Interesting info about the 'Companion App'
http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/...-companion-app

At first glance, I was already leaning towards a yes on the trailer but the first three minutes into gameplay I was %100 on purchasing this. I am absolutely loving this new style Ubisoft has adapted in the futuristic Watch Dogs/Division look and feel and really hope it's as smooth as it seems.

Lots of speculation to be made about the game in regards to gameplay modes, difficulty, how long the single player campaign is (is there one?) and what exactly the single player campaign entails, etc.

When they played the first 75% of the demo I was thinking "Nice! imma spend some fucking money!". When they said MMO and persistent world I changed to "hmmm, I dunno...". Finally at the last 10 seconds of the trailer when they get ambushed by other players after the mission and the dude says"prepare for pvp!" I almost punched a hole through my laptop's screen. So fucking dissapointing, pass.

What exactly bothers you about that? Afraid of your game being compromised by other players or some other element?

It's funny because I had the exact opposite reaction. I saw the PvP and got jittery, I cannot fucking wait to get a crew together and run some shit. I am competitive though and don't mind my gaming experiences full of random and fucked up shit due to other players.

Skill list that can change on the fly and seems versatile from what we've seen so far, group makeup doesn't *require* max players to do things or to play against a larger group (of 4, maybe max is more?) from the videos so I like the realistic elements of difficulty based on real player made situations for sure. Weapons (maybe armor & accessories) have stats and will most likely be upgradeable with different ammo types, scopes, etc. All of this taking place in a rather large, graphically flawless & seamless open world where I can interact with the game's story elements like the cop station NPCs and players at the same time?

It's like a dream team slam dunked their signed ball into the goal of my driveway.

I'd enjoy an arena type system that merged the old attack and defend RS:V callipso casino type shit. I don't like the random world pvp shit though. Guild "N11ger d1cks" waiting around the popular lv 30 mission hubs with lv65 sniper rifles shouting "bur bur bur" and sniping us as we exfiltrate would just be lame, and thats pretty much what all pvp rpgs degenerate into.

This kind of depends on progression and how things scale. It's best to wait for more really before jumping to conclusion. However if they can keep laming to a min this type of gameplay could be crazy fun since you're doing missions and looking over your shoulders entire time.

They just went into depth. They said when you use the flare to do an extraction it pings you on the map to other players who can come and try to stop you from leaving so they can kill you and take your loot.

Yeah I thought it looked awesome until I saw it was an MMO with pvp, no thanks. Make a single player version of it and I'd be all over it.

The Division or Destiny? I can't really figure out who has the best grasp on the next step from CoD/Halo... I really like Halo/2 and CoD4 and really never thought they captured the magic since them. Will The Division and Destiny focus on PvP?

I'm assuming playing on a PvP zone/server/whatever is optional but you're a pussy if you don't.

If they make hardcore servers it could be just like DayZ.

It does make me think that maybe they don't want to release this for PC because they don't want people running their own modded servers, because I can just fucking imagine what clever hacks people could come up with for custom servers.

I like both personally but i feel i can get pleasurably lost in Destiny just from exploring and shit. The Division i like just as much but i'd most assuredly only play that with friends so i can enjoy the PVP more.

Inclined to agree with Mist, why bother playing a shooter if you dont want to kill Wakandanz? Titanfall is possibly the co-op shit you're looking for if you want to avoid PVP.

Titanfall is like battlefield with mechs, hardpoint, team deathmatch etc in the multiplayer. I like that shit, I'd probably play it if I was getting an xboxone.

Yeah, but my ass loves my memoryfoam couch so much at the moment, I hardly ever game on the pc anymore. I guess I need to find some really swank fucking computer chair.

Best of show at E3 as far as I'm concerned. Looks like DayZ on steroids. My god if they actually have a pvp looting system I'll cream my shorts over this game.

If it's coming out on a console it'll probably have game pad support...

If it's DayZ style looting and survival system, they can just shut up and take my money.
