A return!

It has been over a week since my last post of substance. In my defense I have been on the road for three of the last five days and my evenings were filled with beer, spicy wings and, on one occasion, very nice sushi, none of which I paid for. It is also my last hurrah at my current place of employee as I am leaving in a week for a new position at a two man start up company. There is definitely risk involved but I will have an office to myself for the first time. I will have walls to put things on that I have no idea how to furnish. If nothing else it will an an adventure.

Speaking of adventures, the tidbit about spending about three hours at a tattoo studio on Sunday was not a joke. It is not complete so I am not going to post any pictures. Once it is done (at the end of the month when both my skin and wallet recover) I will put it out there for the internet to criticize.

It's cool. And right now my God does it itch.


Only a fool would complain about the bounty of activities that Far Cry 4 has to offer. Around every corner there is something to collect, find or kill that benefits the player in a tangible way. Until they don't because there are more things to do than there are skills to unlock. This is not a small disparity. Around the three quarter point of story missions there ceased to be any reason to do anything else. I had unlocked all the skills and had more money than I knew what to do with. There weren't even any achievements for finding all the bit of junk.

There was honestly too much content, a problem that Far Cry 3 suffered from, and it is still a ridiculous problem to have. Once I stopped doing the extra stuff I finished off the game in around three hours, reaching a very underwhelming ending, so much so that I must have done something wrong.

When given the option I shot the bad guy. And then the credit rolled. There must be more to it.


A YouTube review proves that shooting Pagan Min was a bad idea. Oh well. When does Blood Dragon 2 come out?

  1. Aw. I liked the ending to FC3. It made everything that came before it feel more important - and made me wish Pagan had shown up throughout the story half as much as Vaas.
