    On Watch Dogs, I've been deep in debate about buying it. I've got a gift card burning a hole in my wallet.

    Normally, I probably wouldn't consider it. But the snail's pace at which games are being released has been starting to get to me. Given what I've read here, I've got more motivation to hold off.

    What's the next big release? Destiny in September?

    Honestly, for $60 you could probably buy a handful of better games to keep you busy until the Fall releases come out (at which point Watchdogs will probably be significantly cheaper).

    September
    Destiny (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3) - September 9
    Dark Souls II - Crown of the Ivory King DLC (PS3, 360, PC) - September 24

    October
    Skylanders: Trap Team (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U, Wii, 3DS) - October 5
    Alien: Isolation (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PC) - October 7
    Dragon Age: Inquisition (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PC) - October 7
    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC) - October 7
    NBA 2K15 (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC) - October 7
    Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (PS3, 360, PC) - October 14
    Battlefield Hardline (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, PC) - October 21
    The Evil Within (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, PC) - October 21
    Evolve (Xbox One, PS4, PC) - October 21

    I'll say this for Watch Dogs:

    1. The explosions are absolutely gorgeous.
    2. There's a ton of optional side content. It's not all great, but there's a f-ton of it.
    3. For a 3rd person open world game, the shooting is surprisingly good.

    Didn't see anything that makes me want to go out a buy an XB1. Multiplats, CGI trailers and DLC "First On XBOX" isn't enough to convince people

    The only announcement that made me really happy was GTAV on PS4, since I missed it when it first came out.

    No new announcements that really got me going. I did get into the Battlefield Hardline beta and will be trying that out for a bit, but it strikes me as Battlefield Theft Auto. Not overly inspiring.

    NHL 15 looks pretty good.

    Played a little more Watch Dogs last night...it's...okay. May need to stop focusing on the campaign and tool around with the other content.

    Had no idea what I was doing other than racking up a nice kill count before the server crashed

    Still have some skepticism, but DAI is a good looking game.

    Thanks for posting was going to go track down a gameplay vid that I figured would be out there. Actually been playing DA2 a bit recently. Again glad to see mixing the more tactical elements (turn based) if one wants to.

    hope it isn't delayed

    _________

    How about some old school Rainbow Six? Would love to see this without the fake dialogue. Not sure if this is real, or just a target render

    What I can't tell from that Rainbow Six clip is whether it utilizes a cover mechanic the way R6V 1&2 did. That cover mechanic made the game, and was a big reason why the new Deus Ex felt so good (one of the R6V developers went to Eidos Montreal to make DX).

    Doc announcing 15 is going to be awesome. I will play an unhealthy amount of NHL 15.

    Anyone here play FIFA 14 online for PS4?

    Doc's announcing NHL 15? Ugh. Guess I'm playing that game on mute.

    They should let Brian Engblom and Dave Schrader do the game.

    Got an invite to play Destiny's Alpha from PS4. Only played for about 15 minutes, but seems fun. Anyone else try it yet?
