E3 Day Zero: When Game Violence Becomes Vile

One of the most striking scenes of yesterday's E3 press conference gauntlet didn't take place on a stage or a screen. It wasn't rehearsed or pre-planned, and it most certainly wasn't expected. I sat in a jam-packed arena-sized auditorium and watched a game demo unfold on a screen bigger than my hometown. OK, that wasn't the surprising part. I'd been doing that all day. This…

Ah, Sanity: Far Cry 3 Dodging Ubi PC Delay

Good things come to those who wait. And admittedly, Assassin's Creed II (and its assorted pseudo-sequels), Driver: San Francisco, and - based on what I'm hearing - Ghost Recon: Future Soldier are pretty solid, but were they worth the long, cold nights we endured in anticipation of their arrival? OK, yeah, probably. But the time-honored tradition that is the Ubidelay arguably serves little-to-no purpose, and…

Far Cry 3 Teaser Is Neat, Is Neat, Has Tiger Feet

And most of the rest of a tiger too! Yes, it's Far Cry 3 footage time, in an excitable and heavily stylised trailer that offers snatches of what to expect on this new island other than shooting dudes. Includes a large tribe of angry-lookin' natives, Indiana Jones-style temples, swearing, flamethrowers, a lady with a chin tattoo that looks like a beard, boats, more swearing and…

Fire In The Whole: Far Cry 3

I was comfortable in being incorrect in my predictions that Far Cry 3 would involve some form of free roaming excellence coupled with a thousand irritations, like a sleek engine attached to a ship of fools, grinding down the tracks, lopsided and soon to be derailed. What I didn't expect was quite so much railroading in the game, or at least in this segment of…

Benefits With Friends: Far Cry 3 Multiplayer

RPS hugbuddy Will Porter is giggling beside me. ("Hugbuddy"? - Incredulous Ed.) The guilt at what I was doing was not stopping me from doing it: I am a bad bad man and Will’s laughter drove me on. While we were waiting in the Far Cry 3 multiplayer lobby, I experimentally clicked the two thumbsticks down (the game was on PC, but it’s currently only…

Massive Entertainment Building Far Cry 3’s Multiplayer

Yup, that Massive: the Ground Control and World in Conflict devs have been disarmingly silent of late. But according to reports from the Ubisoft GDC event, they're helping to create the Far Cry 3 multiplayer. "Huh?", you might think, but hold that back for a moment - I have more. According to Vox Game's Brian Crecente In working on Far Cry 3's "online universe" Ubisoft…

Far Out: A Safari Of Far Cry 3 Screenshots

Listen, that trailer might have been a bit eyebrow-angling, but let's just be careful with our expectations. They're very delicate. The Far Cry games, while each not to everyone's personal standards, have always been interesting. I don't think the third one is going to fail on that count, either. Hell, if it's open world enough it'll make me happy. The images, too, cheer me up.…

Wait For The Drop: The Official Far Cry 3 Trailer Is Here

This is the 'official' version of the Far Cry 3 trailer, which is almost exactly the same as the one that leaked earlier on today. I actually felt bad about linking to that one, but we're all about disclosure here at RPS: whether you're Ubisoft or John Walker, we'll get to the heart of the story, no matter what. So, tell us Ubisoft: why did…

Far Cry 3 Trailer Leaks, Release Date: Sept 6th

This feels dirty: the Far Cry 3 trailer has leaked a day early, a CGI introduction to the lead character's holiday going stinky. I have just watched it and can confirm there's bad language, a boat, guns, and a man not shooting someone when he really, really should have. It also confirms the release date as September 6th, and has dubstep. If you want to…

The Beach is Back: Far Cry 3

We caught a dose of Far Cry 3 at E3. But what were the side effects? Beyond being a FPS, Far Cry 2 didn’t really have anything to do with Far Cry at all. Where the first game was lush islands, the second was arid central African scrub. Where the first game was lonely, the second had AI companions, conversations, and expensive Jeeps. Where the…

Trundle In The Jungle: Far Cry 3 Footage

A body of Far Cry 3 details and footage has come bubbling to the surface of E3 like a bullet-riddled corpse in a greasy river. Since I was encouraging you lot to buy Far Cry 2 not two weeks ago, you'd think I'd be pumped as hard and tight as a tire about Far Cry 3. But I'm not, really. Come take a look for…

Run Through The Jungle: Far Cry 3 Revealed

Far Cry 3 has been confirmed for release in 2012. The game returns to the original Far Cry's jungle island setting, but nevertheless producer Dan Hay promises "something new and unexpected" for the game. Ubisoft says: "With Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island. In this…

Let’s Speculate About Far Cry 3

The guys over at VG247 have come up with a bunch of references to the as-yet-unannounced-but-nonetheless-likely third (or fourth, really) instance of the Far Cry series. It seems the game is definitely happening, despite Ubi's lack of noise on the title. Also it's worth noting that the key reference made by a developer working on the game says that the game will be a console…

Far Cry Series To Remain In Africa?

UK-based blogchums Videogaming247 were clever enough to remember to go to Leipzig (unlike us) and consequently they've come back with special Far Cry information. Ubisoft Montreal are, apparently, already in the initial stages of the third Far Cry game. Here's the interesting bit: “There are still things we want to do with the African setting, and I think it’s safe to say we’ll continue to…
