Get it, because it's cheesy? I kill me.

Well, your resident Editor-in-Chimp is giggling like an idiot, so you know that something over-the-top and satirical is on the way. Today, that something is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the tongue-in-cheek 80s action film that is Far Cry 3‘s standalone spinoff that launches tomorrow.
Everyone’s favourite Space Marine, Michael Biehn (Hicks, of Aliens fame) voices Sergeant Rex Power Colt, a cyborg commando on a mission to stop an army of dragons that shoot lasers from their eyes, metal sharks and other cyborg-type things. If you like your cheesy 80′s action flicks, Blood Dragon may just be for you, with a designated button for flipping off enemies and wildlife alike, as well as altered physics so you can spray bullets wildly and still miss most of the time!
If that trailer got you in the mood, you can pre-purchase the game here for about $18 USD, and it’ll unlock in about 11 hours. I’ll reiterate that it is standalone, so if for some reason you didn’t already own Far Cry 3, you can still download and play this.
