Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Dean Evans is Pushing for a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Sequel

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon hit XBLA last week and has been putting a smile on players' faces ever since with its tongue-in-cheek take on 80s action movie lunacy. Indeed, such has been the positive reaction to the game from both critics and consumers that creative director Dean Evans is hoping to make a sequel.

That's according to Michael Biehn, who stars in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as Sergeant Rex 'Power' Colt. While speaking on Major Nelson Radio, the actor said, “[Dean Evans] was with me on the phone last night. He was pretty jacked up. He was going into a meeting today, to you know – I think he wants to turn it into some sort of franchise. He’s got a sequel in mind.”

So if Evans gets his way it looks like we might be seeing more from Sgt. Colt and his neon-tinged island of giant laser lizards. As far as we're concerned, that's no bad thing.

good news for those that enjoyed the game, personally I was liking it but I had to turn it off before I could even finish the tutorial, the neon likes were burning my eyes.

Great game but not better then FC 3 as FC 3 is game of the year 2012. This is one just great so now I really like to see FC 4 and FC 3 or 4: Blood Dragon 2 in near future. I like both different way set on island. :)

Gotta agree with #7. The tutorial was just too drawn out. Might give it another go sometime. Does look fun.

Honestly, I don't think it'd be as good if it was a full retail game. Keep it as an arcade series imo.

Far Cry 3 is an amazing game, and so is Far Cry: Blood Dragon. However, although this man has earned all appraisal, he shouldn't get Far Cry 4. Seeing he would turn it into what he did with Blood Dragon, I think it's a better idea if he just continued down the road on Blood Dragon 2. In retail. Please, in retail.

I'd rather see them come up with a new, equally crazy idea and release another FC3 XBLA game, or better yet, start working on FarCry 4 for next-gen.

@19: Well as long as 4 doesn't have the same pretentious bellend who wrote Far Cry 3 ("95% of stories in games are just crap", main character goes from tender wuss to remorseless killing machine in 30 minutes with little prompting) it really can't be anything but better.

Not sure if I'm really motivated to...

It was a nice surprise but then it'll look a bit like all the franchises, sequels, sequels, sequels...

I would rather like to see them doing something new.

@23: Michael Mando would like everyone to believe he's the sole reason Vaas exists thanks to his krazee audition. Who knows how true that really is.

@27 It's 100% true. They were so impressed with his audition - which was for a completely different role - that they decided to create the Vaas character for him. They tailor made it from the ground up. So, yes. If it wasn't for Micheal Mondo, Vaas wouldn't even exist.

I knew I mention before Blood Dragon released and said it is ruined but when I bought and played and love it with accept it is what Blood Dragon is add on story for FC 3. Sometime when I look at previews that I begin to think ruined for reasons then when buy and play realise it is meant and not ruined. Unlike Dead Space 3, Resident Evil 6 and other that I knew it will ruined that is for example. It is happened when I though. Sometime I am right or wrong it just opinion anyway. :)

Please let this happen, the game kicked ass and was just so damn much fun.

Honestly, I'd love to see a lot more 80's style games and films. I always loved the over-the-top nature and frankly kickass soundtracks many of them used to have even though I was too young to have really appreciated the decade at the time being born in 85.

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES i loved every god damn minute of this game. From the one-liners, the cut scenes, the graphics, the "Daft Punk" enemies. Please make this into a whole series.

I hope he means full game sequel and not another arcade game. Loved it, but I wish it was a lot longer.

Loved this game but don't know if I'd want more of the same as it kinda is a one trick pony...maybe if they set it in another 'era' to keep it fresh it may keep my interest
