Watch_Dogs Week

watch dogs D6 As most of you know, one of the most anticipated games of the year, Watch_Dogs, just came out earlier this week and most of us here on TMG pre-ordered the game and already have it. Which means We've got a bunch of Watch_Dogs content in store for you this week.

Migoy captured and streamed his first hour of the game for a quick look as well as some clips from said stream. Arlie's been streaming a lot of his playthrough of the PS4 version of the game on our twitch channel and has made some clips of his own. We are also going to talk about our impressions of Watch_Dogs this weekend for episode 34 of the TMG Podcast. Watch_Dogs is currently available for all platforms (except for the WiiU at the moment) at Datablitz, so if you haven't already, go check it out.

Here's our Watch_Dogs quick look

Here are some clips taken from our Watch_Dogs livestreams

Ubisoft confirms Watch Dogs resolution and FPS for next gen consoles


WD Aiden Excited for the Watch Dogs release this May 27? Awesome. Getting the next-gen version? Well, you better sit down for this, Ubisoft confirms the resolution and fps for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 

It was weird enough that no word was given earlier on  the specs with a game already a few weeks away. But Ubisoft has finally confirmed that Watch Dogs will run in 900p on PlayStation 4 and 792p on Xbox One, with both version of the game running at 30 fps.

Is this an issue? Not really, resolution and Frames Per Second is only a small chunk of what makes a game. But when we see advertising seen below, people will start flipping tables. Oh Sony...

But they have taken back their claims of the game running on 60 FPS and on 1080p resolution. With all this confusion to make the game sell, it's about time Ubisoft has given the official word.

Watch Dogs launches on May 27 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC. The Wii U version of the game is still coming but will be released on a later date.

Is it disappointing to see it not run on 60FPS? Will that affect your buying decision? Or the resolution? Sound off on the comments below.

Delayed: Watch Dogs and Driveclub pushed to 2014

delayed cover This was bound to happen. We are entering a next generation of gaming, developers will feel the pressure and will be forced to ask for more time. This sadly has happened to two titles planned to be launch titles- Watch Dogs, a multi-platform modern sandbox and PS4's exclusive racer Driveclub, both pushed for a 2014 release. 

First up is Watch Dogs. Why the push? Ubisoft simply needs the extra time in polishing the game. It's a new IP, I get it. I actually want this to be a new franchise to succeed for the European publisher. What's disappointing is that this is one of the big titles that would make me consider either a PS4 or a Xbox 360. With my PC's current setup, I won't be able to hit that extra high setting, so I was considering the early jump for next-gen to experience Watch Dogs in the best quality possible. Now without Watch Dogs, I'm finding it hard to justify going day one with next-gen consoles.

Next title is Driveclub, which has been push from its November 15 release to an early 2014 release. This was another disappointment because this stunning racing game was planned to be the first free game PS4 game for PlayStation Plus members. Since it was delayed, Sony replaces it with Contrast, Complusion's puzzle platformer of light and shadow free to download on November 15. Sony is also throwing in a "Open Weekend" trial of Killzone: Shadow Fall for PlayStation Plus members on December 28 to 29.

Delays are a pain but again- It's a next-gen console launch. We're anxious to get our hands on the consoles, while launch title developers are freaking out because launch is only weeks away.

Watch Dogs is now placed on a Spring 2014 release for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. While Driveclub is now on an early 2014 release exclusively for PlayStation 4.

Watch Dogs gets a 14-minute gameplay walkthrough video


WatchDogs_Loop Privacy Breach-noscale Lately, Ubisoft has been quiet with regards to their upcoming IP Watch Dogs. I actually lost my excitement for this game thanks to all the E3 buzz and next-gen talk. A new video was released showing a 14-minute gameplay walking through the dynamic events that takes place in the world. But the one aspect of this video that kinda placed Watch Dogs back into my radar has to be their multiplayer beingsomewhat integrated into the single player campaign. You'll know what I mean when you check the video below.

I can already see the many trolls that will show up in this game. Watch Dogs is a launch title for both the Xbox One (November 22) and PS4 (November 15), but it will also be available on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and of course PC on November 19.  I might just pick up the PC version of the game. It does spark my interest, but I have this gut feeling that this won't be as good as everybody is expecting it to be.

New Watch Dogs trailer reveals release date

WatchDog_hero Ubisoft's newest IP, Watch Dogs, now has a released date. Hacking will commence on November 22, 2013 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and most likely the new Xbox Microsoft is planning to reveal this May. 

Watch Dogs is an open world adventure game that revolves around the players ability to use any electronic device to their advantage. Be it security cameras, people's ATM's, their phones, even fuse boxes, all can be hacked by a press of a they say.

Collector's Edition


The collector's edition for Watch Dog's is the Dedsec Edition which contains the usual amount of loot you'd expect from such package, you know, big figurines and all. The special edition includes:

-A 23cm Aiden Pearce Figurine -Steelbook -DedSec Collector box -Watch_Dogs Artbook: artworks and illustrations that inspired the game -Original soundtrack of the game -Watch_Dogs map of Chicago -Set of 4 collectible cards: discover Watch_Dogs iconic characters through augmented reality -Set of 3 exclusive badges

Of course, with how the Philippines work, there won't be any confirmation at this point if local retail will accept any pre-orders for the Dedsec Edition/ Information will most likely come a month before release, so look out for that.

I'm considering Watch Dogs as the first ever revealed, and possibly released next-gen title from a third-party publisher and developer. The game does look amazing, but the big question is how big of a difference will the version running on current-gen systems like the PS3 is to the version running on the PlayStation 4, the next Xbox, and Wii U?
