    I think that they are going to discover that making good games is a lot harder than making cool short videos that trash people's systems. At best, they'll create another Doom3, looks great, plays like crap.

    I dont know, I am hoping that they make that Wings of Fury benchmark into a game, that one looked like it would be great to play.

    Doom3 was a classic, it was like 1993 all over again but with pretty graphics and the ability to look up :D

    I remember there was a demo in an old futuremark that you could play. It was in a truck with a missile launcher on the back.

    all so 3dmark 36 is no longer an compleate 3D mark now its an 3d/PC mark as the CPU can make the total score go up (why i allways ask for the SM2 and SM3 scores as total score is now meaningless now due to Quad cores )

    hopefully thay not make the next 3dmark an 3d/PCmark (08/09?) and Not vista only

    "Futuremark says that the new studio’s mission is to build world class games “that bring new and entertaining game play to gamers.” It also claimed that the games and their engines will deliver stellar performance—regardless of whether you’ve got a bleeding edge system, or something that’s a little more modest by today’s standards." Ah they seek to quest for the elusive Holy grail of game design.
