The original Crysis was one of the most ambitious shooters to ever hit the PC, however its crushing system requirements limited the audience to a small subset of enthusiasts. To make matters worse, even they couldn’t max it out. The hardware requirements improved substantially with the stand alone expansion Warhead, and requirements were even further clawed back in the full out sequel. Some hardcore PC gamers never forgave the company for crippling the sequel so it was compatible with consoles, but hey, you can’t please everyone. If you count yourself among those offended by Crysis 2 then you’re in luck. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli promises to melt your PC hardware with their next installment of the series.
Well this stinks. Earlier this week it was being reported that Lord British himself (aka Richard Garriott) was having "discussions at very high levels with Electronics Arts" about access to the Ultima property. That tidbit popped up on Eurogamer, and if you're an Ultima fan, the thought of Garriott taking the reigns of Ultima Online would have been a sweet holiday surprise. The only problem is, no such discussions took place, at least not recently.
