New awesome looking game about a man hacking into a city or some such. Possibly for PS 3. Man with a QR Code head. Discuss.
It looks similar to a GTA game.
What the QR code revealed.
Except prettier, and HAX, and likely a little more linear.
If they can make the co-op actually be a story where you are part of a team in the story and not just "You all do the same thing together" or just your partners are ignored, it would be the best co-op game made yet.
Day 1 purchase. Holy shit.
QR code apparently leads to "http://dotconnexion.ubi.com/performance.html"
No wonder the Ubisoft co-founders G4 talked to compared it AC. I foresee an in-depth alternate history with lots of All There in the Manual.
THIS IS PART OF THEIR REPLY TO FAN CRIES FOR A "MODERN" AC GAME! (This is a random thought and probably won't stand up to logic)
Here's my question. The multiplayer, will it be set characters, or created ones? That would be insane.
A watchdog timer (or computer operating properly (COP) timer) is a computer hardware or software timer that triggers a system reset or other corrective action if the main program, due to some fault condition, such as a hang, neglects to regularly service the watchdog (writing a "service pulse" to it, also referred to as "kicking the dog", “petting the dog”, "feeding the watchdog" or "waking the watchdog"). The intention is to bring the system back from the unresponsive state into normal operation.

@multiplayer: Why not both?
Have the game be team-focused w/ the possibility of co-op * in single-player you switch control to the member with the most important roll at the time while the others are AI... probably at set points in the gameplay because doing it on the fly would be a programmer's nightmare and team-based vs modes. <Mind fries at all the possibilities of all the goals a vs mode could have>
Like I needed another reason to say UBISOFT JUST WON THE INTERNETS! I'm not even the sort of guy who likes using memes...

Hey guys isn't it darkly hilarious that a game about the intrusive nature of software is published by freaking UBISOFT?!
Ok ok, back on topic, the game itself looks pretty good, I might get it depending on further info but right now it's a pretty darn good first impression.
Starbreeze, EA. I would like for the two of you to take notes, because what we just witnessed was a Syndicate reboot done right.
I'm shocked! SHOCKED, I tell you.
Interesting, a game based on Technomancy. It might not be strictly technomancy, but it's pretty dam close to me.
Gonna keep an eye on that game.
By the way, I checked. As far as I can tell, this Raymond Kenny doesn't really exist. Still, I like to think of this as an alternate universe where he did cause the 2003 Northeast Blackout and started the chain events that created the world this game depicts.
Does anyone else smell an Alternate Reality Game hook in that website and QR code?
I suck at AR Gs so I'll probably wait for someone else to figure it out.
I'm stoked. So far, this is the only title I've seen at E3 that I'd consider immediately getting on Day 1.
You know, as someone who hates realism and cover shooters, this looks incredible. The graphics alone, with those cloth physics, huge crowds and realistic cityscapes, are just mind blowing. I really can't wait to hear more about this one.
Yeah the graphics look surprisingly good.
Is this a next generation title or were they just showing it on PC to get the best look?
apparently, and this is just a rumor because I got it from a freaking youtube comment, it's PS 3/360/PC, and the demo was done on a 360.
Nope, twitter confirmed it was on PC.
Wow. I'm just...wow.
It's like Post-Cyberpunk in videogame form.
So, a question occurs to me from the demo: Why did the gas-station catch fire? the car crash was localized to the intersection, so what caused it to go fwoosh?
For the same reason gas stations have those "Do not use your cell phone" signs

Looks like a cross between Assassin's Creed, Human Revolution, and GTA.
Interesting. While it doesn't look like a game changer* oh, a city sandbox game where I am an anti-hero and can do x to cause mischief, I'll be keeping this on my radar.
The most interesting thing I saw in the gameplay trailer was the civilian freaking out about his buddy who got caught in the crossfire.
