Working my way through the series for the first time, have some questions

2021.12.09 01:20 Spidercube Working my way through the series for the first time, have some questions

My Journey started with Far Cry 2. Absolutely loved it. Moved onto 3, thought it was great but not quite as good as 2. Blood dragon was fun. Currently working on 4. I own 5 and if I really enjoy it I'll probably grab 6 next time it's on sale. Anyways, heres my questions.
I've noticed that as the games have gone on there's been less and less of a focus on the story. The writing in FC2 seemed really solid and the world was so immersive it felt like most of the story was told through the environment. I loved that. 3 has an actual protagonist which was a welcome change, and as everyone has always said, Vaas was incredible. However, I found the world far less immersive and the story plenty well written (Jason/Vaas parallels were super interesting, and I actually loved the 2nd Island with Hoyt) was not nearly as compelling. Whole thing just felt a bit more basic than 2. I did end up 100%ing 3 since after Batmans riddler trophies, 120 relics was nothing. I've now gotten to the point where you visit your father's homestead in FC4, and I seem to have even less attachment to the story. Is this a common trend in the series? Do the Villains/worlds/stories slowly get worse and worse as the series go on? Does 4 pick up later on, or is 5 and 6 an improvement?
2nd question, much simpler. I got 3 4 and 5 in a bundle without any of the DLC. Is the season pass content for FC4 and 5 worth it?
How do the games go about rewarding completion, especially those who go for 100%? And about how long is the campaign of each game, and then how long for 100%? 3 took me like 25 hours to 100% for reference.
Lastly, I've heard that of the modern FC games, 5 is by far the most similar to 2. Without getting into spoiler territory, in what ways is it similar? Or is this completely false? I'm hoping it's a bit dingey and worn down in world design and somber in tone like 2 was. My favorite part of 2 was the vibe it gave off. The tone of the game was so hostile and depressing, I was so into that shit.
Loving these games so far, hope to continue to love them. Super excited to keep moving forward and hear what all you beautiful people have to say. Thanks for reading, and if you have any other advice about the games I'd be happy to hear it 😊

2021.12.09 01:20 I_v_4_n Fuck you, useless piece of shit.

Fuck you.
Fuck you. You useless piece of shit. You absolute waste of space and air. You uneducated, ignorant, idiotic dumb swine, you’re an absolute embarrassment to humanity and all life as a whole. The magnitude of your failure just now is so indescribably massive that one hundred years into the future your name will be used as moniker of evil for heretics. Even if all of humanity put together their collective intelligence there is no conceivable way they could have thought up a way to fuck up on the unimaginable scale you just did. When Jesus died for our sins, he must not have seen the sacrilegious act we just witnessed you performing, because if he did he would have forsaken humanity long ago so that your birth may have never become reality. After you die, your skeleton will be displayed in a museum after being scientifically researched so that all future generations may learn not to generate your bone structure, because every tiny detail anyone may have in common with you degrades them to a useless piece of trash and a burden to society. No wonder your father questioned whether or not your were truly his son, for you'd have to not be a waste of carbon matter for anyone to love you like a family member. Your birth made it so that mankind is worse of in every way you can possibly imagine, and you have made it so that society can never really recover into a state of organization. Everything has forever fallen into a bewildering chaos, through which unrecognizable core, you can only find misfortune. I would say the apocalypse is upon us but this is merely the closest word humans have for the sheer scale of horror that is now reality. You have forever condemned everyone you love and know into an eternal state of suffering, worse than any human concept of hell. You are such an unholy being, that if you step within a one hundred foot radius of a holy place or a place that has ever been deemed important by anyone, your distorted sac religious soul will ruin whatever meaning it ever had beyond repair. You are an idiotic, shiteating, dumbass ape and no one has ever loved you. Rhodes Island would have been better off if you'd never joined us. You are a lying, backstabbing, cowardly useless piece of shit and I hate you with every single part of my being. Even this worlds finest writers and poets from throughout the ages could never hope to accurately describe the scale on which you just fucked up, and how incredibly idiotic you are. Anyone that believes in any religion out there should now realize that they have been wrong this entire time, for if divine beings were real, they would never have allowed a being such as you to stain the earth and this universe. In the future there will be horror stories made about you, with the scariest part of them being that the reader has to realize that such an indescribable monster actually exists, and that the horrific events from the movie have actually taken place in the same world that they live in right now. You are the absolute embodiment of everything that has ever been wrong on this earth, yet you manage to make it so that that is only a small part of the evil that is your being. Never in the history of mankind has there been anyone that could have predicted such an eldrich abomination, but here you are. It’s hard to believe that I am seeing such an incredible failure with my own eyes, but here I am, so unfortunately I cannot deny your existence. Even if I did my very best, my vocabulary is not able to describe the sheer magnitude of the idiotic mistake that is you. Even if time travel some day will be invented, there still would not be a single soul willing to go back in time to before this moment to fix history, because having to witness such incredible horrors if they failed would have to many mental and physical drawbacks that not even the bravest soul in history would be willing to risk it. I cannot imagine the pure dread your mother must have felt when she had to carry a baby for nine months and then giving birth to such a wretched monster as you. Not a single word of the incoherent, illogical rambling you may be wanting to do to defend yourself or apologize would ever be able to make up for what you just did. The countries of the world would have wanted to make laws preventing such a terrible event like this from ever happening again, but sadly this is not possible since your horrific actions just now have shattered every form of order this world once had, making concepts such as laws irrelevant. Right from the moment I first set my eyes on you I knew you were an absolute abomination of everything that is wrong with humanity. I was hoping I would have been able to prevent your evil from being released upon this world by tagging along and keeping my eye on you, but it is clear to me now that not even the greatest efforts would have been able to prevent a terrible event in this scale from occurring. You are the worst human being, or even just being in general, that I have ever had the misfortune of witnessing. Events like the infected plague apparently only happened with the goal of teaching humanity to survive such a horrible event as the one you just created, but not even mankind’s greatest trials were able to even slightly prepare anyone for the insufferable evil you have just created. If you ever had them, your children would be preemptively killed to protect this universe from the possibility of anyone in your bloodline being even half as bad as you are, except you will never be able to have children, because not a single human being will ever want to come within a hundred mile radius of you and anything you have ever touched. You are a colossal disappointment not only to your parents, but to your ancestors and entire bloodline. The disgusting mistake that you have just made is so incredibly terrible that everyone who would ever be to hear about it would spontaneously feel an indescribable mixture of immense anger, fear and anxiety that emotionally and physically they would never truly be the same ever again. The sheer scale of your mistake, if ever to be materialized, would not only surpass the size of the world, but it would reach far beyond the edges of the known, and almost certainly the unknown universe. I could sit here and write paragraphs, nay, books describing your immense failure, yet even if I were to dedicate my life to describing the reality of what has just gone down here, and I would spend every moment of it until my heart stops beating working as hard and efficiently as possible, yet there is not even a snowballs chance in hell that I would be able to come close to transcribing the absolute shitshow you have just released upon the world. You are an irresponsible, idiotic, disgusting, unloved, horrible excuse for a living being who’s soul contains less humanity than every ginger in history combined. The absolute disgust I feel when thinking about anything that has even a slight resemblance to anything that might have to do with you and your unholy actions is so incredibly great that when I am honest about it I think that even I do not posses a consciousness great enough to comprehend my own feelings about it. When people of Columbia fought to break free from Lungmen, countless soldiers fought and lost their lives in favor of a chance at a better future for their children, they did not give their lives to have you fuck the world up beyond repair to the degree that you are doing right now. Honestly, even when technology advances and studies on the subject become more and more accurate, I do not think humanity will ever truly be able to understand what your failure actually means for the universe. My hate for you and everything you stand for is so much deeper than the depths of Shambala that you could probably take the entire Lungmen population down there and back up around twenty million times before you would have sunk to the end of my hate, and honestly, I do not want to exaggerate, but I think that that insult was low balling it such a massive amount that all mountains in this world combined would not be able to stack up to this imprecise judgement in light of the fact that when being honest, my hate is almost certainly bottomless. There is no one in this world that has ever loved you, and especially after what you just did, no one will ever love you in the future either. There is no hope that your idiotic behavior and especially your crooked soul will ever change for the better, and in fact quite the opposite might be true. By making the mistake that you just did, you have shown me that you are so incredibly hopeless that you will only devolve into a more idiotic and wretched creature than you already are. The only possible way in which your future would be brighter than the black hole your existence currently is would exclusively be because there is absolutely no conceivable way that you would even be able to sink lower than the pathetic place your current failure has put you in.

2021.12.09 01:20 NowImAngry Possibility of being Pigeonholed into Testing?

After a long job hunting process, I finally landed my first job with a local consulting firm with good pay as an Associate Software Engineer and I quickly accepted it. However looking at the job description and remembering what I was told during the interviews, I realized that a big chunk of the responsibilities will be to write unit tests, and it seems like I'll be doing that for a while. I'm committed to staying at this company for at least a year to get some job and resume experience. Is there a possibility that I get pigeonholed into testing in my future job opportunities, and if so, is there anything I can do during my time at the company to avoid such a situation or to better prepare myself?

2021.12.09 01:20 Equivalent-Ad985 NCSF S&C Exam

I am studying to take the NCSF Strength and Conditioning exam, and I am almost done with the material. There are two different final practice tests. One at the end of the notes, and one at the home page of "My Account" on their site. There are considerable differences in the style and material of each test.
Has anyone used this cert to train athletes? And does anyone know what practice test is more accurate to the exam?

2021.12.09 01:20 NotMyMainAcc12 My family always gangs up on me

I F(19) always find myself being ganged up on by my immediate family. My parents are both in their 40’s, and I have an older sister (F21). My dad and sister have anger management issues. From the time I was 3 to around 15, my dad would physically beat me for no good reason. He would punch me, kick me, and even tried to shove me down the stairs once for moving a fan that nobody was using. Oftentimes I would be sitting in my room reading, and he would pick the lock and start punching me, then when I would ask him why he’s doing that, he would say it’s because I “read too much”. The answer was always something nonsensical. My mom would often encourage him to hit me. I still don’t understand why she did this, as he never hit her. My dad would never hit my sister either, only me. From the time I was 4 and onwards, my whole family would “make fun” of me, calling me fat, ugly, and stupid. I was none of these things, but even if I was I don’t understand why someone would say this to a preschooler. They would constantly compare me to my sister, although her grades were barely higher than mine and we were both very skinny compared to most kids. I never cared much about this, and this didn’t cause me to compare myself to my sister, but now that I look back this was all very strange behavior from my parents. When I was younger, my sister would often start fights and hit me. Whenever I complained about it to my parents, they would yell at me and tell me to get over it. However, when she complained about me hitting her, they would sometimes hold me down and tell her to hit me. Despite all of these strange things my parents did, I never held any animosity towards my sister and had a very good relationship with her. Later on, when my sister was a freshman in high school, my dad slapped her for the first time. After this, she did a complete 180 and stopped being best friends with my dad. He hit her a few more times since then on separate occasions, but never as badly as he used to beat me. I always defended her when he would hit her, although she never did the same for me. She constantly complained to me about the my dads behavior, but whenever I started to talk about how he treats me she would talk over me or shushes me. A couple years ago, my parents went on vacation and my sister tried to stab me since she thought I took some money from her, which I didn’t, she had actually just lost it. I expected this since she constantly talks about how much she wants to stab someone, lol. I texted my parents to let them know, and when they got back from vacation they screamed at me for “fighting with my sister” and took my phone away. This was when the obvious favoritism started to bother me. Now, she routinely throws fits and hides my clothes, hides my laptop from me when I have homework, and sometimes even throws food all over the house if I tell her she had anger issues, which she interprets as an insult. Although I am much kinder to my parents than my sister is, I never blow up at them and scream at them, and I spend lots of time with my mom, they ALWAYS side with my sister. If I ask my sister to give back one of my belongings that she hid from me, they’ll all go ballistic and scream at me. They’ve told me multiple times that this is because I used to defend my sister when my dad would hit her. I can tell that since she never did the same for me, they show even more favoritism towards her now. They say that it’s my fault she acts like this, and if I had just let them parent the way they wanted to, then she wouldn’t be acting like this. Now, my sister says that she is the “black sheep” of the family. When I ask her why she thinks this, she says she doesnt know. She constantly complains about our parents, but when I do it she shushes me even more than she did before. Until recently, she used to acknowledge that my parents treat me much worse than her. Now, she acts like they treated her worse than me. She even started claiming to be more of a parent than my mom was, which is definitely not true, she was more of a bully than anything. When I ask her why she feels this way, even though she did no cooking or cleaning and didn’t act like my parent in any way, (was always rude to me and tried to isolate me from my friends, but I didn’t say this) she just answers “I don’t know”. I think she feels embarrassed about the fact that she never stood up for me when my dad would beat me, while I did for her, and she’s convincing herself of this “black sheep” story to make up for it.
TLDR; my parents always favored my sister. My dad used to beat me all the time, but now my sister claims that she had it much worse than I did, but can’t name a single reason why. She now throws fits all the time and my parents act like it’s my fault.
