Crysis Patch Within Two Weeks

A Crysis Chat Log on inCrysis recaps last night's IRC session (story) with Crytek's Cevat Yerli and NVIDIA's Roy Taylor discussing the just-released first-person shooter. Technical topics are the focus, touching on questions about XP performance versus Vista and things like that. Word from NVIDIA is to expect performance improvements "almost with every single driver drop and patch of the game," and there's also word from Crytek on when to expect the first patch for the game: "We are collecting up all the user feedback now and planning patches that will address as much as possible as fast as possible. The first patch will be out in 7-14 days."

lol, you're a total asshat.
You need to seriously chill out. I didnít offend your mother or a dead relative; I merely criticised the developers of a COMPUTER GAME.

NEWSFLASH, THE BEST GRAPHICS CARD AVAILABLE HAS BEEN AVAILABLE FOR A FULL YEAR. A year. In computer hardware. Is. A. Long. Time. If it's anyone's problem it's nVidia's for not fucking releasing a 9800 when they should have.
Firstly, the 8800Ultra was only released 6 months ago. Secondly, Crysis was delayed for an entire year; it was due to be released when the 8800GTX was the top performing graphics card. Therefore, the developers had an entire year to optimise the engine and still failed. Also, I really disagree that nVidia AND ATi are to blame for Crytek releasing a poorly optimised game Ė that is especially true when COD4, TF2, Bioshock and UT3 all look and run great. You can stomp and shout as much as you like but it is Crytek that are to blame; not consumers, capitalism, the price of oil or the downturn in the US economy. Also, a year isnít any longer than usual in the graphics market Ė itís usually a year until the next model of graphics card comes out, with the 9xxx series delayed slightly until early next year. Instead nVidia released an updated product line that brought the top-end of the market much closer to the average consumer.

Crytek succeeded because they made the best-looking computer game, by far, seen yet.
That's your opinion. There is no disputing that the engine is technically impressive but I prefer the engines of other games Ė the ones that look great AND run well. I prefer the animations and lip-sync that went into Source/TF2; I prefer the atmosphere that went into Bioshock; I prefer the AI that went into COD4; etc. I like the new water in Crysis, the gun animations and other technical elements but overall, to me, it falls flat. I donít claim to speak for everyone or even a significant number of people Ė I am just calling it as I see it.
Doom 3, by most accounts a lackluster game, did the same thing.
That was another game that I disliked the engine to. It was technically accomplished but didnít impress me Ė I disliked it from the first screenshots I saw.

Have you already forgotten Hellgate and Gears of War?
Hellgate wasnít a AAA title Ė it was hyped to be but it was always an underdog AND it turned out to blow chunks. As for Gear of War I cannot comment because I havenít played it on PC Ė I only have a mess about with it on the X360 near release, though because it was a port and has been delayed I never considered it a AAA title.

I highly doubt even the men at Crytek thought they'd be releasing their labors unto a stagnant hardware market incapable of supporting their product.
Iím sure they were hoping that a faster graphics card would come along so that their game didnít look shit but running a business based on ďhopeĒ isnít a very clever thing to do.

And the stupid thing is, a LOT of people complained about it in Farcry. I guess in Crytek's mind doing the exact same thing, but replacing "mutants" with "aliens" is somehow better.
I knew it would end up the same as Far Cry when I first read about the plot. Itís ridiculous for them to accept the mutants as the weakest link and then go and swap them out for the same fucking thing. At least with Valve they accepted that the alien ending to Half-Life blew and omitted it from Half-Life 2.
