Watch Dogs

 

Back at E3, Watch Dogs was promised to be available on the first day of this new-generation of consoles. Then in October, a month before millions of gamers were getting ready to purchase the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Ubisoft unexpectedly notified the press that the game was delayed until spring 2014.

It would be an understatement to assume gamers, including myself, were disappointed. But even more dangerously, Ubisoft was about to take a brunt of the heat from their own shareholders. While recoverable, their shares dropped dramatically.

Today news is breaking, thanks to Laurent Detoc — an executive over at Ubisoft — on why the open-world game was delayed.

During this past E3, Ubisoft debuted a game by showing its fans a demo of an MMO-online-shooter called ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division.’ It was easily one of the show’s most talked about game; however, there wasn’t a heck of a lot of information about it.

At this point, Ubisoft still hasn’t enlightened us about The Division. And today, is really one of the first pieces of new footage we’ve seen since the convention back in June. But if you are expecting a new demo, or gameplay video, then i’m about to burst your bubble.

Watch the impressive video after the jump.

VGX 2013: Dying Light Demo

Screen Shot 2013-12-07 at 6.44.50 PM

The Polish video game studio Techland, who’s work includes Dead Island, showed off a demo of their next game called Dying Light. Much like Dead Island, this next title will be a first-person view, and the idea is to, once again, escape hordes of the undead.

However, unlike their previous work, Dying Light will incorporate movement that resembles parkour action. While watching the demo, the game’s platforming action reminds me a lot like the 2008 underrated game Mirror’s Edge, which was developed by DICE.

Watch the video after the jump.

Tonight will be the 9th time the Video Game Awards will grace the stage, and television. Over the years, the award ceremony has been met with mostly criticism. The negative press seemed to have stemmed from the idea Spike TV was consistently trying to create a hip-award show, something that was similar to the MTV awards, rather than the film industry’s annual staple: the Academy Awards.

Tonight will be different then past shows. This year, the network, along with the producers, are listening to the gamers, or so they say. While the awards will be handed out, the acceptance speech will be prerecorded in 30 second clips, so other content can be the main focus. Viewers can expect to experience more trailers, more news and live demos on stage in an apartment. Basically, it sounds more like E3, with a few awards handed out in-between breaks.

After the jump, we will update all the winners and losers, and all the nominations. We will also be updating the site with each trailer, and live demo that is shown.

Today, a guide, which has the entire map, was leaked on Reddit, which was found by neoGAF user named Pandemic. After the jump, check it out. And oh, SPOILER ALERT!

Xbox One

There’s an online petition right now for Microsoft to bring back their digital rights management policies for the Xbox One. Yes, those same DRM policies that the Internet was so irate with, that Microsoft was forced to announce that they no longer with support DRM on the Xbox One because of the amount of bad press the company was getting.

The protest was setup by David Fontenot from Georgia. I firmly feel that he truly believes that some of the features that Microsoft had promised because of the online requirement that are no longer supported, was not worth the DRM change.

This was to be the future of entertainment,” wrote Fontenot. “A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses. Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox. But consumers were uninformed, and railed against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumers uncertainty.”

While Fontenot had faith in the Xbox One’s original plans, many —  if not most — of his online signatures don’t.
