Far Cry Primal is something of an spinoff for the series—a stopgap release meant to fill the hole between Far Cry 4 and Far Cry 5. So it’s no surprise to see it recycling things from its predecessor.
At face value, Far Cry Primal looks like an easy diversion for Ubisoft to take from its main line of militaristic shooters—a side project full of vicious animals instead of rifles and rocket launchers. I’d argue it’s something more than that. Primal is the apotheosis of the series’ post-Far Cry 2 design trends.
Far Cry 4 has a very cool map editor. Mad Max is a very cool movie. Both feature shitty old cars. You know where this is going.
Who said Skyrim gets all the cool mods? Using the game’s built-in map editor, Romain Dannevoye has built his own version of Ocarina of Time’s Hyrule inside Far Cry 4.
I nearly gave up on Far Cry 4. I recently recovered from that mistake.

If you're playing Far Cry 4's Valley of the Yetis DLC, you probably want to upgrade your holsters. You'll need Malayan Tapir hides, but those animals aren't on your map. Happily, you can find four hides in a crate near your base camp.
Today on Highlight Reel we have a bunch of talking raptors in Arma 3 (or deinonychus if we're being technical), poetic justice in GTA V, the best use for the Kinect I've seen so far and more!

Today's Amazon Gold Box deal is a copy of Far Cry 4 on the platform of your choice for just $30. The price is only valid today, but I wouldn't be surprised if some versions sell out early. There's not a whole lot else to say here, except that you should play it if you haven't already. [Far Cry 4, $30]
On today's Highlight Reel we have rare Battlefield Hardline animations, zombies saying hi, modified GTA V missions that let cows ride bikes, frozen tigers and more!

Far Cry 4's post-release stuff kicked off this week with Escape From Durgesh Prison, a new timed challenge mode that's now available for purchase either individually or as part of the game's season pass. Sadly, it doesn't get things off to a great start.
Far Cry 4 got its first bit of DLC today, "Escape from Durgesh Prison." It's a timed challenge mode that can be played alone or in co-op (the best way to play Far Cry 4, if you ask me). It also features permadeath, which sounds intriguing. The DLC is available for $10, or as part of the season pass, which is $30.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this guy post a video of himself soaring through the eye of a needle next.
