Top videos of the week - Watch Dogs, Elder Scrolls Online, Alien Isolation and Project Cars
This week's edition of Wideo Wednesday is a mish mash of some the best footage I've come across. First up is Watch Dogs, with a gameplay discussion and preview from PC Gamer, trouble in paradise? Elder Scrolls Online is next as reviewed by Polygon. Then comes a rather light hearted IGN video of their staff playing a rather NOEPy game - Alien Isolation. Last was a bit of a surprise, even for someone like me who isn't much of a car sim fan, but I couldn't help be in awe of a truly visually stunning gameplay trailer for Project CARS. So kick back and enjoy your extra special midweek break, after all it's Labour Day tomorrow!
Watch Dogs gameplay and preview
[youtube_sc url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYxmtduG7LQ"] With exactly a month to go until release, Tyler from PC Gamer gives us a pretty sobering account of his time playing Watch Dogs at a Ubisoft preview event. Honestly I'm afraid that what was promised in the reveal video in 2012 isn't the final product. After watching this video, consider me cautious. I'll be watching reviews very closely on launch week.
The Elder Scrolls Online Review
[youtube_sc url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rOJT7FZR4k"] This has had a pretty big following considering the pedigree of the franchise, unfortunately things didn't seem to pan out as expected. Watch this review from Polygon to find out exactly why.
How Scary is Alien Isolation?
[youtube_sc url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EWe69vP1pA"] 16 people from IGN are locked up in a room and played Alien: Isolation. Watch the NOEP ensue.
Project CARS - The Ultimate Driver Journey
[youtube_sc url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBLMscFP5ec&feature=youtu.be"] Do you like cars and driving sims? Then this game is probably for you. Project CARS claims to be the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game out there. I could swear I was watching a real life car racing scenario. It truly is quite impressive.
That’s it for this week. What did you think of my picks? Leave a comment and let me know.
