Re: Far Cry 3 reviews are flooding in.
Done 19 of the main missions now, so basically halfway through the main story. The three missions where you go looking in caverns and shit to find that knife for Buck are badass. The 'Saving Oliver' mission reminded me of the mission in GTA 3 where you have to snipe folks while 8 Ball runs onto the tanker to plant explosives.
Done all of the Wanted Dead side quests on the north island. My new favourite hobby is doing those missions by picking off everybody around the main target with the Shadow and a sniper rifle. That Shadow handgun is fucking aaawesome for stealth kills. Hide in bushes, wait for someone to walk past, drop them. Then when everybody else is dead the main target will get good and hysterical so sneak up and stab him in the throat. Sometimes I'll pull the clip in his grenade and toss him down a hill afterwards just to see him explode post-mortem.
Done all of the rare Path of the Hunter missions minus the Maneater shark that you need to skin to upgrade the final arrow quiver. I never realised that when you'd read the sign and it'd tell you that you have to hunt three bears with an SMG, you could use your own SMG and not the shitty one they provide. Same goes for shotguns, sniper rifles, etc. Those untouchable syringes are going to come in handy when I have to knife a bear to death.
