Say what you will about the Crysis games, the visuals for Crysis 3 looks incredibly stunning beautiful (naturally it needs to be watched in 1080p). Also looks like a bit more open world-y than 2, but I suspect that won't be the case
Crysis 2 was my favourite shooter last year, simply because it had one thing most others forget: Pacing. There are moments without explosions, moments where you're just taking in the world. The threat level goes up constantly and as they do, you too get more powerful, and need to adapt. This is the main thing I dislike about most modern single player campaigns. It feels like you walk for a second without tripping over an elaborate set piece. They don't take time to suck you into their world, they just want you to shut off your brain and let them do everything for you.
Anyway, seeing that made me reinstall Crysis 2. I'm playing that, and this fucking amazing game called Hotline Miami. It's an indie title, and it's already in the leagues of X-Com, Torchlight 2, Guild Wars 2 and Spec Ops: The Line as my games of the year. It makes violence mean something, much like Spec Ops, and when I played it straight after watching the movie "Drive" and the 80's "Nostalgia" (I was born in 92, so I can't really be nostalgic...) almost killed my brain.
@Silent Hills: Lot of cool design elements in that trailer.
@Final Fantasy: So torn by the trailer. I love the colossal monsters, environments and visuals but the characters are complete rubbish and the car is so extrinsic and distracting.
@Bloodborne: New trailer makes the game look even better than before.
@MGS 5: 20 minute demo shown. Top stuff. Took place in the jungle region which is my favourite type of biome in metal gear. It's one of the few games that knows it's a game and just embraces it. So much goofy content...playboy boxes, parachuting both living and still objects to your base and tons of other stuff that most other games would get criticized for including.
Hell yeah! i've found my old Doom copy.Just upgraded it to Brutal Doom mod with Metal music pack.Damn this game still kick ass!
I don't feel like that game aged. I was playing it a few weeks ago and it still feels fast and intense especially on the later levels on harder difficulties.
yeah totally ..i mean if you override the keyboard only controls with more modern one (keyboard + mouse) and add jump/duck into game mechanics and polish rendering a bit (all of that Brutal Doom mod is doing )you end up with still a fresh game.its still fun to play it and to me is still more interesting than most modern shooters.
