Crysis 2 Demo

Posted on March 08, 2011

I decided to throw together a bit of video (below) from my first experiment with the Crysis 2 demo recently made available via Steam. It has some of the video you see when the demo first loads and some gameplay video. If the demo is any indicator the game will be well worth buying in my opinion.

I was a bit surprised to see controlling the nano suit is different than it was in the first Crysis and after quickly learning the new keys it became obvious it is much better this way. Hitting a single key to enable stealth mode alone is a huge improvement if you ask me.

Great graphics and lots of improvements have me convinced I need to add it to my list.

Crysis 2 multiplayer demo also coming to PS3

Posted on February 27, 2011

Looks like Crytek’s planning to pull a nanomechanically-engineered hat trick with its multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 — it’s out already on 360, it’s coming to PC on March 1, and according to the game’s latest official trailer (posted after the jump), the demo is “coming soon” to the PS3 as well.

We’ve contacted EA to get a more specific timeframe for the demo’s arrival. For now, check out the video after the jump to see exactly how the game looks on Sony’s home console. Actually, you could just go read the back-and-forth in these YouTube comments between PS3 and 360 fanboys — it’s just as entertaining as the trailer itself.

Crysis 2

Posted on January 26, 2011

Check out this new “Crysis 2: Multiplayer Demo Tutorial” video. Wow.

If there is one thing I liked most about the first Crysis it was the gorgeous graphics. (There is a quick video I took of the graphics in the first Crysis on the videos page.) Looking to me like Crysis 2 will have definite improvements on that aspect.

Looks like there are some definite improvements in other areas as well. I think I might have to add this one to my list of must haves.

Bulletstorm demo blows up Jan. 25 on Xbox Live, PSN

Posted on January 14, 2011

“It can’t possibly be that stupid, can it?”

It’s the thought we’ve had from the moment we first saw the game title (which is still Bulletstorm, by the way) to when we heard an NPC call the player a “butt chugger” and “wiener apprentice,” or whatever it is they actually say. Can the game really be this meatheaded and still, by most accounts, be a joy to play? You’ll be able to judge for yourself when a demo for the game drops on Xbox Live and PSN on Tuesday, January 25. (If there’s a PC demo on the way, EA has made no mention of it.)

The Bulletstorm demo features the score-attack “Echo Mode,” which provides a sliver of the campaign with rigid time and weapon constraints, and then compares your score against friends. Your tolerance for being profanely insulted will not, as far as we know, be tested.
