    Is Far Cry even grim nihilism?

    Like I haven't watched the new trailer but everything so far has been all about fighting against that cult and taking back your town and they've been leaning more into the "fun action romp" tone as it has become clear they aren't going to be political

    It's violent sure but I wouldn't call it grim or nihilistic

    I mean

    Is it outside of TLOU 2 and David Cage's shit

    Horizon was really hopeful, Spider-Man looks Spider-Man as fuck, Ghost of Tsushima looks dark but not nihilistic and Concrete Genie looks like a delight

    they opened with a far cry and closed with tlou

    that says a lot about their intent on tone to me

    Or, it could be "Ubisoft paid us money for the opening slot and Naughty Dog games are really damn expensive so we have to do a ton of marketing for a game that isn't going to be out for 2 years"

    People thinking about money in video games?

    Whatever next?

    uh........ i don't think any far cry* could be termed a "fun action romp". i mean the initial trailer for 5 had a bunch of people on their knees about to get shot in the head and some screaming women being dragged off for something awful.

    They sure are trying their damndest with every single trailer after that one to sell it like that

    The initial reveal was the only thing that made it seem like they were in any way interested in telling a relevant story

    They 100% try and have Far Cry be 50% serious 50% fun action times all the time

    Far Cry 3 had you burn up pot fields while Skrillex and Damien Marley played and you bought guns from a cast of colorful weirdos and had weaponized tigers

    Far Cry 4 had their Danny McBride-esque chopper pilot buddy as well as the various comedic moments that the villain brought between his moments of menace

    Like I am not saying it works, it creates hella tonal dissonance, but they absolutely shoot for it

    Look at this trailer



    Opens with people getting brained by cultists and a ruined town

    Closes with Borderlands esque intro cards and BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM

    Initially they presented the game as being very serious

    And then some actual serious shit started occuring, and I think they decided they were not qualified or interested in trying to address any of that and the marketing took a very hard turn into "Look how wacky this all is!"

    and that marketing could have had a much different tone if they had wanted it to! TLoU 1 wasn't entirely about the grimness of humanity's inhumanity, and its marketing was more mixed leading in to launch

    to close a conference with someone of this tone is so so so deflating

    like wolf 2 is a perfect example of a game that pivoted its marketing to match the tone of the period it was releasing in really well

    next trailer is probably more broad story and snippets gameplay

    then e3 is gameplay and release date

    yeah but the problem is you always walk into the office and accidentally pick up the baby before you sign the adoption forms and then the guy there pulls out an enormous shotgun and chases you until you either die or can escape in to a deeper level

    It felt weird and wrong to see Call of Duty having the iron cross on the red banners instead of the swastika. If you're gonna do world war 2, fucking do world war 2.

    Didn't the open with the Sucker Punch game?

    And there was an entire hour before hand of neat looking indy and PSVR games.

    I thought their lineup was pretty varied actually.

    Apparently this was announced back in May and slipped under my radar, but it's being done by the Top Spin team. Fuck yesssss
