Re: Far Cry 3 reviews are flooding in.

Just a quick burst with the Shredder Gun and Tigers go down quite easy. Its funny when you get the perk where when you walk/crawl you are nearly soundless, you can sneak past one without even noticing them, all of a sudden you hear one right next to you lol!!!

Think im nearly at the end of the main missions, something like 60% overall complete, about 43 hours in total

Re: Far Cry 3 reviews are flooding in.

It's funny how you enjoyed Far Cry 2 a lot more than 3, because I'm the exact opposite. There were moments in that game that I did enjoy but were just overshadowed by annoying, and unnecessary stuff. But I agree about the Wallet, that was annoying. Not in the way you described it but because I literally had nothing to spend it on other than a little ammo here and there, so I always had a full wallet. I enjoyed hunting for skins.

The chopper part, escaping with your brother, was absolutely the best rail shooting scene in any video game ever! "Flight of The Valkyries" blaring sealed the deal. I loved it.

I chose to kill my friends and stay with Citra. Anyways, you end up fucking her (literally) right after you go on a crazy trip. But then she pulls a praying mantis and kills you (so hopefully Jason wasn't shooting blanks or she'll feel stupid) and you die. Then You wake up on the island, perfectly fine and keep exploring. alright I guess, I hope the other ending is better.


I'm sad now, I'm all done. I still love exploring and looking for everything though, so I'll keep doing that. I'm trying co-op next. GOAT's theme song is in the GOAT game.
Just completed it too:

Spoiler for spoilers:
The "Flight of The Valkyries" blazing out was fucking ace, made it more special, i did kinda hate the way you killed Hoyt and Vaz with the strange cut scenes, oh i chose to save my friends

Re: Far Cry 3 reviews are flooding in.

So a gun with a sound suppressor seems like it's pretty much essential, at least early in the game. I mean, maybe if you're not shitty at video games then you won't have any trouble going balls to the wall and tearing groups of six or more pirates to shreds with an assault rifle and a handful of grenades, but any time I tried that I got riddled with bullet holes and death. Having a gun with a suppressor or the hunting bow can make life so much easier. The bow can be tricky, but on the other hand, IT MAKES NO FUCKING NOISE. Making noise will get you fucked in this game.

The other good thing about the bow is that it will make your dick sing when you use it to snipe some motherfucker. Like, I used it to kill a deer AND a tiger and I thought that was just the greatest (it cannot be said enough how rubbish I am at video games, so I tend to get immense enjoyment out of something as simple as not being mauled by a tiger or burned to death by a suicidal pirate with a Molotov cocktail strapped his chest). Then I was aimlessly roaming around as I'm wont to do (pretty much all I've done is bounce around and kill animals and find items and it's great) and stumbled onto a group of pirates. There were only three of them, so I waited for one to walk away from the group, snuck up behind him and did a takedown kill (and I've got the skill where you can drag the body away afterwards so I kind of chucked his corpse in the ocean). Then I hid behind a tree, shot an arrow through one of their faces, then shot an arrow through the other one's face before he even finished panicking. It was some fucking, like, IDK, that thing from Lord of the Rings that Orlando Bloom plays. It was some of THAT shit. First arrow, death. Second arrow, death. Two seconds flat. Then you casually walk up to them and take the arrows back before looting their bodies for an empty lighter and $12. It was the fucking greatest and totally worth the money whoever bought me this paid for it.

I now use the bow as my primary weapon. I am fucking Tarzan of the jungle.

Started liberating outposts now with my Tarzan bow. Managed to do one without anybody spotting me for the 1500 exp bonus. Arrow right through the nuts'll do that. Also descrambled about 7 radio towers, and yeah, don't buy guns. Unscramble radio towers to get a ton of free stuff. Buy a fucking sound suppressor, though. And a god damn Tarzan bow like a fucking man.

Feels like I'm sort of getting the hang of this now. Wouldn't necessarily say I'm good at it, but I don't feel utterly useless, either. I've gone from "Man, I fucking suuuuuck" to "Shit, I might be halfway competent at this." You have to appreciate the little things, you know?

I'll start doing some actual missions soon. Probly.

all I used was a bow myself, I recommend the marksman sight (better than red dot). plus you get
grenade arrows and fire arrows later on. But, once you get 20 reilcs (which sounds like you'll do quickly) you unlock the signature sniper (AMR) which one shot kills anything. I just cycled those two guns and went HAM everywhere.

start using your C4 to create distraction too, along with the bow. Then you'll feel like Rambo part III

I guess I thought the more unusual mechanics in FC2 all added to the atmosphere - you're in a harsh environment, everyone's trying to kill you - even your own body - and your guns don't work very well for very long. Now survive, you son of a bitch. It added up to a whole that was more than the sum of its parts.

Whereas FC3 just feels like an Assassin's Creed game that can't stop imagining Just Cause 2 having weird, elaborate sex with FC1. The pieces don't quite fit together right. If they had ditched some of the mini-games and focused more on immersiveness than busywork (WHY DID THEY DITCH FC2'S IN-GAME MAP IT WAS PERFECT), it'd be one of my favourite games ever.

Aw hell, this sounds spectacular. What's the best way to use C4? I know sticking it somewhere and blowing the fucker, but, like...tactically, I mean. And yeah, I'm using the marksman sight on the bow.

This game could do with a Red Dead Redemption style "black 'x' on the radar where there's a lootable body/dead animal/whatever". When I'm out in the middle of the ocean and I'm hunting sharks, if I happen to kill one by running it over with a speedboat I'd like to know where exactly its body sunk to. As opposed to having to swim around looking for a dead shark in an ocean full of not dead sharks that want to fucking kill me. There's also been a few times where I've killed a goat or tapir or some other shitty animal that runs away and its body has wound up rolling down a hill and disappearing somewhere. The grass is long and there's a shit ton of shrubbery. When you ice a goat with an arrow to the face from 100 feet away and it rolls down a hill, I want to be able to find my kill at the other side of that hill. Partly because I want my arrow back, and partly because of the principle of it. That dead goat is my trophy. I want what is mine. I'm also pretty sure I killed about forty Komodo dragons one time and only found four of them to skin. I need one more to make something that I'm pretty sure is useful. With the black 'x' on the radar I could've had twenty more.

Not a big complaint or anything, but I'm an idiot and I need all the help I can get.

I'm able to carry four guns now. I don't really need it with me, but I'm glad I can carry around my pimped out Magnum without having to sacrifice my bow, assault rifle or silenced SMG. That little bastard is lethal. Took out a group of pirates with that alone. Two body shots from it and you're pretty much fucked. One to the head and forget about it. Of course, I'm still fucking with the regular pirates and one or two chargers, so I imagine I'll reach a point of diminishing returns once the heavies start showing up.
