CGW's March 2005 issue cover story talks about CT's new lighting system and rendering engine. Unfortunately, the Feb 2005 issue is still up on their site but their site hasn't updated to Mar 2005 yet; so you'll have to wait.

I cannot wait for this game at all. I'm still playing the xbox demo to help me through until the release date. :laugh:

I had a feeling this would happen ever since the game was announced :rofl:

It's just a gut feeling I had when the first news of the game started coming in. I've been anticipating it for a long time.
