    I *hated* Far Cry 2 for it's ridiculous respawning of enemies and much prefer RAGE 2's approach as it gives a proper sense of progression, which is rare in open-world games where enemies for side-quests do typically tend to respawn just so you have always got something to do.

    No.
    People hated it about FC2 because you could drive five seconds away from the checkpoint, turn around and go back... and all the enemies had respawned. And you could do this over and over and over.
    The enemies were set to respawn once you were so far away from the checkpoint.

    With RAGE 2, they are talking about making it so that after a certain amount of time, enemies will repopulate the outposts, and there will be more, and more difficult enemies.

    I completely agree.

    I guess it's a different point of view since I'd prefer to feel a sense of completion instead of a never ending map.

    I disagree with you, but I can't tell you you are wrong. If that's how you feel, that's fine.
    I liked some of the combat in FC2, I just hated everything else.

    As with RAGE 2, I'm curious to see how they will implement the "restocking" of outposts. If it will be an option players can pick, if it will just happen... how long after you clear an outpost, stuff like that.

    Guess it depends on what you want out of a shooter... but I could never get into that game because I thought it had horrible feeling gunplay. Shooting never felt good for me. So I hated it :p

    That said, Rage 2 has some of the BEST feeling combat I've experienced in a shooter. Up there with Doom and Destiny 2. Shame about the quality of everything else... but the gameplay alone made me want to clear just about everything on the map. As vapid as it was, it was nice mindless entertainment.

    I do agree with you on the sense of being part of the world, but farcry 3 have managed that aswell, i guess the best farcry games are those 2 and add to them the first one

    Assign a key to Sprint Toggle instead of Sprint Hold (or both).

    Day 30 patch incoming in a couple of days. Day 60 update now being worked on.

    I guess we can expect a new patch every month, kind of like Fallout 76. Seems like "games as a service" is the future model of game updates. DOOM Eternal will also use this model as it has a "year one" plan and more going forward. Cyberpunk 2077 will also be updated in the same manner based on community feedback and likely monthly post-launch updates.

    Today is 30 days since release, so, I guess we'll see when Steam does it's daily update.

    Are there still ppl playing this? Saw about 2 hours of videos and decided to step away from it. Gunplay isn't everything.

    Patch came out a few days ago didn't it? Guessing there's still stuff to fix though.

    EDIT: Few days ago! .... Two weeks well time sure flies.

    But more patches are in the testing depots so there's work still ongoing for fixing more stuff.
