Microsoft Reveals ‘Xbox Live Ultimate Sale’

Posted on July 2, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Not to be outdone by Sony’s own online sale, Microsoft has revealed their roster of discounted games for July ’13. Headlining all of this is a massive one day sale on some of 2012’s best games including Far Cry 3,  Max Payne 3, Borderlands 2 and Assassins Creed III. Considering the most expensive of these is $20, and several of them are priced at just $10 – be prepared to empty your wallet. The Bioware games are worth the price of entry alone, you’re guaranteed to get at least a few dozen hours out of them!

If you’re looking to save on some older games on the cheap Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect and Prey are all $5, along with some other vintage 360 titles.

Version tested: PlayStation 3

Now for a game that’s been called Skyrim with guns, what can I really say about Far Cry 3? How about this game is one of the best examples of character development in a game to date! Far Cry as a franchise has always been somewhat lacking, with great ideas and horrendous execution. Far Cry 3 clearly sought to change all of that.

The 2012 Top Five

Posted on January 13, 2013 by Jason Fayta

Editor’s note: Staff at Broken Joysticks will be sharing their top five games, or game related stories, from 2012 throughout the week. We’re starting the feature with the top five from our contributing reviewer, Jason Fayta.

It’s hard to believe 2012 is over, and it’s equally hard to believe we’re already two weeks into 2013. Overall, I found 2012 to be a solid year for releases, but I can’t say there was a title I was completely enamored with, which lead to some difficulty in rounding out my top five releases from the year. However, as I went through my playing history, certain games began to stand out as titles I found most compelling, regardless of their flaws. So, without further ado, the top five…

Far Cry 3 Trailer Takes You To Rook Islands

Posted on August 29, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Far Cry 3 welcomes you to the Rook Islands in this new trailer from Ubisoft. One of the more exciting features about Far Cry 3 that I’m pumped up about is the inclusion of a co-op campaign. Granted it is seperate from the single player campaign, it’s still a great addition to the Far Cry series!

Here is what Ubisoft has to say about Far Cry 3:

“Join Agent Huntley, an ex-CIA operative, for an insider’s tour of the insanity of Far Cry 3. Discover the island’s history. Meet the mysterious and deadly residents. And step into a world of exotic animals and extreme travel.”

Far Cry 3 is set to release November 30th in Europe and December 4th in North America

Posted on May 18, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Far Cry 3 left a pretty big impression on me when I saw it running at last year’s Ubisoft Press Conference at E3. It looks like everyone will be able to get their hands on the game later this summer on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

The multiplayer beta allows up to 16 players to compete in several modes including Deathmatch and the Firestorm mode, a mode based around the game’s fire physics. Ubisoft promises six playable classes will be available in the beta along with dozens of weapons.

There are multiple ways for you to enter the beta. Check them out after the jump.Read More
