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

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.

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.

launch trailer

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

Hockey Drunk (kingfish), Thursday, 16 May 2013 23:19 (eight years ago) link

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

one year passes...

really craving more far cry. is anything coming up?

ace. what i really want is a sequel/extra dlc for blood dragon. such an amazing game that, one of my all-time top 10

NI, Saturday, 9 August 2014 02:33 (seven years ago) link

three months pass...

anyone played this new one yet? been looking forward to it all year, will be gutted if it's not as good as 3 or blood dragon

NI, Saturday, 15 November 2014 04:33 (seven years ago) link

good this, tho a bit buggy. not quite as wow as 4 or BD, yet anyway, but still great

NI, Sunday, 16 November 2014 16:37 (seven years ago) link

and that's my detailed in-depth review of far cry 4

NI, Sunday, 16 November 2014 16:37 (seven years ago) link

is this one as uh racist as 3?

adam, Monday, 17 November 2014 14:45 (seven years ago) link

yeah it's pretty racist. not as hateful as eg gta5 (it's not gona stop me playing it) but yep it's peppered with lame dialogue & lazy writing

NI, Monday, 17 November 2014 18:41 (seven years ago) link

three weeks pass...

loving this. no one else in the whole wide world of ilx playing it?

NI, Monday, 8 December 2014 01:15 (six years ago) link

ubisoft so will be $5 in a few months

adam, Monday, 8 December 2014 01:25 (six years ago) link

i'm working my way through it at the moment on ps4. i loved far cry 3 and i feel like i should be enjoying this more than i am so far. i've put about eight hours into it, mostly just roaming around unlocking bell towers and raiding enemy compounds.

it's largely been avoiding the horrible story / characterisation pitfalls that annoyed me in fc3, thankfully, but i wish the gameplay had been updated a bit more along with the setting - it's very similar mechanically to fc3 which is making it a bit harder to love. helicopter / wingsuit / elephant adventures have undeniably been a lot of fun, though.

i think i might be getting tired of ubisoft's schtick - having also played watch_dogs and ac: black flag this year i've overdosed a bit on map unlocking, secret item uncovering, base-raiding and all the other stuff which is shared between their games.

bizarro gazzara, Monday, 8 December 2014 11:14 (six years ago) link

i never gelled with watch dogs and got bored halfway through black flag too. can kinda see this happening with fc4 but every time i get a bit weary they throw a new thing in that gets me going - the mountain missions are great for that. not quite as awesome as fc3 (and definitely not as much as blood dragon) but i'd say it's one of the better games from a pretty humdrum year

NI, Monday, 8 December 2014 18:10 (six years ago) link

not really interested because it seems so similar to FC3, which upon completing gave me a sense of 'huh, kinda wish i hadn't spent so many hours on that'.

i do love doing stealth takeovers of the bases, that's the only part that's tempting.

festival culture (Jordan), Monday, 8 December 2014 18:15 (six years ago) link

I was playing FC3 last night and I had a falling-through-the-world glitch happen. I was swimming to some treasure and when I looked up there was no land but I could see trees, they were just hovering in mid-air. Then the land started taking shape, but it looked like it was all transparent. I was stuck under the water, and my character was gasping for air, and it was really horrifying. I tried to get away but was still stuck, though with the land being all transparent, it was like I was a ghost or something. Eventually I feel through the ground and the sky appeared below me and the entire world was upside down. By this time the game was stuttering so I had to shut it off.

The stealth takeovers of bases is definitely the best part of these games. Too bad that once you do take over all the bases, there are no more enemies to fight, so you're just running around an open world with this massive arsenal and all your combat upgrades and have no one to fight.

there are couple of places where the enemies respawn - like the airfield, I think (haven't played it for ages so I might be wrong)

Driving in FC4 is terrible.

been messing with far cry 3 some more. i've taken over all the outposts and synchronized all the towers, is there anything else to do in this game that is fun? nb the story is too stupid and i don't plan on finishing it.
