The difference between you and me is just that I care about technological advancement and when a game like crysis 1 comes out I rejoice. And when the sequel comes out with a technological step backwards I feel deeply disappointed. i'm sad because crytek didn't take that leap in graphics as they did before. I care about the gaming industry and IMO running in circles, using the same API, the same old multiplayer ideas etc. is not doing gaming any good.

I'm sure that just purely going by SP gameplay Crysis 2 would probably be a great game. It's still not a worthy sequel to crysis 1. You said it yourself a few pages back. Normal consumer takes everything that's handed to them, I think I'm going to use my own judgement this time: Crysis 2 is not the game I want it to be. And no I probably won't change my mind a few hours later when it releases.
Would EVERYONE like a perfect game with 40 hrs of originality, bleeding edge graphics and smooth and polished gameplay? Yes, yes we would.

A tech nerd cares more about what Dx version they're using or the graphics than the game itself. A benchmarker cares about how taxing it is on their system and how many FPS he can get on his $800 GPU setup.

A gamer is the one waiting to see what the game PLAYS like and doesn't care about it if it has realistic pebbles on the ground or the shingles on a composite roof look real, or if the graphics are barely playable with 3-way SLI/Xfire, he cares first and foremost about the gameplay. To me, those who have been raging a WEEK before the game has even come out have e-peen issues to resolve.

Cry-Adam Responds to Port and DX11 concerns:
http://www.crymod.com/thread.php?pos...962#post782962

Quote:
Ok, this is coming back to my long winded post:

Developer console - Most console ports won't give you this level of access to the engine because they're not accessible in the console version anyway. Crysis 2 has a developer console.

Dedicated servers - Most console ports use peer-to-peer networks to perform online play. Crysis 2 features dedicated servers.

PC-specific graphic features - Features such as DX11 aren't generally featured in console ports because the consoles don't support them. Crysis 2 will feature DX11.


Some misconceptions:

Aim-assist - Gamepad support is something that is not new to the Crysis franchise. Consoles have absolutely nothing to do with Crysis 2 supporting gamepads on PC. Aim-assist is a natural addition to gamepad support. In efforts to please PC gamers, aim-assist is being removed for MP.

Controls - The Nanosuit2 was redesigned based on the ways people were using the NS1. People were combining tactics under two main methods; armour and stealth. Most people played like a bullet-proof hero or a stealthy assassin and within these two main methods emerged a variety of different tactics, especially combining suit powers. I've mentioned this dozens of times but some people don't seem to be able to look past the fact that there's no longer 4 main suit modes and see that they're now incorporated into the suit and can be activated in conjunction with other suit functions. Can you speed-mode sprint whilst being in cloak and do a strength jump all in one fluid motion with the NS1? No. I just don't understand how people can interpret a 4-way segregated suit as opposed to an all-in-one and just as powerful suit as more advanced.

Just a few things that come to mind
Crysis 2 has to be a port, it had a press start button?

Quote:
A static welcome screen does not dictate whether a particular version is a port of another. Most assets are pooled during development and then adjusted if needed to suit. This would be one of those assets that was really a non-issue that was overlooked. A single word on a static image welcome screen is not going to make or break your gaming experience. I sincerely hope you can judge the game beyond the literal cover.

As we've stated, the PC demo did not feature the full list of PC specific elements that can be found in the full version. These are adjustments that are made to suit the PC version to make that version the best it can be on PC. The welcome screen can be included in that list but it will be patched in as it didn't make it in prior to.
I don't know what else to say. Official word from admins, producers etc.
Some people are just caught in the paradox of Console Port. Everything will be available.

If they can improve the PS3 version close to launch I'm sure the PC version just needs to flip the switch, in the form of a patch, unfortunately, but it's coming.

Not the case. The minimum and recommended specs never listed DX10.
DX11 covers both DX10 and DX11. Crysis on Very High in DX9 is the same in DX10 really.
Extreme tessellation will make a difference (Nvidia), hopefully not the barely noticeable DX11 you have seen with Metro.

No way.. I'm finding that very hard to believe! You can't blame me though DX9, right?
