A "New" game, or another entry in a series...? It's gotta be Just Cause 3.
TheModernKamikaze  +   1132d ago
open-world probably means Just Cause 3.

Yeah, surprising how it comes right on the tails of Sony announcing an Ultimate Edition of Just Cause 2. Coincidence?
gatormatt80  +   1132d ago
I'm thinking about buying the Ultimate Edition today and since I'm a PS+ subscriber its only like $15. What do u guys think, is worth it??? Its sounds really tempting...

I paid $2.50 for Just Cause 2 on Steam about a year or so ago. It was worth $2.50. It's PROBABLY worth up to $19.99. There's a lot of fun and replay-ability, but it just grew tiresome for me.
SilentNegotiator  +   1131d ago
I agree with inveni.

What they created is quite solid (it even ran very impressively on the consoles), but it needed more variety and to have the cutscenes and voice actors thrown into oblivion. lol

It can definitely grow tiresome. Honestly, if you play the demo a few times....well, you've pretty much seen it all and experienced JC2.

Maybe we can get Just Cause 3 with Geomod and Euphoria...and make the black market cost less and add cheats. Basically just steal all the best mods from JC2 and make them standard

@gatormatt80 Yeh do it, I picked it up early last year for about £15 on 360. Some parts get a bit tedious, but it is a lot of fun and a very nice to look at game. Oh and jets are awesome.

comment was supposed to be a reply up here.
Agreed. Just announce Just Cause 3 Already!!!!

In the mean time. I will restart my progress all over again... Why? Simply Just cause... 2!

I will be waiting for E3 and see what thy game makers has to deliver.

Thats nearly finished, I doubt they could add in JC devs at this point...but never know, look at MGS Rising

I hope it's Just Cause 3!!! Definitely my favorite "sandbox" style game!!
Chuk5  +   1132d ago
I wonder what that could be.

Just Cause 3

Just Cause 3 would be great

If they can make the map even bigger then JC2 then I will be impressed. I mean having the LOST island in there where your plane actually blows up when you get near was just one of the great things hidden away in JC2...wonder if they would consider doing a FRINGE themed event in JC3.

The only thing they need to do is breathe some life into the map and focus on the gun mechanics. Hopefully it won't go over the top like what happened with Saints Row 3.

I hope they will leave something as silly as co-op or online out of the next JC game untill they can give the map some life and focus on other small problems like the gun mechanics. It should be the last thing they add.

Not sure I would describe coop and online as silly.. infact, co-op would be about the best feature they could add to Just Cause.

Apart from that I agree, breathe some life into the environment and polish up the core gameplay.
user5467007  +   1132d ago
It would be a waste of time when theres bigger things to be working on

Lets not forget they could turn around in the end if they did add it and say "Oh the reason theres not much life in the game is because we thought having your friend with you would satify you more"....obviously not worded like that but basicaly giving them an excuse not to work on the needed features of the game
Snookies12  +   1131d ago
@MikeCosgrove - I mentioned Co-op should be in JC3 on another article and I stand by the fact they would not have to sacrifice any development time for the singleplayer if they just allowed a second person to run around it with you. There really doesn't have to be any sort of special Co-op only missions, or activities, so long as you can run around the same world together.
user5467007  +   1131d ago
You really think it's that easier to add co-op.....wow you don't really know anything about how programing works do you.

Look at Skyrim Bethesda even said they wouldn't do it because it would cause a lot of problems which would ruin the single player part of the game.

For once can we not let a single player game have a sequel without wanting co-op....something you yourself will probably go on for like a month then get bored and go on something else.
Mutant-Spud  +   1131d ago
Add co-op to Just Cause and you basically have Crackdown...or Red Dead Redemption for that matter, open world co-op is boring, you need structure for it to be really fun..Horde, Firefight, L4D etc.
JellyJelly  +   1132d ago
I'd rather have a map about the same size as Just Cause 2 but with more interactive stuff and more objects.

Loved Just Cause 2. Some of the most fun I've had in an open world this gen.

Just Cause 2, great game, add the mods and you've got some of the most fun you can have in a sandbox title. Fingers crossed they continue with that.
Snookies12  +   1131d ago
I love the superman mod where you can just fly around the world without a parachute or anything lol. So happy I picked up JC2 on Steam when it was 5 bucks...
TheModernKamikaze  +   1132d ago
@DrStabwounds I haven't bought Just Cause 2 yet, the Ultimate Edition will suit me well.
llMurcielagoll  +   1132d ago
Agreed. Just announce Just Cause 3 Already!!!!
nik666uk  +   1132d ago
JC 2 looked brilliant, played terribly!!
TheModernKamikaze  +   1132d ago
I played the demo so many times, I used the break the time limit glitch to play for so many hour, it was most fun I had this gen.

CAN'T. WAIT. For Just Cause 3. Just Cause 2 was one of the most fun open-world games I've ever played.

I'm just assuming this is Just Cause 3 btw.
sonicsidewinder  +   1132d ago
For the cause!
BlmThug  +   1132d ago
Just cause 3. Cannot wait
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1132d ago
PLEASE Just Cause 3!!! Then again, mods have done a lot to improve Just Cause 2...despite it already being and incredibly fun game.

Destructable environments, please?!?
dude63  +   1131d ago
Just cause 3 no doubt. I hear they are showing off their other game at E3..a licensed game. Its rumoured they are developing a mad max game...hehe that could be sweet
Raoh  +   1131d ago
Interesting. I thought avalanche was owned by eidos that was bought out by square enix.

Just cause 2 was awesome, I urge everyone to buy it on pc, ps3, 360, any platform available, so much fun.
BitbyDeath  +   1131d ago
I'd prefer if they waited for nextgen machines
Pwnage18202  +   1131d ago
I LOVED JUST CAUSE 2!!! It was such a great game to play. The story was not as bad as many people expected. But one of the most fun things to do in that game is get in a plane and fly past another and grapple onto it. I find that very entertaining.
will_c_75  +   1131d ago
On a side note I would love a multi-player renegade ops, it would be fun as heck as a top down battlefront type game
LoLZoRz  +   1131d ago
f*ck yeah, JC3!

JC2 is the most fun open world game i've played.
