Just Cause 3: The Perfect Stress Reliever For The Holidays
No doubt about it, the holidays are tough.
There's a reason it goes down as one of the most depressing times of the year for so many, despite all the good intentions. That's why it's important to have a reliable escape. An outlet.
I think you'll find it in the freshly released Just Cause 3, the over-the-top, ridiculously intense open-world action extravaganza from developer Avalanche Software. Even the awesome CG trailer and a behind-the-scenes look at the game's technical prowess don't hold a candle to the experience of actually playing it. I know a lot of people called Saints Row a "poor man's Grand Theft Auto but Just Cause 3 is a different beast.
This really is all about a massive and endlessly entertaining playground, with missions that no human would ever survive after the first five minutes. That's what makes it so exhilarating. Doesn't it sound like the perfect stress reliever? And you know, while previous entries in the series didn't exactly score off the charts, the latest effort is definitely faring better. That's because this one is tighter and boasts higher production values than ever, which is a big highlight.
So, if the holiday blues are encroaching, you should really load up only one game: Just Cause 3. And hang the hell on.
