Explaining failure to your boss is never great. When your boss is a deadly warlord with a massive private army and advanced tech, that conversation becomes even more uncomfortable, especially when corrective action might result in you having an extra hole in your head.
That’s the general premise for the new Just Cause 4 trailer. Combining live action with gameplay cuts, the soldiers of the Black Hand explain how they wound up in the hospital to their fearsome leader, Gabriela Morales. As a person who doesn’t accept failure lightly, it doesn’t go well.
I don’t know how the game will be, but it’s another good Just Cause 4 trailer in an avalanche of marketing from Square Enix. It doesn’t hurt that Just Cause’s gameplay is generally crazy in a good way.
We should know if one man really can cause all that damage when Just Cause 4 releases on December 4th.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
