@allav866 As content creators, it's our job to provide content that our audience will enjoy, but we also need to encourage folks to watch that content in the first place - Titles are the quickest way to do that. We don't intend on misleading viewers, but your comment is a valid one - I'll make sure it gets kept in mind. Of course, you or anyone who wants to get in touch and wants to make suggestions and constructive criticism/praise then im always available on Twitter (@TheLastMetroid)

LeeGarbutt commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

I held off on Watch Dogs partly because of the Wii U version. Will be interested to see how it holds up against the 360/PS3 versions. At least they bothered with the DLC, although it's a shame you have to pay for them, considering the massive delay.
