    I do have to say, It feels more like a Crysis meets COD then the direction I was hopeing they would go, forward.

    While its not an entirely bad thing, MP is much more fun then it was before now thats its more like COD. It does suck to see that instead of doing something new and creative of their own, they just applied what worked for another game to theirs to get Crysis 2.

    So its more Console like, yes or at least at the moment. But they way you toggle and switch between powers is much better than Crysis 1. Shift automatically uses the suits run feature and drains energy like it does in HL. Something they should have done in the beginning so good to see that in 2.

    Whats missing in the Beta that I hope we see in the final is destructible environments like the first Crysis had. Right now its like the Source engine.

    I want to see bricks fall and trees snap.

    In democratic societies, like America, most people think what their governments tells them to think in media, because most of them is to lazy to think for them self. They say piracy is evil, everyone says piracy is evil.... Why??? They heard that on TV...

    and people shouldn't speed doesn't mean it wont happen doesn't mean it will ever stop. this is not me walking up and stealing a woman's purse this is me taking a stack of 1's and 0's that some got paid peanuts to put together. its not immoral its not the end of the world no one got hurt no one died. honestly i think pirating helps drive prices down windows 98 was more expensive than the computer it got installed on as people continued to pirate and burn copies for friends microsoft took notice now i can get windows 7 for $100 for the full version. how many more people would buy these games if they were $30 and not $60 the guy who couldn't buy the game cause of price can now and the guy who only bought one $60 can now buy 2 different games.

    Is piracy ever good? Does it have any positive outcomes for anybody other than the person who doesn't have to pay to get the product?

    It's still illegal though even if you degrade it to just 1's and 0's. You might as well tell writers they just put words together so it's ok to steal their work. Or movies, because they are just flashing lights right! And cars too, they're just a bunch of metal and plastic shit wrapped up in a layer of paint, whatever.

    What about people who are informed and think piracy is wrong? You are obtaining a product that in a perfect market environment, you wouldn't be able to obtain without paying for it! Call it whatever you want, but I view that as stealing. And guess what? Stealing was immoral long before the U.S government was around.

    Didn't I just explain how it was immoral?
    Ultimately you are right in that it will never stop, but that doesn't mean people shouldn't just give up in trying to stop it. Let's just stop this pointless argument, it will go nowhere.

    For education and poor schools, I'd say so.

    If there no piracy I wouldn't need computer, since there is no way I could afford most of the software. Hell, only office and W7 worth more than my PC. Music, movies, etc... Without piracy most of my country, Serbia, would be in IT prehistory, because W7 costs as a hole month salary... Without piracy, there would be millions of computers less, and the biggest problem is that rich companies and their board of directors would be much, much richer than is today. Instead of their Lamborghini, they would ride in their private airplanes, and the one who have airplanes wound have their personal space ship...

    You could almost say Piracy makes the world go round. Its not just your country that would suffer, but many other 2nd and 3rd world countries would as well.

    Even certain places in the Unites States would suffer if piracy did not exist at all. Corps are greedy, thats the bottom line. And while its easy to say don't support their stuff, sometimes we have no choice but to use it. (Office, Win7, etc..)

    Even though it is Crytek's decision to sort of close down the openess of the maps, look at it like this. Using the included editor, people can go back to making open-jungle worlds using the CryEngine 3 :toast:

    From what I've been reading so far, my gut tells me this was intentionally leaked by Crytek/EA.

    Do I have proof? Do I have facts to back it up? Nope, on both counts. Just my gut.

    IMHO, I just think they did it to gauge people's reaction to the game and as an opportunity to get back on their piracy soapbox

    I was just playing Darkest Hour and wondering why this free game is so much better then anything out there at the moment!!!! Because it is designed for a specific group, adult and thinking in this case, not to be a frekking blockbuster. Really wondering what the hell the guys of World of Tanks are thinking when they release such kindergarten maps that could fit in a The Simpsons game...
    Sorry for the rant. I have paid too many times for games that are extremely shitty. Is there a software return policy? No! Sometimes they win. But giving'em some of their own 'pills' (greed or whatever you want to call it) is okay to me.
    BTW, I am not downloading C2, C1 was such a deception. Games with monsters are so much more boring than games with nazis or talibans.
    End of my sunday prayer, lol

    If it was leaked intentionally it wasnt by Crytek. If there is a conspiracy here it was on EA's end. They way EA is has been handling PC development I'm not surprised.

    I'd like if EA just didn't make any game I like, they are the worst assholes in the world of games... and I feel bad when I give them my money.

    I think this is a pre release "demo" of the game on purpose. If Crytek/EA wanted to, they could track down/sue any person who downloaded/seeded. But I think they allowed this as an estimate to see download numbers and exactly how many people are interested in the game. There's no say of how it happened, who did it. Only speculations, which most of the time aren't correct.

    From what I've seen of the gameplay on youtube it seems like a good game, graphics are nice etc.

    Come here in Serbia and try to earn some money and buy all that legal software.... Without piracy almost no one here, and other countries with low standard wouldn't have computers. Me first. And you cant compare stealing money from the bank and stealing software. I buy music, copy it and give it to someone else and I'm guilty as charged???? How far could this philosophy go???

    This could have happened with any media, song album, PS3 games, Xbox games, PC games, PC software, and this is the company's fault.

    Why i dont buy into this "pirates are evil downloaders the world is gonna end shit" is cause im sure virii costs the world more in lost productivity than piracy but no one has ever even proposed once to attack and end all malware and its networks.

    Have you noticed all the youtube videos about this leak and gameplay? Nothing has been done about them, I'm beginning to think this was on purpose.
