Re: Far Cry 3 reviews are flooding in.
Killed my first bear. Must've been one of them retarded bears because I kept shooting at it and it just kept running around in circles. Fuck it, a win's a win. When one starts fighting back I'll be up shit creek, though. Had to empty about 7 full SMG clips into this one before it bit it. I won't have the time to do that when it's trying to swipe my head off while I run around screaming like a six year old girl.
Unless I use that AMR on it. Found 20 relics and unlocked that bad boy, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. That fucker will put a hole through anything from a mile away. The only drawback is that it is so loud anybody within a fucking six thousand mile radius will hear it and immediately swarm the area it came from. That kind of goes against my Tarzan Hitman of the Jungle with a Bow and Arrow approach, but shit, it kills EVERYTHING with, like, one shot...I guess it's an okay trade-off. Plus, planting C4 on the ground around your position, shooting someone with the AMR and waiting for a bunch of pirates to close in on you before detonating the C4 and blowing them pieces is one of the better ways to clear a roadblock that I've come across.
Finally ran into some dingos. I don't really go hunting per se, as in actively searching for an animal, as opposed to just roaming around and going through the game at my leisure, killing what I need to when I come across it. Because you tend to just "run into" most things at some point. I've racket up about 15 tiger skins without actually looking for tigers. Ran into a herd of about 10 buffalo earlier and got everything I needed from them in one go. Only thing I'm tempted to actually go hunting is leopards since I need 3 more skins and haven't seen a great deal of them, but I'll stick to what I'm doing and get what I need when I run across it.
Speaking of leopards (kinda); can you skin animals that you personally haven't killed? Because I saw a fight between a leopard and some pirates, and the pirates won. I could see the glowing body from where I was camped out (on a rock about fifty feet away), but when I went to go skin it it was gone. I looked for ages, too. If you CAN reap the benefits of somebody else's hard work, I really wish there was an icon that'd show up on the radar to indicate where there's a lootable body. I mean, I've set a tiger loose in an outpost and it's killed everybody in sight, and I've been able to loot the dead bodies. I'd assume it works the same when it's the humans killing the animals...right?
Unlocked the fire arrows. Gonna wreak havoc.
I never had terribly high expectations for this game going in (I'm not much of a video game guy and rarely get excited about one coming out), but man it is fucking good.
