What kind of settings do you use when playing Crysis, Godless? That's a 'puter killer!

Quality: Very High
Resolution: 1920x1080
Anti-Aliasing: 4x
V-Sync: On

I still get low frame rate in specific areas, but overall my computer runs it pretty well. I actually have an ATI card, the Radeon 4870 X2, whereas Crysis is a game built for NVidia cards.

Haha I was going to select "Over 40 hours a week. If it were my job, I'd be getting benefits." in the poll. But I can't because it is my job! I just finished working on the Bourne Conspiracy and before that Darkwatch.

When it does happen, though, I'm serious. How serious? I play Starcraft. Against South Koreans. And I win quite often. I came up with a strategy about 10 years ago called the "scout rush", which people tend to have a lot of trouble with. I also have a knack for cannons.
Hot damn, that is SERIOUSLY impressive! :eek2:

I love Dead Space. I follow the art director on Twitter.  :D Since I'll (hopefully) be starting a Ph.D based around video games, I'm trying to get to know some of the people in the biz.

I've worked as a video games programmer since 98. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Actually, I've always been curious (I know, right?) about how one breaks into the business. I'm crap at design--photography is my area--and I can't program, but I've always wondered who does the story writing and scenario design. Thoughts?

Is Dead Space that good? When we rented RE5 my little brother also rented Dead Space (He plays it), but I haven't played it yet.
