Morricone - what a genius we have lost. He was such a great composer and had no problem standing toe to toe with even great directors when he felt they did not use his score in the best way. Ask e.g. Tarantino - he was called out by Morricone more than once.
Ennio Morricone and 3 films by Sergio Leone.
The bad, the good and the ugly (Eastwood and a boundless Eli Wallach)
My name is nobody (Terence Hill, Henry Fonda)
Duck you sucker (The heroes of Mesa Verde, Rod Steiger, James Coburn)
And so much more ... exquisite sensibility.
Now, make music for the heavens, maestro.

I'm with Walt. This whole things sounds ridiculous.

They should partner with 50 Cent and open 60 Cent Studios.

Ugh, don't tell me Cyberpunk 2077 is going to try to force me to finally upgrade my desktop from Windows 8.1.
Microsoft, you have until November to add DX12 to Windows 8.1 .
Why are you using 8.1? That OS was crap, and I mean that. The OS had a really bad problem with indexing and it caused all kinds of performance issues. Thats why Microsoft moved away from it so quickly. Trust me, I was one of those who held out till the end on moving over to Win 10. but the OS has come a long way since the start, and the newer 1903 ver is very solid. You will see a drastic performance gain when you get off 8.1. trust me on that one, I'm a network Admin, that OS was pure shit.
The desktop is gaming only, and so far no issues with 8.1 on it. This laptop is Windows 10, newest patches, and no real issues so far, I just haven't overcome the inertia to buy a Win10 license for 60 to 140+ USD, some of questionable legitimacy, etc. Any game until now that was DX12 only I just skipped, or played on the laptop if I really needed to. I can't even think of a DX12 only game that I actually wanted to get off the top of my head, aside from now Cyberpunk 2077.
As far as indexing, I disable that on any PC I'm running, purely for performance/HD/SSD thrashing issues. The main argument used to be preventing the phoning home, but MS has added that crap to Windows 8.1 and even Windows 7 apparently? Another question has been whether it's better to just build a new desktop, since my current one is 5+ years old, etc.
I don't know, I'll make up my mind before Cyberpunk 2077 is out and patched up enough to be playable.

Honestly, disappointed, I was wanting to see side by side comparisons in this video. They literally blew that one.
I looked at DSO's comparisons, and it does look better, but the price point in this is going to be the deal breaker if they want to much.
The first comparison screenshots come from Resetera’s c0Zm1c and Last_colossi. These members have compared the beach area, in which we see less palm tress in a specific section. Furthermore, the lighting does not appear as natural as in the original/vanilla version. Crysis Remastered in these scenes looks a bit cartoon-ish to be honest. It also reminded more of Far Cry and less of Crysis. The mountain in the background is also less detailed, with less trees.
Crytek has claimed that it has improved the game’s textures, so we’ll have to wait and see. From the looks of it, though, the textures differences will be minimal at best. Not only that, but all the old HD Texture Packs for the original Crysis appear to be better than what Crytek will be offering.
The second comparison comes from Resetera’s Riflen and compares a cut-scene. In this comparison, we can see major artistic differences between Crysis Remastered and Crysis Vanilla. This comparison also showcases some of the new effects that Crytek has added to the remaster. However, some may not like the overly saturated looks of the remaster.
It looks like an arcade machine but in fact it’s a portal between worlds.I bet it's Polybius.
