hey guys,

I just saw this trailer. It is a game for xbox360 and PC. Since by the time lok6 might start production or something...we will be getting physics cards..why don't CD go all out and make a game with this much interactivity.

the game is called Cell factor

Do yourself a favor and look at this...it is absolutely amazing

this is definately what we need for kain if there is a next lok game. Imagine the possibilities of telekenesis then. WOW..

Please CD..I will gladly buy a aegia physix card just for lok6 :)

lol! I hope the mods don't mind with this screenshot////the community just needs to see the future possibilites. CD did an amazing job with the new tomb raider graphics. for LOK...we hope they touch new heights in interactivity just as soul reaver 1 did for the spectral realm.

As cool as physics acceleration is technically, I can't see it catching on unless the price drops considerably. Those cards are what, $300? I won't even pay that much for a 3D card anymore, and I'm a bit of a gamer dork.

I think what's more likely is that graphics chip companies will integrate the same functionality into 3D accelerators, like they did with 2D and 3D back in the 90s. Then you'd have more of a "gaming card" that did everything.

yeah...thats acutally begining to happen. nvidia's SLI cards are apparently programable. So you can actually let one card take the role of doing the physics for you.

I can really see this becoming big in the fps industry. But It would be a very good aspect for a game like legacy of kain where we have telekenesis powers. It soo much cooler to lift those boxes and barrels in defiance and throw them on enemies and have a ton of more objects in the game without a performance drop. Cloth physics, kain and raziel can have individual strands of hair that moves realistically. Blood can flow realistically....wow...the possibilities are endless. You can definately imagine the prices going down if thats what you are concerned... and probably yeah..the new GPU that would come out if LOK6 is planned in 2 yrs would have this integrated. :p
