Where exactly did Crytek say that DX11 was going to be supported in Crysis 2, or even released with the game?

Or indeed where did they say that Crysis 2 would be based on 5 year old tech???????????

Well, Crysis 1, which used the OLDER version of this engine is FOUR YEARS OLD....

yet it has DX10 *AND* 64x support with a devoted 64x executable.

So you would think, since Crytek 3 is a new engine and was said to be more advanced than the previous engine, that it would AT THE VERY LEAST support dx10 and 64x.

It does neither.

Now come on. I'm tired of white knights coming here and going "Where did they say they'd support dx11 or 64x?"

Yeah, because Carmack's new IdTech engine will go back to Glide support and only run on DOS 6.0.

I still can't believe people play this. It's a shallow little retro game. How long can you juice the liquid out of this lemon? A month? Maybe two?

I guess charging people to be your beta testers works out.

It only proves that there are a lot of gullible aspies in the world.

Wow, they're going to lose a lot of sales with those specs.

Only to poor white trash that can't afford a half decent PC.

I remember when Gamespy was just "Gamespy 3D" and was primarily used by me and my friends to play Quake 2. You know, before it became bloated and was ruined by greed.

Never messed much with Kali. Or Ten or WON for that matter.

They really need to be sued. I hope Valve does so.

Doubtful though, since Gabe has donuts to eat.

Didn't you real the Australian report about the stuff that was in the game and why it got its rating? It talked about this stuff. Blue even linked a story about it.
Its all real, NOT april fools.

Some of us have a life and don't sit in front of Blues jerking off to Stephen and his "I have teeth problems and my dog is shitting the rug again" website.

Most people don't buy a second system due to RROD, they send it back to Microsoft and get a free one instead.

Wish that was true. I bought a Jasper to replace the "free" refurbished one they gave me when I sent my launch day 360 in for "repair".

A good friend of mine had my second busted 360 and fixed it...only to have it RROD about a year later, when he bought a Jasper arcade unit himself. So far, both of our consoles are running, but they still lock up time from time.

My PS3? A fat 80GB one that has been running perfectly for 3 years.

This is why I'll always be a biased PC elitist. A PC can be fixed cheaply and easily most of the time. A console cannot. Unless you enjoy voiding your "warranty".

This.

The game is just another flavor of CoD, that's all. You could re-package this as Call of Duty: North Korea Invasion and nobody would have noticed the difference.

After Gothic 4 I'm suppose to think this won't be garbage?

Forsaken gods was outsourced to a small time dev whose only game before that was a DS brain training game.

PASS.

Diablo 3 has already been proven to be consolized. Why we are wasting our time reporting about a console baby game like D3 I have no idea.

Activision-Blizzard only makes kiddie console crap.

If you can separate games for a moment, to me this has some potential to be fun.

To put this in RPG terms:

This game's chance of succeeding is roughly the same as a warrior with a THAC0 of 18 hitting a monster with an Armor Class of -3.

The bottom line is you need a license to drive a car and that privilege can be taken away at any time. You certainly have the right to own a car, but unless you are licensed to drive it, you can't.

bullshit, its quite easy to drive without a license

there is a massive difference between physical law and man-made law

Comparing it to a Driver's license is a huge leap of (non)logic.

Sure, both are privileges, but with a Driver's License you can walk into the DMV and call the lady at the counter a C-word or a B-word and not have that license taken away. She might scratch you with her 3 inch razor sharp nails, but she can't take your license away.

The problem here is that someone is doing the *equivalent* of cursing out the DMV lady, and they are getting their "License revoked".

I could see having your privilege to play the game removed due to something like pirating the game or even hacking it to get achievements you didn't earn (Starcraft 2 did it!) but for just mouthing off in a forum?

That's why I have sockpuppets on every forum.

Yeah, the first Prey was soooooo amazing, right?

I loved how it was totally impossible to lose because you resurrected after an arcade-style bow and arrow mini game.

I love how the DA2 White-Knight brigade spins everything on those forums.

"OH but those 0/10 reviews are so principled, amirite guise?"

No, but neither is a 10/10 review done by a BioWare employee.

They can white knight this stuff all they want, but at the end of the day it's still a sub-par game.
