The Bank Job scene of Heat is action film at it's best

I heard all the gun scenes in the film where choreographed by an ex-SAS member. That is probably why DeNiro,Kilmer et AL use professional techniques and act like Soldiers.

WILL be the FIRST official case of video game related violence.

Thats will be the 1st time anybody has killed somebody before playing the game.

At least you're in the US, I need to wait another 2 weeks to get it.
Imagine how Homicidal you would be then

I feel for you man. It sucks you have to wait an extra week when SO many people will be playing it now, and posting about it, bragging about it, etc.

Can I make a formal request on the behalf of all the People from the UK and Europe,

When you(North Americans) get Doom3 can you not talk about it please ? pretty please ?, pretty please with Sugar on top. I'll give all of you a virtual cookie if you don't talk about it.

ps.

Just got an email from Amazon it says delivery estimate is between 16 Aug 2004 - 17 Aug 2004

argh, an extra day, 2 weeks till DOOM 3 NOoooooo, hits head off computer desk

You stole Doom 3. You broke the law, because you're impatient. I don't see the problem waiting one more day to buy a legitimate copy.

What happens if you live outside the North America and have to wait until the 13th ? Can you download it then ? please ?

I want to play it, I need to play so far I haven't tried to download it. But when you North American people get and start talking about it. The temptation to download will be unbelievable.

Just pre-ordered off Amazon.co.uk total cost - £26.98
- or $49.28US

If we ask politely maybe no one will talk about it here for 10 days until we get it also?

Doubt it. But at least those Canadians and Americans can beta test it for us. and put this way if it sucks at least we find out about it before we buy it

But as a DirectX developer I'd really like to KNOW what this update involves....

If you are a developer you are better looking at the Directx SDK site for changes. Just check for the summer update. IIRC they have updated the Direct3D Extension Library and the samples released with the summer update are better than the last release of DXSDK. Especially for Direct 3D.

edit

found this link that lists the changes in the SDK.

DirectX provides DirectDraw (2d graphics), Direct3D (3d graphics)

They have been combined into one API called Directx Graphics, Direct Draw is no more, you use Direct3D to create 2D Graphics in Directx.

and probably other miscellaneous stuff I forget.

Directshow for playing videos and other multimedia like MP3, a higher level of abstraction than DirectAudio(DirectMusic & Sound) for playing audio anyway.
DirectXSetup used to distribute Directx with the applications you create in the Directx SDK.

Did't a renderware engine power the last Morrowind game?

I think Renderware was used to Create the last 2 Grand theft Auto Games.

I am going to do an MSC in Games Development and supposedly we use Renderware to create games for the playstation 2 , Xbox and PC.

I predict a 1-0 England with Scholes the scorer.
Can I have some of what your smoking

Seriously I am all for being confident but all this hysteria over the France game is getting out of control. Just look at the French Midfield and Forwards, for god sake. They probably have the best Midfield in Europe at the moment and one of the best strikers in the world.
Look the England centre backs King and Campbell, they have no pace and Henry is going run rings round them, Also look at who England has in goal

I predict 2-1 to France

Planescape Torment is one of best RPG's ever, It had one of best stories for an RPG as well. IMHO it is even better than Baldurs Gate.

I do a Course at University called 3D Computer Animation and Modelling.
We use XSI for all of our courseworks. I quite like the package, it has advantages and disadvantages like all packages.
But I was amazed at what I could do with it just using some simple modelling techniques.

I thought there was a lot of scope for replayability. You could play as a Light side Jedi or Dark Side Jedi then there is all the sub quests for each of the main characters.

Over here th UK some game actually get a movie rating by BBFC for example Max Payne 2 has a 15 rating which I think is the same as R over in the US, Call of Duty had a 15 rating and GTA Vice City had a 18 rating.

I think when these games are rated by BBFC they come under Video Recordings Act, which means any retailer selling a game to an underager can be prosucted (sp ?).

If memory serves the first game to get an 18 rating was Solider of Fortune 1.
