Watch Dogs? More like Discount Dogs

Watch Dogs

Before the release of Watch DogsI was all in a tizzy, unsure if I actually wanted to buy the game. Heck, I wasn’t 100% sure the game would be worth playing.

I suspect part of this was due to fatigue brought on by the unbelievable amount of trailers, dev videos, ads and walkthroughs, most of which stemmed from the same 20 minutes of gameplay. This game’s market presence was overwhelming, which is odd when you consider all the delays.

And the staleness of the Assassin’s Creed series, also by Ubisoft, didn’t instill a whole lot of confidence in me that they’d be able to draw my interest with a new IP.

After much ballyhoo, I decided to wait until the reviews rolled out, and use them to make my decision. Needless to say, I wasn’t convinced it was a game worth purchasing, especially when I’d have to plunk down $60 to own it.

Still, I kept my eye on it, hoping it might receive a reduction in price that made it a more handsome prospect.

Although it took some months, that day finally arrived yesterday when it was on sale on Xbox Marketplace for roughly $40. And I bought the shit out of it.

As of writing, the game has yet to fully download. Even when it does finish, I’ll still need to make sure my actual dog is occupied by a toy and not looking to raise hell before I can sit down and enjoy this bad boy.

Once I actually play the game, I’ll let you know if the sky is still blue and 2+2 in fact equals 4, or if my world is forever changed.

Stay tuned.

In the meantime, enjoy this:
