    I think Ubisoft and Universal could make the ultimate crossover: The Far Cry and the Furious. Play as Dominic Toretto who can call on the ghost of Paul Walker to use his ghost abilities to win races and capture outposts, use bows and arrows from your V8-powered car for stealth and climb towers without ever getting off the wheel.

    I think Adam and Lawrence hit a key point when talking about Black Flag and Breath Of The Wild, but it wasn't quite articulated. What they were talking about is the difference between a sandbox game and an open world game.


    Sandbox games give the player a set of tools that can interact with each other in a non scripted way, like the physics in Zelda. A sandbox doesn't need a large open map (for example look at how Bungie used to talk about Halo as a sandbox) though they often have one. The enjoyment of a sandbox comes from experimenting and being surprised by what the simulation can do.


    Ubisoft style open world games are basically a set of tasks scattered around a large map, and the joy is supposed to come from moving around the world and performing the tasks. However there's often a lack of effort put in to make the tasks intrinsically enjoyable, and as Lawrence said they're often highly scripted and repetitive. My disdain for the way Ubisoft designs games is they focus on the number of tasks over the other factors, and the resulting predictability kills the fun.

      they take vacations; but they don't all take it at the same time, plus they record  multiple videos and schedule it so that there's always content, advantage of having multiple people and editors

    16:25 In Blackflag and other Assassins Creed game you actually do get something from doing the side missions, whether it resources to upgrades or the upgrade blueprints themselves, Those upgrades can seem meaningless if you don't really care how much damages your cannon in blackflag does or Cane-knife in Syndicate, but you do get upgrades that will be able to help you ease through the game along with the option to choose colours. Also two ubisoft open worlds you didn't mention was the Ghost recon wildlands and The division. Two games that are different both in world building and mechanics yet still both Tom clancy.


    Also it seems weird to assume that Red dead would compete with Far cry just because they have a similar setting. They very different types of games one of the is a sandbox Rockstar game and the other is a sandbox fps ubisoft game.

    "It's not about how easy its done, its that its easy and for babies"


    It's about the package, the only reason ANYONE watched Adam stream his anime girl mockup was because its FH Adam, if he was a rando who saw that and tried to replicate it he would never have gotten views. Adam's just salty that someone succeeded doing something he considers cheap.


    It's like complaining "This successful Piano streamer is just mashing keys on an instrument, anyone could do that, watch me do it" and then a thousand people who are already fans of you go watch you smash your face into a keyboard for an hour and you conclude "ya look at how easy this was"

    Man sometimes this podcast feels like it should be on the know,in my opinion, i feel  they spend too much time on one topic, analyzing every single detail possible out of it. I think it just seems weird because, I think funhaus is a comedy channel, and granted they definitely should talk more loosely and not stick a strict schedule and be forced to talk about things. I dont know it could just be me. Sorry if i sounded like a dick.

      Yeah, the first topic ran a little long for me. It probably didn't help that I don't really care about Far Cry or Red Dead Redemption so I wasn't really the target audience. I just skipped ahead to their next topic or back to their natural conversation.

    Hey, I just wanted to submit an entry into the hard nettin' contest. It is called the Jailhouse/Prison workout. These youtube videos are very successful and many of the creators have large subscriber counts and vibrant communities. I believe this is some hard nettin' because without the internet these convicts/excons would never be able to share their workouts and gain such followings. Also i thought this might pique james interests a bit more. I am aware that buzzfeed did a video similar to this, but i am strictly discussing videos made by convicts or ex-cons about their prison workout routines.

    I think that Far Cry would do better working in native american mythology and lore, there's always been a touch of magic in the the Far Cry universe it seems to me and Red Dead would do better from an american frontier experience in my opinion.

    I'm getting sick of Big Knee Lover, too many weeks as Hard Nettin winner. It's not even that impressive, dude likes knees big whoop. The AI should have won last week, and due to a poor competitor this week, BKL wins again. #Rigged Adam ruined the system, and I'm not sure I can care about Hard Nettin anymore.

    Great podcast as always, just wanted to chime in though and say that Far Cry is actually connected to the "ubisoft universe" or whatever you'd call it. It's not separate as you may think. Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, Far Cry, and perhaps some others are all connected in the same universe.

    I like the fun personal discussions about buying a house and going to Universal as well as the serious topics on video games, but god, I'm instantly out when it comes time for the fanfiction. Or if there are ever anymore Xander Cage excerpts. 


    Like 20 minutes of this episode on niche fuckery, which if others enjoy great, but having other stories hurried so there's time for that? ugh.

    The girl in Little Nightmares is so tiny because it's meant to convey how big adults seem when you're a little kid. It's similar to Limbo, but it's definitely its own game. Like you said, beautiful art style, very eerie feel. I thought it was very very cool.

    I guess I'm a Far Cry hipster in that the only one I really enjoyed was Far Cry 2. I can understand why people don't enjoy it, especially if you go to it from the modern Far Cry games, but it had this constantly oppressive and cruel atmosphere that made it feel you really were trying to survive in a warzone. The respawning enemy checkpoints, very dangerous roads and limited fast travel forced you plan out every single journey you took across the map. It was constantly tense and you had to earn every single victory.


    I felt like Far Cry 3 was an adolescent power trip, and I don't think that's inherently a bad thing, but by about halfway point I found it unsatisfying and repetitive. It gave you a bunch of badass skills but rather than the difficulty going up to compensate for that, the game only got easier. It had a better narrative structure than 2 did, and delivered its story better, but I felt like the plot was more white saviour power fantasy shit.  Far Cry 2 made no bones about the fact that were an unwelcome meddling outsider; the world was hostile and you had to fight to survive. 


    TD;LR Far Cry 2 is first person shooter Dark Souls with guns in Africa and you either love it or hate it for that.

      I went to a dentist to get it done, but it didn't go well. They applied a gel and brought a light thingy down to my teeth. I started to get intermittent (every 10 seconds or so), overwhelming pulses of nerve pain across every tooth hit by the light. Only comparable pain was a part of a routine STD panel when someone shoved a cotton swab dipped in pure alcohol up my urethra. But in each tooth simultaneously.


      I tapped out. Hard.


      I'm told my reaction to it was unusual.

    So Lawrence i really hope you see and find the time to read this comment.So Far Cry games are unique in the sense that they are perfect storm off all that we are used to in video games, yet tweaked and change to create a familiarly new experience every time. First we have an unique, interesting and exotic setting each that brings visual pleasure and a sense of intrigue to discover the secrets that such locations hold in the India Jones kind of way, to this we add a tried and tested first person formula, but with exuberant amount of fun weaponry and skills to unlock, giving the player some short term goals. At the same time we are limited to carrying a certain amount of such weaponry forcing the player to experiment with different approaches to find the one he likes best, making what would be extremely boring repetitive missions more interesting as you tackle them in different ways. Next to the mix we add compelling antagonist and decent story to drive the player interest into the long term goal of defeating them (something done specially well with vaas in FC3, and decently by Ming in FC4) with some choice making along the way to give the player a bigger sense of having an effect on the world. Finally on top sprinkle a descent amount of interesting side characters w/respective quests, cheaply fun challenges (even though somewhat repetitive) and decent amount of collectibles for the fans of such. all to create a polished experience (because if nothing else this games are polished) that includes all that we know and love from video games, while keeping interesting with a varied yet not overwhelming open world, interesting characters(specially the antagonist) and fun easy going game play (where you can become op, one of my personal favorites things to do in games). so really all taken into consideration the Far Cry experience is one that fulfill many diverse gaming "wants" while still giving a approachable, fun and chill experience that as a gamer you enjoy, even though its not mind blowing or something totally new and unseen.

    I haven't watched this through yet but last night I had a dream Carcosa was chasing me down and I had to hide somewhere, and out of the sky I hear Bruce screaming "OOH HE'S SO CLOSE" as my dream turned into a Let's Play so...thanks for turning that nightmare around, Bruce.
