Overall, I really liked the new Far Cry (of course, it's me). The gameplay is a vast improvement, smooth gunplay and the bases require more tactical play.
Liked the treasure hunt activities, and the supremos were a really cool new addition.

On the downside, I just didn't like the story very much. It was okay, not bad, but Anton is one-dimensional and nothing really develops like with Pagan Mind/Joseph Seed
Some stuff happens at the end, but it doesn't feel poignant because his character doesn't develop along with your actions in the game like in 4 and 5.
The side characters are insanely unmemorable, especially the sub-bosses. The Seed siblings, and some of 4's side-bosses, were pretty noticable. Not in 6. Terrible.
So I'm conflicted. World of Yara is amazing, and I love the gameplay - best in the series. Dani Rojas (female, at least) is well played, and Anton/Diego are acted well.
However, I didn't like the writing at all, story was a big step back, and as the more narrative-heavy Ubisoft series, this was a shame.
Good, not great game that does more right than wrong, but doesn't move the GOTY needle for me.
Always enjoy your game summaries man. Out of interest, what is your GOTY at the moment?
Psychonauts 2, followed by Resident Evil Village and Deathloop. That’s saying a lot, because I loved Village and RE7 and 2 RM were my GOTY both years. Hby?
Cool, I've not played those, though Psychonauts 2 is on my list and will check out Deathloop when it comes to Xbox (I don't have a PS). I'm a bit weird as...
...for whatever reason I don't tend to play 'new' games as they release as I tend to work through my backlog. Doesn't really count but the Outer Wilds expansion is...
...just amazing, building on a masterpiece of a base game, so i'd go with that :-)
The intro to 5 was just crazy and gripping - I still haven't finished 6, I’ve enjoyed it so far though. I love the far cry formula. I agree that the gameplay is top notch
A lot of it is warranted, no denying that. Equally, Immortals Fenyx Rising and Far Cry 6 are two of my favourite games on the new consoles thus far.
I feel Far Cry does the 'Ubisoft formula' best, and there is evolution if you look. Story for 6 is a step down (early stages for me, though) but 6's gameplay is superb.

Did all the side content first, so I'll be concluding with the story. Only done 1 of the 3 main regions.
I'm enjoying it but I miss the "levelling up" aspect where you buy abilities--having to choose between gear upgrades feels limiting.
Absolutely love Far Cry 6!!! Glad you are enjoying it so far bro!
Anyone who needs co-op help, btw, message me and I’ll join you for an FND base either tonight or tomorrow/Saturday
I burnt out on Far Cry (and Ubisoft) long ago, but I'm glad you're enjoying the game :)
I told you this game was going to get patched! It was only a matter of time man.
Of course, Halo Infinite, although I may or may not play to complete. Going to rinse MP either way (duh).
I have 5 or 6 Eliminator wins between launch and a random drop-in a few months ago, so it shouldn’t be too bad. No specific conditions this time.
I think the equivalent of ‘Encore?’ Is back also, although it won’t feel too bad doing that on launch!

I bet fh adds some painful achievements in subsequent dlcs, Fh4 was solid for first two expansions, but everything after blahhh
It says complete a playlist activity in every season , not complete the whole season or whole playlist so I guess it’s not the same as encore
Super easy and fun base list as always.
@SaP RaZzor Min, Meet Max in Forza Horizon 5 is what I'm referring to. Just calls them 'events' rather than 'activities'.
Ah my bad only took a quick look at the list , yeah then it’s it’s ugh , Corona made the perfect opportunity to play 30d straight for me back on fh4 😂
I'm not too bothered because on launch I intended absolutely rinsing FH5, so I would be on daily anyway. Update 14 was annoying because I was logging on JUST for Encore?
I know that you love Remedy so definitely give Alan Wake a go.
BRUH there is freaking PEPPA PIG coming out this month?? How is it a pretty quiet one????
Doesn’t seem to make a difference internal or external.
Error code is 0x87e00005 and it always stops at the same % for 2-3 games. Concerned.

3 hard resets late and it seems go be downloading now. Speeds are super jumpy but better than nothing.
Spoke too early, issues still persisting.
Is this easy and can be boosted?
Insanely easy, just use second controller. Kind of expecting tons of DLC achievements because the list was so easy.
That’s a problem for future James, though!
Hot sticky mess of white stuff
(Also need to do Echoes of the Eye for Outer Wilds, a game I absolutely adore - needs to understand the achievement reqs though).
May not be able to do this until after Far Cry 6 (still have to PS5 games to get through as well), but my god I love Outer Wilds. Excited for this.
Maybe EA will finally patch the broken achievements for Madden NFL .. who knows?
They will fix Madden 22. Patience man.
Might be my favourite LiS, up there with 1. Definitely my favourite cast of characters, either way.
Deck Nine did a brilliant job with this; and I hope they keep this over Dontnod. Nice story told in a great setting.

Story didn’t try too hard. It just did it’s thing without weird set pieces, had a decent twist, and just felt satisfying to me.
Better episode length; and I personally think releasing it in one (or consecutive weeks, like Tell Me Why) is the way these games should be.
Overall, Deck Nine learned from all of Dontnods failings. For me, 1/TC (practically tied) > Before the Storm >>>>>> 2.
