We all wore Pagan Min wigs at the Far Cry 4 launch event

we looked as sexy as this

Far Cry 4 is finally here! Geoff gave it a good playing and rather enjoyed it. While he was slaving away over his review, Zoe and I headed out to the launch event which took place at the awesome Vikrams in Lonehill Shopping Centre. What resulted was an evening of shooting, eating, and spontaneous wig wearing.

No really, the Pagan Min hair accessories induced many, many giggles. Zoe legit looked like his long lost sister. I on the other hand, looked like the product of a very poorly attempted emo haircut/perm hybrid.

We of course, were not the only media up to some blonde shenanigans. Here’s a bunch of other awesome faces, as well as random snaps from the event.

I also got to spend some time with the game itself. Being the bastard hipster I am, I broke from the mainstream of running and shooting and went straight for the much quicker, alternate ending.

After the game kicks off, Pagan Min takes you out for a delightful meal. He leaves shortly after, telling you to remain seated. Naturally, gamers are not a patient bunch, and usually run off immediately to explore Kyrat.

I on the other hand, sat and twiddled my thumbs for a good 15 minutes. Passing journalists must have thought I was the biggest moron, but it all paid off! Pagan Min returned soon enough, and he took me to place my mother’s ashes. The credits rolled soon after. I can now officially say that I have finished Far Cry 4!

In all seriousness, the game looks amazing. From what I saw on other people’s screens, there were no problems whatsoever, and Kyrat was explored lag free.

Thanks to Megarom for hosting another awesome event. It’s always a treat getting to spend a carefree evening with good food and good company!

      I know, imagine being forced to wear that horrible afro wig. At least clowns wigs are colourful.

      Oh… the blonde thing is the wig.. er…

    What’s the point of a game launch event anyway, we all know the game is coming and the media have their review copies. They trying to butter ya’ll up for better word of mouth?

      I honestly have no idea. An allocated marketing budget, and the need to do something with it?

        These events aren’t a bad thing since it only happens once in a while and also it shows the developers that Africa likes them games.

          well the sheep went to the CoD one, and they went to another one last week, so i wouldnt say it only happens once in a while, 3x in a month isnt so bad.
          but to be fair, its been a busy month or two for the AAA games.
          CoD, borderlands, dragon age, far cry, assassins creed etc etc etc…

      dont think its to butter them up for better reviews, its buttering them up to add steam to the hype train.
      articles like these are like fuel for the fire.
      pointing specific things out, making sure the reviewers notice certain things about the game etc.

    I’m Glad Ubi didn’t completely mess this one up minus having to unplug every controller on my PC so it didn’t have to crash on start up. Or the crashes every hour and a half or so. Other then that it’s great! ^.^

    Plus it looks so purddie in 1440p on Max Settings

    Zoe – that style actually suits you. Perhaps you have an evil megalomaniac inside, waiting to come out. 😉

    Mat – LOVE the FroMan… 🙂
