    Good news... maybe. I hope they release a late patch for Far Cry 2 like they did with the original Far Cry (was called Project FiXit). Far Cry 2 could be a great game. At the moment it's good with potential.

    Thanks for the info Reoh!

    Far Cry 3 Confirmed!!

    Beyond the limits of civilization lies an island, a lawless place ruled by piracy and human misery, where your only escape is through drugs or the muzzle of a gun. This is where you find yourself, trapped in a place that’s forgotten right from wrong, a place where you must live by the principles of violence to survive. Discover the island’s bloody secrets and take the fight to the enemy; improvise and use your environment to survive; and outwit its roster of ruthless, desperate characters. Beware the beauty and mystery of this unexplored paradise. You’ll need more than luck to survive.

    Definitely! I'd be happy to even pay money for that in an expansion pack or DLC form!

    I was a major fan of the first one. Second one was okay, looking forward to see what the 3rd comes out like.

    Sure looked pretty!

    Never played the first, started in on the second until borderlands came out and never got back into it. I liked how sandboxy it felt. lots of big open areas and multiple ways of approaching conflict areas.

    I just realised this game is published by Ubisoft so I think this is a fair question.

    Will the DRM Suck?*

    *as in, requires a constant internet connection with no offline play.

    I guess we'll only know for sure closer to (or perhaps post) release. The official site does say that it's "UPlay-enabled", so that likely means using Ubisoft's DRM - though they've been toning it (Ubisoft DRM) down since it was first released.

    Yeah I heard that, didn't their last game or two not require it?

    I almost picked up one of their games on a steam sale recently, until I realised it still had it though.

    From memory the only recent Ubi title that I think doesn't require their DRM is RUSE. I've got three UPlay-enabled games (Assassin's Creed 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Splinter Cell Conviction) and only ever had trouble with AC2 back when the Ubi DRM was first launched; after they sorted out the initial issues it's been fine - though to be fair, I'm almost always gaming on-line by choice anyway (connected to Steam).

    If the Ubi DRM implemented in Far Cry 3 is pretty much what I've come to expect from the above three titles, then that'll be the least of my concerns regarding FC3.

    Honestly so do I (about playing online most of the time). I just don't agree that you should not be able to play it if say the internet goes down or whatever. You paid for the game it's not a subscription service to their online servers.

    Wouldn't mind seeing what it's going to look like on PC. Cause I was thinking that the graphics really haven't changed since he FC2 until I saw that it was an X-Box demo.

    Wow - so many awfuls...

    Looks to be cloning the worst of the recent COD series, but with really average graphics and audio too...
