Fuck it, I'll play later.

Here's what's going on, and I've seen it in more than one game (Chivalry, I'm looking at you).

There are two sets of controls for Far Cry 3. One set you get to change to whatever you want. And then there's the secret shadow set that stays the same.

So no matter what you change the controls to in the menu, you still have to remember these:

WSAD - flight
E - use (parachute); use (leave passenger seat of vehicle).

Currently, I've progressed through I'm guessing half the game, story-wise. If not, at least I've helped the Rakyat take over the entire north island, which is about half the game's landmass. The game is enjoyable enough that I marathoned my way through that portion.

Issues:
* I wish there were more healing animations. I can't count how many times I've watched that thumb get cracked back into place.
* Special takedowns are hard to control. Specifically, knife toss and gunslinger. The methods to execute each seem to be pretty much identical. I've never been able to use the pistol one (it always defaults to knife toss), but at least it suits my stealth style. Still, it would be useful for clearing areas I know have no reinforcements.
* There's a perk for dragging bodies after a knife takedown, but the game won't let you drag bodies if they're already on the ground. Seriously, if you're going to give the game a stealth element, don't be half-assed about it.
* I understand the exploratory motive, but who gives a shit what kind of animal leather you use for a holster? Each container's upgrade is pretty much the same color as the last. Why not give you a hunting motive that makes more sense, like a trophy room?
* You still have to log onto Ubisoft to play single player, and have to register the key given to you by steam through Ubisoft. Thankfully, their interface is much impoved, so it doesn't bug me as much as it used to. And at least it's not as ugly as GFWL.

You can't save in the middle of active missions.

no, i mean that i've played through the whole opening sequence up to meeting Dennis (and 2 hours past that, at one point) at least 8 times. so that's like 5 hours of my life that i've wasted right there

yeah i experimented with those suggestions, but then again i am playing the torrented version of the game...i'm just too damn poor to buy it right now. as soon as i get more money i'm just buying it. from the 3 hours i played it seems awesome.

This any good on xbox? Feel like it's not worth it on such a crappy old console system with such limited power and graphics.

Why is this game so casual and dumbed down once again?
FFS liberating all outposts just exterminates every damn pirate off the island.

I'm sure I saw pirate spawns after 100% liberation. Not much else to do though. Bonus mission sucks and ONE collectible (spider #1) is inaccessible after a certain point in the game, leaving me with 99% completion. \_/

Also, the ending:

Spoiler (highlight to read):
Sucks.

1) Join Citra, you murder your friends (wat) and die (wat). Save your friends, Citra dies (wat). Seriously, didn't Jason Vorhees Brody spend the last few days running around the island curing all wounds with relocating joints, duct tape and steady injections of green plant. Couldn't he have done the same for her, or is he just sadistic that way?

2) I could have killed any of the bosses at any time simply by sniping them if the game made them visible. Granted, that would make the story boring and less epic, but I'd still have all ten fingers.

It is rather disappointing how easy it is to completely remove enemies from the island. Take out 5-6 guys at a camp and suddenly a good mile or two around is is completely empty.

I want more camps to attack, and much bigger ones.

They did it because Ubishaft only seems to have listened to the retarded whining community in Far Cry 2 where every outpost would reset if you were at a preset distance from liberated outpost, so travelling from A to B and back to A and of course B again, you'd be facing re-occupied outposts ALL day long if you had to.

Now.. in FC2 that was somehow a hassle with the malaria going on and the jammed gun system but in this game it doesn't make any fucking sense AT ALL!

No malaria, No jamming..
You work your ass off from island to island to get your upgraded dick erected, a bag full of jizztastic weaponry and what do they give you when you liberate outposts?

A beautiful island filled with fucking animals for you to hunt down so you can craft cum shots in a syringe and inject yourself with UbiAids for eternity.

JOY!!!!

The AI in this game is amazingly good and that's why it hurts, they actually chase you down the entire island for as long as they sense your presence without repetitive patterns even.
The only thing they should have done is either an option for NG+ and/or a continue with or without endless re spawning AI in and around outposts but NO they had to cater the casuals who whined their fucking asses off over the system in FC2, the shit gamers who barely know how to play a challenge in the first place and doubtful even played FC2 longer than 10 hours.

Fuck.

I was kind of hoping to be able to replay whatever primary mission I wanted. Some were pretty fun, but I don't want to do it a second time just to get to a particular spot. Aside from waiting for Ubisoft to address the inaccessible "spider #1" collectible issue, there is nothing more I can do in this game but multiplayer. It's essentially become Cabella's Dangerous Hunts.

Also, in an effort to make the island look bigger, I'm sure they designed as many fetch quests to make you go all the way around mountains as possible.

the game is too easy

the hardest thing about the game is trying to kill panthers with the bow and arrow without abusing the terrain

The mission with the flamethrower was fucking dope (huehuehue).
