Ubisoft’s neon-drenched Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It doesn’t require the original Far Cry 3 to play and doesn’t include any callbacks to its parent game beyond using the same engine. So why does it include the Far Cry 3 name? The world may never know, but the wave of 80s cliches has already turned this into a must-have game in May.

Finally this week, we took a look at Supergiant’s Transistor in our continuing coverage of PAX East 2013.
