I like how in a matter of 5 posts, this topic can go from hype central, to super hype deflation doomsday, back to hype central.
I feel like the OT title should reflect this place's resemblance to a crisis hotline rather than whatever the current one references :p
GeDoSaTo isn't currently compatible with any DX11 games, is it?
That's a reasonable point, but is this DX11-only?

Ugh, Aiden just looks terrible now.

Part of me wants to boycott this game, but I really want to see how it runs on my PC... I'll wait for reviews before taking any actions. The gameplay I've seen and the story look generic as hell. :/

Haha I love you NeoGAF, one minute the hate is pouring down, next everyone is super excited and wants to pre-order. Guess a competent stream really helps.

looks like a ps2 game
Oh wow, I had no idea! Good looking out.

Yeah, iirc the
2012 demo
used txaa. I think i remember reading an eurogamer article that stated it. I wish nvidia would let other developers use it on consoles since it's cheap and very effective.

I've seen a playthrough of Watch_Dogs. The game was.... empty? I don't know how to say it but it was nothing special in my opinion.

I've seen like 10 playthroughs of WD at this point. Empty is not a word I would use to describe it.


lol nvm, that was a joke post

Might as well do that one too just to keep the quality consistent.

Your gifs look really really pretty What program do you use?

Lol, the heck? Near the end of one of the gameplay videos, Aiden is talking to
his sister
and he sounds like a completely different person. Like, a fucking normal person. Does that mean his GRAVELLY BADASS MCBATMAN VOICE is just a put-on fake he uses to sound tough?

That's what I said.

Them PC textures look like crap. Hopefully it's on low.

Looks like Best Buy is doing Midnight Openings in many cities for the game. Gamestop isn't. Looks like I'll be picking it up at midnight then.

I don't know what it is, but I can't really quit this game. there's something potentially iconic about aidan in a duster, ball cap and a make shift ski mask. The game has charisma, which I haven't seen from an open world ubi game since Assassin's Creed 2. I remian cautiously optimistic ( eg, reviews/gaf impressions with a grain of salt)

No "Digital deluxe" for PS4/X1? Torn between getting the PS4 digital (When can PSN download it in the US? 3am EST?) or Steam/uplay Deluxe.

Watched about 40mins or so of a stream on Twitch. Parts of it look fun, but I think Ubi were wise not to release it at the same time as GTA, it would have been totally destroyed. The main character seems to be your typical Brock Dudebro, Man of cardboard. The one thing I noticed was the car that the player was driving had bullet holes in it's back windows, which all disapeared until the window was unmarked. That was weird. Obviously I haven't played it, so shouldn't really judge, but the impressions I got were it's one of those things you buy as a time filler until the game you really want comes out.
