    Yes, people, it's not a crappy console port and it looks excellent! And "hard reset" is something every techy can relate to. ;)

    It's coming in September, although I can't find it on preorder on Steam.

    Also, it's not clear if those are DX11 graphics or not.

    EDIT

    Now available for prepurchase on Steam.

    Nice find, happita. :)

    It looks like an awesome sci-fi shooter. The graphics look like the engine is Unreal Engine 3.

    It looks kinda boring... It looks like every single bargain bin shooter. It's a huge deal when it comes out, doesn't live up to anyone's expectations then 2 weeks later no one is playing it and it is then $15

    Any game that is created without thinking about consoles and its public is more than welcome. I hope this is a case of it.

    My magic 8-ball says it's OpenGL, but I'm not sure.

    It's good to see more games that don't look exactly like Call of Duty. I like it.

    Funny , i just bought about 3 weeks ago the Blade Runner 5 disc Ultimate Collector's Edition for $29.xx , so happy! finaly got the original 1982 movie with the voice over on DVD which i like best...

    Anyhow i can't wait for this game to come out , any game made for PC only will work better & most likely looks much much better then console crap...:rolleyes:

    Looks good. Kinda has a bioshock feel to it if you ask me.

    Was the plot talked about in the article?

    I'm guessing a sentient robot/computer gone rogue is the final boss, and it needs a hard reset. :laugh:

    I've somehow never sat down and actually watched this movie from start to finish.

    Yep. And nothing performs a hard reset like a ton of munitions.

    Looks pretty good. I'd love to support a PC exclusive if it's any good in terms of offering more than consoles ever can. Ie RPG elements with immersive world and lots of interactivity (which doesn't include eating chocolate bars and chips the same moment you pick it up). Deus Ex 1 and System Shock 2 level of immersion...

    Interesting that Wikipedia says this game will have no multiplayer. Could use a nice PC only single player game.

    Where does it say this game engine is built using OpenGL? That'd be great if it is, because then a MacOSX/Linux port would be considerably more feasible.

    I'm now reading that this will be a Quake/Doom style game. What's the point of PC exclusive other than graphics in such case? I want immersion that only keyboard and mouse together can bring it to us. That is, complex interaction with environment, advanced inventory, manipulation of items, multiple ammo types, multiple paths to progress through game etc. Stuff that just can't be done on consoles using gamepad with its analog sticks.

    Nice find. :toast: I like the physics in the game and they focus on a sign with an animated butt at around 5:15 into the video. :laugh:

    Those guys are soo sarcastic! They ripped Duke Nukem Forever a new one when they reviewed it, hehe. Although I didn't agree with them, that review was very entertaining. I must bookmark their site.

    It could be. Near the end, at around 17 or 18 minutes they say it's running on a GTX 260.

    the name of the developer is "Flying Wild Hog" and this is their first game. I really don't think they had much choice but to develop for the PC platform as it is cheaper for a start-up company.

    I hope it's gonna be released on Steam. Then we won't have to put up with any ridiculous DRM, just Steam.
