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! Freddie Wong offered his own Far Cry 3 tribute the other week, so of course the Corridor Digital boys would want a crack at it...

Far Cry 3 is a great game with a horrible release date

Far Cry 3 is coming out on December 4 and I think that's a horrible time to release a game, especially something as big as a Far Cry title. The worst part is that it's coming after Black Friday here in America, one of the most important sh...

E3: Far Cry 3 drives me to the brink of sanity/boobs

E3: Kill foreigners with friends in Far Cry 3 co-op
