    Evil Avatar is linking to a somewhat low-res version of the Unreal Engine 3 tech demo (hosted by gamingbolt) as shown at GDC. Beware the Brumak!

    Huh. Looks like UE3 is finally producing visuals comparable to Crytek circa 2007. Much as I love Unreal, other companies are giving the engine a healthy run for its money, and other company's games are delivering much higher quality experiences, in my opinion.

    That video has absolutely nothing to do with GDC and isn't a tech demo. It's a UDK video from back in November.

    Cryengine mostly seems to be good for huge ass open areas with vegetation on top.

    We should probably point out that UE3's tech demos also actually run with a respectable framerate on modern hardware, whereas CryEngine's absolutely did not, and still don't.

    There must be something pretty decent about the Unreal Engine cause everyone's using it.

    I think that says it all!

    Shoulda researched that one a bit. I went with the source and hadn't seen it. Still looking for a decent version of the tech demo they showed at GDC if anyone has seen one.
