It's Duke Nukem Forever type development, marketing. I hope the sheet hits the fan on this one.

"We had the same thing with the first Crysis on PC. When Crysis launched, it was the high-end benchmark for a good three years".

Ya, too bad that upon release, it chugged for those who upgraded to high end pcs just for that game.

Don't forget that you can download a free high resolution pak that improves the outdated graphics of this game. Just Google Duke High Rez Pak.

News Comments > Crysis 3 Trailer
21. Re: Crysis 3 Trailer Nov 15, 2012, 16:44 Caslon
 
Looking back on Crysis, at least it didn't have mid eastern war torn streets as a setting. It's getting pathetic that every shooter now is that way. It also was sandbox which was good.

The bad? As a gaming experience I look back on, I really can't remember much worth remembering about Crysis. Most fps games I can at least conjure up some fond memories. Crysis is just a blur in my brains fps memory bank. No real fond memories at all. I try but can't bring up any.

That pic looks a bit like Will Farrel, the comedian/actor.

"Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players." TRANSLATION: "The delay will allow us to release the game with 5 major bugs instead of the 10 we anticipated and which we here at Ubisoft deem acceptable and part of business as usual in the gaming business."

Ah yes, the inevitable announcement we all knew was coming. Far be it from Ubisoft to break new ground by sticking to their initial release date. And ah yes...the inevitable response from players about being glad they aren't rushing the game so it turns out right, even tho delayed games are full of bugs upon release anyways.

The dock at 39 seconds into the trailer looks terrible compared to the rest of the scenes, which look good. I thought I was looking at a Far Cry 1 dock again. Add 3 months onto the release date btw.

Crysis was spectacular when it was announced and when it shipped. (graphically) Since then you have not been spectacular.


Ummm, Crysis wasn't that spectacular. I can't remember much about it because it was that forgettable. Countless North Koreans taking a pee behind a tree and then suddenly popping out from behind it when you were near them is not my idea of great. The online play was a complete joke. The destructible terrain aspect was highly promoted but turned out to be nothing much at all. Some of the interiors of the huts were no better looking than the original Far Cry. All this while the game code taxed everyones new rigs they built just for this game. Crysis will be forgotten.

The online mode was far from a joke. It's pretty complex and interesting. It just couldn't compete with COD and Halo, like every other game.

The enemies can actually hear sounds, so it's absolutely normal for them to go towards it, even if a tree is in the way.


#1, I acknowledge the online play was never meant to be the games strong suit, but still...it was frustratingly rudimentary in hit detection and the lagged out play was horrible, on the lowest ping server.

#2. Yes the North Koreans could hear you approaching, but it got old playing among a forest of tall standing trees with a guy coming out from behind each tree, like they were all taking a leak. That got old.

The announcement by Crytek is laughable..."Spectacular". That adjective describes how pathetic the gaming world is now. I truly believe they meant that announcement as a joke. A satire/parody.

Spectacular...lol...Lean wid it.

I think the announcement will be that their upcoming free online shooter WARFACE will be made available to the US and Europe. Right now, WARFACE (which is being developed by Cryteks South Korea division)is being marketed only to asian markets. Just google Warface.

Wait a sec...I'm having trouble also connecting to Wolf Servers. I thought it was because I had renamed my BF2 intro movie files. What servers will NOT give you that Modifyed error msg? Any other than Wolf servers?

News Comments > Commandos Strike Force Announced
26. Re: No subject Oct 14, 2004, 21:55 Caslon
 
Last poster has a point. Commandos original (online sucked) was
one very good game. I used to come home on my lunch hour just
to continue a saved game. That was one cool game.

I didn't get into Commandos 2 or 3.

I'm wondering if Pyro can even now compete with the likes of
BF1942, MOH...etc in first person type game.

Hey, the original Commandos was very cool.

I'm getting tired of these peek-a-boo, I'll shoot you, games.
The kill satisfaction ain't that great when the enemies go down
in this game. The graphics are OK, a little flat looking.
Movement and shooting are OK too, bullets coming out are just
white tracer types...almost like rain textures.

Pretty ho-hum (yawn).
