If you've been waiting to pick up Far Cry 3, today might be a good day -- it's $34.99 as Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day. The sale is going on for 360, PS3, and PC, and you can opt for the physical or digital version of the PC game, in addition to the PC deluxe edition for $44.99.
It took me quite a while to beat Far Cry 3, but I'm glad I did. I ended up taking a billion detours because of how well the game entices you to explore the island. The completely optional sidequests didn't feel like a chore -- I chose to enjoy them.
Far Cry 3 is truly a phenomenal open world game, and deserves your attention if you're a fan of the genre. Also, Vaas totally reminds me of Tuco Salamanca.
