I didn't know they existed. Then again, I'd choose getting laid over reading comics anyway (it really is a "one or the other" choice with those things)
Who here actually reads the various Crysis backstory comics? Like the one that explains Nomad's death or Prophet being a mole for Hargreave in Crysis 1? (Not that I read them, I just found the info on wiki)

heh heh Larry you do know most PC disc versions are just installers now right? I mean this game is much bigger than what a DVD can nominally carry, so it'll have to unpack/download anyway. As for the game, really excited for it, was hoping they'd release it a day sooner but alas only available for pre-load on Origin, which I'm doing right now.
It was actually 2 full disks. But in what can only be described as true irony, I think I got bum disks!!! My PC will not even register them as disks, and I just burned a DVD for my parents the other day, so know my drive works.
Installing from disk will be much quicker than downloading it each time

Damn, this game looks good, and DAMN, it is demanding for sure. I cannot run any setting past Medium without it really affecting performance negatively. EVGA GeForce 660 Ti Superclocked, and it basically has my card on its knees begging for me to get another card for SLi.
I am only about 15 minutes in if that, spent a lot of time playing with graphics just to find out the above, that I can hardly adjust the graphics, and I just love this series personally.

Seriously, if I did not spend more time on a console these days, I would probably be ordering another graphics card right now, and hell, part of me is still incredibly tempted to do so. This game is beautiful, hell, I will even say gorgeous, and it almost reminds me of the original game by how demanding it actually is.
Something has to be up though, as I have this whole GeForce Experience thing on my PC, it is supposed to recommend the Optimal settings to run the game, and right now it is telling me I do not even meet the minimum system requirements for the game, and that everything should be set to low, and I should be running it at 1024 x 768. It HAS to be wrong. I am running everything at Medium, a few random things turned up higher then they defaulted, and I am getting about 50 FPS on average. It is definitely playable, but I have a feeling the action may dip the frame rates down something fierce, as I am now outdoors.
I get how this series may not be for everybody, but for myself, it is about as good as an FPS can get as far as gameplay. The Bow is Kick Ass.

I'd think you would be able to run high settings fine with that card. I've been able to run it very smoothly on a similar powered card. I have it on all high settings at 1080p (with textures on "very high" and aa on SMAA 2x) on my amd 6950 2gb. I just had to turn vsync off (with it on my fps was extremely sporadic, but with it off its smooth sailing)
The game definitely does look great
I will play with my settings. Only thing I did put to High was post processing, sounded like something that should be high. And I would see as high as mid 70's as well, just seemed like 50 was the average. That is everything on Medium, Post Processing on High, AA and AF pretty cranked up (I do not like jaggies whenever possible), so will see if I can get some High settings working. I think the whole Nvidia GeForce Experience thing is just broke, at least for Crysis 3.
Yeah Larry, that sounds odd. My 7950 is averaging 50fps with almost everything set to very high. Use FXAA, and tone down post processing.
Also didn't get far into it, but gorgeous game, even if the story is quite...off..
