Far-Fetched Cry: A Half Hour Of Blood Dragon Footage

By Alec Meer on April 9th, 2013 at 2:00 pm.

In an astonishing coincidence, my father's name is also Rex Power Colt

Edit – bah, videos removed. If anyone’s found another source please say so below.
Edit2 – A new source for one of the vids is now in this post, but presumably it won’t hang around for long.

This half hour of purported footage from Far Cry 3 expandalone Blood Dragon is obviously fake. You can tell by the way the shader polarity is reversed at 11m07s in the first video, and the vertex flux lacks external consistency at 03m40s in the second video. Don’t even et me started on how unconvincing the e-dough modulation is. If you’re naive enough to want to watch thirty minutes of fabricated video from a pastiche sci-fi shooter, I can only wave you at the supposedly leaked videos below. They might have gone by the time you get there, as Ubisoft will doubtlessly feel the blatantly counterfeit muzzle occlusion diodes will give the real version of their game a bad rep.

I guess I’m kind of looking forward to playing this, despite the latter half of Far Cry 3 making me put on my grumpy pants, given it’s so patently ridiculous. I’m not looking forward to reading interviews with the writer, however.

    Hmm, “video removed”?

  2. leQuack says:

    It’s indeed removed already, making the whole post kinda.. empty?

  3. povu says:

    Ubisoft is awfully eager to remove all gameplay videos.

  4. paranoydandroyd says:

    That was fast.

  5. MuscleHorse says:

    Well, that was quick.

    Also you don’t want to talk to the insanely insane writer?

  6. PatrickSwayze says:

    The game is already out apparently?

    Looks like a Uplay exploit let somebody download it early and now the internet is doing its thang yo

  7. MeestaNob says:

    What the fuck are Ubisoft doing removing videos of this? How does it possibly benefit them to remove advertising for a product?

    Fuckwits.

  8. Molocher says:

    You can download the video from mega here, it have a stupid filename but its the video.

    • Jason Moyer says:

      Wow. That looks quite crazy and fun.

    • MarcP says:

      Weapons and hands taking half of the screen, slow walking speed, slow jump recovery, experience points, reloading, sprinting, ironsight, fighting few enemies at a time in cramped level design… So, just your average modern FPS with a slightly different paint job.

      Why do these people hate fun so much?

      • ulix says:

        They like fun. Because, you know, Iron Sights, Experience Points etc. ARE fun.

        APart from that I got a strong impression of them actually mocking modern game design, and especially modern FPS-design.

        Also, what’s wrong about sprinting? Sprinting was actually quite amazing in FC3, because you could do it indefinitely. And I’d rather have 2 (or 3) different movement speeds than one, especially if sneaking is an option.

  9. bit_crusherrr says:

    I saw a video last night, it look pretty fun.

  10. The First Door says:

    LASER DRAGONS! Wait, what are we talking about again?

  11. lizzardborn says:

    So what – the whole game is out … seems like DRM enables you to leak your own content a month early.

    Also … from the “video footage” of the tutorial – it is the best tutorial ever :)

    Main character grunting – “Let me kill people already” …

  12. Spoon Of Doom says:

    “Use cover to stay behind things.”

    Finally a sensible tutorial.

  13. Hazzard65 says:

    Oh my word Ubisoft…. please make a Terminator 2 future war game. You have almost nailed it here! DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT! Also why the hell would they pull these videos? It looks awesome!

  14. mrd says:

    This is so getting bought. SO getting bought. Like bought bought.

  15. Hungry Like the Wholphin says:

    I like the sly jabs at Crysis 2

  16. staberas says:

    So yeah, after i watched the gameplay, the future will be like a demagnetized betamax tape which is is a step up from the brown shooters of today

  17. coldvvvave says:

    Rex is a revolver
    Power is probably short of High Power
    TT is well TT
    Brown is short of Browning

  18. apa says:

    Modern day Duke Nukem

  19. Tiax says:

    The whole game is out for anyone ready to pirate it.

    Nice one Ubi Soft.

  20. Shooop says:

    It’s nice that the in-game tutorials are making fun of themselves, but it’s still irritating that they’re even there and the player can’t skip them.

    • Vraptor117 says:

      Also, even while making fun of tutorial messages, the game still puts the player through several tutotial missions and the hud constantly spouts tutorial messages at the player. The constant FC3 “go here” status messages still pop up.

      • Shooop says:

        Oh godammit. Have they not learned anything after all?

        Don’t give the player a funhouse to play in and then put them on a leash. Otherwise all that wonderfully over-the-top dialogue and action is for naught. Don’t do this to us again Ubisoft.
