More about Watch Dogs…

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has an interview up today about the game that sheds some more light on things. In it, we find out that there will be some cool multiplayer stuff in the game, which I didn’t know from the videos, and we get some hints about the main character, Pearce, and his motivations.

My Life as a King

I’m having a lot of fun with the game. Last night I almost bought some of the extra stuff, even though I don’t think I’m far enough along in the game yet to take advantage of any of it. But in almost buying it, I looked more closely at the descriptions (in the game) of what the content packs contain.

Metaplace Announced

Raph Koster and Areae have just unveiled their big project, Metaplace.

A couple years ago, I thought I would only be interested in the PS3, but now I have an Xbox 360, and the reasons I have to even want to buy a PS3 when its price drops are dwindling (the remaining ones being Final Fantasy XIII, LittleBigPlanet, free online play, Blu-ray, and maybe Home… we’ll see on that one). Then I didn’t think I’d pay the extra for Xbox LIVE Gold, but when my friend and I wanted to be able to play Marvel: Ultimate Alliance together and I found myself shelling out fifty bucks for a year of it.
