    that sounds awesome



    i'm so buying this game. Its been so long since a game was made for PC over consoles, and that was a great interview (they gave real details about multithreading, collision, etc)

    It sounds like Rebellion wants to make the best looking game for the franchise. Even if the game is crappy I'm going to pick this up just to support them.

    Of course they made the first one and we all know how that turned out. :rockout:

    this is the kinda game I'd buy at the store. sounds bad ass.

    now after dumping all this money into this machine, and about to dump more for dx11 card, maybe I'll have something to make it all worth it (gaming wise). 2010 sounds great for big pc's.. first this .. then BAD COMPANY MOTHER FU#@#$$ 2

    i also posted a video in the game section showing avp http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=109443

    This reminds me of when DOOM 3 was slated to release.. tons of hype over it. then when it did.. you had to have a beast of a PC to even squeeze out medium-high settings.

    But I guess technology has gotten more advanced since then..

    I can only hope you are right. However I hope you do not need a beast of a system due to poor coding.

    You said something about Rebellion did the 1st AVP..

    Do you mean the 1st AVP as in the Atari jaguar version?

    Bec I had that game and it was 8/10.. only thing that kept it from 9/10 was that horrendous controller with the 1234567890 huge keypad that needed templates to go over it and I didnt have internet to look up the buttons. Controls were shotty.. but then again.. if it had soemthing like a 360 contorller back then..then I guess it would have beena great gamme

    almost the same one as the jag version.. but with multi-p.

    I'd make a bet on this game being bad ass considering this interview you have posted and the history of rebellion. Seems like they know what theyre doing.

    Def has the graphic novel look. Look at the detail on the environment!

    I bet a still shot doesn't do it any justice though..

    gotta factor in the movements, shadows and lighting as you move around.

    Man, I am stoked about this game and I don't even have a DX11 card. I wonder how my system will run it.... I had countless hours playing the first and second one. Had my shiny new Voodoo 3 3000 PCI graphics card and I was ready to rock in full 3d.

    Looks pretty damn good. I just hope the actual game looks like that. Cause some of those screens look like how UT3 was supposed to look back in 07.
