All I know is that I personally put together a computer from scratch for under $900 that absolutely did play Crysis on High details

Same here. I built a new machine from scratch back in Feb. Cost about $815 with Q6600, 4GB DDR2, 8800GTS G92. I run Crysis on high at 720p resolution. Average framerate is 35-37. That being an avg, there are times when it dips below the OMGTHATDIDNTJUSTHAPPEN 30fps level, but its rare.

The recent D3 announcement stirred up some nostalgia and I reinstalled D2 last night. I was so surprised to see 44k players still playing D2. That's ridiculous. Damn blizzard, they need to make games that don't last forever. Imagine those 44k players playing newer games and funding higher budget new projectes! LOL.

Piracy isn't hurting PC sales. Its blizzard games.

I enjoyed Crysis, and the MP is good. Sad they didn't follow up with the balance issues, but I'd probably pick up warhead just the same. There's negativism towards Crysis that's mostly unfounded. Prior to the release of the 8800GT, Crysis was only playable at medium settings (yes at medium, not low, medium). But I'd guess from looking at the sales of those new modern cards, most FPS players can play at high now. Point is, its not that bad, and never was, as what everyone makes it out to be, but jumping on the hate wagon is THE thing to do these days.

Is Asustek and Asus the same company? I always thought they were.

I don't think its D3. Not to be pessimistic, but it doesnt make sense with those references from their 3 games franchises. I bet the super secret announcement is that Soul Calibur 4 will have 3 playable characters one from each *craft universe. =p Kerrigan, Thrall and the Skeleton King.

Movie looks really cool, can't wait to see it. Movie-tie-in video game? Not so much.

I guess sites can now post reviews of the game. Sounds like its not terrible, averaging scores in the 70s?

Personally, i've not been interested in id's offerings since Quake 3, and i preferred Quake 2 over Quake 3.

Same here. Q3 was fun for a quick deathmatch or CTF, but even then CTF wasn't as good as Q2CTF. Q2 holds a special place in my heart. Q3 was just filler for me.

Looks like a very cool "thinking outside the box" idea. I think it'll make for a very fun experience. I'm just wary at how valve projects often start out with only a handful of maps, and players get overexcited about it and play them to death. But knowing valve, they'll continue to support the game and add content as time goes on, so its all good.

I remember hearing about the game billed as "makers of diablo" and "diablo dungeon crawling" and I got really excited. The setting was intriguing. Then I saw the initial screenshots from the beta and *belch*, it looked like crap. I figure that was just because it was still beta. By the time the game was near launch and I saw the same screenshots, I knew it couldn't be good. You can tell alot from screenshots. Inspired artwork, polished interface, mood and tone of the setting and atmosphere.

agreed, Transformers was almost exactly what I expected, with the exceptions of that terrible garden scene and the entire "code cracking" subplot.
Spot on, I agree with this. Transformers was what I expected, an action packed special effects completely-unrelated-to-the-original spectacle, but a spectable nonetheless.

Agree with all the other posters here about X3 and SM3, they both blow. In X3, the part where they had to make their "last stand", it was so cheesy that I think I saw Hugh Jackman cringe. And Toby Mcguire, well I thought he was a good actor until SM3. SM3 should have been totally about either venom or sandman, but not both. The venom saga was long, so I didn't think they would be able to fit all of it into one movie, and I was right.

Crysis was NOT Vista or Dx10 exclusive. It had Dx9/XP native support. How you ever got this idea is beyond me. If you own it like you say you do, look at the System Requirements on the box.
Yes I know that. I'm playing on XP. And I do own the game, bought it to justify my 8800GTS, but ended up enjoying the gameplay and MP. What I meant was, that DX10 was exclusive to Vista, and Crysis being the first widely recognized DX10 games, the negativity from MS->Vista->DX10 transfered over to the game somehow.

Where did they say anything about warzone?

Crysis was actually a good game, but thanks to people loving to jump on the I hate M$/vista bandwagon, it got bad press thanks to its DX10 exclusivity. Still I played the game through and MP as well, and while its not perfect, but its definitely a AAA production title. Hopefully now that more people have 8800GT+ cards, more might buy crysis and this new warhead game/expansion.

How long is L4D expected to be anyway? 6-8 hours of play time? I'm guessing it'd be less.

Not to sound like a fan boy, but its true, when Valve says its done, its done. The polish they put on their games are unmatched by all except for maybe blizzard. Anxiously awaiting EP3

Fail. Heat stress begins a 60*C. A card may run in to the 80s but that in no way suggests that it's "fine".
Got any data to back that up? I work in the EE field, and we make designs where 85C degrees is where the initial warnings go out and 100C is when we start to throttle down. Now I can't say for all chips, but in general I wouldn't be alarmed until I see anything hotter than 80. Bear in mind also that this is only under load. Normal operating conditions (windows, net surfing, spreadsheets), it probably stays at 40-50.

I'd agree that piracy is a concern for games on the PC. But for Crysis specifically, I think most people are just turned away by the high system requirements. Players prefer not to play an FPS rather than deal with dizzy sub 30fps and "medium" or "low" quality. I have Crysis, and a 8800GTS and it looks and plays great. Its a fantastic game, MP rocks. Not alot of people are online which is sad, but mainly due to the fact that most can't play the game without a $1500 gaming rig. Oh and the bugs kinda kill the MP.
