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.
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.
EA's always online drm, complete disregard for consumer rights, how EA destroys most smaller studios they buy/their franchises.
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. -- Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
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. -- Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
I'll abstain from here on out. I've already made clear my opinion on that line of reasoning. -- Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
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 -- Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau!
