    Yeah, Crysis 2 DX9 heats up my GPU very quickly, and usage is maxed nearly all the time.

    DX11 would no doubt end up with me capping the game at 30fps, which i will still end up doing anyway, but nice to see it running well first, as i know i would never of choose DX9 if i had the choice of something else.

    If i pirated every game i had an issue with, i would pirate most games, Crysis 2, Witcher2, Shogun 2, BF3, DA2 and many more would be struck off my buy list, if a game is good enough to want to pirate, then its good enough to buy, end of.

    Reading this and many other threads, it amazes me how gullible people can be.
    Someone on the net says DX11 tomorrow, and loads believe it, then someone else says DX11 will never happen as per Crytek/EA, when neither of them denied it, just that they had never confirmed it, and then lots more believe that.

    If its not an official announcement, then why bother paying any attention to it, when most of us know that most sites will say any old crap just to generate traffic.

    I just love it the way it already is..

    no, sorry,

    je kiffe sévère !!!! oups, my french came back désolé.

    just miss that quick save we had in C1 and in C2's beta:3eyes::3eyes::3eyes:

    nevermind, i'll start it again, on the hardest mode 'cuz on soldier i can rip aliens their throat a bit too easy, even finished a Destructor by hands ...:nerd:

    when you want pleasure you find it! when willing to see the negatives, there's plenty of it ...
    so as it's up to one to make a choice, what remains is one is positive or not. pleasure at rendez-vous, or .. else

    If it's so bad, why pirate it?

    Because the only ones who are saying its bad as those who pirated it, or are going to pirate it.

    Most people are saying its a far better game than the first one, and those with low/mid range PC's are loving how it looks and performs, and there are ALOT more of them than high end gamers.

    Because it's not bad. It's awesome. But, because a few textures aren't ultra high res... and it doesn't use DX11, some people assume it's bad.

    Because we all... texture resolution and DX11 make games awesome. :bang:

    We could all still be playing on 80's tech but we're not.

    That's a hell of a leap. And I'd give it to you, if Crysis 2 looked bad. But it doesn't. The game looks fantastic.
    Hell, people going to complain and throw a fit when RAGE comes out? Because it doesn't use DX11 either. DX9 only.

    the mp is leaps and bounds ahead of crysis 1 imo. i think i'm liking the sp better aswell, and also, i think the graphics are actually better then C1 ... *runs for cover*

    But many people wish we still were, maybe not the 80's when it comes to visuals, but DX9 was fantastic on release, and is still capable of superb visuals.

    While W7 helped undo alot of the mess that Vista did, and DX11 started alot brighter than DX10 did, DX11 is still quite unpopular with the masses, partly due to no game really showing what it can do, but mostly due to the performance hit it causes, helped in no part by AMD/Nvidia.

    While the tech heads such as myself love new tech, and like to see things pushed, many see it as a scam to sell new operating systems, and/or expensive video cards.

    Stop with the goddamn console port, it's getting old and it's rather obvious that it's not a simple "port".

    I'm fed up with people not understanding what a port is. This game may have made compromises for the consoles, but it hasn't been ported from them.

    google translator doesn't help me getting what a 'port' is.

    could someone be kind enough to define it precisely for me ?? sorry, i am learning this very specific grafic/gaming vocabulary.

    Thx

    Ignore him, hes just some young kid who has been trolling Crysis 2 threads for weeks now.

    If he was serious, then why would he keep wasting time posting about something he hated?

    With stuff i hate i forget about it, and move onto something else, wasting your own time thinking and commenting about it is sad and pathetic.
