Yearly releases aren't what you think they are. Call of Duty is a yearly release, but each game is now on a three year development cycle.

Except for the PC Version. Which there is no embargo on, but they haven't provided the code for.

All I want is more Far Cry 3 and the reviews seem to indicate that this is that. I'll wait a couple weeks to get the Ubisoft price reduction but I'm excited to read everyone's impressions here.

Damn, I haven't even started FC3 (or Blood Dragon yet), but really want to play this. Hopefully I have enough will power to wait.

Why not just play Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon, then? They're great.

The ONLY thing I didn't like about FC3 was the same-ness of the island/environments. While pretty, it got redundant. This seems to have fixed that.

Yep...mine did yesterday when I started the PS4 and saw all three files loading up...pre-load, update and Season pass. My online friend, kanji, is getting the game but the disc version and I kept giving her the countdown time for the game...

She asked what are we doing Tuesday...Tuesday is when the week resets on Destiny and everyone starts new Nightfalls, Weekly and even Raid...I told her I'll be in Kyrat...

Ugh, Tuesday -- Far Cry 4 unlocks on my PS4, LBP 3 arrives in the mail from Best Buy, I have to pick up GTA V from Best Buy in-store and Dragon Age : Inquisition arrives from GameFly. Fuck if I know what the hell I'll be playing that night!

The obvious answer is Dragon Age, because it's the most overhauled of the 4 titles you mentioned.

I suggest that you go clone yourself at least twice...and start doing plenty of Thumb exercises...and while you're at it go ahead and request a month off medical leave of absence due to...Thumbitosis

Re: Far Cry 4 -- November 18, 2014 - PC, PS3, 360, PS4, Xbox One

I wanted to make sure that I understand this on the co-op part of the game.....

There is the SP "Story" that is totally separate of co-op play correct? Do you have to play thru this first in order to unlock the co-op part or can co-op be played anytime. I've tried to see just when you can play the co-op part of the game...anytime or only when you play the story part?

Never mind...I found my answer.....

Got to play right at 11:00pm last night for about an hour-hour & half.....It really does look good & stunning with some of the details. The AI animations are good and right off the bat you get a sense Pagan is a nut job that would probably fit in some Batman game. I just played a bit of the first part but the scenery makes you want to take time and just look around....it really looks and sounds that good. Got up close to a Bear twice....Score - Bear 1 and Me 1. Obvious that "bait" is as valuable as Grenades or even more so. I'll have to move on the SP Campaign part so to unlock the co-op part.

Yeah, I played the Prologue last night. Well acted villain, boring protagonist. Great scenery. Killing with a bear is fun if not entirely logical. Also kind of wish I could harvest human hearts as bait, but I guess that would make the game too easy as well as being a pretty damn sick & twisted gameplay mechanic.

Looking to playing some more tonight or tomorrow.

I preordered this last night at the last minute (along with Dragon Age too). I would love a chance to play it before I open it though so if any of you want to send me the play for an hour thing, please do.

Would be happy to if I see you online tonight.

Also, I think the Keys to Kyrat thing is totally separate from the online co-op story mode. It's sitting there as an option on the Multiplayer side of the game Menu. It's actually pretty cool -- you see which friends are online and then you're given the option of sending any of then a "Key To Kyrat". No codes or anything to enter.

They should explicitly state "Multiplayer" in that title.

Far Cry is one series that I never really enjoyed multiplayer on, though I am kind of interested in Co-op. This isn't an Assassin's Creed Unity situation where the game itself is actually broken.
