    I just watched the first five minutes of the Quick Look and don't want to watch anymore

    Vaas is fucking menacing as hell and I want to save every last bit of it for the actual game

    Yeah, though, some of Jeff's comments were kind of horrifying in a way, along with a lot of the user comments on the video

    If you're gonna hate someone just because they're financially secure and enjoying their youth, you can fuck right off

    There really aren't enough pieces of media where the civilized white guy comes to the rescue of the good tribal savages (who are being repressed by the bad tribal savages!) and learns a little bit about himself in the process

    is this one of those games or what

    Nah, totally their fault for not finding out if the islands they were visiting were having armed conflict and nautical piracy issues.

    Jeff doesn't go for poverty tourism, though. That's a mark in his favor.

    My copy should (hopefully) arrive today.

    I am super excited by this. It looks like they've removed most, or all, of the annoyances from FC2, and it's got some interesting characters to boot.

    Jeff Gerstmann of Giant Bomb was talking in the Far Cry 3 quicklook about how the protagonist and his friends are all super awful and deserve to be sold into slavery and/or killed.

    Which is more than just a bit much considering just the intro, but he's played 4 or 5 more hours into the game so maybe they get extra awful I dunno.

    Even if it's meant to be a joke that is some tasteless shit and goes to show some massive ignorance on his part about human trafficking. Nice going Jeff Gerstmann, you just plummeted to the level of douchebag overnight. That takes effort!

    The definition of insanity:

    Sincerely overreacting to an overreaction which was itself for comedic effect.

    Also this game rules.

    And it was $70 AUD which as insane as it might sound to Americans is actually a damn good price here.

    What video card is that

    radeon HD 7850

    it's not specific to this card, it was a thing Newegg was doing

    they might still be doing it

    basically every AMD-based card came with a Farcry 3 preorder

    it also includes a 20% discount on the new medal of honor

    Some things are not cool to joke about. At least not in the manner he did. He stated it as "deserves." If he said, "I don't care to rescue these people," it would've been a soft enough blow to be funny.

    I don't know if my laptop will be able to play this, so I might have to just get the 360 version.

    Vaas is the best villain of any game this year, it's not even close.

    Jeff's comments were totally overreacted for comedic effect. Going THIS DUDE IS A MONSTROUS DOUCHEIs being pretty silly over a little thing.

    Also I watched the brotastic intro and now am not gonna watch anything elsebecause that was perfect.

    Vaas seems like an amazing character

    I think i'm going to get this. Hopefully I'll actually be able to stand playing it unlike Farcry 2

    I think it's fucking ridiculous and borderline offensive to even suggest that J. Gerstmann makes jokes or that he is not 100% sincere about selling people he dosn't like into slavery.

    Yes, no matter how awful the protagonist and crew are, that is some stupid shit coming from him. It's on the same level as making a rape joke.

    As a matter of fact, with the women in the game, that is making a rape joke, saying that they deserve to be sold into slavery. Does he even know what happens to women and men who are sold? The kind of horrors they are put through? Multiple rapes, forced addictions, torture, literally being worked to death.

    That shit's indefensible. And defending it due to the fact that the protagonists are unlikable because they're rich or white or assholes is not what people should be doing here.

    I don't care whether people are in my social or economic sphere, they don't deserve to be hurt for not being there. And joking about how a group that they don't like should have terrible things happen because of what they are, is pretty much the definition of that.

    Look all I know is that the animation quality and voice acting are combining to some stellar goddamn performances in everything I've seen about this game so far.
