This makes me wanna finish the side quests in FC5.
Maybe it will be the debugged version of Fallout 76.
Can't wait tbh. If anyone can make a huge openworld MadMax game atm it's Ubisoft with their AC Odyssey engine & gameplay formular.
Or... Avalanche. Partially because they already have... and, they are making RAGE 2...
^ Feminism goes strong in our age and times. Strong female characters and/or leaders, in every game last years is an unavoidable plague. It will sell better than FC5.
I'm not against equality by the slightest.. but it is starting to become a little forced and too much. I just want to play games and not have politics forced on me. That entire pic looks kind of questionable and almost like it has an agenda.. but then again it could just be chance and with no ill intention. The problem here is the timing with it. Everyone is so pissed off about the political correctiveness/feminist/etc going on in the world right now that it's really easy to jump to that conclusion. I consider myself a very rational and open-minded person, but I couldn't help but immediately think that the cover art was super "with the times". Take that as you will.. but I'm really tired of modern gaming. To be clear, I'm more so ranting about how the world has become more than this new Far Cry title or the picture itself. If it turns out good and doesn't have any sort of idiotic forced PC crap then great. It's just hard to not at least see a clear shift in the general aesthetics and message of games lately..
The crap going on with BF5 is enough to make me want to ignore online communities altogether.
The only issue I see...
Is that people see female characters in game art and the first word that pops up is "feminism".
It's not pandering, or catering to a group just by having a female character.
Nobody made these comments with RE1, 2 or 3. Or NOLF... Metroid... Tomb Raider... and countless other titles that had female leads.
This trend only popped up recently.
So now, no matter the reason, story or purpose... any game that puts a female character in a lead or strong role, is looked down on these days. And it's just... meh.
Oh, I agree (to a point). A lot of it is definitely a bunch of people getting upset over nothing. Some of it is agenda/PC BS though to a degree. The problem is when it's all so much that it's all you see now. Seriously.. go look at the Reddit Battlefield section. To be fair, I do have a problem with how Dice wrote out a bunch of male commandos to re-write it with a girl for "reasons", but that's something to actually argue about.
I would LOVE a NOLF3. Cate Archer was a really good female lead. I also like how Ion Maiden has Bombshell portrayed. It's funny though because I've seen quite a few complaints on the official Steam forums about her character and how she isn't "badass" or "sexy" enough.
Well... I never go on Reddit. And, I have never really liked DICE... so... I have no stance there.
The BF series has, IMO, almost always been throw away. Only the Bad Company games were worth while, and even then... BC2 fell short of the first game.
Yeah, NOLF is fantastic. Both main titles are great, and ones I play very often.
And, Ion Maiden... I'm very excited and happy for my friends at Voidpoint with how well their work has been received. I've known Richard for years, and it's fantastic to see him and his team getting such recognition.
But yes, even on the discord, every now and then there's some "person" saying Shelly should be sexier, or have an alt skimpy outfit... or something stupid.
Or, the recent comments about how Lara isn't sexy enough in the new Tomb Raider games. How she should wear the shorts, and show more skin... blah, blah.
There were also similar comments with Hellblade. People complaining that Senua wasn't sexy, and that she was ugly. Same with Darksiders III, there are still complaints that Fury is ugly... "She looks like a man"... or her armor should be skimpier...
It's just laughably stupid.
Meh are people who cannot see the propaganda. Like Netflix movies and series. Like Trump's bashing and every modern society keeps wasting time about female rights like it is a problem of our decade only. Whenever you like it or not, keep calm and watch the real world out there.
The picture above is what? Approving masochism, 2 girls going to torture a man, the new sexy of 21st century? If there were 2 men, going to do bad to a woman, the world would treble.
Going a bit off topic here (Just like the majority of this thread now haha).. but how in the world did you get NOLF2 to run for you? It is such a buggy mess that I had to give up after a few levels. I'm really hoping Nightdive or someone can break through the licensing hell that game is stuck in.
More so when the games were almost ready to be re-released having been updated and fixed up but then the licensing deal between WB, Fox and other involved parties well through as I recall it.
As for the cover well I wonder but we'll see.
Far Cry 3, 4 and 5 all had the major villains prominently on the cover with some nobody usually added in though for Far Cry 3 the captive Vaas toyed with had some actual development and can even be found in-game.
Although as a side game to the main installments there's Blood Dragon and Primal both featuring the actual main character on the cover in some heroic pose.
The games themselves are fairly layered and nuanced too telling one story and leaving another open for interpretation though again mostly the main games and not the side titles so this might be completely as it looks, maybe using co-op?
EDIT: And the villains are often more fleshed out and nuanced than the main character ever was, especially for Far Cry 5 with the deputy but it also goes for Ajay and Jason from the previous titles.
EDIT: Hmm co-op with character customization perhaps, FC5 had some of it although limited so expanding on that would be a thing, well we'll see soon enough.
you got anna snarksleezian, who is finally seemingly coming to the end of her public run at lest. lobbying for more female characters, like female characters have not been a thing going back to the tabletop games and nes.
So now you are giving players choices. And that is great outside established characters, most mp shooters going way back had female and male avatars. RPGs the same.
But established characters are like established history. they are immutable in fans eyes, just as history is history.
shoving women into a ww2 "historical" shooter was bad enough, but you had to one up it and give her a disability with a nonsensical terminator hand because you wanted to appeal to the dozen girls that play fortnight and also have an interest in ww2 fps shooters. and then you tell the fans to get bent and do not buy the game when they ask wtf? BF5 is blatant pandering with revisionist history and nonsense dressed up as a historical shooter. but dice is a swede company isnt it the feminism capitol of the world?
I never heard any of this laura not sexy enough, so i agree anyone complaining about her not showing enough skin or whatever is idiotic, tomb raider was always an action game and the only thing "sexy" about laura was she could move and fight like batman while packing two bad ass pistols, but she wore some short shorts and a tight top.
there are erogie games aplenty on steam if virtual girls are your thing.
And segunas sacrifice? yes a nordic age female on the verge of mental breakdown is not acting sexy enough allow me to face palm through the floor of my place a moment. The intern that motion captured and acted the part is extremely cute however.
Gamers have never had problem with females being characters, it was in the age where they are saying well f history so we can make women soldiers. make europe diversity central in "historic" games, and so on much of the current "diversity" push is pure nonsense. Making these places historically accurate triggers a certain segment of the public that writes angry blogs and articles and more than a few outright slanderous accusations about how you are a closet nazi because you portrayed europe as 90 something percent white, as it was historically. And armies 90 something percent male nm what historical age you want to pick.
To say there is not a concerted effort to push certain ideals through "historic" and "entertainment" focused content is pretty naive if you ask me.
Not like gamergate was a huge red pilling for gamers in general the way feminists and the gaming media aligned, against gamers that were calling out their corruption, but the feminist and media said it was all about sexism and gamers hated women, and we were all harassing the poor feminists that were lying about gamergate and the whole reasons behind it. And the gaming media as a whole are still pushing the notions of political actors like anna and others. they still occasionally bring up GG and still insist it was simply about sexism.
Honestly, I just installed it from the disc. Applied the 1.3 patch and then the widescreen fix from WSGF.
Didn't have any issues really.
Trailer is up...
It's a sequel to FarCry 5. Continuing after the
You can see a few familiar characters in the trailer, including Pastor Jerome and Joseph Seed.
Kind of looks like FarCry trying to be RAGE 2. But... still, I really enjoyed FarCry 5, and sometimes (Blood Dragon) when they just do bats***... it's really fun.
Also, the two girls on the boxart, are the badguys.
Lol wtf ... I can see why it's being compared to Rage 2 Trailer looks neat but I've found their FC trailers to be much more interesting than the final product ... I'll wait for some no-commentary clips when they show up.
Why $40 though? Much smaller game?
What the heck is this bowmore thing in the steam page? I can only find whisky if I search for it in google and ddg
Actually I see that cover more like the typical sexual fantasy of an average male. Female twins? Check. Hotness? Check. Kinky wink at the spectator? Check. Powerless man tied to a car/bed? Check.
It could easily be the scene from a xxx movie.
Cheaper price most likely because it's not the next full sequel. Not a numbered entry like 5, but a follow up to 5...
Using the same map. It's still set in Hope County. A lot of the same characters and assets. So, cheaper price. Which... I'm all good for.
Got nothing to do with feminism. Any company wants to broaden their costumer base, it's c(r)apitalism 101. This silly discussion came up with Last Jedi too, it's the same thing there. Disney did not invest 4 billion dollars to spread SJW viewpoints, they purchased because they want to make tons more money.
If only, if only male players could give up the idea to be constantly be the main focus. How many fantasies do you need?
& also what sertopico said.
(In my own case i tend to prefer to play with underdogs, and mostly prefer female voice-acting but I don't think it will matter in this game)
// Btw, just played through the DLC, only Vietnam was interesting, so I'm not very hopeful for this even though it of course is a new idea for the franchise.
