News Comments > Far Cry 5 Montana Video

4 was pretty awesome, though I didn't like the map as much as I did 3's. But story-wise, 4 was substantially better than 3, but that was because the idiot who wrote 3 tried to pretend that he was just providing a scathing rebuke of videogames, when in reality he just really wrote an absolutely terrible story.

Even so, I enjoy FC's gameplay and this setting looks cool. I don't have a problem with a satirized version of right-wing America there for me to mow down.

I do agree that graphically it does look significantly worse than what they initially showed at E3. This is PS4 though, from the looks of it, so hopefully the PC can boost the graphical quality quite a bit.

“If you keep the device by your body you will exceed the safety limits provided by the FCC... However, the agency requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure all phones comply with “objective limits for safe exposure.”"

Don't worry, fellas, Ajit Pai is ON IT! Those rules will soon be history, because it's 'too onerous' for a 50 billion dollar corporation to have to post or comply with a few minor regulations.

It only proves just how stupid your average Canadian is because unlike the US there are actually viable choices here besides the Libs and Cons. They're simply too dumb to choose them.

That's pretty damn sad, actually... :\

Sure they could. I mean, everybody COULD cut these vital cables.

Why would they? They'd hurt themselves as much as everyone else, and their economical situation is far more precarious than (most) everyone else.

Wahaha did he really use crowdfunding money to buy his wife tits? That's funny. I recall seeing her in a video a while back and she didn't have much going on in that department.

Even if it may not be true, I like to think it is because that would sum this project up so nicely....
Nah, if she paid $25000 for CG renderings of her new boobs with a promise from the surgeon that he'd have them molded and ready for insertion in 2025.

Don't give CR any ideas. If he starts selling pictures of tits that will show up in game, all the pathetic imbecile nerds who keep buying pictures of starships will give him so much money it'll ruin the entire world's economic system.

allow the free market (which is proven since 1300) to create innovation and wealth for the entire population.

Except, by and large, it has pretty much stopped doing that since the 80s. You know, wages having stagnated, the poor getting poorer, the middle class systematically being wiped out and the rich just getting astronomically richer. Fortunately they are now getting another huge tax break, because they had it really rough.

I mean, sure, some people make huge breakthroughs, and good for them. But this belief that trickle down economics makes everyone's life better is a FUCKING LIE, and FUCK the current GOP for shoving it up everyone's ass again.

Some thing will rise and kill price gauging by offering a cheaper alternative.

Except, of course, that nothing CAN rise to offer a cheaper alternative, because our wonderful ISPs lobbied against Last-Mile-Unbundling which would have actually made it possible for cheaper ISPs to come along, and it's absurdly cost-prohibitive to build out completely new infrastructure.

Couple that with the fact that the ISPs refuse to compete against one another, and are in fact working to just become one giant corporation that controls everything, AND that many states have FUCKING LAWS in place to prohibit towns and municipalities from providing internet service themselves, all because our whore senators and congressmen allows themselves to be bribed for a fucking lollypop and an AT&T coffee mug, and I think you may begin to see that the "Free market" in the US internet sphere is an illusion and will NOT, in fact, come to anyone's rescue, no matter how much that fucking chunk of asscancer, Ajit Pai, says it will.

I guess I semi-agree with it LOL

I hope you'll still find it so funny when your ISP of No-Choice slows your access to something you find interesting to a fucking crawl, unless you buy another "website pass" for xx amount of dollars per month.

Battle Royale is a Japanese movie.

It's the movie that "Hunger Games" was based on.

PUBG ripped the same movie.

Take a look :

In games, buddy. In games. He made the first Battle Royale mod.

Otherwise we can keep drawing everything back until we end up at the Odyssey every single time.

I'm sorry, the "Make-AT&T-Rich-Net". Feel free to replace AT&T with your own shitty ISP who now have NOTHING to stop them from absolutely fucking raping you over and over and over again.

If only we didn't have such utter imbeciles in this...

( Comment redacted. If you would like to read this entire comment, please call 1-800-MO-MONEYS and upgrade to the See Entire Comments Package for a mere $14,99 a month.(*) )

(*) Does not include fees such as... oh wait, we forgot, we don't have to tell you all these hidden bullshit fees anymore, because it was TOO ONEROUS FOR US TO DO SO. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Even we couldn't believe that shit. Ajit Pai cracks us the fuck up.

In any case, your bill will really increase by about 47 dollars a month. For now. This promotion will end at our whim, at which point you will pay 96 dollars a month. Or more. You know, whatever.

But let's be honest, what are you going to do about it? Switch to a different provider? YOU CAN'T! THERE ARE NO DIFFERENT PROVIDERS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Eat shit and die (just know we won't cancel your account, and we'll bill your destitute family double),
Your ISP.

The PUBG irony is next level.

Another DayZ (not a pubg dev property) gameplay clone skinned with a Battle Royale (not a pubg property) theme, complaining about copy cats.

L. O. L.

-scheherazade

I take it you're not aware the guy actually MADE the Battle Royale theme. So he has some legitimacy here. Even so, he still just comes off as a whiner.

PubG creator says "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH"

You sold 25 million copies. Shut the fuck up.

"Look at movies, Armageddon came out then 20 other comet disaster films came soon after," Brendan Greene explains.

Errr, Deep Impact came out, followed by Armageddon a few months later. They were both in production at the same time, two teams having come up with the same idea after a news cycle in which we all worried about some giant asteroid killing us all.

That was pretty much the end of it. But nice example there, buddy.

I still don't get the numbnuts that continue to recommend a Nvidia 1070 graphics card when for the the exact same price you can get a 1080? Just a brain dead decision.

Where exactly are you seeing these prices? On Amazon and Newegg, the 1070 is ~ 410 to 450 on average, and the 1080 is over 500.

A better question is, why not get a 1070ti, which is ~ 30 bucks more expensive than a 1070, 70 bucks cheaper than a 1080, and can easily be clocked to match a 1080's performance.

Driving through tight passages requires millimeter-precision maneuvering!

The player has to obey the escort vehicles' advice and carefully watch for every inch of the road to deliver the cargo in pristine condition.

Hmmm... This doesn't sound like something my transport company, @128kph, would be good at.

You know...I don't know why iphone users would be all up in arms about this, I would be perfectly fine with my phone slowing things down a little so that when batteries get old..I don't start losing screen time. Obviously I would love an indicator of some sort letting me know my batteries efficiency level, but I would rather things be a little slower rather then have to charge my battery in the middle of the day. (Android user here).

Which is fair, but if it slows it down to the point that the whole phone becomes sluggish, which would you rather have? Other people would rather their phone just keeps working normally. Apple should just offer it as a choice, or at least notify users that this is happening.

Of course, I've sat in the Apple store plenty of times, listening to their upselling guys tech support guys explain to users that their phone is slowing down because it's fucked, but for the measly price of $800 they can upgrade to the shiniest, newest phone! And then Apple will give them 14 bucks for their old phone, so it's really only just $786!

How many people bought a new phone because they thought their phone was dying, when instead it was Apple deliberately fucking with its speed?

Well... there are literally thousands of federal positions, it would be worse if we tried to elect them all. That said, here's to hoping karma does exist and Pai gets a just return...

We don't have to elect all federal officials. Just the commissioners. There's 5 people on the FCC. I'm sure we can handle electing them. Same for the other commissions.

And then they have to report to Congress/Senate.
