Far Cry 5 – Official Announce Trailer | Ubisoft [US]

  1. Isn’t This Different to Other Far Cry Games? No, it isn’t.
  2. “Hope County is the kind of place in which the daylight pastimes of hunting, fishing and drinking morph into night time habits of…..”  What kind of comment is that?
  3. Other headlines like When American militia and religious cults become marketing (Far Cry 1 The game includes dangers of weaponizing genetic engineering and the genocide of local islanders as can be seen by the deformed creatures created by a mad scientist, Far Cry 2 Central African civil war, Far Cry 3 parts taken from Nepalese civil war. Far Cry 4, pirates.. people sold into slavery, etc. – so seems like because this is in our backyard all of a sudden we should be careful)
    • Watching this trailer sort of reminds me of The Walking Dead’s Saviours and Negan. Why haven’t we gotten something from TWD better than TellTale?
    • Plenty of games have done Zombies, but not that many maybe Last of Us put you in that world that felt real to me. The real scary stuff is people vs people.

It ain’t easy being green Phoenix Comicon Gunman Allegedly Wanted To Kill Police And Green Power Ranger Actor – aka How to ruin Comic Con for everyone, forever.

At your service. Friday the 13th server issues

  • Failures to prepare like this make me nervous about bigger demand or popular games like Destiny 2 and not having dedicated servers.

Countdown to E3 – IGN has an app for every device you can think of to watch E3

Mass Effect Andromeda Sex and Romance guide apparently Vladz needs this and if you avoided this game because of the raunchy info prior to launch, you may have missed out on hours of tedious tasks with absolutely NO sexual situations.
