still playing Wildlands on a regular basis, I'm nowhere near done with the story (about half way through), because I just like driving or flying around the map clearing out enemy bases and checkpoints.
this actually may be the game that portrays, what being CIA's Ground Branch operative is like, most accurately. I find myself leading local guerrillas into battle and relying on them more than on my own team mates (the latter being almost completely useless anyway) almost on every objective.
first I soften the enemy up with a mortar barrage, then I send in a small squad of guerrillas to create a diversion on one flank, and finally conduct a full-on assault from the opposite direction with two other squads. works great every time.
but enough talk, here are some pics.
this was an interesting moment. I had to tail a vehicle without attracting any attention, and it just happened to merge with a cartel convoy delivering drugs somewhere (the vehicle in question is between the truck and the trailing Humvee in the pic). usually I destroy these convoys, but this time I had to restrain myself to not fail the mission, so we drove in a column for a couple of miles, until the target separated from the convoy. I believe this is what they call "emergent gameplay"
also, had to kidnap someone's girlfriend
three girls, one gun. I swear I was gentle,
