Yesterday, I complained (opens in new tab) that there were no good screenshots for the newly announced Just Cause 3. Then, because I'm petty, I asked readers to tweet me with their own artistic recreations of what they think the game will be.
People actually did this.
Also yesterday, genuine screenshots of Just Cause 3 appeared. They appeared courtesy of Game Informer (opens in new tab), who have temporary dominion over all Just Cause 3 related happenings.
I'm going to post them anyway, like the rebel without a cause that I am. I will, however, keep the Game Informer watermark CLEARLY VISIBLE, because someone from Game Inform͏̵̧e̶̵r̸̨̛ might see this and I don't want to be sued.
As an additional challenge to all of you, I'm going to post the official Just Cause 3 screenshots – BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH GAME INFOŔ̢M̴͟͏̴͡ER – alongside our community-made pictures. I invite you to attempt to work out the difference. Answers at the bottom of the post.
Okay, I have realised that the inherent problem with this quiz is the GAM̛̦̭̫̙̗E̘͓I̡͜͏͓̳̟͇N͕F҉̹̙̼̠̖͕O͉̙͖̟͎͟͞R͘̕҉̝̰̣̺Ḿ̩͇̘E͖̕͢ͅR̖̯̳̺̳͓̪̀ watermark. It makes it too easy. I have manually attempted to correct that in the next image.
Right, there's your lot. Did you spot them? To be sure, here are the answers.
