@MordeaniisChaos: Yep. I'm basing my wild guesses off of what I did see, and you're basing them off of what you didn't.
Really though, I'm just being difficult :) I get irritated by graphics showcases since frankly how advanced a game's rendering engine is is utterly, utterly meaningless for me. I don't care how it looks if it's not backed up with some relatively interesting and well-implemented mechanics that haven't been lifted wholesale from the current sales leader. Most people seem to have the opposite reaction to game footage though.
