FFFFFFF! Might have to rebuy this so I don't have to use uPlay.


UPlay is required for all versions.

I don't know why people wants to ditch uPlay, I bought the game on steam and it doesn't bother me one bit. Never had an issue.

I don't see any need for it, nor does it particularly bother me. It's much less annoying than GFWL for starters.

Apparently on launch day it locked some people out of playing from server load, and I've seen it go down since then. It's not exactly reliable under load.

That said, I don't mind it at all.

That is only for the multiplayer side of things. You switch it to offline mode, like you can with Steam and it runs fine.

Shakey, you sound like you're really enjoying this game! 48 hours?!

And does it still run like crap on PC? I have a decent machine and the framerate is all over the place, even after the 400MB patch.

New to series, just got it and finished my first few quests; questions:

1) Is there a "quest log" of sorts, or is it one quest at a time (including side stuff) where I'm looking to turn in my first hunting quest but will accepting a new one cancel this? Is there a menu I am missing to keep track of this?

2) I am looking to turn in a side quest to an NPC, but he is not located/showing up on the map to mark as a waypoint (Dr. Earnheardt).


I'm dumb :rolleyes:

Will there be any DLC for Far Cry 3? I am aware of the pre-order "DLC" missions "Lost Expeditions" and the PS3 exclusive "High Tides" Co-Op DLC, but will there be more? Hoping for many more missions, both side and story related, possibly an island addition? Is the series known for this type of content?

I ask because I am taking FC3 super slow, doing EVERY side mission, crafting / hunting constantly, collectible collecting zone-by-zone in almost a "WoW-like" fashion of quest hubs (some of you should understand the analogy). Currently only 5 radio towers and 6 or 7 outposts with many crafting items approaching or at their max level (no special syringes yet though). Just now going to see Dennis again with only the top half of the north island explored.

@8 hours of play, so yes, super slow and lots of hunting haha

Island addition / expansion DLC please! :)

Could've picked it up in a store but don't want a box or disc.

Just picked this game up last night, it started off pretty slow but it's definitely proving to be a good purchase now. The graphics are superb.
