Playing Far Cry 3. Never got into it when it was first released, then picked it up from the recent Ubisoft sale.

Well, at least I got FC4 and FC5 in the sale as well.

It is dirty work, getting closely acquainted with the human."

Time to make things happen! Unfortunately, this is the biggest combination of crisis and useless you can imagine.
