Downloading now...... :D

Thanks bro. :thumbup:

Its better to get a head start, because once everyone starts downloading, the speed slows to a crawl, even with my FIOS connection.

You actually don't need any registration....well, at least if you already played Crysis 1 or Warhead online. You just log in with the same account and you are good to go.

The graphics are actually really good. Better than I expected since it is also available on consoles.

AHHHH!!! WTFFFF!? I haven't played Crysis in awhile and have never played multiplayer. I try to register and it says my email is already used. Then I try to remember password/nickname and the page the loads is broken. GRRRR!!! Such a tease!!


This sucks. Now I'm pouting.

I need to build a new desktop right about now....

Thanks harry, but uninstalling my G35 drivers isn't much of a work-a-round :rofl: :cry:

This only makes me want to wait until after the full game is released and see if this G35 headset problem gets fixed before I shell out on it myself.

Also makes me sort of glad I didn't pre-order...

Yeah, I have the G35 as well. It sucks that the audio doesn't work. I am still looking for a work around. For now I have some crappy speakers hooked up that belonged to a gateway I had 10 years ago. Other than that though the game is pretty sweet.

Is that what they suggested? :rofl:

That's like CoD Black Ops support where they told me the game doesn't have firewall support and that I need to disable it and any routers

:lol:

Crysis 2 graphics: pretty good! Enough to crank my GTX 275 up to 104 deg. C after a few minutes of playing around :shock: (forgot that Crysis gaming needs more than the default 40% fan speed).

Crysis gameplay: bit of a yawn, and not liking the automated bad language thrown in during the gaming. I much prefer the old multiplayer atmosphere.
