Now, this is the Crysis I want to play – far more exciting than all that rubbish alien stuff.
(With apologies for the music.)

ME WANT NOW. I want this guy’s system, and to do this with Crysis. (I can’t even play Crysis on my rig. Haven’t tried, I just know.)

Is it real time, or recorded – and had the video sped up, like the other Crysis Mass Physics video?

That’s awesome, and gives me a terrible urge for The Authority: The Videogame, because we can have proper fucking shit up now.

Someone has way too much time on their hands. And one hell of a rig.
Damn it looked cool though. And I thought spawning 500 barrels in Gary’s Mod was scary…

see all you young things talk about your digital weighted companion cubes, but at the end of the day fads pass and you all come crawwwwwling back to barrels
13/12/2007 at 09:58
Holy fuck that’s awesome.
13/12/2007 at 10:25
I somewhere read that it took 4 seconds per frame to render, or 1 second for 4 frames? Dont know ;)
But I am sure Its not realtime.
13/12/2007 at 10:25
Out of interest, having never played Crysis (my PC would probably melt) – how do you get the barrels to swirl around like that? It looks like a shoal of barrels in places…

It’s a tornado, apparently – something encountered in one of the game’s later missions.

Nice. Maybe I need to upgrade to a DX10 video card, but I can’t quite get over seeing the trees fall down post-explosion, or be ripped up by the wind…
It sometimes doesn’t look quite to scale though in the video – sort of looks like he’s playing with Coke cans rather than barrels. Must be the video resolution.
13/12/2007 at 10:54
Jesus the music is AWFUL. Really, that sort of metal has no reason to exist, it just sucks. (Gimme some ‘Champs, thanks)
Impressive video though. Wonder what sort of rig the game requires in order to WATCH the 3000 barrel explosion without crashing.
13/12/2007 at 11:07
Mindblowing stuff. Here‘s another fun little Crysis physics video.
13/12/2007 at 11:08
If that’s what the game looks like with the settings most/all of the way up, I think I may have to forcibly restrain myself from trying to play it on my undoubtedly inadequate system. Keep my experience pure for whenever I can actually run it remotely on that level.
13/12/2007 at 11:09
Goddamit that would be excellent. Why do you put such ideas in my head, when I know we’ll never have them?
13/12/2007 at 11:35
What band is this? Sounds pretty good.
13/12/2007 at 12:29
Band’s name is Kalmah.

I don’t think anyone’s desktop could run crysis like this. From what I can tell there’s an option that lets you record at a set framerate, but the actual game runs much slower, in the video terry posted I think he said his system was running at 8 seconds per frame in order to record at 30 fps.

Mr Pink says:
What is he talking about when he says his PC will crash if he looks at the exploding barrels? I don’t believe him. Why on earth would that be? I want to see the actual explosion!
13/12/2007 at 15:04
Perhaps the engine just keels over as it spawns all the explosion sprites/particles.
13/12/2007 at 15:33
It probably hits some form of memory limit – by turning away the majority of the sprites get culled.
I liked the inferno over the shoulder effect he got when he turned to the side though, they were some big flames.
13/12/2007 at 15:50
Awesome video & music!
13/12/2007 at 15:59
That is what I expected playing games with a PhysX card (or whatever it is called) was going to be like. Shame its not.
13/12/2007 at 16:29
I suddenly feel an urge to listen to Jose Gonzales’ Heartbeats cover.

Why must all cool Youtube videos be ruined with shit music that doesn’t fit the video in any way whatsoever?
The internet needs more videos like the WoW “we’re trying to kill Onyxia but fail” -video where you have the Pokémon tv series theme tune as the music. The dull idea made into an instantly awesome video just by music
13/12/2007 at 17:57
> Why must all cool Youtube videos be ruined with shit music that doesn’t fit the video in any way whatsoever?
Well, obviously we all have differing taste in music. But I’d still argue some better than others. :P Personally, if I really wanted to put some metal with that video, I’d perhaps pick some Voivod or Fucking Champs. Or perhaps something a little more out there like Naked City.

Proper Stranger says:
that is friggen sweet!!!
pretty impressive for the engine to render and calculate all them barrel physics
13/12/2007 at 18:40
You’re all wrong, the video clearly should be remade to the tune of DJ/Rupture and Sister Nancy’s Little More Oil.
13/12/2007 at 18:56
Ok, someone has to ask it so, has anyone made a video of two towers of boxes/barrels with a plane crashing into it?
14/12/2007 at 06:29
The worst thing about youtube is the terrible soundtracks people feel compelled to add.
15/12/2007 at 03:43
Has anyone noticed that the barrels don’t interact with each other once they start falling? Mildly disappointing.
16/12/2007 at 11:35
Can you say “Not worth the cost”?
22/12/2007 at 06:43
I actually liked the music, anyone know what band that is?
22/12/2007 at 06:48
