Companies that develop for PC have my support and will get my money. Crytek can go to hell.
DX10 was also somewhat of an afterthought on crysis. There was an outrage about VH being locked to DX10 and most agreed on the fact that they used some part of DX10 but it wasn't build around it. I guess it was similar to DX11 in BC2 or something.
@Bolded nope, this is crysis2-designed-from-the-ground-up-to-work-on-both-consoles-and-pc

Those don't just randomly pop up like a stiffy in middle school. The editors are EXTREMELY important, even for those that don't specifically use them...just for that purpose. So we can benefit from community mods. No editor, no mods.
Second part that's wrong:
This is FREAKING CRYSIS 2. Umm, hello? Crysis 1 has been the graphical benchmark since 2007. Crysis 1 is the ENTIRE REASON that I have the rig that I have today (well, that and GTA IV). I couldn't rest until I could max out both of those games with mods.
Of COURSE we have high expectations for the graphics on Crysis 2. It's freaking Crysis! Durr.
Seriously, how did you first hear about Crysis? I'll bet MONEY on it that you first heard about Crysis by the famed joke "can it run Crysis" because Crysis was such a graphics phenomenon for its day (still is).
If you seriously don't care about graphics, then you honestly would be better fit playing a silly little console toy
ah I see, so, it's personal now? I mean how can Crytek mess up crysis so badly, your rig must be crying now, rofl, but, seriously, dude, stop being so condescending @ underlined. I mean, do you really think those who play on a console are going to care what you think about graphics? Fact of the matter is, those who own both a pc and console will tell you that they serve their own purposes and should remain as so
I own a wii and my rig. Do I really think I care about the graphics on the wii? If I did, I wouldn't have gotten it in the first place
BTW, I heard about crysis because I was pretty activate on the Nvidia forum when I built my rig and as a result, I gave the demo a try then bought the full version shortly after
Had nothing to do with the "Can it run crysis" jokes.

For the advanced option config, who cares? It's a set of options that allows you to choose a greater shade of greys instead of white, grey and black (Low, Medium or High Detail). You were going to play the game for it's graphics? If so, sit back and think of how much of gamer you really are.
All this crying, for the sake of crying.
I agree, especially with that bolded part!

ROFL get over it. The 'community' is a bunch of childish whiners who talk the talk but don't walk the walk. They FILL forums with their rants and cries and in reality they're 3% of the PC gaming community!
And btw, whats with the hypocritical notion that the < 3% of PC gamers can cry their own personal tsunami to attack Crysis 2 island, but the other 97% of us can't defend it? I'm part Japanese btw so don't give me any flak for using the words 'tsunami' and 'island'
Please for the love of god, take me back to 2004, before all the console fanboys jumped over to the PC side and made us as bad as them.
True indeed, OCN has become too much of a whinefest lately

As for avoiding threads where people are whining, that would be most of the news threads on OCN. People whining about ATi drivers, Nvidia's cards that can fry an egg, Apple's expensive products that can't run flash, PC games that are console ports, etc.
Thank you, most don't seem to comprehend that message. NO developer owes you anything. You like crysis 2, buy it, you don't like it, don't buy it, it's really that simple. Let those who will/might enjoy the game play it and go play another game or something

I agree, they really need to go outside. Follow these steps:
1. Press start
2. Click shutdown
3. Turn off monitor and speakers.
4. Open the door and go outside
To answer some of the ideas above, DX11 could be patched in and will be. There is a good chance that it's locked and when they release the patch, it'll unlock the options. Personally, I could careless about graphics settings, since, I try to set everything to max. If I can't, then I go to the next lowest one, much nicer that way instead of having to tweak every single setting for the best fps, but, that's me and everything has their own opinion. I haven't decided if I will preorder yet but I might just go and buy it directly from the store, no need to preorder then
