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.

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.

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

Okay, I'm gunna need a break between playing FC3 and this

β€œFor example, GTA is a colonization game. You come to New York, you colonize New York. Most open world games function that way. Ezio comes to Rome and colonizes Rome. To take that to its extreme, exaggerating those tropes is how you reveal them. The exaggeration of that trope is what happens in Far Cry 3.”

omg fuck this dude. way to be super condescending and a total idiot at the same time.

Finally beat this. You can pretty much call the end of the game, but there ya go. The plot points are stupid, but what are you gunna do.

The "good" ending is perfunctory, but the "bad" ending is D U M B

how's crysis 3? loved first and second

NI, Friday, 22 March 2013 02:22 (eight years ago) link

really pretty on pc. had some dumb fun with multiplayer but no confidence in its longevity

adam, Friday, 22 March 2013 02:35 (eight years ago) link

i never do multiplayer so that's no big deal. worrying reports of it being too easy though. not something that could be levelled at crysis 2

NI, Friday, 22 March 2013 18:48 (eight years ago) link

no idea if this is bullshit or not, but it looks AWESOME

You can do the Konami code at the fake website, too:

played tutorial and first 10 minutes of crysis 3 and so far seems a lot less fun than c2. poss felt like this at start of the other two but not chomping at the bit to go back to it

NI, Tuesday, 2 April 2013 03:35 (eight years ago) link

dodgy sound, but here's two hours:

If this laptop had a disc slot, i'd be stuffing money in there to make the game arrive quicker.

I'm interested in the soundtrack.

Also, here's an audio interview with the game lead:

Though this seems more 90s than 80s. If it was a real 80s dumb game it would be two buff dudes shooting up South American jungles.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Thursday, 18 April 2013 18:42 (eight years ago) link

This is late 80s/early 90s VHS trash, the kind that the RedLetterMedia guys watch and mock every few weeks. The stuff that Carolco or Cannon put out and that MacGruber(the movie) openly mocked.

Duke Nukem is from the later era.

Hockey Drunk (kingfish), Friday, 19 April 2013 03:09 (eight years ago) link

They're having a lot of fun with this, it seems

Hockey Drunk (kingfish), Saturday, 20 April 2013 19:17 (eight years ago) link

agreed. wish it felt a little less major lazerish

Here's a quicklook:

The reviews are coming in positive, with the point being made that the game undercuts itself and tries to have it both ways by alternately playing it straight and then commenting on its own idiocy.

the fact that you can throw ninja stars to take out other dudes when doing close-up melee kills shows how dead-on the game can be, tho. I want the soundtrack.

Hockey Drunk (kingfish), Wednesday, 1 May 2013 03:30 (eight years ago) link

Demo installing as we speak

O_o-O_O-o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 1 May 2013 05:50 (eight years ago) link

Yeah, I'm downloading the game from Amazon tonight. Weird that the serial number won't activate the game on Steam, and uPlay is a dumb enough service not to have that option either.

Hockey Drunk (kingfish), Wednesday, 1 May 2013 08:34 (eight years ago) link

i liked it as an idea, but im not sure its going to hold together as a game. tbf, the demo is crazy short and basically cuts off in mid sentence. really funny though. shooting/aiming is pretty irritatingly unforgiving.

O_o-O_O-o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 1 May 2013 21:09 (eight years ago) link

when playing this, you really gotta turn up the gamma

Listening to the Blood Dragon soundtrack about as much as I play the game

Where do you guys find these awesome glitch gifs?

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Friday, 17 May 2013 00:14 (eight years ago) link

i think that's a feature, not a glitch :)

precious bonsai children of new york (Jordan), Friday, 17 May 2013 00:48 (eight years ago) link

Yeah, the double bird shooting is part of the game. If you hit the melee attack button with no immediate target, it flips the bird. Keep hitting it and there you go.

Hockey Drunk (kingfish), Saturday, 18 May 2013 04:58 (eight years ago) link

really craving more far cry. is anything coming up?
