Crysis Warhead is even prettier than Crysis

Crysis Warhead is not a direct sequel to the original Crysis, the visceral 2007 FPS that made PCs worldwide tremble. Crysis Warhead is more of a parallel story about Michael “Psycho” Sykes, one of the characters in the original.

Play Crysis in the PS3 even if it’s not yet ported

So there are rumors of Crysis coming to the current-gen consoles. So what? You don’t have to wait for that to happen because at this point, you can already run Crysis in your PS3. You just need Ubuntu 7.04 in a disk, a Windows XP/Vista PC, a PS3, and an average IQ.
Don’t believe me? You […]

Yahtzee chimes in on Crysis belatedly

I don’t know what Yahtzee has been up to, but he certainly is a bit late in getting a Crysis review out, considering that the game has been out since November last year. Then again, the guy is based in Australia, so I can’t speak for the timeliness of new titles’ arrivals.
After all, Australia is […]

Crap-Detector: Strong PC sales would convince Crytek to port Crysis to consoles

You’ve probably received word that EA dismissed rumors of Crysis being ported over to the Xbox 360. It’s not really breaking news since EA has denied this before. Add to the fact that Crytek actually boasted of next-generation consoles (i.e. Xbox 360 and the PS3) not being powerful enough to run its shooter and you […]

Rumor: Crysis is going to the 360?

Whether Crysis is really selling well or not, is up for discussion. What’s undeniable is the recent buzz that Crytek’s resource hog game is mentioned in—a console port. Sure, Crytek may huff all they want that the “current-gen” consoles can’t handle Crysis, but you can’t deny that porting them over to the Xbox 360 and […]

Crysis is languishing in sales

There was a time when Crytek took pride in making Crysis very punishing on your average systems. The company’s senior game designer even boasted that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 don’t have “sufficient power” to run Crysis.
Fast forward to present day.
The NPD Group recently revealed that Crysis sold just 86,633 units last November, following […]

Have you ever seen more exploding barrels in Crysis?

Physics engines are fun. They’re so fun that a game was created just to showcase such physics. Unlike that rip-off, the Crysis video below won’t require you to shell any cash. And you know what? Watching 3,000 barrels tumble down for free is much more fun than a one-level slingshot simulator worth $9.99.

If you’ve always […]

While November 16 has yet to arrive, GameSpot’s Jason Ocampo has already reviewed Crysis. His verdict? Pretty good.

Crap-Detector: Crysis is prettier in DirectX 10

Remember that bit about Crysis needing DirectX 10 (and Windows Vista) so that you can view all the eye candy in their gorgeous glory? Well, forget I ever mentioned it.

Some geniuses at the Crysis-Online forums have just discovered that by simply copying and pasting a line in Crysis’ configuration file, you can now enable […]

Shit-detector: Crysis demo is delayed to meet launch date

Originally, September 25 is a red-letter day not only for Xbox 360 owners, but for PC gamers as well. You see, having the Crysis demo on this day is supposed to ease the pain of not having an Xbox 360 or play Halo 3 with the millions of fans that lined up to get their […]

Crysis demo is coming next month

September 25 will be an important day in 2007 gaming. Aside from the release of Halo 3 on the Xbox 360, the day also marks the arrival of the Crysis demo on the PC. Getting the demo will answer the single most important question that PC gamers are wondering.

“Can my rig run Crysis?”
