His hair is made of the sky


Happy accident

If glitches had sequels, this would be the long-awaited follow-up to Mafia II's "his hair is made of little faces" bug. The accompanying line of dialogue -- "I don't give a fuck" -- makes it even better. How did this happen? ... read

Now move on, already
With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more h... read feature

Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis


Didn't think that was possible
Feb 26
If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h... read

Far Cry 4 DLC wants you dead... permanently


Naked fights to the death

Far Cry 4 was a pretty restrained game by comparison to Far Cry 3. Sure you could command an elephant into battle, but the game's hero Ajay Ghale never got himself into enough truly bizarre situations. Thankfully, there's a n... read

I like Far Cry 4's map editor because it leads to goat butt stabbing videos

Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access

Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ... read

Far Cry 4 reviewed photo
♪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. read feature

Ubisoft: Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon 2 isn't happening


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." Pubcast Happy Hour 10: Far Cry 4 Special [IGN via Game Informer] read
