Same here, so many good games coming out though, so I can wait until this one goes down to half price or so.

The hallucination stuff looks by far the most interesting part of this game.

I bet this game will look fantastic and play great on PC.

I like the characters and setting of far cry 2 much more than this.

@das9000: Oh you mean such memorable characters such as south african black mercenary or south african white mercenary? And of course who could forget south african weapons dealer?

December is still a weird time for this game to be coming out.

Hawaiian shirts and no punctuation, what's not to love?

This is going to be great.

@simkas: Better than hollywood cutout badguys with mohawks, necklaces, wrist straps and more buckles than a protag in a jrpg (probably an iphone in the back pocket as well). Say what you want but far cry 2 had a good, unique, coherent flavour. This looks like a generic blockbuster action movie. I want to like the story/setting/characters but it just looks a poorly though out mish mash of concepts. So what do the kids like? Flamethrowers? OK. Tigers? Why the fuck not? Voodoo boobs. Great. I will not be surprised to see zombie dlc.

Whatever I hope the game turns out great.

No, it's not better. I'd rather have generic characters that are still actual characters than to have characters that are just there to tell you to do stuff and that's it.

I second this, with how videogames are marketed these days I don't know if I trust all the hype and trailers.

Only 2 usb ports is still kind of a joke. The 360s now have 5, the least sony could have done is put one on the back so my PS eye isn't reaching to the front. Also I really hated when the psp went to the cheap manual opening for the UMDS, I feel the same way with this drive. I'm actually kinda happy I still have a old 80 GB PS3. I didn't like the first slim either, the buttons triggered the same, this is cheap feeling.

Wut?

Anyway, color me intrigued. I don't know if I like the way this game is shaping up or not, but I do know that I want to see the final product.

@believer258: I was watching the ps3 unboxing and it switched to the far cry video without me noticing before I submitted my comment.....

Yep. And now every game is racist. Good play!

If this game has me doing a Haka I'm on fucking board.

Posted by Tennmuerti

Why not just you know, shoot him?

Still really looking forward to this, looks great.

Posted by super_machine

Please, fix sneaking and AI that don't have x-ray vision like farcry 2. I know its a shooter, but whats the point in having all that dense jungle if you can't sneak up on a dude and take him out quietly without the entire camp knowing. I the original far cry, you had stones you could throw.

Okay, my brain is getting confused.

1. They showed the first footage of the game way back when and it looked fantastic. Some might call it riveting, some might call it a return to the first Far Cry's style, some might have called it a departure instead.

2. Theeen the marketing picked up. Dubstep trailers, iffy psychological twists with television sets and drugs, and the whole "found footage" junk. They've been showing off what are potentially the worst parts of the game for a long time now.

3. Now we get an alright trailer that makes it almost look like a proper Far Cry game. After the aforementioned (and other) crappy things, should we still care? Because frankly if they hadn't pulled any of the marketing stuff noted in 2 which is obviously meant to appeal to the mainstream crowd - if the only trailers for this game were the E3 reveal trailer, this one, and maybe one more in between, I'd actually be interested in the game.

I'm just not sure what to feel anymore.

@AlexW00d: whenever the game "opens its mouth," that's partly when i tune out. it's pretty, but not a lot going on upstairs.

Posted by das9000

@Bell_End: NO, it's too much for my pigeon brain to process

Posted by chilipeppersman

@Colourful_Hippie: hell yes!

Posted by DJJoeJoe

@VVaffley: DO you not remember the first farcry and how it was about mutants or whatever? I think drugs/hallucination are perfectly fine and in the style of farcry.

Bunch of savages in this town.

Posted by ripelivejam

why does this reek of just cause 2 so much? guess it's the high color saturation...

Posted by TheSheepherder

I'm cautiously optimistic about this.

Posted by Kraznor

@simkas: Uh oh, looks like someone didn't "get" Far Cry 2. A pity.

Posted by wewantsthering

I'm weirdly interested in this game now. Far Cry 2 was such a weird, disappointing game that I'd written this one off initially.

Is it just me or is that lady wearing a shirt now when she wasn't before? Or is it a different character?
