Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon tops PSN charts in US, UK

Like Sergeant Rex Power Colt in a helicopter, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon soared above the rest of the competition on PlayStation Network last month, raining down neon-tinted death upon its enemies from both sides of the Atlantic...

Far Cry 3's map editor updated with Blood Dragon content

Mark IV style mutha f*ckas! Far Cry 3's map editor was just updated to include Blood Dragon's neon packed designs. This is just for the buildings and stuff, and doesn't include the creatures like the actual Blood Dragons. The...

Ubisoft had a great year, up $83.3 million

A lot of companies have been releasing their financial figures lately, but it doesn't seem as if any can hold a candle to Ubisoft's performance. While most had a non-remarkable or down year in fiscal 2013, Ubisoft reported pr...

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon: The Movie

It's another Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon live-action parody, and it's just as amazing and cheesy as the other one. Everything about this is wonderful. "I'm just spinning my web, baby." I really hope the potential sequel has flying cyber shark missiles now. [Via Sucker Punch]

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon may get a sequel

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon went from an April Fools joke, to sort-of-kind-of a thing, to a real release. It pretty much came out of nowhere and wowed gamers of all shapes and sizes, which naturally leads to the burning question ...

There is Durango grease in the rumor mill

In this discussion from the Dtoid news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Brett Zeidler to bandy about some of the latest rumors surrounding the next Xbox console. Plus talk on alternative post-launch content in the form of games such as Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, which we think is a super-cool approach.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Achievement and Trophy Guide photo
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Achievement and Trophy Guide
by Chris Carter

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon came completely out of left field and blindsided us all. Jim and I have been powering through the massive wave of 80s and 90s nostalgia this past week, and to help you out, I've written up an Achievement/Trophy guide to help you conquer everything the evil Colonel Sloane will throw at you.

If you remember a time when the VHS tape was king, one-liners were the only way to talk, and Arnold was the undisputed action hero champion, then by god it's time to strap yourselves in for a blast from the past.

Review: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
by Jim Sterling

You are Rex Colt. Part man, part machine, all American. As a Mark IV cyborg on the tail of the maniacal Colonel Sloane, your mission is to destroy the Cyber Soldiers, rip out their Cyber Hearts, avoid Cyber Sharks and stop a man from becoming a Cyber God. 

It would be redundant at this point to mention Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a tribute to everything gloriously stupid about 1980s entertainment, wouldn't it?

I don't know why Ubisoft decided to take this sudden and jarring direction, but I'm glad it did.

New releases: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is undeniably real photo
New releases: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is undeniably real
by Fraser Brown

From April fools prank to launch in a month, that's got to be some kind of record. Yes, folks, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is almost upon us, and it looks flipping wonderful. Cyber-soldiers, '80s cheese, and lots of neon -- I can't wait to get my mitts on it. Blood Dragon isn't the only thing launching this week, though, but it might be what burns the brightest. 

Soul Sacrifice is a thing that people seem to be excited about, but not having a Vita, I'm oblivious; Zeno Clash II drops, and it's bloody weird; Strike Suit Zero gets a hectic spin-off in the form of Strike Suit Infinity; Deadly Premonition gets a new edition and spreads to PS3; and a bunch of other things release this week.

Anything titillating you?

Ubisoft deserves praise for its approach to Blood Dragon photo
Ubisoft deserves praise for its approach to Blood Dragon
by Brett Makedonski

All too often, we get caught up in a whirlwind of negativity, focusing on bad business decisions and corporate missteps. It's easy to give our attention to the practices that directly hurt us and that need to change. Without our voices, we have nothing. For instance, it's important to lay out exactly why EA has such an unsavory reputation. But, it's also important to give credit where credit is due.

Ubisoft is due some credit. The company's approach to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is the exact opposite of everything that we've come to expect from the gaming industry in the last five (or so) years. By breaking conventions, Ubisoft has positioned Blood Dragon to be one of the most refreshing experiences in recent memory -- a shining neon beacon arising from a sea of gun-metal grey.

A trek through Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

What is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon? This is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. We've seen how the absurd, brightly-lit spin-off begins, and we know it's going for in terms of story -- "[It's] really stupid, and that's okay" -- but this w...

The Far Cry and Deus Ex voice actors are best of friends

Elias Toufexis and Michael Mando, the voice actors for Deus Ex: Human Revolution's Adam Jensen, and Far Cry 3's Vaas, sit down with Michael Mando Films to talk about their roles as videogame voice actors. The duo talk about their work, and then hug each other all over the floor like the bestest of friends that they are. Awwwwwww.
