The New Far Cry 3 Commercial Takes Us Back To The V/H/S Days Of the 80s....


I am a bit out of the look when it comes to the video game world, but I am not blind so I see the fantastic ads and game play footage that is constantly flooding mass media. Video games are big business... and the companies have to do something to stand out among the large groups of games getting released in order to score the consumers $60 bucks. So when my buddy Nunzio (an avid gamer and video game blogger himself) posted this Far Cry 3 game trailer on his Facebook account, I knew it had to be special. Now I preface this by saying that even though I have heard of the Far Cry franchise I personally have never played the game at all. But after watching this 3 minute trailer, I have to admit that this title might find its way into my X Box 360. The first person shooter channels the early 80s era of taping TV shows (with all the commercials) on a V/H/S and having Michael Biehn as the voice of the main character is a good way to gain my geek interest piqued. All in all, a great commercial whether or not you even play games like this. Far cry 3: Blood Dragon is due in stores May 1st 2013. Check out the commercial after the jump...
