Video: Unreal Engine 3 “Samaritan” tech demo

As promised on this week’s DLC-Live podcast, here’s the video that has been making waves since the GDC a little while back. Showcasing the new capabilities of the Unreal Engine 3 it takes purtiness (totally a word) to a whole new level. While I’m still not sold on the advances, as it just seems like a sexier version of CG cut scenes, I really would like to see even five seconds of it in a realistic gameplay situation. That said, once our podcast host Josh started to get into the nitty gritty of it, I grudgingly have to admit that I’m impressed… but I still want to see gameplay.

So what do you guys think? Is it a true leap forward in technology or just another smoke and mirrors show? Take a gander and let us know.
