    Yeah. Checked this out earlier. Holy crap. Anyone with an iPhone 4 should check this out. There is a game being made with this engine on the phone

    For those of you who don't know this is the same engine that they use for games like Gears of war.

    Well the good news is that these graphical assets, as well as the engine, are actually being used for an Action RPG exclusive to the Iphone. So this isn't only a demo. This will actually be a game.

    Looks like the Iphone is going to have better games then the actual apple computers.

    I just read that the game they were making with this engine was a fighting game, not an action RPG. What-A-Waste.......

    It's like most situations. The Tech is right, the implementation is off. So you show off a virtual landscape that looks like something on PS3 and 360, and you can explore it.... but the implementation will be a fighting game.

    edit to my edit: Nevermind, I just read that the fighting element was part of a demo to a game that features RPG elements.

    Looked great on the iPad. Got me a little motion sick though.

    They've let the software out to other developers, so we should be seeing some impressive stuff soon. Also ID software, has another impressive engine for their rage game.
    Rage Game .net

    What's happening is developers are finally taking the capablities of the phone and ipad seriously. SO by next year we will have a lot more quality games as it takes that long often to program games this detailed.

    And this is a kick-ass thing. But my only wish is that they would give us a gaming attachment. Some games work fine with touch. Others simply don't and really never will.
