Don't play poker or go drinking with Far Cry 3's Vaas

Because if you do, you'll have a sweet barroom firefight in your mind. Actually, that doesn't sound all too bad!

This has been completely confirmed today by a set of screens coming out of gamescom that show off leaves, sand, and water. Yup… that's a tropical island. Far Cry 3 is set for a release in 2012, so prepare for malaria accordingly.
