The ole ****ty brown and gunmetal gray color palette. 

 

The true war is on color and vibrancy. 

Have you ever been to war, then how do you know it isn't brown? I do know many people have described it as being ****ty.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

See, back in 'Nam...

 

No, I got nothing on that. 


И погибе Српски кнез Лазаре,
И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

For just a micro-second I thought Katphood was killing Arcade from FO:NV. :D

 

...the sepia filter. I like sepia as an effect but when/if it's an entire game I start to get a bit annoyed. It depends how extreme it is tho. I don't care about bright over-coloring all the time, either, but anything that's "on" all the time becomes dull or annoying. I like a game to have a lot of different color palettes/lighting filters, like in real life.

 

Only desert I've been to was mostly sand with green scrub, and thus felt more like being snow-blinded. Also, even in a desert or in war, on a clear mid-day, at least the sky is still blue-ish. If there isn't tons of air pollution at least. Sepia filters do not differentiate.

FC 2 can be rather colorful when it wants to. It ... Doesn't most of the time. Because brown was cool. It works reasonably well for the game tho.

I'll go to bat for Far Cry 2. There were definite strands of Chaos Theory DNA in it (unsurprising, given that it was directed by Clint Hocking as well) and I think the repetitiveness it got criticised for probably had more to do with lack of time if anything, something that also seems to be reflected by much of the voice acting that just screams "placeholder" to me.

 

Plus, if I ever decided to pick up Far Cry 5 at some point, I'm going to miss all the gross healing animations Far Cry 2 had:

 

 

Let's also hear it for this post in the comments for that video:

 

 

 

I can see it right now
Doctor: "So have you had any major medical procedures in the last year? "
Guy: "Well I guess i pulled a nail out of my hand, and carved a bullet out of my thigh with a knife.."
Doc: "Umm I'm gonna stop you right.." 
G: "Or all those fractures i shoved back into place and sorta hoped for the best, also I pulled a 18 inch piece of metal wire out of my knee, oh yea, not to mention all those third degree burns, but i think pulling the piece of rebar out of my side takes the cake"
Doc: "...Linda, cancel my 2 o'clock, I'm going to be very busy. "

The sky isn't even blue in those screenshots.

 

*sulks*

:biggrin:

 

It was mostly cloudy/overcast in the first (fight started out blue-sunny and the clouds rolled in during the fight) and raining in the 2nd. ;P

 

In truth that's probably one of the things I like about the game - the zillions of filters they use. The color never seems to stay the same for longer than a minute as the day goes by. Either because of area, weather, or time of day Including sepia dust-storms). Although they do often seem to prefer the overcast/hazy look. And the PC versions has a bit more yellow-green forest filtering certain times of day than the console had, which kinda annoys me.

I never understood why Mike will happily have sex with anyone except for SIE. People have joined the VCI to get into her pants.

The more I think about it, the more I wonder why they put in these intermediate steps during camping, like making them appear (for 2 seconds) with food stuck to their hands or stacked up in the tent. Seems to be no point to it, just don't pop them into the scene at all, like they do in some other situations, since the player can't see anyway? (unless one is using a mod to cheat-view with Ansel.... :p )
