With Cryengine 3 released now with amazing features evident such as Simultaneous WYSIWYP on all Platforms, can we expect a saturation of games soon?
Hard to tell now considering there hasn't been a single game to launch on it yet...
An engin cannot lead to over satuation of games. Shovel ware does that. That is a prolems caused by developers who are just trying to make a quick buck off of mini games. I don't see how that relates to CryE3.
Not to mention, if we're going off ease of acquisition then it seems like the release of the UDK would be a bigger cause for concern. But then again, if we're making the claim that high quality tools/engine being made more widely available to developers is a bad thing, then we might as well boycott indie devs.
it seems hundreds of games come out every year, but only about 10 of them are played.
as long as they're not all "shootan" games, more power to anyone who uses it.
How about WAY too early to tell?
The unreal is pure trash in the ass. All because a lot of people use it don't mean its good.
B.S it is, it's one of the best engines around, you just haven't seen what it can do on PC. Even ME2 on pc is not as good as UT3 graphically, the games that don't look good on it are a result of other programmers not making use of it or making sloppy games eg. ME1 O.T From the article; Their complaint is that an easy to use multiplat engine has finally been created, and so now they complain that we might get a lot of games using CE3....lol I'll be cheering if there is a bunch of CE3 games. People seem to forget that Mirrors Edge and Arkham Asylum were using UT3, as well as ME2, all have very different art styles, an engine is only as limited as it's users, if the devs can't get great and varied games out of CE3 they need to call it a day
IDC what it can do on the pc honestly I really don't. I'm a console gamer not a pc gamer and I believe I make it very clear in all my previous post. I'm not gonna bash PC gaming thats not what I do but I will bash this garbage engine. And I already know all the disagrees I got are from PC fanboys not that I care. One of the best engine HA! That was a GOOD LOL!
Colonel Snake, Ignorance and plugged ears doesn't make a valid argument. dchalfont's argument is sound, the engine does not make the game it also doesn't mean that a game will look similar to another just because the same engine is used. UE3 is capable of a lot. You really have to turn up the ignorance to 11 if you're going to shun a game because of the engine it runs on...must be a console mentality. Who could love an engine that consistently has games running at 720P on a console? You like sub hd right?
@dchalfont Don't mind mr colonel, he's a fanboy and rarely knows what he himself is talking about. Games like Gears, Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge, Batman:AA, & Borderlands make his argument unfounded even on consoles. PC games, down to the iPhone using it shows just how versatile and scalable Unreal Engine 3 really is. on topic/ Let's reserve judgement till we see some games using CE3, shall we? And like dchalfont said, it's up to the developers...
Don't developers that license these engines usually get the source code, so they can tweak and modify them to be literally anything?
Fanboy because I dont like that engine lmfao you all sound so dumb its not even funny. Seriously if your gonna call me a fanboy dumbass tell me wtf im a fanboy of. OH yea I forgot your stupid ass can't. Nothing in my post says im a fanboy you like the other idiots just throw it out there without any evidence of it. @likedamaster Next time retard find what I post to make me a fanboy. @Ravenor OH yes my subhd gaming yes your the ignorant one bashing console games thinking your better with your pc. Dude I have a pc and if i wanted to I could game on it. I choose not to because I prefer the console. Your dumbass level is at a all time high of a million. And you say console fanboys is the worse when clearly evidence show 2 of you idiots who replied are the fanboys. But don't worry your idiot pc fanboys will disagree with me like you little kids can do. Oh yea i forgot the PC mentality of I'm better then all console gamers. I use my Pc for simply this the internet and doing my college assignments and thats its I have no other use for it. Oh yes I forgot im a console gamer We are all ignorant because we choose not to play pc with your perfect graphics and w.e else crap you wanna spew and even so end of the day nobody cares. Future response to any idiots wanna throw the fanboy crap out there. When you accuse someone of being a fanboy please let it be known what they are being a fanboy of. For the people who isn't blind you can clearly see I did not bash the PC in any of my previous post but you got 2 Pc fanboys who bashed consoles and yet IM THE FANBOY lmao. Do we not see the irony in this ?
Fair enough colonel, you're not a fanboy, you're just ignorant (note: Im not using ignorant to mean stupid). Their are tons of great looking games for console on the unreal engine. Additionally, if you've worked with it and other comparable environments you would know theres a reason tons of people are using it. Some of the best games this generation run on it because its extremely versatile and comes with an amazing set of tools. Im not saying it doesn't have its faults, but I think you're boiling everything down to graphics when theres a ton more that goes into an engine than that.
There is a grain of truth in Colonel Killzone's ignorance. While the average gaming PC can chew through most UE 3 games at over 100 FPS, consoles generally have a poor history with it. Particularly the PS 3. "There's a ton of great looking games for console on the Unreal engine" Yeah, like what? Gears of War, Mass Effect 2 and Batman? 'Cause every other UE 3 engine games I know are generic looking turd with slow loading textures. I'm pretty sure that for every single good looking EU 3 engine game you can name I can name at least 2 more bad ones.
Unreal Engine 3 is popular because it's easy to work with and has lots of support, so if you have a problem you can find a solution by asking the community/other developers. The tools are also not bad.
I honestly don't care what engine a game is running on, as long as I'm having fun and its bad ass I'm good to go.
When i saw the Killzone 3 screenshot..............no I think the Cryengine will use some tricks like pre render in the background. LOL, some fellow give me a disagree without any arguments. Typical stealth clikers.
Maybe on console's you'll get painted on shadows, but your used to that so it's not big deal. "Facts are that multi engine cannot compare with first exclusive engine. " That too is a console phenomenon, on PC the multiplats scale up and there is not necessarily any reason why a multiplat cannot look as good or better than a PC exclusive. Fallout 3 on PC looks as good as any PC exclusive RPG i've ever played, and Farcry 2 is the second best looking PC game i've ever seen, the combination of the technical aspects as well as the art design makes it look better than even DX11 games like BFBC2 ( also a multiplat )IMO> disclaimer for " OMFG DX11!! is the best " fanboys It all comes down to the developer, not the engines themselves, I have a bunch of examples of amazing looking multiplat games, Mirrors Edge, AVP, Dead Space, F.E.A.R 2, all look amazing, exclusives aren't everything. Some of the best looking games in existence are DX9 games, Half life episode 1 and 2 for example...I played those games for the first time only recently and I was blown away by the fact that they looked better than a lot of DX10/11 games that are out P.S disagree is not from me
No big deal if i use a word like Killzone 3, this is what you me ntion. The title is. "Will Cryengine 3 lead to over saturation of games" No single game come close to Killzone 3 footage screenshot, not even Uncharted 2/Killzone 2 or GOW3 and those game are the big boys. You will ignore that by pressing the disagree? Yes, i mention console version but i think those random 360 fanboys stealth clickers don't mind as long a PS3 N1. So the PC version is still ou of the wuestion Facts are that multi engine cannot compare with first exclusive engine. dchalfont, i just ask to you about the disagree :) But i understand what you mention. But what i mention is the Console versions ;) I'm also a PC gamer but if i see game like Uncharted 2/Killzone 2 or GOW3 those games are far better than the most PC games, with exception Cryis 1. That's why i have to buy a PS3 to play those game. :)
but it has some pretty low res textures. Yes I'm talking about the pc version. But there are plenty of free mods that u can install tho
This is n4g its news 4 children. Seriously when people talk about this garbage engine its mainly people bringing in 4 games Mirror batman dead space and mass effect. Honestly they have no other games to talk about because mainly all the other game who use this engine are trash. And mirror edge was not that great so I would not even include it in this category.
now when japanese developers make an RPG using the engine that's when I'll say it's better.
Real Killer do you even know what you are talking about? Pre render in the background?? Dude. This is famous for consoles. You get disagrees because you have no clue what you are talking about. You still beleive KZ2 looks better than Crysis on the PC at high settings lol "No single game come close to Killzone 3 footage screenshot, not even Uncharted 2/Killzone 2 or GOW3 and those game are the big boys. You will ignore that by pressing the disagree?" Dude those still shots look like KZ2 with color.
I doubt it. I heard that it's rather expensive. Maybe Crytek will work out some deals with smaller developers? Also, it's way early. Let's see what Crytek does with it's CE3 showpiece, Crysis 2.
UE3 would be a good engine for a Toy Story game. Low poly environments and models. Stiff animation. Shiny, plastic looking skin tones. Match made in heavan. EDIT So, just curious, which part are you'se disagreeing on? Did I say something untrue, or do you just not like hearing it?
This mod was made with the UE3, its way more intense then Killzone 2/3(whatever game) The game is still a wip so graphics aren't top notch
It's because your ignorance about the engine is clear. Read moar.
What the hell is a WYSIWYP
WYSIWYP= What You See Is What You Play which means what you see on the engine's screen is how exactely the game performs on it's correspondent platform
Ive always thought that with Unreal Engine characters looked like action figures now they look like realistic action figures but still... do you see the irony that i see?
WYSIWYP- What you see is what you play. It's what Crytek call it with their Sandbox V3 tool. As what you see in the Sandbox editor is what you're gonna play.
Yep, it's pretty awesome, your in the middle of a level, everything is already rendered as your moving, water and trees and wind and all, then CTRL+G and your running around blowing stuff up in the editor, good times, I loves me some helicopter vs. Hunter alien + friends action
ME1 and 2 looked plain, Bioshock was much more interesting than ME. But as for Cryen, I never seen so muck talk and so little walk wow.
Well if you own a PC read the article and wonder no more. This thing seriously makes so little sense it hurts. As far as console gaming goes, it still doesn't make the most sense. As many have stated above me, artistic direction and gameplay are up to the dev's, not the engine. On a side note...dchalfont, proxy, etc...How dare you bring logic and reason into N4G's comment section. *grabs pitchfork* "We don't take kindly to your kind 'round here!" ;)
