A new Watch Dogs trailer unanimously disappoints

1 min read

It doesn't look like this

Watch Dogs is one of the darlings of the next generation –  as everything we’ve seen so far has looked incredible and something that simply cannot be done on the current console hardware that we have today. Until now

Ubisoft has released a new video showcasing the real life comedienne Aisha Tyler and I have to say it really doesn’t impress.

Now granted Watch Dogs is also releasing on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 so maybe this is a video from those platforms, but why would Ubisoft do that? It doesn’t really make sense.

Now we all know YouTube isn’t the bastion of intelligence when it comes to their comments but take a loot at some of the responses and tell me you don’t actually agree with them.

rayhiros – That looks more like? Saints Row the third or GTA 4 but not like Watch Dogs.
creamgravy1 – Looks like it was recorded on the 360? with the medium/low looking graphics. And… A random video like it was SR4.
tralivaliization – wtf did i just? watch

But then another commentator states that he gets the joke here so maybe this is part of a bigger thing? I don’t know Aisha from a bar of soap. Has she maybe been making fun of bad graphics in games recently?

Can anyone explain?

    Yeah, probably 360 / PS3. Either way, this game is actually not on my hype list… I’ll pick up a used copy one day if I have time…

        She voices Lana on Archer – and if you haven’t watched it, there is something very wrong with you 😉

          Then there is something wrong with me.

          Watched Arrow. Does that count?

          Will look out for it


          • Trevor Davies

            That counts. I was pleasantly surprised by that, it’s far better than I expected.

            it was indeed. A far cry from the comic book scenario, i.e. has family left, but hey, was a load of fun

    I am not one for graphics and shiny things!! If they can pull off half the things they have shown so far I will still get this game!! I will buy it just to find out how he got so good and why he is being hunted… Sucker for a good story I suppose!!


  5. Brady miaau

    Yeah, I get the joke.

    Like Colonial Marines? Duke Nuken 3d or whatever?

    So I’m looking to get this on PS4 and so on. Hopefully someone ‘clipped’ the wings on this trailer or filtered it through current consoles as mentioned. Still going to get the game though.

      This is also the only title that is making me want a next gen console!! If I don’t see that big a difference in this gen and the next in this game then I will stick to this gen for 2 years and wait for the slim consoles…

      miskien, ja

    Tin Foil Hat Time: Could this be current gen and was the graphics deliberately downgraded so that gamers will be more inclined to buy the Next Gen version

    Always better to wait for reviews when it comes to Triple A imo. Too many bloody promises out there, and too little delivery.


    • Admiral Chief Minion 47

      July 31, 2013 at 08:33

      Well said dude, well said.

      I wait on average 6 months to a year to pick up a AAA title


      • Zubayr Bhyat

        July 31, 2013 at 09:06

        That’s reasonable. 🙂 You can usually pick things up far cheaper 6 months down the line, especially on console.

      Reviews don’t count either these days. Better to demo it somewhere and judge for yourself.


      • Zubayr Bhyat

        July 31, 2013 at 14:00

        That is pretty much the case these days, some reviews however are really good.

    Bloody hell if this is what it looks like on current gen!!! stuff that!! I will wait for my shiny ps4 and then get the game! looks so bland! and shitty. its like watch dogs next gen is mouth watering steak t bone steak, and current gen is a shitty ham burger from the local cafe down the road. SImply leaving you un satisfied

    This thing shows nothing. They must have started developing it one hour before they released it.


    • TiMsTeR1033

      July 31, 2013 at 09:11

      nah its just how crap the current gen version is of watch dogs! bring on next gen!

    Who is the brave soul tasked to click on video links with the word dog in the description?

    I’ll be afraid of stumbling upon a video of Pretoria women practicing her dog loving hobby or worse a CoD trailer.


    • Wtf101

      July 31, 2013 at 11:42

      So you’d rather watch a woman shagging dogs than a COD trailer if you had to choose between the two?

    ” I don’t know Aisha from a bar of soap.” Seriously? Man, you *have* to get hold of some Archer, like, STAT! That show is brilliant. The best comparison I can think of is if Southpark and Austin Powers had a baby together, Archer is what the resulting offspring would turn out like.
