Does anyone else think Ubisoft took a step in the wrong direction for Far Cry Primal? Being a long time Far Cry fan, I'm staying far away from Primal. It just looks awful to me. Thoughts?
>>
Seems like a far cry from the rest of the series.
>>
Its the middle game like Blood Dragon so they can do the next big advancement. Its why its full of tons of reused animations and mechanics.

They shouldn't do any gimmick setting. Instead, they should do Farcry in snow. Not this half-assed Autum/instanced mountain sections of 4, but just Farcy in a hostile frozen wasteland.

I'd love a proper neolithic game, but not by ubisoft cause they only make garbage. Hell, make it in the same engine (although I think it's proprietary so it won't happen) cause it looks pretty decent but modify melee so it's actually a thing, if they can do Dark Messiah from Source I'm sure some company can work something out.

I didn't play 3, but I really enjoyed 4. that setting...nepal/himalaya was awesome.

will probably skip primal. everything is in some made up ooga booga language and you gotta read subtitles for EVERYTHING. no weapons beyond spears/bows, animals attacking all the time. remember how annoying the eagle in 4 was? or dog packs? yeah that's 24/7 in primal. and no co-op.

As a bow-lover of FC3 and 4, I would totally get this if it wasn't full priced. 30 maybe even 40 would be worth it.
>>323229541
Blood Dragon was more of a reskin of 3 than Primal is of 4. Primal atleast has its own map and the melee while being shit still atleast made some strides. You can block and throw your melee weapon now, and it being a selectable weapon is way better than "press F to melee"

valley of the yetis is actually pretty good - it's like a 10 hour DLC taking place in the coolest setting of the game: snowy himalaya.

the other DLC is a pretty weird...your mission is to escape from a prison high up in the mountains and then survive for as long as possible. if you die, you have to start over (you keep skills you have upgraded).

that being said, I would always get 2 games instead of 1 game+DLC. far cry 4 the base game is like 50 hours+ anyway.
>>
>>323230786
To be fair, Far Cry has almost nothing common with the current games in the franchise

Ubisoft it's just trying to jump into all modern trends.
They tried to jump in the eSports trend with Siege, now they are trying to jump into survival games.
Hell, look at the new Ghost Recon which looks like a MGSV clone.
>>
>>323230492
FC4 is not a good game. The DLC isn't good either.

Wolfenstein is 10x better. You could also get Dishonored for around the same price as Wolfenstein.
>>
>>323227597
>new IP
That's irrelevant because it'll be an open world game with a map full of collectables and a Arkham Knight/AC combat.
>>
>>323231107
Thanks for the detailed response, man.

I expected a load of edgelords to tell me to stop being poor.
10 hour DLC sounds like a nice deal, but as you say 2 games instead of 1 game+DLC is usually more attractive.

I think I'll take the plunge and just get the base game and maybe Wolfenstein.

>>323231436
I loved Far Cry 3. Is it not more of the same? Did you dislike 3 as well?

I definitely think I'm going to pick up Wolfenstein. I also was interested in Dishonored, but I remember the reception being lukewarm at its release, hence I didn't pick it up, despite loving how it looked.
>>
>>323230492

>>323231642
>I loved Far Cry 3. Is it not more of the same? Did you dislike 3 as well?

It's like a repeat of 3, except worse. Your "allies" are massive shitstains that lie and just use you.
The only likeable character is the "bad guy" and the best ending is the one you get after you just booted up the game.

While Dishonored isn't perfect it is still a good game that offers a bit different kind of experience from the norm, which is refreshing. There is a lot of choice and difference in playstyle for that game. The DLC for Dishonored (which is included in the PS4 and X1 versions of the game) is better than the main game and shows what they learned after making the main game.

You will get by far more enjoyment out of Wolfenstein+Dishonored than FC4 GOTY.
>>
>>323231642
Be warned, Dishonored is relatively short and there is really no replay value, if that matters to you.
>>
I must say i was impressed by this setting but once i saw the gameplay and how stiff melee combat system looks i think i will pass on this game.

I mean this is 2016 and the only game that made you feel how you swing was dark messiah. Oh and maybe killing floor 2, i freaking love the melee system in this game.
FC primal melee looks like halflife2, where crowbar was just a pistol with 1 range.
Also.

>No dinosaurs
>>
>>323226559
Yes. I hate FPS melee, and a game centered around it with some spear throwing and bow and arrow just seems like a very easy decision: NO.

good ideas with the emphasis on environmental destruction but I want an FPS.

>>323232387
>Your "allies" are massive shitstains that lie and just use you.
Well, thanks for the spoilers, but regardless, this seems like a standard twist for videogames.

Thanks for the detailed response anyway. Unfortunately, I only have a PS3 which I purposefully kept away from me for two years when abroad, to avoid distraction. I'm way too poor to buy a PS4 and don't really see the need to yet, anyway.

I'd be buying the Dishonoured GOTY version on PS3 via the PS Store. Would this include everything you've mentioned?

Decisions... I must say, I enjoyed FC3 so much that if FC4 was it, only slightly lesser, I'd probably still like it. My main enjoyment in FC3 was taking bases.
>>
>>323232394
Thanks. For my buck, it does matter. It's the GOTY version, however, so there's more content -- I just don't know how much more.

I feel idiotic now as I also want to get the Assassin's Creed Naval Pack, even though I hated III.
I just want to zone out doing AC-stuff. I bloody loved ACII and Brotherhood was kinda ok, but Revelations and III were awful.
>>
>>323231642
I was the one detailing the DLCs

I think far cry 4 improved on everything far cry 3 tried to do, especially things like interface and side missions. in your main mission you can pick between 2 paths, leading to different missions and outcomes depending on what you choose. One of the reasons I enjoyed 4 much more than 3 is the setting...I've been on tropical islands in so many games, it feels kinda stale. I've never been in a setting up in himalaya/nepal with all that lore before.

Wolfenstein new order is really good tho so I would most def get that for 10 bucks if you can.

If I were you I would get far cry 4 base game and wolfenstein and then wait until valley of the yetis goes on supersale (it was at like 60% during xmas).
>>
>>323233410
Cheers man. You're a legend for taking the time.

So now I'm thinking FC4 Base game + Wolfenstein.

Also, look here:

You will not give a single fuck about the story in that game and the real truth isn't even revealed to you in the normal campaign, but in the secret ending you can get right at the very beginning for doing nothing but waiting, which is as has been said also the best ending.

>I'd be buying the Dishonoured GOTY version on PS3 via the PS Store. Would this include everything you've mentioned?
