  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    I think it's something in between.
    Something far away and unexpected.

    Theres one thing Ubi does extremely well and thats creating really nice good looking and detailed open worlds. FC6 continues this along with their other masterpiece Ghost Recon Wildlands (one of gamings best open worlds) in addition to AC Origins & Odyssey.

    The problem (in FC6) is they then attach silly characters, a sketchy game mechanic, poor AI programming & excessive super hero powers for the character which then spoils it all.

    But where does the name Far Cry comes from?

    This question is as old as the first game. This has been asked for the last 18 years. So here's a little history lesson:

    The original Far Cry is developed by Crytek, a video game company founded by the Yerli brothers. One of them, who goes by the name Cevat Yerli, uses his initials as a brand. Crytek made the CryEngine for Far Cry. The title is used in the plot as 'Project Far Cry'. Once Ubisoft acquired the rights for Far Cry in 2006, Crytek moved on to CryEngine 2 and made the spiritual successor to Far Cry called Crysis in 2007. So Ubisoft continued the story of Far Cry Instincts and made the sequel Far Cry Instincts Evolution, the Xbox 360 enhanced version (In modern terminology, it would be a remaster or definitive edition) called Far Cry Instincts Predator and made a Wii port Far Cry Vengeance. By the time Ubisoft moved on to make Dunia Engine and made Far Cry 2 in 2008, the title 'Far Cry' loses all of its meaning. Based on what Far Cry 1 had already established in 2004, Far Cry has always been a first person shooter set in exotic locations. They brought a lot of elements from Far Cry games released in 2005 and 2006 to Far Cry 2, and they experimented on the open world format for the first time.

    Why is Far Cry still called Far Cry since it's no longer made by Crytek? Well, Ubisoft owns the license and they can do whatever they want with it. Ubisoft conducted a poll about Far Cry 1 and the protagonist Jack Carver in 2006. The people who answered didn't really like Jack Carver or trigen enemies. So for the first time you can select your silent protagonist in Far Cry 2 and you only have human enemies. The fact that we now have different protagonists for every Far Cry game starting from 2008, including the exotic setting out in the wilderness became a staple in the series.

    A lot of people tried to answer this question for the last 14 years, and most of them get it wrong. When anyone thinks of Far Cry these days, we don't think of it as a military shooter. It's typically about an individual who somehow ends up in a violent conflict they're not really a part of and usually has nothing to do with it. Jack Carver is ex military who is employed by a reporter and then gets ambushed by mercenaries after her departure. The Far Cry 2 protagonist is just a mercenary who is meant to kill the Jackal, but he ends up in a civil war instead. Jason Brody is a tourist who ended up in a war in Rook Islands. Ajay Ghale traveled to Kyrat to fulfill his mother's dying wish, but he becomes caught in a civil war. The Deputy is sent to arrest The Father, but ends up leading the resistance. Now we have Dani Rojas who wants to go to America, but she ends up helping Libertad wage their war against El Presidente.

    The way Ubisoft defines Far Cry, it's about someone who typically doesn't want to fight ends up fighting anyways in an exotic open wilderness with a charismatic villain they have to deal with. The original meaning of Far Cry is the fact it's made by game developers who are obsessed with the word 'cry' and has a habit of putting that word everywhere.

    I just swapped out my GTX 1080 with a MSI 3080 Gaming Trio Z 12G GPU. Paired with my i5-8600K @ 5.2 Ghz I am averaging 85FPS in the benchmark at 3440x1440 with everything on Ultra, all shadows on and HD textures installed. It is unbelievably beautiful. I haven't played in awhile and hadn't gotten very far so I am going to just start over and enjoy the eye candy.
