Agreed.

I'm not sure how many people are aware of him, but I'd recommend watching the Crysis 1/Warhead/2 ironman series that NanosuiNinja made, he's amazing at these games (I swear sometimes he's a human aimbot). He's just posted a video on his channel talking about how some german game development company with a game coming out in around a month wants him to go and do PR work for them on their new game, so no videos from him for a while though.

Edit: His Anno 2070 series is pretty good too, it's what got me to buy the game.

I think I'm more interested in the actual ending to this story than the game itself :p

I'm glad Psycho's back, not too sure about the whole "Hack Pingers and take them over" and "Hook into the giant glowing blue Ceph thingy"

I'm really not impressed by those cinematic-style trailers. However, the gameplay videos they put out a while back look awesome. I always prefer gameplay videos, as you can usually tell from them whether you're going to like a game.

I never got to finish Crysis 2 cause of crashing issues and I to this day have no idea - a GTX 570 super clocked card, Quad Processor, 8 gigs of ram, SSD, 1000watt PC Power cooling PSU...etc etc no clue but I hope to give this a go I just don't like the idea of giving EA more money cause of what they did to Battlefield and the crap they call 3.

You have six days.

The wide-open MP beta kicks off January 29th. (Yes, it's PS3/XB360, and PC - all at the same time on the same day).

That last indeed showed up in the Nanosuit trailer - and there was, in fact, a hint of this in Crysis 2; a great BIG hint. (A Central Park-sized hint.)

It all STILL comes down to the suit.

If the Crysis (pre-Warhead) Nanosuit was 1.0, and Psycho's suit (Warhead) was more 1.5, then this suit is more like 2.5 - the Prophet/Alcatraz Nanosuit has updated itself. (Yes. Again.)

To get an idea of the progression, if you haven't read it yet, get yourself a copy of the ONLY Official Crysis 2 novel - "Legion". (It's still available in paper and e-book formats.)

There is STILL a crapton to learn about the suit - "Legion", which goes into more detail about the suit than even Crysis 2 does, began scratching the surface. While Crysis 3 goes even deeper, there were plenty of hints from some of the things Alcatraz did in Crysis 2 alone. And going by the trailer, there are likely still more.

Six days - and counting, people.

Okay - it's now available in North America. In Origin, go to Store->Demos, and select Crysis 3 Beta. Download speed is connection-dependent, of course.

Almost done downloading. Can't wait to see my PC start bleeding from the grills (if the alpha was any indication)....

Got on Origin to start the download, it asked me to verify my email + set a secret question, so I thought it'd be a good time to beef up my security settings, which I did through the online interface.

The main app was busy downloading the update at a blistering 50KBps, and then decided it wasn't going to and refused to download anything past the 33MB mark. It was then I noticed that the app was set to the wrong language so I changed the setting and restarted it.

And then it pulled a GfWL and now claims my password is invalid because it's too strong, so no Crysis 3 MP Beta for me until I weaken my password :sleep:

Sigh, still 50 minutes to go.

Wish I had my old 50Mb cable internet, stuck on 7Mb ADSL.

Hope this runs better than the alpha did, was like watching a slideshow.

That was cute; I had no problems here (except a minor one having to do with the default settings) - it made the opposite error of the SimCity 2013 beta; it set the graphical settings too *high* - not too low. 1920x1080 on an AMD HD5450 GPu? I don't think so. However, the same settings I use for Crysis 2 (1280x720 and Medium or High detail, depending on what I have in the background) should be a nice place to begin.

The install itself was cake (apparently, Origin is doing better installs).

I DO have a GPU upgrade planned, so this beta will basically be finding how low the FLOOR goes.

I'm using the same settings I do for C2 graphically except the AA/AF (in C2, I have both turned off - for C3, I have 4xAA/16xAF). Despite that I'm spending a lot of time getting sniped (Crash Site - straight MP, not Hunter Mode), I'm having fun, and i'm normally not a fan of MP.
