Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
It's out for PC today.  Anybody else excited?
Not with a retail price tag of $60.

Cheaper than FreeSpace 2 was at release, don't see what the problem is :colbert:

Freespace 2 was $40 on release.

Oh I assumed it was $50, but in the case of $40 it's only $7 more than FS2 was on release.

Are you factoring inflation or am I missing something?

the former good sir

People ***** about $60 games but honestly games should be way more expensive. Also people forget that back in the 90s games routinely hit like $80 or $100.

PC gamers have turned into entitled sheep!

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
So me and Battuta are going to be TOTAL PROs and play the demo soon, and we were wondering if anyone other /hlp/eons would like to join, if you do, add me (HLPHades, Sfyri in-game, there's a friending system yo) or Battuta (General Battuta on steam, he hasn't finished downloading yet) and we can get a HLP match going.

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

I'm FoeHammer99099 ingame, but I'm taking a breather because of semi-random CTD's.   :doubt:

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
I think my computer would take one look at the system specs and laugh.  I'm not even convinced I could ever run the original Crysis on this box if I wanted to. :p

Google 'can my system run it' and put in Crysis 2, Mongoose.

Ooh, that's a nifty little tool, though I had to switch over to IE to get it to work right.  As it turns out, my processor fails the test. :p Apparently I could handle the original, though.

It takes very little to run Crysis on low everything. Except, then it looks about as good a Far Cry 1.

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
This is either the ****tiest, laggiest, most randomly-frame-droppingest batch of POS demo code of all time, or I'm really going to regret my preorder came launch day.

Literally every single issue I thought could be blamed on the 360 hardware is still present and - of all ungodly things - the game was actually more fun on 360.

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
Yeah. I didn't get any of this FPS lag from the leak at all, I could easily play on hardcore with the leak, but I'm struggling with gamer on the demo, wtf?

Weren't we generally not supposed to talk about stuff like that on here?

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
I'm still going to buy the game, so I'm not sure how, as I think there's a difference with talking about it and not buying the game and talking about it and buying the game.

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
I'm hoping the leak is a later build of the engine than whatever was forked to make this demo, because holy ****.

EDIT: I do know the demo is DX9 only, maybe it's some kind of horrible reverse port of the 360 demo. Oh my god it is so bad.

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
To render this demo 400% less ****ty, use the following command line options:

 +g_SkipIntro 1 +cl_fov 80  +r_motionblur= 0

 
Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
I've been looking for a config file to disable that motion blur for the past half hour.  :nervous:

Re: Crysis 2 multiplayer demo impressions
Seriously those three options made this demo actually fun and interesting for me. Woot.
