FarCry3.jpgYou might remember at few days back made a post talking about the new features coming to Far Cry 3.  If you own a copy for the PC the patch is out.  All so if you own a Xbox 360 copy the it out today (March 5, 2013) as well.  I have a copy for my PS3 so I have to wait until tomorrow, March 6, 2013.  It’s no big deal I can wait an extra day.   Think it will be a blast to take over all the outposts again with all the skills and weapons unlocked.  The patch has all kinds fixes for single and multiplayer.  You can see the most update list on those fixes > here.

Far Cry 3 New Features

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 25, 2013 by getbent57

FarCry3.jpgNot sure how many posts I have made about Far Cry 3 but I am making another one.  Last week Ubisoft put out some info on new features and changes coming to the game.  They didn’t say when the patch was coming out but I hope it is soon.    Because the coolest thing they are doing is letting the player to reset all the outposts.  This is one of the best parts of the game, taking over the outposts.  There is a catch.  You have to have taken over all the outposts to be being with and finished the game.  Another thing they are adding to the single player is a new difficulty setting called Master.  That makes the game more difficult.  They are all so adding new features to the multiplayer map maker stuff.   You can see all the changes they are adding  > here.   I am a bit excited for this outpost reset option.  Now that I have all the good gear and all this skills unlocked it will make it more fun to try out different ideas on how to take over an outpost.   Will yet you know then the patch is released.

FarCry3.jpgYes, I am talking about Far Cry 3 yet again.  This time because last night got 100% finished in the game.  That means found all the hidden items, did all the missions/ side missions, unlocked all the skills and weapons.  Now I am working to see if I can get all the trophies (or achievements if you have and Xbox 360).  If I do that will be the first game that I got them all in.  Came close in one other game.  But as you can tell this is one of my, if not, all time favourite games.  There is still things I want to do in the game.  After putting about 50 hours just into the single player mode.  I want to get all the paint jobs for all the weapons.   Have most of those all ready.  Think there may be four or five left to do.  Spent some time into the co-op mode as well.   Have to say that is pretty fun.  The only thing I wish I could do in that is pick the level to play.  Because some time I end up playing the same level a lot.  Still haven’t see some of them yet.  If you have not tried this game yet.  Go and get it.  A must buy.

Far Cry 3 Multiplayer/Co-Op

FarCry3.jpgBack again talking about Far Cry 3.  Have pretty much done all you can do in the single player.  Just about half of the idols left and may be go after some of the trophies.  So decided to give the multiplayer a try.   It was ok.  Didn’t find it fun.  Like most games now a days it has the Call of Duty elements to  it.   With all the levelling up and unlocking stuff.  Only played one round of team deathmatch.   Thought I would give co-op a try.  Once I got into a match it was pretty fun.  Only played one part of a mission but it work and play great.  Going to go and give it another try.  Just like if the multiplayer you level up and stuff as well.  Would like to try all the co-op missions just to see how good it can be.  Think I will download the free missions they put out last week.

Far Cry 3 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on January 25, 2013 by getbent57

FarCry3.jpgFinished off the main storyline in Far Cry 3 last night.  So it is time for a review.  Start off saying this is the funniest game I have played in a very long time.  Have played games that I liked and were some what fun.  But this one sucked me right in.  So far I have put in 42 hours or so in and was not boarded once.   Mind you the the game is not prefect but comes very close.   The problems I do have with it take place in the main story line.  This is an open world game.  But during the story missions its more a linear.  Don’t have a real problem with the linear part.  It is just if you don’t do what the game wants you to do, you end up dying.  So you have to start all over again.   The must frustrating parts are the two “big boss”’ battles.  Think I died about 10 times trying to get the last boss.  It comes down to quick time events.  If you are not fast enough or push the wrong button, you die and start all over.  After the game loads up again.   Don’t let that stop you from getting the game.   For all the complaining there are 10 awesome things for every one bad thing.

This is an open world FPS that got it right.  Exploring the living world with all the animals, taking over the bad guys outposts and all the side mission stuff is so awesome.  Have played for about 42 hours and there is still some stuff I have left to do and want to got back in and do them.  There is still more still haven’t tired multiplayer and co-op yet.   Have been telling very one I talk to, to go and buy this game.

5 out of 5 (GT = Good Time)  This is a must buy.

FarCry3.jpgBack talking about Far Cry 3.  This is the funniest game I have played all year.  There is so much to do and look at.  Everything flows together very nicely.  Never do you feel like you are taken out of the game when you do a side mission or mini game.  Speaking of missions.   Have put about 12 hours into the game so far.  Spent about 99% of the time doing side missions,  exploring the world, crafting upgrades and upgrading my guys skills.  So I went back to so the story line mission.  I had to laugh because it was still part of the tutorial mission.   It was set up so to be done when you first start playing.   But I had all kinds of up grades and skills it was a walk in the park.   Found a great help section of are IGN.com > here.   It is a great Wiki on very thing about the game.  I use it mostly for the interactive map and crafting help.  Have been telling very one I know to go and get this game you will not be disappointed.  So now I telling all those who might read this, go get this game.

FarCry3Received a copy of Far Cry 3 as a gift.  From the videos and pictures I have seen it looked good.  But I was shocked how awesome it is.  There is so much to look at, so much to do.  It is easy to get distracted.  So far all that is in one small corner of the map.  The map its self is huge.  The world is one of the most amazing things I have seen in any game.  It feels alive.  There is all kinds of different wildlife ever were.   Some of them will attack you.  When playing the opening mission, which is a tutorial of shorts,  was heading up a path.  I kept hearing a hissing sound.   Looking around trying to see were it was coming from and bam it jumped at me.  Scared the shit out of me.  The animals do sever a another purpose as well.  There is a nice crafting system.  You use the different hides to improve things for your character.  Have put a few hours into this so far and have to say it is one of the best games I have every played.  Pretty sure it will win some game of the year awards.
