- While driving the boat with machinegun attached, have someone jump in from above and enter the boat while in the air, their hands will be attached to the gun, but from the shoulder all the way to the hand, the arms with flap around in a very scary manner.

I think this one is my fave, lol

Crysis is going to be a freakin sweet game for sure. They just need to get these bugs worked out and polish the hell out of it. It is possible to run the Beta at a playable framerate on my 7600GT but it's still jittery when you get close to other players.

Holy crap, downloading now.

I guess I can say it, I'm reviewing a 8600GT and let me tell you what. What a difference the 8600GT is from my 7600GT! I can play the Beta on Medium-High Settings at 50 FPS!!! Looks so much better now.

1024x768 right now, I haven't really had a chance to really sit down and fool around with the settings. Give me a few and I'll up the res some.

EDIT - Also too, I'm trying to download the new client so we'll see how that goes.

Maybe its me but the mp isnt my cup of tea, played for maybe 15 min but thats it. Think i'll wait for the sp demo.
The camera also has no movement when walking or running, it feels pretty wierd.
I can only muster 30fps avg at 1680x1050 with the comp in my specs on med settings.
