IS SICKLY AMAZING. I got the multiplayer demo and have been playing it for the past hour. SO MUCH FUN. Though I doubt it'll be good for benchmarking, since I get about 55 fps with maxed out settings WHILE recording with fraps..whereas with the original I would only get around 40, idk what's going on :p. I recorded a match and I'm currently compressing it for upload to youtube :D

Wait... a PC demo? WHERE? I was hoping to see it available on Steam, but no cigar.

I am certain Crysis 2 will be a game we'll be benchmarking, but not multiplayer... that's too sporadic.

This is download number 1 tonight, as soon as I deal with some cable management.

I have the video compressed and ready for upload, but I'm going to try to get somewhere with better internet to upload it. either tonight at my friend's house or from class tomorrow on a lab computer. 50 megabit internet at school :p

My GPUs ought to own the hell out of it too bad I am busy with [email protected]@!!!! Seriously bulletstorm is EFFING awesome. Its decently hard on normal but not too hard but best of all its just fun and has a great story, long story short I have spent several hours playing it last night and today. AFAIK, accordidn to Nvidia a 580 will pull ~35 FPS all maxed at 2560x1600 and a 260 will do ~17 but a 275 ought to do a bit better than a 260 and in SLI they are probably very similar to a 580, at less cost.

yup. Those settings were on my monitor at home, and I'm at my friend's house with my gaming rig hooked up to his 36" Sony TV @ 1080p and runs it at same fps! :D

Playing Crysis 2!
When Prophet did what he did, it was a 'frakk u' to PC gamers! No Nomad, No Psycho, no free roam, no open world thingy, same linear path point and shoot gameplay like COD, nothing of what made Crysis 1 awesome!(for me atleast!) :D

Crysis 2 is Black Oops with a Nanosuit! and it sux! :(

Ugh, that's not what I wanted to hear! I gave the game a quick 20 minute go the other night, and I have to admit that despite the lack of DX9, the game is still quite gorgeous. It might just be... alright, it is the best-looking DX9 game ever designed.

I am hoping to dedicate good time to playing it this week, so I'll see if my opinions align with yours. I am not nearly as fussy as most others usually, so when I complain about something, there's probably good reason for it :D

I'm with Rob. It sure looked pretty, even without the latest and greatest eye candy. It makes me wonder what DX11 is truly capable of if a DX9 title can look this good?

It does look great but, the things i mentioned really are a downer for me!

Me gonna run through the original Crysis to get this bad taste out of my mouth.
