Video: Watch Dogs' Jonathan Morin talks delays, multiplayer, and the franchise's future
by Max Scoville

After almost two years of wringing my sweaty little hands and looking at screenshots like a schlub, I finally got to take Watch Dogs for a spin last week. After hacking into steam pipes and blowing up cars for two hours, I took a moment to chat with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin.

Watch Dogs multiplayer video shows how you'll watch dogs, dog

Because of Ubisoft's persistent insistence on "blending single- and multiplayer experiences," this Watch Dogs video doesn't so much show you a multiplayer mode, but rather what you can expect from others as you play the...

Game Music Lullabies album Prescription for Sleep coming soon

Sweet slumber comes with game music, I've found. I've always had sleeping soundtracks to listen to when I'm traveling or just need to chill out. I love to sleep to orchestral JRPGs, arranged albums, and 16-bit classics, and I...

Were you player one or player two?

Seven things I loved about playing Watch Dogs photo
Seven things I loved about playing Watch Dogs
by Alessandro Fillari

The delay of Ubisoft Montreal's new open world IP, Watch Dogs, surprised many. With only a month away from launch, and a rather bold marketing push for the holiday season, Ubisoft appeared ready, but then we found it wasn't. At all. It's not too often you see publishers holding back a game's release to further development, and it's certainly admirable of them to be so honest.

"The game wasn't finished," said lead game designer Danny Belanger rather bluntly. "You see all the content we have, there was a lot of different parts of it that were not at the level we wanted -- so it was hard, there was a lot of others reasons too, but at the end of the day, we didn't want to release the game in state we weren't happy with."

With its May release approaching, Ubisoft is ready to unveil its upcoming open world action title, and the publisher invited the press to get plenty of hands-on time with the game. As you can tell with title, I came away pretty pleased, though I have some reservations still.
