Far Cry 5 - Hope springs eternal


#313

Well it’s time to climb off their sisters and get to their gun racks, because @wumpus is comin’ to town!


#314

I am in the mood for a mass shooting.

in a video game only, of course.


#315

That’s the only place where I’m dangerous. : )


#316

Please. I’m from that part of the country and can tell you, it’s not “sisters”, it’s “livestock”.


#317

Far Cry is probably the most successful series at getting me to buy and then only play a few hours. Usually because of some hook that works well enough in marketing or early, shallow review to get me to pull the trigger.

So is this one going to finally get co-op right? If so, I’m in.


#318

Was this the case with Primal? I see it on sale on the ubi store, tempting me.


#319

GET IT! It, when the survival mode came along, is my favorite Far Cry game ever, and tops off even Black Flag as favorite open world game ever.

But please - play it with Survival mode on! IF you are feeling REALLY adventerious, play it in Hardcore mode even.
I can recommend @tomchick stream, where he did just did that.


#320

Found it, will watch today!


#321

Primal is an awesome game. I only played it a few hours, but will definitely get back to it soon ;). I’ll counter @Razgon a bit, survival mode is great but hardcore mode slows it down too much for me.


#322

Delayed to March 27th.


#323

Nice! More time to clear the winter sale backlog before the release.


#324

Hope Springs… Eventually?


#325

Yup. This is a Far Cry game.


#326

Yep. Same game, different location. I might be too jaded on open-world games to play this but we’ll see. I’m a sucker for beautiful outdoor environments. If there really is fishing in this game, I’ll likely play it just for that.

At least you can’t crouch in tall grass and casually whistle the enemies over to you one at a time, a staple of most games I’ve been playing lately (Mad Max, Mafia III, AC Origins, Uncharted 4, Sniper Elite 4…).

Or can you?


#327

Mad Max had no grass!


#328

Just checking to see if you guys were paying attention. Yeah, that’s it.


#329

Not sure I can stomach another Ubi game… but if I can hold off on the DLC for Wildlands maybe this will be fresh enough!


#330

Far Cry 3 “Classic Edition” will come with the Far Cry 5 season pass.


#331

Maybe they can make the trees look good from a distance this time. That really bothered me. Every time I climbed a tower and looked at the vista and saw all those ugly trees, it made me want to stop playing. So I did.


#332

I miss Far Cry 2 with the African grasslands and the buddy saving mechanic.
