Some of those shots look like Aliens sets... also looks better than the entirety of Aliens: Colonial Marines :lol:

I see what you mean but at the same time i can applaud Ubisoft for not taking the easy way out & doing a Zombie/supernatural add-on using the Japanese soldiers in the bunkers etc which, let's face it they could have easily done.. even during the initial playthrough of Far Cry 3 i was expecting something to happen with the dead soldiers, but for them to go off in this direction is pretty cool tbh even if it's not for everyone.

Also looking at the link to Power Glove's Soundcloud there's a pic of what looks like the protagonist & after seeing the gauntlet looking the same in the screenshots as well as the face looking the same under the "cast" section of the Blood Dragon website i'd say it's looking to be fairly accurate.

Philosophical question ;
If it's under the same name, (fc3)
But a different setting
Different theme
And even different guns
Is it still the same game?

It looks like a bad April Fools joke that's taken on a life of it's own.

No of course not, it'd just be a spin off.

Dunia is technically is a modified version of CryEngine so he's not a million miles from the truth...

Either way, this looks pretty ridiculous if i'm honest. Far too colourful to be taken seriously, someone put a sci fi shooter in a b&q paint mixer.

Because it markets the game better than 'generic psychedelic sci-fi shooter'.
