I'm trying to grasp why a techinically sound open world FPS with some design flaws receives a worse overall internal community rating than that of RAGE; which was a fundamentally broken game, in reference to it's technical limitations and design choices.
Farcry2 was crappy, but I talked with a developer in Montreal and he said its going to be much better and I believe its done by different crew. Was Farcry 2 ubisoft aswell? I know 3 is. .
The story has to do with saving someone from pirates and island natives, and the more you upgrade your stuff, the more you become like one of the island natives. caring less and less for the girl. I think you have an option to be more like a island native, or more like a pirate.. Something of that nature. I'll be checking it out.
Anyone know why the heck I am getting a "Could not find suitable display settings" error on launch?
Running 3240x1920 portrait. Tried 5780x1080 landscape and same error. I matched the resolution lines up in the GamerProfileIGE.xml in games\documents folder but that had no effect.
Gosh I hate trash software, might try and get a refund with Steam I have no patience anymore for broken software.
I'm probably a little late to this party, but I've been playing FC3 over the last week and have been having a total blast. Great game in terms of visuals, gameplay, and presentation.
I dig the various sub-plots, extra missions, and fun random things to do. The different weapons are nice, too, although the "Shredder" is a borderline God weapon in most instances.
I have all of the details cranked, but MSAA disabled. That one setting seems to be a performance killer on my system. I don't really see much difference without it anyway.
Personally, I think I've had more fun with this game than pretty much any other (new) game in recent memory.
Except for the part where the game world feels incredibly dull after the first few missions. The story itself is a little odd (you'll see what I mean the more you get into it), and the side-quests are horrifyingly boring. IMO, anyway.
Graphics were pretty top notch, and sound design was impressive.
I'd consider Tomb Raider or Bioshock Infinite, as they're quite a lot better overall, if you haven't tried those that is.
