    No, his mom made him turn it off after she saw the "may contain content inappropriate for children" warning.

    It did look interesting. I'll keep my eye on it for sure.

    It's an interesting premise, if done well. I could see it getting really repetitive, but I definitely want to get my hands on it.

    I am worried about the driving. A bad driving mechanic will kill this game.

    It has a very GTA look to it, but it's a Ubisoft title.

    Couldn't get into the closed booth/theatre for this game. Press only or some such.

    Ubisoft has the worst/least exploitative outfits for their booth babes, too.

    Ok, met a guy named Rus McLaughlin. He writes for a game info thing called Gamesbeat, part of anoter site. Look him up. He's doing Watch Dogs for that site.

    From what he's seen so far, it's a branching decisions game, not an open universe. Obviously it's a shooter/hacking game. But that's about it. The game was a surprise bomb, so not much is known, but dude should have some info on it by Thursday/Friday, after the meeting he's going to on Thursday. If you don't hear of anything else before then, throw the dude some traffic. Good guy.

    Can't link from my phone, so if someone can find his site and link it, that'd be cool.

    ?
    I'm not saying there is simply driving elements in the game, it looks and plays like GTA.

    I have this free with the purchase of my video card. Still have yet to download it... But planning on it this weekend. Looks like it could be a good time waster.

    Wow, I didn't watch that till now.. I'm definitely glad that I didn't pay anything for my copy. I'm sure I'll still have some fun with it while I am still waiting for GTA5 to be released for PC.

    It wasn't like I was going to buy this anytime soon but these things don't look like they will be able to fix them.

    How come Rock* seems to be the only ones that can pull this off? They are failing at things Rock* perfected back in San Andreas.

    Do they reuse their same engine, or at least upgrade it as they go on (like the Unreal one)? I was watching a video for this game on Steam last week not knowing much about the game and when I heard them say "all new game engine" I thought well that isn't necessarily a good thing.

    Yeah, I think they are on their third or fourth engine since GTAIII.

    Is that true? I haven't found anything online stating anything but guesses. And with those I have seen November, 2014 and some dates in 2015.
