PC Games / Unreal Engine 3
« on: March 16, 2005, 08:12:12 pm »
I was watching some videos and checking out some screenshots of the new Unreal Engine today...and I know everybody is really freaking out about this engine and saying its the Source-killer or Doom 3 killer or Far Cry killer or some stupid thing...but I really have to say that their tech demos and screenshots haven't impressed me. At all. Am I the only one that thinks that it has a nice high level of detail but overall its not anything revolutionary?

I've gotta admit, those screens for the new Elder Scrolls look absolutely amazing. If the X-Box Next or whatever its called can handle those kinds of graphics then I can't see how Playstation 3 can compete.  :-\

I'm really looking forward to it too. I preordered it from Gamestop along with Untold Legends, and the manager kept pestering me to come to this midnight opening to get it but I'm not sure if I'm quite that excited about it.  :P

Honestly though, ignoring the different demographics the devices are aimed at, do you think the PSP or the DS is going to dominate the portable market in the upcoming months? PSP is coming in with 24 launch titles and a bevy of titles confirmed for release a bit later, but then again the meat of the DS' confirmed games are coming out at the same time, including Animal Crossing and Advance Wars DS.

As for myself I think the PSP is a step above and beyond the DS, if only because its a portable media player. They said the battery runs down pretty fast, but I'm gonna say that the new battery Sony is proposing will solve some of those problems (30% more game time or some such).

From what I've heard it is going to be one player. It just populates your single player universe with civilizations and creatures created by other players from the central hub. I sure hope its going to be that way anyways. Way too easy for some people to get to UFO level and just search out and blast little new civilizations.

Also...I know the game seems relatively complete...and I desperately want it to be released this year, but is that realistic? Honestly?  :P I want reassurance about how polished and complete the game looks.
