  • Fixing Far Cry 4's Annoying Intros (On PC)

    … The PC version of Far Cry 4 launches with around 117 unskippable splash screens, subjecting the user to all kinds of ridiculous Far Cry branding (and that of supporting companies). After a while it becomes a hassle, but it's OK, you can get rid of them. As RPS point out, you can just use the same (or similar) workaround you can for other games…

  • Unlike Other Games, Bugs Actually Make Far Cry 4 Better

    … The first time I saw a dancing corpse in Far Cry 4, I stopped dead in my tracks. It was in the middle of a tense firefight at the bottom of one of the radio towers scattered across the chaotically beautiful world of Kyrat. I'd just shot a full round into a soldier trying to start his ATV. I thought he was done for, so I ran past him to take…

    … a specific subset of the 'animals that run towards you' group, however, that specialise in making your life a painful misery. And we're not talking about the bears, tigers or wolves here.

  • Far Cry 4 Is Full Of Beautiful People

    … OK, so the real stars of Far Cry 4 are the fish, eagles and badgers, but just for a moment, let's remember there are humans in the game as well. Humans who look pretty good! It's a weird thing to get hung up on, but one of the coolest things I've noticed in the game so far is the attention to detail on Sabal's jacket; how it looks like an old…

My money's on the other secret ending just being that Ajay escapes the compound, takes a wrong turn, and gets eaten by some horrible devil bird. Or maybe a honey badger, those are pretty nasty too.

    … Far Cry 4, Ubisoft's new bird-attack simulator, is a very nice-looking game. Unfortunately, a lot of PC gamers are having issues getting it to run smoothly. The game is generally a lot of fun, but the PC version suffers from regular micro-stutter, an issue with which PC gamers are becoming all too familiar. If you've been playing on PC, you've…

  • The Safest Way To Take Outposts In Far Cry 4

    … There used to be two main ways to take outposts in Far Cry: sneaking around and stabbing everyone inside, or going in guns blazing. Thanks to the addition of the tiny helicopter, though, Far Cry 4 players have discovered a third option: death from above. Here's YouTuber "punish" showing us all how it's done in a recent gameplay video…

  • This Guy Really Hates Far Cry 4's Goats

    … No, not guts. That's not a typo. This guy constructed an entire Far Cry 4 level—and an elaborate one, at that—for the sole purpose of rampant goat slaughter.
