Anyone seen a preorder for the SE edition anywhere. I need Far Cry 1 so it makes sense.

Lets hope i get my build done by then too

does this actually continue from the previous game (silly question perhaps?), and are they planning on bringing out a demo.. looks good, and hopefully since its on consoles it'l be optimised for weaker hardware (unlike crysis) ... thats my theory anyways.. from the trailers i've seen it looks a bit frantic, and not tactical enough.. plus some of the features are nice, like guns jamming, but then just having them explode... it doesnt really happen... and when the car breaks down, just fixing it with a wrench... hmm... its a nice touch , but it seems a bit fake and-jumping-through-hoops-styley... much better i would have thought would be that the character would become more experienced as the game goes on, like progressively faster reloading, and recoil compensation...

i get where they're coming from on the gun deteriation front, but much better i would have thought would be grips, sights, and stocks falling off, rather than on the trailer the front of the gun just explodes....

well from the bits i have seen it seems to have the same visuals as Crysis, the undergrowth looks even thicker and detailed!!

We'll see about min specs, but i'm guessing it'll be fairly hungry.

I think i read it was using a modded Crysis engine...

It cant. Ubi and Cry split and thats why were having a Farcry 2 and Crysis. This game does look good though but i think the gun blowing up is ridiculous.
