Crysis 3 interview: 'We can't do more on current-gen console

Postby richomack360 » 19 Feb 2013, 16:22

But isnt it supposed to look kind of average on an Xbox ? Where most of the people will play it on ?

It's as pointless as Bugatti boasting about having the world's fastest car. Sure, its great, but how many people will own it and drive it to its potential ? Currently only a few, and one of them was James May...

Its a series that started on PC. And you need a PC to play it best. Only fair really.

This gen has dragged on so much, the consoles are now holding many games back. games developed specifically for PC and ported to Console are just so much better than when its done the other way around. (well for us PC users anyway)

You can build a decent gaming PC for £400~, and will save money long term, no Xbox live costs, cheaper games, cheaper DLC. Everythings cheaper!

How about improving the mediocre gameplay?

Looking at reviews so far, Yerli writing cheques his arse couldn't cash again.

I'm sure Naughty Dog, Santa Monica and Rockstar will show how it's done.

What the deuce? I try and be nicer to the Terry's and this interloper steals my biggest criticism?

Not being able to make a game look better is no excuse for not being able to make a good game.

The only thing this gen is holding back now is graphics which IMO is mostly to mask the lack of good gameplay.

I didn't realise he was a prostitute, how much business does his arse do?
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Yerli: I think we did more than that. What we did is, gameplay followed Crysis 1, story followed Crysis 2,


Oh dear. The story in Crysis 2 was shite. What I likes about the first game was the mystery surrrounding the events. The story in the second was boring.
