Developers spending a decade in a career holding pattern for below market salary with ‘profit sharing’ incentives, no real project deadlines, a motion capture room apparently used to capture the motion of strippers (the new game was to take place in a strip club, owned by Duke, that gets attacked by aliens), and countless crestfallen fans. *Sniff*, I would have played that game.”

A writer from AnandTech got a look at Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3 working on the newest iPod Touch. It’s an impressive feat even if there are some asterisks.
The Unreal Engine 3 will only run on third-generation iPod Touches and the iPhone 3GS, and the demo being shown is not a fully-operable game, just a stripped-down version of Unreal Tournament.
Some elaboration from AnandTech from their meeting with Epic Games V.P. Mark Rein:
Epic isn’t announcing any sort of iPhone engine licenses nor are they entering the iPhone game market. Porting UE3 to the iPhone is simply one of many projects being worked on inside a newer, more svelte and innovative Epic Games (wait till you see what’s next…)… Mark said they planned to make this available to licensees at some point in the near future.

I would personnally add that Unity and Torque should start feeling uneasy with the release of UDK. If Epic devlop a web browser component and iPhone export… watch out !

This is Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a few minutes ago on the floor of the Senate chamber lambasted Republican’s for their lies, fear-mongering & hatred of Barack Obama (h/t DKos’ Gorette):
“All to break the momentum of our new young president. They are desperate to break the president. The birthers, the militias, the lifers— it is unbearable to them for the presidency of Barack Obama to exist.”
“…the lying time is over….there will be a reckoning.”
The Senate health care bill faces its first challenge in a late-night procedural vote. Yesterday, Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) said he’s prepared to vote for the bill after reaching a compromise on abortion language. He is likely the 60th vote needed to move forward. The Senate will hold general debate from 1:00 pm ET until 11:30 pm ET in preparation for a 1:00 am ET Monday vote on the motion to evoke cloture on the Majority Leader’s Managers Amendment to the health care bill. This is the 17th day of health care debate.
