• Video: Porting Stalker To The Crysis Engine

    One of the better deals during Steam’s holiday sale was the Stalker series for something like $5—pretty much an insane deal. The games are the definition of the PC shooter (as opposed to console shooter like Killzone or Halo): freedom of movement, no silly scripted sequences, mods all day long, etc. Well now it looks like a group of modders, from Russia, have taken it upon… Read More

  • Crysis Continues To Look Awesome In New Trailer (Update: Minimum Specs!)

    After watching the Duty Calls parody video from this morning, we were discussing how the open-ended shooters of yore, like Delta Force and the first halves of Far Cry and Crysis, are pretty hard to come by these days. I’m not sure exactly how open Crysis 2 is going to be, but brother, that doesn’t change the fact that it looks awesome. Read More

  • Crysis 2 Delayed Until 2011

    Bad news for Crysis 2 fans, EA had their financial announcement today, and confirmed that Crisys 2 will be delayed unti 4Q2011. It was originally scheduled to come out this winter. EA didn’t let out any official reason for the delay, but it could be related to the recent addition of 3D graphics. I say let ’em hold off and get it right the first time.

  • Crysis of conscious: Crytek doesn't rule out developing PS3-exclusive game in the future

    Does the mere idea of a console exclusive game from Crytek make your blood boil? Yeah, me neither, but it’s sorta weird seeing the once PC-only developer embrace consoles so forcefully. The big one, obviously, is Crysis 2, being developed for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. But then word hit at E3 that Crytek would be developing a 360-only game, Codename: Kingdoms. Hearts, they are broken! And… Read More

  • Crytek 'working closely' with Microsoft, Sony re: motion controls

    Pretty sure Crytek, of Crysis fame, is usually associated with blazing fast graphics cards and extreme edition processors, so color me surprised to see it embracing Microsoft’s Project Natal and Sony’s Move. Surprised and disappointed, to be exact—I shan’t be participating in this motion control business, that’s for sure. Read More

  • 'Yeah, but does it run Crysis 2?'

    The World’s video game press gathered in New York on Tuesday for the world premiere of Crysis 2, the sequel to the game whose memory lives in on the question, “Yeah, but does it run Crysis?” It’s no coincidence that Crtyek, the game’s developers, and EA, the game’s publisher, chose New York to show off the game, with Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli calling the… Read More

  • Crysis & Crysis Warhead $15 each this weekend on Steam

    Steam has yet another great weekend sale going on right now. Both Crysis and Crysis Warhead are $15 each this weekend and let me just say, they are totally worth it. Read More

  • The Crysis engine does a pretty good job of rendering Blade Runner

    This is a scene from the movie Blade Runner rendered using CryENGINE 2, the game engine that powers Crysis. Read More

  • Crysis Warhead PC lets you play Crysis cheap

    If this custom gaming rig from Tiger Direct and EA doesn’t play Crysis, someone better lose their job. The game has been out for almost a year now and the specs listed seem to indicated a good enough system, (2GB of ram…for vista?) so I can only hope that the game will run well on the tuned system. Truth be told, most modern rigs can play the game alright, just not on the… Read More

  • Electronic Arts to build Crysis-ready gaming PCs?

    Gotta admit that I didn’t see this one coming. Apparently in anticipation of Crysis Warhead, Electronic Arts will be getting into the hardware business with some gaming PCs made to “correspond to Crysis Warhead’s levels of graphical detail, with a likely price range being $600-$800,” according to Remowned. The rumor was overheard at EA’s Comic-Con booth. A rep… Read More

  • Crytek dropping PC exclusivity thanks to piracy

    In an interview with PC Play Magazine, when asked about the current state of PC gaming, Crytek president Cevat Terli said: “We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin, a chart leading that is not desirable. I believe that’s the core problem of PC Gaming, piracy.  To the degree PC Gamers… Read More

  • Crysis shown on the Xbox360 at GDC

    Crytek has been pretty mum about the console plan for its GPU-taxing hit, Crysis. They said they’d be showing it on consoles at GDC, but it was nowhere to be found unless you did the legwork yourself. This intrepid gamer/reporter found that they were in fact showing it on the 360 behind closed doors, but only to publishers. Of course, the 360 was the obvious choice, what with the… Read More
