This website is “under construction” or a “work in progress” at the moment. Some of the stuff from the older format is getting worked out and updated. This will be updated and re-organized through the next few weeks. Hopefully everything will be running smoothly soon
I originally started off high on Far Cry Primal, it felt like a good change for the series. I’ve wanted a good caveman game for a while, so the introduction of the cavemen era, and building a village to expand your tribe all had me very interested in continuing the story. The combat even felt somewhat different with being a Beast Master that could control an Owl to scope things out or several other animals to attack enemies from afar. Unfortunately after the first few hours I hit a wall of repetitive side missions and little story advancement.
After a few more hours into the game I felt like the story had entirely disappeared. I was doing a lot of side-quests and outpost take overs as I was making my way through the map to the main missions. The main missions primarily were to go acquire certain specialists to join the Wenja Village. One by one I got them to join the Wenja Village, but there really wasn’t much progress in the story except now the village had a Master Hunter, or Master Craftsman, that could now send me on hunting missions, or do certain tasks for them that didn’t feel much different than the side missions. I love Far Cry and it’s basic formula but even I started to feel like this game was becoming a drag and all of that “new” stuff was starting to feel very familiar.

There are some video game franchises I used to really enjoy, but nowadays I’ve gotten so uninterested in them or sick of them I’m ready for them to die off. I understand some people may like some of these games, and some people might still have interest in them but I think with these franchises I’ve reached my end with them. If any of these franchises re-gain my interest it’s going to have to take something very new or innovative from them, they might have to “re-invent” themselves. Anyways here is my list of franchises I’m sick of.
Rayman Raving Rabbids – I don’t have a problem with mini-game collections, I actually enjoy a few of them. I played own and enjoyed the first 2 Raving Rabbids games when they came out, it was a new mini-game series by the Rayman creators…I can get down with that.
But now it’s 10 years later and they’ve made 9 different Raving Rabbids games, that’s overkill. Who the hell keeps buying or green-lighting these games? I’ve had enough, I had enough awhile ago and I don’t think there is anything they could ever do to regain my interest. Read the rest of this entry
Let me first state that I am a pretty big fan of the Far Cry series, but I am aware that Far Cry 4 was too similar to Far Cry 3. I am/was hoping for something different with Primal, otherwise I was afraid Far Cry was going to become a copy/paste annualized sequel similar to another Ubisoft title….Assassin’s Creed.
So far I have played a little over an hour of Far Cry Primal and I am enjoying it, I can’t wait to pick it up again and play more. While it has a lot of the same game mechanics I’m used to from the Far Cry series, it seems to have a lot of new and different things going for it that I am very glad to see.
The biggest differences I’ve come across involve populating your village, controlling animals and obviously the lack of guns and technology. As I wander the open world I’ve come across captured people from the same tribe that need to be rescued. After rescuing them they become a part of my village. My village population has grown from 2 to 8 now, but I’m unsure of the benefits I receive from an increased population. I’m hoping to find the results pretty soon, it seems like a new element that could have a lot of potential.
I also recently learned how to control an owl, and that allows me to fly the owl over an area and tag enemies and objects, it’s similar to the goggles/binoculars used in previous Far Crys. Now that I’ve tamed a Wolf, I will be able to Read the rest of this entry
