Watch Out For 1: X

Watch Out For 1: X

For my very first Watch Out For audio edition I chose a Wii U exclusive and JRPG that had me salivating at first sight, "X" by Monolith Soft.  Combing open world and Sci-Fi elements in a similar way Bethesda does was the goal of this project...all good things and the primary reason for my interest.  Oh yeah, giant mech combat too.

Watch Out For: The Division

Watch Out For: The Division

At the end of last year’s E3, the one title that remained stuck in everyone’s minds was the surprise reveal of the new IP Watch Dogs.  Ubisoft was going for a similar effect this year with the reveal of Tom Clancy’s: The Division.  They set the scene with an intro talking about the possibility of a deadly pandemic outbreak, spread around by the transfer of money on a day that cash is exchanged more than usual, black Friday.  The government responds by putting into effect Directive 51, giving them the power to protect and preserve the last remnants of society.  You, the player, are an agent of The Division whose responsibility is to restore order in the nearly abandoned neighborhoods of New York City.

Watch Out For: Watch_Dogs

For the next several weeks I plan to do my Watch Out For blurb on stuff that came out of E3, as there is plenty to cover.  Plus, who at this point isn't so excited for the next gen systems that they can't sleep?  I know I am. 

Watch_Dogs was one of the darlings of last year’s E3, and had quite a strong showing this year too, appearing on both Ubisoft and PlayStation’s press conferences.  To be quite honest, I got sick of seeing it.  It needs to be released…soon….so I can play it.  A sentiment echoed by the gaming community especially now with all the negative press surrounding the vile NSA and it’s spying on everyday citizens.
