Cry Engine 2

Postby Pleathe5th » Mon Apr 07, 2008 3:28 pm

Have you guys seen Cry Engine 2?

I guess it is the new graphics system they are planning on using in upcoming video games.

I can find it for some reason but i found a video where they used it to re create a commercial, and played there recreation next to the real life version of it.

I'm going to see if i can't find it, because it is really cool

Crazy. I couldn't tell which was real and which was the CryEngine in a lot of them. Does this mean I'll have to talk my wife into letting me upgrade my computer again? UGH....

Heh, yeah i would say so, but i dont think it is going to be a very cheap process, lol. I guess there is a game out now that runs a similar system, and in order to run it on it's highest graphic setting you need several top of the line graphic cards, and you need to link two top of the line computers together. I'm not much of a computer guy so i could not tell you the exact names or anything, but from what i can gather ... it's a lot of money, lol.

Well that's actually good. Game producers won't start using engines that consumers can't afford, at least just yet.

Whats up with the bouncing balls, that was just lame. I was expecting something a little more exotic! Still nice though. ;-D

That ad was for a Bravia television.

Those were all actually real balls, they dumped thousands of them down a street...

It was supposed to show clarity or something, I forget. I'm assuming the game engine used it to show that it has alot of detail.

I thought maybe it was a romance novel generator.

But yeah, it would have been nice to see atleast a car explode.

Was it just me or did the "balls" not look realistic? They didn't even look round in a lot of the shots and they had odd shapes coming off of them. :-? :-? The people and cars seemed to be good, but I would have much rather seen a street scene with people walking around or a race scene or something.
