Crysis 3 has been in development for the last 14 months and is set to be "one of the most ambitious games that Crytek has ever done," according to Crytek's Director of Creative Development, Rasmus Hoejengaard. He went on to even describe the latest entry as "the pinnacle of the Crysis franchise." That's a pretty big claim, but it's hard to see Rasmus' big picture as our time with the game was extremely short. Still, Crytek did show off some cool new features that has me interested in the new direction Crysis is heading. (Hamza Aziz)
Max Payne 3 will support a huge range of components and specs. It requires a respectable minimum of an Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ, 2 GB of RAM, an NVIDIA 8600 (or Radeon HD 3400), and 35 GB of hard drive space. Rockstar also announced all the digital pre-orders for Steam, GameStop Impulse, Amazon Game Downloads, Gamesplanet, Gamesload, and Gamersgate. (Brett Zeidler)
Two of the better games on Nintendo's downloadable service are about to become even more awesome, according to fresh tidbits straight from Nintendo Power. Cave Story is getting yet another re-release (how many does that make now?), and it will seemingly replace the DSiWare version currently available. Next up is a Mighty Switch Force update that will improve the game's 3D effect, insert a "retry" option into the pause menu, and add five brand new levels. (Tony Ponce)
Last I checked the teaser site for the next installment of Call of Duty, there wasn't a whole lot going on. We know the game's big reveal is set for May 1, though that kind of check-back-later information isn't exactly engaging. Give me solid details! (Jordan Devore)
