Man I can't stop thinking about the game.. hnnnnnngggg.
First game in forever that I am thinking about playing whenever I am not.

On Sunday I went exploring for hours and still did not see every province. I made my way to the lake resort, grabbed a boat and covered the entire shoreline, found a pirates cave full of coke, then took a ride down a river. It took me over 30 minutes of non-stop motor boating before I reached the end of the river in the furthest SE province. I then snatched a lil' bird and made my way to the snow covered mountains in the SW, eventually finding some Inca ruins at altitudes that require chewing on coca to reach.

This game is nuts!

Haha.. damn those tractors..



It's just so nice to look at most of the time too.. I love all the variation in climates and weathers and terrain. I just got into the snow last night, curious to poke around up there for a bit.

I like that anything can be a new challenge, I mean we took down one little mini baby outpost and it was a struggle until we got the layout just right, for a weapon accessory! But you multiply that by.. however many conflict areas you have.. and that's a lot of game play. And it never plays out the same way twice.

Really curious how they're going to implement the DLC missions, if they'll be in the same areas or somewhere new.

So far, I'm a terrible pilot when it comes to planes. I'm look like a student when flying the helicopter. I rock the motorcycle.

You can tell I'm use to just playing commando. I'm a terrible tactician. Suppressors? We don't need no stinking suppressors.

Yeah.. it's addicting. I've already gotten in trouble a few times :-D

Vindicare.. sorry about last night.. I couldn't hear anyone. I realized later I had turned down the chat volume to zero.. haha.

Man I can't stop thinking about the game.. hnnnnnngggg.

Haha just now seeing this NSA. No worries, we were mostly dicking around trying to best each other's longest shots.

Speaking of which, I finally found something I'm annoyed with in this game, I can't hit anyone over 500ish meters without having someone much closer to tag them, if you go out to around 600m, the people just disappear, you have to have someone close enough that they render for the other guy to be able to shoot them. I guess the world only populates a certain distance around you. My dreams of a 1km shot are dashed. lol

I saw someone who hit a 1.5km shot, by having someone close to the other end, spotting and guiding in shots. So it technically is possible!

I'm loving helo's in this game.. but fuck UNIDAD!

But there is _ALWAYS_ that Ubisoft jank..

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09lh16su_qU[/ame]

But seriously.. this game can look downright amazing, even on the lowly Xbox One. I can't imagine it on a high end PC, or if they give it a performance boost with Scorpio.



So much fun, can't get enough of this game.

Shooting chickens with my sniper rifle is now my favorite mini game. Poof.
Me and some friends will have target practice for fun one of us will go grab an enemy and walk as far as possible and the others will try to snipe the enemy fighter from his grips so far the record is 1.2Km

Had some fun this weekend.. though PCS was either too drunk or too tired to really get in on the action (SLACKER).

First off.. I think I was indulging too much in La Medicina..

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJFIFLeYbLY[/ame]

That's a hell of a crevasse! I really appreciate the "Alright, breathe easy" at the end. Thanks for helping me pass from this world, buddy.

Second.. I knew it was our GHOST chopper.. but hell, I found a god-damn GHOSTCHOPPER!

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuGsZvMTg4Q[/ame]

GHOSTS are TAKIN' OUR JOOOOBS! It was really weird, it wouldn't let me land (or really gain altitude). I eventually just abandoned it and went on with the mission.. wonder if it's still floating around out there.. looking for souls to steal..

Finally, dodging SAM missiles with planes is old hat, a little loop-de-loop and they go flying right by. The small helicopter is pretty much the same.. but the dang "Not-Blackhawk" behaves like an AirBarge most of the time. I had a fun run down SAM alley..

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP54e12qGXQ[/ame]

I felt like every direction I went was worse than the last!

Grabbed the MSR last night to finally get 1 hit kills again (fucking guys in tank tops are 7.62 bullet sponges apparently) and now I need a new assault rifle as the TAR-21 just isn't doing the trick.

My problem is that I have spent over 30hrs in the game exploring, picking up supplies, intel and skill points. In that 30hrs, I have only rescued the resistance leader (very first mission) and then destroyed 2 of the 3 subs in co-op play. Now all the baddies are toughened up to match my high level and I have not even started the actual game.

Haha.. got to get on that! Itacua is pretty cake. I think the **** level of the province determines what spawns there mostly.

I've been switching between the ACR and the Mk17. The Mk17 shoots slower, but does more damage.

I also realized if you're not spotted, ANY weapon should be a one-shot kill.

If you stay up past your bedtime I can help you complete some of those!

I grabbed the ACR and started going thru missions in Itacua. It's funny because I can basically walk right into camp and just mow all of them down with me and the boys being ranked up a bit. I guess I've just spent a lot of time in ****+ provinces lately, hence my weapons acting like spit wads.

So I found the Black Smoke Monster from LOST:

I had to lighten the video because nights get so freaking dark.

That sweet, SWEET feeling when you take down two targets with one shot.. and no one even notices:

Watch where you park your helo, part 1:

There's just so much goodness that happens in this game. I should be recording it all. :fuckit:

WTF on the first video? Is that on purpose?
Haha I doubt it.. looks like a downed chopper that just went haywire after crashing in the lake, but it looked so weird I had to record it.. then it started taking off!

Was fighting a Blackhawk and was going to take a little bird to get to a different zone after I downed him. I unloaded with a lmg and he went down, crashing on a hanger. I got into my chopper, take off, and this bastard's like "oh no you don't".

Downs my chopper.

And also I was wondering if SAM sites respawn after being destroyed. It's hard to tell since there's so much territory. Well, I blew one up, went over to a neighboring encampment, and completed a story mission. I went back over to the outpost with the SAM site, hopped in a helo and was immediately shot down.

And I'm a little too far into this to realize you can just do what we did in Far Cry 3 + 4 and just shoot the alarms.

PCS.. your daughter did good! I think she was a better teammate than you!

And yeah, SAM sites respawn. I'm not sure how and when, but they do. Could be time based or if you get a cutscene or something maybe? Evasive action is the best bet, I've gotten decent at avoiding the missiles, though it's a lot harder in a Blackhawk.

Also, after we finished playing, I watched Sicario. Holy hell it's like playing Ghost Recon!
Went to a pre-screening of it and some asshole yelled out a joke when they were in the tunnel at the end and it completely destroyed the suspense. Sooooo pissed. Wonder if it's been long enough to watch it again and actually get engrossed in the story.

Had some fun with the Media Luna airfield the other day.. aka the place where aircraft go to die.

I made a two-part video..

First up:

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAjlhZ2wRWs[/ame].

Seems like the easiest way I've found to get there in one piece. I also figured out the SAM sites have a vertical range too, it seems to be in the 1km-1.5km range. So if you need to travel a long distance, GET HIGH.

Second:

[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf5ePOIxv3s[/ame]

This was.. ah, decidedly trickier.. holy hell how many SAM sites ARE there around this airfield? I'm not sure if I should get my pilots license revoked for that flying, or get a promotion!
