    seen this when it was first released last summer, looks unbelievable, their engine is going to be one pricy piece of middleware!

    Yeah been following these guys for a while now, looks like the only engine that can possibly match and possibly even out do unreal 3.0 in terms of its stunning use of technology

    yea i agree. in the meantime, Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion (FPS RPG), is out in the next month. It also looks amazing, and a number of journalists have done playtests and are shouting its praises.

    I saw it running real time at GDC, it was a loop and nothing that we haven’t seen before in video format, but seeing it live was really impressive.

    Did look impressive, but the background also faded to black very quickly. Plus, they were all the same model from the looks of it, so lot of memory saved there.
