On December 4th on the PC Perspective Live! page we will be streaming some single player game action of the new Far Cry 3.  Far Cry has long been a franchise that includes great gameplay and never before seen graphics technology and the third installment looks to follow that trend!  Early previews of the game have been very exciting!

I was able to be on-time to watch the event live. Sadly, I experienced many technical difficulties in viewing from Twitch and other provider on that I could not enjoy any technical discussions and humour (as well as my name read out loud if I did win any goodies).

As for the game itself, it did not capture my interest as I would have hoped. It felt like a cooperative Left 4 Dead custom campaign in the tropics, which isn't bad of an awful feature. I do enjoy Left 4 Dead 2 well written custom stories and campaigns, which attempts at mimicking a possible zombie survival apocalypse. As for Farcry, perhaps I was expecting more realism and interactive physics within a possible story line.

Currently, not a possible purchase for myself.

I will watch the recorded version of this event when available. Perhaps then, my opinion may change.

Congrats to the winners, which I heard between hick-ups. :)

I won a copy!

From the recorded version, I may enjoy some featured in-game concepts.

When I receive the prize, I will be looking for Co-op players. :)

Anyone up for a serious gamer, you can comment below :)

Great roundup of the game, more tech info than any other review of the game which helps a lot. Loving the game so far, GOTY contender for sure.

Cheers from the UK,

You should get an email this week!

Wow! After listening to the recorded version, I won Far Cry 3 @ 1:00:00!

Ryan > Thanks for trying to pronounce my name. Perhaps I should give you a call and let you practice the pronunciation. The name is not that much foreign since it's a pretty common name in the French communities in Canada and France. Not sure about in USA. :)

Please send me an email for other details.
Thanks again :)

I won the Never Settle bundle! Thanks Ryan and Robert, the stream was awesome! Maybe now is a good time to ask for an upgrade from my HD4850 for Christmas.

whats a good CPU to go with a 7970. im planning to not win it and just buy one for Christmas. I hear a lot of people saying get an i5 2500k beacuse its almost the same performance but much cheaper than an i5 3750k

Thanks PCPer
Got it.
Not a gamer though.

Can I burn this FC3 download manager to DVD, and give it to my Son, with the Serial number.

Will that work, or are there restrictions.
