My DirectX 9 AMD X1950 Pro 512mb AGP, 32bit XP on a 1600x1200 20.1" LCD is lactating in fear of higher-quality details at my higher res.

i love how its under the 360 previews section. Its not even been verified by any consoles, especially not in the graphical incarnation that's represented.
it's also sad that the consoles are not capable of DX10 instructions. (both the RSX and Xenos are based off DX9 tech, and are not coded for the latest pixel shaders and whatnot).

regardless, although it may come out, in some incarnation, for the PS3 (and possibly 360), its not verified. Only news is there are people hired to code/port games, at Crysis, for the PS3. Here's to hoping, although I'd prefer the DX10 flavor on my PC, and mouse and keyboard. :)


here's question though:
is there any official word, or even mumblings, as to when Crysis will be released? It seems the gaming websites are pegging early January as the release, and that hasn't seemed to changed, well, since I've been following the hopeful release date.

Yes, you can pick up, throw and even beat people with live chickens. You can pick up, throw and beat people with anything smaller than a car, and in this we include wheelbarrows, spades, tree trunks, grown men and even most of a car. At one point in our playtest we shot a man?s helmet off, caught it, beat him to the ground with it, shot him again and dropped it on his body. Anything smaller than a tree can be held in your left hand while you fire with your right, even when you?re using an assault rifle or shotgun, so alternating between bonging people with a spade and shooting them in the face is seamless. They even encourage you to beat people when they?re down by introducing a chance that a fallen soldier will get back up if you don?t. This, again, is what a game should be about.
:laugh:

Ok, I'm still reading, and this was too funny to ignore, yet very impressive...

But here?s the really crazy part: it took Crytek two years to make it possible to shoot a tree in half. They got it working the day before they had to demo it to the press, a video of the presentation quickly went online, and just as quickly racked up 50 million downloads. So it was worth doing, but it was inordinately hard.

A big part of the reason for that is that the AI has to understand that a fallen chunk of tree is cover. It has to deal with and exploit an environment that can dramatically change with every gunshot. When they first implemented this, Senior Game Designer Bernd Diemer discovered that he could grab a fallen tree and hold it in front of him to become completely invisible to the AI. This tactic is frowned upon in the real military as unsporting, so it had to be tactfully explained to the AI that a walking tree is deeply suspicious.

Bwahaha, that is a classic line, right there.

Crysis looks really nice, and sounds fun to play, but Alan Wake is the game that will motivate me to buy a DX10 card.

:confused:

Crysis was announced in January 2006, two months after the 360's launch. AFAIK they haven't set any official dates, but hopefully we can get something by 2008.

I've read rumblings over at AW forums about 2008. Q3 or so, maybe.

Me too. I'm not sure if I will pre-order or wait until it is out though.

I can't wait. I think it will have a good deal of replay value even on single player mode. Multi is going to be FUN!!!

Just a 500-600 dollar video card. (Next Generation of course)

and possibly a processor, and an extra gig of ram in my case

I admit that I will go all out for Crysis -- as silly as it sounds. As for my other games, running BF2 already @ 14xSSAA means I should use 64xAA with SLI 8900 GTXs :D

severe in CoJ and Lost Planet in my experience ...

i am playing on my CRT at 11x8/12x9 because i can't get enough details on my LCD at 14x9

the solution is a second GPU for me
