Yep, still waiting for a remastered Far Cry 3. Last gen version played like ass.

Am I reading it right that the co-op part is pretty much unlimited as to what you can do and go? ALl I see is a reference to "drop-in & drop-out". Is there a co-op campaign?

You just aren't as picky. The 360 version had an average framerate of 23.82 fps, the PS3 version had an average framerate of 22.62 fps. It was just painfully obvious to some of us, to the point of distraction.

I played on 360 and never noticed it either, and had a blast the entire time. I guess that's one advantage of having a non-PC-master-race-trained eye.

I thought the 360 version played fine as well.

its a curse..lol

I am not as anal as neogaf when it comes to games. 30 fps is fine to me. I worry more about screen tearing and frame dips. I enjoyed Far Cry 3, but it sort of gave me a headache during long play sessions.

That being said, games like Wolfenstein will spoil you with its 60 fps.

Meet Far Cry 4 protagonist Ajay Ghale: Kyrat native, devoted son, and Pagan Min's guest of honor.


Hopefully less of a horrible douche than the FC3 protagonist.

Was that in the Bar Mitzvah level or in the deflowering level? I don't remember.

He did both at the same time while skydiving in a wingsuit.

I am picking this up, but things I hope for in this game.

1: The ability to skip cut scenes. Far Cry 3 did not allow it. I would have enjoyed 3 more if I could have skipped them.

2: NO FUCKING KNOCKING ME OUT 8 TIMES IN ONE GAME WHEN I OPEN A DOOR OR WALK THROUGH ONE

People who skip cutscenes are monsters.

Looks beautiful, but I'm not thrilled about the return of the 'spiritual' stages. All the weird psychedelic crap was the only thing I really disliked in FC3. Those sections were a chore to get through.

I've never played a Far Cry. I always understood that they ran kind of poorly on last gen consoles.

This one definitely has my attention as something I might not buy at launch but will probably pick up later.

Looks awesome. And was that a honey badger in the video? NICE.

I've only played on PC. But some people here mentioned that FC3 played well in consoles.

Wait, now I remember, FC2 was free on Plus, I played just a little bit, and it ran fine. That was after FC3, so I wasn't that interested in FC2.

I also played Blood Dragon in the Xbox 360 and it played fine. I missed all the eye candy from the PC port, but other than that no issues.

No sure about FC1. But maybe the full game was never ported to consoles.

I have Far Cry Instincts on the Original Xbox. It's a complete nightmare of a port.

They also made a 360 port that includes Instincts and Predator. Those run pretty well.
