Playing far cry 5, heard pretty bad things but I'm enjoying it

9

u/cmac007 Sep 29 '21

Honestly it's all about expectations... Recent Far Cry games get a ton of hate for being lazy re-skins. While this is a fair assessment no one should be surprised at this point that the newer games are just that. Personally, I love Far Cry and the new ones give me an excuse to play with a new story and setting. I thought 5 was great, I especially loved the Montana based wilderness.

u/remag117 Sep 29 '21

I just wanna throw out that if a series is just reskins of a great experience you're going to enjoy the reskin if you didn't play the older titles. I haven't played FC since 3 but know if I go back it'll be a great (if familiar) experience

2

u/cmac007 Sep 29 '21

Agreed, FC 3 was my first and I enjoyed 4 & 5.

2

u/Ex-SyStema Sep 30 '21

To be fair I thought far cry 5 was the first far cry with a buddy/squad system that actually worked for a change. The ai was surprisingly good tbh. Your npcs can drive, fly planes. Etc. I don't remember previous far cry games doing that.

To me, part 5 is the part that once again pushed far cry into the next stage. Massive open world combined with this kind of crazy partner system with like story characters as your teammembers. Each with their own unique abilities. Wasn't that a first for the series too? I liked far cry 5 for sure

1

u/GameLife4eel Sep 29 '21

This is also my first far cry game lol so that might have something to do with why I love it

u/feebledragon Sep 29 '21

i loved far cry 5 but hated the ending

2

u/GameLife4eel Sep 29 '21

Oh no lol now I'm worried about the ending

1

u/feebledragon Sep 29 '21

lol maybe you’ll like it

2

u/Ex-SyStema Sep 30 '21

Yeah I really like that game a lot. People seem to forget how huge that game is . All sorts of vehicles.

The only thing that I hope they learned their lesson with is the forced story missions. I'm sure that's probably the most of thr bad stuff you heard about it, right? Nobody should be forcing you to do story missions in an open world game like that.

But other then that, i very much enjoyed far cry 5. I actually really like whT they did with it. Playing that game Is like playing your own action movie. Just the crazy shenanigans you can pull off just with you and your 2 squad mates are just insane. I won't get too much into it but there's stuff you can do that maybe a person didn't even think of trying or aomthing. Like you don't even have to drive. You can fire the gun while your buddy drives. But did you know you can also have your second npc buddy drive a vehicle behind you, following you like a squad. You can have all three characters flying separate planes. All kinds of craziness. So many cool memories with that game.

u/nuyxolmao Sep 29 '21

Currently working on 100%ing all AC games. I’m on Unity.

90% of this game is opening chests lol.

2

u/crowqueen Sep 29 '21

I have Unity installed but I got a bit fed up at the lack of progression necessary to continue with the story. It takes a long time to 'level up' to where it's comfortable to progress the story, and in the mean time it's just chests and crowd events and I'm not sure even why my O button doesn't work to tackle thieves.

It's a great game and I enjoy it, but it isn't as rewarding as some others.

1

u/nuyxolmao Sep 29 '21

I’ve enjoyed it overal, but yeah it’s got some pretty big problems.

2

u/crowqueen Sep 29 '21

Oh yeah. I much prefer the AC of Unity and Syndicate to the more combat focus of AC Valhalla.

2

u/take5b Sep 29 '21

The flags from the original AC is one of the most infamous pointless collectibles but I do think the chests from Unity are worse.

Chugging through Celeste.

You know, after finishing Hollow Knight, I thought I’d have platforming pretty much down. Turns out that was a bit too optimistic.

But I gotta know what’s in that last chapter…

u/UnifyTheVoid Sep 29 '21

First time I beat path of pain it took me hours. After spending the next two years mastering Celeste, I came back to Hollow Knight for another play through. (Godhome)

Beat path of pain in 15 minutes. Celeste makes you a god at platforming.

Don't I know it!

Downloaded it on Friday. My partner and our kids were out of town. I uh... "accidentally" stayed up and played it for like 27 hours straight! 🤡

u/hairykitty123 Sep 29 '21

Playing through prey for the first time. Pretty cool but damn it’s hard, was thinking about 100% the game so not using any typhon powers. Game is pretty long though so not sure I’m going to do another play through solid 8.5/10 game though. Arcane studios really knows how to do the play as you want style. It’s almost too much sometimes. Do I gloo gun and wrench him or hack that turret. Or sneak up and shotgun him this is without the powers too

2

u/Ex-SyStema Sep 30 '21

Isn't it awesome !? Just go with the flow lol an old version of thr game gave you more resources than what you put in when when recycled stuff. So ammo and health wasn't an issue ever. They fixed it by now of course

u/crowqueen Sep 29 '21 edited Sep 29 '21

Horizon Zero Dawn. Amazing game, intuitive, fab graphics and good story. Not terribly challenging but that's a plus in my book since I don't like games where you die every metre or so along the road.

Far Cry 5. Want to cause mayhem in a safe way in a good cause? That's the ticket. Not always as forgiving as HZD, but for an hour or so's ability to watch cultists get devoured by a cougar and shoot down helicopters, it's an absolute blast. Quite literally when you chuck a molotov cocktail at someone :). Muscle memory sucks though -- going from using R1 for melee in HZD to accidentally chucking a molotov is very frustrating, particularly if you're in a closed environment at the time and die to your own backdraft. I found it amusing when doing the Hope County Jail mission that I couldn't shoot my allies at all but died repeatedly until I got the hang of the RPG bazooka. I mean, I'm glad they don't have friendly fire in the game to ensure story progression after the event, but ... I'm rather fond of not blowing myself up.

u/alc6379 Sep 29 '21

I was huge into Diablo 1 back in the day, but I didn't have time for 2 or 3. Now the only problem is that I can't stomach paying $50 for a game that was released 21 years ago.

3

u/Brewe Sep 29 '21

Just remember that if you've played other modern action RPGs, Diablo 2 might seem quite stunted, lacking a lot of features that might seem like they would be a given.

I'm personally enjoying it immensely, but I'm not sure I would if I didn't know what I was going in to.

u/Verano_Zombie Sep 30 '21

I played it around 120 hours and forced myself to stop and uninstall it. Don't get me wrong, I insanely loved it, but I was hooked up to it so much I wasn't playing anything else and even thought about it when I was outside my house. Straight up addiction.

Subnautica for the first time and completely blind.

Had no idea what this game was about and wow, it's been consistently blowing my mind. Just built the Cyclops and can't wait to see where that takes me. The progression, and total lack of any handholding, is insanely well crafted.

2

u/jacobo1234 Sep 30 '21

Depending on if your far in (are you last the second palace) I would consider just restarting on royal. The QOL features make the game slightly faster and less rage inducing. Playing the nearly 100 hour game twice is a big ask

2

u/Darkrai240404 Sep 30 '21

Over 70 hours into the original already. Switching at this point isn’t really worth the extra content.

Trails of cold steel 3 and Outer wilds

2

u/Zealousideal_Bill_86 Sep 29 '21

I’ve been playin Remnant: From the Ashes and enjoying it. I heard it described as Dark Souls but with guns and I think it’s accurate, but the game adds enough to the formula. My cons are that the character models are a little goofy and they themselves are a little cliche, also, I get the sense that the game is balanced for multi-player and I’m playing solo, but I’m still having fun. It’s decently challenging but not overly so, has fun gameplay, and I like the level design which so far feels like mix of Nier Automata and Devil May Cry 5

2

u/TitaniumDragon Sep 29 '21

I beat Outer Wilds last night.

I liked it, but the puzzles that involved waiting grated on me.

The core discovery aspects to it and the overarching plot were neat, though I was a bit disappointed that the solution didn't involve tying the rest of the characters into the time loop so that they could all do stuff to help at the same time and thus bypass the 22 minute time limit. It also kind of saddens me that the Quantum Moon puzzle- the coolest meta puzzle in the game - is utterly unnecessary to actually solving the game.

But still, it had a nice feel to it and there was a lot of clever stuff in there.

Next on my plate is probably Devil May Cry 5.

u/Pizzicato_DCS Sep 29 '21

Going really deep on the first season of Hitman, and trying to get all of the mastery challenges.

u/jacobo1234 Sep 30 '21

Halo the master cheif collection is 40 and contains 6 of the best shooters of all time. (5 of the best of all time and then halo 4 lol) you get 40+ hours of genre/industry defining campaigns to play with up to 4 of your friends! They have a simple yet deep story with tons of hidden goodies throughout the missions and moments that make you feel like you can do anything. Cinema quality cutscenes and banger soundtracks can make you forget that it's a fictional world. Then you get the most influential multiplayer series in all of videogames. Its iconic for a reason, and still gets updated and supported. I personally love the level editor called forge, it's super powerful but still easy to use. Completing the package is a wave defense mode, custom games, competitive awards, 700 achievements and mod/workshop support is coming soon! After 20 years they are still updating theese original Halo titles! And if you want more you can play halo infinite which comes in December. Idk why I'm fucking shilling for halo so hard lol. I got game pass a d wanted to see what all of the fuss was about and holy shit I love this franchise now!

u/Sosaboy Sep 30 '21

oof mate I appreciate you writing all of that I truly do. But… I have 1500 hours on MCC HAHA and all the achievements 😖

u/jacobo1234 Sep 30 '21

Are you hyped for infinite? The beta is so much fun (though admitidly a bit rough around the edges, and dissapointing omissions such as forge, dual welding, assassinations, playable elietes, coop campaign etc) can't wait for Friday so I can play some btb

3

u/Sosaboy Sep 30 '21

Unfortunately I’m not to excited. I played about 20 hours of the beta and honestly wasn’t a fan I am hopeful that the game turns out better but with all the drama the studio has had. Also it missing so much core features that make halo well halo. But again I am hopeful and will still be playing it :)

u/apresentformyfriends Sep 29 '21

Quick question. I’ve never played a Nier game; would you recommend playing Automata or Replicant first? From what I understand, Replicant is a remastered prequel to Automata? I could be wrong. I’ve heard good things from Automata. Just finishing off some games before I get into it. Edit: grammar

3

u/GamerExtraordinare Sep 29 '21 edited Sep 29 '21

You have that correct. Even though it’s technically a sequel, Automata has an entirely new cast and the story stands on its own, minus a few minor callbacks, so you don’t need to play Replicant first.

I really enjoyed Automata, but as mentioned, found Replicant to be pretty poor. I’d suggest playing Automata first, because you’re much more likely to enjoy it, and if you do enjoy it, maybe give Replicant a shot afterwards.

A Plague Tale Innocence

Almost halfway through, playing for the story, visuals and setting. The gameplay is a bit frustrating at times because there are parts that are extremely unforgiving in terms of timing, and the game’s own mechanics get in its own way. This is on top of gameplay elements that are extremely simple.

So I find myself for example in moments where I have to walk slowly with a stick on fire from one spot to the next before the stick fire goes out and I get eaten by rats. I attempt the walk 6x, doing nothing really different until I get it right. Since there aren’t a lot of enemies or paths or tools or even difficulty settings, the game is “easy” because it’s so linear. But then difficulty is added by just making the precision incredibly finnicky at times, and I can’t tell if it’s on purpose or not. So I end up watching rats eat my character over and over again.

But when things go right it looks awesome. I just really like single player, 3rd person narratives and playing a game with the purpose of propelling the story forward. I’m a bit fed up with how these games now push open world and all these distractions, so I’m enjoying playing a game where every action is about the actual story and survival.

u/SilverEyedFreak Sep 29 '21

u/Vidimivici Sep 29 '21

Played the demo for "Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars". It takes all the basic elements of an old school RPG and stripped it down into a card game. The narrator acts as the DM and if you've played Hand of Fate then you get the gist of the atmosphere it tries to portray. The whole demo (about an hour?) feels like RPG training wheels but it has a ton of potential. I might go back and play Phantasy Star IV or something now.

Most of my time is still sucked into Red Dead Redemption 2 still. Its a gameplay loop of high highs and clumsy interactions. The world is immersive and that keeps me coming back.

u/[deleted] Sep 29 '21

Control

I like the visuals and the mechanic of your gun regenerating ammo over while (when not shooting) is nice. Movement and aiming is also fine, but I wouldn't have expected it to be bad anyway.

My only concerns early on (about 30 min in) is how it feels a little unforgiving in difficulty. I'm shooting and headshotting these enemies and they're landing some hits on me, but I'm losing a lot of life and the amount I regain after defeating them is significantly less. The enemies are more accurate than you'd suspect.

Only other issue is also that you're beginning the game with no real knowledge of what's going on, and I suppose that's kinda the point: you play through and figure it out. But it feels off that Jesse is always talking to herself and seemingly talking to this other entity that's... possesses her? That her melee attacks are sorta imbued with an impact/force so that things go flying when she strikes, possibly due to this entity? I get that the whole thing is meant to be mysterious, but it doesn't make me care about this protagonist from the get-go.

1

u/ManaBuilt Sep 30 '21

Oh man I just finished playing through the main campaign in Control and it quickly became one of my all time favorites.

Regarding the difficulty, it can really spike up out of nowhere sometimes. Make sure you're checking yours mods for both yourself and your weapons, upgrading the skill tree, and taking cover where necessary. My biggest suggestion would be to upgrade your Throw/Launch ability first, when that becomes available. Most, but not all, enemies in the game will be completely helpless against the power of that ability. Many combat encounters involved me shooting very little. But overall yes, be prepared for some combat encounters to take a few tries; it can sometimes get brutal but it never lasts for more than a single combat encounter before leveling back to a normal difficulty.

As for the story and mysterious world, it's all pretty subjective. I think you eventually learn to accept that this world doesn't always make sense and there's some things that just can't or won't be explained, and for me personally I enjoyed it because it meant the atmosphere of the game was retained. Kind of like how the best monster movies are the ones that never quite show everything, that's how control treats its story and world, where you're just always on the edge of understanding things, and I think it's pretty neat.

Playing Kingmaker has put me into a bit of an isometric party based RPG kick.

Pillars of Eternity has a better story and smoother gameplay, but I am hooked on the complexity of the Pathfinder character generator.

I have picked 5000 things in new world, played ten hours, used the same three attacks since hour 1 that will never change, and have spent 90% of my time walking from point a to point b.

right now I'm playing waiting on a 400 person que to log into a server that didn't have log in problems yesterday.

I just finished Psychonauts 2 and it is a 10/10 in my book. Absolutely amazing all of it.

I went back to work and the time I had before for video games was greatly reduced. I'm playing Song of Horror (got to the second chapter after two characters died on me) and continuing Metro Exodus (got to the part in Summer). I miss having that extra free time to pursue more "challenging" time factor titles like SnowRunner or Project Zomboid.
And that's just for video games!

I downloaded Trailmakers yesterday through Game Pass and played it a few hours. The concept is intriguing but it's too slow paced for my taste. I'll play it some more later but I feel there is a high chance that I'll drop it.

I was playing pokemon blue. I shuffled up my pokemon cards and dealt myself 6 after every trainer battle as a way of randomizing my team.

Enjoying the new Diablo 2 game with some of my friends. The game is fun and challenging so far! Besides, I'm still running some Hades and going on my 30'ish attempt! Wish me luck 🤙

Today we playing more Eaatward. Such a lovely little jem. But also baldurs gate 3 and pathfinder wrath of the righteous. Those two games take up a lot of time so it's nice to break that up with some lighthearted fun evey now and then so also biomutant .

Yeah I play a lot of games lol I'm lookikg forward to the weekend. Lot of cool games coming out .

Astria ascending, which is like a spiritual successor to octopath traveler. And also far cry 6 drops soon too.

Monster Hunter: World. Started with Rise and now moving back a little. The graphics are great and the mechanics interesting, but I find myself annoyed a but more often than in rise. Usually this is due to stunning, which was bad in rise already, or annoying mechanics each monster has, like rathalos always being out of reach, or odogaron being high on straight fucking crack.

Colors Live. Haven’t gotten started on my first work yet but looking forward to it. I’ve been trying to get into art for a while and I’m glad I discovered that game.

Unravel 2 with the wife. Eastshade is kind of the perfect game to relax with. I loved god of war 4 so I bought the original one this weekend for the ps2 and just started that. It's baffling that one of the flagship franchises for Sony, you can't play the first 2 games of the main series beyond the ps3. Not even digitally.
