Far Cry 3 Dr. Earnhardt Trailer

Ubisoft has released a new trailer from Far Cry 3 showing off gameplay centered on the Dr. Earnhardt character in the upcoming first-person shooter sequel. Here's their description: "Check out the action-packed shooter gameplay and immersive world of Far Cry 3 through the troubled eyes of Dr. Earnhardt, the island's resident 'pharmacist.' Use an arsenal of weapons, explosives and vehicles to fight against the island's ruthless and deranged inhabitants. Explore a stunning and treacherous environment, filled with diverse terrain, exotic creatures and mind-bending botanicals." See if you can convince the bouncer you're old enough to view this:

Apparently I am the only one that is sick to fucking death of this one man army shit.

So basically, you want every game to be either a squad-based tactical shooter or a survival horror game?

Anyway, I just hope they learned from Far Cry 2. If they still have generic side-missions, retarded enemy respawn logic and stupid pressure mechanics (such as needing to take malaria pills), the game will fail just as hard.

Yeah games need to stop with this hero bullshit. I wanna be the nameless grunt in platoon 32 who dies on the first mission when a friendly grenade goes off, and that's it, roll credits.

"Does it have to be sick and demented to get across that the head bad guy is crazy?"

If you want to sell big in America this is a must. Throw in some ultra thin, perfectly built but anatomically impossible big titted, bubble butt woman that can miraculously beat the shit out of grown men 5x bigger than her and you have the game that has been selling for the past 15 years.

Rinse repeat.

Apparently I am the only one that is sick to fucking death of this one man army shit.

For me, it`s about the visuals, freedom of movement, and the overall setting. Gonna be amazing immersion factor... much like FarCry 1.

3. I'll probably get lambasted for saying this, but it's pretty fuckin' violent. Does it have to be sick and demented to get across that the head bad guy is crazy? Yeah, yeah, I know, Who cares? But damn, it's like every FPS has to up the last one on the violence meter. I can see it if it relates to the story itself, but watching bad guys murder innocent, tied-up civilians, or drowning them in a cave pond...c'mon...
Killing innocent civilians, often en masse, is pretty routine for your average tin-pot dictator anywhere in the world. Yeah, it's brutal, but it's also pretty realistic.

Bad assumption. Ubisoft and Crytek split, which is why Crysis is an EA game and Far Cry 2 wasn't Crytek and had nothing to do with Far Cry.

This uses the Far Cry 2 engine, which was based on the Far Cry engine but pretty heavily changed.

I was thinking the same thing about the shadows in the greenhouse. Glad I'm not the only one being nit-picky! I assume this is on the CryEngine3? In the two years since Crysis2, you'd think they could've worked the engine a little? Don't get me wrong, it looks good, but it just doesn't go over to...great. Almost, you can see the potential, but it's just a little short, IMO. Plus, my nit-pick list...

1. First off, the good: Those cutscenes in the first trailer were fuckin' awesome! Very realistic, very amazing! I like that they're getting away from the 'plastic face' look, finally...not that has any bearing on the gameplay or the current trailer, I'm just sayin'...

B) Along with the '1 guy against 1000' theme, it's ok if it's done right. If I can be like John McClane then who the fuck cares, right? But two things about it bother me, the fact that every bad guy, except for the main guy, look the same! AND, when you stab someone, why isn't there any wounds on the body itself? Surely we have advanced to the point where we can have location-specific damage decals on the body that show as soon as the wound is made. I just can't get into it if I stab some punk and all I see is this knife-lookin' polygon go into another polygon, with a blood sprite for effect and then pull it out, with no resulting damage. WTF? Guns can cause bullet wounds, but the knives don't? Need to work on that...

3. I'll probably get lambasted for saying this, but it's pretty fuckin' violent. Does it have to be sick and demented to get across that the head bad guy is crazy? Yeah, yeah, I know, Who cares? But damn, it's like every FPS has to up the last one on the violence meter. I can see it if it relates to the story itself, but watching bad guys murder innocent, tied-up civilians, or drowning them in a cave pond...c'mon...

Four - We need higher res textures please! Make my hardcore gaming beast beg! Make it earn it's worth! I wanna see it on it's knees! To hell with the consoles! I want photo-realistic!

I'll probably come up with some more, but what I see, apart from what I've said here, is lookin' really good. I just hope they don't screw it up!

I'm really looking forward to FC3 and it looks like it will be more narrative driven and focused. That said, I really don't think the graphics shown were particularly good and they look like they were taken from the console version. Surely it would make a lot more sense to run it with maximum AA/AF at 2560x1600 and then scale it down? I mean, look at the shadows and light spots on the table early on - incredibly low resolution. Same with the waterfall. And a lot of the textures look washed out.

Far Cry 2 was a great on PC - performance and visuals - and I really hope that Far Cry 3 continues in that direction. It would be nice to see DX11 make the cut.

I'm boycotting Ubisoft but after watching that video, I might have to reconsider. It looks pretty great.

Well, I have absolutely no issue with 1 man taking on 3000 guys on an island. ESPECIALLY when there are no f*****g mutants! So that's a huge positive. It's not like we're talking realism here.
The fight scenes look great, shooting animations are very good, lots of diversity in that.
The only problems I see with the current state are:
- the skin looks horrible still. Everyone looks like a mutating gnome having lived all his life in a cave
- facial animations are really bad
- water is weird

If (and I do mean if) they keep their focus on people shooting, I'll pick it up.

The dock at 39 seconds into the trailer looks terrible compared to the rest of the scenes, which look good. I thought I was looking at a Far Cry 1 dock again. Add 3 months onto the release date btw.

Interesting parts, utterly ruined by the typical "1 man, takes on 500,000 people on an island....."

Christ, aren't we past this shit yet?

If he's pulling that slab of meat from a dead animal, could that mean survival elements? Or maybe a fancy fetch quest...

I'm not ashamed to say that I actually really want that monkey DLC.

Game looks great. A ton of "take me right out of the action" scenes though, but what gameplay there is does appear to be fun.
Your call Ubi, gunna fuck it up with some of your favorite DRM?
