Thread Details

I'm surprised that Farcry 3 didn't have a official thread in here. I'm sure that I'm not the only one playing this game.

I bought Farcry 3 here yesterday for around $30 (Note: This is NOT a retail copy, it is downloaded and activated through Ubisoft Uplay)

For Retail copies:
Amazon [amazon.com]
Bestbuy [bestbuy.com]

I got it from Steam for like $2 and spent a TON of time playing. It has a HUGE map.

We're getting a little offtopic here talking about members' gfs and stuff hahaha.

About the Skyrim with guns comment I have to disagree. I think Farcry 3 a game one in its kind (because of the storyline)

I was reading a little about it on RPS (I skimmed it because TLDR), saw that you have to skin a goat if you want to make a holster, to hold more weapons laugh out loud

I was disappointed by FC2 so 3 wasn't even on my radar. But now I'm curious and will have to check out some of the reviews when I get home.

That depends though. Do any of the people on the island complain about taking a bullet in the knee?

I agree to this. Post!

I think the roaming / exploring concept is similar to Skyrim. Like you have the freedom basically to do the things you want and you don't really feel rushed to do them either and do it in any way you want. Other than that.. they are quite different!

Ahh bullet in the knee, that's not as bad as an arrow right?

Tis true. While I was chasing down a goat trying to stab him to death, I ran too close to the water and a saltwater crocodile grabbed onto my leg. Scared the shit out of me.

Any news of how long the main quest/single player campaign takes?
Been pondering whether or not to get this game or Assassins Creed 3 (fan of both types of games)

Check out this great video, from FPS Russia. He's demonstrating the use of REAL Farcry 3 weapons below. I guess the bow isn't so bad afterall :p

This is very hard to judge IMO. If I were you, I'd read some reviews from both of the games and decide (I also like them both). You can also wait, probably like a half year, when there are crazy discounts on these games.

I started playing single player yesterday. Very large map IMO. Has anyone played multiplayer yet?

Yes, I played deathmatch a few times. Although I have to say that Farcry 3 is one of the less games where I prefer single player, because it's THAT great!
