Far Cry 4: Elephant Trailer, As Viewed By An Elephant

In a much anticipated sequel to my kitten’s world exclusive review of Shelter, comes my toy elephant Timothy commentating on the latest Far Cry 4 trailer. Ladies and gentleman, Timothy.

I dunno what a vid e o game is but I like elephants!

Elephants are best! They have got big ears and a trunk and red socks. ELEPHANTS!

I like the elephant in this at first, but then it gets all scary when the elephant starts getting all mean and makes that man lie down on the ground really sooner than he wanted. He seemed sad. But then the elephant makes the other man happy by chucking him up in the air which looks lots of fun!

I hope this is a game about being an elephant.


(Happy birthday to my wife Laura, Timothy’s mum.)

    Timothy, were you able to talk to the elephants?

  2. FurryLippedSquid says:

    Has he mastodon line yet?

  3. Stellar Duck says:

    Happy birthday to Laura!

    This was a lovely little thing I thought.

      You mean John and Laura got together and had a stuffed animal as a son? How does that even work?

    • Gap Gen says:

      I mean, I suppose technically he’s slept with John Walker? Does that count as gamergate? I honestly have no idea any more.


        Are you implying John Walker is a plushie? Because that would explain quite a few things.

      EHTIC CONDUCT! That’s it, I’m writing angry emails to Rock Papor SHotgun shareholders!

    That bit where the Elephant held up the baddie in with its trunk while the player shot him might be the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m really looking forward to Far Cry 4!

    How is elephant simulator not a thing yet? Did I miss anything?

    • DanMan says:

      We don’t have the technology yet.

    • mr.black says:

      Well there was that whole Rome Total war thing, but it got bogged down by all those pesky humans in it..

    Made my morning. :D <3

  8. heretic says:

    elephants are awesome

  9. Heliocentric says:

    Why are the comments not locked? RPS pushing the pachyderm agenda as ever, typical.

  10. Tom Walker says:

    Apparently that video contained nudity, sexual themes and use of drugs. Clearly the elephant is naked, but it wouldn’t have occured to me it was also stoned and horny.

  11. Synesthesia says:

    I really like the intro mandala animation, and the dust elephant and tiger at the end. Anyone know who did them?

  12. Durkonkell says:

    I hope the elephant got paid for this article. Too many publications tell their stuffed animals that it’ll be good exposure to work for free. You mark my words, soon all of RPS’s articles will be written by exploited animal toys, hoping that if they write just one more news post their masters will finally start to pay them for their efforts.

  13. MattMk1 says:

    I hope we’re not going to be asked to shoot any elephants to make the ultimate ammo bag from their scrotum this time around.

    There were some animals in FC3 I really hated hunting. Except for the mountain lions, those things were vicious and came out of nowhere to bite your face off.

  14. MrFinnishDude says:

    I’m getting major Dwarf Fortress flashbacks.
    The horror, the miasma, the trumpeting.. THE TRUMPETING!!!

    • RedViv says:

      I hadn’t previously thought about this, but seeing an elephant for the first time, and ON THE BATTLEFIELD, stomping towards you… Poor Roman foot soldiers.

      • Gog Magog says:

        Poor whoever it was that had elephants when the Romans realised that elephants are just big horses and also incredibly easy to work into a blind panic and thus completely unsuitable as war mounts.

  15. MacTheGeek says:

    Maybe someday we can have a game that is 1000% ELEPHANTS.
