Mods And Ends: Pick ‘N’ Mix

This week, a few mods that I've been monitoring but haven't had a chance to have a proper go at yet. In some cases, that's because they haven't been released yet, in others it's because the hours in every day are sadly limited, and as well as playing games and writing about them, I very occasionally sleep. I even venture outside from time to time,…

Mods And Ends: The Worry of Newport

I use the word potential all the time. To the extent that it becomes annoying to the people around me. But it is an important word, especially in this still youthful industry. It’s locked in the bizarre ideas forming in the mind and on the hard drive of the smallest indie developer, and it’s evident in the expanding technical prowess of the largest blockbusters. It’s…

Crytek: Crysis 2’s Direction “Backfired”

Speaking with Gamasutra, Crytek bossman Cervat Yerli had this to say about the Crysis games: "Crysis 1's intention was, if I were to play it three years later, it looks great. And it does, actually, it fulfilled that. But it made it difficult for entry-level players. So with Crysis 2, we took a different direction, and it backfired a little bit." Yerli explained that the…

Crysis 2 Pulled From Steam?

"Where were you when the war began, Daddy?" "Well, little Ignatius H. Meer III, I was at my PC, staring vacantly at Twitter. Probably eating some crisps as I did. I'll never forget that dark, terrible day. The day that EA decided they could fight Steam." "Daddy? Why are you crying, Daddy?" Crysis 2 has disappeared from Steam, and is now described as being "Origin…

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.

Mod News: Excuses, Excuses

Where were you all last week? I turned up and no one was here, honest! What's that? No, I'm not crossing my fingers behind my back, and you definitely didn't see him heading off on holiday. What nonsense. Anyway, to make up for it, here's an extra-long edition of Mod News to cover the past two weeks. This time: Crash Bandicoot, a Warcraft III art…

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…

Mod News: Release The Valve

In the week of Portal 2's release, it seems apt that Valve's games should dominate the mod scene's output. While the range of titles you can mod these days is impressive, and so many of the tools are easy to learn, I've still yet to come across a moddable engine that's quite as intuitive and flexible as Source. I can't wait to see what people…

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:…

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…

Retro News: Crysis 2 Trailer

In our excitement of posting Pat's shaky-hand-footage of Crysis 2 we didn't actually post the full thing when it popped up on the 9th. We'd normally rather be never than late, being obsessed by appearances and fearing being mocked by our cool blogger friends, but we'll make an exception in this case. Basically, because it looks pretty lovely, doing the Gears-of-War-esque SAD SAD SONG OVER…

MAXMIMUM HYPE: The Big Crysis 2 Reveal

The internet is about to be ablaze with info from the recent Crysis 2 event in New York, which I totally didn't get invited to. I'M NOT BITTER. Fortunately news-sleuth Pat from VG247 has a load of it, including an interview with Crytek superboss, Cervat Yerli. Not much concrete on the PC version, other than suggestions that it will be "best". The impressions of the…

Cry Me A Robot

The MechWarrior: Living Legends mod popped a few times in comments over the break, and it has been landing in my inbox from various people, too. I can see why there's excitement. It's a Crysis mod based on the Mechwarrior universe, the beta for which is now underway. That means, well, robots piloted by men, with lasers, and missiles. You know the sort of thing.…

Replicants Of A Different Kind

This is rather beautiful: a series of famous movie environments - including BladeRunner, Aliens, and I Am Legend - recreated in the Unreal 3.0 (apparently) and Crysis engine, over on Incrysis.com. These were pulled from the original competition threads over at the Game Artist community forums. EDIT: Full submissions thread here.

Welcome (Back) To The Jungle: Crysis Warhead

Wahey, it's another video! But it's a bank holiday, so you should be grateful you're getting anything at all out of us tradition-spurning Brits, quite frankly. Plus it's apparently a leaked video, which adds the scintillating thrill of watching something you're not supposed to. Because seeing footage of games that might make you want to buy them is a bad thing. Yes.

Crysis Heads to War In September

So we've got a release date for Crysis Warhead, the... yep, I'm gonna say it. You can't stop me from saying it... expandalone for last year's system-eating FPS. It's September 16th - in America. In Europe, it's September 12th. Which is a) great news for we oft-second-fiddle Eurotrash and b) steeeeeeeyoooooooooopid - or at least it is so long as you subscribe to the theory…
