Far Cry 4

Recently (24th of December 2014) something in my computer went wrong. Hard drives was suddenly detected as upside down Yen symbols, with a circle on, or as @ @ @ @ in the entire length of the monitor. BIOS was just showing WAIT on the monitors, and nothing ever happened, so it was time to do an upgrade.

For my new system, I ended up with these parts

  • CPU: Intel i7-4790K
  • RAM: 16GB Corsair DDR3 1600MHz
  • GFX: Gigabyte GTX 970 4GB
  • PSU: Corsair CX 750M

With my graphics card, I also got the code for one of 3 games. The games I could chose between was The Crew, Assassins Creed Unity, or Far Cry 4. One game I already got, one game I am not that interested in, and that ended up with me getting Far Cry 4.

One of the impressive things in Far Cry 4, is the size of the map. After spending the first few hours in the game, I still had only uncovered one little part of the map, and was continuing to find new small things to do.

Sadly, even when this game isn’t something that was just released (November 18, 2014), there are still some very annoying bugs in it. One of the bugs is that the connection in co-op can be unstable, and lose connection very easy. And if you stay connected, the friend who got into your game, might not see everything you see. This is one of the biggest problems we had when I was playing with a friend. He could see cars and trucks, and I saw nothing. One time he even saw a convoy we had to destroy, and I could not even see it.

Another thing I found a few time was weapons ending up in strange places, or just jumping around on the ground like if it was possessed.

Here we got a weapon inside a tree, which then was impossible to reach.

Besides those bugs, the game is really great. One of the things that can make you spend so much time in the game, is also the graphics, because… just look at it! Trees look good, water is good, animals look alive and natural, just… look at it!
