I’m having a blast with Just Cause 3. It’s a sandbox game with a heavy emphasis on the “sandbox”. Like a real sandbox, I’d say that the amount of fun you have in Just Cause will be determined by how much of your own imagination you bring to the game. You can sit in the sand and complain that there’s nothing to do, or you can make your own fun. I feel like Just Cause 3 is pretty much the same. The tools they give you like the grappling hook, the wing suit, the explosives and all the crazy vehicles are there but it’s sort of up to you to decide what you want to do with them. I’ve spent nights assaulting bases and blowing shit up. I’ve also spent nights attaching cows to cars. The physics are pretty goofy but they emphasize fun over realism which is fine with me. I say give it a try, or at least watch some streams of it because some of the shit that happens in this game is totally bonkers.
If you liked the Lookouts piece from earlier this week you can now purchase a print of it. This particular piece was based on a poem by Patrick Rothfuss and all proceeds from the print sales are going to his awesome Worldbuilders charity. You can get it here and it’s even signed!
