You forgot to say your stupid 'Fuck yeah'
Just finished the game Wish Vaas didn't die so early on, he was by far the best character. Also starting from when you get to the second island it kinda got annoying for me cause of the heavys, couldn't stick to my whole sniping them off one by one with a silencer etc
Ordered the game today, but now I'm wondering if my computer is able to handle it.
What settings I should use and such would be nice.
It's in Finnish, but here's my dxdiag.

Oh man, this game was an absolute bitch to get running. Had the issues where I was getting like 5-10 fps on the title screen, then the game would crash randomly and I think I managed to bug the very first sequence. The audio and game got out of sync, so the guards were already patrolling before I could stealth past them. Very weird issue.
But I changed to direct x 9, and that really seemed to fix all the issues. So far i've been having a blast with the game, but it was a pain to get running. Wish it was optimized a bit better, but oh well works now.
Anyone else find themselves rooting for Vaas? He's the only character in the game I actually like. I just can't bring myself to have any sympathy for "spoiled American college students get introduction to real world." Story-wise I think this may be the worst Far Cry yet. Really hope we get an xpac or something that does not expand on this story. Just have the protagonist be a merc that gets screwed over or something.
Yeah, Vaas is an amazing character. I found the story really good uptil vaas dies then i started to lose interest from then on.
Yeah, an expansion set up as prequel to Far Cry 3 in which you would be playing as a mercenary/pirate who's on Vaas's side would be just too awesome. It's story would be about how the pirates at first got to the island, I don't think it's explained too well in the game, although I haven't finished it yet.

I was severly disappointed how indestructible FC3 is compared to FC2. In 2 grass and trees used to actually get burned down, I could destroy quite a few of different plant types, and shoot branches off the trees, here grass still burns, but unrealistic, can only shoot (can't even chomp with cleaver) leaves off only one kind of plant, most plants don't even react to you touching them and those that do bend in a kinda weird way. And I'm talking only about PC version here with all possible settings put on max! Looks really as a downgrade compared to second game, which used to amaze me with it's realism. Just bought xbox recently out of boredom, and in first level of Halo-3 I was amazed at how realistic all plants reacted to me and other characters. Even water in Halo-3 looks much better than in FC3, and it only has like 1 level of it, compared to a gigantic world of FC3...

"Your people are despicable cowards, orc, you're nothing more than rabbid dogs! And you will be put down!"
Not sure if you guys have seen this before.
Real life Vaas! torturing the actor from Kick-Ass.
So, finished it.
Crafting? Was there any besides lootbag and gun holsters? not needed at all. did it for the fun, but a collosal waste of time.
Outposts? Either they have supersenses and immediatly know where you are. Or you can walk straight towards the alarm without them noticing.
Radiotowers? The difficult platforming people were moaning about, where?
8/10 because of vaas and the gunplay. But it really needs to be longer.
Vaas is one of those characters that comes along every few years in games/films, and just does such an astounding performance that you never forget him, when I think farcry 3, I think Vaas. He pretty much steals the entire show story wise.
Still loving the game. I'm already addicted to it, but I barely have the time to play it trough. Taking my time capturing bases/radio towers, crafting stuff, discovering relics/letters and stuff. I'm hardly progressing the main storyline
My main gripe with this game is I hate the characters I am trying to save, I would rather watch them die... They are the type of people I hate lol
I'm finding the game rather repetitive as well, so I have grown bored of it for the mean time, I will complete it at one point because it is still a great game.
I'm really enjoying the game. I love that I can kill sharks by running them over with a jet ski.
I've noticed the outposts are becoming alot harder to liberate without being detected now that I am on the second island, my previous tactic of bow spam is becoming obsolete with all the heavys roaming around, getting up close and personal to take them out can be a pain.
