Impressions: Crysis 2 gameplay world premiere in New York
I saw the world premiere of Crysis 2 in the city of the sequel’s setting, New York, earlier this week. Here’s what happened. I think.
Yerli’s fucking fit, innit.
Yeah, fucking say that to him.
You, Cevat, are a very attractive man.

Demartini: No one at Crytek is gonna to be putting the B-team on this game.
CryENGINE 3 dynamic time of day lighting deferred lighting colour grading blend shading procedural destruction integrated physics procedural deformation dynamic cover system hit reactions live creation on 360 and PS3 facial animation
Demartini: No one at Crytek is going to be putting the B-team on this game.
These guys are one of the dominant players in the shooter category and they’re taking this battle that’s going to be coming this Christmas very seriously and they’re going to be delivering the greatest product that’s going to come out this year.
Yerli: Crysis 2 is going to focus on three main areas highly interactive destructibility Nanosuit 2 catostrophic beauty New York.
Since then it has been my dream to bring that kind of gameplay from Crysis the Nanosuit and the console experience to the console market.
Nano the player will be more empowered than ever before they either want to hunt or become a tank Invicibility and max armour are the two main modes of the suit, players are able to customize and upgrade suit throughout game

ADAPT ENGAGE SURVIVE fucking chunked up metal and muscle Urban Jungle – jungle gameplay with verticality and the urban environment.
Yerli: New York is symbolic for the pride of mankind.
catastrophic beauty oh fucking come on, that’s a straight Gears rip yeah and the faces on paper thing’s pretty Gears too dunno man I reckon it’s more 911 than that
Yerli: No one can get the perfect 100 laughs.
Richard Morgan writing story The Steel Remains Altered Carbon talking about Farenheit 451.
The Crytek process lead writer sounds like a command post boiling storm of creativity refracting creativity of studio through story three things thay wanted to nail 1 Unpredictability 2 Location we lock in an emotional charge from the word go 3 Nanosuit Interested in the unpredictability of technology this needs to be dynamic in story terms as well
becomes a character in its own right it has an arc there’s a mystery at the heart of it as it has a narrative arc it has a destiny an end point sense of shit shit shit
I’ve got to get to grips with this desperation control the player comes to the game naked and uninformed
shit shit shit
