    Site Update

    16 March 2013


    In a frustrating turn of events, the 17-page Crysis 3 Tweak Guide I finished and formatted, ready for immediate release on the 4th of March, has now been delayed for almost two weeks, with no indication as to when it will actually be published. The guide contents were cleared over a week ago, so the delay is not due to any content issues. We had agreed to new publication arrangements which would supposedly reduce the delays, but that's obviously not been the case. As a result, I've decided to stop writing guides for Nvidia. The game guides will now go on hiatus until such time as a new sponsor is found that will let me publish the material in a timely manner.


    Update: For those wondering about the Far Cry 3 Tweak Guide, it disappeared into the ether. Basically, Nvidia submitted it to the developer for final approval, and given it was an AMD-sponsored game, the developer simply withheld their approval.
