    ojasEpic? Same company that was fapping to consoles the other day? Wonder what they were programming for, 2 decades ago...


    Yeah it was pretty sad and kind of confusing to see Epic the guy's that use to push the limits of current PC hardware praising consoles and saying they are the pinnacle of graphical power. Honestly that's the kind of shit I would expect to hear from someone in marketing not from someone that has a background in fucking computer programming and game development.

    I wish Epic would come out with a third game in the Unreal series, and no I don't mean Tournament!

    Main Theme - Unreal, my first exposure to epic.
    Main Menu - UT, kinda boring. Mechanism 8 or Save Me (Morpheus map, I think) just as recognizable and would compliment the composition better.

    Yeah Unreal 2 the Awakening was a very underrated game and was a complete PC only title. Though I have to ask one thing why no lossless love Epic? 320 kbs mp3's are nice and all but why not just give is the raw wav PCM or even flac files?

    Wow, I love Gears and Epic Games is one of the good last development team standing. They'd be much higher in our opinions if they didn't give PC the finger...

    Funny that Epic can act sentimental about their older PC games while they basically abandon that market completely for almost ten year old consoles that should have been ditched years ago... Especially with the next generation of consoles hardly being any more powerful than the old ones. Daring to say that those old consoles are the top of graphical performance is sickening.

    Pinnacle of.......WHAT?????

    Are they talking about the devices that couldn't run Crysis in its full glory?

    Or are they talking about the devices that are responsible for the stagnation of computer graphics development?

    How is a platform that is upgraded every four or five years be the pinnacle of graphical power?? They undoubtedly mean the pinnacle of sales power.

    Four to five years? Are you crazy? Double that number and it's still not high enough anymore.

    Here's the major factor you left out: he also has a background in making a sh*t ton of money. I'd imagine he cares more about making money than supporting any one specific platform.

    Instead of bashing how about praising Epic for making some of the best games ever?

    Someone posted the following using a bunch of your comments on the site where you can get the MP3, but it keeps getting deleted, obviously someone in Epic is butthurt because of the comments!:



    I have to agree with all the following comments:


    "Epic? Same company that was fapping to consoles the other day? Wonder what they were programming for, 2 decades ago..."


    "Yeah it was pretty sad and kind of confusing to see Epic the guy's that use to push the limits of current PC hardware praising consoles and saying they are the pinnacle of graphical power.

    MP3? Wow, the 90's called and wanted their crappy music format back...

    Thanks "Epic" but you need to catch up to this century.

    Also, I agree with the above, Epic isn't so epic anymore. You've severely slipped, just as Id and the other classic companies.

    id never really had game desighners... they had the tech side down, but never had the gameplay side, and we moved on from the days where the tech with a good enough game was good enough.

    epic and capcom perfected how a 3rd person shooter should be, and that is why innovation seams so lacking, they PERFECTED IT as in no room for massive improvements, at this point its minor tweaks.

    you cant reinvent the wheel over and over again each time getting better.
    the only real innovation in fps came from valve and half life 2,

    it will take a brand new gameplay mechanic to make a game feel new again, and i believe that you should all keep an eye on minecraft like games, because that is where the next innovation is going to come from.

    fully destructible land, we had rudimentary attempts till now, but one of them, cant remember its name, is getting close to being what a fps needs.
