Pretty excited for it. Didn't really enjoy Far Cry 2 as much I would've hoped, but this seems to be shaping up to be pretty great.

inb4 somebody cries youtube spam but doesn't realize it doesn't apply to new stuff relating to videogames.

As long as its nothing like Far Cry 2 I'll be happy.

Wow, that looks awesome. That mushroom quest reminds of a similar mission in the shivering isles dlc for oblivion and point lookout in fallout 3,

That mushroom part was trippin'.

I hate to say it, but I hope this looks better on the PC than what's being shown here.

Looking very interesting. I assume you have the ability to turn off the minimap or it disappears in certain places (?), since it doesn't seem to be visible everywhere. I really loved not having anything cluttering up the screen in FC2.

Also, what is going on at 2:35? =| Looks like a bunch of terracotta warriors?

Kinda wish I didn't see the part about the mushrooms. I would have enjoyed that part a lot more not knowing about it.

Yeah, I was thinking that too, it really felt a lot like a spoiler D:

Far Cry 3 looks like the type of FPS that I love, and want to play. I'm definitely getting this.

Maybe I need to get my eyes checked, but it looked really cool to me.

Yeah I thought that was PC quality, if that was console footage, I'm stoked.

@Bucketdeth: I'm sure the PC version of Far Cry 2 looked rad, but the Xbox 360 version I played was a damn good looking game too.

I don't understand the hatred for Far Cry 2. I enjoyed the shit out of that game.

I'm super psyched about Far Cry 3, just because shit looks C-R-A-Z-Y!

I bought FC2 day 1 and still play it every now and then. It's one of my favorite games this gen.

But I can understand why many people dislike it. Guardposts respawn too quickly, malaria, travelingl is tedious, AI can see/ hear you from miles away ...

The mushroom trip looked fantastic, I just hope they hadn't spoiled it.

Show me the map editor, Ubisoft!

#21 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Real fucking hyped. Looks pretty damn awesome.

#22 Posted by xyzygy (10064 posts) -

I love Far Cry 2 as well. I thought it was bloody fantastic.

I had to stop that preview. They were giving away a part of the game that looked way too good, and I don't want to spoil the rest of it. So yeah, I'm excited for FC3.

#23 Posted by Deranged (1856 posts) -

Wow... this game looks absolutely stellar. Far Cry 2 was a beautiful game, but this... damn.

#24 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

Far Cry 3 will be a fucking awesome birthday present to myself!

#25 Posted by Brackstone (84 posts) -

Did anyone else find the incoming fire indicators distracting? I guess coming off the minimalist hud of Far Cry 2 it's bound to be more noticeable, but I still hope they tone that down a bit. Otherwise it looks good, but it certainly looks different from the rest of the series in more than a few ways.

Meh. Got burnt by Far Cry 2. I'll just be skeptic until the game comes out.

I never finished Far Cry 2. I crashed and burned on the second map. But what I played was awesome, I just didn't want to do it all over again. I hope they fix the problems with certain structuring and gameplay elements, but still, that game looked cool as hell.
 
Sometimes I would stop and just watch stuff burn.

I'm really looking forward to this one, even if Far Cry 2 wasn't too great.

This. I hope this time the map editor extends to the singleplayer though. Making multiplayer maps was fun but you couldn't do much once the community died and was done making maps or playing them. I'm hoping they do something similar to Infamous 2, allowing users to create their own user generated content. Imagine making your own enemy encounters or just linking a series of zip lines together and roaming around the map. You could create race events from one side of the Island to the next or even have your own brand of horde mode. Please Ubisoft, Pleeeease.

Also for anyone interested Gamespot has some more gameplay footage spliced in between the trailer footage.

Did you watch stuff burn while doing a Beavis voice yelling FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

I've enjoyed every far cry game thats been released. Which yes....I enjoyed the wii port of instincts. Sure, none of them are as good as the original pc game, they have their own attractions. Far cry 2 just felt right. It didn't control perfectly on consoles, but it was flawless on the pc. As long as all you did was the story stuff, it was fine.

As I watched it burn, I would sometimes say, cool.

Seems super arcady yet somewhat RPG-like with its XP. I'm definetly more interested now.

Well it can't really be any worse than 2 can it?
