Crysis 3

Crysis 3 flexes its PC specs

Minimum, recommended, and high end requirements revealed

Crytek has revealed the minimum, recommended, and swanky deluxe PC requirements for Crysis 3. The good news is, you won't need to sell a kidney to get it to run at its most basic. The bad news is, nobody ever wants just basic, so prepare your damnable wallet. 

Available as both a regular edition for $59.99 and a digital deluxe edition for $79.99, Crysis 3 is slated for a February 2013 release and can be bought through Origin, because EA is still pushing that thing. 

You can check out the PC specs below, at any rate. I'm quite looking forward to giving this one a go, since I really enjoyed Crysis 2 in spite of my distaste for the original game. Hopefully this continues what the sequel started -- being good!

  • MINIMUM SYSTEM OPERATING REQUIREMENTS FOR PC:
    • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
    • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM
    • Dual core CPU
    • 2GB Memory (3GB on Vista)
    • Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):
    – Nvidia GTS 450

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.
