The E3 demo looked entirely plausible to me. It was basically just FC3, only with elephants. I was relatively apathetic towards the game when it was announced but now I'm interested.

Anyone else remember the Farcry 3 E3 trailer that was nothing like it was in the game?

No deal Ubisoft.
Isn't it always like that? Marketing always make things look good! Don't always believe them!

Yup, action was too fluid to be a game.
However, the game was hands down my favorite action game of that year, so give me more.

$130, Thats $150 here in NZ, plus the extra $60 or so they always tack on as punishment for being in the wrong hemisphere.
I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up costing over $200, but that wont be the first time.

I think I'll wait for the steam sale and get it for $30.

Since the coop doesn't do the story missions, that's kind of a wasted effort, shame.

Are you serious? What a god damned waste - I was looking forward to setting up with my friend at a LAN party and blowing through the whole game with him, but it sounds like that won't be possible. What the hell's the point then?

Is it me or does that trailer's music sound like No One Lives Forever (NOLF)'s theme song?

Only half the PCs on Steam have more than 4GB of RAM, so you'll be waiting a while. UE4 will take advantage of that much RAM, but devs won't be targeting over 4GB for a long, long, long time.

Actually, this year's sleeper Ubisoft product, M&MX, that shipped in mid-January, required 4GBs and recommended 6GBs of ram. I would imagine that "less than half" of the PCs using Steam is quite a sizable number. I think games like M&MX, requiring between 4-8GBs of ram will be coming faster than it might've happened had not both new consoles shipped with 8GBs of ram onboard. Developers are already headed in that direction--which is the *one* good thing consoles have brought to the table recently. The consoles are at a disadvantage, of course, because that 8GBs must be shared with the GPU, whereas PCs have their own separate pools of videoram. For instance, I've got 8GBs system ram & 2GB's video ram, for a total of 10GBs, whereas the consoles must share their 8GB pools of ram between the cpu and the gpu, creating bus contention as just one not-so-hot side-effect. But basically, before we realize it, at least 4GB-6GBs of system ram will be the baseline for a number of upcoming PC titles, imo. Major increases in videoram, required by much higher resolutions, is coming, too, although that might not start happening until 4k resolutions become commonplace--in another year or two. The darn monitors are hardly shipping yet but they've already come way, way down in price...!


As to who might ever pay Ubisoft $129 *in advance* for a game that hasn't yet shipped--I cannot imagine one person ever doing that...;) It reminds me of the old adage: "A sucker is born every minute"...

Oh no no no, next gen is a very meaningful phrase my friend.
It means many or all of the things below:

-Day 1 DLC
-Season Pass
-$60 base game
-preorder for "limited edition" (while supplies last)
-low graphical fidelity for the PC port so the "next gen" consoles can run the game at 30fps
-optional mouse and keyboard support
-FOV=55
-quick time (button mashing) action sequences
-press A to start
-always online

I am sure there are plenty more "next-gen" game features in AAA titles these days, but you get the idea.
See Watch Doge from Ubisoft for a recent example of a "next gen" title

A lot of that sounds last gen to.

New gen to me means we'll be using 4 gigs + of memory on our PC. Now if we can tell the difference or not, a whole 'nother question.

The consoles don't even ship with current PC hardware, how the hell is any of it "next gen" anything?

Yea looking forwards to seeing how much of a sale this is right after launch. What i'm really wondering is what the people from these mag/websites are looking at? From watching the 1080p videos from E3 that they watched, the game looks the same as every other FPS current gen. It's def not next gen, and def not "an entirely new environment". Honestly looked like FPS tomb raider in the hills.

Looking forward to the $9.99 or under sale for Far Cry 4. 129.99? Rofl.

Since the coop doesn't do the story missions, that's kind of a wasted effort, shame.
