There’s a Final Fantasy 7 Easter egg in Just Cause 3

I’m loving Just Cause 3 at the moment, despite the fact that it’s a flawed masterpiece of baysplosions. There’s a number of things that I wish I could see improved upon, such as ditching the horrid online mode properly or getting a less twitchy system for locking onto enemies so that you can pepper them with bullets.

That being said, Just Cause 3 is still fun. Easily some of the most and bestest fun that I’ve had so far this year.

You can’t actually do anything with it, and it’s more of a sight-gag than anything else. And yes, I tried placing explosives on it. Damn thing is tougher than hobo underwear. Still, I dig seeing little nods to other games like this. Nice one Avalanche.
