Far Cry 3 vs. Crysis 1 is pretty close
lol? Anxious

But seriously, you can't have played Far Cry 3 if you think Crysis is "pretty close" visually. I could keep posting screenshots but I doubt it would change your mind.

Looks like a souped up Far Cry 1. View distance is pretty low, so its actually worse in some aspects.

I consider this a mistake on their part since I'm guessing that DX10 hardware will play it, but the DirectX 11 software needs to be installed. The low-end cards listed indeed are DX10 cards.
The low-end cards on their list are DX11 cards; there are not any DX10 cards on that list.

They are seriously programming in 64 bit? I kinda doubt that.
On a 64bit OS a 32bit binary can access up to 4GB of RAM. Throw in OS overhead and 8GB makes a lot of sense if you intend to fully utilize that 4GB.

Yeah, many have claimed that, yet I have never seen it in a game.

Your supplied screenshots don't visibly support your assertion that Crysis 2 and Far Cry 2 look better than the original Crysis. Confused
Tthey're not the easiest to compare but I stand by my point - I consider both games to have better graphics than Crysis.

I found a few more Crysis 2 shots that might be slightly better:
Indoors
Cobbles
Grassy

And from Crysis:
Vehicle
Sunset

I agree, Crysis looks much better than Crysis 2, the screenshots prove it very well.

Didn't they release 64 bit exe's for Crysis and Crysis 2?

Creston
Yeah, for Crysis. But since Crysis 2 was just a console port, doubt it had 64 bit.

I am always amazed at how useless and broken Publishers can be to be honest. Sure 4 million is nothing in cash for a AAA title but there are a LOT of people who loved Baldurs Gate 2 or Torment. And yet it takes Obsidian as a DEVELOPER and some guts and 100k public investors who simply have HOPE to get it made, instead of a publisher, who's entire fucking business model and even reason of existence was supposed to allow for funding of "hit and miss" games were success was not guaranteed but which would need funding far above what anyone could privately organize.

Publishers really do everything they can to put themselves into a niche where a single flop means the end of their entire business. Does that sound like smart business to anyone?

EA for example said two thirds of the development costs are being used for public relations, sometimes much more. Thats a lot, and without it, 4 million really does seem reasonable.

Just to make things clear:

The sale of such games is not verboten in Germany; they just can't be sold to somebody under 18. And you can't advertise for such publications in media that is available to minors.

Only very few games are actually banned in Germany; I think the number is 13.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Germany

Nobody forces a developer/publisher to censor their games to get a under 18 release in Germany.

Online sales, where it's difficult to determine the buyers age, are tricky though...

Some just dont sell that game if your IP is from Germany. If you order it online, you will need to provide a copy of your identification and the postman will only deliver the package to the person who ordered it (also checked by identification, unless he/she knows you already).

Yeah, we still have a little Nazi in us. Lately though, I think he got bigger and bigger.

Right, we should fight Windows 8 because Steam is not a walled garden at all and represent freedom am I right folks? LOL. There's much irony in this.

No one is forcing you to download and use Steam. Windows 8 is stripping away freedom, choice, and power, in more ways than just one.

I don't understand why all the people who love Windows 8 don't just go out and buy themselves a tablet. What makes Windows 8 so much more compelling than Windows 7. "It boots faster". Okay, get a tablet. They boot even faster. "Its more secure". Ok, get a tablet. Its more secure than Windows 7. There is virtually no compelling reason for Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 8. Yet there are many reasons to avoid this catastrophe. The stripping away of choice, freedom, flexibility, and power are many of the reasons I will not even look at Windows 8 lest I begin puking.

"It boots faster." You keep saying that. Is that really the only advantage you're aware of? Hell, even in this cess pool of comments there are a few more called out.

All I'm saying in tone down your tantrum until you've educated yourself a little or you're going to end up looking as bad as ASeven.

Its supposed to work with touch devices. Specifically designed for them, they say so proudly. I was excited when I heard that, since I am using a car pc. I tried it and guess what? MINIMUM RESOLUTION 1024x768. Useless for any car pc, unless its in a huge van or truck with like a 10" screen. 800x480 is standard there, because everything bigger doesnt make sense.

Also I was excited about the new UVC standard. Yay, finally no more CPU usage when recording from a webcam that uses an internal encoder.
Tried it. Doesnt work. Black picture as soon as you start recording. Guess some fucking retarded way of DRM.

I also hoped they would learn from their mistakes in Vista and 7, by going back to the sound system in XP, or at least to something that had the features of it, like playing the same source simultaneously over 2 outputs, since so many people complain about it. Nope. Nothing. Still the shitty system they used before. Not even sound quality has improved, you still need to use ASIO or similar if you want proper quality.

I could care less about a little better multi monitor support (actually worse in some aspects) or better virtualization, and you know VERY WELL that most people dont either.

I game primarilly.

Is Win 8 optimized for PC gaming???? If not, I`ll stick with Win 7.

Vista arrived, I stuck with WinXP. No loss there. Ya know, I saw tons of peeps who didn`t like WinME. Dunno why. It was a system you could easilly tweak for performance. I had no problems with it at all.


Ya dude, I liked especially the nice blue desktop it had, though I hated the bug when that desktop was almost always in the foreground and you couldnt do anything anymore!

I suppose there were apologists, fanbois and shills who defended WinME so seeing them do the same on Win8 is hardly surprising.

1/10 ... your mention of WinME gains you that one point.

Oh, and if you were being serious then you're incredibly obtuse.

Someone asking if that was serious or not, obviously is one of the guys he mentioned... lol

News Comments > Linux Diablo III Bans Follow-up
19. Re: Linux Diablo III Bans Follow-up Nov 15, 2012, 16:38 Muscular Beaver
 
Nothing new from the Blizztards.
Not too long ago, I was banned for 72 hours from WoW and received a final warning - for reasons unknown, so I couldnt know what I did wrong and because of that the final warning was as good as a soon to be permanent ban.
After a few days of talking with different GMs, one told me it was due to account sharing. I did not share my account, only my IP addresses change often, due to different locations and different PCs. So I told them that, but they still didnt listen. After 4 weeks I finally got a reply from a supervisor, who said he could confirm the stuff I claimed and that the final warning was canceled.

Now, I couldnt play for 4 weeks, since I feared they would permanently ban the account, if my IP changed again. That makes one wasted subscription month. It was never reimbursed. Not even the 72 hours of ban I got were reimbursed. The final mail from the supervisor also had not even a slight hint of an apology.

So this guy got very lucky that he got his second game refunded. But I guess only because he went public.
Oh, and shortly after that they implemented an automatic IP-change-checker. The nice thing about that was, that I had to go through their moronic password change system every time my IP changed. Quite some time later they finally got it right and it saved the IPs that are frequently used. Billions well spent!

Yeah, or just install something like StartIsBack for Win8 and you can bypass the Metro Start screen completely. At first I didn't like Win8 either because of the whole Metro thing, but once I found that it is basically just another desktop window which can be bypassed, I didn't mind it so much.
It allows you to directly start the computer to the desktop?

I liked the Halloween event, though I didn't partake in much of it. Tried the whole "Thorn's minions vs villagers" thing once, and I spent ten minutes just running around a (seemingly) empty maze, and got terribly bored of it. I'm sure the guys who got to hunt the villagers had more fun, but in general people don't really like playing a fucking rabbit. (or at least I don't.)

And I suck at the jumping puzzles, so I skipped the clocktower thing after seeing a video. That would have given me an aneurysm for sure.

But the mad king mini-dungeon was cool, and the scavenger hunt was pretty fun too. All in all, for something they released absolutely for free, it was awesome.

2 characters at 80 now! Woot!

Creston

What I found was that the classes are so massively different from each other, that they either make or brake your experience. My Elementalist was kinda stressing and after reaching level 80, I really did not want to continue. But then I made an engineer and had more fun than ever. My Mesmer is also really nice, after I understood how it works. I tried a warrior and deleted him at level 15 because he was simply too boring.
It is really hard to find the right trait spec. Everything needs different stuff if you want to be really good at it. sPvP, WvW, WvWvW, dungeons, solo PvE, group PvE, group of mobs, etc, etc, etc. Not only different traits, but also different abilities, different gear and different weapons.

Everyone says something different too, if you try to find help on the net. I like this, but I understand that on the start (and I mean the first 2 months) this can be frustrating. WoW vanilla wasnt much different though, just not that massive gameplay-wise.

I love this game, and I actually like that it doesnt have a subscription. With WoW I spend every second I could spare in it, because I felt like I was in some kind of race. But here, I sometimes dont play it for days, but I dont feel the fun declining at all. Actually its getting better and better each time I play, because there is still some much to explore and grasp.

The only thing I dont really like is the lack of zones. I could use much more zones. Especially level 80 zones. I hope they will fix that with their monthly events.
Bug fixing could go a little faster too, but I never have been angry at anything in this game, like I was in WoW from day one. My keyboard didnt have to feel my fist even once yet.

True but that's sort of the point. You can't even see what other items look like to change it too, unless you buy them sight unseen too. For example my Elementalist had a sort of school girl starter outfit, which I've basically kept the look all the way to 78 (in theory up 80). Unless I found a better looking drop or have gotten lucky when blindly buying upgrade gear.

She has been sitting at level 78 (90% to 79) for a month. Because I know my level 80 gear is going to be expensive and I don't have a clue how they will look. At a minimum I will be spending 15 gold, now maybe you guys have that to throw around but this is my first (main I guess) toon.

Obviously this doesn't even get into buying a good Dyes, which are 2g to 6g each. Why shouldn't we be able to see what we are buying before spending 15g, probably more. Why is that too much to ask in GW2.

Dyes have a color preview.
I dont really know what the problem is. If youre close to level 80, you have seen most armor looks anyway. Theres not much choice. If you liked your old armor so much, why didnt you keep it? You can even use transformed items to transfer their looks to the next one. Paying a few silver really isnt an issue at level 78. Honestly, I dont like the looks of most high level items, so I need to transform them in any case.
But generally, I agree that tehre should be a preview, I just dont understand how this keeps you from playing.
