Watch Dogs delay allowed for more ideas, but 'bigger' concepts saved for sequel

The delay of Watch Dogs meant the development team got to include several ideas that would have otherwise been scrapped and saved for a sequel, according to Ubisoft VP of creative Lionel Raynaud. Even so, though, the team couldn't fit in all of their concepts, and so the company is already hinting at a sequel.

Watch Dogs could have shipped on time, producer says

Watch Dogs could have shipped on time, producer says

Today, Ubisoft announced Watch Dogs' new release date: May 27. It's about half a year after the game was originally supposed to ship, before Ubisoft very suddenly delayed the game just a month before launch.

Senior producer Dominic Guay says that the last-minute delay happened because "we still could have shipped" the game on time. "It was not like we were failing miserably, the game didn't work, or it couldn't be played! We'd been playing this game from front to back for so long it really looked like this would happen."

Child of Light co-op highlighted by new trailer

Child of Light co-op highlighted by new trailer

Ubisoft's beautiful Child of Light may be a Grandia-inspired turn-based RPG. However, it also features a multiplayer mode inspired by Rayman Legends.

When playing with a friend, your partner takes control of Igiculus, a ball of light that can interact with the environment. Not only can he illuminate the way, he can open up new paths and stall enemies. In combat, Igniculus can also interrupt enemy attacks. However, these abilities can't be spammed--player two must scour the environment for orbs that refill a power bar that enable these powers.

South Park: The Stick of Truth review: Oh, hamburgers!

South Park: The Stick of Truth review: Oh, hamburgers!

Fans have been waiting for quite some time for South Park: The Stick of Truth. Repeatedly delayed over the years, the Obsidian-developed RPG is finally seeing the light of day. And while the RPG mechanics are overly simplistic and the game suffers from major bugs, this is an authentic South Park experience that will delight show devotees.

The story follows a "new kid" moving to the titular town. The silent protagonist quickly makes friends with Butters and Cartman, who initiate him into their fantasy tribe of elves. But the plot soon moves beyond defending the Stick of Truth from Kyle's band of humans and into something far bigger, expanding into a story that would more than fit in with Trey Parker and Matt Stone's hit television series.
