Been pondering and how are the vehicles ?.You obviously don't have the slightly annoying repair thing like in 2.Also is the hang glider pretty easy to get to grips with,it was a bit tricky in 1.The boats as well seem on the video pretty good.

Also is it maybe advisable not to use them a lot anyway.If like me you want to play it stealthily.Obviously that doesn't really count for the hang glider.

I get one ps3 game and now I'm mocked for it? The burdens of the oppressed! Khaaaan!!!

Had insane preordered since announcement for 360, I've said before about how much I love 2, so by default I should disintegrate with joy over 3.

Was only messing Bezza you know that.Good call with the insane edition,same here although not sure what i'm gonna do with the bobblehead,lol.Plus i bet it comes seperate to the rest of it i would have thought.

I'm sure Ed will sort it out when he notices and answers some of the questions.

I quite looking forward to this, only played the first one on PC when it came out. I assume you don't need to have played Far Cry 2?

I'm using the Elder Scrolls as an example here, and thinking it'll just fill you in or neither will be connected at all.

Not mocked enough I'd say! Pezza. :wink:

Would the Pop ups and draw distance issues become less noticible if you were to install the game direct to the HD??

I watched 3 parts of the Far Cry 3 IGN Live and the guy playing said that the main story took him close to 20hrs and he did not touch the side missions or mini games and only did very little treasure hunting. There is a repair tool its a blow touch (you have to buy it and equip it in your inventory) the hang gliders are easy to control much better than FC2. i watched about an hour of it looks amazing and well move than 40hrs to 100% the game they have kept all the good bits from FC2 and binned all the crap lol 8)

Nice one for that.Didn't know about the repair tool but that sounds like it might be better than just having to keep doing the engine like in 2.Also the hang glider was in the first one and was a bit twitchy,it was also pretty tricky to find it and i think it is more accessible in this one.

Also yeah i am glad about some things not returning from 2 but wish they had kept the gun jams.
