    Yeah that and Watch_Dogs 1 are two of the most cited examples along with newer releases but it also goes back to Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and also Far Cry 2 in 2009

    [​IMG]

    The XBox One and PS4 disparity is at least partially explained by if I'm not remembering it wrong a uncertainty for the hardware and overall power of these also compared to early development kits and the finalized hardware though that was for the first year and then this has continued into Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege and other also often quoted examples though it's not just Ubisoft.

    Bethesda at least among the bigger publishers might be one of the few doing more straightforward media releases at least for Elder Scrolls and Fallout to where the E3 videos can even garner reactions for why the game is looking worse than other showcased titles although there's been a few exceptions such as Oblivion splicing in clearly CG footage particularly for Uriel Septim and the Hero of Kvatch segments of the early reveal trailer.

    Will be interesting to see what Ubisoft reveals for Watch_Dog Legion (Legion of playable NPC?) even if the visuals might be spruced up for presentation and the scene probably really scripted as long as it's not some short teaser or entirely cutscene material it could show part of how it plays and what it offers though later proper gameplay videos will fill in the rest. :D

    Looking forward to it even as Ubisoft is shifting to GAAS with Watch_Dogs 2 as one of the last releases before the full shift to year or even multi-year support bit of a shame for patches for that game and continued content releases and updates but it also shifted gameplay focus and priorities so that will also be curious to see what Legion has on offer either now with E3 or later on with other videos, previews and this sort of thing plus the trend of some popular streamer and early access for promo purposes and what else has changed over the years ha ha.

    Looks interesting. Maybe the best one Ubisoft showed there.

    I don't know what to think about this. First London... dark, cloudy, rainy and then playing as any character (or at least 18 as shown in the gameplay trailer), which I don't like either. If you can play as random character, they will never be able to build interesting story around it and no storyline character progression. I would rather play as one very well polished character with a lot of customization and good story...

    Unrelated to the thread but every time I read your username I have the Quake 3 Arena voice over go through my head saying haste, which is weird because I don't think he ever said haste.... or maybe there was a character called haste and that's why my brain says it in the Q3A voice over... I can't remember.. it's weird.. xD

    If I remember correctly the Q3A announcer says "haste", "quad damage" or "invisibility" every time you pick up the power-up.

    Yeah that was something alright.

    My granny what a big *gun* you have. :p Hah ha.
    Suppose there's someone I can use as a proper protagonist stand-in for this recruit anyone feature. Wonder what else they'll be showing of the game but the trailer here seemed OK after all.

    That e3 demo looked like it was running two 2080ti's in sli with raytracing on. I just can't see this running on the X1 without serious performance issues. Downgrade time again.

    The granny reminds me of Helen Mirren in the movie Red considering they both have the same kind of job and both are little old ladies.

    I didnt like it initially, but more they showed demo more i liked it. Feels like a mix of gta/saints row. Throw some dark british humour in there and it might work quite well. *Proper bellend*

    The granny comes directly from Monty Python's Flying Circus sketch. :D

    edit: maybe you can build up a gang of grannies...

    Love the foggy setting, looks almost Cyberpunkish. This game is on my list. I'll prob try to play as the granny at all times lol.

    Also there are infos about the MP part, apparently it features 4 player coop. Can't wait to see how that turns out.

    No dogs at least for the base game seeing how everything is left up to DLC these days. :p

    From:
    https://www.resetera.com/threads/watch-dogs-legion-does-not-have-any-dogs.122730/

    Which linked to this:
    https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/06/11/watch-dogs-legion-does-not-actually-have-any-dogs-e3-2019

    The AI system of Watch_Dogs 2 did apply to animals but I suppose they could have included them and left the brain touching functionality out though Chi-Chi Wow-Wow (Yeah I can't spell to that breed name without Googling it.) the miniature hacker hot-dog would have been fun.

    Maybe not Granny's home-loaded .50's type of fun but still. :D

    EDIT: (*Google*) Chichiwawa

    Hmm so that's the spelling for it. Not as complex as I was thinking then.
