There’s a character in Watch Dogs 2 who has an LCD screen over his face displaying different emoticon eyes to fit the mood. ~_^ Yeah, it is sort of awful but then the game’s so brash with its take on hacking culture – apparently powered by chai tea soy lattes and art school pixel graffiti – that it all works beautifully. 

As the new hero, Marcus is an unlikely fit for Watch Dog’s previously dour, grumpy-trench coat stylings, with his skinny jeans and jacket sleeves pushed up. He looks like a student. A skinny streak of a kid with his MacBook Air stuffed into a tiny shoulder bag (when he’s not sat cross-legged tapping away at its keyboard to bring down tha man with it).
