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

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 hard place, but ...

Visit the steep mountains of Far Cry 4 at a steep discount

Plane tickets are expensive. If you want to go check out the Himalayas, you're looking at several thousand dollars. "In this economy?!," Steven might scoff. A more affordable route to world tourism is through Ubisoft's rendition in Far Cry ...

Far Cry 4 almost made me vomit at one point

Far Cry 4 is a lot of fun, but it can leave you feeling pretty sick to your stomach at times. I distinctly remember happening on a family of monkeys in the Himalayan foothills. Pulling out my camera, I marveled at their cherubic faces...

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 a day when he w...

Hey, it's the first hour of Far Cry 4!

Far Cry 4 is a game I've been looking forward to since ages ago -- and now, it's finally something I can play. Poorly. Here you go, watch us flounder. Go on, we're a mess.

Review: Far Cry 4

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 sweet. For some that wasn't ...

Far Cry 4 has more naked boobs, also a lil dick!

Far Cry's new thing seems to be free flowing painted/tribal tits, nipple slips be damned, and those feature prominently in this video. But if you stick around, you'll see that there is also a little, flaccid penis! I never let a dick get b...

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

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 tha...

Far Cry 4 features a more dynamic and vibrant open world

Back in 2012, Far Cry 3 turned out to be a surprise hit for Ubisoft. It became the bestselling title of the series, appearing on many game of the year lists, and also created a rather excellent spin-off title. But with the announcement of F...

This is what happens when you harpoon a bear in Far Cry 4

Here I was all prepared to say that I didn't feel like I'd be missing much by not pre-ordering Far Cry 4 and then they go and harpoon a bear. It's not fair, damn it. It's just not fair! Pre-orders also come with three exclusive missions fe...

Tigers are the most badass weapon in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 has its share of weapons that look fun to use. Machine guns? Sure, they're tried-and-true and will get the job done. Mortars? Maybe a bit of overkill, but at least you don't have to get dirty. Tigers? Wait, what!? This new t...

This Far Cry 4 trailer is all about the elephants

Even when Far Cry 4 was officially nothing more than message-board rumors, I was all about the elephants. It's nice to see Ubisoft give the people want they want, then, by putting out a trailer that's devoted to these animals (minus the co...

You aren't at PAX? Let Max Scoville give you the tour

PAX Prime 2014 is winding down, but that doesn't mean those of us at home can't pretend like we are there, stalking Max Scoville as he roams the show floor. I was going to give a detailed play-by-play of the video here, but I have decided ...

Far Cry 4's take on Shangri-La sure is stunning

As someone who tended to stick with the bow as the weapon of choice in Far Cry 3 -- and especially in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon -- I like the look of the mythical Shangri-La in Far Cry 4. In these levels, you'll fight against strange masked ...

How Far Cry 4 plans on making memorable missions

Think back on Far Cry 3. Reflect on all the memorable moments you had with that game. What sticks out the most? The missions or the unscripted stuff that happened in the open world? Chances are you primarily remember the unscripted stuff, m...

Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the game.  Scatt...

Ubisoft is sending someone to Mt. Everest to play Far Cry 4

I want to play Far Cry 4 and, yeah, scaling a mountain like Everest would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip -- but playing Far Cry 4 *on* Mt. Everest? Not for me, sadly. That said, someone out there -- the one lucky person chosen by Ubisoft for...
