If you, like us, once relished walking a video store's aisles and picking up giant VHS clamshell cases of ridiculous-looking sci-fi action movies with titles like Hell Comes to Frogtown, Immortal Combat or Ghost Warrior, you're going to get a massive smile pressing play on the trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.
Sadly this isn't a trailer for a movie, but game developer Ubisoft is clearly turning to the past for inspiration here. This is its version of an '80s movie where a ragged soldier has to save the world. In fact, Ubisoft even hired Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn to voice the main character Sgt. Rex Powercolt, a cybercommando born from "the toxic ashes of Vietnam War 2." If none of the words in that sentence make you happy, then you're going to want to skip this -- it's too cool for you.
Warning: Trailer is NSFW for a few F-bombs.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon hits PC, PSN and XBLA on May 1, 2013.
