Was Far Cry 3 an early start to the year of the shark?

You can drive with your dog in the front seat...GOTY 2013 for sure.

#4 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2212 posts) -

I would love it if you could use an attack dog as a weapon in this game.

#5 Posted by Lazyaza (2169 posts) -

Oh man that last screen is almost selling me on the game. All I need now is some actual gameplay showing the shooting being competent and I'm good, first Rockstar game I'll have bought since GTA4.

Is a dog one of your homies? That would be pretty dope. Especially if you can take it with you into vehicles other vehicles...

The twist is that your dog calls you every once in a while to go bowling or to take him to the dog park.

SHARKS! I am now 30% more interested in GTA V.

#14 Posted by Th3irdEye (252 posts) -

This looks alright but it just brings me down to think what it might have been like on new hardware. I really hope they put out a beefed up PC version. Why didn't they wait until next gen? WHY!

The shooting was 100x better in RDR and even better-ER! in Max Payne 3.

Oh God please let me take my dog bowling! Jeez, and goddamn sharks? I swear after Neptune in the Resident Evil remake, those fuckers have always been weakness of mine... Just too bad I couldn't have taken my revenge in Far Cry 3. Hopefully this'll suffice; RPG in yo FACE.

You fucking ruined me you amphibious shit!

I hope this game mixes the serious tone of GTA4 with the silliness/craziness of San Andreas outside of the main plot.

#19 Posted by Subjugation (4718 posts) -

Submarines? Back in my day you avoided the water in GTA at all costs . . .

#20 Posted by mustachioeugene (499 posts) -

If you can take the dog in the submarine, this will be the greatest game ever made.

#21 Posted by GetEveryone (4455 posts) -

So ridiculously hype for this. Does anyone know if it's seeing a simultaneous PC release? I' 'll almost definitely be double- dipping otherwise.

#22 Posted by Banshee (120 posts) -

@GetEveryone: It's definitely not releasing on the PC simultaneously. All we've gotten from Rockstar is that the PC version "is up for consideration."

#23 Edited by Giantstalker (1533 posts) -

The F16 is a beautiful aircraft, really dig them using a real design

EDIT: Whoa, I was wrong. The back end is from an... F18? Think the air intake is different, too. Ah, well.

SHARKS CONFIRMED. Also dawwwwwwwwwgs.

GTA IV already mixed a serious tone with goofiness. That's one of the reasons why it seemed a bit all over the place and directionless. To me, anyway. Like, a super serious ass story just doesn't exactly match a scenario like making a phone call inside a wrecked car upside down, while people around you just seem not to notice.

#26 Posted by Lazyaza (2169 posts) -

@awesomeusername: True enough but I've learned too many times to never expect a games design and mechanics to be great just because a prior title made by the same studio was. Staff changes happen, team leads mix around, people leave, hell for all we know most of the people working on GTA5 had almost nothing to do with Red Dead or Max Payne =P Still, I'm optimistic that it at least won't be as awful as GTA4's shooting was haha.

Driving around with a rottweiler in the front seat says good things about the tone of this game.

All of the screens have been on consoles, and considering how bad GTA4 was on PC I can't imagine they will bother with 5. Did it even sell remotely well on PC at all? Game looks eeeeeeeeeeh.

You were only wrong in that you were right both times. It's clearly a double-tailed aircraft, with potential space for a second engine exhaust there (though it does seem more shaped to one large one instead), as following a similar scheme of the beloved F-18, but the cockpit canopy, as well as main intake under the fuselage, and even the curvature of the forward wing sections on the side of the fuselage all point to the F-16. I think it's only fair to say that Rockstar's satirical nature in game design (including their vehicles and pseudo branding) has held through the design of that aircraft, and made a very interesting F-16/18 hybrid. It's just different enough to avoid legal troubles.

On the topic of the game's much-awaited release, I hope Rockstar steps up soon and decides to make a proper PC version for this game that clearly deserves it. Not that I won't double down again if necessary, but it would be nice keeping all of my fun in that game contained to a single platform from the start, instead of splitting my literally hundreds of hours fucking around in that world between two.

Edit: For additional F-16 markings, note the position of the tail section, seated full back instead of slightly ahead as on the F-18, as well as the downward-angled horizontal flight surfaces of the tail, and see similar small fins on upper and lower fuselage towards the rear of the aircraft. The sensor spike on the nose is also a rare addition to the F-18, which houses most of its sensors under the nose cone and on the tips of its various flight surfaces.

Fucking awesome. Love the submarine, and I love the last screen. The night time lighting, Trevor's jacket. Boss.

#33 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

What up video game? How about you, me and a controller get together later. I'll keep the vibrate on.

#34 Posted by cutyoface (541 posts) -

This game looks better and better every time I see it.

#35 Posted by Fjordson (2448 posts) -

@Lazyaza: I believe the majority of the teams at each R* studio are separate, but every R* game since GTA III has had pretty much the same core group of people at the helm (namely Leslie Benzies and the Houser brothers) and every game from them since Table Tennis has been on the RAGE engine using Euphoria physics. Traditionally you're spot on of course with all of the shuffling around and turnover in the industry, but there is an element of continuation when it comes to R* games I think because of the aforementioned elements.

This is sort of separate to what you're talking about, but Dan Houser's also said that they're bringing in some leads from the Midnight Club LA to help develop the driving system with them. Pretty neat I think, hopefully it turns out well.

Fuck yes. The driving physics in MC:LA are sublime. Still my favorite open-world driving game, even over Forza Horizon.

Now bring in the shooting / movement from Max Payne 3 and you have the ultimate game.

I think Far Cry 3 has shark'd me out.
