I watch from behind a dumpster as the man with the government employee wife saddles up to the gangster. It’s not a smart move. The gangster calls him a snitch, pulls out a bat. Warnings flash on my readout: crime probability 40%, now 55%, now simply “imminent” as the gangster cocks the bat and the man cowers. I step forward while whipping out my pistol and the gangster hoofs it, sprinting to a nearby vehicle and burning rubber through a red light. This is not real-life vigilante justice: it’s a hands-on sneak preview of Watch Dogs (and Assassin’s Creed IV).
