Everything You Need To Know About Watch_Dogs In 3 Minutes

The initial demonstration showed a game trying to do provocative and original things with the popular open-world genre. For months, fans speculated about how the game would play and whether or not it would dig deep into the nation’s anxieties about surveillance. In 2013, Ubisoft partnered with Sony on a Watch Dogs and PlayStation 4 bundle, positioning Watch Dogs as the first major next-gen game. But a delay, one month before scheduled release, bumped Watch Dogs into 2014. Our own Brian Crecente recently found out why the game went into hiding.

With Watch Dogs available on May 27th — in so many pre-order forms — we thought it’d be worth while recapping this story of an expensive new franchise’s quest for existence. Here’s everything you need to know. (Watch on YouTube)

Also, here’s a quick car chase pulled from our time with Watch Dogs. Give it a watch!

Infamous: Second Son Review: Drain You

I struggled with feeling let down that Second Son isn’t a brilliant shift for action games. My small disappointments come mostly as a result of undeveloped potential. It had a chance to be a superhero game about more serious issues as well as a showcase for the power of the new generation of consoles. Instead, Second Son is more of the Infamous I already loved last generation, prettier, with more powers and better writing. But Second Son still kept me excited to discover each new power set and happy to shoot fireballs at fascist thugs long into the night. Maybe it’s not so bad to just let go of responsibility and blow stuff up once in a while.
