How big a rig do I need to run it, do I have to choose between a rig or a car, & will I be able to play games in the sauna in the winter?

I wouldn't be too surprised if the next game from Crytek turns out to be more useful as a pseudo-benchmark/standard rather than a game in which all future systems are judged against. Which is good, as pushing the boundaries helps innovation. But on the other hand, I'm sick to death of still hearing "But does it play crysis?" all over the interwebs, so here's to hoping for an actually decent storyline.

I hope they quit. Crysis 2 was a FAIL and the patch for DX11, months after the release of the game, was an EPIC FAIL.

My sources tell me they are trying to secure licensing rights to a certain big name you already know. I guess I will just come out and ruin the surprise so spoil alert. It's My Little Pony. They are making the game which currently has the plan to be named My Little Pony's Maximum Carnage. As you see young girls are the least likely to play a FPS and are a completely untapped consumer in the market. This will help introduce
young girls to the genre.

It was actually a fun game, and it had great graphics compared to most others. Now with the DX11 patch it actually looks better than even the original crysis. And it was not a fail at all considering its 3 million units sold so far.

They need to hook up with retired military and get some help with the AI. In Crysis 2, the enemy troops walk in single file, clustered, and all the enemies are just plain dumb as hell. If they give you a rifle with a scope, then the weapon fire should alert the enemy, especially if you just shot him...lol... unfortunately, if you are too far away, you can take shot after shot while the enemy AI just stands there and takes it. If you include long range weapons like a sniper rifle, then by all means program the damned AI to react to it... otherwise, leave them out... but you know you can't do that.

Barbie can actually give you an adrenaline kick, you just need to find the right surroundings. Like when people kick in your door & try to kill you, just keep playing! You'll notice that your pulse is off the chart while you play Barbie under these conditions...

ya they work (companies games) all on console and translate to PC.
So games suck a lot on PC.

It's ridiculous to play with just 16 player in 2011, when it's possible to play minimum with 64 players and probably with 128 players on good machine (2011 machine).

Console console console.
Just that.

I HATE console. Just good for my kids.

I hope a day some new companies games will think to guy who have good PC and make game for them and not for (#&$ console !

n3ard3athThey should make story-based adventure games were you play the roll of a slut that have to choose from 20 different guys to marry, but got to fuck with each and every one of them before deciding. Or play the roll of a materialistic bitch among 20 who fight for the "love" of a guy by doing nasty things to him and saying bullshit.That would turn all the little girls into perfect brainless sluts. Oh wait, we already got that with reality shows...nevermind...


They already have flash games like that.

By your logic COD MW1/2/blackops was a GREAT game because it sold so many units.... Reality is that it sucked compared to even budget titles.

If i were a dev i would also mention the PC last even thoo its by far the best platform to deliver a game experience especially on a high-end machine.

1. Due to different hardware it requires resources/skill to enable your title to play on most specs and at the same time take advantage of the more advanced hardware like dx11/3d.
2. The vocal part of the PC community is constant bishing, no matter how well the title is done there will always be bitching. Why bother to work hard when it will still be rewarded like garbage? I'm amazed CryTek took the time to do the Dx11 / Highres tex packs. From what iwe seen on most forums their "fails". Ungreatful Bastards!

*snort* graphics, graphics, DX11, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda...and its still the same old FPS shooter gameplay mechanics that have been done and done and done over and over and over again. I tell you, PC gaming is dead.

Between Angry Bird mobile phone ports, and this console-shlocky (Only with prettier graphics so the whiners with specced-out rigs can have something to brag about or justify their purchases) and stupendously simple and brain-jarringly boring or pointless indie 'hits' like Minecraft (oh gee, its Legoland!, only for adults!) and the prevalence of all the free-to-play nickel and diming strategies (to lock in customers and keep them playing and paying thinner and less impactful content doled out over a longer period of time with the other 'needy' and 'safety-blanket'-generation, social-yaks?) and cheap downloadable games (So long as you can afford that non-quota'd broadband connection and you enjoy frappy mobile phone fare!) and ....well, let me shut up here. I'm sure I've lost about 75% of anyone who'd bother reading anyway.

*But the rant continues! :) *

Sure, Deus Ex 3 looks like a decent *PC* game, Portal 2 was sorta good (though it doesn't go far enough or last long enough) and Skyrim can probably be fixed via the built-in modding tools (I'm sure it'll need it with the dumbed-down stats system), but I have no illusions that things will get better or that I haven't seen the best of what PC gaming has to offer to/for me.

Its not really that I look forward to new games anymore as it is, and maybe I shouldn't. I've got a backlog of games (PC *and* console) that stretches back into the 90's! I guess this is the next generation of PC gaming, where computer magazines (PC Magazine. there, I said it.) and computer and computer-tech-oriented sites cover smart phones, e-book readers and pseudo-interface devices (tablets) more than they do computer and laptop technology. Where pleasing technology is more about fashion, flash and flair than flexibility, function and features. And PC Gamer magazine is all for anything (MMORPGs, free-to-play, indie, tablet gaming, smartphone gaming, consoles, sub-par PC titles that sell very well) that keeps it from joining the likes of CGW/GfW.

Okay, sure maybe I *am* an old fogey wishing things were what they weren't, but I'd still love to see a Dungeon Keeper 3, a Magic Carpet 3 or a decently done Mechwarrior 5 with the latest eye-candy, but similar and solid play-content (before/if/when) the PC/console gaming market crashes from saturation. I know, I know..the sad thing is that they probably wouldn't sell very well. They'd have to be very simple and very brightly colored and look just like a smart phone app before anyone would bother *cry* *cry*. And where the hell is Half-life 3?! (I'm sure Valve is trying to find a way to tie it more tightly to Steam so that you have to pay for various in-game content 'upgrades'. Maybe instead of having Alex you can purchase various other 'companions' to try and save or maybe you can pay to call in airstrikes on a group of enemies...oh crap...I shouldn't put ideas into their heads, God knows they'd do it too.) I suppose they don't care really. They're making so much money off of Steam they don't really need to put in the effort and actually make good games which the gamers actually want. And they know that Half-life 2 was border-line anyways. More is expected from HL3 and they're probably not up to it.

Even with the changes I still prefer PC gaming. Not *because* of the changes of course, because even *with* the changes I can still play old games which played the way I enjoyed playing them and easily find other people who also still enjoy playing those games and even others who've made those games easier and better to play than they were. Not with the much-touted 'DLCs' and 'mods', but just with patches, fixes, FAQs, info and recommendations on running the game on whatever Os. You don't need a specific make of hardware to run a PC game either (Though it makes it easier sometimes). Oh yeah...and being able to play smile-inducing 'arcade' favorites and original 16-bit 'console' classics from gaming eras gone are pluses (Thank God! for growing up in the 80's and 90's when so many extinct, but original and great gaming platforms were alive and thriving!! Gamers today not in the know can never be in the know of what they've missed all because their expectations are so different.)

Anyways. Even when its dying. Even when it dies. PC gaming forever.

I agree with most of what your saying, i hate tables i am only 19 and i miss the old days of gaming and such so im with you 100% on that i love graphics but my favorite games have always been the ones with long storys+1 to you even if you get thumb down!

But pc gaming will not die in fact i'm willing to beat console gamers will fade away first. tablets might kill them off, but cetain people will always game on their PC's, console fans just dont seem the same as PC fans, what i mean is most console fans are teen's with some 30 and 40 year-olds mix in, which we all no they only buy whats cool. the next thing for them is the ipad or other tablets. But not me never i love making pc's

The Pc sales might look weak at a first glance but they aren't, its due to retail statistics that don't include steam sales and thats the by far biggest distribution chain for PC games. Its speculated by experts that Steam have around 70% of the Pc game sales but as long as valve remains silent about it we wont know for sure. I hope Valve lightens up and stop hurting the PC's appeal by keeping the numbers secret, their only shooting themselves in the foot in the end when everyone think the platform is dead due to the dinosaurized retailers small shelves ect while its infact growing on a yearly basis.

The platform have evolved, so has its users. Instead of purchasing stone age media more and more prefere to have the titles downloaded instead.

Its not dying, in fact its gaining steadily from year to year. The reason it may look week to the unknowing eye is that Valve's Steam that according to several experts have 65-75 of the total Pc game sales don't disclose the numbers. The retailers who make much of the sale statistics don't want more PC customers as its a loosing battle to them. They cant fight the evolution away from physical media to downloads - Its the way the PC is heading!
