I got Crysis 2 when it was $12 on sale. I have never finished it due to time constraints but thought what I played was good. I have less time to game now so I'll skip release but will keep an eye out and pick up Crysis 3 when the price is right.

I was unimpressed with the MP Beta. I thought the graphics were really good, but I wish the beta would have also included at least a portion of one zone or something.

I did enjoy single player compain on first two. This one should be good as well, I am planning picking it up when price drops a little. I wonder if my 5870 can handle it. Will find out I guess.

Might wait till the price drops. I have Crysis 2 (& 1) and from what I played in the Crysis 3 MP beta recently, it seems like almost the same exact game as #2. Atleast the multiplayer portion anyways. I'm content to just play Crysis 2 when I need a Crysis fix and waiting until the price is right for Crysis 3.

I don't nearly hate on Origin as much as I used to. It doesn't bother me too much anymore. So it has no longer become a barrier to entry for me. I just plain, flat out dislike EA... and that's putting it nicely. But I still enjoy some of their games and begrudgingly purchase their games on the off chance that I really want to play.

I polished off Crysis 2 about 3 weeks ago in preparation. I got Crysis 3 for free when I picked up a second copy of BF3 for my stepson--not sure if I would have bought it otherwise until it was $30.

The second one was really good, and I felt I got my money's worth--the story turned out to be surprisingly good despite only being told and unfolding from a single perspective.

I might jump on my second 7970 just for this.

I will borrow it from the library, finish SP, then bring it back. And by library I mean usenet.

I never finished Crysis 2 but I did caught up with the story by watching a video IGN made. I admit the plot twists are nice, so I'd be happy to dive in.

You think Crysis 3 will ever make it to Steam?

EA's always online drm, complete disregard for consumer rights, how EA destroys most smaller studios they buy/their franchises.

At 2560x1600
with everything on very high
and FXAA

I get 25-35 fps...with GTX680 4GB SLI!

Forget running MSAA, unplayable at that res.

Gorgeous game for sure. Star Citizen will look amazing.

Just updated to a pair of 7950's so the game is free. Downloading right now.

The only beef is that the game is only available through Origin (had to install the thing.)

I've said it before and I'll say it again--Origin and Steam are nearly identical--both have offline modes and both have forced a binding arbitration agreement into their EULAs that preempts class action lawsuits.

I use both and really have to try hard to think of anything substantially different, except that Steam has better sales.

What EA has done to Bioware is another story, however, but they are still one of my favorite devs.

I know they aren't that differen't if EA didn't own/run origin I'd have no problem with it.

I dunno, I have a hard time getting on board with combining politics and games into some sort of boycott. Growing up, my mom boycotted China. Look at the good that did...

I think we should save that level of caring for starving kids and such, but to each his/her own I guess.

Crytek: Crysis 3 looks better on PCs than on next-gen consoles

Today's PCs are already better than tomorrow's consoles.

$3000 gaming pc? Most people don't spend that much on a pc, still though a $1000 pc should beat the next gen of consoles.

Ah, here we go again with "most people."

I'll abstain from here on out. I've already made clear my opinion on that line of reasoning.

Normally I'd be right there with you, but when a big name company talks about $500 console not being able to compete with a $3k pc it kinda looks to me like hes enforcing the negative stereotype that a pc *needs* to be several thousand dollars just to have better graphics than a cheap console. Heck I'd have no problem dropping that much on a rig, myself, just kinda the way he worded it that set me off. I could be wrong though about what hes saying, I'm running on about 6 hours of sleep for the last 48 hours. Yay college!

i watched about 40 min of game play it looks fun to me, Force said on highest graphics on his rig that he couldnt get it to 60 fps, he also said that Total Biscuit couldnt get it to 60 fps either, so apparently its a resource hog

It's not a resource hog. It's a Crysis.
