    Finished Watch Dogs campaign. It got really good and interesting in the end (and very hard). I won't say any spoilers. But I will say things get really lonely when the game ends.

    Hard how? I mean, the one chase was a little rough, but I wouldn't say any of the campaign stuff was legitimately hard.

    I think games should be valued around content - not the average $60 title, but I think Sunset Overdrive will be worth ~$50, then again I think Watch Dogs should only be ~$45.
    That's what sales are for, of course. Really, I can't say that I've played a game worth $60 in a LONG time, maybe the Borderlands games, but even that would be a stretch. Watch Dogs is probably a $45 game like you say (about what I paid), and I'd say it's the game I'd put the highest price tag on so far with the One. Of course, this sounds more like a game rating system, where $60 is equivalent to a 10 in a typical game review or something.

    If we were to do that with the games we have on our Ones, I'd probably go:

    Watch Dogs: $45-50
    Forza 5: $35-40
    Titanfall: $35-40
    Kinect Sports Rivals: $25-30
    Powerstar Golf: $20-25

    In that respect, only Powerstar Golf and Watch Dogs have been worth what I paid for them. Technically, the free Titanfall was as well, but I also maintain that I wouldn't have gotten that game if it wasn't free with my console (REALLY don't like EA, as we all know).

    Yeah, I guess it wouldn't work out because every game company thinks there game cant have a price put on it. I just got FORZA on sale for $6.96 and I wouldn't even ever buy it again, just couldn't pass it up this time lol. Watch dogs would fall under $40 for me to purchase it (but I got it for free) and Titanfall I would pay the $60 and season pass all over again lol. :X strange how different people really are.

    The drinking games in Watch Dogs, THOSE are a pain. I beat the first one really easily, but the second one is a pain. I'm on level 4 of it, and I keep getting killed by having to balance both sticks at the same time...it's infuriating.

    The part where you have to install the virus at 3 locations, I had a dozen cop cars on me and 2 police choppers with snipers and Damien was hacking the city messing with traffic lights and steam pipes. I died maybe 3 times before I could finish it.

    Really? I figured out really quick, stay in a car and go right up to it, just drive around it, hack the helicopter, ride away, throw up a bridge and escape - rinse & repeat. 3 times isn't to bad though.

    I couldn't have done that. Cops and helicopters were shooting at me.

    I've just finished escaping the level-5 pursuit, though I don't know how escaping a scan will go (not going to bother with it right now, this just coincidentally lined up well to try out this time). In case you want to try it, the main things:

    --Stay near traffic, because you're going to need multiple cars (I probably went through 10 or so).
    --Finish the pursuit underground, where the helicopter can't see you.
    --Use a ctOS Blackout, jump the underground bridge, then start praying they don't find you while you're hidden in your car.

    The sniper's a pretty tough guy to shake, and it's nearly-impossible to hit the chopper with a disable while driving. So, like I said, look for a tunnel. I got underground, did a few laps in and out of the tunnel (using blockers to take down some of the extra SWAT SUVs), then I jumped a bridge and hit a Blackout so they couldn't pursue.

    I've had a few people disconnect on me at like 95% hack when they couldn't find me anywhere, but yeah, I've been invaded at least once when I was just about to stop playing, but I wasnt in a hurry per se so I just went through with it rather than disconnected in the middle :P You take a notoriety hit for disconnecting though, I believe.

    I got my brother to get the game on his Xbox one. :)

    What bothers me though, is he always messes up with games where he has to think. He's great at sport games, like FIFA and NBA 2K, but not so much at games like titanfall, call of duty, watchdogs, Ryse, etc. Lol

    Not really no, except the little progression they have, having to reach certain amount of notoriety to unlock something.

    Just the Tailing and Drinking Achievements left. I'm leaning towards skipping the drinking games, as they're a giant pain. Might just drop off Watch Dogs at Best Buy tomorrow for $44, if the trade-in value remains the same and I can get the last 7 or so tailings done in-time.

    Yeah, but I figured one of the hidden achievements might be something regarding those :P

    No, the secret ones are for each Act and for getting tailed 5 times.

    I'm all done with the game now. I have every Achievement but the drinking game one, which I don't think I'm capable of getting.

    I'm probably at 25% completion. I havn't rushed with the story cos there's been interesting stuff in the open world. That said, I've been quite busy too so havn't had too much time to sink into this. For comparison, it took me exactly 4h to play through Thief on my second playthrough (for a few achies) where I ignored everything that wasn't the main story. My first playthrough with "natural curiosity" took me over 30 hours :P So I expect it to be fairly similar here, I think the 40-50 hour mark (that I think some devs or some promo video mentioned) might be well doable for me.

    Oh, well, I'm over 70 hours. I have nothing going on right now. Wanted to golf twice last week, didn't happen. Wanted to go tomorrow, but that fell through as well. So, I'll probably just try to beat the dumb drinking game a few times this week, then eventually give it up. I have plenty still to do in Powerstar Golf and Titanfall, and I could take advantage of Best Buy's buy 2, get 1 free this week and re-purchase Forza 5, then grab Tropical Freeze on the Wii U and a third game like NBA 2K14 for free or something. I'd get all 3 for...$78, and I'd get $44 for Watch Dogs, meaning $35 for all 3 games.

    Nice, 70h. That's pretty good value if you can still trade it back for 44usd :D

    I finished the game last week and the only thing I did was played it once more to have fun dying various ways. I found out if you have 8 frag grenades and use them to kill yourself, when you respawn your grenades refill.

    Otherwise, the game was a little heavy in the end of the story. Made me really feel bad for Aiden. He is like Batman except he kills people and is more realistic.

    I can't seem to find the drinking game. :'(
