Earlier this year a thread was started detailing minimum system requirements for Crysis 2, confirmed by EA on their blog.



Here's the source

So what's my point?



You can find the now closed thread here its the second reply following the OP.

True to my word on page 2, I am holding him to that.

Please take note of his reply below mine on page 2 of the above thread, featuring 'The Hat' a copy of the picture he provided is below.



So, March 22 is the apparent release date in the US for Crysis 2. I would to like to call anyone forward who meets those system specs, and those only, to post their results, prove they are real and true results, showing playable framerates in Crysis 2.

Now what isn't specified is the graphic setting required, or what is to be determined as 'playable framerates'. So I think it would be fair to say, that minimum specs would mean playing on the minimum setting, which going from the demo was 'Gamer'.

Do we all agree that 'playable framerates' would be the equal of 25-30fps?

PLEASE - this thread is for pure fun only and coz i promised Xenthos i would hold him to it dont bring your Crysis hating here or really any discusion of anything outside of the topic at hand.

I don't want this to get out of hand, remember it's not really about Crysis 2 as much as it is about Xenthos eating that hat

C'mon guys, start pushing those rigs haha.
my laptop runned the demo.
overclocked my ATI Mobility HD3650 running stable
4gb ram ddr2 800mhz and a P8600@ 2.4ghz
it eated the demo which was multiplayer and wasnt minimum resolution so..

RECIPES

Hatatouille (serves 4-6)
Skin and pluck your hat, being careful not to lose any of the succulent juices.
Soak the hat in 2 pints of ostrich milk mixed with the yolks of 17 goats' eggs.
Place the hat in 42ml of water, bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 3 weeks.
While waiting you might like to practise your macarena skills
Serve with your arm straight and your eye on the ball.

Chocolate Hateau (serves 1.6)
Choose a suitable hat (for maximum flavour a top hat is recommended, but a baseball cap will cook faster).
Coat your hat in chocolate.
Take a feather out of a hat and thinly slice it, sprinkling the scraps over the cooked hat.
Eat.

Capcakes (serves .95)
Take 1 knit watch cap and wash in extremely hot water until it shrinks to the size of a tennis ball.
Insert 1 handful of angelfood cake inside the hat.
Insert 2 tablespoons of your favorite jam or jelly.
Bake for 5 minutes in an easybake oven or (on a sunny day) hold under a large magnifing glass until the hand holding the capcake burns slightly.

Egg in the Nest (serves 6-10)
Take 1 straw hat and turn upside down.
Melt 1/2 stick of butter and spread around inside of hat.
Break 1 to 2 dozen large eggs into hat (quantity determined by size of hat).
Mix in 2/7 cup of Duck milk per dozen eggs (for a lower fat version use Oak or Walnut milk).
Bake in 350 Deg. F oven for 25 to 30 min.
Slice into wedges and serve.
To turn this side dish into a meal add veggies and slices of Road kill.

Spahatgettie and Puff Balls (serves 5-6)
Take 1 knit hat with puffballs(pom poms) on it, remove puff balls, unravel hat.
Cut unraveled sections of hat into 6-8" noodles and boil 10 to 12 min.
Saute Puff Balls in skillet with butter and garlic and chives.
Strain noodles, plate the noodles and pour skillet contents onto them.
Season to taste (optional : grate cheese on top).

Hattenburg Cake
Take 4 pints of milk, 6 eggs and 2 bags of flour.
Return to the shop and pay for them, or make sure you have a getaway vehicle ready.
Put the ingredients, along with your hat, in the microwave for 3 hours.
Sod the hat, go and get a burger.
