Running Crysis, maxed out, at 2048x1536 (or something like that, I think I got the numbers right)

72 FPS.  God, this is how games are meant to be played.

I hate you.

I've got the 3 day trial downloaded now, but I'm holding off on activating an account until later part of the weekend when I'll actually have some time to play.
The depiction of these sieges/battles with the Bane sound really good.
Just for clarity, are these battles PvE or PvP?

PVE.  I haven't seen any PvP stuff yet.

The game has a pretty revolutionary commander/teamplay aspect.

ok, that brings a flashback of one game I tried where the teenage commander (I'm guessing from the sound of his voice) had a meltdown because people weren't doing exactly as he told them to do.  I think I'll be passing after remembering that.

I got a bunch of playtime in yesterday, including some tense defense moments at the Hydro Plant and Purgas Hospital since there weren't alot of people on.  Purgas we barely took back and lost it almost immediately.  The Hydro Plant we lost but I got stuck inside and waged a guerilla war on the Bane until they all went to another side of the base to defend, which left the CP open and I snuck in and grabbed it.  At a later point all three gates fell and were were flooded with Bane.  Standing on the CP I just pulled out my Chaingun and started pumping round after round into the waves of oncoming enemies- at the end of the day the base held and all was well.

(but a free respec is coming along any day now I hear).

I thougt the respec was going to be for Strength, Body and Mind only because of the changes they made to the way they work.  If it's abilities that'll be cool, but I can't really see me changing anything other than losing the 3rd level of lightning and the second level of Motor Assist.  I need to take some screenshots of my new armor set (and to show how unnoticable my new chat window colors are).

I'm loving the chainguns too, but that 2nd tier of ammo is expensive.  Before, even with buying a ton of the first tier ammo, I always had money coming in, but with the improved stuff it feels like I'm barely breaking even.

Quote from: Ridah on December 26, 2007, 02:04:50 AM

I thoroughly enjoyed Half-Life 2 and Episode 1 when they first came out on PC,  I played through them twice each and had a blast. However, the game has not aged well for me over the years and by the time Episode 2 was released I was sick of the series in its current form. Ep 2 just feels like more of the same and it baffles me why it took so long for it to come out after Episode 1.

playtesting to make sure the Gnome achievement was possible took forever.

we need Bruce Campbell to do that properly.

Quote from: EngineNo9 on December 25, 2007, 10:42:00 PM

I think without a doubt Crysis is the most demanding game out there right now, but just be aware that it is meant to scale above current hardware so you may not even be able to max everything (although with that setup I'm sure you can try!).  I'm sure COD4 would look stunning, too. 

+1 to Crysis.

Is X3 worth getting for $10?

From the little I have played of it, with all the patches and free content, if you like open ended space sim games with some management thrown in-then yes I really think it is. It is on my short list of games I didn't get far enough into that I really, really want to play in the near future. Its just a tremendously intimidating, almost daunting game to actually get started in due to its complexity.

Vampire I am also considering-I played about half of it but never finished before, and its only 10$

I picked up Vampire during their Halloween sale, and let me tell you it hasn't held up well.  It's hard to believe they used the source engine for the game- it's just so barren when compared to the Half Life 2 games.
