Re: Watch Dogs Legion (PS4, PS5, Xbox, PC) - 10/29/20

Evo seems to be easy enough to collect from missions. The last mission i did paid 8000 alone. I am doing the missions and where ever it is i clear out the building of everything in it. One gripe i have is i wish the drone to move around on cpuld be upgraded to be faster and have weapons. Getting around on it, its so slllloooooowwww. I do really like the options this game provides in doing missions, but playing it i wish it was more like Assassins Creed and allowed you to climb buildings. After that series this sandbox feels limited in that respect.

I was surprised to see that the drone won't even go high enough to get you to every rooftop. I must be spoiled by Spiderman in that regard. There was one mission I was doing and I had to get off the drone and hack into a window washing scaffolding to take me the rest of the way up. No idea why they capped the drone height below where you need to get, unless they just wanted to make it more "difficult" to figure out.

I wonder if the drones are intentionally slow because of some rendering issues on the PS4/XO. Would be nice if they could move faster in the next-gen versions.

I think there is a trophy where you spend 100,000 on clothes.

That's a trophy I'll never get.

I mostly use the Spy character I got for liberating one of the boroughs; he's in a suit and looks good as-is. Maybe I'll change it up and outfit him from one of the London tourist booths.

Starting to look less and less like I'll be able to finish this before AC or Miles Morales. I'm actually enjoying it more now though so I'm going to stick with it to completion. I finished up one of the 3 main story lines leading to the finale. Curious to see how others decided to complete that one (the 404 story line).

^^ How many hours would you say you've spent? I do not need another AC-length game before I dive into Valhalla.

I actually finished it last night. Per Ubisoft Connect, I put in 29 hours. I liberated every borough but I didn't go around collecting all the money/tech points in the city. The story was predictable but the gameplay was fun. You can play where your operatives die permanently, which would extend the gameplay since recruiting new people takes time. I didn't do that. I had 10-12 people recruited by the end.

For comparison, I had well over 100 hours in Odyssey.

One thing this game was lacking was any meaningful side content. Unless you want to go around and recruit a bunch of people or do random repeatable quests to get money, all you really have to do is the story.

I decided to do one of my very first recruitment missions to bring om this guy with awesome Drone skills. I messed around and exploded something from a distance. Was the wrong thing to do. Not only did I fail the mission but I lost the recruit.

There is a game save. But it does nothing for me when I try to load it up.


Edit: tried deleting the game save on console and re-syncing. Nope. It is gone. Fucking dicks

Is this on a PS4 or PS5? If so, did you download it back to your system first? You'll need to do that today or the old save will be replaced by the new, useless save you made today.

No Xbox series X. This bug only affects Xbox.

Re: Watch Dogs Legion (PS4, PS5, Xbox, PC) - 10/29/20

It looks like Ubi has a patch to fix this disastrous Xbox bug coming early next month.

Watch Dogs: Legion has a widespread issue in which autosaving simply stops working on Xbox Series X and S Ė an issue Ubisoft is now aware of, and will release a fix for in early December.

It's not clear what causes the bug to kick in, but players report that hours of progress can be lost after autosave seemingly either stops working, or ignores recent checkpoints. It's a particualrly serious issue given that Legion doesn't allow manual saving, and console versions only have a single autosave slot.

The problem seems only to affect the Series X and S versions of the game
Iím also playing on the Series X, although I only got through the prologue before being distracted by the PS5 for a couple of weeks. I guess Iíll have to keep on waiting.

Yup. I am just going to wait to play it. Annoying as fuck.

Re: Watch Dogs Legion (PS4, PS5, Xbox, PC) - 10/29/20

PS5 version doesn't seems to have any options for choosing performance (60fps) over fidelity (ray-tracing, etc.), and the game is setup for the latter, so it's a bit stutter-y on my PS5. That's disappointing after playing Spider-Man MM in performance mode.

Character designs are kind of terrible in this, and if anyone remembers the wonky lip sync in Life is Strange before it was patched, there's hints of that all over this so far. It doesn't help that the dialog is a bit cringey (I'm playing the game as a white British woman, so maybe it's just her voice... but she sounds silly when she says, "You look like the kind of person who wants to take back your country." to random strangers.)
Environments look fantastic, though. Still... I'll keep playing this. I'm enjoying it for what it is... just hoping they patch a few things without fucking up game saves.

It looks like they used the same 3-4 actors to play a wide array of in-game characters. In fact, I have at least three team members that are all very obviously played by the same actress.

They had to do it that way, considering you can take literally anyone off the street as a team member. I tried to pick wildly different people to join so I didn't notice much overlap but it's definitely there.

Game is still totally unplayable on my PS5. Will have to just bite the bullet and do a system reset this weekend and redownload the game (again). If that doesnít work I will have to send the PS5 back I guess...

That sucks, Decker. Hopefully since you got it directly from Sony that they will prioritize you on a replacement.

I did. But they still arenít even answering their phones. Just directing you to their website and I have already done everything short of a full system reboot to no avail.

That is some top notch customer service. It sucks you are going through that.
