I've played over 30 hours and am still not finished the main quest-line. I've only just joined up with Hoyt. I've been spending the last several hours taking over every camp and completing every Wanted: Dead sidequest, and am about 2/3 through the Path of the Hunter sidequests. Then I still have all those Trials of the Rakyat, and the official side quest missions, of which I've only done about 1/3. Not sure if i'm going to go hunting for all those treasures (I did get all of those computers though), but I'm definitely taking my time with this game. So much to do.

OMFG you need to get this game, i don't care if you get it now or wait for the first of May but you NEED this game

Let's put it this way, the 3rd mission has you sneak around Tron looking T-Rexes by throwing cyberhearts to get them out of the way, then you use the cyberhearts to have the dragons (what they call em) attack a force fielded bunker with their giant laser death rays, oh and your only weapon in that mission? Tron looking Bow

Same engine as FC3 really, same shooting, same detection as FC3 so the bow is just as awesome (even more even) i had to liberate a garrison exactly like FC3 so i'm sure there's going to be recycled concepts which i'm completely fine with

The voice acting is so well done, cheesy as **** on purpose like 80s scifi action flicks (main character is voiced by Michael Biehn http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000299/

The screen has bars that simulate if you played it on an old TV, the music is orgasmic

Your assault rifle is named Fazertron and the Sniper is named Kobracon, do i really need to say more?

Honestly as i was playing it i was so happy that thing existed but i still couldn't believe it, no ideas how long it's going to be but it's a stand alone so i'm hoping for longer than most DLCs

If you can't wait for the May 1st release you know what to do mates yarrrrr!

In 20 minutes of play, I've seen the following movies referenced

Terminator
Robocop
Commando
Predator
Rocky 4 (Darling's hairstyle...)

They just made use of the Far Cry 3 engine and put it to amazing use.

I'm not gonna play it till I finish another game, but I just activated my code.


They made me input my billing info on a free game code, and now it keeps saying "download failed". They call Origin a piece of crap.....

it's hilarious to shoot the animal cages and watch them absolutely DEMOLISH the stupid outpost pirates.
When they send reinforcements, I pick off just enough to give the tiger/bear/whatever a chance to live, and yet still leave it plenty of targets

I think my only real complaint with Blood Dragon is it would of been better if they took it seriously. The winking and nudging at the content is too much. Still a fun game, very beautiful.

I was surprised by how much I ended up enjoying Farcry 3: that game is nothing but production values but the game was tight and expansive enough to make me play through the whole thing and I really had a lot of fun.

Not sure I'd get this Blood Dragon expansion: 15$ for a super short but hilarious campaign doesn't really do it for me; I'd rather buy some Magic cards.

They are just as vicious in real life if provoked. I remember being on holiday in Australia and a Cassowary showed up at our campsite. Some ******** kid through a rock at it and it went WILD chasing people around the park.

Will probably get the blood dragon expansion, it looks like a lot of fun. I've really enjoyed this game, congrats ubisoft. The characters name is Jason Brody, but he's pretty much John Rambo by the end of it, if you moved it to Southeast Asia and adjusted the locals accordingly I feel like you'd have a pretty good First Blood Part II adaption. Taking down VC outposts!!

Cassowary's are the real life equivalent to Velociraptors.

Oh for ****'s sake Vaas, you finally have the guy down and you don't shoot him in the head? This really bothered me. Hollywood level of unbelievable. Really enjoyed the story until that point. We'll see what happens next.

Just bought this game the other day for my PS3. It's amazing and MUCH better than that steaming pile of rancid **** known as Far Cry 2.

I've done a few Path Of The Hunter challenges, taken a few outposts and have activated 7 radio towers so far. I'm taking my time with the actual storyline.

Where are dingoes located though???

Was swimming and I collected a relic in a cave and as I'm swimming back to shore I come face to face with and get attacked and killed by my first crocodile that I've seen.



Holy **** did that scare me. I think I had multiple heart attacks.
