Difficulty: 0

greetings mother of actors my name's Sam yep still is and today I'm going to be

talking to you all about the uber popular video game series known as Far

Cry yes the Far Cry games have taken us to paradise

only to make us realize that paradise is a dangerous terrifying hellscape filled

with trigger-happy sociopaths and fishes wild animals for the taste for human

flesh and it's just really muggy I mean just super humid but what viral video is

referenced repeatedly in the series what did JLo do to get shaded in Far Cry 4

why not have a gettin up howl up above and exactly how much you liked all those

references in Easter eggs because I'm warning you now there's a lot of them in

this one but anyway I digress 2 out of 3 those questions are going to

be answered so strapped into your buzzer fly off to a five-star hotel on a

neighboring island away from all the murder and prepare yourself for 101 fact

about far cry number 1 far cry is across media franchise which centers around a

core series a first-person shooter video games all of which have been published

by Ubisoft a company which in the course of researching this video I have

discovered it's correctly pronounce Ubisoft by everyone except French

speakers who instead pronounce it Ubisoft no Morgan no new moroder each

game focuses on a separate narrative that is canonically distant and

unconnected to the other games in the series sort of like if American Horror

Story was a video game series and also like American Horror Story it would be

much better with Jessica Lange in it seriously get her back number 3 however

the Far Cry games do share strong environmental and gameplay themes

placing the player in a wide explorable world in which they fight against

despots dictators and other varieties of douchebag

each world is also home to wild animals that can be used for the players own

ends or they may just attack and kill you it's us all them folks better be

damned number 4 the games of the Far Cry series

have been generally very well received critically and a considered commercial

successes figures from Ubisoft indicate lifetime sales of the Far Cry franchise

in excess of 20 million units number 5 the first game simply titled

Far Cry was released in March of 2004 and was developed by a German video game

a software developer called Crytek published by Ubisoft I know what you're

thinking no not that thing don't worry about that happens to everybody

I mean that Crytek may sound like a very sad company but after significant

research I can confirm they're just a tech company with a misleading name

number six the gang was originally created by Crytek to show off their

fancy new CryEngine software which again sounds like a very sad game engine as

such the game started life as a short unplayable tech demo called exile

dinosaur Island which featured a variety of dinosaurs roaming across an island

landscape the graphics looked laughably dated now but in 2001 they were pants

ruining Li realistic number 7 eventually the project had been looked into the

game now recognizable as the original Far Cry set on a number of mysterious

Islands far cry follows the story of ex military servicemen Jack Carver who's

searching for missing journalist he was escorting before their boat was

destroyed by mercenaries a hater when that happens makes my commute a

nightmare number 8 there is however a degree of inconsistency regarding

Carver's military service you see in the original Far Cry it was established that

he was an Army Special Forces soldier but in Far Cry instincts it states that

he was a u.s. Navy officer either Carver followed a very unique and convoluted

military career path the Jack Carver in the original game is a different Jack

Carver to the one in instincts or it's just a genuine mistake and I'm reading

into it far too much number nine at the end of the original far cry the gunshot

sound you hear from the Desert Eagle that Jack Carver uses to execute Harlan

Doyle is exactly the same as the noise created by the p9p in the first-person

shooter game perfect dark zero did you think we wouldn't notice huh

what do you take us for idiots number 10 despite the name it's given in

the game call it rhymes the m4 assault rifle embark fight is not actually an m4

at all genuine emboss have a removal carry handle which is attached to the

weapon with two prominent screw knobs screw knobs at the rifle and far cry

conspicuously lacks the m4 scene in the game appears to be a colt model 727 did

you think we wouldn't notice guys number 11

within four months of release far cry has sold over seven hundred and thirty

thousand units mmm

that's a lot of Units number 12 however far crimes release was not without

controversy upon the release of the game's demo version in March 2004 a

German federal agency that's responsible for censoring material allegedly harmful

to young people it has a really long German name I can't be bothered to

attempt to pronounce it's that by the way declared that the violence in the

game was too high even for adult and quickly index the demo the full version

had most of that violence but nevertheless received and not suitable

for under 18s rating Oh Germany its 2004 well it was 2004 now it's 2018 grow up

number 13 for some bizarre reason there's an english-language German movie

based on the original Far Cry game titled simply Far Cry the film stars

German actor til Schweiger and his directed by German filmmaker

over ball who was infamous for creating some of the worst films ever made

and then boxing critics when it afterwards that's real by the way look

it up predictably the film was not well received in fact IDN of all people even

went so far as to warn auditors to avoid it at all costs okay I kind of make me

want to watch it even more now number fourteen after the first game Ubisoft

obtained the rights to the Far Cry franchise and since then most of the

development of the other games have been handled by Ubisoft Montreal in Canada

Fairborn and that's all the French be great ECC I know good night everybody

number 15 far cry 2 was released in October 2008 representing a darker more

realistic direction for the series the game which takes place in an unnamed

Wartell African country is more character-driven than the original with

a huge map covered in jungles deserts and serve Anna's number 16 the story of

Far Cry 2 is heavily inspired by heart of darkness a novella written by Polish

British novelist Joseph Conrad in 1899 which follows the story of an ill-fated

voyage up the Congo River deep into Central Africa

much like the book that games themes were romp around violence insanity and

moral gray areas hey do you know the definition of insanity by the way I

swear someone told me before but I couldn't remember also is a bonus fact

for you Apocalypse Now is based on the same book they go culture number 17 as

if that wasn't enough of a clue the very last mission is played in an area called

heart of darkness hmm that's a very nice reference number

18 as part of the marketing for far cry 2 a blog entitled war unlimited my

journey through a war zone was created which featured regular posts from Ruben

Alou who can be a journalist at the player encounters within the game

Alou became B's blog detailed his investigation into the jackal the game's

principal antagonist spoiler alert it's not really a jackal number 19 though the

country in which the game takes place has never explicitly confirmed it's

thought to be based on the landlocked West African nation of Mali the game

features a range of landscapes and climates typical of Mali as well as

architecture inspired by that of the Dogon people an indigenous Malian ethnic

group there's even a location in the game called dogon village number 20 the

vast majority of the useful firearms in Far Cry 2 have been reversed putting the

ejection port on the left side rather than the rights this has been done to

give players a better view of the bullets flying out of the ejection port

as well as the more visually interesting moving parts levers and controls usually

found on the right side of a gun why because gun pawn of course number 21

in the Xbox 360 version Far Cry 2 1 achievement is titled dharma llamo Tony

moto this is actually a Swahili proverb which were probably mispronounced

entirely that refers to the idea that serious situations require an equally

serious response in the form of strong leadership and bold decision-making

similar to the English expression fight fire with fire

the achievement is unlocked as part of the game's main story by reigniting the

conflict between the games two competing factions number 22 oh hey here's a game

theory for you map that some people believe that the jackal is actually Jack

Carver from the original Far Cry game the characters have similar build

similar backgrounds and the simple fact that the checkol contains the name Jack

has also been brought up as evidence not only that a cutscene from the end of Far

Cry instincts shows Doyle sliding a box over to Jack as payment the contents are

never shown but many speculate that the box contains diamonds

hmm number 23 the third installment of the series Far Cry 3 was released in

late 2012 and follows protagonist Jason Brody who literally has bro in his name

and bus' also save his kidnapped friends after a group vacation goes entirely

boobs up the game was a critical and commercial success selling over 10

million copies within just one year of release number 24 however the story

wasn't always about an unlucky group of friends whose perfect beach vacay it's

ruined by pirates former Far Cry 3 narrative director Raphael van Nierop

sated that he and his team planned on creating a story for the game that would

create a single cohesive narrative along with the previous two titles in order to

engender a strong sense of identity for the Far Cry series and propel it into

the future sounds like a great idea I wonder what happened number 25 however

after Van Lee rock left the company Ubisoft dropped that idea and produced a

game with a narrative entirely separate from its predecessors this did not make

Van Leer oper happy van leahrob who subsequently declared I have no interest

in playing far cry anymore the ICA's number 26 the game's leaves

writer jeff reeyot Alemu stated that he intended far cry 3 to be a commentary on

what shooting means and what it does to humanity all I can help you out there

Jeff it means humans die number 27 many people took issue with far cry 3 based

on perceived colonial undertones evidence for the game story of a white

guy coming to an island populated by dark-skinned natives and helping them

with all their troubles that they couldn't possibly deal with by

themselves you know the whole white Savior thing in response your will and

claim that it's the natives who control Jason Brody using him as a tool for

their own ends not the other way around number 28

what a Far Cry 3 's and indeed all of gaming's most beloved characters is

actually one of the game's principal antagonists vars however everyone's

favorite mohawk sociopath almost wasn't in the game at all early versions of Far

Cry 3 instead featured a muscle-bound body called bull but that plan was

jettisoned in favor of ours when voice actor Michael mando auditioned who

impressed the games developers with his creepy unpredictable energy oh really

everyone is usually upset by my creepy unpredictable energy blah see you're

upset aren't you number 29 one of the main features of

the game is Jason's ornate arm tattoo which fills up as players progress

throughout the game however in order to completely finish the ink you have to go

beyond merely guessing all the skill points and find all the 120 panics

scattered across the map the radix are represented by dots which run the entire

length of the tattoo when every relic has been discovered that isn't how

tattoos work normally but let's move on number 30 eagle-eyed and bat-eared

players of the Far Cry series will be acutely aware that the games are filled

to the brim with all manner of delicious references to films TV books songs and

even under video games who'da thorn fit for instance when CIA

agent Willis Huntley is preparing to leave he tells you that he's joining

task force 141 fans of card will notice that this refers to task force 141 the

clues in the name the multinational special operations

unit and main protagonists of call of duty modern warfare 2 number 31 another

videogame nod can be found in The Lost expeditions DLC when Jason travels to an

abandoned military silo and finds documents marked with the Abstergo logo

from artisans Creed as well as a faded Abstergo logo on the wall just to make

sure you've got it number 32 not only that there's also a

letter which references genetic memory and edom the letter also contains an

elevator access code which is 1 2 2 1 1 2 referring to the 21st of December 2012

which the Mayan supposedly marked as the apocalypse and the date on which Desmond

mild again from a screed saves the planet from a devastating coronal mass

ejection from the Sun number 33 there's another moment in which Jason activates

the lift and says would you kindly activate in an Irish action just like I

did just then mimicking the character of that verse from the original BioShock

which we may have made a video about number 34 that's another point to chase

the exclaims thank God there aren't any honey badgers down here

honey badgers down here there's no way this is an accident as it wouldn't make

any sense if Jason wasn't talking about the Internet's favorite mustelid the

honey badger honey badger rose to fame as the subject of a viral video entitled

the crazy nasty-ass honey badger which humorously depicts the honey badger as

the furry little four-legged badass that it is number 35 at one point while Jason

is climbing through a missile silo he says you know I could use a portal right

now you know I could use it in reference to the

beloved video game series portal which shockingly contains spatial portals that

are very handy when you don't want to climb through a missile silo number 36

if you travel to the rough area around the coordinates X 6 - oh and Y 5 6 0 you

will find yourself on a beach on one of the northern islands a cursory glance at

your surroundings will reveal to dead people that been hanged from a tree and

a man buried up to his neck in the sand and you can only see his hand

interacting with this will earn you these say hi to the Internet achievement

which is a reference to the Far Cry experience the promotional series

starring Christopher mintz-plasse from Superbad and Michael mando in which

McLovin is eventually buried up to his neck on a beach very similar to this one

number 37 not only that the image of a man buried in the sand in front of two

people hanging from a tree one of them being upside down comes directly from

the Far Cry 3 cover art which depicts exactly the same thing only with var

sitting menacingly next to the unlucky barrack gent number 38 if you go

underwater in the sea around the coordinates X 800 and Y 650 you will

find a soldier sitting on a sea floor hugging a toilet with his head leaning

into the bowl either he's seasick hungover all he was

murdered and placed in this position as a final humiliation you decide let us

know in our fans a youtube poll number 39 in the cave under dr. Alec

Earnhardt's mansion you can find a briefcase with mr. miyagi written on it

near the boat this is a reference to mr. Miyagi a character from the corrupt you

know what if you don't know who mr. Miyagi is I just I just feel sorry for

you frankly number 40 roughly located around the coordinates X 7 9 6 + y 6 4 7

there is a large cave containing three chests one metal and two wooden one of

the boxes contained a loot item called ripped teddy bear and the immediate area

is littered with bones this by the way is all a sly reference

- Goldilocks and the three bears number 41 the loot item I just mentioned the

ripped teddy bear is itself another reference my god this game is full of

them this items description says the bear has a musty smell and is missing an

eye with stuffing coming through the seams and crucially has a torn label

that reads Bober this is pretty much an exact description of Bobo the childhood

teddy bear that belongs to mr. burns in the Simpsons episode entitled rosebud

the meaning of life memory cards 16 which is located on the South Island

makes reference to high quality meth coming from New Mexico which will

hopefully recapture some of the markets lost to the product coming out of New

Mexico hmm what could this be a reference to well I'll tell you this is

a Nazi uber popular method based TV show Breaking Bad which is frankly the best

TV show of all time come up me countdown fans

number 43 another one of the collectible memory cards memory card 20 contains

information on how to create a drug called spice which is described as

similar to marijuana but with additional side effects one of which is

interstellar travel Wow get me some of that this is highly reminiscent of the

spice melange a narcotic featured in the book dune that gifts those who ingest it

with an extended lifespan and expanded sensory perceptions number 44

the handbook entry for vices pirates parodies lyrics from the song Jack

Sparrow by Andy samberg's comedy trio The Lonely Island the description

mentions vasas pirate hordes and instead of naming Jack Sparrow as the jester of

Tortuga dubs vas as the gesture of Rock Island

that's all otherwise great listen to it and listen to all the Lonely Island this

damn good this is the tale of number 45 at the beginning of the side mission

entitled home delivered a villager who is enlisting your help talks about a

sacred pool with ruins at the bottom describing it as spooky scary stuff like

a werewolf bar mitzva that sounds very racist but sure let's better move on

this is an affectionate nod to the novel Tea Party song of the same name

performed by 30 rock Tracy Morgan for which he's apparently received a gold

record number 46 in the game's introduction right at the start as

introductions tend to be Jason can be seen kicking a coconut tree and catching

a falling coconut you can actually go to this very location which is found on the

rock Islands and the coordinates X 4 6 5 y 7 9 3

a little east of well short wreckers house outpost number 47 the description

for the game is master difficulty setting literally just state for the

experiences worse the malaria this is a reference to the infamous malaria

mechanic in the previous game Far Cry 2 number 48 in the mission the Medusa's

call Jason infiltrates a beached vessel named Medusa which just so happens to be

the name of the Beaudry's by Jack Carver and Valerie Constantine to reach the

island to dr. Krieger in the original far tried game

I feel like naming a ship after a murderous mythological Greek Gorgon with

snake hair it's just asking for trouble number 49 there is a warning message

that can be found in various places in Far Cry 3 such as on the alarm for

outpost and under the handlebar on jet skis that reads courtrand playing too

much video games may lead to aggressive behavior handle woodcare up dub is this

a mocking parody for misguided moral Crusaders who believe video games are to

blame for bad behavior and children I hope so because they're wrong number 50

a few months after the release of Far Cry 3 Ubisoft released a standalone

expansion pack entitled Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon the game is based on the world of

Far Cry 3 but with a whole new story and a highly stylized neon filled visual

theme that's essentially a parody of so bad they're good 80s action films

particularly those between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone

however the game is set in the futuristic world of 2007 and follows the

story of Rex an American cybernetic super soldier okay someone had a bit too

much of that spice I think number 51 if you head to the promotional website for

blood track and you'll be greeted by terrifying the outdated site to protect

and garish 80s visuals not only that but if you went to the Konami code which

true gamers will know is up up down down left right left right B a your cursor

will change into a targeting reticule enabling you to shoot at and destroy

every component on the site which ultimately reveals a picture of an Omega

4 soldier the primary enemy faction in Blood Dragon number 52 the next

installment in the main series entitled Far Cry 4 was released in November of

2014 the game uses a heavily modified version of the same engine used in Far

Cry 3 and like its predecessors was both a critical and commercial success good

for you far cry 4 good for you number 53 the game follows the story of a Jay

Galle the American who has traveled to his

fictional homeland of kirat to spread his deceased mother's ashes

sadly for AJ but happily for gamers who want to play on through any explosion

film action caper the boss on which he is traveling is attacked and things to

generally go south and worse from there number 54 AJ is motivated at least

initially but the death of a relative in his case his mother this appears to be a

favourite Darris a overused plot element of Ubisoft as the main characters in

several other Ubisoft titles are subject to this trope including Aiden Pearce

from watchdogs pretty much every single protagonist from Assassin's Creed and of

course Jason Brody from Far Cry 3 number 55 Mike Far Cry 3 was originally going

to be direct sequel to Far Cry 2 Far Cry 4 was really going to be direct sequel

to har Cry 3 with me so far good as a result the game's fascinating baddie

pagan min didn't exist in early development again however this plan was

ultimately scrapped and pagan min was brought to life in all his fashionably

murderous glory number 56 the game setting of karate is

a fictional Himalayan country based on places like Nepal and Tibet exaggerating

elements from such regions into a wild rugged and mountainous landscape that

offers a great degree of center verticality than other previous Far Cry

games number 57 in order to help form a coherent and believable culture for Kerr

at the game's creators sent a team to Nepal to gain first-hand experience with

the region when the team returned and shared their experiences from the trip

the design of far cry 4 shifted away from the Nepalese inspired Civil War to

a focus on interactions with interesting characters number 58 as with previous

games in the series the appearance of wild animals is very important - far cry

4 one feature that the game's greatest were adamant about including was the

ability to ride elephants which I personally think should appear in more

games in letting a rideable elephant in GTA I don't know the sims Oh God

what I wouldn't give number 59 when Troy Baker audition for the role of pagan min

which he did and successfully got he opted to ignore the script and instead

threatened an assistant as part of an emphatic improvised performance

apparently this was exactly what that team was looking for they must have

really hated that assistant number 60 hilariously it's possible to complete

the game in a matter of minutes without cheating simply by doing nothing at the

start of the game when you were in pagan mins palace min asked you to wait at

which you are supposed to run away however if

you actually obey men like the cock you are and wait he will return and take AJ

to scatter his mother's ashes peacefully and the shrine to Lakshman and min you

then exit in a helicopter as the credits roll to the sound of should I stay or

should I go by the clash number 61 if he thought Far Cry 3 was full of references

yeah it is far cry 4 is no different let's start

off with a reference to the good book no not ready player one I mean the Bible

the character of long Ennis gets his name from the legendary figure from

Christian mythology sent her up in the Roman soldier who pierced you to suicide

with alarms but the similarities extend beyond just a shared name both have been

soldiers who turned to religion after committing acts a questionable morality

in fact the biblical long Ennis later became a saint

number 62 there are also a number of similarities between long Ennis and

Joshua Milton Blahyi a Liberian warlord known for committing various atrocities

during the first Liberian Civil War in the early 90s who was also known by the

nickname general butt naked owing to his bizarre habit of going into battle

wearing only shoes like loneliness ye was responsible for various war crimes

before an abrupt conversion to Christianity and hopefully clothing

number 63 kirat International Airport is modeled directly on Tenzing Hillery

Airport a real-life airport located in eastern Nepal the layout of the airport

buildings is strikingly similar and the runway even mimics Tenzing Hillary's

infamous sloping runway which sounds incredibly dangerous nintendo64 the ajm'

9 handgun found in Far Cry 4 is a nod to Robocop's Auto 9 a modified beretta 93r

assigned from just looking pretty much exactly the same as the metalman

signature gun Robocop is made in the remains of police officer Alex J Murphy

get it Alex J Murphy a JM it's a solid ref guy's number 65 like why is the HS

77 which looks very similar to the n7 12 sidearm is a reference to Star Wars not

only does the weapon bear a strong visual resemblance for Han Solo's

blaster it's a combination of Han Solo's initials and 77 the year in which the

original Star Wars film was released number ship th the GPS locator given to

AJ by long Ernest in his first mission is in fact the same locator from far cry

2 but with a smashed screen first of all problems AJ now get out

and start killing people number 67 the hypodermic needle that can be found

across the island has a description that reads filled with glowing liquid if this

were a failed underwater utopia you wouldn't think twice about jamming

this into your arm this is not only true but also a reference to plasmin

injections from the original BioShock game number 68 there's a hut in VAR cry

4 which is occupied by several dead bodies one of which has a red plastic

bucket on his head and an arrow stuck in his knee this is a double-whammy

reference to the popular Skyrim exploit of placing buckets on people's heads and

of course the famous line spoken by numerous guards who claimed that they

too had a past as an adventurer until the sad day when they took an arrow to

the knee made it's an occupational hazard of adventuring you knew what you

were getting into number 69

during the lost and confused side mission AJ is given a truck by Yogi and

Reggie which they call the oculus spliff an obvious nod to the oculus rift over

your headset that we covered extensively in our video about virtual reality which

you should totally check out it's not enough you did the first time number 70

someone behind the scenes at far cry must really love honey badgers because

not only were they referenced back in Far Cry 3 the fighters were going to

also introduces huntable animals in Far Cry 4 and they are little owls number 71

not only that the aforementioned viral video the crazy nasty-ass honey badger

is referenced by pagan mins fabulous former trailer muumuu chiffon who

rightly claims that honey badgers don't get number 72 there's a memo posted on

the small Hut near the Kings bridge that reads as follows

inspector welcome to your new position at Kings bridge border checkpoint stamp

passport entry visa and return documents to entrant entry is restricted to karate

citizens only deny all foreigners glory to correct this is a reference to the

popular indie game by the name of papers please first mission of which has these

almost exact instructions number 73 in Herc's last mission the player has to

rescue him by hijacking a truck and driving it through a series of waypoints

without dipping below a certain speed or the truck would explode gosh that sounds

familiar I wonder why well here's why it's one

big reference to the movie speed starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock

in which a bomb planted on a bus is set to explode at the speed drops

50 miles per hour Herc even references this by saying dude be like my Keanu man

number 74 the game book loot item features a reference to the original Far

Cry game the items description reads in this riveting juice apart adventure your

choices determine if Jack Carver successfully escapes the deadly island

to dr. Krieger which if you accidentally clicked on this video and skipped the

first 10 minutes somehow it's pretty much the whole narrative to the original

game number 75 the knockoff GPS loot item has a description that reads a

cheap copy of an el carro handheld navigation device comes pre-loaded with

a map of rook island wherever the hell that is

spoiler alert rook island is the setting of Far Cry 3 number 76

another interesting loot item from Far Cry 4 is them named Wahine a hula girl

doll with her head resembling that of bars the murderers weirdo from Far Cry 3

God is a little metatextual orgy isn't it number 77 in a cave

located to the south of Varsha kata known as Galan's a jaw players can find

two tables covered in dozens of gold chalices accompanied by the skeletal

remains of an unlucky soul clutching a large gold chalice heavily implying his

failure to pass the final test for those in search of the supernaturally extended

lifespan you know like the end of the Last Crusade number 78 one of the rare

loot items the players of Far Cry 4 can find is a monkey's paw the description

of this creepy artifact states that it grants the bearer three wishes and

urgently tells the owner to discard it this is a reference to the monkey's paw

a short horror story written by w WJ cubes in 1902 but if you recognize that

not from the book it's also been in the Simpsons so number 79 one of the weirder

loot items we found in the game is the photo of a dwarf - the items description

reads photo of a naked dwarf winter isn't the only thing coming

referencing the frequently stated slogan of Game of Thrones and possibly

suggesting if somehow stumbled on a photograph of a naked Tyrion Lannister

hubba-hubba number 81 interesting piece of dialogue that can be heard from

villagers when you save them for Bacon's forces is that clear could quickly

that really got out of hand this is almost an exact quote from the iconic

comedy movie and command boy that escalated quickly I mean that really got

out of hand fast number 81 in another moment pagan min wonders aloud whether

or not he could improve his global image with celebrity endorsements mentioning

Dennis Rodman and David Beckham he also mentioned how the dictator of

Turkmenistan got JLo to sing him happy birthday

referring to the controversy that arose when Jennifer Lopez agreed to perform at

the birthday party of gubin Cooley Berdimuhamedov the despotic leader of

Turkmenistan widely considered to be the most isolated state after North Korea

Lopez later stated that she would not have performed for him had she known

about the country's dreadful human rights record Google JLo Google used

Google number eighty to the radio in far cry 4 is a source of never-ending

amusement often making reference to real world events and trends at one point you

can hear the DJ Robby ray Rana talking about twerking on radio freaka rats

twerking everybody man this game really had its finger on the pulse number 83

while talking about pagan mins heroin filled planes rabbir a Rana mentions the

names Walter White Tony Montana and Kim Jong hoon most people alive all know

Walter white as the main character from Breaking Bad Tony Montana as our

Pitino's character in the iconic gangster movie Scarface and Kim jong-un

is donald trump's on-again off-again love interest number 84 at one point in

the game you can hear rabbir a Ron and mocking pagan mint regime with a line

I'll let you finish this is a reference to Kanye West's hilarious and extremely

rude stage a mage and while Taylor Swift accepting the award for Best Female

Video at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards shockingly The Living Goddess that is

Jennifer Lawrence never get to mention which is you know I mean it's fine just

seems odd not to talk about it number 85 in February of 2016 ubisoft unleashed

Far Cry primal which is kind of like a prequel to the Far Cry series when I say

it's kind of a prequel I mean it's at roughly 12,000 years

before hence Far Cry primal the game received fairly positive reviews Anubis

off later stated had actually sold better than expected becoming the

best-selling game of February 2016 in the United States number 86

as mentioned Far Cry primal is set in prehistoric Europe

around about 10,000 BC if I'm guessing in an area known as ad and New River

known in the game as autos in what is now Central Europe

I hear it's lovely this time of year 12,000 years ago

number 87 as you can imagine researching for a game like Far Cry primal was much

more difficult than most games since its set at a time period we actually know

very little about the brace toric era came before the invention of writing

systems so there's obviously no contemporary records of what life was

like for ancient humans as such the team behind Far Cry primal consulted with

prehistory experts who provided the information in science the artists

needed to craft designs foretold weapons and clothing number 88 setting the game

in 10,000 BC also presented a challenge when it came to language the creators of

Far Cry primal toyed with the idea of having characters speak in a primitive

version of English in the game but predictably this didn't really fit in

with the game settings as such the team worked with language experts to craft 3

fiction languages based on the ancient proto indo-european language the

ancestor of most of the world's most common languages number 89 the setting

of Far Cry primal is home to three tribes the peaceful wenja of which the

player character took car is a member and hostile tribes of the jam and the is

ela the udam are a group of cannibalistic Neanderthals they sound

nice whereas the asilah the only Homo sapiens in the game are far more

advanced with stronger and more sophisticated technology only the winter

and autumn use the word a Zilla which is a simplified version of his he lacks the

words of the easy legue to refer to themselves

his hill axe means the Masters so yeah they're snobs basically number 90 the

Azula built bloody man stones are likely an easter egg referring to Stonehenge

both structures look incredibly alike and fulfill the same purposes in the

game the blushy man stones are used for sacrificial purposes and even today

Stonehenge is the location of various rituals number 91 there's a rock inside

warrant is issued against the cult leader Joseph seed sort of ridiculous

name when government officials which includes the player character known as

the junior deputy arrives takes him into custody the group reacts with surprise

surprise violence and the player is drawn into an armed conflict with the

cult along a number of Allied hub County residents

number 99 far cry 5 is notable in that it's the very first game in the

franchise to feature a fully customizable protagonist players can

also choose to make their character not a white guy which is ridiculously still

relatively uncommon in the gaming industry it's coming from a white guy

very first game in the franchise to feature operational planes within the

open-world previous games have had other forms of aircraft such as the buzzer but

those aren't planes silly

somewhat predictably far cry 5 has come under fire for positioning its

antagonist as radical Christian fanatics prompting a number of groups to suggest

that the game is anti-christian and petraeus conservatives in a negative

light I mean maybe actually it's just showing

cults in a negative light cuz on the whole that can't be quite negative but
