E3 Trailer Highlights Part 2: Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 3
Oh, man! This entry is a doozy, between high concept gameplay and a f***ing AWESOME trailer, I can barely contain my excitement so let’s cast our all knowing eyes over Watch Dogs.
Mmmm, that’s good espionage! Watch Dogs’ key mechanic is hacking into various electronic systems, either to obtain and control information or to disable the devices at specific times. It was a surprise unveiling at E3 and the developer was visibly excited to be unveiling it. The protagonist, Aiden Pierce, can use any device tied into the city’s central operating system (ctOS) and has access to all sorts of personal information as well as the ability to hack phones and disable traffic lights all from his mobile phone. Combat seems to be your standard cover-based shooting but the hacking mechanic could lead to some fun instances and I can’t wait for it to be released.
And now for something completely awesome.
Did you see that? DID YOU F***ING SEE THAT!? God damn. Watch it again.
Oh, man that’s good. Do I even need to talk about this? I mean, seriously? Connor walks through the American lines and steals a horse, just to charge the British lines and take out ONE GUY. Connor has easily become my favourite Assassin in this series for sheer balls-to-the-wall badassery. Just look at the bit where the redcoat general looks at him in slow-mo with the smoking all around him. I turned into a stereotype in a movie theatre at that point. “Aw, dude. You are so dead! He’s coming for you and you are going to die!” Damn. Love it, can’t wait for it, take all my money.
I’ll be back soon with more of my trailer highlights from E3! Stay tuned!
