Far Cry 3's Tribe Goes To War

Doesn't the side of her head get cold?

Oh man, you’re going to hate me so much for saying this. So much. But – I’m so sorry – now that I’ve finished playing Dishonored – I’M SO SORRY – and XCOM – I’M SO SO SO SORRY – for the time being, I’m not entirely sure what to do with myself in the approaching weeks. I’ve not played Torchlight 2, but I don’t feel in right state of mind for click-frenzy right now. FTL forever sings to me, but I should move on to new pastures. I do have a new build of Hotline Miami… Then I saw this latest, thankfully generously-lengthed trailer for Far Cry 3, and for the first time (for I am an idiot) released it was out this year rather than next. It’s a trailer that suggests something really… meaty. Wild. Strange. It’s also got some somewhat dubious exploitationy aspects I’m not quite so sure about, but hell – I’d pretty much resigned the remaining months of 2012 to CODMOH bleh, and this looks proper interesting.

There’s a lot in there. A lot to get excited about, a little to worry about but most of all something with at least the hallmarks of great ambition.

Ubi’s other big late-2012 game is Assassin’s Creed III of course, and I’ll play the gosh-darn crikey out of that too, even if it is highly unlikely to win my affections to the extent FTL, Dishonored and XCOM has. It’s a strong hand from Ubi in the coming weeks, and I hope they can live it to it.

Far Cry 3’s out November 30, by the way.
