Wow, looks good but I hope they ease up on the bloom effect. It looks way too smudgy\blurry. Normal people's vision isnt like that at all.

Everything else looks really nice though... I can almost taste the goodies on the plate in that one picture

Im the opposite...these screens dont really appeal to me....the game itself does, but I just dont see the WOW factor of these shots...the bump mapped walls look nice, but everything else looks like dx8 with bloom to me.

Hand over the crack pipe. Are you even looking at those screenshots, especially the forest area ones?

Pass it on over... I think you'd be hard pressed to make a DX8 game that looks anything like Oblivion. The geometry in Oblivion (to name one thing) impresses me quite a bit.

Yea, I agree, the forest shots do look nice, but the buildings and what not...I dunno....just doesnt do anything for me. Looks like a UT2K4 mod to me. Aside from the forest pics that is...those look freakin life like.

Keep talkin trash Clay...we'll see who's talkin trash when the Colts lose to the Broncos

I can see where you're coming from on some of the indoor shots. This kind of thing is always very subjective so whatever floats your boat.

Oooooh....ehhehehe You really think that the Broncos can pull it out? They are somewhat improved on defense but they're actually at the same levels statistically as they were last year. The Colts, arguably, are much improved offensively and they are better on defense with Freeny and Mathis, not to mention Doss is coming back to full strength and Sanders was very impressive before he dinged his knee a few weeks ago..he should be good to go though as well on Sunday.

Here's a good article that I bet you'll enjoy reading :

I love the Colts-but I'm just afraid of their defense, it shows high points and low points, this season is a bit unpredicatable with their defense. Still tho...I think we can agree, it really doesnt matter who wins....we all know the Steelers are taking it all.... (and i hate saying that, but i'll admit it) i'll check out that link =)

It has been said that this time the engine is more scalable than Morrowind. BTW, It seems that some developers are still using 9800Pro in their rigs, so performance shouldn't be a problem for any NV40 card.
