THE DAY HAS ARRIVED!! Tonight at 9pm (here on the west coast) I will finally be able to pick up Far Cry 5 and Boomer and I will meet at last!
I mean, just look at him. He’s clearly a good boy. Or a good boi. Whichever you prefer.
I like both.
Looks like Ubisoft prefers “good boy.”
As predicted, I got nothing accomplished game-wise over the last week. A weird set of situations on Saturday even derailed my regularly scheduled Borderlands 2. So, really, I believe I played nothing at all other than a bit of Overwatch late Saturday night.
All I can think about is Far Cry 5. All I want to do is meet Boomer. I also want to meet Cheeseburger, the bear, but Boomer’s where it’s at for me. We are going to wander the lands of Hope County, Montana and bring justice to the land.
On Friday last week, my copies of Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom and A Way Out both arrived, and I played absolutely zero of both. Again, my attention span is all about Far Cry 5. And I had allotted some possibility that I’d be able to play A Way Out over the weekend.
Ha. HA. AHHHAAAHHAHHAAAA.
Yeah. That was never going to happen, was it?
Since tonight’s the night, I am in full spaz mode. I apologize in advance because I’m pretty sure (read: certain) that everything I write this week will be Far Cry-related. Even whatever I write on Thursday. Well, maybe I can come up with something non-Far Cry for Thursday but please don’t count on it. I’ve been looking forward to this game in a BIG way since it was announced and as the time draws near, the excitement is becoming unbearable.
CHEESEBURGER THE BEAR.
I’m honestly trying to focus, but my own hype is muffling a lot of other thoughts. I’m so excited to see how the game functions without radio towers and the minimap. I’m excited to see how companions figure in to this entry. In Primal they almost made sense, but in a modern day Far Cry, I’m curious to see how they fare. I’m excited to see how the monetary system works (I’ve heard it’s harder to make money in this entry), and I’m incredibly glad hunting is no longer required to upgrade your items. The skill trees look interesting and useful, and I’m pretty much excited and interested in every change I’ve heard about.
I’m also super looking forward to co-op play. Yes, it’s disappointing that progress won’t carry over to the person who joins the other person’s game, but I’m hopeful that personal progression will (e.g.: unlocked skills). I already told my co-op partner that I will play during the day in my own game, then join him in his in the evenings when he can play.
Oh! I watched a video where Boomer’s thoughts are subtitled (I am a sucker for subtitled creature videos), and in it he refers to guns as “loud sticks.” He says he will “find the bad ones for you” (e.g.: he tags the bad guys), and asks you to please pet him sometimes because “We’re family now!”
How freaking adorable is that?!
Boomer: I’m ready to be your family. Let’s do this! Let’s get those bad guys!
With that I ask: what will you be playing this week?
If you need me, I’ll be in Hope County with Boomer. And Cheeseburger.
