One of the things that I have never understood are the folks who like to flip to the last page in a book and see how it ends before they read the book. I've also never understood people that want to beat a game as fast as possible. If you are a gaming fan and plan to pick up the game Far Cry 5 when it launches next week, there is a way to beat the game before it even gets started. This secret ending is super easy to enable as well; you simply have to “not” do something. That something you don’t do is place the handcuffs on the main baddy of the game, Jacob Seed. In the first scenes of the game, you are part of a group of U.S. Marshals walking into Seed's church to arrest... Read more...
  We have the feeling that Far Cry 5 is going to be quite the controversial game when it’s released later this year. We got our first taste of murder, religious undertones and maniacal screams earlier this week, and now Ubisoft has revealed the first artwork for the game. Let’s just say that it’s more than a bit provocative. First and foremost, the image invokes Jesus’ “Last Supper” with his disciples, with Jesus being replaced by a religious cult leader (if the previous leak turns out to be right). This character, which has been likened to a facsimile of Tom Cruise’s ardent attachment to Scientology, is surrounded by a number of bearded men, a single female and a lone wolf. Besides the...

  Far Cry 5 is coming, and the hype train rolls out today with the reveal of the very first teaser trailer for the game. If the Himalayan atmosphere of Far Cry 4 was a bit too “out there” for you, maybe you will be more at home with the setting of Far Cry 5: present-day Montana. Montana might seem like a rather strange place for a modern, first-person shooter, but you can’t argue with the picturesque landscapes presented in the trailer below. We don’t have much to go on from the actual trailer other than the blood curdling scream of a man at the start, a shot of a person running through a field of high grass and the troubling sight of a man ringing a bell with the head of another (unconscious...

AMD is continuing to ramp up its Never Settle bundle, and this time the company is extending a free game to everyone who's purchased a Never Settle bundle, at any point. If you haven't heard of Blood Dragon, it's a ridiculous throwback to 1980s sensibilities, married to the FC3 engine. And when we say "Married to the 1980s," we mean it. Faux VCR tracking errors. 8-bit movies with no lip animation. A main character named Sergeant Rex Power Colt, voiced by  Micheal Biehn, who played Kyle Reese in the original Terminator. The actual gameplay isn't an 8-bit shooter, but everything about this game shrieks cheesy throwback, written by developers who know enough not to take themselves too seriously.... Read more...

Yes, Far Cry 2 has shipped. Another highly anticipated game, like Spore, but in this case a first-person shooter. And like Spore, you're going to be saddled with SecuROM DRM. However, they seem to have learned their lesson by watching the criticism EA took over Spore; here are the DRM details:You have 5 activations on 3 separate PCs. Uninstalling the game "refunds" an activation. This process is called "revoke", so as long as you complete proper uninstall you will be able to install the game an unlimited number of times on 3 systems. You can upgrade your computer as many time as you want (using our revoke system) Ubisoft is committed to the support of our games, and additional activations can... Read more...
Good afternoon folks! Ok, first thing that caught my eye when sifting through the reviews and spam in my box... 64 Bit Far Cry! The 64 Bit version of Far Cry is now available, and of course to use it you need Windows XP 64, and a AMD64 CPU.
