    I noticed over at Joystiq that they've highlighted a programmer job opening posted at Epic Games. In the job description (below) they suggest that the person hired will be working on Gears 3 as well as a new unnamed IP. Could it be a game in the universe featured in the "Samaritan" Unreal Engine trailer featured previously?

    Epic hiring for a new Internet PROTOCOL? Okay.

    EDIT: No seriously what does IP stand for? I know it's the new talk for a title, but what does it stand for? Seriously I always found that retarded, since it sounds like Internet Protocol.

    It's Intellectual Property.

    Oh yeah that. Hard to remember because it's so business sounding. Seriously calling game title intellectual property? Hello? :lol:

    Everyone go back calling it actual names, like it used to in 90s and beginning of 2000s, seriously. Can we stop ruining this with the SUIT talk?

    Precisely. Going with the spirit of time is usually good -- but if this involves us becoming "lawyerized", I'd say: fudge it.

    Whatever it may be better be good and not some Gears of War or Modern Warfare clone. At least they aren't just pushing out another Unreal Tournament game.

    You bloody heretic. We could use a new Unreal Tournament... or a new Unreal, by that matter.

    Epic never makes proper clones but recently they're recycling unused Unreal ideas. Now with that Samaritan character who turns into a robot or whatever the hell it is, the dropped Unreal concept of morphing yourself into monsters is coming into my mind.

    Yes. And Unreal DM also had a guy smoking a cigar.

    Translated to English : Our recent dodgy Pc ports didn't do well and our last console release was a flop. In other news Epic starts to suck up to bit torrent wielding PC pirates.
