Here we go again. I'm at a preview of a big game coming from Ubisoft, hoping that it's going to be as terrific as it seems. I can be skeptical, but I'll be damned if I can cease being optimistic. Watch Dogs is looking and sounding good.
We're in a conference room. Same one where a different team at Ubisoft Montreal talked up Assassin's Creed III rather impressively a year ago. A few of this new game's creators are there. One is going to play the game on a PS4 controller. Two are going to talk about it. Me, Brian Crecente from Polygon, and a bunch of Canadian reporters are there sitting around a long table. The gameplay will wait.
