On tuesday, I think. all the journos seem to be keen on it. I liked FC2, and will probably be picking this up at some point.

this is the 3rd and final free game that came with my new video card. i didn't like fc2 all that much (so many awesome ideas with zzz execution) but i'm looking forward to this, hopefully it's not too super racist.

just finally got around to starting a playthrough of crysis 2 and wow i really really hate it so far

i really wanted to like FC2 but got frustrated and stalled out on it. the save/checkpoint system (among other things) was really punishing, as i recall. excited about this one though.

i have a thing about playing fps games like borderlands, stalker, crysis etc with a keyboard and mouse - love the way you can aim all precise rather than letting the xbox controller pad give a helping hand. however my pc is a few years old so it might only run far cry 3 at low spec. with that in mind, is it the kind of game that benefits from the precise aim system you get from a mouse, or does that not really apply? ie i find games like portal, splinter cell, batman, max payne etc are fine to play with the controller pad

Waiting for the Far Cry 3/McAfee patch.

it's ok. story is fucking dumb on some last samurai shit.

adam, Thursday, 6 December 2012 23:08 (seven years ago) link

yeah not looking forward to the story. mechanics are solid/fun though?

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 6 December 2012 23:17 (seven years ago) link

Bought a d/l code offa CL tonight. Still downloading.

The Giant Bomb guys raved about the mechanics and just dumped on the plot. So there's that.

i shot a shark dead from a clifftop, jumped into the water, skinned the shark, climbed out, threw a grenade into a pen of boars, skinned all of em, made me a backpack.

then a bunch of dudes showed up in a jeep but they got eaten by komodo dragons mid-gunfight. (i then skinned the komodo dragons.) gameplay is pretty good i'd say.

adam, Friday, 7 December 2012 16:47 (seven years ago) link

You can hunt tigers with grenades in this, and their buddy will eat you.

Got my sharkshins by standing on a shore with an AK.

Vaas' voice-actor will become a much bigger star after this(at least in the V/A world)

don't starve is like far cry 3 but fun and not racist.

adam, Tuesday, 11 December 2012 21:51 (seven years ago) link

girlfriend forbade me from killing any more animals in this, except snakes.

i like how all of the actual animal hunting quests justify it by making them rabid dogs or man-eating bears, but the rest of the time you're encouraged to shoot all of the animals because you want a new wallet.

Huh? All the hunting quest targets I've seen lately are suggested due to their exoticness: blood kimodo, black leopard, white belly tapir, etc.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 11 December 2012 22:13 (seven years ago) link

haha yeah go murder this endangered animal with a bow. then make a very fashionable grenade pouch. then do it again and again.

adam, Tuesday, 11 December 2012 22:16 (seven years ago) link

I actually liked the crafting and hunting mechanic in this, but the targets got way too close to some poacher shit for this.

guess i'm not that far yet, i'm on the initial Animal Control levels and haven't graduated to poaching.

i want to play a good recent shooter. is this ok? or is it too douchey to deal w/

before and after broscience (goole), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:05 (seven years ago) link

it's kinda douchey but the mechanics carry it through for me. doing things is fun, and the semi-random wanderings of animals and soldiers adds a lot. enough for me to overlook the dumb elements.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:11 (seven years ago) link

huh ok, i'll keep it in mind. i did enjoy fc2 a lot.

cozen where are you with fps science these days

before and after broscience (goole), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:13 (seven years ago) link

wait r. shift to hold breath???????

adam, Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:28 (seven years ago) link

Or right-stick to hold, yeah. Better accuracy.

To be fair, the only really douchey things are the characters, and they're written that way.

Got to the sex scene last night, which made sense in the story, I guess, and wasn't nearly as cringe-worthy as the speech the protagonist makes afterwards trying to rile up the troops.

Also, the 2ndary characters aren't used enough

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:56 (seven years ago) link

this game is 7/10 solid

story is so dumm tho & ~drugz~ sequences cringey

i just wish i wasn't having so much fun as a tribal-tatted bro shooting lots of animals and african people.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:09 (seven years ago) link

Pretty sure it's Indonesia...?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:10 (seven years ago) link

i thought it was african pirates taking over a polynesian or indonesian island for some reason? i dunno, i haven't gotten very far in the story + it doesn't matter.

r shift to breathe means dude is either is stretching his hand all the way across the keyboard to steady the shot OR dude has some crazy ass left-handed mouse setup. i'm a left-handed dude and even i think that shit is aberrant. is he buying special left handed mouses?

the open world thing where i walk and walk and walk and walk and i'm almost where i want to go and then i fall off a cliff and die and whoops i'm back where i started. drives me nuts. would be willing to forgive this game its narrative/cultural dumbassedness if it weren't for that shit.

adam, Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:27 (seven years ago) link

yeah when i die i never know what's going to be saved. if i skin an animal, make something, and then die, it's usually gone. but then i did one of those 'wanted' missions and did a takedown on the target, promptly got shot in the head, and it counted as a successful mission.

wish there was a save-whenever-you-want system.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:12 (seven years ago) link

ugh theres no self save option? that suuuuuuuucks

tiniest homeless (jjjusten), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:13 (seven years ago) link

like honestly i have no idea why devs in 2012 would be doing that, esp with an open world game

tiniest homeless (jjjusten), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:14 (seven years ago) link

oh wait, there is a 'save' option, but it's still weird. it doesn't save your position and let you load up from right where you left off, so does it just save your gear etc?

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:15 (seven years ago) link

yeah it saves your stuff and stats but you "wake up" in one of the fast travel locations

adam, Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:21 (seven years ago) link

h8 it when this 'open-world' game kicks you back to a loading screen when you kill a guy the 'wrong' way

༼ ༎ຶ ෴ ༎ຶ༽ kma (cozen), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:24 (seven years ago) link

when i was doing the medusa mission i started on a hang-glider going to the far side of the beach to approach from that way, and it said 'FAILED: YOU LEFT THE MISSION ZONE'. like, yo, i had a plan. too bad going between missions and wandering around isn't a little more seamless.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:28 (seven years ago) link

oh man that blows. in FC2 you could go wherever the hell you wanted

before and after broscience (goole), Friday, 14 December 2012 02:07 (seven years ago) link

are the Crysis games worth playing? The whole series is available for less than twenty bucks american this weekend on steam and amazon

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Saturday, 15 December 2012 18:31 (seven years ago) link

the first few hours of crysis 1 are awesome. super fun. then it gets kind of bad but you can just reload and fuck around in the first area some more.

heard crysis 2 is more of a zzzz corridor shooter. no firsthand experience tho.

adam, Saturday, 15 December 2012 18:39 (seven years ago) link

in the jungle part of 1 you are basically the predator.

adam, Saturday, 15 December 2012 18:40 (seven years ago) link

Hmmm
