In this weekend roundup, we’ll settle the score with Crysis 2‘s auto-aiming problem, Dues Ex: Human Revolution development on the PS3 and how badass Battlefield 3 will be compared to those “other” shoooters.
Battlefield 3 and DICE Do Not Sleep
DICE’s Karl Magnus Troedsson recently warned other shooter series about sleeping on the job, he said “We believe that they are not innovating, that they are treading water.” But what can gamers expect from DICE? Nothing but the best.
“Every time that we launch a new game, we ask ourselves – what can we do better? What can we make faster? More fun? So, first and foremost we always compete with ourselves,” Troedsson continued.
He also reaffirmed Battlefield 3 is a true sequel to Battlefield 2.
Human Revolution Receives Unbiased Support
“Since the beginning, it was very important for us to not treat the PS3 version as a ‘port’ — you can trust us on that,” said Dues Ex producer David Anfossi on PlayStation Blog. The developer previously conducted ports that weren’t up to standard, their approach to the PS3 version of Human Revolution will be different. It will not be just a “port.”
Anyone who has played an FPS using the Dual Shock 3, knows the difference in the dead zone. The deadzone in the DS3 differs from the Xbox 360′s controllers, Eidos Montreal is ensuring that the differences will be tuned for each system.
“The analog sticks and buttons are different, and we tweaked them independently to ensure that everything is tight,” Anfossi said. “We get the best out of the controller based on its own strengths.”
Crysis 2 Loves Mouses
Community feedback on Crysis 2 for the PC were not pleased with the auto-aim function in game. Crytek has issued a patch that removes auto-aim completely. Reports are coming in of very happy PC gamers who have PCs that “Can do Crysis.” Other patched items include browsing servers and initiating matches, for a full list hit the link.
