  1. Today's game trailers typically stick to a familiar template: overload the viewer with tons of fast-paced action sequences and explosions set to a generic dubstep track and call it a day. And while the latest Far Cry 4 trailer does...

    FC3 was fun, the wingsuit kept me coming back.
    Always fun to ride a quad off the top of some crazy cliff then bail only to speed down the mountainside in the suit.

    To me the Far Cry series died after the first game. Same with the Crysis series. Those two are probably my biggest video game letdowns of all time. *sniff*
    Same with the FEAR series. After the first it went downhill.
    Hmm.. all 3 of these games died after the first game being PC only.

    With all the Garbage Ubisoft has been pulling on their PC games lately, I just can't justify buying any more of their products.

    The last 2 Splinter Cell games shipped and remained unusable in any sort of co-operative state. Watch_Dogs had it's graphics crippled to match consoles. Every single Assassin's Creed release has been clunky and prone to significant FPS drops. The latest edition is pushing 900p @ 30FPS on consoles, no word on PC.

    They seem to have such utter contempt for PC games that enough is enough. They need my money, I don't need their games.

    Agree, Watch Dogs is just not fun playing single on console.

    Yet I found the wingsuit the most dreary, I avoided using it when I could but overall I enjoyed the game even though the story was pretty weak. I still play it from time to time nowadays though.

    IMO it was far worse than FC2 and 3. Fighting monsters and aliens tends to irritate me.

    I wonder if they're planning to annoy PC gamers again capping it at 24 fps and then further insult their intelligence by trying to bs them about great cinematics at that rate.

    I agree, while I like AC series, it is always some bug, performance problem or changed gameplay, that irritates me.

    NEVER pre-order anything, despite how good its trailer might seem or how good previous installments was.

    I think he's saying FC1 was the best and the rest were rubbish.
    FC1 was awesome. I bought it again recently on Steam.
    I have to agree that FC2 was horrible. Clearing out a checkpoint only to return 2 minutes later and all the bandits are back again? I stopped playing the game right there and never returned to it. But FC3 was a good game, I have played it a few times.
  16. Really doesn't look very good. Apart from the dated graphics which is obviously the norm due to consoles holding back the industry. I also wasn't impressed by the physics or lack there of. I very much enjoyed the original Far Cry, I was hoping Far Cry 4 could rekindle that fun I had long ago... oh well.

    There really isn't many games I'm expecting to be good, maybe Just Cause 3 and Mirrors Edge 2... we'll see.
  17. Pre-order now, and we'll throw in a few little tidbits that we should have put in the regular version of the game anyways......

    No, thank you.
