You know, for being a gift giving season, the video game industry isn’t releasing a lot of high profile games. There are the more obscure games coming out, like Wii U staples that probably took two months from development to production to make, and the indie games getting pumped out on all of the networks.
Far Cry 3
December 4th, 2012
Xbox 360, PS3, PC
This open-world FPS is the third in the series. For those of us in the wintery season, maybe this is just the tropical boost we need? Especially on our Black Friday TVs that still cost too much.
Beyond the limits of civilization lies an island, a lawless place ruled by piracy and human misery, where your only escapes are drugs or the muzzle of a gun. This is where you find yourself, trapped in a place that’s forgotten right from wrong, a place that lives by the principles of violence.
In Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, stranded on this mysterious tropical island. You dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles you choose to fight down to the allies or enemies you make along the way. Slash, sneak, detonate and shoot your way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong. Beware the beauty and mystery of this unexplored paradise and live to outwit its roster of ruthless, desperate characters. You’ll need more than luck to survive.
