Hated it... it's the only FC game since 3 I haven't completed. I love the FC series for the insane guns and unique things like the gyro-copter. So no, the caveman one didn't resonate with me at all.

I don’t think I tried New Dawn. Not sure why. Only Borderlands 3 I can keep attention on for now. Better than FC5 huh? I never played any other but 5, but did finish and like a lot. Does ND just have better story? I’m sure gameplay exact...

No, story is the weakest aspect by far. But it is a direct sequel to FC5, so itís still worth checking out.

I don't think the story is weak at all in 5 - they're three psychopaths and it's very entertaining with what they say and how they act. I though the ending fit perfectly as well.

New Dawn's story is sloppy but still fun.

It's a zombie-ish game they showed off a teaser trailer for at E3 2019 and haven't shown/said much of anything else about since. Kinda crazy to think of a pandemic delaying Quarantine.

re: Far Cry 6 (10/17/21)

So this is a prequel game. After the ending of 5 and the subsequent New Dawn it felt like they had pushed themselves into a corner. I alwayd wanted a return to islands like the first game. Hell, a remake of the first game wpuld be awesome. I have loved every game in the series, except Primal which i havnt played.

re: Far Cry 6 (10/17/21)

the only reason this is delayed is because Giancarlo Esposito is in every damn show on tv and needs to fit finishing his voice work in somehow. not that him being in everything is a bad thing you mind you...

I'll probably be finishing Assassin's Creed Valhalla by the time Far Cry 6 comes out. It'll be perfect timing.

I love the look, the fact the protagonist is a Latina woman, of course the legendary Giancarlo Esposito (and they got his look down pat. That smirk was so Gus), everything about it.

^ Latina, not Latino.

Yeah it looks great. And I am thrilled that for the first time we get a protagonist with a face and a voice (and a name after "Deputy" and "Captain" for the last two games).

And some of those look like they might be preorder bonuses. :/ (Although maybe theyíre just skins or you get access to them earlier.)

I’m getting UE, but don’t need any trinkets or even SteelBook. Digital just fine...

Re: Far Cry 6 (10/17/21)

Day 1 and it's my most anticipated game this year... however, the over-the-top weapons remind me of Saints Row. That's not a bad thing entirely but there is something charming about taking out a post with a sniper rifle and an SMG... and not a Macarena playing CD launcher.

I thought I saw you can play as a male or a female--is that right or no?

FC is always a day one purchase for me, even though I'll be seeing it for half price in what feels like no time. October is fine with me; much better than jumping the gun (see, e.g., Cyberpunk).
