Robert’s Pick: It’s been nearly two years since Ubisoft demoed Watch_Dogs at their E3 presser. At the time, I was slightly skeptical of the footage, which seemed to transcend the capabilities of even a high-end rig. Thirteen months later, the game is here and beyond the intermittent loss of an underscore in the title and a few exploding windows, it looks like Ubisoft Montreal is going to deliver on their promises. As a fan of city skulking and sandbox-style gameplay, Chi_town better get ready for my week-long rampage.

Gonçalo’s Pick: During its initial reveal, Watch Dogs was lauded by critics and the gaming community as a defining moment in creating the next generation experience. Since then the game has seen its fair share of controversy, mostly centered on a downgraded graphical output. Regardless, all trailers point towards a solid execution of a unique concept, so color me excited.

  2. Lord Voldemort

    I searched too, but I guess I made a typo.

  3. I might get Mind Zero and Monster Monpiece if the reviews aren’t too bad.

  4. ahhhh the ‘what to buy’ lists are gonna get shorter as we go into the summer months!

  5. Watch Dogs for me this week.

  6. Monster Monpiece. Im getting my wrists ready. 😉

  7. Monpiece has me curious. Ill wait until I hear some reactions first, though.

  8. Saw Watch Dogs pc screenshots. Man those look amazing. Picking it up for sure.

  9. A Story About My Uncle sounds like an after school special about molestation.

  10. Disappointed that Namco is going the pay-to-win route. This is the end of the House that Pac built.

  11. Wash Dogs for me.

  12. Someone has the know the price for Monster Monpiece, right?

  13. What version of Street Fighter Alpha 2 is ported to the Wii U? If it’s the arcade one, I’ll bite.
