I think there are a lot of disappointed people out there because Far Cry 4 is not much of a blockbuster. Nice graphics and new area, but everything else is almost identical to 3.

What's wrong with that? A lot of people buy sequels because they loved the previous game. I would play a completely different game if I'm looking for something new. But If I want more Far Cry, I'll play Far Cry 4. That's how it goes.

Exactly. I loved FC3 so I bought FC4. Looking forward to playing it this week

And this time with co-op! How could you not like a triple A, open-world game with co-op? It's sooo much fun playing with a friend!

Awesome news! I really enjoyed the first 2 even with the design flaws. Hopefully they've learned from their mistakes to make an even better game!

Obligatory:

Does it remove the suck?


That's one thing FC4 does not do. It's an amazing game. I've played for 8 hours and I think I'm not even 10% through. So much to do. The addition of elephants is so awesome!


I have an issue of every once and a while the screen will flicker. It's kind of annoying. It's probably a driver bug.

Don't listen to the game trolls. This game is awesome!

There's already been an announcement that you can get your money back for the game regardless if you've played the alpha/beta. They might just refund you the price of the "game" minus the additional cost of joining the alpha/beta.

I would think there's going to be some push back against handing out refunds to people who have buyers remorse for spending so much on accessing the alpha version especially since it was $300.

People really paid $300 for a game that was in alpha? lmao

What a horrible review of Divinity: Original Sin! Half the fun in this game is making tons of money by stealing and building your crafting character and quickly crafting items. The reviewer talks like he doesn't even want crafting in the game. Umm, it's an RPG. RPG fans like crafting items, and this game executes it quite well! He talks like it's difficult to manage your inventory, but it's actually one of the easiest games I've played when it comes to inv management. All you do is right-click and send to your crafting character. How hard is that?? And the best thing is that right from the start and throughout the game, you can keep your crafting flowing quite easily. There's not much of any "store until you're higher level" type crap like in other games. You craft things from start to finish with no downtime, so generally, your other 3 character's inventory is pretty much empty through the whole game!

Then he goes on about tedious quests. This game has some of the most interesting quests I've seen in an RPG! It's as if he didn't even play the game!

But the worst thing about this review is that he didn't even touch on the co-op feature of this game. That is how you play it! And what's cool is that when you play with a friend, both of you can control 2 of the party members! So much fun! So generally, one player can focus on the crafting flow and the other can focus on the quests and figuring out where to go next. It's a perfect balance and flow to make the game quite fun!

Don't listen to this bozo on the adventure gaming site. He doesn't know how to play the game, and doesn't appreciate the genre. This game is a lot of fun!

I dropped Chrome on my pc in favor of IE11. I'm liking outlook online way better better than google web apps, and gmail is horrible! They should just change the name to spymail.

I hope they fix the character animations. When you're walking around, you look like a toddler in steath mode. Other than that, the environment looks great.

There's definitely cult pockets of Win phone users. One example would be teens not wanting their parents to be too familiar with their phone. I see my friend's kids and their friends using them like power users. Almost like the way pc users were back in the early 90s! Have you seen the app store lately? Some very strange and interesting apps that can't be found on the other app stores. They're definitely the underdog, but they do have devoted users for sure.

I knew this game was going to suck. They should have made it more of a survival co-op game and less single-player crappy save point console game. Why do game designers insist on releasing games like this that no one wants? I mean, how many games do you have to see fail before you go in a different direction?

What are you talking about? Tons of people wanted to see a single-player survival horror game set in the Alien universe. As for the save system, that's a design choice, not a console limitation. There are plenty of console games with quicksave. Isolation is a survival horror game. It relies on tension. Quicksave destroys tension because it removes any sense of risk or consequence. If you're making a survival horror game and you have quick save, you've already failed.

Did you even read the reviews? Trying to get through a single checkpoint 20 odd times isn't exactly a high tension survival game, it's just frustrating the player. But if that's the kind of game you're defending, then be my guest... go buy it, and have fun getting frustrated. lol

When you're 22 years old and look at this post from 10 years ago, you'll have the mother of all facepalms.

Oh I remember the days that you had to retry 20 times until you discovered the well hidden trick to win the battle. But that was 10+ years ago (like you said). These days, games are generally designed so that the flow is little more non stop. But hey, if you like die/restart, die/restart type games, I could send you a nice list of them that will keep you busy through all you that disposable free time that you have.

I definitely agree with that DOS review. It's deep, lots to do, fun, funny, and reminds me of why I'm still a pc gamer. Hats off to the devs!

DayZ is kind of a phenomenon. Create a concept instead of game, attract sociopaths, and watch the money come rolling in. Genius!
