Yeah, of course it’s not literal. The Bible’s ambivalence about family is interesting to me, and necessary—we see, for instance, monastic traditions versus lay life and how both of those things function together. More context would be great, but not quite in the purview of this article. Happy to hear your thoughts on…
Female. And yeah, it’s creepy for sure...
Longer than my editor would have liked. >.>
Thanks for sharing this.
Please do nothing but this for every blog.
It’s my first Far Cry too—I was also excited about the religious aspect. I wish there were more games that did interesting things with religion. From a Christian perspective I’d say “That Dragon Cancer” comes closest in looking at how complicated faith can be.
The name of this game... ::shakes head::

Oh I didn’t know that about the radiation, that’s cool!
I haven’t played it too much (I just got it this weekend) but I’m really enjoying it! It’s on sale on Steam right now!
Dandelion wants to turn the Passiflora into a bar, but it was still a brothel when I was there. I debated it for a long time!
I buy this! Alas when I reviewed it I’d already finished the story and didn’t have time to start a new game, and they aren’t there generally.
As far as I could tell they just resurrected. It’s possible something different is planned for the final release, since I just had a demo version.
The last time I went was about a decade ago, and it was a lot more painful than I remember.
I would take a flashlight, though...
There’s a mode that lets you turn off hunger and thirst, actually! There’s also one where you can craft everything and not have to do survival stuff at all (though that mode disables the story)
