  1. Announced in November 2010, Crytek has mostly kept its upcoming free-to-play venture under lock and key, but it's hoping to pique your interest this week with a few new screenshots.…

    I was thinking the same thing, that video makes it look like a bad version of CoD, i'd rather go and pay £20 for BF3.

    considering a single copy of MW3 can cost up to $120 where I live, I think this is going to do extremely well.

    I want BF2142 with actual destructible environments already.
  6. Burty117 a bad version of cod... are you seriously high right now cod looks like complete poop compared to this atleast this game doesn't copy+paste everything and make you pay $120 for something that is 10yrs old lol
  7. This guy reloads so much, and he has a 100 round magazine!

    I love how everything is in Chinese (i think) and then at the end the girl announces you lost in English! lol
  10. Yay !

    Anything is better than that COD nonsense.
  11. The best free to play fps game available right now with an excellent graphics is probably AVA Alliance of Valiant Arms. I played it even before it was offfered through Steam. I hope Crytek is does it.

    Current look is meh at best. Feels like standard military FPS... nothing special... The models are not even uniquely wow... I did like that each team had different color "bullet wizzes".

    "Free" mean unless I pay, I'm nerfed and the game will suck.

    Where do you live that it costs twice as much for the same product, even when you have the Internet?

    Meh, looks okay. I wish the combat were not so CoD: Advance Warfare-esque. Also, those 'co-op' markers really look out of place, maybe they should give you the option to turn them off. I am sure you can memorize the locations, or maybe use a HUD element that isn't so invasive. They still have a ways to go to make this look fluid.

    movement was awkward looking, map looked small, I didn't see any physics besides the necessary, interface is alright - besides huge *** reticle and hit indicator. Just another cookie cutter from 2005...

    Then again, they can make it better as this should be beta, even better, maybe alpha...

    I live in Australia where the retail copy of MW3 is $120 or on steam you can get it for the 'low' price of $100, even though our currency is worth more than America's right now so it should be more like $40. And they wonder why people pirate so much.. >_>

    Wow, that is some serious bullsh*t right there, I like to buy games but Jeez, I would Pirate as well at those prices!
  18. hmm, I paid $15 for MW3. It's well worth what I paid.

    Guys, guys, guys... It's FREE! So what if it's a bit "meh" and not top of the FPS food chain? Did I mention the fact that it's FREE? If it stays only meh, they'll never get the micro-transactions and upgrade sales that most free-to-play games require. Either way, it costs you nothing to try it out and see if you like it enough to actually drop cash on it. Cause it's FREE!

    We've become so jaded... It's like we have to always find faults in things. Which reminds me, that WAS way too much reloading!!! I actually started developing an ammo-conservation OCD reaction to the whole thing. :p

    Doesn't look so bad for a F2P FPS, especially when comparing it to what is currently available. Might have to check this out when it's released and hopefully they improve it as it does seem a bit rough.
  21. Bring me a game that is not just an incremental increase in graphics and AI over previous games. I know consoles are dragging down the PC gaming sector, but I can guarantee that if some development studio came out with something that just blew the doors off of anything we've ever seen, the vast majority of PC gamers would jump at the opportunity to buy it.

    I want textures with resolutions indistinguishable from reality. I want emotive, true-to-life characters. I want dynamic, volumetric, soft-shadowed lighting. I want true reflection and refraction. I want to see tesselation used to make models with no discernible polygons. I want physics that makes me feel "there". I want pre-rendered quality.

    Most of us have tens-of-thousands of MHz available, gigs of memory to spare, graphics hardware of unprecendented power, and terabytes of storage.

    Show me what all this hardware is really capable of.

    Surely -this- is not the best we can do:


    ... is it?

  22. I agree this game looks terrible
