    "rest assure"?? it's "rest assured", embarrassing to have a mistake in it (in their message image on twitter)
    some people get it wrong as "be rest assured", but never seen this one before.

    Uhhh...what? I have the first two games on Steam (third one's EA-only, though considering I heard that one suffered from the Number Three Curse, all I'm missing out on is probably an expensive benchmark that isn't even used anymore that I'm aware of), and I remember being able to run the OG just fine...

    Crysis 3 is back on Steam as of a few weeks ago. I enjoyed all three single-player campaigns, and probably 2's multiplayer most even though I didn't stick with it all that long.

    i seriously doubt it, the original is currently on sale for 107 UYU on my region, little more than 2 American Dollars, i dont know how much it costs in your region, but i cant think it would be too much more, at most you can expect a discount code, like owners of aoe2 hd got a 25% discount code for the new remake, there is a legal version of crysis that runs: the gog release, i played it and worked perfectly on my modern windows 10 pc, honestly crysis remastered is a hard to fuck up game, remove securom, add new servers for online, add achievements, have whatever tweaks they used in gog for steam and origin and boom, you are done

    ... Am I the only one not getting what gamers miss? Character animations are perhaps a bit stiff, but that's just me splitting hairs. The rest just looks fine from what I can tell (in as far as anyone can tell anything with this mad editing mess).

    I think the problem is that time has caught up to the reputation. Crysis was this game that was supposed to bring your average pc crying to its knees, wishing it was a BETTER pc. However, yer average pc can run it now (I presume), so people want a remaster that blows their socks off.
    ... Because let's be honest : this isn't about gameplay but about bragging about fps'es (as in 'frames per second', not the genre) against your friends.

    Agreed, but in the case of sr3, you can't do minor graphics and performances enhancements to a game that doesn't exist on that platform.

    I fully agree with cashgrabs this gen in terms of supposed remasters (saints row 4 for one, darksiders 2, the list in huge I agree). But saints row 3 is a huge upgrade over last console releases. You can't knock a remaster for consoles just because the pc release from back in the day was already superior to the console releases at that time. PCs back then were lightyears ahead of home consoles towards the latter end of the life cycle.

    If this remaster doesn't crash my computer and set my GPU on fire the second I boot it up then I'm refunding it immediately.

    Sweet! It doesn't require Origin, right?

    They should have just called it a rerelease for current gen systems and PC's. The game is probably too old to just amp up the settings and adding new features probably would be less productive than just recreating the game. The only reason they are calling it a remaster is to sell it instead of updating the game

    Lately consoles have been getting remasters with enhancements that have NOT been brought to the PC version via official patches.

    Like Disgaea 1 Complete's HD character sprites.
    Batman Return to Arkham was ported over to Unreal Engine 4, though its changes are divisive. The PC version remains UE3.

    You don't need to have played the original to compare and contrast side-by-side screenshots. The graphics have been very slightly upgraded in some respects and slightly downgraded in others, resulting in a sidegrade at best overall. Which makes buying the game a second time completely unnecessary and completely unappealing for owners of the original.

    Unfortunately I can confirm it still opens Origin to launch and closes once you exit the game.

    That's the beauty of PC, almost no games released last gen are in need of a remaster/second purchase, and games that don't continue to receive official support still receive unofficial support from the modding community.

    I can't speak for Crysis 3, but Titanfall 2 on Steam installed a "lite" version of Origin that's basically the full version of it anyway :/ I'd be wary about assuming that any of their other games don't require Origin as well

    in a lot of cases the lighting is actually worse
    steam version runs fine for me though, it doesn't include the 64 bit binaries for some ungodly reason however
    it's EA, they'll make you buy it again, like they did for burnout paradise
    also it still runs fine for me,

    ...and? Not a fair comparison as Minecraft is trying to stick to their look. It really doesn't need fixed to be relevant in the modern world. Funny enough, neither does Crysis. People have become so accustomed to shitty God rays, over the top tesselation and motion blur. It's sad. Crysis still looks better than most games released today.

    People need to realize that the whole "can it run crysis" meme is just a meme. A lot of machines at the time couldn't run the game because it was a significant step in technology but most people caught up within the two years after it's release.

    I got my crysis from a certain well-exercised female and it looks like that on max settings. Definitely a hard pass for me on this remaster.

    The Remaster label has such a big expectation on it. I will buy it for Nintendo Switch in whatever state it comes ... as for 1 I have never played the title before. 2 it's simply a 15 year-ish (right?) old titel in itself. Either way looking forward to it!
