chill, chief. you can turn the radio off. not sure which format you're playing on, but on PS4 you hit up (i believe?) on the d-pad.

These Golden Path fucks don't do much except stand around waiting for this here random tourist to win an entire revolution for them single-handedly. If I don't end up running the place after I kill the final boss dude I won't be pleased.

Favourite moment so far was taking over an outpost by repeatedly throwing bait into it to attract tigers and bears. I didn't fire a single shot.

im playing fc3. hate the story but dig the open world stuff. funniest shit i've seen so far is one of those patrolling enemy jeeps do a hit and run over one of their own guys while another guy just stood there. then a minute later that guy was attacked and killed by a flightless bird

from what i've seen/heard it's a textbook ubisoft game. pretty graphics, nice open world, stupid enemy AI, bad story

The NPC spawn over and over with the same bloody skins. so youll be walking along a montana mountainside and walk past this same asian hiker guy 6 times in 2 minutes.

Its really buggy. And we're playing the PS4 versh.

Not too bad a game but the "David Koresh with cool tats" thing is a bit overcooked.

a friend has Far Cry 5 and i played for a few hours on his PS4. it's pretty good but def more of the same. he is really into stealth takedowns of the bases which is something the series has grown to excel at.

i ended up buying Far Cry 2 on steam after hearing about it for years. it's kind of janky (had to bring all settings to medium in order to stop the CTD) but very atmospheric and a lot of fun. also a very different kind of game - no sneak melee kills and bullets can pierce most walls (being hastily constructed shacks in war-torn Africa), meaning you can't rely on cover for too long, you have to keep moving, which is pretty cool. the map is now one of my favorites of all time.

fc5 has a mechanic where u do stuff in a region to fill up a meter, when the meter fills up you can do the boss fight mission. rather, you HAVE to do the boss fight mission as the game pulls you out of whatever amusing open world shit you were doing and throws you into a long corridor shooter mission that you can't get out of. i haven't booted the game up since it did that and i probably never will tbh.

a shame b/c it was a mindless good time til then, in the ubi tradition.

Far Cry 2 (Steam) ended up solving my CTD and graphics glitches & crashes by setting it to use DirectX10 instead of 9. plays very smooth and looks like a dream. i love the varied weather, the wind storms that rustle up. the tall grasses you can hide in. this BOTW and MGS3 for top 3 videogame GOAT (Grass of All Time)

there are not as many wild animals as the new games however, which kinda sucks cos you are in Africa and there could be some cool stuff. also i have lost so many missions due to enemies just pulling up in a car and running me over. it sucks, you can be 10 mins into a mission and a car comes out of nowhere and insta kills you back to the last save.

the diamond hunting is a lot of fun. all over the map there are suitcases with diamonds (upgrade material) to find. often they are hidden in an out of the reach place you have to jump to or something and it turns into a little side puzzle where you are figuring out where to go and how to get to them.

in the better moments it definitely captures that Chuck Norris 80s movies, sliding under bullets while you single-handedly waste an army of mercs in the jungle.

I've only watched someone else play it but whats with the endless, repeating "run thru the house shooting ghost people" hallucination trial? Why make the player do that over and over?
