News Comments > Crysis 3 Open Beta Begins; Tutorial Video

Well, the Hunter mode is kinda entertaining... But after C2, I won't be paying more than 5$ for anything coming from Crytek.

Why they go with Crysis open beta again? Back with the 2nd it exposed a shitload of issues that made it pristine/untouched to retail... until well a month after release.

Why they even do beta? They didn't fix ANYTHING AT ALL from Crysis 2 beta, with rampant cheating and unfixed glitches that prevailed until well a month after retail was shipped.

I tried this a few months ago, thought that it was a very slow game and it didn't pull me in. But... since it's F2P, and they have worked on it for a bit since then, I'll give it another try.
F2P? Then, I will skip its beta then.
All the microtransactions are cosmetic, well you can purchase 2 additional stash tabs, and more character slots... but you begin with enough of both.

It's fine, but it's not the super-duper-son-of-diablo2-messiah-thing everyone hypes about... Still WAY behind D2. Will provide a couple of weeks of entertaining tough.

Also I don't understand all the hype about the PASSIVE tree, because everyone calling it "skill tree" is hugely misleading. It's a "passive skill tree", so all those spots in the tree are things like "+10int" or "+3% fire damage"... ultimately you can reach spots with bigger bonuses, or about 20 major passives, but that's it. Calling it skill (ot talent) tree makes it seem a lot better than it really is.

The skill gems touch is nice, but it's like D3 skills+rune implemented into items, making it harder to people to get into... and can lead people into make huge mistakes, like selling items with leveled gems socketed.

Also I read people praising the "smooth launch"... WHAT?! I logged in 2 minutes before opening and I was like 3100th in queue, if they can't handle that, they'd better leave bussiness. The servers crashed after playing for like 3 hours, it's not hard to get out of sync with the server, and I spent 1 hour to download a 7mb patch.

I think people is trying too hard to like this game :/

I hate Gog.com sales. I don't want a dozen games for 25$ or nothing, they never have single game offers for a big portion of their catalog.

I'll probably get the DLC - for the 8 bucks I paid the main game was solid entertainment. I think the hate for the game itself was a little over-blown but people tend to expect more from id despite the fact they consistently under-deliver because of the way they revolutionized gaming long ago. It helps to remember that id lost its magic years ago, and that above average is the best they can really aspire to. Given that, RAGE was enjoyable enough.

At least I enjoy Rage over the sheer borefest that is Borderlands... I got the 2nd one free with my new videocard, and it still was expensive.

For me, while RAGE was decent entertainment, Borderlands utterly buries it in every conceivable way. RAGE's world was completely lifeless and dull despite having some decent action and races. Borderlands world felt alive and exciting.
+1 to your first paragraph, if only we could have more decent, entertaining, well paced corridor shooters like this... you know, I'm f****** tired of being pinned down behind cover.

And about Borderlands, after a gazillion hours of WoW, me (and many people I guess) will loathe any quest desing that even loosely resembles the forementioned one... and the stupid, lame, senseless humour doesn't help at all. I remember Handsome Jack blabbering about his horse called something that wasn't funny at all... and he came back talking again about it minutes later!

I think my favorite part of the RAGE launch was when Carmack said the following things (paraphrased):

1) "It's all Nvidia's and AMD's fault for not having the right drivers! The CUSTOM drivers we run it with here at the office have no issues whatsoever!"
While this is true, it's also Nvidia & Ati fault. Ati has always sucked in opengl, and they probably hadn't updated their opengl shit for years when Rage came out. Most of the offended people was also using multi-screen, and man... they always pop up with all kind of weird problems when any major launch happens.

...and Carmack opened his last keynote with apologies about this.

I don't think it's hate to point out Rage is an extremely unambitious game with many half baked features. I shelled out $60 for it on launch day and found it to be the definition of average. I'm a huge id fan so I really wanted it to be good but it was just really ho-hum.
Probably, that's why I almost never ever shell full price for any game unless I know for sure I'll spend a lot of time on it regardless of it's qualities.

I paid 20 for Rage, and I'm throwing more cash at it without hesitation... So it's already worth ~25-30$ for me
