Ah, good old permadeath - who isn't a fan of when a beloved family member or pet passes of this mortal coil, never to return again? It's great in video games too, as Far Cry 4's new DLC, Escape from Durgesh Prison, proves. In this new slice of open world action, you're given 30 minutes to reach a goal, your success in side missions helping unlock new tools to help boost your chances. Die, though, and that's it - there's no coming back. Just like that time my cat had a spinal embolism!
