Far Cry: New Dawn | Done

Despite my annoyance at the ending of Farcry 5, I decided to take a little time off the game and then jump into New Dawn.  I finished July 2021, after I successfully defended my dissertation.I started off thinking that this was m'eh game, probably disappointed from the ending of FC5, but in the end, it was pretty solid. Started at the end of March, put it away until July when I binged it.The post-apocalyptic

Farcry 5 | Done

A little more catch-up on games finished in the past year. This one I finished March 2021I picked this game up right after I finished Farcry 4. After being conditioned for the past two farcry games to seek out towers so that I can clear up the map (not to mention more than a handful of assassin's creed games), I had a big guttural laugh when I went to the first tower, climbed it, cleared it, and then

Far Cry 4 | Done

 Next up on my binge of Far Cry games, Far Cry 4, which I completed December 2020 (took long enough to write this, eh?😜)Continuing on with the tradition of "WTF?!?!", Far Cry sets you on a journey to the fictional nation of Kyrat. Kyrat is located in the Himalayas, and it seems to border Bihar, India since it is stated at the beginning of the game that the nearest embassy being in Patna.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon | Done

 Right after I finished Fac Cry 3, I kicked off the spin off game, Far Cry 3, Blood Dragon, which I finished October 2020The game is rather short, but it is a ton of fun. The game basically takes the basic structure of Far Cry 3, albeit in a smaller sandbox, and transports you to the "future" by playing a Kyle Reese type of character in a very 80s, terminator-style setting.  The language

Far Cry 3 | Done

With Gamepass expired in August 2020, I returned back to games I actually owned so that I can finish them.  The realization that I got was that even though Gamepass was fine, and a steal with the $1 update lifehack if you had Gold, it never really incentivized you to play what you owned because what was on gamepass came and went.  Anyway.  I finished September 29, 2020, and I played

Far Cry Classic | Done

OK, so it's time to kick off a series of reviews for the binge on FarCry.  I was wondering which Far Cry I should start with, and I needed up going with "classic" since it was available, on sale, and other versions were not (I suppose I could have looked for a used copy on eBay or something...)Anyway, this is a backward-compatible title from xbox 360, and I finished on 10/28/2020In this game,

Far Cry 6 trailer

Another Ubisoft trailer, this time for Far Cry 6. I finished Far Cry 2 a while back, and went back to the original before I retired my Xbox 360.  I guess  I need to catch up with the games (probably after my dissertation is done).  Giancarlo Esposito makes for a good bad guy (at least in this trailer).

Trials of the Blood Dragon | Done

Recently, another game I 'completed' was Trials of the Blood Dragon. While I did get through the story of the game, I am not sure that this is one of those games that you 'complete'.  When I got this game for free through xbox live 'games with gold' a number of months ago I thought that it was more of a Far Cry game, but it's basically a Trials game with Far Cry highlights.  I had actually

Far Cry 2 | Done!

Last semester I began to play Far Cry 2 on my xbox 360 on my free time (free time, LOL - I suppose that's why it took this long to complete the game :p)  I got the game as part of a far cry pack a few winters ago, and with the pile of 360 games becoming smaller and smaller, this series was next on my list.  Far Cry (the original) wasn't available at the time, and it seems that the stories
