Logical then as HL2 is an ATI endorsed/sponsered game. I hope it's not the
other way around for Doom 3 as D3 is a 'The way it's meant to be played with
Nvidia" game. Of the two I'd rather play Doom then HL so it might be tricky
being a Radeon owner.
On the other hand I'm not sure what can surpass Far Cry now that I've played
that.

I'm looking forward to HL2 more than D3 but I reckon D3 engine based
games will be more commonplace than HL2 based.

Going to be very interested in real HL2 and D3 benches.

Considering the screens that id are drip feeding us appear to have the same
models in the same settings, only in different poses, I'm salivating for
HL2 far more - particularly after seeing last year's E3 footage in highres
splendour.

All "The way it's meant to be played with Nvidia" games I have seen
have worked better on ATI.

I'm more concerned about HL2 at the moment. Not because I'm really exited
about it. But because I'm really looking forward to Vampire: Masquerade BL,
and that will use the HL2 engine.

Anyone seen any technical specs for Thief(i.e. Thief 3)? I'm looking
forward to that, but I'm a bit worried that we'll get something that looks
approximately like Deus Ex 2.

Don't mind if it *looks* like DX2 - but I'll be sad if it's had the same
dumbing down applied to it :S

Well they've added a third person view which apparent is "good news for the
fans of the franchise" Or in proper English, a concession to the consol
market.
