The Far Cry 2 demo was pretty amazing. What they could achieve on the 360 was damn impressive.
The level editor was incredible, too.
But one thing kinda stuck in my mind… They have realistic terrain, wind and an unbelievable fire simulator, essentially they have built a digital likeness of Africa… all so I can drive across the savanna to shoot some guys?
I mean, it looks to be a fun game, I just wonder if such fantastic environments couldn’t have some really new gameplay in there… they do have lots of innovative touches, but the main gameplay idea seems a lot like 1000 other games.
I took a while perusing the prizes, and finally settled on the PS3 game “Uncharted” and a few graphic novels.
Right now I’m taking a little break in the hotel room, in a bit I think I might go watch a presentation of Prince of Persia and Far Cry 2.
Moses and I entered a Zombies!!! tournament – I won first place, Moses won third.
First place – $125 in PAX merchendise. Sweet!
I’m in the PAX line room… Pretty well organized so far. Games abound.
Except, due to inflation, it’s actually a $1.50 store. What ever happened to the Five and Dime? 😉
Coffee-flavored candy, brown sugar candy with honey center, chocolate-filled vanilla Oreos, and more.
Landed in WA!
Flight was uneventful, though the plane was like an *oven* most of the flight. Don’t they have A/C?
I’m on the plane to Seattle, I haven’t slept in over 24 hours, and I just took a percoset. Whee!
I always forget what a dump JFK airport is until I’m here again.
At least the annoucement speakers aren’t horribly overdriven in this part of the airport – the gate I was at last time I was here was *horrible*.
The delay in takeoff was actually a blessing in disguise, now I don’t have to hang out in JFK as long… kind of a funky smell in the air here.
I’m on the ground in Liberty City. Er, New York City, that is…
Now I just have 3 hours till my flight to Seattle leaves.
