GamesBeat: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is ’80s stupid awesome (preview)

Go to enough video game presentations, and you see the same project pillars creep into the PowerPoint slides. Stuff like “immersive,” “seamless transitions,” and “freedom.”

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon’s pillars are “honest,” “stupid,” and “fun.” (Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sounds awesome. And it's stand-alone? Win.

Rock on! Just that art alone makes this a must-buy.

I think I'm more excited about the soundtrack than the actual game (but only by a little!)

It looks really fun, I wish devs would do more stuff like this, sometimes I feel like game makers take games too seriously and forget that you can make anything happen in a game, no matter how ridiculous.

I hope this becomes standard practice. To release the pretty safe big budget game and then release the crazy creative risky ideas as a DLC campaign. That's no insult to Far cry 3 which I really liked but this seems like a good way for devs to create experiences that are truly off the wall and risky but have nice big budget graphics and gameplay without having to worry about losing all their money.

What is really stupid is the title of this article!!!80s games that resemble this Version of FAr cry 3 were not stupid in anyway they were FUN;and thats something that seems to be lacking a lot in most of this generation games.Games should always be about having fun with then first and primary...for realistic BS i have my day to day life,get it!
