Far Cry 3 is clearly the last big release of this year so we couldn't fail to deliver a bunch of gameplay videos for you guys. We'll start with the 360 version but we should be able to add some PC footage by tomorrow if things go according to plan. As you'll see, this third installment is quite demanding for 7-year-old consoles, so don't be surprised to see a lot of aliasing, tearing issues and, maybe more importantly, rather low framerate (though it does not seem to drop). On PC, you will need a very good rig to be able to run the game in the highest settings, but even on high there can be occasional slowdowns with a GTX 670 (limited by a 2.67Ghz CPU). Many say that the game looks amazing but we don't think it looks that impressive compared to other games. Maybe we've gotten hard to please, you tell us. Update 3: 9 PC images added.
Note: The game has been patched today and it runs a lot smoother now, which allows to enjoy the environments a lot more. Also, the DirectX 11 feature which was odly blocked for some people is now available in the menu, so graphics benefit from it, even when not pushing all the directX 11 features to the maximum. In our images for example, we used no MSAA Antialiasing, standard Alpha to Coverage, and SSAO only. Now we're talking.
my bet is DOA Xtreme Volleyball sequel that we all want (3 Hours ago)
Kind of leaning towards Stardew Valley since I just played a few twitchy action/platforming games. (3 Hours ago)
@asdfg: I've been debating getting Stardew for a while. I kind of want to grab something tonight. Can't decide between The End is Nigh, Stardew Valley, and Enter The Gungeon at the moment. (3 Hours ago)
Got a 128 gb memory card on the way because I have a feeling that internal storage is gonna fill up fast. (14 Hours ago)
I'm planning on getting stardew, golf story and fast rmx which are cheap anyway so no big deal. Would have been nice to see a discount on splatoon. (14 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Nintendos Christmas sale has also started. None of the games on my wishlist went on sale though. :/ (15 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Would prefer a Ninja Gaiden 4 announcement but it'll probably be DOA6. Will definitely watch this weekend though. (16 Hours ago)
