How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2014 come out?

Want to feel old? January 2014 was just about one year ago. That's one whole season of a TV show or a complete Earth's orbit around the sun. Way back then--I can hardly remember it in the shadow of the god awful year--the Des...

Watch Dogs comes to Wii U tomorrow with some of the DLC

Kind of ironic that after months of delays, Watch Underscore Dogs is finally coming to Wii U with no "Bad Blood," am I right folks?  Ubisoft's open world trench coater and the last M-rated game it will release for t...

Watch Dogs: Bad Blood goes punk, features co-op play and new modes

Say what you will about Ubisoft, but they've got a knack for trying something a little different for their DLC offerings. After the incredibly successful launch of Watch Dogs back in May, it seemed like they've been biding th...

Watch Dogs will be Ubisoft's final M-rated Wii U game

Watch Dogs is better with Team Fortress 2 characters

STBlackST did a terrific job with this Team Fortress 2 short, Hat_Dogs. It's a riff on Watch Dogs' "hack everything" mentality using characters we actually like. Impressive, and -- with the inclusion of that bread line -- timely.

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield
by Max Scoville

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgehog vomit. This week, we have dog urine, and copious amounts of cat blood. Specifically, Garfield The Cat blood. I like cats, but Garfield is horrible. Please just watch the video so I can stop typing.

Review: Watch Dogs photo
Review: Watch Dogs
by Chris Carter

What I love most about my job is that I get to test out everything in its final, ready to deliver form, free of the binds of hype. For what feels like half my lifetime, Ubisoft has been trying to convince us that Watch Dogs will change everything. It doesn't.

If you come in expecting a polished high-budget venture on par with the Grand Theft Auto series, you're going to be disappointed. But if you think of it like a more arcadey take on the open world genre, you'll have a lot more fun.

Oh, and you can totally become a giant Spider-Tank and blow people up.

Ubisoft messes with people and causes mayhem for Watch Dogs skit

Ubisoft is hitting the marketing campaign pretty hard for next week's release of Watch Dogs, and this hidden camera video is the latest product of that. Regular folks looking for a cheap cell phone repair unknowingly hack streetlights, cars, and an ATM in Los Angeles. It's all fun and games until things take a turn and the authorities show up looking for answers.

Everything you need to know about Watch Dogs in nine minutes
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

We're officially two weeks away from the release of Ubisoft's first major AAA launch of the year with Watch Dogs. We've been bombarded with screens, trailers, and so many different collector's editions. So I'm glad the game is finally nearing release, if only because I'm tired of the media barrage.

At this point I just want to play it. All this pre-hype is killing my hype! Of course, if you're still hyped up then you should watch this nine-minute video giving you the 101 on what to expect out of the game.
