I seriously think it's physically impossible for me to be more excited for this game. I have never played a Far Cry game (nor do I have any interest), but this standalone DLC looks amazing.

Sooo is it just another shooter but with a different color scheme/art style? I can't really tell the difference in the screens.

So is it still an open world design or is it linear? I'm guessing since it's an XBLA downloadable game, it will be linear and pretty short. But I hope I'm wrong, because this concept is amazing and has the potential to be severely awesome.

I don't care if it ends up being some generic shooter. It is pretty and 80s and I want it.

Man, it's like every thread I go into now has you shitting on the game either directly or passive-agressively. Is there anything you like? It's based on Far CRy 3, of course it's a shooter.

Anywho, this looks cool. Glad Ubi is trying some weird, alternate universe stuff with their DLC of late.

It was a legit question as I don't know anything about it except what I see in those screens. My question was serious, if it's just the same old but with a different style then I don't get the point.

That's awesome! I'm sure the island will be much smaller than the FC3 world, but that also means there could be more awesomeness packed into each and every square foot! I wonder if there will be wildlife (besides blood dragons)?

This makes me wonder why it's even called Far Cry 3. Why not just Blood Dragon? There has to be a story behind this.

I am saying this not having played FC3 yet.
