im gonna go out and say that after reading most of the posts in this thread, some of you cant even call yourselves gamers. well you dont deserve to i mean.
i mean, are you actually buying everything you're selling? "oh its not DX10/11 IM NOT BUYING IT" ... "oh the graphics arnt what i expected, BOYCOTT!" and all the other crap everyone is spitting out.
i hope none of you buy it and miss out, coz it seems like a sick game, i've been playing the BETA and cant wait for full release, and if the graphics looks like the BETA, we'll be smiling all the way through the game.
i am also finding it absolutely hilarious how everyone is trying to compare this to the first Crysis. listen to yourselves. when Crysis 1 came out, for like the first TWO YEARS everyone complained about how the graphics were great but the game 'wasnt optimised' and 'didnt really look THAT great' and bla bla bla, there was a huge hate bandwagon for Crysis.
AND, how many times, when a new game comes out with DX10/11, do you all sit there and go "aw, DX10/11 doesnt even look better or run better anyway, DX9 runs better im gonna install it on my XP machine..." and you whinge about how DX10 or DX11 isnt being used properly.
ooh wait, here comes the "but this is 2011 and DX10/11 should be here by now, (enter game name) uses it, Crytek said they would, whinge whinge whinge".
sure Crytek seemingly lied to us (whats new) or they tooted their own horn too loud and couldnt get it to work how they wanted. you know what devs do, they go with what works. thats kinda their job, and as much as i love how everyone here seems to know more than the devs (hat off to Google search and Wikipedia) what seemed to work for them in order to give everyone the best experience, was a DX9 platform. which is still not 100% confirmed as the only DX engine for this game, i dont see how they could just "patch" it in anyway without it looking tacked on, plus that wouldnt please you all either.
so Crytek said they are looking after the PC community on this one. well our version will look a LOT better thanks to the hardware, from the BETA and the demoes it seems very optimised for all platforms, so it seems everyone gets to enjoy the experience that is Crysis 2. if you cant handle that, heres a bag of cement and a glass of water.
why cant you all sit there an go "hmm ok, well DX10/11 was a joke for this title, it appears as though it may not be coming. but wait a sec, lets consider that what they've achieved with the game so far is only DX9..."
isnt that a huge round of applause for the DX9 achievment? to be able to make DX9 look and run like they have? of course i would love a few more extra visuals, im a BIG fan of the new tesselation, but still. for DX9 Crysis 2 is mindblowing, its mindblowing anyway.
the majority of you, are simply a bunch of spoon-fed sheep. im willing to bet the majority of haters are going to get this game, probably pirated coz thats what whingers and spoilt brats do when they dont get what they want, they just take it anyway, and "stick it to the man yeah!" and you'll love it coz its a fun game to play, really fun. and it looks amazing. and now our console counterparts get to experience the same thing. thats what gaming is about, the experience, and sharing that experience.
far out you're all full of it, seriously.
this isnt the golden age of PC gaming anymore, those days are long gone, deal with it. everyone cries that the devs need to evolve with the rest of the industry, use the latest DirectX, etc etc... well they are evolving, its just not in the way everyone wants, and no one seems to be able to handle that.
and dont rip on the COD series when you're comparing a game to it, dont pretend like you dont lilke COD, everyone who likes FPS games likes and plays COD. nuff said.Edited by gtarmanrob - 3/19/11 at 8:29pm
