quake engine for new fallout/elder scrolls?
Maybe they'll use one of the quake engines for the new elder scrolls/fallout games? Maybe then they would be so buggy...
Id Software, the famed independent game developer behind Doom and Quake, has been sold to ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks. The acquisition marks the end of id's existence as one of the game industry's few remaining large, successful indie dev houses. Both companies, however, promise to keep the status …
Maybe the guys at id have realised that there's only so many times you can release the SAME GAME with a different engine before people get wise to it.
I remember talking to one of the nVidia engineers who were helping the guys at id to get Carmack's normal mapping working before E3 in 2003 and the decided to pull the demo because he (Carmack) couldn't get it to work fast enough. Some less that complementary things were being said about the so called "great man" in that discussion, as I remember.
I also remember the public dissing he gave multi-core processor technologies when the Cell processor was announced, and guess who was on the 360 design advisory board. That's right, Carmack....and oh look, the xbox 360 has multiple processor cores which are completely crippled.
Yay...all hail John Carmack...a dinosaur from a soon to be extinct age.
Ahh Quake. I nearly failed my degree because of Quake.
Quake2 a little wobbly
And now QuakeLive. A full version of Quake3 available online for free. Fantastic
Suck on this.... because that is what you will get if you turn up to QuakeLive.
Oh yes there was a story attached to this: Anything which make id more secure: Good! Interfere: BAD.
Can't agree. Whilst some people slate them for dumbing down between Morrowind and Oblivion, it was generally to create a better game. The interface is vastly improved, travelling is much easier, there's much more co-operation from NPCs, the quests are genuinely inventive and experimental and I can see where they're going with the scaling combat even if I personally think it's a bad idea.
That's even before you start on using horses and the major graphical upgrades.
Not even started Fallout 3 yet. Have to finish Oblivion and Fallout 1/2 first (yes, I don't play games all the time. Oblivion to me is ultra modern.).
