    To those of you who cannot run the original Crysis, the console version comes out on PSN and XBL today, and I strongly suggest you check it out. If you enjoyed Crysis 2 at all, the original will feel like a sequel to that game from a gameplay standpoint.

    No really.

    Guys. I would like you to buy Crysis when the console version comes out on October 4th if your PC wasn’t hard enough to run it back in 2007. I really do believe it to be THE underrated single player shooter of this generation. If you’ve played Crysis 2, this game will feel like a sequel from a gameplay standpoint.

    Oh, and @beige Demon’s Souls server extension into 2012 has convinced me to just stick with that game until I beat it or hit an absolutely insurmountable brick wall.

    @bowlisimo I was gonna ask you why you were playing that.

    But yeah, at that last third of Crysis you can tell the level designers just ran out of gas. Crysis Warhead makes up for that. Even when Warhead get’s linear it still gives you a lot of tactical elbow room.

    @redswirl Until Crysis turns into a scripted roller coaster alien shooter in the back end, but yeah, up to that point, mostly open and awesome.

    Also, since I haven’t really bought anything this year, I dug into the Steam backlog and pulled out Deus Ex: Invisible War…and then deleted it 2 hours later. The only thing I liked about it was that the Snake Plissken ending from the original Deus Ex is canon, otherwise that is an uninteresting and soulless game.

    I actually got a bit spoiled with the original Crysis, I was fortunate to be running a brand new rig with an 8800 GTX in it and was able to run the game on high settings (avg’d around 40fps until the iceland dragged it down to 20fps) and my god it was gorgeous.

    Fun too, still I have no desire to play it again or warhead for that matter. Let alone Crysis 2, which would make my system weep for mercy. Still rocking that same system with a few tweaks, the 8800 died and I RMA’d it for a GTX280, Core 2 Duo 2.66ghz and 6gb ram (2 at the time).

    I have only played the demo for the original crysis. This was back before I upgraded my video card, and I was surprised that it could actually run perfectly fine on low settings. Occasionally I would dial up the settings to see a pretty slide show, and watch what was then one of the first games I played to feature destructible environments. I should probably go back and try that game now that my videocard is 20 times better.

    Started Dragon Age II. Most of the changes don’t bother me, I like a ton of them.
    However… I find myself less engaged in the story for some reason. There are some really excellent characters … I just am not feeling my primary conflict. What am I doing? Why am I doing that?
    I couldn’t tell you.
