EA: SimCity sales 'solid,' Crysis and Dead Space were not

Electronic Arts held an investors' call today, and one of the talking points was the performance of some of its biggest properties. Unfortunately, some of the information that was divulged was sort of disheartening. EA appear...

Crytek says graphics are 60% of a game experience

It should hardly surprise anyone that Crytek places heavy emphasis on graphics, given its games are designed to be visual showcases. CEO Cevat Yerli, however, seems to believe they are the most important thing, valuing them a...

Seven of the toughest games to run on PC photo
Seven of the toughest games to run on PC
by Brett Makedonski

The Crysis series is well-known in the PC community as being the benchmark of sorts for games that require a high-end computer to run. It began in 2007 with the release of the first Crysis. It's undeniable that the game had stunningly beautiful graphics -- that is, if you actually had a machine capable of running it. Few people did. Ever since, Crysis has been more or less synonymous with "you better have a supercomputer if you want this to look right."

To coincide with this week's Crysis 3 launch, let's look back and give homage to some of the games that aren't named Crysis that undoubtedly live up to this standard.

Tweak Crysis 3 with these console commands

Electronic Arts has passed along a list of console commands for Crysis 3 to Game Front, which is a sentence I didn't think I'd be able to write today. My first thought was that these would mostly pertain to graphical options ...

Pitting Crysis 3 against the GeForce GTX Titan  photo
Pitting Crysis 3 against the GeForce GTX Titan
by Jim Sterling

Today, hardware reviewers were able to lift the lid on NVIDIA's latest beast, the GeForce GTX Titan. Boasting a GK110 chip with 2688 CUDA cores and loads of other stuff I barely understand, NVIDIA claims that when you rock three of these things in SLI, you get the world's first gaming super computer. 

So far, so prideful. 

With a trio of these behemoths, my job was simple. I'm a software guy -- I make other people do my hardware stuff, and then play I games. Crysis 3 is one such game, and with Crytek suggesting next generation consoles won't touch what its latest first-person shooter in the graphics department, there's no better test of the Titan's mettle.
