Thumping The Shark: Far Cry 3

What a difference words can make. If I'd seen this new Far Cry 3 video last week, my first reaction would probably have been to chortle about magical tattoo abilities. After reading Jim's thoughts on the game, I'm too giddily excited by watching those abilities in action to spend any time laughing at minor bits of silliness. Far Cry 2 was a mess but it…

An Eyeful Of Far Cry 3’s Multiplayer

In a fashion not entirely dissimilar from real-life games like croquet and sex, first-person shooters have recently started adding "multiple players" modes. Far Cry 3 - in spite of its focus on "singular players" and the islands who love them - is no different. But how does it even work? I mean, we know that its servers are of a fickle, wayward nature, but will…

Sad Tiger: No Dedicated Servers For Far Cry 3 Multi

I wanted to make a picture of one of Far Cry 3's tigers crying gigantic crocodile tears (or maybe one of its crocodiles crying tiger tears - or just tigers) for this post, but I'm rubbish at Photoshop. So, um, use your imagination. Awww, isn't that sad? That tiger - in addition to the fact that a gun-toting madman is cavorting about his island home…

In Which Far Cry 3’s Jason Brody Punches A Shark

Admittedly, Jason does other things in Far Cry 3's new story trailer aside from punching a shark. But really, is there any tale more gripping or universal than that of one dude, one shark, and one fist? The biting, the panicking, the punching as beady little eyes register no pain. In that moment, we find the truest definition of the human condition: not shark. And then, after…

Now With More Jumping Puzzles: 14 Minutes Of Far Cry 3

Yes, jumping puzzles. Far Cry 3 has them. Apparently as something you can do fairly often, no less. That's one of the many revelations that spring up while two of the shooter/arrower/shanker/lawnmower's leads play 14 minutes of their game and chit-chat. It's an impressively illuminating look at many of Far Cry 3's open-world aspects, including base capture and crafting. A lot of it reminds me…

Minecryft: The Official Far Cry 3 Mod For Minecraft

Block by block, like an insidious cubist curse, Minecraft is taking over the gaming world. World of Warcraft was the most recent game to suffer assimilation, in a frightening 1-1 recreation. Usually this sort of labour of love is made by the fans, but Ubisoft are cutting out the post-launch months of people on forums suggesting that someone does it. They've hired Far Cry 3…

From Bad To Vaas: Far Cry 3

Brendan did a spot of de-scaling when he murdered his way through the opening hours of Far Cry 3. Providing a side dish to his words, Ubisoft have released four videos that show how the journey from holidaymaker to hardened warrior begins. It's more tell than show, actually, with producer Dan Hay describing what the scenes are intended to do. The first couple are character-based…

Far Cry 3’s Tribe Goes To War

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…

Far Cry 3’s Maddest Baddies Wax Diabolical

Far Cry 3's villains sure do like to talk. It seems to be something of a pattern: you fight, they tweak their mustaches and monologue ominously, and then you end up tied to a sinking cinder block or on fire or something along those lines. Yet you always live to fight another day and begin the cycle anew. It forces me to wonder: is it…

Jungle Diva: Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 continues to have trailers full of enjoyable activities, like shark-punching and diving out of jeeps just as they explode. It also continues to have trailers with voiceovers that say very silly things. Example: "His privateer army can do a lot more than walk and chew gum at the same time. They've been trained to kill!" Most armies are like the Terminator under…

A Postcard Soaked In Kerosene: Far Cry 3’s Side-Quests

OK, so I'm starting to warm up to this "Agent Huntley" narrator guy Ubisoft's got talking us through the most recent Far Cry 3 videos. He's basically a more tropical Max Payne - which, given recent events in Max Payne's life, means he's basically just Max Payne. The above headline, for instance, is all Huntley - so strong is my love for his vaguely coherent,…
