Far Cry 5... only $8.99

Post by bio » Tue Jul 14, 2020 9:51 am

If you've been thinking, I want to play a killer AAA game, but I'm also a cheap bastard, then oh boy... do I have news for you! Far Cry 5 is on sale on Steam for a whopping $8.99+tax until July 20th (it's normally $59.99).

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!

The sale is, of course, for the vanilla version of the game. If you want a few extras (a few extra weapons, missions, and side characters), you'll have to pay a few dollars more, but it's still crazy cheap!

I'm sure this is because they just announced Far Cry 6 (which looks OMFG THE AWESOME!!!!). As always... I'll be buying this for a stupid price the day it comes out. It's an amazing franchise and the bad guy this time around is Giancarlo Esposito (aka, Gus from Breaking Bad and Moff Gideon from The Mandalorian). Badass!!! It takes place in what on a Latin American island that's totally not Cuba (hehe) this time, and in addition to the typical jungle stuff, there will be urban combat this time. Joygasm!!

I've never gotten into Far Cry, not sure why. And I don't have a PC/Laptop that is really gaming worthy. I game on my Xbox. I normally have trouble getting in any real gaming time, what with competing with the kid, and several of my games not really something he should be playing yet.
So I recently bought an Xbox One X for my bedroom so I get more time to play.
That does sound like a fun series though. May have to check it out if/when it get some deals on Xbox. They run various deals each month.
Last month I picked up NHL20 (surprisingly fun), Crackdown 3 (I played the first 2 and loved them), and Grand Theft Auto 5. Added to my Assassin's Creed games, and Fallen Jedi which I haven't finished yet, not sure I can take up another game.

But I did see that Gus Fring is the new bad guy for this, so that definitely peeks my interest.

Far Cry does drag on a big and become repetitive but 5 was pretty good for the most part. The Character cut screens were amazingly done.

Everybody online says 4 was the best one, but they're wrong. 5 totally is. 3 had the best villain though! Vaas was so well done. Just incredible.

Well, well, I just checked and guess what game is available on Xbox for only 8.99? That's right, Far Cry 5. :D
So, opinion please... do I get the Standard Edition for $8.99, or the Far Cry® 5 + Far Cry® New Dawn Deluxe Edition Bundle for $19.99?

Yes, I know, but lack of time and funds has put me in a place where I don't build my own PCs anymore, and finding a stock one that meets my needs is tough. The Xbox is just "easier", and I know that too is SACRILEGE!

Definately get the bundle for $19.99

Far Cry 5 New Dawn takes place 20 years later (or something like that), and fills in the holes. It's also crazy fun! While shorter than Far Cry 5, new dawn has features that 5 doesn't. The Deluxe pack also comes with a bunch of weapons and such that basic doesn't.
