So I posted about CoD and HL, both of which use other game's engines and both of which look nothing like the original game thereby nullifying your "theory" that if a game uses another game's engine, both games will look similar.
ah, ok. i was actually responding to the beyond3d people (and you) who were saying that it didnt look that good, even though its clearly the most advanced engine out there. and the article even states that not all the levels will be indoors (like quake). and the only way in which it looks like doom3 is the fact that it has shadows (oooooo). dont worry, im not flaming so dont get your panties in a bunch
plus, you cant really compare q4 to those other games you listed. for one thing, they're using the d3 engine, without any tweaking, like the other games have done. thats one of the reasons why the game is coming out so relatively soon (from the release of the original engine).
ps- and halflife was built on the q1 engine, not 2.

Show me where I said the game looked bad? Show me where I said Doom 3 looked bad. I said it looks just like Doom 3. It's a shooter set in the dark, scary space of the future with monsters attacking you. The models look (good) exactly the same as Doom 3 as do the environments. And what do you know, it happens to be the same engine, too.

I wasn't comparing Q4 to the games I listed. I listed those because, again, you came across as sounding like every game that uses another game's engine looks just like the original game, for example: since CoD used the Q3 engine, it looks exactly like Q3 and since HL used the Q2 engine, it looks exactly like Q2. And that is not the case for either game.

Just because a game uses the engine of another game, it does not mean the games have to be or will be identical. I think they could do a lot more to make Q4 NOT look like Doom 3 and it's a damn shame they haven't yet.

This looks promising. I've dug every Raven game I've played, so at least that part should play out nicely. The environs are of the indoor, metallic-industrial type and do look like Doom 3, but those Marines look great. The faces in D3 weren't as good as I was hoping - still good, but still looked a little plasticky, IMO.

Hopefully, once we start seeing more of the differing environments the article talks about, we can put our fears to rest about it looking too much like Doom 3 (though they could have done with a wider color pallette).

Oh man! I can't WAIT to see the newly modelled Gladiator. Of all the FPSs I've played, Quake 2 has given me EASILY the most play time.... I love that game. Sure, the story left a lot to be desired, but it was still great. Yay for more Stroggs!

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

In Carmack's keynote speech, he talked about how he's adding sub-surface scattering for skin tones to the next engine. Now, it'd be nice if they added, say, an option to Quake IV (OMGWTFBBQ QUAKE IV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm really glad to hear that the multiplayer is going to be somewhat (at least in the movement it appears) like Quake III. It has by far the best feel of a multiplayer game to date. No one else even tries :/) to turn on this sub-surface scattering. I'm sure that id could side-port it to Raven if they're still producing Quake IV when Carmack's got it working in his next engine.

Hooray!

This makes me very happy as well. Quake 3 was the best game ever.

Can't wait, but I just hope it doesn't cost $90 some dollars by the time it comes out.
