Thought it was an ok enough game. Didn’t get around to the sequel though. No reason in particular as to why not, was probably just too busy with other games. This one looks kind of neat with how you can basically play as any character.

More than likely. I didn't care much for the first two, but I love the idea as playing as anyone. Gives me Driver San Francisco vibes, and that's never a bad thing.

Someone will surely make a best character guide, I'll probably skip it to be honest.

Recruiting hooligans and granny's sounds cool, but nah. Watch Dogs has never been that interesting for me.

Sure I will at some point. The open world, play-as-anyone gimmick sounds fun - it sold me on The Nomad Soul way back, even if it did turn out to be less cool then than it was in my head. Mainly I just want to mess around in a re-imagined London.

Watch Dogs 2 soured me on the franchise. I didn't care for the hipster SJW shit they had going on in it. This one does look better, but it is not a high priority for me. All the hacking shit doesn't really appeal to me as much as it did in the first game either. Now it is all just visual clutter and distractions on the screen.

Also, how interesting is the story going to be if we are jumping around between all these people?

Wasn't too interested before, but every since that Uplay event, it looks like they made some great improvements to it. Hope it is good.

I don't know probably not but I actually liked the original Watch Dogs although Ubisoft really tainted it with the graphics downgrade but I like the dark tone of it and the combat was surprisingly good. WD2 was ok at best but man the characters where annoying hipsters the best part of that game was calling the cops on random NPC's it was funny as shit. As for the new game I feel they really jumped the shark it looks more like a Saints Row game then a WD's game. I wish the series would go back to it's roots and make a darker tone game instead of this silly shit.

Not gonna claim know much about 2, but I saw this and kinda feel that's all I needed to know.

Loading Video...

Having played Odyssey wouldn't buy this anyway.

It's very clear the RPG mechanics aren't there to enhance the enjoyment of the game, they are designed specifically to frustrate people into buying Ubipoints, it's at the very core of the design.

Connect, segment and impede.

Want to level up a bow? Well nope. Gotta be level X. Oh, still can't level it, gotta upgrade that Spear to level 5 bro.

Oh, Can't upgrade that Spear gotta get clues for those cult members.

You got one? Oh, gotta kill 7-9+ cult members for the framents.

Oh, nope, you gotta be level X to kill that cultist.

Oh, you didn't upgrade your ship to kill that cultist.

Oh, you didn't progress in the story to kill that cultist.

etc... etc.. etc..

Fuckoff Ubisoft.

Probably not. Watch Dogs always had a problem with tone. First one was too grumpy and serious, so the second one switched to the diametrically opposite, and just ended up obnoxious. This one reminds me horribly of Resident Evil 5, which can't seem to make up its mind whether it's camp or serious.

Yeah, not to get too tone-policey about it, but I had the same issue with Far Cry from 3 onward. My money's on all Ubi stuff being deliberately hammy, as of FC4, but some of the incidental dialogue is so flat, it's hard to tell for sure.

I really enjoy the first Watch Dogs, was really new when it release around the time both PS4/Xbox One were still new to the gaming world and for its time, it look really good on PS4, cool gadgets and hacking stuff along the way and plus, I still dig the Deadmau5 cameo. Watch Dogs 2 really lost me with all this hipster BS, I barely could finish the game and really lost my interest in this franchise.

Now for Watch Dogs: Legion, I like what I'm seeing and has somewhat restored my interest in the series but I sure ain't gonna buy it. I'll be playing it though Uplay+ sub.

GamePass or bust.

Even then I'd likely try it for a short while and quit never to be played again. :P

I played the first when it came out. Felt like a chore to beat. I traded it on shortly after. I skipped the second and will probably skip this one.

Nah. Played the first, and didn't bother with the second. Just not a series that could really grip me.

I enjoyed Watch Dogs 1 for its gameplay, but 2 was just obnoxious with its dialogue and style that was not funny or charming.

i'm not sold in Legion but i'm not dismissing it yet either.

I really enjoyed Watch Dogs, and eventhough it felt like a wannabe GTA, it still felt fresh and engaging in its own way.

Also I didn't get the hate for Aiden that most people had.

But Watch Dogs 2 was just a letdown, I don't even know why I bought it, apart from it being a techdemo:

I liked both Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2 , so I'm interested.

There are just going to be some games ahead of it in the queue this holiday -

  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Crash Bandicoot 4
  • Spider-Man Miles Morales - (if I have a PS5)
  • (Maybe) Kena Bridge of Spirits (if it turns out well)
  • etc.

I'm more interested in Watch Dogs Legion than Assassins Creed Valhalla

Bu bu but you can recruit anybody on the street!!! Its incredible. You can recruit a granny and do the exact same shit you've been doing in every single open world Ubi game, but this time around, the skin of your character is a granny. Innovative as f*ck, bwoiii.
