Flash! Bang! Wallop! Far Cry 5 adds photo mode today

Lay down your guns and pick up a lens. Stop shooting faces and start shooting landscapes. Look away from that sniper scope to peer down a telephoto zoom.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R In The Realities

If you're going to do cosplay, don't dress up as some manga character with a purple sash - it's too easy. If you're going to do it, do it with S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
