Really only a game you could play with close friends, between the random stupid things you could do to grief other people and the advent of wallhacks and aimbots it wouldn't make for a good time pubbing.

Not to mention it's most likely player hosted with no host migration.

The best mods for this game are Xliveless which removes the games for windows live crap, felt like I got a performance boost by doing that too. First person view mod is really cool as well, mostly for when you're on foot.

The improved lighting is really nice in mods like this one but I turn off 80% of the rest of the "enhancements" like motion blur and bloom.

News Comments > Crytek Gets Funds for "Transitional Phase"
14. Re: Crytek Gets Funds for Jul 25, 2014, 20:14 DangerDog
 
I don't want Crytek to fail, I just want them to get back to making decent games again.

Making free-2-fail, quicktime even driven console drivel or some MOBA clone isn't going to cut it.

As generous as their offer to make games with CryEngine is I just don't see there being enough talent to make that happen, not when everywhere you turn people are putting out tutorial vids on making games with Unreal Engine or Unity.

Yeah I always thought it was delusional when they would talk about Crysis being this huge franchise, the whole nano-suit thing always felt more like a gimmick to explain the gameplay mechanic of having god like powers.

When they did the multiplayer beta for Crysis 1 it just felt completely off, people were giving suggestions on how to improve the game but it was this whole awkward feeling of trying to be Battlefield like with vehicles and yet you are a one man army so no need for squads filling up specific tasks and vehicles didn't belong when you could just nano-speed-boost around the map on foot.

Hiring some bigwig sci-fi author to write the story for Crysis 2, really? That story was so generic anyone could come up with it on the back of a napkin while eating pizza and drinking beer. I think they even did a toy line tie in with Crysis 3.

It all went to their head in a bad way.

This game on Steam Early Access had me ROFLing pretty hard so I thought I'd share. The user reviews are particularly good.

they need to roll this into star citizen as one of the occupations you can have in the game.

Their free-to-fail "warcry" shooter was only successful in Russia, as far as I've read. How much revenue that means to them, probably not a whole lot.

I wonder how bad of a failure their Ryse game was on xbox. Seems like they bet too much on the success of these projects and opened offices all over the world and buying up defunct studios, suddenly their check bounced.

You don't hear anything about their CryEngine subscription platform, Unreal Engine 4 pretty much dominates in terms of attracting a user base.

Wow, that Manhattan show looks worse that I thought it would. It looked like they were about to break out in a song and dance routine in that short clip.

While it's impressive that they can get it working on Android I don't see content rich games being applicable to that platform if for no other reason the lack of storage space on many Android devices, never mind the lack of graphics processing on the majority of the devices.

Looking at a finely crafted cinematic just makes you realize that you need an Epic sum of money to make a real game with Unreal Engine.

interpretation: No way in hell are we going to go up against Grand Theft Auto V and release at the same time.

I think they just need more time to create assets that aren't ripped directly from Battlefield 3/4.

the beta was fun, just hope they don't screw it up and go full retard making it a call of duty clone.

They're pretty vague on what you get with the "Lifetime Expansion" thing, they've shown off extra textures for ships but I don't think that content falls under "expansion".

I like what I read, but there's NO WAY they can deliver all that in Q4 2014... Not without huge sacrifices... I haven't really been following this project, but I do know how long it takes to make a good game.

It's really just down to how clever they can get with automating the mission/quest scripts into the game. The universe is just a giant spreadsheet of locations and items that you trade. I don't think there's going to be any massive audio recordings to go along with the procedural missions.

The release of the game will just be Elite with better graphics. The landing on planets and walking around your ship stuff will come later.

I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't hit the 30th anniversary date of Elite for release which is in September. Either way even when they do release it'll be a work in progress for quite some time.

The only enjoyable thing to do in sims is to make a pool, get your sim in the pool and then take away the ladder.
