Games of March

Skylar Tarkington, Editor

Many gamers, including myself, are excited about the new game releases of 2018. Many like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Spider-Man, but we still have a bit before those games release. March, however, has a lot of new games for Ps4, Xbox One, and Nintendo platforms that will scratch that itch of wanting a new game to play.

Ps4 players have a really good line-up this month with one of the most popular one being Far Cry 5. Personally, I have loved the series ever since Far Cry 3. For those who don’t know what Far Cry 5 is, you are the Sheriff of Hope County, Montana, and an extremist cult has taken over. You—and many friends you make through the story—try to reclaim your county from the crazed family that leads the cult. Far Cry is a fantastic game, and Far Cry 5 seems to follow that pattern. First off, the graphics of this game look absolutely amazing. The last few games have all been fleshed-out, exotic places, and it’s refreshing to see America get Far Cry‘s spotlight. The game gives you an abundance of guns, vehicles, and tools at your disposal. With all of these, you get your choice of play style with the game as well. You can go guns blazing and blow up everything in sight, or take the stealthy route with your trusty bow.

Far Cry offers an abundance of things to do. Along with your traditional main quest of the story, you have an abundance of side quests. For one example, you have the choice to just relax and take a break from the madness to go fishing. Yes, this is a feature in the game. If you’re not a big fisherman, then grab yourself a bow and go hunting. Montana has a large variety of wildlife, and with these animals, the animals’ hides grant you upgrades.

Ubisoft has had years of practice with this series, and from my personal experience, the games get better each year. They have a great formula for this game, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I strongly suggest that you play it, too.
