A significant step has been made in Nintendo’s new bid to capture a core games market with Wii U. The innovative new console is being supported by two Unreal Engine games and, Develop believes, the high-end engine tech behind them.
That means framerate issues, texture pop-in, and screen tear galore! Even my fairly high-end PC I still get issues with UE games.
Bulletstorm on the PC, i thought anyway, looked gorgeous. I also didn't notice those things too often in the Gears 3 beta either. I hope Nintendo's new console doesn't have those issues you mentioned.
You forgot fulgy mutha f****ing character design with bulky stone face.
A game engine has fuck all to do with character design. I used to come to N4G to read retarded troll comments, but it's no fun when the comments are beyond retarded. Look at them bulky characters in Tera (U3 Game)
There goes my hopes down the drain :(
So much for "graphical powerhouse." They couldn't have chosen a more outdated engine.
just like the ps3 and 360. this engine is so sucked off and topped so hard you think it was the holy grail. nintendos just tryin to make everyone happy from hardcore to casual. they felt the burn last gen with were not supporting the wii until its powerful and now they will. just because it has this engine doesnt mean nothing. its a dam videogame engine so if crytek supports it will you still say "So much for "graphical powerhouse." "
You make no sense. How is it valid to apply that same logic to an engine by Crytek when Crytek's CryEngine utterly destroys Epic's Unreal Engine? Your post makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Go play Pokemon, man.
Wait, so it's dated because it supports the Unreal 3 engine? That makes no sense. Of course it would support that, there's no Unreal engine 4 games yet!
Unreal 3 is still great did you play bulletstorm, gears 3 beta, batman aa? Its updated and a great engine if you use it right. I think this aims to be easy for 3rd party dev to use and get multis on. Nintendo will still use its own engine so why worry? You wont get a console because a few games use unreal heck ps3 uses unreal 3 for tons of games also so i dont know the problem.
Highend PC as in what? Dual Core Celeron with 512MB of RAM, and onboard Intel GMA Graphics?
Well I have an [email protected], 4GB ram, and nvidia geforce 415 1gb. The unreal engine chugs a bit on high, its not exactly one of the better tuned engines, and its not exactly stable. Mind neither are the CryEngine's stable really, even for those with a much better setup
I have a quad core, 8gbs RAM and a 5870 and as an example Portal 2 looks as good as Bulletstorm. With Portal 2, I can run it a 1080p at 60 fps with max everything including 8x AA. With Bullerstorm I run it on max everything with a variable frame rate of 25-45 with only 2x AA.
. I would of expected Unreal 3.95 at this point. Unreal has been used by EVERYONE this gen because it's that good. Sony PAID to use it on it's 2 big MMO's. Dice PAID to use it on Mirrors Edge and then announced there own Frostbite 2 engine. Ubisoft has been using Unreal products for years. The first Graw and Rainbow Six used Unreal 3 THEN they announced their own engine Yeti...Hmmmm CapCom used Unreal 3 for Lost Planet and then announced their own custom engine for Lost Planet 2...Hmmm Lukas arts just signed a deal for Unreal...must be because it's bad...O_o ...and the list goes on and on. Some of the best looking titles from Batman to Gears all use the tech. Gears 3 may be the best one yet. Not many if any can pull this off... http://youtu.be/f_yEgrhiSPM Great tech makes great games... http://youtu.be/RLqnZfqjTiM ...and the future looks bright...IN REAL TIME!!! http://youtu.be/RSXyztq_0uM They are but one engine but criticizing it is beyond dumb considering how great it has made this gen.
Thank you for saving me a lot of money
yay for old overused engines:-D
Why would anyone get excited about an old engine that is about to be replaced by a new one?
If it's so powerful why not use unreal engine 4? Or put powered by unreal engine 4?
Pee U No Thanks
Why is this amazing? The 360 uses this engine perfectly fine, and it can beoptimized for the ps3 to work perfectly.
i hate unreal engine all unreal engine games esenially look way too similar espicially the fire anyways as said above expect mutiple issues
Would like to see Mortal Kombat get ported over
So it looks like Wii-U will be using DX9 and not using the current DX11. So Nintendo caught up to this gen of games on console. Makes me wonder if Nintendo will release another console when microsoft and Sony does theirs. Possible Nintendo is sticking to the 5 year console cycle of old.
The UE3 supports DX11. What do you think was running the Good Samiritan demo? It wasn't UE4...
I am sorry but the engine is terrible it doesn't do anything new. I am more interested in the frostbite 2.0 engine with destructable environments with high end evisuals. Unreal 3 engine just has pretty visuals with static environements, i hate static environments. You would have thought by now you could get great visuals with unscripted destruction.
Super Gears of Mario. Unreal Wario
People are hating just to hate now, seriously, first they say footage looks bad then find out it's from current consoles, doesn't that mean you just insulted your current gen systems as being rubbish? Now they are saying a tech engine that has run games people brought in droves and loved sucks because Nintendo has said they will have it's support and have some games running on it. Its retarded, if your so sick of current gen tech and engines why do you still lap up 360 and PS3 games and sequels. Why did you enjoy your E3 from the other studios without next gen announcements. I'm hoping Nintendo release their specs early now too, but just to shut everyone up!
WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE UNREAL?
