Welcome to the Accelerated World!
What do you do?
Go around hacking into things and assassinating your target. Aiden Pierce can hack into anything electronic within a fictional Chicago city for your target-eliminating or simple surveillance pleasures.
- Hacking, and lots of it!
- The ability to gain side-quests from one and every citizen in the city.
- Multiplayer! Players can track you and even assist or hinder you. Group quests seems possible.
- Can enter cars and vehicles
- The choices you make - Leave a person to die or rescue them (ties in with second feature)
- Freedom to explore buildings and roof-tops.
- Freedom to research a target or to eliminate them instantly.
- My Opinion:
Just like you guys (maybe you genuinely are or not I donno) I'm actually hooked onto this game. Just hearing and seeing the concept made my fictional fox ears (kon!) perk up with curiosity when coming across the ability to hack into everything in a mischievous way. I was going to shrug this off as just "another game", yet the concept of this game is highly unignorable.
Plus, I studied the ending of the E3 video and everything to do with multiplayer which got me even more hooked on this concept of a game. Players may track you, group up with other players (group assignment in E3 video ending), and the ability to do various kinds of challenges. You may run into other players that you may or may not mistake as other NPCs, all depends on design.
One thing I fear is how quickly you might make yourself at home, making things stale or uninteresting. GTA & Assassins Creed were both fun until you stopped doing quests, at which point you just screw around then leave the game collecting dust afterwards. I fear the same may happen to this. I hope it has enough to keep us hooked for a lengthy period of time and not just a few months then shelf it.
Anyways, if you genuinely like this game then show it, if not then you don't .

I also finally watched gameplay of The Last Of Us last night that people have been talking about, and DAMN... those are nice animations. Really looking forward to that now.
Watch Dogs looks like it could be real Deus Ex-ey... in that it will hopefully offer several ways of playing, lots of creative ways to hack crap and whatnot while also making big complicated philosophical points that go over everybody's heads

I just hope it wouldnt end up like how in Deus Ex we had multiple ways to play but more often than not had to prioritise stealth because of things like ammo scarcity.
