Today on Highlight Reel we have weird elbows, sheep glitches, sims beds and much more.
Far Cry 5's latest patch released this week on consoles. Although it addressed a number of minor issues with online multiplayer, mission progression, and overall stability, it doesn’t appear to have addressed one unique and particularly pernicious bug where some players who complete the game get stuck in a…
Video game helicopters are usually difficult to control and not half as enjoyable to fly as they look in real life (or in the movies!). So I want to give a special shout-out to Far Cry 5, which for the first time I can think of in the 3D era has made flying a helicopter fun as hell.
Drive around long enough in Far Cry 5 and you might stumble into an area where strange static comes out of your radio. Stop and listen for a bit and you might even be able to make out voices on the other end. It’s weird and creepy, and has a few players wondering if it might be part of something deeper going on in the…
The more I play Far Cry 5, the less interesting and challenging it becomes. That’s a common problem for a Far Cry game, but I hope it doesn’t remain the status quo.
Today on Highlight Reel we have rocket rides, Far Cry 5 glitches, flying Zelda monsters, and much more!
Far Cry 5 suggests a world on the brink of a violence apocalypse, but the game’s sanitized gameplay and clean-cut power fantasy ultimately ring hollow. If the series wants to make a case for human savagery, it should look back to Far Cry 2, a game that wasn’t afraid to let things break.
Compared with its most recent predecessors, Far Cry 5 makes some big changes to how you upgrade your character. Almost all of those changes are for the better.
Just going by Steam reviews, Far Cry 5 is a game about throwing shovels, petting dogs, and enjoying the Montana countryside. Seems legit.
I don’t think I’ll ever be caught up on all the games I want to play, so these days I’m looking for moments when I can step away and switch to a new game but easily go back in the future. That’s why I just cleared out the western area of Far Cry 5 and have now put it aside.
Today on Highlight Reel we have tons of glitches, devil summoning, fantastic sniper shots, and much more!
Mere days after Far Cry 5 came out, it already had its first player-made battle royale maps in Arcade mode. A week later, there are now heaps of them. They vary in quality, but I’ve come across a few that are legitimately cool.
Okay, okay, it’s time to talk about how Far Cry 5 ends.
Far Cry 5’s first piece of post-launch content went live yesterday. It’s called “Well Done” and it’s about setting animals on fire. Don’t let the name fool you, though. The game’s first live event is way undercooked.
Growing up as a Jewish kid, I had a guilty pleasure. Every Saturday night at midnight, I would close my bedroom door, turn down the sound on my little TV, and sneakily watch Christian rock videos on the religious channel TBN. Lately, I’ve been doing roughly the same thing with Far Cry 5’s cult radio station.
Fun fact: it takes 58:41 to get from the NE of Far Cry 5's map to the SW, walking the entire way. We know this because How Big Is The Map? walked the whole way and kept the clock running.
As fun as Far Cry 5 can be, it’s definitely got its share of bugs. There are looping lines of dialogue, inconsistent enemy behavior, physics glitches, and a few bugs that straight-up break the game. I ran into a funny one of those a few nights ago.
Today on Highlight Reel we have a huge influx of Far Cry clips, mandatory ahoy quotas, magic tricks, and much more!
It started with an abandoned cabin on the western edge of Far Cry 5’s fictional setting of Hope County, Montana. There, players found clues to what they now believe are possible Bigfoot locations. They’ve since set off scouring the world for more clues, desperate to see their belief in the supernatural vindicated.
Far Cry 5 came out last week, and most of Kotaku are playing it. Here’s a collection of our best stories, tweets, and experiences.
