    What kind of caliber would you need to take down a Tyrannosaurus

  • mxmarksmxmarks Registered User regular
    Yesterday a yak was running away from a jaguar and rammed into my car so hard it started a fire, which spread and burned the jaguar up.

    The yak and i stood on a hill and watched the fire spread, and for a moment I was pretty convinced i should just shut the game off forever because thats a great ending.

    Spoiled because this may be disturbing to poor smof:
    A tyrannosaur is roughly the times heavier than an african bull elephant, so from what I know of hunting, an elephant gun is enough to piss it off without causing enough kinetic impact to actually shut the organs down. In short this means that once shot in the heart with an elephant gun a tyrannosaurus will die of blood loss, but with plenty of time to eat you first.

    According to the first Tomb Raider, it takes roughly only 32 pistol shots to take down a T-Rex

    Made a clip of when my friend was playing this last night

    For context: he was playing as Batman, helping the civilians fight criminals and attempted to fly off into the sky



    And then pressed the wrong button

    Reminder that the game can be beaten in like 15 minutes if you are just polite
    And you get called out on it if you reach the end of the game the long way around. That's a hint as to the existence of the secret ending, in fact.

    In my head the design process behind the secret ending was

    It wasn't in there at first

    And then the Stanley Parable came out about a year and a half ago and someone on the team played it and came to work all "dude dude dude dude what if we did this"

    Also, I just got literally stalked by a snow leopard.

    It followed me for a decent amount of time, peeking over crevices at me, staying perfectly still whenever I looked at it.

    I got nervous, so I decided to make a show of dominance and took aim with my bow for what I hoped would be a killing, or at least deterring shot.

    Then I heard a screaming roar as its hidden partner launched at me from out of nowhere.

    I got Jurassic Parked.

    That secret ending is amazing

    I wish I hadnt watched it though

    When I get around to buying it, gunna be really hard to play the game some other way.

    So I watched the 'secret ending' video.

    That's not really an ending?
    Unless it's meant to imply that you just join up with unhinged murderous stepdad guy and become the bad guy?

    Nothing about that intro up to that point makes him seem too mentally unhinged, though

    He makes it seem like Ajay's dad and all the rebels are just total assholes and are the actual bad guys

    He murdered his lackey with a pen, took a selfie with Ajay, put a bag on his head, had himself a little taste of human ashes (of Ajay's mom), and stabbed poor Darpan in the back with a fork before gloating at how hopeless his situation is.

    I really want to support Amita, because
    it seems like going for the intelligence saved a lot more people at the temple than protecting Sabal's little group of mates would have. It was a good call.

    but
    now she's trying to justify rebuilding a nation on the foundation of the opium industry and I'm like aww maaaan

    There are no long-term consequences to siding with whom you feel is right at each individual branching path. Think of it as a temporary fork that meets back up at the next decision point, instead of a true narrative tree. You could side with one of them for the entire game and then switch at the end and you won't be punished for it.

    But the greatest new thing in the game is that shitty little helicopter

    Far Cry 4: Content Rules Everything Around Me (C.R.E.A.M.)
    And there, I suddenly realize, is Far Cry. It is now and has always been—for better and, often, worse—a series that renders “alien” spaces and peoples in a way that is comprehensible and consumable for its players, who get to safely explore “the exotic” with unparalleled virtual physicality. The civil wars of the Global South and East are complicated, but progress meters, auto-aim, skill trees and sprawling lists of discrete goals make them something we can parse and enjoy from the comfort of our couches.

    I do not believe this is a good thing.

    You may have heard by now that there is an “alternate” ending to Far Cry 4 which is accessible at the very start of the game.
    You receive it by being passive, by waiting around when the bad guy tells you to wait around. After 15 minutes or so, he’ll show up and take you to your final objective, where you have the same moment that you would have after 20 or so hours of play. In its natural place at the end of the game this moment feels lackluster. But here, re-contextualized to the beginning of the game, it is touching, confident, and new. You are rewarded for patience, not gunplay or persistence in finding collectibles. There are no blaring UI elements, no deafening screams of boxes being checked off. It is, unlike the rest of the game, quiet.

    And then, in this alternate ending, Pagan asks you if you “got it out of your system.” He does not let you respond. “Good,” he says, leaning on the side of a helicopter, eager to confirm every bad thought you’ve had about the game. “Maybe now we can finally shoot some goddamned guns.”

    What a cowardly thing it was to not let that moment stand.

    6F32U1X.png

    That Alternate Ending reminds me of Metal Saga, where you can just tell your mom "Ok, I'll just be a mechanic instead" in the first minute or so of the game.

    End game, roll credits. You live the quiet life of a mechanic, instead of doing all kinds of sweet adventures.

    So uh

    Yeah

    Been playing this pretty much non-stop the past few days, while my copies of Rogue and Dragon Age sit there untouched

    This is easily, easily my current frontrunner for GOTY, and will likely end up taking that, just as Far Cry 3 did for me in 2012

    There is so much stuff to do, and nearly all of it engaging. The game continues to get the feel of stealth missions right - the De Pleur mission had me on edge and thinking about my moves and lamenting my mistakes, rather than screaming "this is bullshit!" when I was caught and the mission failed

    Far Cry 3 was a damn near perfect game, letting go of the story, and all the little quality-of-life changes make this an even better one. Things like getting bait from every animal you skin and being able to tie that to your grenade button which basically just lets you summon dangerous animals at any point, or the much-simplified syringe creation (and the instant-crafting of the healing syringe is a godsend)

    Autodrive is hit or miss, but the fact that the game even attempts it is so damn cool. Driving takedowns feel just as rad to pull off as they looked in that E3 trailer.

    Even the story's not bad! So far, anyways. Who knows if they'll stick the landing.
