Far Cry Primal - This game needs a thread.

edited February 2016 in Games and Technology
Play as a beast master in the stone age. Build your village, recruit tribe members, steal outposts, take out your enemies with bows, clubs, and tamed deadly animals.

After watching a bit of this game being played by Gamespot on the PC, I can safely say this game is hype worthy.

In this game, you are set out in a sandbox adventure, killing animals for skin, meat, and fun. You are also able to take out enemy tribes any way you deem fit.

Also, you can set animals, enemies, and the landscape on fire.



The game will be released on February 23rd for Xbox one and PS4, and PC on March 1st.

    ...looks fine. Might even give it a launch window purchase. I love how visceral the spear chucking looks. I wanted a stone age game eversince Molyneux teased me with that B.C. game for the OG Xbox that never came to fruition.

    Also - watching this made me think the next Far Cry game should have us play as Robin Hood. That'd be dapper as fuck. It's quite certainly public domain by now.

    Sounds pretty mediocre via ArsTechnica -
    When you've mastered beast mastery—as well as all of the game's barely related plot threads—Primal... just ends. In my case, at least, it ended in the most anticlimactic way possible. Having buttoned up the game's only major threats, I returned to my tribe's growing village to speak with one last side quest dispenser. Then there was a perfunctory 30-second cut scene and then… the credits began to roll. It was the perfect abrupt close to a game without a lick of rising or falling action.

    If ever there was a game that deserved a hackneyed science fiction twist, it’s Far Cry Primal. Sadly, the game keeps the face below its sloping brow entirely straight, owl-operated drone strikes notwithstanding.

    If you’re still charmed by the blueprint that was originally laid out in Far Cry 3, then by all means give this club a swing. See how it feels in your hands. If not, then nothing Primal attempts is going to change your mind about the trajectory of the series. If you've never run this particular grind before, know that there are at least two other games out there with slightly more verve and variety.

    The good:
    •Looks and runs great on both consoles.
    •The craft, kill, capture loop still provides a low-grade catharsis.
    •The Beast Master system adds a tiny hint of variety.

    The bad:
    •The weakest story of any Far Cry game—which is saying something
    •Very little weapon and combat variety.
    •It feels mostly recycled from past games.

    The ugly:
    •Downing skulls full of human blood in order to see "visions."

    Verdict: Far Cry Primal is video game aspirin—numbing and nondescript but basically pleasant. Try it

    I think what gets me about this review, is that describing a 60 dollar game as numbing and nondescript doesn't mean someone should try it, there's so many GOOD games out there these days that the mediocre are a waste of cash and more importantly, a waste of time. Also, there's been no PC reviews, so you might want to wait and see. I don't recall how the previous FC did on PC out of the gate. Also for what its worth, setting stuff on fire has been in for a few games, I know in the third one I made good use of fire to kill off groups of enemies that had pursued me into the grass.

    I know nothing about Far Cry yet some of the things like living in the Mesolithic period, building your own weapons and goofing around as a hunter gather when it was tres chic sounds like fun
    But again I know nothing about Far cry other than it's a fps

    Is there a compelling "must buy at launch" reward or special multiplayer situation? This is a game I want, but I figure I'll get it in six months or so.

    What is this I don't even.

    I always thought the story was a detractor in Far Cry games, mostly because I never found it to be anything else than dull and unsympathetic. It's the core gameplay loop that brings me joy in these games. Granted, after Far Cry 3 & 4, it's grown a little bit stale. I think playing a beastmaster with bow and arrow, spears, and a club - doing all those things you do in a Far Cry game - gathering and hunting, crafting gear, leveling up, clearing outposts with stealth and/or brute force, will play and feel different enough from its predecessors to make it worthwhile regardless of the fatigue I felt by the end of Far Cry 4. The setting is 100% certified fresh, at the very least.

    That said, I highly doubt what it offers will be enough to get me past the friction of buying Primal in its launch window at full price. At 30 odd bucks though, I'd definitely enjoy this.

    P.S. I think it's a fallacy to qualify a game as mediocre because of franchise fatigue. I think the core gameplay loop of Far Cry 3 & 4 are excellent, and if Primal were your first Far Cry game, it still would be just about as excellent as it was for me when I first played Far Cry 3. It's fair to say that if one feels franchise fatigue, Primal is just about the same game, and probably won't renew anybody's interest. I just think that doesn't make it a worse game at its core.

    For example, I haven't played Zelda game in over a decade. I don't doubt that they're still just as fine games as they ever were. I'm still waiting for that next leap. Like the leap from A Link to the Past to Ocarina of Time. It's fair to say that Primal is not that, rather it's akin to one of the countless A Link to the Past-template Zelda games that came out for Nintendo's various handheld platforms over the years.

    They removed multiplayer for this one. I'd say if you never played a Far Cry game before and are curious, grab FC4 + DLC for... 30 bucks? It's on sale now and then on various platforms.

    This was a fairly cool ideal to try to take things, I have to admit, but it sounds like Primal will end up in that FPS subgenre of stuff that was interesting but quickly forgotten.

    Meta is at 77 right now. I have enjoyed plenty of games where the main gripe is "I didn't like story" etc. Because it always tends to be opinion and from everything I have seen of the game it is just what I wanted from Farcry for awhile. Perhaps it just speaks to me as a tribal minority... dunno. The environments look amazing. You can tame shit. Use that shit to kill other shit. And farcry out with stone age weaponry. Sale here. Cant wait to play it at 9 PST.

    Edit: Also I am not expecting a particularly strong narrative from a stone age environment anyway. Even Earth's Children series had its moments.

    Do people really make substantial mods for Far Cry games? Looking at the ones out for Far Cry 4 it's mostly HUD changes or things like unlocking all attachments and weapons from the start. I doubt the mod i'd want most will ever be made for any of them, even.

    It looks like it might be fun the way Far Cry 4 was. I'll wait until there's a sale.

    I wish I could drum up some personal interest in this game, but every time I look at it, I just see a huge waste of an opportunity for an open-world Not-Turok game. Seriously, we had "magic" in FC3, we had all the high-tech stuff in Blood Dragon, and now all this primitive stuff in Primal. Throw in some dinosaurs and BLAMO, super-awesome.

    But everything I've seen for Primal has generated zero interest for me. Pity.

    So I remember when the first Far Cry came out. That game was all about one thing -- far sight ranges. That game boasted the farthest sight distances of any game to that point. It was a sniper's dream. Plus the scanning tool for marking enemies was fairly revolutionary for it's time. And while Crytek no longer has the rights to the Far Cry IP, since they left Ubisoft, they carried over their scanning tool in Crysis and it is glorious there too.

    Back on the topic of Far Cry - One is honestly the only game I've ever beaten. I got FC2 for cheap during a Steam sale a while back. Booted it up. Thought I would give it a fair shot. Then they lost me when my character randomly started puking for no good reason. That random puke mechanic ruined the game for me. It's like in the Wii version of Super Smash Bros where your character can just randomly trip and fall over for some dumbass reason. Games don't need a random RNG bad thing that can happen to you as a gameplay gimmick. It's stupid and I hate it. Far Cry 3 looked neat, and I never played it! But I did play Blood Dragon! At least I started Blood Dragon. And I super duper enjoyed it. Then my hard drive crashed and I never went back to it after replacing the drive. I bought FC4 on my PS4, played it twice and lost interest. I didn't care for the villain. He was too "James Bond Villain"-y for me. He felt very cartoonish, over the top just for the sake of being a wacky villain, and he reminded me just a little too much of the villain in Skyfall, who was annoyingly dumb.

    And that's my history with Far Cry.

    Primal looks meh. It needs dinosaurs. Give me the ability to throw spears and rocks and dinos and I'm sold. I don't care if that isn't historically accurate. I want to mount up on a sabertooth tiger steed and then charge a T-Rex with a spear in hand. If they give me that, then I'll be interested.

    Yeah this game may just excite my inner native but I really, really, enjoyed the first 2 hours. Nothing groundbreaking really but it is really easy to drive forward a stone age story and the game is just beautiful. Insanely beautiful to me. Which also might be that I am plateau native so the vistas of rock and tree additionally call to me. First two hours are a solid 8 with leanings towards mid 8. Note: I am not expecting anything entirely fancy from a stone age game. In fact getting to overboard would dispel the immersion to me.

    Expert mode sounds sweet, since people like Jeff of GiantBomb fame say the game's too easy, which makes the progression system kinda pointless, since the low difficulty makes it unnecessary overkill.

    Shame it doesn't add more survival elements. Like healing by eating fills up your stomach, and once you're full, you cannot simply chow down on another piece of meat to get your health up.

    Maybe somebody will mod the game to be a full singleplayer survival game on PC, which apparently supports modding natively. Hell - these days, where even cosoles flirt with the idea of mods (and probably eventually monetizing them), we might even get such a thing on Xbox One and PS4 as well.

    On the topic of mod monetization, I guess the angle to take is to require a minimum price depending on the filesize of the mod. Like mods smaller than a gigabyte can be free. Anything between 1 and 10 gigabytes has to cost at least 5 bucks (one third of which goes in an even split to the platform holder and publisher of the game), and anything larger than 10 gigabytes has to be priced at at least 20 bucks.

    Seems sensible to me.

    I feel like far cry 4 completely burned me out on this, the story and characters were just such rot. And I can tell this one will have a similar meandering and pointless time waster of a story too. gameplay loops are fun and all, but not full price for me any more. Looks neat I'll check it out when it's half price or less. I'm actually ok with there not being dinosaurs, this is a rare setting and that's always a good thing to have

    I remember the spear combat being really awkward looking in previews and that also out me off, just like no weight or variety, just piddly Morrowind-style thrusts

    For me this doesnt matter much cause I don't think I've ever actually beaten a Far Cry Game. I play until the missions feel repetative and find something else to play. I enjoy it for a while up to that point tho.

    I picked it up last night. It's fun so far.

    I usually find this the thing to do for single player and MMO expansions only. Multiplayer games are make or break at launch, so the best thing for them is to wait for the reviews or word of mouth from fans.

    oh no worries, I don't think anyone thought you were doing that at all. In reality I SHOULD wait on 99% of games before I buy them (speaking as a day 1 purchasers of PC Arkham Knight!), especially considering my epic backlog.

    Rented this last night, played a couple of hours.

    Seems ok. This feels sort of Far Cry, but not quite. It's missing a lot of the stuff I like from 3 and 4 and it feels very slim right now, like they had an idea for a prehistoric game and then shoved it into the Far Cry engine. Skin this! Collect this herb! Sic this tiger on this dude! Stealth murder this guy! If this was released at $40, I'd be nodding my head, yes, that sounds about right.

    I think maybe the best thing, for me, is that it's enough not the Far Cry that I like that I don't feel like I'm just playing a weak Far Cry.

    I cannot stand this in video game writing. Every character is this big bombastic "look at me!" caricature in a desperate effort to make them not "boring". It leaves you feeling like nobody in the world is taking things seriously so why should you?

    It's also a problem with mission design, a lot of games have you doing all this zany crazy nonsense in an effort to be exciting or funny, when it actually just disengages you and takes you out of the world, ruining any immersive feelings.

    It comes from a misunderstanding that plot confusion and complication equals complexity and depth. It's why simple plots are often the most compelling, because it allows the emotive and immersive elements to breathe
