Conan O'Brien Checks Out Watch Dogs, Is Suitably Impressed
We're still awaiting the verdict from critics, but one celebrity critic has already weighed in.
It's comedian Conan O'Brien, who has already reviewed the hotly anticipated Watch Dogs in his ongoing "Clueless Gamer" segment. In the latest episode, O'Brien plays the PS4 version of Ubisoft's new IP and as usual, he offers some hilarious commentary.
Perhaps our favorite quote is the part where he comments on the game's hacking focus:
"The action [in past video games] used to be 'slay the dragon.' Now it's, 'Let's go into a basement and play with computers!'"
Watch Dogs does include plenty of standard action, of course. The comedian did wonder about protagonist Aiden Pearce's ability to hack just about anything; does this mean he can watch people having sex? Well, not really. You can spy on romantic encounters in the game but they never go that far. As for O'Brien's final assessment:
"It'll blow your mind. Watch Dogs. Coming out May 27. If you're a cool dude, you'll love it. If you're a hacker who likes to stay in a basement and play around with people's adjustable rate mortgage, you'll really love it."
There are all sorts of reasons to be excited about Watch Dogs; you probably didn't need O'Brien's good-to-go signal. But it's always funny watching him, that's for sure.
