    Wow, that's seriously cool.

    steveo - the game comes with the editor already, so you can use that for much crazyness, in fact the demo came with it. :)

    [edit]Anyone know who that was on the soundtrack?

    [double edit] It's called "Moon Of My Nights" by Kalmah. Good song. :D

    Any system he wants that can play the game :p

    The FPS is irrelevant in that situation. I can't remember how you do it, but you can make the game wait until every frame has rendered. For example: about 5 seconds a frame instead of 5 frames per second.

    Omfg. That's the sort of processing power Dreamworks used to fantasize about having...

    I like "I can't look at the main explosion for more than 2 secs or my system crashes" :D This game's gonna scale so well onto next gen hardware.

    That is just beautiful :) I'm terribly sad now that, on my AMD X2 4800+ w/ 7950GX2, I can barely play Crysis, while it chugged along well on my C2D E4400 8800GTS 640Mb :(

    Seriously... I could do the same thing on my crappy old PC! It would run at about 30 seconds per frame, but it would still be able to render it. Doesn't matter how much processing power you've got. It will just take longer.

    Ahh, so that's how pixar looked so pretty ahead of the times, is it?
    (Bunch of cheaters. Try pouring out 60FPS, you movie gimps!)

    On a sidenote:
    I can run this game on medium settings without a single stutter on a pentium D 925, 2gb of 533MHz ram and an x1900XT. It looks better, shinier, smoother and more complex than Oblivion. It has better, denser environs than Oblivion. The physics and lighting is more intense than Oblivion. The textures are nicer than Oblivion. It renders land miles away and scales objects and grass, like oblivion.
    But curiously, I can't raise Oblivion above a steady 20FPS, and it's 2 years older than Crysis, too.

    ...wtf?
