Games have never melted pc's.

I always remember some idiot dev saying he once got the PS3 to smoke. Covering up the vents will do that for you.

Haven't seen anything in CRYSIS3 that looks that much better then 2.

No i haven't played it, but seen plenty of PC footage.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2258d ago (Edited 2258d ago )

Are you retarded?

Anyway.. Next gen starts on pc 2013!!

AKS2258d ago

It's not truly "next gen" unless it has Toad Tech!

Nimblest-Assassin2258d ago

Yup... my pc is going to explode trying to render that toad

CoryHG2258d ago

next gen started last year with battlefield.

StayStatic2258d ago (Edited 2258d ago )

Your much better off downloading it from the cry-dev website , the youtube algorithm kills the quality a lot:

Link at the bottom of the page , right click + save as = maximum quality :)

Pain_Killer2258d ago

Next Gen on the PC started in 2008 with Crysis 1.

From then consoles have been a limiting factor for developers.

actually CPU's and GPU's can do overheat like crap after running at full 100% load after a couple of hours running, which can melt down the motherboard.

BTW, u appear to be just another frostcrap 2 fan.

CRYSIS 3 does looks way better than ANY other game ever released thanks to its use of DirectX 11 and many other superior features which no other game engine can compete with one of them its the amazing tessellation.

Morrigan-Aensland2258d ago

I'm happy to hear this. I wish all pc devs would do this.

ninjahunter2258d ago

Starcraft 2 melted PCs.
The game didnt have a locked FPS on the main menu when it first launched causing A large amount of PC's to overheat, destroying their graphics cards.

tachy0n2258d ago

i remember when the mod for GTA IV icehancer was in its beta stages, there was a warning by the mod creators which they said if you owned a GTX4xx cards it will overheat them and kill them(melt) unless you had an aftermarket cooler O.o

i didnt believed it at first, i tried the mod anyways, the temps on my GTX460 went from 35c to 98c even though i had an aftermarket cooler (artic cooling accelero)

Company of Heroes fried my power supply. Of course it was one of those cheap ones that came with the casing but it taught me not to use cheap non-branded ones anymore.

EDD2132258d ago (Edited 2258d ago )

"Next Gen" actually started with BattleForge. Circa 2009
Unless you count S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat

tee_bag2422258d ago

@ chukamachine - You don't get it do you ? You must be pretty young so I'll bite my tongue.

SilentNegotiator2258d ago (Edited 2258d ago )

It's a figure of speech, silly. Obviously Cevat hasn't made it his goal to MURDER PCs...

Anyway, I doubt my machine will even whimper playing another console-centric Crysis. Just make the game good and stop drumming up the elitist hype crap.

kasser2257d ago

"Games have never melted pc's"

Obviously you don't know what you're talking about. He is talking about the previous PC eras, before the 360 launched and MS stopped making games for PC.

We are talking about games like DooM III, Half-Life 2, Star Wars big titles like Jedi Outcast, Max Payne 1, Battlefield 2, Unreal games and more.

The last games that pushed systems to its end that I can think of are Crysis 1 and Oblivion. They were very demanding games -at their launch time- that required latest graphics card, multi-core CPUs and high amount of RAM.

Now, buying the latest graphic tech & intel CPUs is irrelevant because no game push your system to the end unless you play it at crazy resolution, maximize the AA multiplier, and maybe throw in some 3D and you still at 40 frames per seconds. With Crysis 3 latest PC showcase trailer, we have hope and faith in Crytek and I hope newer games showcase that too.

"We're bringing back the 'can it run it' myth" , "Crysis 3 will melt down a lot of PCs"

-Yeah Ok, somehow I doubt that... -But you have to give him credit for this -

Yerli has also admitted "that Crysis 2 PC was compromised by the console versions." -Finally the truth

I respect him for being honest with gamers.. I hope they do something amazing and knock it out the park with Crysis 3


morganfell2258d ago

And as soon as the next console gen appears Crytek will go running back. This is the company that is preaching melting PCs but also says free to play is the future.

If you drive to their offices you will see a guy run outside every ten minutes and stick a wet finger in the air.

john22258d ago

If we get free to play games looking like Crysis 3, then I won't mind this move. And after Command & Conquer going F2P (and powered by Frostbite 2), I expect to see more triple-A quality games as F2P titles

Pandamobile2258d ago

Give me a reason to upgrade my video card and I'll reignite my passionate love for you, Crytek.

RedDeadLB2258d ago

So you want someone to make you spend more money in exchange for a recognition of your love for Crytek?

I on the other hand want to see excellent looking games that can run nearly maxed on older hardware (like Battlefield 3 for instance). I don't want to spend a whole lot of money to enjoy a game.

It's not all about the technology behind a game you know. Art style also matters. I find that even Half Life 2 still looks good.

Pandamobile2258d ago

I haven't touched the insides of my computer since 2009 and I'm looking for a reason to throw some money at it. Is that such a problem for you?

Obviously art direction is important too, but nothing irks me more than seeing a game with good art and crappy technology behind it.

Muffins12232257d ago

get a gtx680,can run the first crysis at 60 fps and above at max settings.Will easily run this game at 30 fps at least on max settings if there saying is true about it going back to "can it run crysis"

ATi_Elite2257d ago (Edited 2257d ago )

Crysis and the CryEngine 2 was the TRUTH and it beat the crap outta millions (using my Rock Voice) "AND MILLIONS" of GPU's! Crysis made my X1950 Pro about worthless upon release!

Crysis 2 and 3 on the CryEngine 3 is the Next Gen Unreal Engine. Although it renders nicely, everything seems to be made from the same material. That Play-Doh / Plastic look that everything has TO ME is not impressive.

Make no bones about it the CryEngine 3 is a console game engine with DX11 slapped on top of it. Yes it has some nice features, scales well, and you can Slap DX11 on top of it but it's NOT A true PC DX11 Engine!!

I'll take Virtual Reality Engine 3 (Arma 3) Frostbite 2 (Battlefield 3) and the 4A Engine (Metro 2033) over the CryEngine 3 any day of the week but that is just my Graphical preference.

I think Arma 3 is gonna put a hurting on many PC's especially when they release the ACE MOD 3 which gives Arma some very high detailed photo-like graphics.

Crysis 3 not so much! Metro 2033 is still the beast to judge a GPU's power by. Most benchmarks are run with D.O.F. (Depth of Field) turned off cause GPU's can't handle it.

Also the Witcher 2 on Max settings with Uber sampling on is a GPU killer.

VanillaBear2258d ago (Edited 2258d ago )

Here we go...Crytek running it's mouth as usual

How did Crysis 2 work out....oh yeah you had your head too far up MS arse to notice.
