[November 26, 2014, 04:39:12 AM] Tedakin: Yeah but for a company that already got ripped 2 weeks ago for releasing before reviews, it's ballsy. I thought the Crew beta was kinda bad. It felt like Forza Horizon but way worse.

[November 26, 2014, 04:30:44 AM] Sworen: I thought they were keeping to release not before, still shady, giving the excuse of full multiplayer experience

Correction on something, I misunderstood Matt when he asked about playing nintendo stuff on the pc. I didn't know he meant Wii U specially. Although I am sure at some point someone will find a way to make that work too.

Don't worry about it. Matt's question about playing Nintendo Wii U games on a PC was stupid.

Whoa.

How does "Watch Dogs" connect to "Assassin's Creed?"


If you've been reading the description of "Watch Dogs" while thinking, "This sounds an awful lot like a modern-day 'Assassin's Creed,'" you're not alone. "Watch Dogs" has a lot in common with Ubisoft's time-hopping open-world series, and if you paid very close attention during "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag," you may know why.

In theory, "Watch Dogs" is essentially what you'd get if you brought the "Assassin's Creed" franchise into the present. Like the "Assassin's Creed" protagonists, Aiden explores a meticulously accurate city, securing individual neighborhoods and completing side missions as he goes. The game allows (and occasionally demands) parkour platforming, precise stealth and intense combat for a variety of plot missions and side quests. The setting is mostly realistic, while the story is steeped in conspiracy and intrigue.

The biggest "Assassin's Creed" connection, however, is right from one of the games. Although "Assassin's Creed IV" takes place mostly between 1715 and 1722, players also spend a bit of time in today's near future, exploring the offices of Abstergo, a puppet corporation controlled by the villainous Templars.

After completing the game's main story, players can hack into the computer of Olivier Garneau, one of Abstergo's higher-ups. Olivier receives a message from the Blume Corporation, offering to install the CtOS operating system at Abstergo's facilities.

Depending on Olivier's response, this could be the beginning of a strong connection between "Watch Dogs" and "Assassin's Creed." Either way, it's direct confirmation that the two games take place in the same fictional universe. If "Watch Dogs" becomes as successful a franchise as "Assassin's Creed," then expect to see more connections between the two series.

A final piece of food for thought: One of the primary themes of "Watch Dogs" is what happens when unethical, powerful collectives can track your location and movements at all times. The Observatory, sought by the Templar Laureano de Torres y Ayala in "Assassin's Creed IV," posed exactly the same question. Fans could discuss the parallels for years to come.
