    Any screenies yet? Will they be rewriting the engine or just building on the existing one?

    no screenies. they said that quake 4 will be released after Doom 3 and it will use a variant of the Doom 3 engine. It will take place where Quake 2 left off... in other words it isn't a pure arena style game like quake 3.

    Quake 4 is being done by Raven using the Doom 3 engine. And I doubt its coming out for a while, considering it was just announced. I doubt any consumer computer existing now would be able to run it or Doom 3 well, considering that it was said (i think) that a GeForce 3 would net you 30 fps in doom 3.

    Quake 4? That could be bad or good. I think the only great game was the original. Id ****ed up from there. But that's just my humble opinion...

    quake 3 = very clean graphics engine, very realistic in a virtual sort of way.

    quake 4 will use the doom 3 engine which will bring a realistic graphics engine to the deathmatch genre. remember the macworld japan keynote earlier this year? the doom 3 character models and enviroments and lighting effects? oh baby!

    Well I'll have a new computer by then. No way in hell my old g3 500 B+W will be able to run it since I'm assuming it will need os x following after Doom 3's footsteps.

    Get me a nice dual 800. That should do it.

    You don't sell macs!

    Everyone knows that unless you're really hard off you keep every mac. I still have every one that I've had.

    Anyways, I'm waiting until after the next MWNY to get my comp.

    That way they'll be a revision at MWSF and then another at MWNY. By then we might even be into the G5s.

    We're talking about G4s here, not CEOs.
