It's been a lackluster year so far for gaming and I for one can't wait for the next few months. Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect 2, Left for Dead 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and more. There are a LOT of good games coming out. Why does it seem to always be feast or famine in gaming? Oh well, I'm not going to complain. I'm just going to be glad to be a gamer right now and beef up my carpal tunnel coverage! ;)

P.S. Apparently there was some discussion about it running on Win 64 bit? Played the first one through 4 times on Vista 64bit with nary a hitch.

Defintely gonna pick it up but I'm not gonna preorder.  People shouldn't be punished for not preordering.  Give me the entire game.

yea about Crysis, I've run-tested both 32bit and 64bit.

 What I found is that if i run the 64bit, the loading time are much faster and the FPS improved drastically ! The only thing is that Punkbuster doesn't seem to work on 64bit version so I play 64bit for single player and 32bit for multiplayer.

Punkbuster has been updated for Windows 7 and 64 bit platforms.  You have to download the PBSetup.exe from evenbalance.com and update it manually.  I've used Punkbuster on Windows 7 64 bit for months now with zero issues.

they have it so it plays on 64 bit operating systems. The original game is 32 bit only unless they come out with a patch.

Aside from Crysis, every game (and most apps) on the market and coming to market are still 32 bit only with no 64 bit executable, and have no problems running on 64 bit Vista and 7. And it's probably not going to change until people stop loving XP.

Part of the whole Games for Windows certification includes running on 64 bit Windows, regardless of whether or not the game itself is 64 bit.

Played it 3 times through on Vista 64. No problems.

The first one plays perfectly fine on Windows 7 64 bit.
