Felt this forum could use one of these...

I will start this off with stuff fresh out of GDC for a game none of you have ever heard of, but probably should, Project Offset(PC Only Game):



Behind-The-Scenes Tech Demos

http://software.intel.com/en-us/videos/meteor-behind-the-scenes/
http://software.intel.com/en-us/videos/destruction/
http://software.intel.com/en-us/videos/blockout-elevator/
http://software.intel.com/en-us/videos/wind-demo/

Intel owns Offset Software and these tech demos are running on Intel's new GPU, Larrabee. Extremely impressive stuff to say the least.

Also, for anyone into modding, here is them making a hut:



Meanwhile.... Crytek was showing off CryENGINE 3.0 for consoles:


And Infinity Ward announced Modern Warfare 2:

My laptop can run Crysis on medium settings. It's a year and a half old Very Happy. It sounds like a jet engine when it does it though...

Crysis is a pretty beastly game...
Here are some Community Screenshots of Custom Configs:




AND!!!!
The one that is currently my Desktop Background:

It is OK if your brain is currently on the ground in the form of a pile of gooey mush. That is a normal reaction.


Just imagine, because Project Offset looks to be even more beastly than Crysis is...

Crysis had great gameplay. Don't get into this argument with me either...
Because I will give you a freaking insane rundown of why it was amazing, delving into level design, pacing, encounter spacing, art design, and gunplay.... That is an argument you will lose.

You may not like Crysis for whatever reason, but trust me, the gameplay is NOT terrible.

I think you'll agree with me when I say that the dialogue was horrible in Crysis. Also, Crysis Warhead made some substantial improvements to just about anything that was wrong with the first game.

Aha! I just realized why all these pictures look weird to me: the anti-aliasing is turned up to its highest setting (no "jagged" lines).

And as far as Project Offset goes, I sure hope its engine is a bit less demanding to run than the Cryengine...
