GreenAdder: There are new engines coming out? See, guys? I told you they should have waited to release "Duke Nukem Forever." It could have been so much better if they would have just waited for the new technology.
ekdikeo4: On the topic of licensing .. Anyone can pick up Unreal (3) UDK, and make a game with it. If you want to go and sell it, the first 50K of revenue will cost you $99 to Epic, and everything after that is 25%. If you don't find that acceptable, you can always email Epic and try to arrange something different.Crytek? No one knows. The only people who do know the licensing are people who've signed NDA on it already. They won't even talk to you about licensing until you sign the NDA.UDK currently produces games for PC, Mac, and iOS. Android versions of some Unreal games are also showing up. CryEngine is PC only, as far as I'm aware. Platform support for Unreal 4 hasn't really been talked about, but I'd be surprised if it doesn't at least include PC/Mac, and add mobiles as the mobiles begin to catch up in capabilities, but who knows, maybe it'll have Android and iOS as soon as it's out the doors. Maybe not.
ModernLuddite: I still thought the demo of Crysis 3 was really boring.//farkING MAKE FUN GAMES.///MOTHERfarkER.
geek_mars: Chris Roberts' new game will use the Cry3 engine. There are some videos of actual gameplay on the website. It looks pretty sweet.http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/
BumpInTheNight: Meanwhile in Gamebryo...[i.imgur.com image 850x531]
realmolo: I don't give a shiat about the engine, or even the quality of the graphics in general. Everything looks good these days.Just give me a game that is:a)Funb)not another goddamn FPS
Seth'n'Spectrum: BumpInTheNight: Meanwhile in Gamebryo...[i.imgur.com image 850x531]Does Bethesda Game Studios use Gamebryo because:a) It's cheap (or is owned by them or Bethsoft)?b) Sunk costs/habit?c) It's better optimized for their kind of games?I'm genuinely curious if anyone knows. I'm a huge fan of their work, but can willingly admit it's got serious issues.
LazarusLong42: Yes, but will either of them run on anyone's computer?/Seriously, I'm the first to make the Crysis joke?
Reverend Monkeypants: Surely the next Source engine will kill these entirely.Right?mmmmaybe?

I'm a huge fan of their work, but can willingly admit it's got serious issues.I seem to remember hearing its not originally their own engine but at this point they've customized their own instance of it so much throughout the series of Elder Scrolls and FO3 that at this point I think its all the company knows how to work with :P Its got lots of amusing glitches indeed but damn if they don't do some amazing things with it too.
neuroflare: Skyrim wasn't made with Gamebryo, at least according the wikipedia article
BumpInTheNight: neuroflare: Skyrim wasn't made with Gamebryo, at least according the wikipedia articleThat was the original statement from Bethesda but frankly if it talks like a duck and looks like a duck, its the Gamebryo engine with even more modifications piled on. Its modded the same way, the basic memory allocations and world organizational objects are built the same, its Gamebryo. Nothing wrong with that I think the engine is pretty flexible, just while they never came out and recanted its pretty obvious from an external point of view its the same engine just with more bells, whistles and bugs. :)
neuroflare: The first time I got near a mammoth in Skyrim it shot straight up in the air like 100 ft, then hit the ground just fell over. I laughed my ass off. At least I got the tusk I was going to need without any effort.
