I got the Crysis 1 remaster awhile back. It’s frame rate is brutally erratic. I bought it because it had Crysis 2’s controller options which are far superior to the original’s. I tried the original PC version various times but mouse and keyboard is awful with how it handled suit power switching. Plus, vsync is a mess and I can never not have screen tearing. I finally beat it via the Xbox 360 version and I was underwhelmed. I guess I thought a far prettier PC version would change my mind years later, but no. It really is just an eye candy tech demo and probably should just be remembered for the whole “Can it play Crysis” moniker it carried.spacehamster wrote: ↑Sat Oct 23, 2021 1:24 am I'm trying to motivate myself to play through the Crysis remaster, but it's... kinda boring? I played one of the console versions of the original back in the day, so I know it gets more interesting towards the end, but this endless slog through trees and bushes and "Korean" soldiers speaking English for no reason except to let you know whether you're still in stealth is just... ugh. It also doesn't run that well, more like they slapped on ray tracing, and now it's too demanding again.
I'm actually a fan of the series, but I got into it with Crysis 2, so the supposed "sandbox" aspects of the first game are a bit lost on me. I dunno.
I think you can change the enemy language in settings, though.
I tried Super Metriod along with some other games and I’ve lost interest in all of them. I get into these video game funks from time to time. Usually between seasons (Summer to Autumn, in this case). No idea why, and I haven’t had it in a few years, but this one seems extra bad. I just need something random to snap me out of it and then I can consider Metriod once again.
