^I think this is an argument for explaining the real differences here. Model detail is better in C2 (so far, only an hour in), but having replayed the original recently, the foliage and jungle details on max settings are truely brilliant I think. Would like to see some of those jungle levels...
Micro-ing Zerg in outmatched fights will also keep you alive. Micro Mutalisks against BC's and win the day. This is early in the game of course.. late game Terran/Protoss upgrades
pretty much mean you're screwed if you let it get that far. This is my biggest problem right now.
[In Bronze] I'm seeing constant void ray rushes, if the attempted proxy cannons in my main fail to cause the Protoss player to be impressed with himself. Its nothing but belly laughs from me when a handful of upgraded Mutalisks take down an entire fleet of VR's and the Toss player rage quits...
I agree with this totally. If you're running hot as hell graphics... an intake is worthless. Turning it into an exhaust is another story. Try it (even more so with SLI/X-fire) and feel the heat pouring out. Using the Antec 902 I have 1 side, 1 rear, and the big ass top fan as a exhaust fans...
Personally i'm just glad Crytek is still gracing the pc market with their games (Despite the piracy vs. lost sales comments from them). This is whether or not Crysis 2 looks better than Cry1 or Warhead. Consider yourselves lucky they haven't jumped ship.. I'm not bitching one way or the other...
I reformatted out of curiosity, and so far from a perception standpoint its no different than my 640gb Blue (yes i've seen the benches, including HDtune).
Is there an obvious activity that could show me the "slowness" in comparison to a Caviar Black/Blue equivalent? Am i missing something...
Despite Gamespot's bias take on it, I think the game does an excellent job with music, ambiance, sound efx, and atmosphere... to do a damn fine job of representing the movies. I think the graphics (especially lighting in the darker maps/areas) are great. I guess my own personal bias from liking...
My current queue:
Timeshift (Played like 10% initially)
Far Cry 2 (20% or so)
Jericho (Yeah i know it sucks, but I almost made it to the end last time)
Crysis & Crysis Warhead (again for like 5th or 6th time apiece)
His new album blows and hes struggling to keep people's attention IMO. His last two records were the worst pieces of shit. The last decent thing he did was "Golden Age.." which was fairly aggressive w/ great lyrics.
Not that I care about LAN so much, but come the fuck on. I get that they only have 3 franchises going, but three seperate games (claiming content and storytelling integrity) and now NO lan support is indicating $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
It was tearing before and after installing the driver suite. Rolling the drivers forward and back (including beta) didn't solve it either. There is no tearing in Firefox 3 or 3.5 RC1. Games are fine.
Does that make it obvious?
I just switched back to Firefox due to extreme visual tearing when using IE8. Has this happened to anybody else? I have the latest Forceware drivers and BIOS for my machine as well. Firefox 3 isn't showing any tearing so far.
Did an OC project for fun. Thought I would share. I know Crysis AND the chip are old news, so don't bitch :)
