Re: Boy am i looking forward to this Game...Far Cry 3

I guess they could argue that virtual Malaria was more fun than actual Malaria, but it would be grasping at straws.

Perhaps in Uncharted 4 we could have a chapter dedicated to surviving Typhoid. When Nate wakes up on a concrete slab in a Thai hospital, Larry Hagman's face could peer down at you and proclaim it all to have been a dream.

This stuff virtually writes itself! tongue

Hehe. I like the sound of the that. You have a talent for writing, sir. It could be called Unchartered 4: Mary's Revenge or something like that.

Lol! that would be the slowest action adventure ever. Beat them with a wooden spoon then wait for them to die of Typhoid fever.

I think survival horror is the way forward. Lets call it Resident(ial home) Evil: Mary's Denial. grin

Looks great and I like the apparent action adventure type approach to it. But I need to read something from the developer telling us the world is a lot smaller, seeing as that jeep still needs driving! I got fed up with FC2 after just a couple of hours.

And I'm a bit worried about the mad quack with the pills. It had better not be his cure for jungle flu again!

With all those magic mushrooms, maybe they should rename the game? Far Out 3 or something?

Everything looks fairly linear to me. At least from what we can see there. I personally like big open worlds but not tedious AI that chases after you like a rabid dog on steroids every time they catch the faintest whiff of you. That was the main problem of FC2 in my opinion, rather than the world itself. A lot of it was fairly irrelevant though and there was certainly too much driving but that was more to do with mission design in my view.

It's always puzzled me somewhat just how economics works in game land actually. Just look at all those enemy combatants (for want of a better word). Where on earth do they all come from? With a body count like that, whichever secret agency they work for, there must surely be a heck of a bill to pay?

Guess I shouldn't really be thinking of logistical issues like how you feed and equip your own private army but I just can't help myself. There must be a lot of accountants working there too, all busy working out the payroll and making adjustments for all the dead. Wonder if their families get paid instead?

Those damn dinghies are back from FC1 too. They were a bit of a pita in the original but judging by the number of bullets our playable character can take, I suppose they won't be too much of a problem.

Pack your shades, sunscreen and some fishing tackle. FC3 is looking good! cool

In reply to a post by SPOOKish:

I hope so.

I'm not really the right person to judge though as I never played Far Cry and I gave up on FC2 after a few hours of driving around. It does look like fun in this clip though.

Hopefully we wont have all the tedious boring bits from the first that completely ruined the experience of what should have been a great game.

Sadly like you i gave up and traded it after only a few hours,the way my patience is these days it has to impress and immerse me within minutes and not many games are doing that for me last year or so.

Even MW3 i have not touched for 4 weeks or more and prefer Gears any day ,saying that my friend who is a total MW addict told me to check out a mode called Infected as its a right laugh and good fun.
