101 Facts About Far Cry


greetings mother of actors my name’s Sam
yep still is and today I’m going to be talking to you all about the uber
popular video game series known as Far Cry yes the Far Cry games have taken us
to paradise only to make us realize that paradise is
a dangerous terrifying hellscape filled with trigger-happy sociopaths and fishes
wild animals for the taste for human flesh and it’s just really muggy I mean
just super humid but what viral video is referenced repeatedly in the series what
did JLo do to get shaded in Far Cry 4 why not have a gettin up howl up above
and exactly how much you liked all those references in Easter eggs because I’m
warning you now there’s a lot of them in this one but anyway I digress
2 out of 3 those questions are going to be answered so strapped into your buzzer
fly off to a five-star hotel on a neighboring island away from all the
murder and prepare yourself for 101 fact about far cry number 1 far cry is across
media franchise which centers around a core series a first-person shooter video
games all of which have been published by Ubisoft a company which in the course
of researching this video I have discovered it’s correctly pronounce
Ubisoft by everyone except French speakers who instead pronounce it
Ubisoft no Morgan no new moroder each game focuses on a separate narrative
that is canonically distant and unconnected to the other games in the
series sort of like if American Horror Story was a video game series and also
like American Horror Story it would be much better with Jessica Lange in it
seriously get her back number 3 however the Far Cry games do share strong
environmental and gameplay themes placing the player in a wide explorable
world in which they fight against despots dictators and other varieties of
douchebag each world is also home to wild animals
that can be used for the players own ends or they may just attack and kill
you it’s us all them folks better be damned
number 4 the games of the Far Cry series have been generally very well received
critically and a considered commercial successes figures from Ubisoft indicate
lifetime sales of the Far Cry franchise in excess of 20 million units
number 5 the first game simply titled Far Cry was released in March of 2004
and was developed by a German video game a software developer called Crytek
published by Ubisoft I know what you’re thinking no not that thing don’t worry
about that happens to everybody I mean that Crytek may sound like a very
sad company but after significant research I can confirm they’re just a
tech company with a misleading name number six the gang was originally
created by Crytek to show off their fancy new CryEngine software which again
sounds like a very sad game engine as such the game started life as a short
unplayable tech demo called exile dinosaur Island which featured a variety
of dinosaurs roaming across an island landscape the graphics looked laughably
dated now but in 2001 they were pants ruining Li realistic number 7 eventually
the project had been looked into the game now recognizable as the original
Far Cry set on a number of mysterious Islands far cry follows the story of ex
military servicemen Jack Carver who’s searching for missing journalist he was
escorting before their boat was destroyed by mercenaries a hater when
that happens makes my commute a nightmare number 8 there is however a
degree of inconsistency regarding Carver’s military service you see in the
original Far Cry it was established that he was an Army Special Forces soldier
but in Far Cry instincts it states that he was a u.s. Navy officer either Carver
followed a very unique and convoluted military career path the Jack Carver in
the original game is a different Jack Carver to the one in instincts or it’s
just a genuine mistake and I’m reading into it far too much number nine at the
end of the original far cry the gunshot sound you hear from the Desert Eagle
that Jack Carver uses to execute Harlan Doyle is exactly the same as the noise
created by the p9p in the first-person shooter game perfect dark zero
did you think we wouldn’t notice huh what do you take us for idiots
number 10 despite the name it’s given in the game call it rhymes the m4 assault
rifle embark fight is not actually an m4 at all genuine emboss have a removal
carry handle which is attached to the weapon with two prominent screw knobs
screw knobs at the rifle and far cry conspicuously lacks the m4 scene in the
game appears to be a colt model 727 did you think we wouldn’t notice guys number
11 within four months of release far cry
has sold over seven hundred and thirty thousand units
mmm that’s a lot of Units number 12 however
far crimes release was not without controversy upon the release of the
game’s demo version in March 2004 a German federal agency that’s responsible
for censoring material allegedly harmful to young people it has a really long
German name I can’t be bothered to attempt to pronounce it’s that by the
way declared that the violence in the game was too high even for adult and
quickly index the demo the full version had most of that violence but
nevertheless received and not suitable for under 18s rating Oh Germany its 2004
well it was 2004 now it’s 2018 grow up number 13 for some bizarre reason
there’s an english-language German movie based on the original Far Cry game
titled simply Far Cry the film stars German actor til Schweiger
and his directed by German filmmaker over ball who was infamous for creating
some of the worst films ever made and then boxing critics when it
afterwards that’s real by the way look it up predictably the film was not well
received in fact IDN of all people even went so far as to warn auditors to avoid
it at all costs okay I kind of make me want to watch it even more now number
fourteen after the first game Ubisoft obtained the rights to the Far Cry
franchise and since then most of the development of the other games have been
handled by Ubisoft Montreal in Canada Fairborn and that’s all the French be
great ECC I know good night everybody number 15 far cry 2 was released in
October 2008 representing a darker more realistic direction for the series the
game which takes place in an unnamed Wartell African country is more
character-driven than the original with a huge map covered in jungles deserts
and serve Anna’s number 16 the story of Far Cry 2 is heavily inspired by heart
of darkness a novella written by Polish British novelist Joseph Conrad in 1899
which follows the story of an ill-fated voyage up the Congo River deep into
Central Africa much like the book that games themes
were romp around violence insanity and moral gray areas hey do you know the
definition of insanity by the way I swear someone told me before but I
couldn’t remember also is a bonus fact for you Apocalypse Now is based on the
same book they go culture number 17 as if that wasn’t enough of a clue the very
last mission is played in an area called heart of darkness
hmm that’s a very nice reference number 18 as part of the marketing for far cry
2 a blog entitled war unlimited my journey through a war zone was created
which featured regular posts from Ruben Alou who can be a journalist at the
player encounters within the game Alou became B’s blog detailed his
investigation into the jackal the game’s principal antagonist spoiler alert it’s
not really a jackal number 19 though the country in which the game takes place
has never explicitly confirmed it’s thought to be based on the landlocked
West African nation of Mali the game features a range of landscapes and
climates typical of Mali as well as architecture inspired by that of the
Dogon people an indigenous Malian ethnic group there’s even a location in the
game called dogon village number 20 the vast majority of the useful firearms in
Far Cry 2 have been reversed putting the ejection port on the left side rather
than the rights this has been done to give players a better view of the
bullets flying out of the ejection port as well as the more visually interesting
moving parts levers and controls usually found on the right side of a gun
why because gun pawn of course number 21 in the Xbox 360 version Far Cry 2 1
achievement is titled dharma llamo Tony moto this is actually a Swahili proverb
which were probably mispronounced entirely that refers to the idea that
serious situations require an equally serious response in the form of strong
leadership and bold decision-making similar to the English expression fight
fire with fire the achievement is unlocked as part of
the game’s main story by reigniting the conflict between the games two competing
factions number 22 oh hey here’s a game theory for you map that some people
believe that the jackal is actually Jack Carver from the original Far Cry game
the characters have similar build similar backgrounds and the simple fact
that the checkol contains the name Jack has also been brought up as evidence not
only that a cutscene from the end of Far Cry instincts shows Doyle sliding a box
over to Jack as payment the contents are never shown but many speculate that the
box contains diamonds hmm number 23 the third installment of
the series Far Cry 3 was released in late 2012 and follows protagonist Jason
Brody who literally has bro in his name and bus’ also save his kidnapped friends
after a group vacation goes entirely boobs up the game was a critical and
commercial success selling over 10 million copies within just one year of
release number 24 however the story wasn’t always about an unlucky group of
friends whose perfect beach vacay it’s ruined by pirates former Far Cry 3
narrative director Raphael van Nierop sated that he and his team planned on
creating a story for the game that would create a single cohesive narrative along
with the previous two titles in order to engender a strong sense of identity for
the Far Cry series and propel it into the future sounds like a great idea I
wonder what happened number 25 however after Van Lee rock left the company
Ubisoft dropped that idea and produced a game with a narrative entirely separate
from its predecessors this did not make Van Leer oper happy van leahrob who
subsequently declared I have no interest in playing far cry anymore
the ICA’s number 26 the game’s leaves writer jeff reeyot Alemu stated that he
intended far cry 3 to be a commentary on what shooting means and what it does to
humanity all I can help you out there Jeff it means humans die number 27 many
people took issue with far cry 3 based on perceived colonial undertones
evidence for the game story of a white guy coming to an island populated by
dark-skinned natives and helping them with all their troubles that they
couldn’t possibly deal with by themselves you know the whole white
Savior thing in response your will and claim that it’s the natives who control
Jason Brody using him as a tool for their own ends not the other way around
number 28 what a Far Cry 3 ‘s and indeed all of
gaming’s most beloved characters is actually one of the game’s principal
antagonists vars however everyone’s favorite mohawk sociopath almost wasn’t
in the game at all early versions of Far Cry 3 instead featured a muscle-bound
body called bull but that plan was jettisoned in favor of ours when voice
actor Michael mando auditioned who impressed the games developers with his
creepy unpredictable energy oh really everyone is usually upset by my creepy
unpredictable energy blah see you’re upset aren’t you
number 29 one of the main features of the game is Jason’s ornate arm tattoo
which fills up as players progress throughout the game however in order to
completely finish the ink you have to go beyond merely guessing all the skill
points and find all the 120 panics scattered across the map the radix are
represented by dots which run the entire length of the tattoo when every relic
has been discovered that isn’t how tattoos work normally but let’s move on
number 30 eagle-eyed and bat-eared players of the Far Cry series will be
acutely aware that the games are filled to the brim with all manner of delicious
references to films TV books songs and even under video games
who’da thorn fit for instance when CIA agent Willis Huntley is preparing to
leave he tells you that he’s joining task force 141 fans of card will notice
that this refers to task force 141 the clues in the name
the multinational special operations unit and main protagonists of call of
duty modern warfare 2 number 31 another videogame nod can be found in The Lost
expeditions DLC when Jason travels to an abandoned military silo and finds
documents marked with the Abstergo logo from artisans Creed as well as a faded
Abstergo logo on the wall just to make sure you’ve got it
number 32 not only that there’s also a letter which references genetic memory
and edom the letter also contains an elevator access code which is 1 2 2 1 1
2 referring to the 21st of December 2012 which the Mayan supposedly marked as the
apocalypse and the date on which Desmond mild again from a screed saves the
planet from a devastating coronal mass ejection from the Sun number 33 there’s
another moment in which Jason activates the lift and says would you kindly
activate in an Irish action just like I did just then mimicking the character of
that verse from the original BioShock which we may have made a video about
number 34 that’s another point to chase the exclaims thank God there aren’t any
honey badgers down here honey badgers down here there’s no way
this is an accident as it wouldn’t make any sense if Jason wasn’t talking about
the Internet’s favorite mustelid the honey badger honey badger rose to fame
as the subject of a viral video entitled the crazy nasty-ass honey badger which
humorously depicts the honey badger as the furry little four-legged badass that
it is number 35 at one point while Jason is climbing through a missile silo he
says you know I could use a portal right now you know
I could use it in reference to the beloved video game series portal which
shockingly contains spatial portals that are very handy when you don’t want to
climb through a missile silo number 36 if you travel to the rough area around
the coordinates X 6 – oh and Y 5 6 0 you will find yourself on a beach on one of
the northern islands a cursory glance at your surroundings will reveal to dead
people that been hanged from a tree and a man buried up to his neck in the sand
and you can only see his hand interacting with this will earn you
these say hi to the Internet achievement which is a reference to the Far Cry
experience the promotional series starring Christopher mintz-plasse from
Superbad and Michael mando in which McLovin is eventually buried up to his
neck on a beach very similar to this one number 37 not only that the image of a
man buried in the sand in front of two people hanging from a tree one of them
being upside down comes directly from the Far Cry 3 cover art which depicts
exactly the same thing only with var sitting menacingly next to the unlucky
barrack gent number 38 if you go underwater in the sea around the
coordinates X 800 and Y 650 you will find a soldier sitting on a sea floor
hugging a toilet with his head leaning into the bowl
either he’s seasick hungover all he was murdered and placed in this position as
a final humiliation you decide let us know in our fans a youtube poll number
39 in the cave under dr. Alec Earnhardt’s mansion you can find a
briefcase with mr. miyagi written on it near the boat this is a reference to mr.
Miyagi a character from the corrupt you know what if you don’t know who mr.
Miyagi is I just I just feel sorry for you frankly number 40 roughly located
around the coordinates X 7 9 6 + y 6 4 7 there is a large cave containing three
chests one metal and two wooden one of the boxes contained a loot item called
ripped teddy bear and the immediate area is littered with bones this by the way
is all a sly reference – Goldilocks and the three bears number
41 the loot item I just mentioned the ripped teddy bear is itself another
reference my god this game is full of them this items description says the
bear has a musty smell and is missing an eye with stuffing coming through the
seams and crucially has a torn label that reads Bober this is pretty much an
exact description of Bobo the childhood teddy bear that belongs to mr. burns in
the Simpsons episode entitled rosebud the meaning of life memory cards 16
which is located on the South Island makes reference to high quality meth
coming from New Mexico which will hopefully recapture some of the markets
lost to the product coming out of New Mexico hmm what could this be a
reference to well I’ll tell you this is a Nazi uber popular method based TV show
Breaking Bad which is frankly the best TV show of all time come up me countdown
fans number 43 another one of the collectible
memory cards memory card 20 contains information on how to create a drug
called spice which is described as similar to marijuana but with additional
side effects one of which is interstellar travel Wow get me some of
that this is highly reminiscent of the spice melange a narcotic featured in the
book dune that gifts those who ingest it with an extended lifespan and expanded
sensory perceptions number 44 the handbook entry for vices pirates
parodies lyrics from the song Jack Sparrow by Andy samberg’s comedy trio
The Lonely Island the description mentions vasas pirate hordes and instead
of naming Jack Sparrow as the jester of Tortuga dubs vas as the gesture of Rock
Island that’s all otherwise great listen to it
and listen to all the Lonely Island this damn good this is the tale of number 45
at the beginning of the side mission entitled home delivered a villager who
is enlisting your help talks about a sacred pool with ruins at the bottom
describing it as spooky scary stuff like a werewolf bar mitzva that sounds very
racist but sure let’s better move on this is an affectionate nod to the novel
Tea Party song of the same name performed by 30 rock Tracy Morgan for
which he’s apparently received a gold record number 46 in the game’s
introduction right at the start as introductions tend to be Jason can be
seen kicking a coconut tree and catching a falling coconut you can actually go to
this very location which is found on the rock Islands and the coordinates X 4 6 5
y 7 9 3 a little east of well short wreckers
house outpost number 47 the description for the game is master difficulty
setting literally just state for the experiences worse the malaria this is a
reference to the infamous malaria mechanic in the previous game Far Cry 2
number 48 in the mission the Medusa’s call Jason infiltrates a beached vessel
named Medusa which just so happens to be the name of the Beaudry’s by Jack Carver
and Valerie Constantine to reach the island to dr. Krieger in the original
far tried game I feel like naming a ship after a
murderous mythological Greek Gorgon with snake hair it’s just asking for trouble
number 49 there is a warning message that can be found in various places in
Far Cry 3 such as on the alarm for outpost and under the handlebar on jet
skis that reads courtrand playing too much video games may lead to aggressive
behavior handle woodcare up dub is this a mocking parody for misguided moral
Crusaders who believe video games are to blame for bad behavior and children I
hope so because they’re wrong number 50 a few months after the release of Far
Cry 3 Ubisoft released a standalone expansion pack entitled Far Cry 3 Blood
Dragon the game is based on the world of Far Cry 3 but with a whole new story and
a highly stylized neon filled visual theme that’s essentially a parody of so
bad they’re good 80s action films particularly those between Arnold
Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone however the game is set in the
futuristic world of 2007 and follows the story of Rex an American cybernetic
super soldier okay someone had a bit too much of that spice I think number 51 if
you head to the promotional website for blood track and you’ll be greeted by
terrifying the outdated site to protect and garish 80s visuals not only that but
if you went to the Konami code which true gamers will know is up up down down
left right left right B a your cursor will change into a targeting reticule
enabling you to shoot at and destroy every component on the site which
ultimately reveals a picture of an Omega 4 soldier the primary enemy faction in
Blood Dragon number 52 the next installment in the main series entitled
Far Cry 4 was released in November of 2014 the game uses a heavily modified
version of the same engine used in Far Cry 3 and like its predecessors was both
a critical and commercial success good for you far cry 4 good for you number 53
the game follows the story of a Jay Galle
the American who has traveled to his fictional homeland of kirat to spread
his deceased mother’s ashes sadly for AJ but happily for gamers who
want to play on through any explosion film action caper the boss on which he
is traveling is attacked and things to generally go south and worse from there
number 54 AJ is motivated at least initially but the death of a relative in
his case his mother this appears to be a favourite Darris a overused plot element
of Ubisoft as the main characters in several other Ubisoft titles are subject
to this trope including Aiden Pearce from watchdogs pretty much every single
protagonist from Assassin’s Creed and of course Jason Brody from Far Cry 3 number
55 Mike Far Cry 3 was originally going to be direct sequel to Far Cry 2 Far Cry
4 was really going to be direct sequel to har Cry 3 with me so far good as a
result the game’s fascinating baddie pagan min didn’t exist in early
development again however this plan was ultimately scrapped and pagan min was
brought to life in all his fashionably murderous glory
number 56 the game setting of karate is a fictional Himalayan country based on
places like Nepal and Tibet exaggerating elements from such regions into a wild
rugged and mountainous landscape that offers a great degree of center
verticality than other previous Far Cry games number 57 in order to help form a
coherent and believable culture for Kerr at the game’s creators sent a team to
Nepal to gain first-hand experience with the region when the team returned and
shared their experiences from the trip the design of far cry 4 shifted away
from the Nepalese inspired Civil War to a focus on interactions with interesting
characters number 58 as with previous games in the series the appearance of
wild animals is very important – far cry 4 one feature that the game’s greatest
were adamant about including was the ability to ride elephants which I
personally think should appear in more games in letting a rideable elephant in
GTA I don’t know the sims Oh God what I wouldn’t give number 59 when Troy
Baker audition for the role of pagan min which he did and successfully got he
opted to ignore the script and instead threatened an assistant as part of an
emphatic improvised performance apparently this was exactly what that
team was looking for they must have really hated that assistant number 60
hilariously it’s possible to complete the game in a matter of minutes without
cheating simply by doing nothing at the start of the game when you were in pagan
mins palace min asked you to wait at which
you are supposed to run away however if you actually obey men like the cock you
are and wait he will return and take AJ to scatter his mother’s ashes peacefully
and the shrine to Lakshman and min you then exit in a helicopter as the credits
roll to the sound of should I stay or should I go by the clash number 61 if he
thought Far Cry 3 was full of references yeah it is
far cry 4 is no different let’s start off with a reference to the good book no
not ready player one I mean the Bible the character of long Ennis gets his
name from the legendary figure from Christian mythology sent her up in the
Roman soldier who pierced you to suicide with alarms but the similarities extend
beyond just a shared name both have been soldiers who turned to religion after
committing acts a questionable morality in fact the biblical long Ennis later
became a saint number 62 there are also a number of
similarities between long Ennis and Joshua Milton Blahyi a Liberian warlord
known for committing various atrocities during the first Liberian Civil War in
the early 90s who was also known by the nickname general butt naked owing to his
bizarre habit of going into battle wearing only shoes like loneliness ye
was responsible for various war crimes before an abrupt conversion to
Christianity and hopefully clothing number 63 kirat International Airport is
modeled directly on Tenzing Hillery Airport a real-life airport located in
eastern Nepal the layout of the airport buildings is strikingly similar and the
runway even mimics Tenzing Hillary’s infamous sloping runway which sounds
incredibly dangerous nintendo64 the ajm’ 9 handgun found in Far Cry 4 is a nod to
Robocop’s Auto 9 a modified beretta 93r assigned from just looking pretty much
exactly the same as the metalman signature gun Robocop is made in the
remains of police officer Alex J Murphy get it Alex J Murphy a JM it’s a solid
ref guy’s number 65 like why is the HS 77 which looks very similar to the n7 12
sidearm is a reference to Star Wars not only does the weapon bear a strong
visual resemblance for Han Solo’s blaster it’s a combination of Han Solo’s
initials and 77 the year in which the original Star Wars film was released
number ship th the GPS locator given to AJ by long Ernest in his first mission
is in fact the same locator from far cry 2 but with a smashed screen
first of all problems AJ now get out and start killing people number 67 the
hypodermic needle that can be found across the island has a description that
reads filled with glowing liquid if this were a failed underwater utopia
you wouldn’t think twice about jamming this into your arm this is not only true
but also a reference to plasmin injections from the original BioShock
game number 68 there’s a hut in VAR cry 4 which is occupied by several dead
bodies one of which has a red plastic bucket on his head and an arrow stuck in
his knee this is a double-whammy reference to the popular Skyrim exploit
of placing buckets on people’s heads and of course the famous line spoken by
numerous guards who claimed that they too had a past as an adventurer until
the sad day when they took an arrow to the knee made it’s an occupational
hazard of adventuring you knew what you were getting into number 69 during the lost and confused side
mission AJ is given a truck by Yogi and Reggie which they call the oculus spliff
an obvious nod to the oculus rift over your headset that we covered extensively
in our video about virtual reality which you should totally check out it’s not
enough you did the first time number 70 someone behind the scenes at far cry
must really love honey badgers because not only were they referenced back in
Far Cry 3 the fighters were going to also introduces huntable animals in Far
Cry 4 and they are little owls number 71 not only that the aforementioned viral
video the crazy nasty-ass honey badger is referenced by pagan mins fabulous
former trailer muumuu chiffon who rightly claims that honey badgers don’t
get number 72 there’s a memo posted on the small Hut near the Kings bridge that
reads as follows inspector welcome to your new position
at Kings bridge border checkpoint stamp passport entry visa and return documents
to entrant entry is restricted to karate citizens only deny all foreigners glory
to correct this is a reference to the popular indie game by the name of papers
please first mission of which has these almost exact instructions number 73 in
Herc’s last mission the player has to rescue him by hijacking a truck and
driving it through a series of waypoints without dipping below a certain speed or
the truck would explode gosh that sounds familiar
I wonder why well here’s why it’s one big reference to the movie speed
starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in which a bomb planted on a bus is set
to explode at the speed drops 50 miles per hour Herc even references
this by saying dude be like my Keanu man number 74 the game book loot item
features a reference to the original Far Cry game the items description reads in
this riveting juice apart adventure your choices determine if Jack Carver
successfully escapes the deadly island to dr. Krieger which if you accidentally
clicked on this video and skipped the first 10 minutes somehow it’s pretty
much the whole narrative to the original game number 75 the knockoff GPS loot
item has a description that reads a cheap copy of an el carro handheld
navigation device comes pre-loaded with a map of rook island wherever the hell
that is spoiler alert rook island is the setting
of Far Cry 3 number 76 another interesting loot item from Far
Cry 4 is them named Wahine a hula girl doll with her head resembling that of
bars the murderers weirdo from Far Cry 3 God is a little metatextual
orgy isn’t it number 77 in a cave located to the south of Varsha kata
known as Galan’s a jaw players can find two tables covered in dozens of gold
chalices accompanied by the skeletal remains of an unlucky soul clutching a
large gold chalice heavily implying his failure to pass the final test for those
in search of the supernaturally extended lifespan you know like the end of the
Last Crusade number 78 one of the rare loot items the players of Far Cry 4 can
find is a monkey’s paw the description of this creepy artifact states that it
grants the bearer three wishes and urgently tells the owner to discard it
this is a reference to the monkey’s paw a short horror story written by w WJ
cubes in 1902 but if you recognize that not from the book it’s also been in the
Simpsons so number 79 one of the weirder loot items we found in the game is the
photo of a dwarf – the items description reads photo of a naked dwarf
winter isn’t the only thing coming referencing the frequently stated slogan
of Game of Thrones and possibly suggesting if somehow stumbled on a
photograph of a naked Tyrion Lannister hubba-hubba number 81 interesting piece
of dialogue that can be heard from villagers when you save them for Bacon’s
forces is that clear could quickly that really got out of hand this is
almost an exact quote from the iconic comedy movie and command boy that
escalated quickly I mean that really got out of hand fast number 81 in another
moment pagan min wonders aloud whether or not he could improve his global image
with celebrity endorsements mentioning Dennis Rodman and David Beckham he also
mentioned how the dictator of Turkmenistan got JLo to sing him happy
birthday referring to the controversy that arose
when Jennifer Lopez agreed to perform at the birthday party of gubin Cooley
Berdimuhamedov the despotic leader of Turkmenistan widely considered to be the
most isolated state after North Korea Lopez later stated that she would not
have performed for him had she known about the country’s dreadful human
rights record Google JLo Google used Google number eighty to the radio in far
cry 4 is a source of never-ending amusement often making reference to real
world events and trends at one point you can hear the DJ Robby ray Rana talking
about twerking on radio freaka rats twerking everybody man this game really
had its finger on the pulse number 83 while talking about pagan mins heroin
filled planes rabbir a Rana mentions the names Walter White Tony Montana and Kim
Jong hoon most people alive all know Walter white as the main character from
Breaking Bad Tony Montana as our Pitino’s character in the iconic
gangster movie Scarface and Kim jong-un is donald trump’s on-again off-again
love interest number 84 at one point in the game you can hear rabbir a Ron and
mocking pagan mint regime with a line I’ll let you finish this is a reference
to Kanye West’s hilarious and extremely rude stage a mage and while Taylor Swift
accepting the award for Best Female Video at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards
shockingly The Living Goddess that is Jennifer Lawrence never get to mention
which is you know I mean it’s fine just seems odd not to talk about it number 85
in February of 2016 ubisoft unleashed Far Cry primal which is kind of like a
prequel to the Far Cry series when I say it’s kind of a prequel
I mean it’s at roughly 12,000 years before hence Far Cry primal the game
received fairly positive reviews Anubis off later stated had actually sold
better than expected becoming the best-selling game of February 2016 in
the United States number 86 as mentioned Far Cry primal is set in
prehistoric Europe around about 10,000 BC if I’m guessing
in an area known as ad and New River known in the game as autos in what is
now Central Europe I hear it’s lovely this time of year
12,000 years ago number 87 as you can imagine researching
for a game like Far Cry primal was much more difficult than most games since its
set at a time period we actually know very little about the brace toric era
came before the invention of writing systems so there’s obviously no
contemporary records of what life was like for ancient humans as such the team
behind Far Cry primal consulted with prehistory experts who provided the
information in science the artists needed to craft designs foretold weapons
and clothing number 88 setting the game in 10,000 BC also presented a challenge
when it came to language the creators of Far Cry primal toyed with the idea of
having characters speak in a primitive version of English in the game but
predictably this didn’t really fit in with the game settings as such the team
worked with language experts to craft 3 fiction languages based on the ancient
proto indo-european language the ancestor of most of the world’s most
common languages number 89 the setting of Far Cry primal is home to three
tribes the peaceful wenja of which the player character took car is a member
and hostile tribes of the jam and the is ela the udam are a group of
cannibalistic Neanderthals they sound nice whereas the asilah the only Homo
sapiens in the game are far more advanced with stronger and more
sophisticated technology only the winter and autumn use the word a Zilla which is
a simplified version of his he lacks the words of the easy legue to refer to
themselves his hill axe means the Masters so yeah
they’re snobs basically number 90 the Azula built bloody man stones are likely
an easter egg referring to Stonehenge both structures look incredibly alike
and fulfill the same purposes in the game the blushy man stones are used for
sacrificial purposes and even today Stonehenge is the location of various
rituals number 91 there’s a rock inside the cave known as the twister cave that
is emblazoned with a dye for example of prehistoric cave art known as parietal
art the image depicts a large deer like animals standing on a cliff face looking
up at a strange circular symbol that bears a striking resemblance to the
Ubisoft logo that’s right it’s another easter egg guys number 92
what are the most stupidly adorable characters you can encounter in Far Cry
primal is Turkey a prehistoric gentleman who’s fetching headband in
twisting accent and name although a striking similarity to those of her a
character in Far Cry 4 is later revealed that hurts family is indeed descended
from our key number 93 in your first mission with her key there’s also a
pretty conspicuous reference to Assassin’s Creed Okies desperate to
learn how to fly like a bird and ask you to collect a range of items including
bird feathers deer shoes will allow him to soar like an eagle when you bring him
the things he requests you watch him as he jumps off a cliff only to fall a
considerable distance down onto what a pile of hay of course mimicking the leap
of faith to signature move of the series you can even hear the famous leap of
faith Eagle call as he plummets to earth like the adorable little moron he is
number 94 there’s another Assassin’s Creed reference literally engraved in
the Far Cry primal world itself there’s an area in the southern part of the map
in which the Assassin’s Creed like oh it’s etched onto the cross into a forest
clearing the symbol is even viewable on the mini-map number 95 another amusing
Far Cry primal Easter Egg can be found in the lake of the southwest of the map
diving under water in this lake reveals a sunken wooden contraption that looks a
lot like the iconic cards used for the denizens of bedrock in the Flintstones
number 96 in the northeast section of arras near the big tower fort base there
is a cave behind a waterfall that contains the skeleton of a Blood Dragon
accompanied by several ex throwing in a vibrant neon purple this is a ref to the
aforementioned retro futuristic Far Cry 3 spin-off Far Cry 3 : Blood Dragon as
if the Easter Egg wasn’t obvious enough when you find the skeleton you agreed
you’d by the sound of some delightfully 80s synth and drums number 97 the Far
Cry franchise is soon to welcome the latest game in the series titled Far Cry
5 it’s due any minute now the game is set in the US this time in the state of
Montana in a fictional region known as Hope County marking it the first time a
Far Cry game has been set in North America
number 98 the story of Far Cry 5 centers around an American doomsday cult called
the project at Eden’s gate which is led by Joseph seed and his siblings succeed
after which is exposing the group’s nefarious activities is uploaded to
Internet as I say up north an arrest warrant is issued against the cult
leader Joseph seed sort of ridiculous name when government officials which
includes the player character known as the junior deputy arrives takes him into
custody the group reacts with surprise surprise violence and the player is
drawn into an armed conflict with the cult along
a number of Allied hub County residents number 99 far cry 5 is notable in that
it’s the very first game in the franchise to feature a fully
customizable protagonist players can also choose to make their character not
a white guy which is ridiculously still relatively uncommon in the gaming
industry it’s coming from a white guy I don’t worry anybody I think it might
be number 100 now far cry 5 will be the very first game in the franchise to
feature operational planes within the open-world previous games have had other
forms of aircraft such as the buzzer but those aren’t planes silly somewhat predictably far cry 5 has come
under fire for positioning its antagonist as radical Christian fanatics
prompting a number of groups to suggest that the game is anti-christian and
petraeus conservatives in a negative light
I mean maybe actually it’s just showing cults in a negative light cuz on the
whole that can’t be quite negative but hey we’re all on our own journeys man
that’s just chill and play video games together anyway that was 101 facts about
far cry I hope you enjoyed yourself and learned something don’t you let me know

me know in the comments down below and tell you while you’re here watch one of

  8. Luke Van Rooyen

    I know these 101 facts videos are scraping the bottom of the barrel but fact 1 isn't a far cry fact, as its as much of far cry fact as a tom clancy fact. Number 22 isn't even a fact.

  17. randomeuropeanguy

    I thought far cry 2 was based on an island…….so its not? thats weird

  18. randomeuropeanguy

    death of a relative for AC protagonists…lets see……… AC1 nope he's not, AC4 no not really from what I remember, AC rogue no, AC syndicate no, AC brotherhood no, AC revelations no. however AC2, AC3, AC origins depends on how you look at it. with watch dogs, watch dogs one is yes, but watch dogs 2 no. far cry 1 no, far cry 2 no. for honor, no. it seems to me like the vast majority of ubisoft titles protagonists are NOT motivated by death of relatives

  19. Daniel Grayson

  24. FloodtheEarth

    "Screw nobs" seriously? Do you know what a bipod is..? and I honestly hope you're aware of who and what Crytek actually is. Not just a "sad game developer". Maybe you should do 101 points of research before you make a video.

  25. Daevi1

  32. Darch&PaintcanPlay 92

    Always thought the SPICE refrence was pretty much what it says on the tin, A synthetic form of marijuana that got super popular in UK prisons before finding its way to the street and causing fits in people who stopped taking it before it was made illegal a year or two ago.

  45. Mr.Edgelord 9000

    Far cry 5 is pay to win .. And its a fucking single player game . did you know thats there is micro transactions called silver bars that lets you buy everything in the game. Or you can get 8$ per body to grind for a 7k gun or you can spend 1k for rockets for your helicopter (you also have to buy the helicopter) . your just as big of an idiot as the enemy's are in far cry 5 if you buy this pay to win single player bs. This is coming from someone who loves the far cry series but now its shit . its funny how they never told anybody about this before hand xD . fuck this shit….

    Breaking Bad really is the best TV show of all time, no doubt.

  47. Jared Miles

  74. Vilhelm Wideson

    Have I ever told you about the definition of insanity?
    Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. – Albert Einstein

  75. DELTA 5.1

    No 10: It could also be a M723. But definitely a CAR15 not an M4. Same things goes in CSGO for the "M4A1-S", fixed carry handle.

  76. Ridgedog231

    23:33
    Bioshock reference

    I'm french but I call it the way you call it

  79. Corey S

    @4:24 the games release was not without some what ?!? LMAO

  80. The Gaming Crow

    Uwe Boll (worst director ever) and Till Schweiger (one of the worst actors ever – if you saw a movie he's playing in, you'll instantly forget him (he was in the second Tomb Raider movie with Angelina Jolie… forgot about that? see? )) can only result in an awful movie. That's 102. 😉

  81. FART NOISES

    Left for the honey badger vid..

  82. Fearless Disaster

    The Far Cry dynamic would be good for a Green Arrow year One game

    Sam, have i ever told the defenition of insanity?

  84. G_Boy

  85. 卐Zoomer

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over and over again, expecting something different to happen.

  86. Dimitar Bujaroski

    The Macedonian flag in far cry1

  87. Patrick Geer

    Christianity, a mythical religion? A little insensitive don't you think? Considering the fact that it's the largest religion in the planet, why don't you show a bit of respect?

  88. Tech FiZz

    farcry 2 is based in kenya i live in africa so i would know

  89. Izaac Goudreau Reloaded

    For number 2, actually there is kind of farcry 3 linked to farcry 4, because eventually in farcry 4 you run into Willis again which says something about a guy in a different island trying to save his friends.

  90. Roland McRae

    Why can’t I play the Astrid incident in Far cry 3??

  91. Rondo Machete

    Vass is without a shadow of a doubt gamings greatest badass bad guy.

  92. Rondo Machete

  93. Rondo Machete

    Why no mention of crazy village woman who comes out with crazy tails in Far Cry 4
