"[Unreal] allowed us to have this kind of odd shooter with big exploration. "Oh look at this amazing vista!" You've never walked out in the open before, and now you can look off into the distance and see birds flying. So obviously if we did something like that again, we'd want it to have that same kind of feeling."

I remember the Unreal box had all these notices about the graphical clout the game was throwing, and then you flip the box over, and there were these outstanding looking screen captures, and your eye skips the blurb, straight to the specification tab. I just thought when I was in the shop - Will my machine be able to run this?! It turned out in the end, not quite, actually, because I really didn't have sufficient RAM to boost my experience of the game, beyond that of a woeful, jarring slideshow. :(
If they want to post screens that give that wow effect, and they want to create that sort of excitement before they'll release a new Unreal, I think they might have their work cut out for them.

I also believe though, that if they start from "what is unreal", and work from that point, they're likely to have best chance of reaching a lofty goal like that. The less influence showing through from other games, the better. I think that if Epic were to create Unreal from an insular blueprint. They disregarded all since. That, I feel would give them the best chance of succeeding.

Epic,
You forgot what that made you epic. It was pc and unreal. And now you don't even
bother to make pc games. Pc gaming isn't dying, you fool. Blizzard is best developer, publisher. They still have faith in pc gaming and they get rewarded with huge sales of their games.
that's all

    thpcplayer is onto something. PC game sales can slump for Epic as a kind of self fulfilling prophecy when you don't focus on the platform. Then it looks as if the consoles sell much better but that's because of design decisions made ahead of time which lessen the PC game and make it lose its distinctiveness amongst a crowd of a more younger audience's FPS. The PC platform still has strengths that make it stand above the consoles.

      I bought UT3 for PC when it was released, I have a rig that can more then supports it. This game sucks a.., I sold my copy on ebay for about $10 less then what I paid for it and felt lucky to get that.
      Face it UT3 flopped and is by far one of the worst FPS games ever released.
      I have been a loyal UT fan since day one and I have loved the series but this was a big disappointment.
      What made me mad was the lies and disrespect they have shown there customers and supporters.

      This Titanic pack is a way for them to try and make up there losses and as far as I am concerned they can take it a shove it.
      I just purchased F.E.A.R 2 and yes it did have some problems but this game signal or MP is by far much better then UT3.
      My advise to anyone looking to purchase UT3 because of there Epic's Deming attempt to apologize with this so called "Titan Pack" forget it.
