Well. 50 minutes, anyway.
Far Cry 4 is a game I've been looking forward to since ages ago -- and now, it's finally something I can play. Poorly. Here you go, watch us flounder. Go on, we're a mess.
♪Shangri Feat. La (Everbest remix)♪
Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun.
For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun.
Far Cry's new thing seems to be free flowing painted/tribal tits, nipple slips be damned, and those feature prominently in this video. But if you stick around, you'll see that there is also a little, flaccid penis!
I never l...
Maybe Ubisoft has something else up its sleeve, though
Don't expect a Blood Dragon spin-off for Far Cry 4, says Ubisoft producer Alex Hutchinson.
"No. The answer is no, you won't get another one of those," Hutchinson told IGN Australia. "But hopefully we'll be able to come up with something that surprises you just as much."

A nice rundown of the premise and every enemy
This new Far Cry 4 trailer highlights the entire premise in detail (more than the actual start of the game does), and shows you pretty much every major character, weapon, and item in the game.
If you're already interest...
F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew
Last week, Ubisoft pulled its upcoming games--F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew--from Steam. This allowed me to roll with a headline, "Going hard in the Uplaynt," a play on "going hard in the paint" and ...
Pick one: Ubisoft or Sega
Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid.
We're about a week and a half away from Ubisoft's next big release Far Cry 4. The game is priced at the sta...
Going hard in the Uplay-nt
Ubisoft's biggest three upcoming releases, F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew have been pulled from Steam, the place where a lot of people buy and play their PC games.
PCGamesN got this statement from Ub...
Far Cry 4 is just a fortnight away. Just two more weeks. Fourteen long days. 336 interminable hours. 20,160 minutes. 1,209,600 some-odd seconds. 1,209,599 seconds. 1,209,598...
Are we there yet? No. Quit asking! And stop teasing your sister or I'm turning this car around.
These are the Battles of Kyrat
Far Cry 4 is the latest game to get in on the asymmetric multiplayer craze, something that's seemingly inescapable from in games today. However, this one's a bit more nuanced than the likes of Evolve's "four hunter...
Beware the Honey Badger
Back in 2012, Far Cry 3 turned out to be a surprise hit for Ubisoft. It became the bestselling title of the series, appearing on many game of the year lists, and also created a rather excellent spin-off title. But with the an...
Sadly, the C'caine Tiger has been un-stabbed to near-extinction
Max was poring through some new Far Cry 4 footage and spotted a few things that he didn't quite understand. Here's his top picks of interesting things he can't explain, because this game isn't out yet and we thought you might want to see some of it because this is a videogame website, you clown.
Animals sure are unlucky in Far Cry
Here I was all prepared to say that I didn't feel like I'd be missing much by not pre-ordering Far Cry 4 and then they go and harpoon a bear. It's not fair, damn it. It's just not fair!
Pre-orders also come with three exclusive missions featuring Hurk, who I'm only now learning was a character in Far Cry 3, too (in a DLC pack). Huh. He seems ... annoying.
That harpoon gun, though.
Traditional weapons are dumb, tigers are the future
Far Cry 4 has its share of weapons that look fun to use. Machine guns? Sure, they're tried-and-true and will get the job done. Mortars? Maybe a bit of overkill, but at least you don't have to get dirty. Tigers? Wait, wh...
That's nice of him, considering he doesn't even know his name
Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser.
As it should be
Even when Far Cry 4 was officially nothing more than message-board rumors, I was all about the elephants. It's nice to see Ubisoft give the people want they want, then, by putting out a trailer that's devoted to these animal...
And Bill does his Let's Play voice
Prior to this video being shot, Max may have taken a double dose of the assorted pills that truckers use to drive 36 consecutive hours. I can't be sure. It wasn't my day to keep track of him.
But, the point you should take away from this is how realistic that elephant's ass (probably) looks. With booty physics like that, it's no wonder Far Cry 4 ended up as one of our top games of PAX Prime.
Yuma looks like one tough customer
Far Cry 4 is certainly shaping up to have quite a colorful cast, with the eccentric self-proclaimed king Pagan Min and now his newly-revealed second in command, Yuma.
Yuma is a "deadly tactician" and acts as the general ...
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Although the upcoming Ubisoft FPS is set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, Far Cry 4's directors conducted extensive research on location in Nepal to both research flora and fauna and to interview those who had fou...
Plenty to see, plenty to play
Ubisoft seemingly takes the same approach to all of its PAX showings -- theater presentations of Assassin's Creed, and playable demos of its other upcoming games. PAX Prime 2014 in Seattle next week is no different, except fo...
The Himalayas look nice, too
As someone who tended to stick with the bow as the weapon of choice in Far Cry 3 -- and especially in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon -- I like the look of the mythical Shangri-La in Far Cry 4.
In these levels, you'll fight against ...
'Here’s a palette, a brush, and a canvas. Go wild.'
Think back on Far Cry 3. Reflect on all the memorable moments you had with that game. What sticks out the most? The missions or the unscripted stuff that happened in the open world?
Chances are you primarily remember the unsc...
Go on a wild trip
Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the ga...
Keys to Kyrat
PlayStation gamers will be able to invite their friends for a round of cooperative play in Far Cry 4 even if said friends do not own the game. We've known about this for a while, but more specifics have come out of the PlayS...
Surprise! War's pretty terrible
Part one of the video series chronicling the Far Cry 4 developers' trip to Nepal was strange. Part two was more dangerous than anything. The third and final part is just downright depressing.
Talking with citizens that ...
Try it first at gamescom
Assassin's Creed Rogue may have only been officially announced for an entire day now, but Ubisoft already has plans to let fans try it out in the very near future. If you happen to be at gamescom in Cologne, Germany next...
But hey, at least we got Blood Dragon
Raphael van Lierop, in a recent interview with USGamer, revealed that his original vision of the game would have tied all three entries in the series up to that point together.
As narrative director at Ubisoft Montreal for Fa...
No animal sacrifices this time
As indicated by part one of the video series chronicling the Far Cry 4 developers' trip to the Himalayan region, they seemingly rushed off to watch an animal sacrifice nearly as soon as their plane touched down. Th...
I wanted to call it 'Das Wassup'
Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all have...
