Hopefully Crytek can remain one of the top 3 (along with ID and Unreal) in the technology department. More importantly for me though is I'm looking forward to seeing a unique and compelling game inside one of their engines. As good as Farcry is it is a bit lacking in the story department and some of the gameplay is a little been there done that. Maybe they will license out their tech to someone with a great game idea. At any rate I'm looking forward to whatever it is they do next.



Now speaking of Farcry I believe I have a save game to resume. I gotta beat this thing. Its getting tough! :)
