Watching you watching me

As much as we'd like to go over the sorry history of the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, we'll resist the urge. All that needs to be said is that the game finally launches on Nintendo's console this week — an event many believed would never happen — and we've captured some footage to prove that it actually exists, and isn't some kind of elaborate wind-up in behalf of Nintendo and Ubisoft.

Below you'll see the game's opening mission, which gives a flavour of the hacking action that makes the game so unique. You should also note that there is some bad language in the video, so consider yourselves warned.

Does the footage meet your expectations, or were you anticipating something more impressive? Let us know by posting a comment below.
