Mod News: Clever Girl

Quite a lot of mod news this week, apparently, even though there's very little for you to actually play. There's a long-awaited update from Jurrassic Life, as well as plenty of other gubbins related to Half-Life 2, Crysis, Stalker: Clear Sky, Portal 2 and Dirt 3. That's a lot of games! Read on to find out what's what.

Crysis 2 Retaliation Map Pack Available

Level up! Four of them, actually. The Retaliation map pack for Crysis 2 is now available for $10, say EA, presumably for purchase within the game because I certainly can't see anywhere on the internet to buy it. The four maps, “Park Avenue” “Transit” “Shipyard” and “Compound” all look like they'd make a nice home for an excitable nano-warrior, and you can see all four…

Cry For Free: Crysis 2 Editor, CryEngine SDK

A new splashpage at CryMod, which is currently being overhauled, reveals that this summer will see the apperance of both a Crysis 2 editor and a CryEngine SDK. What does this mean? Well, it means people will be able able to make levels for Crysis 2, but also that they'll be able to make non-commercial stuff for free using the CryEngine tech. Crytek's Mr Yerli…

Crysis 2 Will Go Up To 11

After a couple of weeks of web-wide worrying and shouting and bickering and excellently satirical editorials, you may be glad to hear that Crysis 2 is to receive its in-doubt DirectX 11 patch after all. This comes via the official forums, wherein it was officially said on an official forum, despite being officially said on other official forums that it mightn't happen. That seals it:…

Spotlight On Biscuit- Crysis 2 Impressions

It's a top quality Spotlight on Biscuit we've got for you this week. Not only do we have Total Biscuit giving his hugely positive impressions on Crysis 2 single player in a video he's dubbed "How Being Allowed to Fail is Awesome", a sentiment very close to the hearts of most everyone here at RPS, but I do some thinking about the mighty Party Ring.…

Crysis 2’s Shocking Tech Compromise: Proof

Having played Crysis 2, the latest from the former technical innovators at Crytek, I have to express that I'm not only horrified, but also shocked, at the paucity of graphical accomplishments in what should have been a groundbreaking game. It's quite clear that massive compromises have been made in order to keep the console market happy, meaning the PC version of the game is crippled…

Wot I Think: Crysis 2

Crysis 2 is now available in both Europe and North America. The sequel to the Crytek's PC-only 2007 technology showcase FPS, Crysis, it's one of the most intensely anticipated games of 2011. And it's now multi-platform, too. What does that all mean for us? Well, it's a given that many computer dudes will get shot, but just how good is the shooting? And should this…

Hans Zimmer Working On Crysis 2 OST

EA have just announced that the Crysis 2 score has been worked on by Hans Zimmer. Er, actually, let's start again. Open this page in another window, and then press the button at the same time as you read that. Done? See, that's why this is worth a post. Zimmer, who's behind the excellent scores of Inception, Dark Knight and Renaissance Man, has also worked…

Byte-Syze: The Crysis 2 Demo

Just a quick one, as gallons of hot caffeinated beverage must be consumed before full-scale writing can commence. The Crysis 2 multiplayer demo is now available: prepare your tubes for delivery of Crytek's latest GPU-troubler. It's got two maps (Skyline, set on top of the rooftops and interiors of skyscrapers, and Pier 17, an open environment with limited cover), two modes (standard team deathmatch and…

Crysis 2 Shows “Prophet’s Journey”

Via beautiful Blues, we get another Crysis 2 trailer. Yes, this is turning into Far Cry 2, where the number of trailers reaches a crazy saturation point before launch. Anyway, this one is about Jacob Hargreave, the man with the nanosuit obsession. It's detailing some of the story, which was written by Richard Morgan and Peter Watts. Watts, incidentally, it is a genuinely excellent SF…

Crytek: “PC Gaming Is Very Important To Us”

Crytek bossman Cervat Yerli has spoken of his disappointment over the recent leak of Crysis 2. Writing on the MyCrysis message boards he said: "While we are deeply disappointed by these events, we are all completely overwhelmed by the support we have received from you, our community." He continued: "We can assure you that PC gaming is very important to us and will always be…

An Actual Crisis: Crysis 2 Leaked

EDIT: Read EA's curt response here. "Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC development community." I have no words. Actually, I have some words- according to a thread of the Facepunch forums (which may or may not be deleted any second depending how the Facepunch server holds up), a developer build of Crysis 2 containing the full game, multiplayer and…

Crysis 2’s Nanosuit Has Surprising Features

CryTek are revamping the "Nanosuit Showroom" thing on their website, rightly surmising that the clever battlesuit is the best thing that Crysis has going for it. There's not much there at the moment, to be honest, but to tie in with this there's another multiplayer focused trailer (posted below) that talks up the features of the suit in the online game. There's lots of detail…

If Only There Was Some Kind Of Game Trailer

You know, I was just sat here thinking: it's been hours since I posted a game-related trailer footage. Ideally it would be a trailer in which dudes gets shot, other dudes get kicked, and even more dudes get exploded. It would also contain voice-over in which some slightly sinister older guy talks about weapons in a creepy way. Now THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING.

Chryst: Crysis 2 Minimum Specs Out

More than three years on and Crysis remains one of the most technically demanding games you can buy for your PC, a dubious honour it shares with such fine programs as Arma 2 and Photoshop. Now it is the future and Crysis has a sequel and the minimum specs for that sequel have been disgorged by VG247. How bad are they? Are they awful? Well,…

Cry For Me(n): Crysis 2 Multiplayer Manshoots

Aha! I thought we were going to see a bit more of that Brink-style sliding and vaulting from Crysis 2, and here it is in the multiplayer trailer. Overall: men get shot. But also: they get punched. Additionally: there's some frictionless arse travel. Yeah, and it looks like a riot, frankly. Looking forward to getting my hands on this. (Never did really get on with…
