What are you on about story is all JC2 is about. I didn't even know you could blow anything up..

oppressive governments and guerrilla warfare is the basis of the story, since the first game. much like what you would do in GTA games, only difference is that it works in context to this type of setting. (hence the title Just cause)

Any kind of approach to gameplay works together with the story; all to cripple a government's power and structure.

Nice that They added a little bit more creation to Rico, and of course MODs can take over from there. at least it's not an other Bruce willis rip

His outfits have been the basis of a lot of shooters.
I just hate it when artists lose their creativity to standout or search real departments for ideas, and that they have to resort to movies for clothing designs.

Looks like willis is an uncharted fan. No-one does the half tuck quite like drake though.

"Live free or die hard" is 8 years old. it's obvious to see who set the trend.

and uncharted was revealed a year earlier...what is your point? that grounded "everyman" characters wear real life clothes? *gasps in shock*

but frankly we're arguing originality in a thread about a games who's first iteration looked like desperado's antonio banderas. it's all kinds of pointless. lol

on-topic though. this game looks far too JC2.5 for me. there's just not enough depth or focus to make for a particularly rewarding or well designed experience. the moment you've surfed a plane the novelty wears off and you never end up doing it again. but that's kinda what these games are all about. novelty ways of getting about but ultimately doing the same old shit. my only hope is that it is like the second game. £5 after a few months, then i might give it a punt :D

That Crackdown wingsuit was amazing and hard to master. But if you did it just right you could fly around the map. Good times.

If you're talking about which came before The first Die hard was in 1988, 27 years ago. the outfit design in UC4 is an obvious copy of a 8 year old movie in a series that's 27 year old. ND's source of inspiration is movies for which they take some of the qualities and put them into their games.

JC3 seems like a pretty fun game to me, it's got lots of exploring and it's offering extra features gameplay wise in it's map.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I love my Thinkpad Yoga. Shame they don't really make it anymore. There are like 50 Yogas/Flips and one thinkpad but it's bigger. (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: there are a fair few apps now that do the job well enough for me not to miss stuff on desktop. i'd likely return to desktop to finish anyway. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Maybe I'll grab a new Mini soon and a 9.7 inch pro after the refresh. Maybe they'll be "cheap" (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX i have a 12.5 inch laptop too (Thinkpad Yoga). And while the digitizer isn't as good as Pencil it does have the benefit of running real applications. (4 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: it wouldnt be mine either, but it would be a replacement to my ipad, so i kinda want a bigger upgrade...plus i like more canvas size. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They're just stupid expensive. $700 for a ten inch ARM tablet is kinda stupid. That Apple tax. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd be satisfied with a 9.7 since it would not be my primary pen input device. I think. (6 minutes ago)
