Oh my god, just LOL @ the meltdowns in this thread. Right now Western Europe and America can't go a few months without innocent people dying to Muslim immigrants and their children, and a bunch of wealthy software developers who most likely live in an upper middle class non-"diverse" neighborhood decide to make a game (or at least an ad for a game) that explicitly seeks to negatively portray white Americans, Christianity, men, etc.?!?!?!?

Some of the people in this thread may not want to admit this, but it isn't right wing media that is forcing young men to reevaluate the dominant paradigm, its media like this. This is not topical, interesting, daring, or any of the adjectives associated with artistic vision. It is safe, tone deaf, and most likely motivated by the same self loathing that informs much of our politics. A bunch of little girls were just blown to pieces by a Muslim in Manchester and some faceless multinational corporation decides it is incumbent to remind everyone that whites are evil too. How can you not expect some type of backlash?

This ad is crudely produced corporate propaganda made by rich whites and diversity hires who represent a bankrupt industry.

This thread is a perfect example of it. Good god you're a daft one. What would be more impressive? Give me a single example where you ever actually support a conservative point of view socially or financially. I sincerely doubt you can.

I've stated on at least one occasion that I'm staunchly anti-abortiom. I'm pro-gun ownership. I'm anti-big government. I'm for strict control and regulation of welfare programs. I'm very much in support of strict immigration laws.

I live in Maine, one of the most liberal states when it comes to government programs. I'm one of the folks who voted for LePage - despite his dumbass boorishness - because he's actually fiscally responsible and is trying to save the state's economy. I regret my decision every other day, but the last thing we needed was another Democrat and their ridiculous spending habits. I miss Angus King.

I don't fit neatly into your categories.

Well then, I apologize for pegging you as a progressive. It seems instead you're just an argumentative contrarian.

Several trailers and CG cutscenes released this morning and it looks derivative in every way. I enjoyed Blood Dragon and Primal because they took that formula to a place we haven't seen before. Primal was especially fun for me since they removed the vehicles and the whole environment feels so much more dangerous because of it.

Far Cry gameplay is pretty much the same throughout the series after 2 and you know what you're going to get with the next one. The setting is what keeps me playing and I feel like this is a big step backwards. The old west or futuristic stuff or even post apocalyptic would have been so much cooler.

Argumentative, certainly. Contrarian, not so much. My thoughts and beliefs just happen to fall on both sides if the fence.

Of course you will; it's contrary to your preconceived notions. Of course you'll think I'm contrarian!

Either way you're still a fucking tool. At the least your not anti 2nd amendment. I suppose you have that going for you.

When in doubt, just call 'em names.

Stay classy, Spectral.

Same. Looks like a decent game, but I'm still waiting for Far Cry Primal to go down to $20 before I pick it up.

I worked at Ubisoft Montreal too. The last summer BBQ i went to they showed a trailer for this and I remember thinking. "Oh man...UBisoft is really tempting fate with this one. They thought the shit storm about no playable female characters in Assassins Creed was bad...this is going to be worse". And now I'm back in the states and living in a post Trump nightmare hell scape and sure enough the gun nuts and bible thumpers did not disappoint. They are even saltier about it than i thought they'd be. I also love how all these guys in this image just look like Mile End hipsters. Having grown up in Rural Idaho, I can tell you that intermountain christian fundamentalist 2nd amendment bros are not this well groomed.

The only "shitstorm" will be if they release a terrible and utterly broken game that becomes little more than another meme generator like Assassin's Creed Unity and Mass Effect Andromeda. If the game is great than any perceived social commentary will be forgotten by all except the most dedicated anonymous internet babies and pretend video game journalists who make their living on attention.

There is a lot of fake outrage for this game. All the videogame sjw bloggers are talking about those made up petitions to kill the game. It's very reminiscent of the gamergate "gamers are dead" days.
