I for myself liked the mp too but all the rest is a big fail ATM and saying that final version that's out a month from the MP demo or DX11 patch will fix everything is a bit naive don't you think ?
I can see all the people that now say 'the game is not out yet so we can't tell' will say 'DX11 patch is not out yet so we can't tell' after the game ships.
If you;re happy with how the game looks/feels now that's fine just don't tell us we should be happy too , and most importantly don't go around calling people idiots because you can't be bothered to read though all the posts , it's making you look as ignorant as our rapper couple posts back.
i wasnt implying anything about a "DX11 patch" thats going to fix anything, personally i think thats the worst decision they can make, patching in stuff like that. coz it will look tacked on, simply coz it will be tacked on. what we get on release day will imo be it, if they try make it better later they will hurt it.
unless for some crazy reason they coded the game with DX11 and ran into some kind of trouble and cant release the DX11 version files just yet coz its not ready or whatever. thats highly unlikely but really the only way DX11 will work in this title if its not there from launch. otherwise just dont do it.
if you have played the BETA, and you were able to run it on Hardcore with your maximum resolution, i cant understand why you would not be happy with the game visually, especially from a DirectX9 point of view? name 1 DirectX9 game that looks and runs better? Crysis 1? in all honesty, i rekon a lot of the Crysis 2 BETA had much better visuals over the vanilla Crysis 1. its only when modders took control of the original Crysis that we saw the true beauty in the engine. and unless you have the correct hardware, Crysis 1 still today is the most demanding game bar maybe a couple of other titles.
the MP demo has already been confirmed as a direct port of the Xbox version. it was supposed to give us a quick taste of what the online will be like. was a bad move by Crytek to give something like that to the elitist PC community already accustomed to Crysis 1, but they did it anyway and hopefully, they netted a lot of new fans. that was their intention i imagine.
and you're missing the reason why im pissed at what everyone is saying. they are boycotting the game basically, and labelling it a failure, coz it doesnt have the latest DirectX API? they are disregarding the fact that the game could actually be fun, im actually implying most of them really do like it, but coz of this particular feature, it all of a sudden sucks? and it fails? and then to say it looks like crap? compared to what? Crysis 1? ... what, is that it? sure ill throw Metro 2033 out there, which imo even looks better than Crysis 1 in some areas. but can everyone run it, hell no. not in its highest form. and then theres a lot of people questioning the real gain of DX11 over DX9 in that title.
if Crysis 2 stays the way it is most people will be able to run it. wouldnt you rather have hundreds more people to verse online rather than a select few people only able to run the game provided they have adequate water cooling and an ambient room temp of -20c?
or is it that people still arnt willing to accept that Crysis 1 was so far ahead of its time, that its extremely hard to live up to? whats wrong with that anyway?
and yes, i stand strong that to render a game a failure and refuse to buy it without having ever played it, is idiotic. no i probably shouldnt have directly called him an idiot, i apologise, but it is still a stupid way to look at something.
me read through all the posts first. funny. not only have i done that already, but you dont need too. read a couple of posts, the rest are all the same. the hearder spoke, the sheep followed.
people are always too ready to jump on the hate bandwagon for something rather than support what they get and see the good side in anything, its sad.
