With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

I cant wait for this kind of fluid and destructibility to be in a game.

This was using a nvidia 580 with Physx.

First half is fluid demonstration, second half is fluid with dynamically destructible glass.
Ive also seen a nvidia demo where stone pillars are dynamically destructible.

That's amazing. I remembered back in the day getting water to reflect surfaces was a big deal.

Isn't this old tech? Like, a decade old? Or is this really about how advanced our GPUs are getting?

The tech has been around since nvidia implemented physx way back on the 200 series. Which was back in 2008, 5 years ago.

The problem is so many developers wouldn't put in the effort to put physx stuff in. Consoles dont have physx and a majority of games are created to try to be the same on all platforms. Nvidia also locked out amd cards from hardware accelerating Physx.

Some devs did great physx implementation while still multi platforming.
Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham city
Borderlands 2



Nvidia has offered to help sony get physx to run on AMDs tech for the ps4.
I personally would rather nvidia share and work together so more developers are likely to use it and for it to work properly.
