For gamers, this coming fall will be an open-world aficionados dream come true. First off we have Grand Theft Auto 5 coming out on PS3 and Xbox 360(PC version unconfirmed as of now but things can change) followed by Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag for those previously mentioned systems, Wii U, PC, PS4 & XboxOne. Those two games alone can provide a considerable amount of enjoyment if you delve into what they have to offer, making the price well worth what you receive from what precious time you put in.
However one game seems to hold a huge amount of allure for me and that is Watch_Dogs(coming to PS3,Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, PS4, & XboxOne). The whole aspect and tagline of the game that "Everything is Connected" cannot be ignored nor can it be understated. Being able to control/manipulate your surroundings such as traffic lights, road pylons, cameras, cellular phones and other electronic gadgetry holds immense promise from a gameplay standpoint.
One aspect of Watch_Dogs gameplay that has me really excited is the companion app capabilities. Now companion apps have tremendous potential when it comes to playing games. I have only used one companion app and it was for Mass Effect 3. Mind you this is most certainly not the best example of how to make a phenomenal addition to your gaming experience but it was a start. Having control of your own character while using the app to jimmy rig some sort of obstacle to help you out in a mission seems tantilizing.
That being said, I truly feel that what is being touted as an extension of your control then where better to play the FULL experience than with a controller that already has a touch screen built in? Rather than having to switch what is physically in your hands at the time of playing why not just get the game that has the most integrated set of controls? The Wii U is a system I am going to buy one day and I sincerly believe Nintendo should be doing there best to promote that this is going to be a fantastic game to play on the Wii U.
I know that there has not been any footage released for the Wii U controls but that still doesn't deter me from holding out hope that this game will be a ton of fun on the Wii U. Hopefully some gameplay for the Wii U is released. Personally I really try to avoid watching any trailers/gameplay footage apart from the first trailer so as to avoid spoiling anything about the game's plot but I will make an exception for that.
So do I have a point? Let me know what you think!?
