It's basically what Assassin's Creed would be if it ever made the jump to the modern era. That's why I'm interested in it.

I guess that's a good reason to be excited for it, surely.

I am yet to finish a single Ass Creed game. I should finish Ass Creed 1 this summer, maybe.

This is the first day 1 purchase I am making for a game since... since... Serious Sam 2?... It's been a long time since I bought a brand new game.

The Watch Dogs gameplay vid I saw like 2 years ago left me blank. I had no idea what kind of game it was trying to be. I suppose you need to have played some Ass Creed to recognize the premise before actually playing and learning it.

By the way, for those who might care (Definitely not Finzy.), Watch Dogs will be forcing that Uplay client down everyone's throat, even through Steam.

I wouldn't say that. It isn't in any way related to Assassin's Creed. I just think Watch Dogs is what AC could be if AC was ever reinvented for the modern era. In other words (AC3 spoilers),
Watch Dogs is what a Desmond game might have been if they didn't kill him off.


Watch Dogs on its own is a story driven, open world action/stealth game. Similar mold as AC but a completely different game.

Still, it seems like Ass Creed helped you "understand" the gameplay style of Watch Dogs. I was left completely confused and uninterested by that old gameplay video, and I happen to have never played or even seen Ass Creed in action...

Maybe a mixture of AC and Metal Gear? I haven't played either, but I keep trying to play Metal Gear Solid at least...

I don't understand the confusion of Watch Dogs gameplay. You have an open world based on Chicago, you wander around hacking into things to help you accomplish goals, and you can use stealth or gun play to get around/through people. Seems perfectly laid out to me.

And I never wanted to play a Metal Gear game.

But to accomplish what? Are you following a set path? Are you doing a side mission? Is the main story a series of missions (like GTA games) or continuous progression without interrupts?

Are open world games new to you or something?

It likely has a similar structure as GTA. Free to do anything in the open world you want, but there's a critical path of story missions for you to follow at your own pace.

Okay, good thing I borrowed my friends Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Just gotta nab 1...

And good grief I'm so confused on what to do at the beginning of 3. Like, I know to sneak past teh guardz, but I can't be seen, right? But I can run through them, die, then continue like a Boss.

Hah.

You can, but you'll only restart from the beginning of that particular area if you die, plus you'll get god awful score ratings at the end of the game that way. And I bet you can't just run through the later areas in the game at all.

I don't know anything about that game but it looks awesome. Thanks for posting it. I hope it's not another multiplayer only versus game.

Edit: Some info from its Steam page:

Quote:
Subnautica is an open world, underwater exploration game currently under construction at Unknown Worlds, the independent developer behind Natural Selection 2. It aims to elicit a feeling of experiencing of the unknown, of not knowing how far, and how deep you can go.
Hell yes, this sounds awesome.

It looks a lot like Aquaria in 3D, or that animated film Finding Nemo. This game using a VR headset could be mindblowing. I just hope they will keep it colorful like in those pictures.

It kinda reminds me of an old game called S.T.O.R.M. The game was apparently released by EA, but it's just so obscure, that they don't list it, and it cannot be really found even as an abandonware. However, it's a windows game, meaning you can't really emulate it on dosbox, so on current PCs, it runs with like 1000000 FPS, so it's unplayable.

Alternatively, we really do need a new Ecco the Dolphin, screw Sega for sitting on the license so the original creator can't make a new game.

I'm no super expert on effective MGS strategy (only played all the games on Normal difficulty so far), but I find the tranquilizer gun to be very useful for most of the game. Just crouch with it and aim for guards' heads to instantly put them to sleep, then drag their bodies somewhere where they won't be spotted. It's the simplest sneaking you can do. And yea you should be doing that in first person. The HD collection MGS3 prolly plays in third person mode by default, if it doesn't switch to it anyway, it makes it MUCH easier to spot guards and see where you're going at least for me (I think it's the L3 button).

Also the game has some kind of "tips" section in the extras section of the main menu, which is a VERY useful read since it lists all the actions in the game you can do and some of them are not even really mentioned ingame like the various CQC tricks you can do. I'd recommend reading all of that, especially about CQC since it can save you from wasting ammo in lots of situations.

I hear it's a very popular game.

That dev obviously does not have the buyers of his games in mind, only cares about his gain, not their loss.

It does seem pretty popular. Unfortunately, people like the Candy Crush dev seems to know how to create a small vortex, especially with the current economy of cellular gaming.
