    Intrusions and CT_Os Mobile challenge are the 2 things that doubled my gaming time on Watch Dogs.

    But the story telling of W_D was cheap and highly disappointing imo: Always on that sad/pathetic register with boring music making it worse.

    They should have engaged Bioware for the story telling lol, or at least read "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" to put out some solid material.


    But right now, i'm definetly done with this game, if Solo campaign with T-Bone was out and done, i would have already uninstall it.

    Yeah... don't see an EA owned studio helping an Ubisoft one with story. ;)
    And besides, personally, BioWare's "story telling" is horribly overrated.

    Ubisoft just announced only 12% of all Watchdogs sales were on PC.

    Tbh, with those low numbers having PC as their 'leading development platform' would be stupid. They were developing for nextGen.

    Maybe the tech was built on PC. The actual game design was tailored made for consoles.

    Yup. Which means having a pc with more powerful tech to make a game running smoothly in more than 1080p is a waste a money. Everything is optimized for 1080p 50Hz. :wanker:

    12% isn't that bad is it ? Considering it was released on 5 different platforms.
    Didn't the PC version of Titanfall account for about 1-2% of total sales and CoD games are always about 1%.

    Yeah, 12% sales for a game released on four other console formats is actually pretty good for the PC in my opinion and it was reported earlier by Ubisoft that the game had shiipped (not sold!) 8 million copies.

    Thankfully that's not the case. The game itself will be the same in any multiplatform versions but higher resolutions and framerate can make a game play better.

    The PS4 version sold 2/3 times as much as the PC sku though, that's gotta count for something in the eyes of Ubisoft.

    Honestly I would not be surprised if Ubisoft drops the PC in the near future.

    And they probably still use only retail sales data and not digital at all. Which accounts for the vast majority of pc sales is digital. PC sales always look like garbage if they only going to count retailer sales data.

    Add in that STEAM doesn't release sales numbers.

    Digital sales are counted. It's clear as day why the PC platform is the least of Ubisoft's priorities.

    They can figure out how many unique uplay accounts play Watch_Dogs even on steam correct?

    thanks Kez
    when i tested the first patch it was with highly borked rig so i didnt get a chance to test really.
    however if i can i'll try re-Download and skip patching as i had it nice before.
    probably be back end of week i got my new parts from amazon due to their good return policy i've experienced.

    Can't force myself to finish the story for some reason. Game becomes boring after a while.

    The game's still fun for me. Just wish the fps wouldn't plummet while driving.

    Anyone know if forcing tessellation on a Radeon makes the game look better? Not sure if I see any difference on the video card in my specs. I'll keep trying and maybe take some screenshots or something to help me tell. And same question for Nvidia users too.

    And a note about screenshots:

    Say you want a screenshot without Aiden in the picture. You can do so in normal camera without using a cheat trainer. Just have Aiden face a tall object that's as high or higher than him like a wall, sign, or even a tree trunk. Then swing the mouse left or right until Aiden goes off the screen. It's for a limited area of rotation but you can adjust Aiden's position and re-swing the mouse to get the screenshot you need.

    Don't compare it to a bag of piss.. seriously.. it's disrespectful to the bag of piss.

    I can think of some fun things to do with a bag of piss..
