Home Video: Far Cry 2 Compilation

Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

Far Cry 2 is fun online. Sure, it can be laggy as hell, but god damn. I love that 50 caliber sniper. I made a compilation of kills over the course of four matches. It took me a while to make, but took even longer to upload since I wanted to use YouTube's new HD feature. This is why I urge you to click on the video and click "watch in HD". There's a double-kill, some sweet healing animations (the last one makes me sick to my stomach every time) and I shoot a guy in a hang-glider!

Nice video... the hang-glider part was pretty cool. Funny thing is, I have this game, but have to yet to try multiplayer.

Is there a Far Cry 2 multiplayer community on the PC?

Not really, they ported the console matchmaking paradigm to it, lock, stock, and barrel. The game kicks you out of ranked lobbies every time a game ends. Join in progress for ranked games is disabled, so when somebody quits from a team nobody can come and replace them, and most of the games shown on the list cannot be joined because they've already started. Ubi's online service is somewhat unreliable. Custom maps cannot be played in ranked games, and ranked unlocks are not accessible in unranked games.

TL;DR: Basically it's a major clusterfuck on PC.

Very nice. Although I believe this youtube HD feature you mentioned isn't much of a difference than the standard, this one's only wider. For the quality, either the filmer had a shit camera or it's just youtube.
