Far Cry 5 (PC/PS4/XB1)

  • @SabotageTheTruth Super not surprised. One of my first thoughts after seeing the trailer was of all the people who were going to complain about it.
    It's probably not gonna do well in certain parts of America...

    But that Preacher is pretty cool. I'm excited to see more of him.

  • @SabotageTheTruth said in Far Cry 5 - (PC/PS4/XBO):

    Apparently, there's a "controversy" online, where certain people think this game is targeting the religious right... Super glad those accusations haven't arisen here because that's beyond ridiculous.

    Snowflakes. Y'know there've been literally four games before this where players were shooting up nonwhite people and their fictionalized cultures. It's silly for the first one about Americans to suddenly be labeled 'white genocide simulator.' If that were true we'd need the Halo announcer to emphatically say 'quadri-
    genocide' for all the other games not about 'heartland' Americans.

    People need to laugh at themselves just a little bit. Harshly reacting to cliche works with broad anti-religion and anti-military themes is so 2000. (And I bet, I'm sure there Far Cry 5 will be filled with lines like 'As the perspective character for this game, I respect good lawful Christian family values, but I cannot condone this crazy cannibal cult in a made up county of Montana.')

  • @SabotageTheTruth As a Christian, I am super excited for this game hahaha. People need to relax, still have no clue what the cults interpretation of Christianity is.

  • I for one am glad to be represented properly in a game (except the christian thing), too bad I'd have to play as the "hero" though.

  • I wish it would be wild west.

    this looks very boring and generic imo. will be another far cry 3 recycle.

  • @Black-Cell Wild west comes next year with RDR2.

  • Really impressed by it, that trailer was fucking amazing too, literally R* level for me.

    Makes a nice change that we get to kill some White religious nutters for a change too, custom-characters means I can make a bad-ass female character to slaughter the fools, 2-player co-op sounds good too, hope it's matchmaking-enabled and drop-in/drop-out though.

    Love seeing all the right-wing types getting angry with it already too, very funny.

  • Far Cry 5 delayed till March 27

    Just a small delay for Far Cry. After the initial buzz and getting my hands on it at EGX, I'm not really thinking too much about this game. Maybe I've hit fatigue with the series.

    My problem is that they're still basically just rehashing FC3. There is nothing particularly inspired or interesting in FC5. The setting is also boring as hell. As of this point in time I'm most likely not getting FC5.

  • A good review and some great editing by Brandon. Nicely done.

    I'm not hungry for some Far Cry action right now, but it's good to know that there's a solid game waiting when the time eventually hits for me.

  • I have no interest in this game, but Brandon's review was fantastic. First time in a while I've noticed the quality of the writing in a review (not that EZA reviews are ever poorly written, just that this one had lines that really jumped out at me without seeming forced). Also the opening montage is stellar.

  • My BF is super excited for this, and I'm excited to watch him play it.
    He's a fan of these sandbox explosion games but he's been super excited for this since seeing Cheeseburger. I'm thrilled to see that review confirm that he'll love it.

  • will grab it on cheap sale. FC games are ok but become very boring towards the end.

    and this basically feel like another rehash of far cry 3.

  • Started it out this evening, I'm having a lot of fun so far! I only played 3 back in the day and loved it, skipped 4 and Primal, so I'm ready for this!

  • Has anyone given Arcade mode a real shot? I won't be buying this at full price (got some budget constraints, nothing against the game) but it looks like that mode could be something special.

  • @sabotagethetruth It's not super great right now, but there's some great potential there. It's also pretty great that playing in arcade gives you money and perks for the main game.
    It should be pretty good down the line.

  • Been playing it a hour or two at a time between jobs, really enjoying it so far, should hopefully get a chance to do some coop this weekend.

    Sidenote really enjoy the music in some parts.

    I really want to play this, but frickin' newborns be all like "hey spend all your time and money and attention on me".
    Better calm that shit down by the time God of War comes out is all I'm say'n.


    oh my god i love him so much

    @el-shmiablo Lol but congrats dude! Might have a future ally right there? ;)

    Im really going forth and back with this game. I want to get it but there are so much stuff in it which also puts me off. Im kinda in a fatigue of open world games at the moment and I fear that if I pick this up I will end up playing maybe 10 hours then drop it to never be played again.

    Also, this is awesome
