Star Wars 1313: Plays like Uncharted, Running on Unreal 4?

Considered that at the time. Makes sense. The soft lighting and colour vibrance is very similar to that used in Gears 3.

A LOT different Gag. For a start, those particle effects will be scaled down about 10 times at least (no joke), the AO will be gone, there'll be aliasing, no other fancy tricks. It'll be pretty enough but as it stands it's really a Direct X showcase. All those nifty little tricks that are only available on the top end are what give it flare, without them, it doesn't look all that impressive. Same with BF3.

Probably getting close to needing to upgrade the PC soon, 512 MB or ram really doesn't cut it any more.

Fingers Crossed the PC version will be 64 bit and DX 11 cards only, the only game to come close to that was BF3 with DX 10 cards. That should quash most of driver overheads, even though I dislike EA in alot of regards at least they are forcing the requirements out of the dark ages.

Doesn't look very impressive to me. Everything from particle effects to the overall graphics and facial animations.. it all looks pretty standard. Anything can look like this when it's made of a linear set of setpieces with attention to detail. Obvious why they showed only around 2 minutes of actual gameplay.

Well, that was predictably disappointing. No bearded wonder in sight, no sale for me. If you're going to make another Star Wars shooter, bring back the man that made it gold back in the day Kyle "I can beat up Chuck Norris" Katarn!

It's still going to be Next Gen. The Samaritan demo was running on UE3 and that was very clearly a call to the next gen to step up.
