Didn't work at all yesterday. If it happens again to me today I'll try it again with no expectations.
Sure, it’s easy enough for us to call our game highly anticipated. After all, we saw the copious comments from the community and amongst the media – all that lovely chatter about how everyone can’t wait to get their paws on Watch Dogs. And, after a modest delay, we couldn’t wait to deliver Ubisoft Montreal’s innovative take on the open-world adventure. The good news: You really meant it. In its first 24 hours of availability, Watch Dogs sold more copies than any previous title in Ubisoft’s history!
^^ This probably would explain to a certain degree some of the issues perhaps. A demand and spike on servers.
I'm just curious because after watching the cut scenes and reading about the story it does just look like a reskinned assassins creed/GTA. I held off on getting it because neither of those games interest me.
Any game like this is going to be called a GTA clone. There's plenty of "non GTA" gameplay elements in this not the least of which is real stealth that actually works.
