That game's gonna be bigger than Jesus...nay Baby Jesus.
On to other gaming news. I installed Myst IV: Revelation yesterday. For the full install, I needed 8 gigs of free space. Maybe you should read back over that. 8 mofo'n gigs! If anyone can tell me a game that requires more, I'd like to know. So far, it's the largest game I have ever installed on any computer I have ever owned. Such is the history with Myst, however, so there shouldn't be much of a surprise.
I'm only 5 minutes into the game and actually have not gone beyond the first door. I just installed it so I could be ready. I'll be done with Myst: Uru: The Path Of The Shell by the end of today.
Back to those first 5 minutes. They've broken ground here. Something, I can't quite explain it. You fly through this canyon. And it looks....real. Myst has never looked real. It's come close, but due to certain things, it's never felt "alive". This is different. The water doesn't look like DirectX 9 type of water, it doesn't look like some type of jelly as most water does in games. This place, this "canyon" looks like it could exist somewhere in the world, but it doesn't. You know it doesn't...and you just have to keep telling yourself that.
The reason I am getting all hard and moist over this is not because of what I just said. Not because of the first 5 minutes. It is because of what awaits me after the first 5 minutes.
