$50 bucks is cheaper than most new-releases. Most new games (big budget games) are $60. Farcry 3 is worth it, the game is phenomenal.


Far Cry is $60 at futureshop, so $40 when I use coupon. Gotta wait until Friday though :(

I haven't stopped playing this game since I got it Monday, so addicting. But grrrr, the hunter missions where you need to kill the animal with a bow get so frustrating.

Oh man, I went out and bought the bow as soon as I saved up 900 bucks (I know you get it for free after unlocking towers, but I wanted it real bad!) and I just slay with that thing, I love it sooo much! Get the non-red dot sight (can't remember exactly what it's called) if you haven't already, it really helps. The only problem animal I had trouble with was the Man Eater shark.

When it attacks you just run to the other side of the courtyard until it stops for a couple seconds and you should have time to get a coupe shots at it (you have to hit it in the mask).

As for the Maneater Shark. Get a boat that you can stand in (not a jetski) and tag it with your camera. You have to aim a bit higher with the bow when shooting into water but just keep shooting and eventually you will kill it. (don't worry about wasting arrows, you can get them for free on the dock)

Hope it helped ::D

I just ended up finishing the game. I love that choice that they give you at the end of the game, to test how well you've embraced the craziness of it all. It was an easy choice to do the right thing for me, but I can imagine a lot of people would want to embrace the power.

But yeah, on the whole this game was brilliant.

I love how there's a lot of wacky s*** that happens in this game. Supernatural like stuff.

I took the easy way out on the easiest hunter mission by throwing a grenade first, wounding the animal. Nearly killed myself in the process too..

Got thru it this morning. Now the one that's frustrating me is protecting the plane as the guy works on it. He's useless. I can usually make it until just after the jeep shows up but always lose because the other guy dies.

Found a trick to the hunter missions where you need to use a bow. As long as the bow is equipped, you can kill them with a knife. So if you take a couple shots and end up in close combat, just use your knife and it will count.

It says when you start the hunter missions you can use use either the weapon of choice or the knife to kill the animal.

Also you can use whatever weapon you want to shoot the animal as long as you use the weapon of choice to kill it.

Oh, LOL. Never noticed that before. It's really easy with the knife as long as you have a couple healing syringes. I spent about an hour on one of the missions with a bow. Discovered I could use the knife, and finished 10 in about 45 minutes.

Yeah Relic #1 is in the cave that all your friends stay in. It also isn't on the map and once you complete a certain mission the cave is closed off and you can't go in anymore. I missed it too so I'm also stuck with one relic missing. Apparently the next patch will automatically give it to the people who missed it

Oh, ok. I was wondering about relics you might miss out on during missions while I was doing those missions for Buck.

Is that the only one?
