It makes me chuckle everytime I see an SE. I really don't think I could afford to collect the vast amount that seem to be getting released these days. Just give me the game and I'm happyMay 23, 2012 at 6:07 pm #71829
I've had to pick and choose myself lately. Last year the amount released from September to November was just crazy. And when these kind of CEs started popping up first they were usually around the €70 mark, now they seem to be averaging over €100 a pop.May 23, 2012 at 7:52 pm #71830
I suppose almost 2 hours extra gameplay is a bit of a bonus although I imagine that'll be available shortly after anyway.
Not sure what to make of the game itself. Didn't like the last one, but the trailer for this looks interesting.May 23, 2012 at 11:46 pm #71835
Think I may just set up a new thread called “SE's to make 1773's bank manager cry”May 24, 2012 at 12:01 am #71836
It's okay, I hate Street Fighter games so that's one edition that can pass me by.
I liked FC2. It wasn't perfect and the online was such a long slog, it was barely worth starting.September 26, 2012 at 8:44 pm #72372
Hmmm might have to add this to the “buy” pileDecember 8, 2012 at 7:26 am #72566Seibei4211Member
So this is the best ***NO PROFANE LANGUAGE PLEASE*** game I've played all year. I have no idea why nobody else is playing it. Good graphics/animations, good characters, good story, gameplay that you actually get to play instead of doing QTEs, lots of hours of gameplay, hunting that actually makes the animals somewhat of a threat (unlike AC3), RPG elements with really good gunplay elements as well, decent stealth, you get a ***NO PROFANE LANGUAGE PLEASE*** wingsuit on the second island and can fly whenever you want, and there's dozens of other things that make this game the best thing ever.December 8, 2012 at 7:32 am #72567gr8jrfanMember
I'm just waiting for the holidays on this one. I assume a lot of people are, too. I could really go for some wingsuits right about now…December 8, 2012 at 10:08 pm #72570
The story has a grip on me and I'm really interested in this title. Will pick this up while I wait for InfiniteJanuary 1, 2013 at 12:40 am #72629
Currently have this game residing in a small backlog. Have only redeemed the online pass but haven't actually popped it in yet. Going to immediately do co-op first so I can enjoy the single player. Hopefully I don't get bored quicklyJanuary 1, 2013 at 8:27 pm #72637
It's a pretty sweet game. Miles better than the last one. I just have that shitty poker trophy and the co-op to get the plat. I suck at poker!January 3, 2013 at 8:27 pm #72641Doc-BMember
I just have that shitty poker trophy and the co-op to get the plat. I suck at poker!
If you've not already gotten the poker trophy I found the best way was to just go all in on your first go regardless… Don't even look at your hand, just go all in and hammer the 'skip boring ass animation' button… I hate poker based sh!t in games!! (Red Dead)
After pissing about for 20-30min trying to properly play a game i have no idea about and losing, I found that a good few times it would win and bust 1-2 of the other players, meaning you only have to beat 1-2 with decent funds… And if you lose it only takes like 10sec instead of 10-15min, getting the $1500 playing the $300 matches didn't take too long at all…
The online co-op I though was a pretty standard affair, although the Weegie char. was class Pretty spot on Getting into the level you need can be a pain if you're not hosting but the fact that you can do it offline is surprising in the wake of the 'online pass'…
So I got the Plat. on the 1st , and 100% on the 2nd… I can say I really enjoyed it and for the first time in a while I'm glad I got all the DLC (Insane Ed.) It wasn't perfect, a 'holster weapon' option would have been nice… And it is by no means 'Skyrim with guns', wtf
It took me just under 40hours to 100% everything inc. the DLC compared to my 180hours+ I spent with, the pretty broken but awesome as fook, Skyrim… Think someone got a little to excited when they wrote that… I could go on at length about the difference!! Epic compared to Far Cry 2 but it's really got me thinking about Just Cause 3 more than anything, I would still play JC2 over FC3… And even JC2 wasn't perfect, the trophies were a GRIND and the whole 'Plat. breaking' 'Bus/limo' glitch that, praise Allah, got patched…
I've read people moaning about all the side quests and it seems dumb as sh!t they would complain at in game content Hunting to gain better holsters seemed pretty real (as it can get in a game where over the course of half an hour you turn from a scared tourist into a killing machine), the medi quests were a good laugh at times but never actually hard and the kill quests were pretty cool armed with a sniper and upgraded take-downs… The story was a bit iffy perhaps, but not terrible and there were some really nice story segments/effects and the graphics I though were really nice, guns look good!!
Even getting the relics was relatively fun? Or perhaps I just like collecting sh!t There was even a 'Assassins Creed easter egg DLC mission' if that's what you might call it!? I'm also glad about the ending I chose, because from watching the other on Youtube it seems like I made the right choice
Doing the final Hurk DLC mission after finishing the main quest with the little speech he gives at the end really felt like it wrapped the whole game up nicely for me… Well worth the money IMO…January 6, 2013 at 6:46 pm #72655
Yeah, I kinda noticed that when I was playing poker. If you go all in, you'll always have a good chance of winning easily. Also, how can you say you'd want to play Just Cause 2 over Far Cry 3? Doc, you cray-cray
Anyways, this game is fcuking phenomenal. I haven't had a FPS or an open world game motivating me to do 100% of everything or caring about characters as much as this game. I still haven't finished the game yet, but goddamn. This game has it's shit checked and should be an example of how open world games should be. The sound track is just astonishing and fits the game so well, even making some of the set pieces and plot points more memorable and heart-pounding. The characters are the best I've seen in gaming and have actual emotion with realistic feelings. These aren't paper thin characters with no development at all. You will care for who lives and dies whether or not they're a villian or not. Speaking of development, the character development in this game is breath taking and should be an example of how to take on a story like this. Oh, and the dialogue… Just expertly written and some of the best I've heard!
Take me into your heart. Accept me as your saviour. Nail me to the ***NO PROFANE LANGUAGE PLEASE*** cross and let me be REBORN! – Vaas
This is definitely a game for the books and a pleasant surprise from a year of shit and disappointments left and right. I'm keeping this game for sure and will fit perfectly next to the Uncharted games as something I hold dear. Going to 100% the main game as well as trophies. Hopefully we could see some single player DLC in the future? I'd be more than happy coughing up $15 just to have some more shit to do on top of the incredible, perfectly & expertly written single player campaign. Please Ubi, do some justice here and support this game!!! This has to be the best FPS along with open world game I've played.
