Far Cry 3

7 posts in this topic

Looking at getting a new game after Christmas and Far Cry 3 has me intrigued. I haven't played the previous 2, so I don't know much about them, but reviews seem great. Anybody out there recommend it, how much gameplay is there, etc.? Thanks in advance.

My buddy brought in the PC version to work yesterday (and his 360 controller) and we messed around on it. I didn't know much about it, but after messing with it all day it's pretty cool. It's open world, lots of side quests, and even gathering (like Red Dead lol). Most people have loved it so I don't think you'd make a bad choice, and I don't see it being a quick play unless you skip everything (like all open world games). I never played the first 2 either but from what I can see, it's a whole different story line.

Yeah I've heard the comparisons to Red Dead which I liked, so I'm hoping this is more of the same in some ways. Thanks.

It is the best story I have every played, everything works well together. It took me 26 hours to complete without messing around.

Good news. Are the side missions enjoyable or pointless?

Not as good as Red Dead, but it's still a pretty good game. It's basically an open world FPS with some RPG elements (crafting, character development with perks).

The side missions are pretty repetitive. They are fun the first few times, but can get old...depending on the player of course.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
