What were you running this thing on, a hamster wheel?

Haha, jk, nice vids. I don't normally watch videos for games I'm not interested in, but I wanted to see how this pc ran the game.

I'm sorry, that stealth camping with the bow is the gayest thing ever lol. How do they expect to keep the game fun if all they're doing is hiding with stealth on? Then again, I have no idea why some people are stealthed and others are not, nor what the objective is. Are they suppose to have the nanosuits with all the powers while you guys are suppose to be the regular joes?

I enjoyed Crysis 2 multiplayer, not as much as COD:BO multiplayer though. I tried the xbox demo for this yesterday, and could barely make 1 kill in the whole match. Did not enjoy.

Thanks Miguel. Can I ask what framerates you are getting? And what AA setting you were using?

Hunter mode is one sided.

Hunters have unlimited cloak, no footstep sounds, faster and have a bow which is one hit kills.
CELL has nothing but a EMP grenade which is stupid, thats it.

Also, cloak pussies are so annoying, as soon as they reveal themselves they go into cloak like idiots idiots, its not fun at all!

Unless the Hunters quickly take them out, all CELL players i seen do is camp in a corner with a shield and let the rimer run out since the AR kills them extremely quick.
The mode could be fun but its horribly one sided and makes it not fun. Hell, dying as CELL to be converted to Hunter is a pleasure.

I played on PC first even on the lowest settings with some High's it looks 10x better than the garbage found on consoles. Its so ugly on ps3 (360 as well by images) that i cant play it that way.
I say Crytek should just wait for next gen and release it on next gen consoles, or re-release it with max settings because its pathetic on consoles. And yes, sub HD is the reason why it looks so fucking ugly, its not even as close as 360's Black Ops 2 resolution, thats how ugly it is.

Anyways, i am sticking to PC just to play SP since MP is really bad all around.

I get 60 FPS most of the time, some rare drops to 55, with SMAA Low (I'll explain why I chose the "Low").

I tried every AA setting and here's what I got (there is some bug with the outline in low light with most of the AA setting) :
- FXAA : a bit blury, no outline bug, almost no FPS impact (60)
- SMAA Low : very nice, no outline bug, almost no FPS impact (60)
- SMAA High : very nice too, but I got the outline bug, almost no FPS impact (60)
- TXAA 2x : nice, outline bug, light FPS impact (50-60)
- TXAA 4x : very nice in movement, outline bug, huge FPS impact (40-60)
- MSAA 4x : nice, outline bug, light FPS impact (55-60)

Note on the outline bug : it's a known bug of the beta, only appears with some AA setting, in the game, in low light, objects get an outline to help to see the layout, but this outline is rendered half the resolution when the bug occurs, and is not antialiased.

That's why I chose the SMAA Low setting, there's no aliasing visible, only temporal, and no awful outline bug.

In the videos I was not already aware of this outline bug, I captured it with SMAA High.

The "gayest thing ever"? Ît sounds really homophobic. :/

I'll never understand how calling people/things gay can mean something that pejorative. Some people really have a hard time being comfortable with their own masculinity. :p

Played this on PC@60FPS and PS3@28fps.

When your hunted, either keep moving, or move when you hear the sound of the enemy getting closer, also group up can help and use grenade to highlight enemy.
I've won many rounds as the hunted, is not one sided, it's not cod.

Same thing with defending the area. people can attack from above with fist to the ground, you can use shield, or just move about.

It's a decent take on MP, hopefully there will be a lot of other modes.

As for PS3/360 They really need to make it 30fps+

What program do you guys use to watch these videos? I'm having trouble with some fps drop in Windows Media Player.
Commented on 2013-01-31 14:12:54
I use VLC Media Player , works pretty smooth.

I use Windows Media Player as well, it uses GPU acceleration, but maybe the drops you get are in the videos ?
I know there's a few drop in my videos, caused by the recording, but most of the time it should be at 60.

I really enjoy the Hunter mode, I spent some hours playing it yesterday night, and the jey is to keep moving, as you said.
I even chase the hunters when I am being haunted, it's quite fun to chase them when you spot them killing other soldiers.

I guess someone hasn't played Halo 4.

Cloak is kinda lame, but it's a funny criticism to hear from someone who champions the campiest game I've ever played. Not that you play multiplayer games.

Completly agree with this, is really lame and sad to read somethign like that.

As for the game, I DL the beta last night but didn't had teh chance to try it, I will tonight and report with some impressions tomorrow.

:P

Wow, these comments surprise me. Although I'm waiting on the single player portion, I really enjoyed the Hunter mode. I've never played anything like it and it really kept me on my toes. Being a regular human was kinda scary especially when you're one of the last one's left and you hear then noise. Also being on the other side was pretty awesome, like you were an animal hunting.

The problem is though it's aspect of "team play" was useless. It seems like they didn't think far enough into the suspense to actually make a real impact with the main stream.

That is why usually use Windows Media Player for 1080 @60 FPS videos. But I get FPS drops with very high bitrated videos like this, which is about 40 Mbps and it happens very often that makes the video being 60 FPS pretty much pointless.
Media Player Classic is no good for 60 FPS videos as well.

Actually, team play in Hunter is the way to play it. For the Cell side at least. You have more chances to survive as a team.
I have mixed feelings about the Hunter mode. Can't say why exactly, but something is off.
Run into the first hacker myself today during Hunter Mode. It took 5 rounds to eventually kick him. I think a lot of players don't see the message when there is vote to kick.

I didn't know you can point and click on an xbox controller, dumbass.

I don't like that the guns have too much recoil. Or that you need to rack up a lot of experience to get better ones. I hate the idea of playing to play.

I'm really surprised at what frame rates you're getting with 2x680 gtx cards, i use a 670gtx and i was getting 50-60 fps max settings with smaa mid setting, maybe not optimised for sli in the beta?
Commented on 2013-01-31 21:22:07
I hope the singleplayer actually looks like in all those trailers, because this MP beta is not even close.
