Farcry's South African Connection

As if we actually needed another reason to pick up Far Cry 2 when it gets released later this year…. However if you were that one person who wasn’t planning on picking it up then this is aimed at you.

It is your patriotic duty to buy a copy of Far Cry 2 because…

Another plus is that all the dialogue was recorded in South Africa, for the most authentic voice acting possible. A journo originally from Rhodesia was at the same presentation, and he was impressed – the accents were dead on. In Far Cry 2, attention to detail has been a top priority.

Yeah it’s a weak link but it’s better than nothing 🙂

    A journo originally from “RHODESIA”? What the fuck? Is this colonial 1950s. Unbelievable.

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    As for the game, I’m not all that excited about it, but maybe the hype will start building at some point…

  • @ PillsburyDeeBoy, they still refer to it as Rhodesia because Zim only got its independence in the 80’s. So its still a old school name. It actually sounds like you take offence to it?
