    Ok so this might be old new(s) in which case I apologize, but the developer kit id is using to make rage just blew my mind. Check it out: [ame="http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/idtech5/video/6176263"]GameSpot Video: Id Tech 5 Stage Demo Part 2[/ame]

    Start there and look up the other parts too :D

    Fancy as hell. And to think a few years ago I was getting so hyped over the Source engine... and before that, the Build engine. Man, we've come a long way.

    I'm still wondering what's taking Valve so long with Ep3. At this rate i'm anticipating a whole new engine, and the game to take me a month to complete.

    They said a few months back that they were deliberatly staying silent on Ep3 and Portal 2 until L4D2 was out the door. Since L4D2 isnt completely out the door yet(no new authoring tools! wich were again promised on day zero) I expect we'll hear something about them before christmas.

    Yeah Rage engine looks pretty frickin sweet, but I'm also really excited about the Project Offset engine. I know it's not nearly as well known as idtech5, but I've been following this engine and game since it was just a 3 man team, and I think it's come a long way.

    This is a video about how they make stuff look pretty:

    If valve was in here they'd be ripe with jealousy. I really like those mapping features, it's just I find it amazing how much more efficient (performance wise) source is compared with those engines. My computer runs l4d2, full gore and setting with no lag, but slap on batman or fear and it's chugging along like a slideshow.

    And possibly another quake unless they sold that IP while I wasn't looking.
