Far Cry 5 (PC/PS4/XB1)



  • 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.

    @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

    I'm actually playing through FC4 right now since I picked it up for suuuper cheap but never gave it a fair shake.

    Really enjoying it, and slightly satiating my desire to spend money I don't have on 5.



  • @lotias
    Was kinda fearing the same thing, but just enough is done differently with its open world structure that it's rather refreshing. Hell one thing I've noticed myself is that I'm not fast traveling to places just to get to the next mission. I'll take the long way, and usually find 6 or 7 things along the way.



  • Really enjoying my time with it so far!

    One gripe I have is the frequency of "emergent" encounters that keep popping up. You can't walk 5 meters without some sort of mini event to spawn, a guy to kill, a truck to loot, a wild animal to attack you... It never, ever stops. There are times when I will kill some dudes and not even have time to loot their bodies before another group shows up!

    To make matters even worse, because of that constant spawning, the game also seems to unspawn older encounters to free up memory, which means I've shot a truck, got intercepted on my way to loot it by spawned cultists, dealt with them, tried to go loot them, got intercepted by others, killed them, then turned around to find the truck had disappeared, all in a span of 30 seconds. Soooooo that's unpleasant, would be nice if they refined the pacing a bit in a patch.

    But overall it's still a very fun, goofy and relaxing experience. I just triggered my first main story sequence (I think), so I'll have more thoughts about that later.



  • Apparently PS4 Pro comes with Far Cry 5 without any additional cost. So which game should I get when I trade Far Cry 5 in: Shadow of the Colossus or Ni No Kuni II?



  • @pat It is not bashing Christians thankfully. You have the good priest and there are even missions where you protect memorials from the cultists - and that’s what extremists do, is to instrumentalise religion for their own agenda. Happy Easter brother!



  • @dipset Not sure why you ask that in the threat for the game, but if you're going to the obvious answer is Ni No Kuni 2 of course.

    I'm having Horizon Syndrome with this game, everything I see about it makes me want to play it, but I fear that I will get annoyed fast and then never touch it again, just like with Horizon ZD.
    I'm not a Far Cry fan (SUPRISE!) I only ever played Far Cry Instincts on Xbox, but unlike the other Far Cry games that all play in some exotic place, this one has a setting that interests me, just like Horizon.



  • @musou-tensei

    I'm being a shit head



  • Maybe a slight spoiler to some, but this game probably broke the record for the amount of times the protag is captured, not killed and then escapes. It's absurd how many times it happens. Every time it happens (which interrupts you btw) you're rewarded with one of the low-points of the game as well. These also happen when you do the things you'd rather be doing in said area. Some brilliant design right there.



  • Youtube Video

    The scene starting at around the 2 minute mark might be one of my favorite reactions from any of the Allies ever. Ugh, really itching to play this game the more I see, I think I'm going to boot up FarCry 4 to satiate some of that desire.



  • That Checkin' Out video was really nicely put together. Ben was somehow super genuine all the time and just having fun. Boomer and Cheeseburger talk was endearing, and of course that wolverine attack and his following reaction is already One of the all-time Greats. :)



  • I've been seeing a lot of comments, including from Ben & Huber on the latest Frame Trap, how "Nowhere is safe" and they're constantly being barraged with enemy spawns.

    I'm completely baffled as to what people are talking about. I'm playing on hard, and I don't run into this at all. You can't sit on the main roads without moving and expect to have no one come after you. This seems awfully realistic, as Eden's Gate controls that area, and will be reporting on your location. I typically stay on the move and I never feel like I can't shake enemies. You won't be killing every last one and be able to sit in a main area.

    Stealth is also commented as being impossible to do, which I find to be incorrect as well. It's difficult to do, and you can't have a body drop within a range of other enemies, but if you do it quickly there's typically little issues. There are bases where enemies are close enough together that stealth isn't viable, but if you are guarding a base you shouldn't really have your men stationed so that they can't see if another gets killed.
