Soapbox: Why God of War Will Scratch Your Zelda Itch

Soapbox: Why God of War Will Scratch Your Zelda Itch

Of all the games I expected God of War to remind me of, The Legend of Zelda was probably right at the very bottom of my list. I mean, how could the hallmarks of Nintendo’s flagship adventure franchise possibly be present in Kratos’ latest? This is a game about a paternal relationship, like The Last of Us. It has a cinematic third-person camera, like Uncharted. Heck, there are even thick, visually luxurious forests, like every Sony game ever according to one particularly short-sighted meme.

But no, the new God of War reminds me of Zelda – and old-school, Ocarina of Time-era Zelda at that. One of my takeaways while playing the title is that it’s got a very Nintendo-esque design philosophy to it. The ol’ Big N is brilliant at constantly introducing new systems and mechanics throughout the course of its titles, only to exchange them for something new and then reinvent them later on. God of War does that, perhaps not to the highs of, say, a Twilight Princess, but it’s there.

Fans Have Mixed Feelings About ‘Far Cry 5’

Fans Have Mixed Feelings About ‘Far Cry 5’

At the center of the “Far Cry 5” storyline is a Montana-based cult called Eden’s Gate. In addition, the game boasts some impressive graphics, as well interesting, amusing and disturbing characters.

Of course, the most disturbing character in the game is Joseph Seed, the cult’s founder and leader. Seed displays an intense and nearly-hypnotic gaze, and his yellow-tinted glasses really amp up the creep factor.

From the beginning, the player can go anywhere in the expansive Montana wilderness. There are day and night cycles and dream-like fantastical sequences as well. Fans know the “Far Cry” franchise for its dreamy ambiance, and in “Far Cry 5,” the cult’s drug of choice, bliss, brings on the hallucinatory sequences.

The general plot of the game is both creative and interesting: sent in as part of a team of U.S. marshals to apprehend Father Seed, the player becomes part of a resistance to overthrow the cult.

Without a doubt, the opening sequences are the high points of the game. In fact, the beginning narrative introduces a great villain, focuses on the timeless premise to save the specific part of America from a cult bent on destruction and contains the kind of seat-of-your-pants action that players expect from a good video game.

Sorry Oney, I was just alerted about an “Ed Edd and Eddy” full episode live stream, I must click away.

Idk who the other person is with oney but people cant seem to pick and choose whether they are a boy or a girl so can someone fill me in? Lol

Far Cry 5 lets the imagination run wild against enemies and the elements

Far Cry 5 lets the imagination run wild against enemies and the elements

There’s a heavily armoured and armed convoy of trucks slowly making its way through rural Montana, and I have to stop it.

There are various ways I could try to accomplish my mission, from the methodical to the chaotic, and everything in-between. I opt for the theatrical.

It just so happens that I recently unlocked a perk that allows me to use a wingsuit when falling from great heights, and a little earlier I found a helicopter conveniently parked up outside an abandoned farmhouse.

Since I’m expecting heavy resistance, I decide to call in one of the specialist companions who can be unlocked as you explore Far Cry 5’s story and landscape. She’s a good shot with a hunting bow, which is sure to come in handy – even if our expected prey will be human.

So, off we go, my companion in the back seat, as I pilot the chopper high above the lush landscape. A few kilometres later and I see the convoy driving along a dirt road. I do what any 1980s film star would and jump out of the helicopter with two high-calibre weapons, a variety of explosives and throwing knives strapped to my back.

Flying around with the wingsuit is a lot of fun, but I don’t have too much time to appreciate the landscape before it’s time to deploy my parachute for a dramatic, barely survivable landing, right in front of the oblivious convoy.

A journey into an American abyss: Far Cry 5

A journey into an American abyss: Far Cry 5

Postcard-perfect scenery with lots of explosions: that might be the best way to describe the Far Cry series from Ubisoft. Previous editions have been set in the jungles of Central Africa, in the Himalayas and on Caribbean Islands.

The latest version of the first-person shooter, Far Cry 5, takes place in the US state of Montana. The setting is a beautiful, but dangerous wilderness full of voracious predators and gun-toting cult members.

The game’s protagonist is a US Marshal whose goal is to arrest Joseph Eden, the charismatic leader of an apocalyptic cult. The arrest attempt goes badly awry and the player soon finds himself stranded in enemy territory without reinforcements or contact with the outside world.

Far Cry 5 is quite topical with themes such as blind fanaticism, gun lovers and the chasm between the US coasts and its hinterland, but in the end political issues are really only background noise in a game that largely follows the format set by its predecessors.

The essence of the game is, like its predecessors, an open world where the first-person player has to shoot, drive, fly, climb and sneak around while liberating villages and gathering new weapons.

Far Cry 5 will support two-player co-op across the full campaign

Far Cry 5 will support two-player co-op across the full campaign

A listing for Far Cry 5 that’s popped up on Steam has revealed that it will support two-player co-op action against cult leader Joseph Seed and his siblings, the Heralds. And unlike Far Cry 4, where co-operative play was limited to side quests, Ubisoft said the two-player action in Montana will be available across the entire campaign.

Some of what’s in the listing we already know, such as the ability to recruit Guns (people) and Fangs (animals) to your cause, and it also confirms that along with tractors (which you better be able to play chicken with), the vehicles in the game will include “iconic muscle cars, ATV’s, planes and a lot more.” And while the promise of “a world that hits back” doesn’t necessarily mean anything, it is intriguing, if only because the bad guys in previous Far Cry games have been oddly happy to let me run roughshod over them without really trying to do anything about it. “Wreak havoc on the cult and its members,” it says, “but beware of the wrath of Joseph Seed and his followers.”

The listing also indicates that Far Cry 5 will be available in three different editions: Your basic dude-shooting version, which will sell for $60/£45/€60; the Deluxe Edition, which comes with the Big Game Hunter pack, the Ace Pilot pack, the Explosive pack, the Chaos pack, and the AR-C assault rifle and .44 Magnum pistol with unique skins, for $70/£55/€70; and the gold edition, with all of the above plus the season pass, which carries a $90/£75/€90 price tag.

Far Cry 2 details vs Far Cry 5

Far Cry 2 details vs Far Cry 5

How FC2 holds up 10 years later. FC5 has its own attention to details that FC2 doesn’t have, this comparison doesn’t mean FC5 has nothing to show. Both games run under a different version of the Dunia engine (Ubisoft-modified CryEngine).

Gamers are getting screwed. FC5 isn’t just inferior to its 10 YEAR OLD predecessor, it costs $100 when you include the DLC. Practically a third of the content is locked behind a $40 pay wall! FC5 clearly sucks. Half of the weapons and armor in AC Origins can only be bought with CASH. Ubi is fucking us hard, and you’re a sucker if you disagree.

.

And the first time my character had died, and I assumed it was a game over, only to be revived by an NPC character, or follower, just absolutely BLEW me away! The animations that played out, how they tossed you over their backs and carried you out of area to a safe spot to make sure you were okay, was just incredible. Not to mention that there was just never any mention of it before hand, just made it that much more special.

GOD OF WAR 4 “Behind the Myths” Trailer (2018) PS4

As someone who just recently has a son, I could not be more excited for this game. When he discussed trying to be “a better person” to become “more patient”… he’s absolutely right. It’ll hit you like a ton of bricks. Nothing gives you a stronger calling than when you have your first born.

I get what they are doing, but at the same time they are doing it wrong. It seems like it is going to be a shitty version of Last of Us. I would of liked it better if it was more of a story about Kratos becoming Odin and his son becoming Thor.

Boy, Read This: The Internet Pokes Fun At Kratos In God of War

For such a grim, serious and violent game, God of War sure is making people on the internet laugh.

God of War is a pleasant surprise. Playing as Kratos, the curmudgeonly dad and his precious son Atreus is both narratively satisfying and has interesting gameplay. It’s also given rise to one of my favorite current internet jokes. Please just click play on this video from YouTuber The Goose.

You see, Kratos has a habit of calling his son “boy.” A lot. This has not escaped the internet’s notice.
