Wii U Can Handle Crysis 3 (And Almost Did), Says Crytek Head

Despite what Nintendo would likely call its own best efforts, the Wii U has struggled to attract third-party game makers. Some developers might tell you that’s because the Wii U is underpowered, but Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told a different story to VentureBeat this week.


Have You Heard About The Graphics In Crysis 3?

Whoo boy, those Crysis 3 graphics. I knew they were good, but I had no idea you could get so enthusiastic about it. I guess I underestimated the passion of bros.


Crytek Head: So Far, Crysis 3 Is Our Masterpiece

Crytek head Cevat Yerli has come out in defence of his studio’s latest game, Crysis 3. In an interview with Gamasutra, Yerli says that the game is “so far, our masterpiece”, and that he feels it’s better than both Crysis 2 and the original Crysis in all aspects.


Crysis 3 Performance Test: Graphics Cards And CPUs

Built with CryEngine2, the original Crysis raised the bar for PC gaming graphics in 2007 with stunningly detailed visuals that crippled even the fastest of rigs. Looking back at our first Crysis performance article, which was based on the game’s demo, the fastest GPU available at the time (the GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB) struggled to average 30fps when running at 1920×1200 with high quality settings on DirectX 10.


Straight From The Future, It's Crysis Running On A VR Headset

Well, actually not the future. The present. See, when first they announced the Oculus Rift VR headset, I thought, “Oh, virtual reality. I liked The Lawnmower Man. This should be weird.”

“Nanotechnology offers unprecedented possibilities for progress — defeating poverty, starvation, and disease, opening up outer space, and expanding human capacities. But it also brings unprecedented risks — the specter of devastating wars fought with far more powerful weapons of mass destruction.” – Chris Phoenix, Director of Research,Center for Responsible Nanotechnology.


Ah, So That's Why Crysis 3's First Level Is So Terribly Slow

If you’ve played Crysis 3 on the PC, you’ve probably noticed that the first level, even on a powerful system, chugs. Badly. It gets you off on the wrong foot with the game, because you start worrying more about hardware than the experience, and that sucks.


A Dance Party Is Just A Button Away In Crysis 3

Remember the dancing CELL soldiers from Crysis 2? No? Well, either way, the easter egg is back in Crysis 3 — all you have to do is press a certain button while in a certain menu. Check out this video by Game Front to see what I mean.


Crysis 3 Has A Bow With Explosive Arrows -- So Does This Guy

The bow and arrow in Crysis 3 might throw off the game’s balance, but it’s still a pretty cool piece of gear. And it seems every time there’s a bow and arrow in a video game, it winds up having explosives attached to it.


Reviewers Think Crysis 3 Is Really, Really Pretty (Surprise!)

Much to the surprise of pretty much no one, Crysis 3 turned out to be quite the looker. But that’s just what Crysis does! So what else is there to like? For some, the exciting cat-and-mouse stealth gameplay. For others, the brand new weapons you get to hunt with.
