Sometimes I get tempted to go back and just mess around in Watch_Dogs, so it's nice that the core gameplay is improved. However, the cast makes me want to put my head through a wall, so I don't think I'll touch this.

I think it's more like "What old men think Anonymous and 4chan think they are. The Game."
To be fair, it's not like /b/ hasn't more than earned its reputation for being filled with stupid ass kiddies and creepy old men.

Biggest laugh I got out of this was the crack on Bay Area traffic, because it's so true. Our traffic on the freeways is just God-awful! -snip-
Yahtzee continues to be topical about the place where he lives. That always strikes me as a lot funnier than it should be too. Yahtzee: "I hate fans in general and I don't want mine to approach me during my daily life." Yahtzee: Blurts out name of current town he's based in and a bunch of topical stuff about it. Freaking nitwit.

You certainly are good sir! First you call the fifth largest city in America a town, and then try and convince us that you would be able to locate one person out of the other 8.7m with ease. Perhaps you are counting on your magic-wand-phone?

I predicted Watch_Dogs 2 would be shite. I think I'm starting to gain Yahtzee's powers of clairvoyance.

Fuck Ubisoft.

Way to read exactly what I didn't say into my post, because A: The difference between town and city is just a semantic one, arguing over it is pointless. B: I never said that I could find him, nor did I try to convince anyone that I could find him.

Yahtzee's rabid stalker fans who spend hours scouring public records on the other hand, they can find him. Yahtzee gives out enough hints for those people to get a solid start on tracking him down.

Also good job gendering someone with the Japanese word for princess in their name as male.

Called the ridiculous characters from the second I saw the first trailer. Pretty sure I blurted out "Who the fuck talks like that?" Aiden was a touch too melodramatic and annoyingly "gritty" but at least there were a couple halfway decent characters in the first game.

I was really hoping this would be a case of AssCreed II, where they managed to learn well enough from their mistakes to make a really good sequel because the core concept of Watch Dogs is really interesting and relevant and the gameplay was decent fun. More and more though, it just seems like Ubisoft has lost the plot. Oh well.

I quite like Watch_Dogs 2 as a hipster simulator set in the Bay Area. The RC car and the drone add a lot of fun to this title that more than nods its head to, say, Deus Ex.

Bad things to be mentioned: Only one acceptable track on the whole soundtrack, driving vehicles is still arse and I personally lost all interest in the game about halfway through the final efforts, as I felt the game pulled a Harry Potter on me and just refused to stop.
