Project Offset: Cinematic-quality gaming

I’m irrationally excited about Project Offset. Never mind the frightening array of jargon such as unified lighting and shading, post-processing, realistic shadowing, and particle effects, what it all boils down to is that playing it will be like playing in your very own Lord of the Rings movie. The graphics are that good! Download the video sneak peeks if you don’t believe me. I was blown away yesterday by the Bioshock demo; it’s changed my expectations of gaming completely. Beautiful and interactive environment, stunning graphics, and a storyline that immerses you in a world beyond your imagination. This is what all new games should be like: promise a lot, and then deliver more than you could possibly expect. Makes going to the movies seem dull. I’m hoping Project Offset exceeds my expectations.
