Far Cry 5’s Lost On Mars Is Another Disappointing Expansion

Is there life on Mars? On the surface Far Cry 5’s second DLC seems to answer in the affirmative. The red rock is bursting with armies of alien insects. Some are small. Some are big. Some fly around like Pterodactyls and harass you by spraying firey chemicals at you. As these encounters stack up, however, […]

Confession: I Always Unlock Ubisoft Club Rewards First

When I start a new Ubisoft game for the first time, I don’t immediately play it. No, I find the Ubisoft Club option in the game’s menu, load it up and start unlocking rewards. The rewards are rarely good and they sometimes imbalance my game, but I can’t help myself.Read more… Continue Reading at https://kotaku.com

Far Cry 5 Gets Photo Mode In Latest Update But Not Much Else

A little over three months since release, Far Cry 5 finally has a photo mode. I had issues with the game, but its sprawling, coniferous forests and beautiful Montana sunsets were not among them. A photo mode feels like a no brainer. Unfortunately, the rest of this update serves more as a reminder of everything […]

Getting Bored And Walking Away Is How Most Games End For Me Now

Last week, I realized I have a problem. I’d just finished browsing the Nintendo Switch’s entire eShop for a second time in search of a new game. That’s a weird thing to do, especially considering that I still haven’t finished Breath of the Wild. I should finish it, but I can’t bring myself to do […]

The handful of silo doors peppered throughout the level had gone missing, leaving empty holes in their place. His map couldn’t function…Read […]

Far Cry 3 Classic Edition Is A Good Port With One Annoying Problem

Far Cry 3 Classic Edition came out yesterday for people who bought Far Cry 5’s season pass and it’s turned out to be the tropical island escape I didn’t know I needed. After several weeks with the recent Far Cry 5 I thought I was done hunting wild boars and accidentally blowing myself up, but […]

Ubisoft’s Personal Gaming Assistant Is A Great Idea That’s Not Quite There Yet

Ubisoft’s personal gaming assistant, previously only available in Canada, is now out worldwide. Its name is Sam, a nod to Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell fame, although Michael Ironside doesn’t do the voice (sorry, Stephen). Embedded in the Ubisoft Club app, Sam sounds like any other AI that might reside on your phone,…Read more… Continue […]

Someone went ahead and recreated the island from the TV show Lost using Far Cry 5's map editor.

Someone went ahead and recreated the island from the TV show Lost using Far Cry 5's map editor. It’s not completely to scale, but user PSFREAK33 did their best to add every memorable location from the show, from the DHARMA Initiative stations to Sun’s garden. The map’s currently only available on PS4.Read more… Continue Reading […]

Far Cry 5’s Faith Seed Embodies An Evangelical Double Standard

I hated fighting Faith Seed, the highest-ranking woman in Far Cry 5’s fictional cult. She was confusing, annoying, and—like all the game’s enemies—wanted to kill me. I was supposed to hate her, but I didn’t relish winning our final battle. Faith embodies the ugliness of the game’s cult, The Project at Eden’s Gate,…Read more… Continue […]
