Well said. Why would someone say that Crysis 2 has no dx10? It does have dx10 so far i heard. There is a dx10 folder? Did someone fail to mention we will get the sandbox 3 this summer? *facepalm* We'll make it better be patience!

Noo.. MUST CAN'T CLICK.. MUST RESIST or i'll spoil myself! *REACHES for button* NOOO the AGONY! *Tells myself* "I can wait tomorrow.." OH dammit i can't stand it! *Reaches button..* Great a little part of excitement in me just died. Please put *spoiler* warning next time!


Isn't this a console review? Doesn't look pc but yes i can tell the Bloom is reduced but i cannot even tell if he's playing a pc version. If so what kind of loser who needs a controller for fps pc games? Thank god they removed auto aim from what i heard. I would never NEVER use a controller for pc games at ALL. Stick it to console users and i mock'em for using it for a computer. It just doesn't belong there. If you had a joystick then that's fine because it'd make sense to use it for Flight Sims. Just my 2cent.

I didn't realize DX11 was recommended. But really, it is an easy way of saying "We recommend one of the current-gen cards for this game", rather than saying "Nvidia 4xx or 5xx or ATi 5xxx or AMD 6xxx".

The 5% is fine, no other way to tell but they also include laptop figures, basically any PC hooked up to Steam is included in those numbers. There are millions upon millions of non-gaming PCs with DX9 integrated gpus that skew the results of Steam. Crytek said that an official announcement is coming about DX11, we are still waiting but the feature wasn't optional, it's good you know now though. A few people have been saying it was optional, I'll believe that from IW or Epic Games, but with Crytek nothing is optional.

So now you are calling me a tool because I want my investment to be used at it's full potential, before I upgrade them again ?
But now your just ramming your opinion down peoples throat's and expecting them to take your word as gold.

I buy games for fun also, but this isn't the point, as you said all new cards are DX11 we can agree on that, so the question stands "Why aren't we using it?"

I mean for F S I still play UT III, ETQW, Star Wars BattleFront II. So I really don't think that graphics is a huge issue wit me.

But lets get real here, this is "CRYSIS". What does that name mean to you ?

Drama, bashing, etc.

In order to maintain a professional, friendly atmosphere, at no time will drama, bashing, or other such activities be acceptable. Posts and threads falling under this category should be reported, and the posters will receive warnings or infractions. Keep things constructive and polite, and things will run very smoothly. "White" text is not allowed.

if you have a good leg to stand on in a debate then you don't need to caps lock a whole paragraph, you don't need to use profanity, you don't need to call someone an idiot, and you don't need to read between the lines of rules to get by.

i'm not arguing about this. i know you can make your point in a constructive manner far better than you did. if you don't want to be reported then abide by the rules better. it shows a bad example for others and completely derails the purpose of the thread topic at hand.
First off, thank you for not tearing me apart like most would.

Second, I wasn't attempting to bash.. but it might of come off that way, people were making drama out of it, not me.

But yes, I edited it to show the point I was trying to make.

I am just tired of people blaming piracy for everything, I mean you see it everyday on this forum.

Idiot was a well used term, I meant it by description not as a insult.

The term "fing" or FFFFFUUUUU or some other random way to say the Fword, is just ridiculous. I see it 24/7 on here, and no one ever points it out.

I once got in troublt for saying ****. Thats just stars, Like you can get in trouble for doing stars ***** ***** **** *** ** ** * * *.

But yes, I edited it.

P.S: To all the people who want this thread to get on track it's on page like 40. Most threads don't survive on a single topic for too long.

There's 3 graphics settings. Big difference. And I knowingly paid for it because when I used the demo it ran the highest setting without an issue. Why do I need to adjust the graphics if I'm already running at max?

Also to those saying DX11 doesn't matter, you double standard little children. Why is it that I see most people with a DX11 card ?.
These are the same people saying it doesn't matter, go figure.

Also looking for a reason to justify my purchase of DX11 cards, damn strait you little kids, "what would be the other reasons for buying a DX11 card ?"

I am pissed about this crap, another group of people happy with another DX9 game when we have DX11. I am seriously puzzled as to why people are happy with this crap.

If the game is fun then good on it, but I would of thought that it would of been a higher priority to have the best graphics, and that is DX11.
But what ever, all the developers have to do now is pump out a POS like COD and all the little kiddies will eat it all up.

It's this that is holding the gaming back, nothing more.
Dx 11 is cool, don't get me wrong, but it's not important. I bought a 5850 because it was the best bang for the buck almost exactly 1 yr ago.

And when I mention people getting mad @ Crysis 2 b/c they can't justify their GPU purchase, I'm talking about people who bought far more GPU than they needed JUST for Crysis 2. The people that don't really care how good of a GAME Crysis 2 is b/c they're too busy thinking about how they could have easily spent 1/2 as much on a GPU and still maxed out 9/10ths of todays games with +60 fps.

Lastly, I'm tired of PC Elitists downing console games or talking about console players as kiddies. Almost everyone here started out as a console player. Besides, it's quite obvious that we have plenty of immature players in our own ranks. While MW2 isn't on Half-Life 2, Crysis or Metro 2033's level, it's not crap. It's a fun game ( made by an evil company ) and games, first and foremost, are meant to be fun. The more fun a game is, the more it will sell, simple as that. Those of you who are more concerned about benchmarking and what version of DirectX a game is using aren't really gamers.

We aren't using Dx 11 in new games b/c only 5.6% of the entire PC gaming community can run it and of that small portion, i'd imagine less than 50% of the 5.6% could run a GAME that uses Dx 11. I can barely run the Unigine Heaven benchmark and that's just a tech bench. Imagine what your frames would dip to if you were running around shooting while 10 other enemies were shooting back. It'd be single frames.

As I've said before, look at Metro 2033. I can run that game without too many issues but if I throw a grenade, my FPS drops to single digits until the dust settles.

Don't blame game Devs for the lack of advances, blame the economy. It's having a much larger impact on games than you think it is. Lots of people are cutting out unnecessary purchases like GPUs, which is why the steam survey for Dx 11 has only moved 1% or so in the last year. Lots of Devs are downgrading their budgets b/c of the expected dip in sales, which means not taking risks or using new tech that might not work out or might cause unexpected delays ( dx 11 )
