Watch_Dogs is literally the worst PC port ever made.  "Don't buy it, pirate it."

The game has negative acceleration for the mouse. There is literally no way to fix the mouse lag. Editing the config files does fuck all. It is completely unplayable. Your movements vary from .25-1+ seconds behind. It has performance issues with Nvidia cards and MAJOR issues with Radeons (Apparently Nvidia payed them off).

4.5GHz i5 2500k, 4GB GTX 770. Runs 60fps then randomly jagged, in a small corridor (Seems to be shader related). Some guy with dual 780 Ti's had it even worse. Also, if you have 4GB RAM it's got a memory leak and you'll have to reboot after an hour.

You need a controller to play. Stay the fuck away from the piece of shit until these cocksuckers fix it.

As of now I give the PC port a 0/10, even EA isn't this fucking stupid.

The game in general seems mediocre and common opinions tend to agree, I was never interested in this game in the first place cause Ubisoft games suck, Blood Dragon excluded.

I hope this game flops so it fucks up Ubisofts plan to only make franchises lol.

tend to avoid a lot of sandbox games, unless they have rockstars budget (and V didnt have THAT much content) they tend to have miles of miles of unused world, ahh good ol mouse lag hiding the fact these consoles have terrible input latency since 2005+

As someone on /pol/ pointed out, a lot of it's features seems like a data-mining operation in order to figure out what kind of people are playing their games.

Far Cry 4 shouldn't even exist, Blood Dragon 2 needs to be a full length release.

I didn't like Blood Dragon that much except for the art style, music, and some of the smaller improvements like no fall damage. Otherwise, it felt boring, the weapons all felt bad, and the missions were bland. I think I would've enjoyed it more if it wasn't open world, Far Cry 3 burnt me out on that style at the time.

Just to quote from my post in the Ubisoft thread.

Why does Watch Dogs have a review embargo till release day?
Also day one release patch...
What is this smelling like?

Someone has already got their hands on the xbox one version and has stated that the graphics are comparable to Gta on xbox 360. Of course Ubisoft says this is false and to dismiss it.

As soon as I read it had the review embargo that put me right off, I no longer preorder games any more no matter what stupid "bonuses or TF2 shit hats" you get.

Oh boy. After seeing the upper youtube video I laughed my ass off and sighed at the end.
Man this is just what I expected pixel for pixel.
And believe me or not, I expected this to be the end result ever since we were shown the first E3 video they claimed to be real time gameplay, which was obviously prerendered stuff.
I enjoyed the first ever prerendered fake gameplay video and I always knew that is all that I will ever get out of this game and I had absolutely no hype or naivety to believe it will be more than a dumbed down game with scripted linear gameplay.
To find that it's also bug ridden to this extent, I am quite amazed because one my my real life mates that works at ubisoft qc, told me half an year ago that while this game is crap on ps3 and 360, it appeared to be really good looking on ps4 and xbone and he also told me that pc was the same build as the ps4 and xbone.
This game has kept my mate indoors working and not going out for a beer for the last year or so.

I wouldn't call it prerendered stuff, but effects they clearly removed to suit the console fanny boys hardware.

Like honestly, who cares if the graphics aren't up to par? After playing Blood Dragon and the Mass Effect Trilogy last year, I just don't get excited about graphics anymore.

Watch_Dogs really doesn't look that different than other games, anyway. Franchises need their own art direction, everything now looks generic.

Games need more color, fantasy style neon lighting, surreal environments, and oh yeah, COOL LOOKING CHARACTERS.

My friend was on acid and we were hanging out the other day. Blood Dragon and Afterlife baby, shit looked so cash to him.

Oy vey my realism is gay!

I would love to trip again, haven't done it in years, a 4 player in Golden Eye on the N64 is hilarious while tripping balls, everyone just running around laughing at each other instead of shooting. I did a lot of acid when I was in my teens, but now I'm worried I won't come back if I do it again. I watched my brother play Watch Dogs for a bit on his pc, I think it looks shit, he says it plays shit. Sleeping Dogs is the best of these type of games so far.

I've always wanted to do acid but I'll never be able to. Bums me out.

You get really manic if you're bipolar and unmedicated. And lithium + LSD = seizure city, so I can't take it when I'm medicated.

It seriously makes me sad. I would love nothing more than to try acid just once. I've been around people on it so many times and I just love the energy they give off, and the ideas they come up with.

Watch_Dogs has a nice and interesting gameplay, but also dozens of glitches and bugs. My favorite glitch is when you suddenly falling through the floor and then drowning in the water. Our designer even did a comics strip about it:

I watched an ad for this. The graphics in the ad are way better than the in-game screens, lol. ;)
