    It has become clear that Crysis 3 developers want what COD has.

    I like this, and hope it becomes prominent. I quit CS:GO because I ran into 3 games in a row with hackers shortly after increasing my rank. I wouldn't mind checking out competitive alternatives.

    I'd like to try this one out, missed the alpha. Let's hope that it feels and plays better than the 2nd, which is unlikely, but still worth hoping.

    Yea, getting it now. I was wondering how they were going to do it... I was hoping they were going to update the alpha version I have installed, but it's a whole new download.. :toast:

    Downloading now at 1MB/s. 62% complete. I'm curious how it will run on my 670.

    Game runs 10-20% worse on a single 7970 than it did in closed alpha for me, and crossfire is still apparently not supported for 7970s on this...

    I'm not a happy camper right now. Hopefully AMD will release a beta driver or CAP soon that will fix things.

    Check out the airport map for some awesome looking graphics. Though would like to ask you if in interior you have some nasty jaggies, seems like a glitch.

    Well this is a fail. Try to login when you start up the game, and you can't type anything. I made sure my curser and shit was in the box, but no type. :banghead:

    Disappointed to hear that crossfire isn't working yet; i expect less than optimal frame rates :(

    Did anyone notice how they were showing clips of Crysis 1 and quotes/comments made towards Crysis 1?

    I thought that was hilarious. They should have never sold themselves out to consoles.

    Couple of quick questions... how intrusive is the origin client, and would this even be playable on my 480?

    I started the download but I had to pause it in an attempt to let my WCG work upload faster... I do look forward to getting into it tonight.
