There aren't a lot of Jews in video games. This is something I've always found interesting—considering the disproportionate number of Jews in the world of film and television—but not particularly unusual. Jews make up less than 0.2% of the world's population, so it only makes sense that we'd be in less than 0.2% of…
Hey Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon fans! Ubisoft has patched the game with the ability to reset conquered garrisons, so the spinning laser blade fun never has to end. Ever. Amen.
There weren't any official Blood Dragon action figures. Shame. Ah well. At least there's this unofficial one, of the game's star Rex Colt, which is probably better than anything we'd have officially got anyways.
The first thing that immediately stood out to me when I initially previewed Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon wasn't the neon, it wasn't the hark back to the ridiculousness of the 80's, it wasn't even the blood dragons themselves. That's because I didn't get to see much of any of that before being hit with a gay, possibly…
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, came out last week. If you played it, you may notice that its main character, Rex "Power" Colt, is an unstoppable, one-liner army.
If Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is the encapsulation of c-grade 1980's sci-fi and action figures, this mock trailer for a Blood Dragon movie is the encapsulation of Blood Dragon.
A month ago we got the 3D re-release of Jurassic Park, and a few weeks later we got Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon featuring dinosaurs of all kinds shining under neon lights. This happy coincidence provides us with an opportunity to gather some of the most amazing video games that have dinosaurs stomping around inside them.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon not only has strong words about violent video games, it also features our favorite pizza-lovin' turtles.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon may be a violent, gleefully-stupid video game, but it also has a Serious Message about violent video games.
There is joy in stupidity.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon— the neon and fuchsia drenched stand alone expansion for Far Cry 3 — is out today for the Playstation Network.
I’d been hearing about Manborg—the no-budget homage to 1980s VHS action movies—for a while now. But I only realized that it was out on DVD today after I saw this tweet from Irrational Games writer Joe Fielder:
Ubisoft has shared another chunk of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon gameplay, this time narrated by the game's creative director Dean Evans. This gives a sense of Blood Dragon's willful stupidity, and shows off a trick that wasn't present in Far Cry 3: The ability to call in a massive land-dragon to fight your enemies. Nifty.
What might be the best standalone game expansion ever created just got the greatest live-action movie tie-in, even if it is under five minutes long.
The unveiling of Far Cry 3's bizarre expansion, Blood Dragon, was one of the most low-key in memory. Ubisoft haven't really bothered. Just put some art out, a few trailers, and bam, that's it.
Before the press could sit down and play Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Dean Evans, creative director on the project, wanted to make one thing clear: the script is terrible, the characters are one dimensional, and make no mistake, "the game is stupid." He said this proudly; the approach was a bullet point.
If the last part of that headline didn't make you happy deep inside, then this post - and this game - is not for you.
