    I don't know.

    I kind of want to hang out with Pagan Min.

    YOU'RE WELCOME

    ?

    Do you mean like the splash screens that load when the game starts, or the cinematic intro when you first start your playthrough, or what?

  • Mr FuzzbuttMr Fuzzbutt Registered User regular
    Splash screens.

    So my friend's interpretation of this game has become that Pagan Min is the good guy and Ajay and the Golden Path are assholes

    Which is uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    If I only had the intro and the secret ending to go by, I'd be inclined to agree

    Luckily ubi and the creators of the far cry games have always asserted that they're intended to be a de construction of shooters in particular.

    I would assert the the writers of the series just suck at what they do.

    This works to remove the splashes, but this makes it so you can't connect to Uplay. At least, it did for me. As soon as I re-enabled the splashes, I was able to connect.

    What's so bad about the splash screens

    It's like ten seconds

  • Mr FuzzbuttMr Fuzzbutt Registered User regular
    Those ten secondses add up.

    I guess I'm not gonna play this for a while.

    Mouse acceleration is all weird, and aim assist isn't working properly with a controller.

    Mocap and voice acting is fantastic, which just rubs in how hollow and pointless every piece of dialogue and plot is. If you excised it all the game would actually make more sense. It's amazing how they can spend so much time saying nothing. I hated Gta 5 for this as well. Like I love the game for the gameplay, but I'm getting kind of sick of the environment artists and gameplay having to always do the heavy lifting for games. Just hire better God damn writers. It's getting ridiculous.

    Did you try this? Worked for me.

    I played a couple of really really awesome mid-game missions last night.

    Specifically,
    the one where you're escaping from prison and have to wingsuit through the valley all whooooooosh

    Felt awesome, man.

    I haven't had any problems with the writing in this game yet
    But to be fair I've only just now really started pushing through story stuff because apparently I can't go climb those other towers on the map yet which is bullshit

    Intro skip worked, but I dunno about stuttering fixes because I haven't played enough. And I haven't done that because the instant I realized mouse acceleration was still on, I uninstalled it.

    Not gonna play it until such a time I can actually control it satisfactorily.

  • monsterrormonsterror HEY ASSBUTT Registered User regular
    Ok, so aim-assist is an option, but does it barely do anything/do anything at all?

    I have it turned on, and I don't think I've ever seen it work.

  • Cilla BlackCilla Black Priscilla!!! Registered User regular
    This is a pretty great game

    Just opened up the north, and I've start claiming all of the towers and outposts already.

    The story is sort of whatever. There are bits I don't like, usually character oriented, but I don't really mind it. Pagan Min is a great antagonist, and easily one of the more vile human beings in video games.

    The best character though, so far, I think is actually Mr. Chiffon. The guy who sends you on the rare game quests. Your conversations with him before the quest are always surprisingly good. I've only got 3 quests left before I'll have crafted everything. Really hope the writers stick the landing on his finish.

    Hey so I'm playing this now
    It's a lot of fun! These eagles are bullshit though

    I can already see it coming though that the rebels are going to be just as bad as Pagan Min and the one guy is going to be a religious hardliner and Amita is going to push for modernization at all costs and in the end any victory is going to feel temporary and hollow

    I feel like there's an inherent cynicism in these games that make it hard for me to say I am a Fan of Far Cry

    You've pretty much nailed the narrative path

    I like the cynicism though

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    It's just... I know from the get-go there's no way I can save this country
    Does that not stop you in your tracks for just a second
    Does that not make you kind of sad

    No because radio towers and outposts

    Also I don't like saving the day in every game I play

    That's part of why I liked GTA4's story so much, it started in a shitty place and then ended in a different kind of shitty place

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    Look nobody loves the towers and outposts more than I
    But I'm never able to entirely put the story of any game out of my mind

    If I don't have a context for the chaos I'm perpetrating then I lose interest fast, but in this case the context is one of cynicism and futility, so it's... a tough spot for me to be in, intellectually

    The only good people in Far Cry 4 seem to be either dead or incidental sidequest NPCs.

    I do really like Mr. Chiffon a lot, though

    Need to get back in the game and finish up his stuff

    They put a lot of heart into his little minute long monologues at the start of every mission

    I've yet to ride an elephant in this game

    Wait I think I did maybe once, did they force you to at one point?

    If not then I didn't

    I'm too worried I will get an elephant killed to ride them recreationally

    I really wish I hadn't started this just before I left on my vacation, because a small nagging part of me keeps wanting to get back home just so I can play it.

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    Driving seems trickier in this one
    I think it's because of using the stick to accelerate and steer
    Also forget turning while reversing

    You can switch back to the old controls if you want to

    The single stick way ended up growing on me a lot

    All the vehicles are just as endearingly insane to drive as in fc3, and maybe just a little bit more with only the left stick to do so
