Ask GameSpot: Will Far Cry 3 Fix All The Problems of Far Cry 2?
You asked us the questions about Far Cry 3, and we answered them... sort of.
by Tyler Winegarner on
Can we get some real people for interviewing?For the first eighteen seconds, I thought I was watching some retarded commercial.
Most of those questions were dumb... and before answering questions they should have known more about the game. (the guy said he only played like 4 hours??)
Sure hope you can turn off some of the HUD-elements, like the freakin' skulls above the "bad guys".What's that about? "Look here, this is the enemy."?? Way to continue the trend of simplifying games more and more...
Just made a compilation of Far Cry 3 using the song beast of america. Its epic. I would greatly appreciate if you checked it out! Let me know what you think. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4diojUXKTO4
I`m considering buying the Insane edition of FC3...but one thing is bothering me a lot:will there be dedicated servers?As i can`t find that info anywhere,None of the previews is saying a word bout that.I`m starting to think that Ubi is hiding that fact.Cause if not,it`s gonna kill that game :(
And that would be a damn shame,as game looks really,really sweet.
So damn strange that no one asked that question which is basicly most important one,at least for me.
Anyone knows the answer?
I do hope not too explorable like second farcry, i liked original one best where was linear but same time large and explorable. I dont normally like shooters with sidequest but farcry 3 i give a shot.
theses fken 30 sec windows comercials are getting annoying. same commercial over and over and over and over so plz ether get more comercials or just stop reusing the same damn one.
is the guy on the left answering questions or practicing improv? lol. Answered a lot of questions I had wondered about the game, I'd just like to see some more details on the weapon system.. will there be mortars? if so, will they be easier to use? what other "fun guns" will the game feature? How is currency obtained?
"Ask GameSpot: Will Far Cry 3 Fix All The Problems of Far Cry 2?" last time I checked there wasn't any problem's with Far Cry 2.
Hunting animals? It's the big thing now. Pops up in AC:USA. Cheers to Red Dead for that option (but perhaps there are other games that pioneered this?). I'm very much looking forward to FC3.
I hope there will be civilians in this game. FC2's story was ruined for me by fighting for civilians that you never saw until the final cutscene. It would be much better if you could opperate in a populated landscape. Would make it interesting and lend some weight to immersion. Then again there will probably be a thousand "no russian" themed videos released on the internet to prove that we gamers are a genocidal bunch.
I think most of us can agree that FC1 was very enjoyable,and we all had high hopes for FC2,which of course was a disaster,but FC3 looks ok,and I'll prolly buy it,and of course Crysis3. Games need to be pretty,it encourages immersion and exploration-loose yourself in there...I love it. (I've been swimming in raw sewerage...I love it!) quote from the greatest actor ever, Leslie Neilson...I said I ,love it.!.....
If the two juvenile morons appearing in the video are part of the Far Cry team then it is no wonder Far Cry 2 was so pathetic - they match. Far Cry 3 is just as likely to be as pathetic as its predecessors and I will definitely not be purchasing a copy.
Nikosnik123 was right on with his comment.
far cry 2 was absolutely awful, the respawning checkpoints alone is enough to give it a 3 out of 10. Definitely wait for the reviews on this one guys. I was completely baffled by the good scores the second received. Then again, the first one was one of the best FPS's I ever played so there is still a lot of hope for this one.
This game is now so far from the old Far Cry 1 game which used rock until the hackers have taken over the game. I hope they can stop th server crashers and hackers or FC 3 will fail too lik FC 2 failed. They need to hide the server info so the hackers cannot crash the servers easily. They need to keep up the Anti-cheat programs to keep the game fair and fun. Gorgot, Illyrian, Parcheezian, war, Jean Jean, plus more are all hackers. There are lots of hacking clans now in FC 1 now. Bottom line is Keep the game fair and it will last as long as FC1!!!
I am more concern about the present game. The past is over and this game is different than the first two....I will enjoy this game as I did the last two.
I'm still going to wait for the reviews before purchasing... Although the game looks good, the hud and all the icons seem too exagerated for a guy is in a jungle(I mean... It would be ok if this was a deus ex or crysis game.)
Also the combat doesn't feel satisfying to me, seeing enemies through walls is a turndown...
Last note: The end of the respawning outposts is a plus but no outposts at all would be what we all wanted...(a game like Farcry1,that's what everyone wanted).
All the problems of Far Cry 2 seem to have been fixed. No more respawning check points, no malaria, and the ability to warp throughout the map, which means less driving.
This game just keeps looking better and better.
I really do need to know more about Far Cry's co-op content. specifically, it's length, and forward (DLC) support. I am however, already sold on purchasing this game pretty much first day. But would be delighted to learn that it's co-op (unlikely) is weightily fleshed-out
Nice vid guys, clarified a lot of doubts I had since the trailer was released. I still loved Far Cry 2 in spite of all the shortcomings and this looks satisfying enough. Thanks!
Maxwell Mcgee .. it's just annoying to watch you ,throw your acting through the window and be a man ,god... you look so sad but always trying and failing to be entertaining .
I feel like I've already played this game with all the trailers they've released. It keeps pushing me closer and closer to not buying. I feel like when I get it there'll be no surprises. I've basically seen everything to see.
@Bakh77 its been asked and answered on the home page
no dedicated servers
@Clynol i guess it depends on your definition of the word "problem".
it wasnt all that bad... nut i never finished it. repetitive... nad after i had to drive for 10 minutes from place to place, i gave up.
@1mmortlality I'm playing it now and can definitely tell you it's a populated world... at least from what i've played so far.
@mintis911 I guess you feel better now that you tried to run someone down? honestly, tell that to his face, coward!
I also had this problem. My solution is: only watch a few trailers, if after that you like the game -> wait for it to come out and buy it. I did this with AC3 and Halo 4, only watched a few trailers and then waited. This way you will not get spoilers on the story.
@WheelerJared this is not a movie, it's a video game and guess what it's an INTERACTIVE thing, you need to play it not just wach it...just saying.
Yes, They have some new stuff in FC3 that is not in FC1. FC3 is more like BF3 now. You can drop bombs on people, stun people. and multi players for only 4. The best thing about FC1 was anyone could pick it up and play and have lots of fun. Not many buttons to push. FC3 is not close to FC1. So many changes from now. FC1 has been around for a long time and people still love it. FC2 was a big disapointment and it too was much different from FC1. So I really think the FC1 players will stick around since it is so easy to play. But like I said, the hackers have taken over just about every game now especially FC1. We need to figure out how to ip ban them so they will be stopped and hide the ip address so it cannot be crashed. If they do not fix these problems then FC3 will be like FC2 and not last very long or have many players. They need to develop a Anti-Cheat system!!!! Very Important!!!!!
@petez34 buy me a ticket from Europe to USA and I tell him I promise .
