How Far Cry 5 Breathes Fresh Life Into The Series (TSA)

TSA writes: "Far Cry 5 is a game that cuts close to the bone. While it keeps a lot of the same over the top action, the silliness and ridiculous characters, it takes the series to America’s backyard and features more than a few quite chillingly relevant underlying themes. The game’s antagonist, the messianic Father Joseph Seed, stating “They will take our guns, take our freedom, take our religion” is a soundbite that feels all too familiar. In typical Far Cry fashion, however, it goes to the extremes. Take the cult that Seed leads, the Project at Eden’s Gate. While they do tap into very real concerns of modern day America, its network of followers in this part of Montana is so widespread and fervent that it’s unimaginable that it could possibly be real."

So it's basically exactly what I thought it was going to be then; a bunch of french canadians who have no idea what they're talking about trying to do social commentary on the American right. Yawn.

Where did you see that lol? It wasn’t in the video, it says the opposite actually. The cult is more of an extreme and satiric view of the left. The “Yes” Hollywood sign? Cmon lol. I think satiric views on American culture by foreign devs are great personally. Can’t wait to play it. Yes we can! Yes we can!

So what's your problem. Rockstar is a foreign dev and they nail it every time. Is there something about the kind of people the game is showing that upsets you. Lay on the couch and talk to someone. It may help

I'm really disappointed that this is only going to be 2 player co-op, the 2nd player is going to be tethered to the 1st and the story progress doesn't count for the 2nd player. Everyone hated that in FC4, I have no idea why they out all that nonsense in the 5th one. I think I will wait a few weeks before I think about buying this one.

i wonder how much they are getting paid to say this bullshit

I was going to say the same thing. Gotta love all these fluff pieces that come out for these high profile games nowadays right before their release. no point during the video was there any evidence of "breathing new life" into the series other than shoehorning in some ridiculously confused and heavy-handed political BS.
