      God I hope not.

    •  

      No, although you can try a VPN workaround but it's not great and barely works with many.

      Nah not even ps now or xbox cloud gaming is.

      geforce now is coming out soon though so should be good.
      Need pretty good internet though.

      •  

        Xbox cloud is available in preview.

        •  

          As well as geforce now

          •  

            @Topdog: I wanna know why I'm renting to stream from the cloud when I should be able to stream straight from my home pc..

            •  

              @justtoreply: You can stream from your Xbox to a mobile device with the Xbox app

          •  

            @Topdog: GeForce now will begin Beta in November. You can go to the pentanet (Australian partner) to do some quests to qualify for an invite to the beta when it opens.

    Not available for pre download for PS4 on ps store?

    •  

      I think so too. I couldn’t.

    Bought it yesterday since it was cheap.
    Somehow feels like a step backwards compared to #3?
    Three years since release and still full of bugs and glitches, and probably the worst NPCs in any game I've played - every single person friend or foe is a complete moron

    •  

      Yeah it was definitely a downgrade from #3 but i mostly played it just to get the plat trophy on ps4 so i didn't care lol

    •  

      Co-op’s pretty great, though. :-)

      I felt like this game was on the precipice of telling trump voters how dumb they are, until they realised how much less money they’d make.
      Like it’s creative vision was initially awesome about its fight against American based conspiracy groups until the board directors got involved.
      Ps the game is still fun but I never bothered finishing it due to the story.

        Agreed, I never finished it because the story just didn't grab me. And I've finished 3, 4 and Blood Dragon at least a couple times each. Just feel like they dropped the storytelling ball with 5 and it didn't live up expectations. It certainly had potential.

        We can access mods on this cant we?

        Im gonna download it just because i saw those goldeneye 64 original mod for it.

        •  

          The Goldeneye arcade maps were made on the PS4 version of the game so were only available for PS4 players and were taken down by Ubisoft :(

          If it was PC version they could just share the save file for it but being PS4 it's now locked to whoever managed to download it before it was taken down.

      •  

        You did yourself a favour by not finishing it.
        It had one of the most rage inducing cop-out endings of anything I've ever played. I immediately uninstalled and have never touched it since.

      And it's very repetitive so bloody repetitive !!

          Nintendo games don't often have that problem.

  •  

    Pretty bland game and it has some frikkin weird controller issues on PC. Half the time when I play I can't descend in the helicopter, same with reverse in cars (the option is literally not there in controls). Other times I play the controller setting is available again.

    FarCry fans in Melbourne might be interested to learn that Zero Latency have adapted FC3 to their system… so if you've ever wanted to be in the game, it'd be worth checking out.

    I haven't had a chance yet.

    Loved FC4 & Blood Dragon, couldn't buy into the setting of 5 no matter how hard I tried. It seemed quite popular though.
