Another Power Glove soundtrack would be enough to get me excited.

Blood Dragon was surprisingly fun, but I think the concept only has steam for one game.

I'm going with real.

I think it has more runway if it actually plays more like an 80's action movie than like Far Cry 3.

Now, 80's action movies were actually relatively reserved, but still a bit different than Far Cry 3.

Yep, exactly how I feel. Love Blood Dragon stylistically, but Far Cry 3 combat mechanics != 80's movies. Only complaint I had with the game, that the actual play was totally at odds with the style. But I put that down to it being essentially a Far Cry 3 mod/expansion. Shouldn't be too hard to change, and hopefully that's what they're doing.

Fuck you if it is fake. Blood Dragon is one of my favorite 4 hours of absurdity ever and would love a new one with each new FC.

Wasn't the last one an April Fool's joke as well?

A game based on Vietnam movies like Rambo, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now would be glorious. Place it before Blood Dragon and show the hinted relationship literally bloom on the battlefield.

This seems incredible. Also, that numbering is perfect. Hotline Miami 2 should've gone with the purposefully wrong numbering though, imo, but this suits Blood Dragon perfectly. Will buy.

This would be epic in every way. I hadn't even thought of a Vietnam angle when considering where BD could go next - got my fingers crossed here

I really hope this is real :D

Oh God yes please. Blood Dragon's idea excites me far more than it's actual gameplay.

They should wait for the next Far Cry to come out so the title can be Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon 3: Vietnam War 2.
