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 still managed to produce some of the finest moments I've ever experienced in an FPS, so when I see the words "it has kept what was good...and builds on everything else", damn straight the lens through which I view the trailers changes. Very excited.

It is perhaps no surprise that a game set on an island has great difficulty crossing oceans. It's out on November 29th in Europe, November 30th in the UK and December 4th in the US. Along with Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry won't be available on Steam in the UK, although Ubi haven't specified why and the situation may change. We'll find out what we can.

Uplay won't be the only option for purchase, with several other digital distributors gladly accepting British monetary offerings.
