With respect Master Wayne, perhaps this is a man you don't fully understand either. A long time ago, I was in Burma, my friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of the tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones, but their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anyone who traded with him. One day I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.
-So why steal them?
Because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
This video is a reference to the above scene in The Dark Knight. Alfred Pennyworth was after men stealing precious stones, diamonds in this case, but in the end the men just threw them away and enjoyed the carnage. Allegedly the quote in the film is a reference to yet another movie.
The "buddy" I used in the first scene is Josip Idromeno, and it took quite a few takes for the AI to not ruin the scene. Grenades, exploding barrels, a M1903 Springfield with a telescopic sight, a RPG-7, and a flamethrower add more destruction to some scenes.
The scenes also include some of my favorite bits of Far Cry 2, notably setting fire to the enviornment with a flamethrower or by other means so I can just "watch the world burn." There are a few more unique aspects to Far Cry 2 than the massive fires and fire-starting explosions, but this is what I decided to fit in such a short video. Ubisoft's Far Cry 2 additionally has an interesting system where weapons degrade over time, unique arms dealers, and a setting in Africa with a main character that has malaria, but not much else that is noteworthy. However, this game has potential for future videos although I currently have no plans.
The music in the video is "Aggressive Expansion" by Hans Zimmer from The Dark Knight Soundtrack.
