RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS THREAD!, just a dumping ground

Well, well, they sure have been shopping left and right. Now the Witchboy works for them, too. :/


You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

For the period before they announced DSIII I actually was kind of expecting ZeniMax to buy Obsidian too.

Then again, Arkane have a lot of affinity with Bethesda, so I guess that it's a good match.

 

It'll come.

Their tech has always been more interesting than the IPs.

 

We've needed a decent multiplatform licensable engine for a while now. UE3 sucks and Source isn't doing so well on other platforms.

Sorry, UE3 sucks if you use the default stuff and don't put time/money into the assets.

 

I miss the simpler times of Carmack's Reverse.

Explain "default stuff". Mass Effect 2 looked great and ran smooth.

 

After it had been extensively retooled by Bio... ME1 is more of an actual UE game...

 

Source might be sharpening their crossplatform support, now that Gabe swallowed the humble PS3 pie...

Still, I'd say it's a bit excessive to say that UE3 sucks.

It's not as good as its widespread use seems to hint (from a purely visual standpoint, I don't know if it's easier to work with it than with other engines), but it still looks pretty good.

Just an older version of UE3.

 

ME2 uses UE3.5

By no means does it look bad, I'm just irked by the distinctive look in every other game. That's why more licensable engines is a nice thing.

 

I wonder how long will Source 2, they can't keep patching it forever...

I'd say all of UE3 games have a distinct plastic-y look.

Borderlands says hello.

So guys, do you think Bioshock Infinity will use UE3?

 

Wasn't it supposed to be a new IP? Bioshock Infinity just doesn't roll off the tongue, anyway.

I could imagine that it was initiated as an original IP, but 2K wanted to squeeze out the Bioshock license so they shoe-horned it into it.
