I guess I'm waiting one more week for Far Cry Primal to hit the PC.

This is worth calling out.  You can get 3 games for free to keep if you click to install them.  Jet Set Radio, Golden Axe (the original) and Hell Yeah! with DLC.  Go to any of their pages and click Install to add the package to your account (you don't have to actually install it right now).


There's supposed to be another free pack coming too.


They moved the free pack to route through their web site instead of directly through steam.

Hmm, 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten my code.  Anyone else?

Nothing for me, either.

EDIT:  Just got mine (@3:45 EST).

They've got another signup for Gunstar Heroes, Renegade Ops and Viking: http://www.makewarnotlove.com/results-final.php

Why not start a fresh series. To me it should have its own run at it, instead of the constant comparisons to the other Farcries.

Agreed.  I think maybe Ubisoft is finally starting to realize that running a franchise into the ground isn't as useful in the long run as their yearly release schedule, so maybe in the future they'll just allow a new brand to exist.

Well, consider me a convert and a guinea pig thanks to GMG.  I have to admit that while the game may be just more of the same in a new skin, I've enjoyed all of the FC games so far. 

Yeah, I'm in the exact same boat.  Not sure if it'll be worth it but the deal was good enough to convince me to give it a try since I liked the other Far Cry games and open world games in general.

Tried this out on PC for about 45 minutes this morning and it seems OK, but it may take more time to really grab me. 

Something really feels off about the camera.  It's like a first person camera control but pulled back into third person and it just feels unnatural. 

I'm also not a fan of any of the UI, the cover indicators, how fiddly interacting with things is and just the general sense of the area being both very detailed but very static and useless. 

Anyway, I'll go back later today or this weekend to try some more and hopefully it grabs me then.

If it helps any, when I first fired up the alpha I almost turned the thing off in severe disappointment in the first 20 minutes or so.  By the end of the first couple hours I was hooked though.  Since then I've played dozens of hours of the two betas.  It took some time to see what was beneath the surface.  There is a lot more than is apparent, especially with the tiny slice we have in the beta.

Yeah, I played a bit more today and started to get into it.  To the point where I think I may just stop until the game comes out so I don't get bored by playing the same content twice.  I took advantage of a 30% off coupon at GMG, so I figure I can get enough fun out of that in the long run.

I'm digging the cover indicators actually. It feels intuitive. Move to edge of cover and there is a white arrow showing how you'll move around the corner. X to go to cover. I like being able to mantle over cover as well. 

I think the thing I dislike the most about the cover indicator is that it's the same color as other interaction and loot indicators, so I can't quickly see what it's showing me.  I think it needs to be it's own color or design so it's easy to pick out when there is something I actually care about vs just the cover indicator.

I didn't realize that this was actually the first full movie for director Tim Miller.  Pretty impressive directing debut, I'd say (though he had worked in visual effects and videogame cinematics before).

Wasn't Tim Miller with Blur Studios? If so they make the best video game cinematics IMO.  Glad his first movie is such a great success.  I wonder who they will cast as Cable for the next movie

Yeah he was, and when watching the credits I actually saw that Blur worked on the beginning and ending credits sequences, which made even more sense once I saw he used to work there.

Well, I'm still trying to finish Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen on PC.  60-some hours in and I still have a ways to go.  Too much wandering around and exploring for me. 

I also started Gravity Rush Remastered the other night and that seems neat.  I like just exploring cities so all the gems to collect mixed with their mechanics means I can spend a lot of time just puttering around.

Only got to Dragon's Dogma over the weekend.  Still not finished.

I haven't actually tried it, but I see there is Typer Shark! Deluxe on Steam for $5.  It was apparently made by PopCap several years ago and has Positive reviews.  There is also a demo so you can try it first to see if it hits the spot for both learning and fun.

I never actually played Twilight Princess the first time around so I'm kind of excited for this as well.  It should be a good way to play through it at least.

I preordered the version with the Amiibo on Amazon...I'm not big on Amiibo but figure the extra area in the game is maybe worthwhile.  Plus with the Prime discount it's cheaper than the digital version anyway.

Did anybody bother to look at the Official Design Works book that's included with the PC version?  It's actually a really cool and thorough 313 page art book.  Lots of paintings and renderings and concept art with some commentary alongside it.

The only problem is that it's a giant PDF and viewing those things just chugs regardless of PC specs.   disgust

Wow, I had no idea the art book was this incredible. But yeah, I have a decent system and its painful to to browse through frown

For what it's worth, I normally use Foxit Reader but after doing some research just switched to Sumatra PDF since it is known as the fastest and most stripped down PDF reader.  It is barebones on features, but makes reading this document much faster.  You can still view side-by-side pages by using the menu up top for View->Facing.

For anyone interested in more info behind the development, they just released this GDC 2013 Behind the Scenes video that has some great info and internal videos.

On technical aspect I found especially interesting is that they used the the 360 and PS3 system leaderboards for storing all Pawn data, so that Capcom didn't have to run any servers themselves!
