    I was surprised to hear how he died, actually. Some sniper took him out? After countless years on the battlefield and he was never killed, but some sniper takes him out?
    I'm shure that Marvel wouldn't make it so un-glorious, and having not read it, I dunno how they did it. But man, I thought it'd have been something more... grandoise.

    Captain America is a staple of the Marvel lineup, and he will be missed!

    I'm going to be the first shredder on the Banjo.
    Yes, its true. I own and am learning the Banjo.
    But METAL flows through my veins, and theres nothing that can stop me from forming the first seriously Heavy Metal band with a Banjo and a Steel Drum in it (since my friend really wants one of those... I think it'd be awesome!)

    I thought it was pretty freaking sweet.
    I think I would have edited it slightly different though, if I were the editor, but thats just the technical filmaker in me speaking. It was a superb movie.

    A whole lot of people lost their heads, figuratively AND literally!

    One thing I noticed, though, is there was a ton of blood flying out of the bodies and whatnot but none on the ground. No pools, splatters, nothing!

    Otherwise, a great movie.

    I say no live-action, and not a ton of recognizable names.

    Mark Hamill should do the voice of someone because, well, he is an amazing voice-actor, and any Diablo movie would need as many of those as possible, since its an amazing game. It deserves an amazing movie.

    Really though, I'd prefer they didn't make a Diablo movie.

    i mean since D2 = 2D and D3 = 3D its quite simple. :)
    So D1 = 1D?
    And when they make D4 it'll be in 4D?

    :cool:

    Is that offensive? :confused: I thought that was another way of saying "to catch"...

    Depends on to what it is referring. Verb = To Catch.
    Noun = Something else ;)

    Quote from "Equinox" »
    Perphaps you should check your normal dictionary rather than the slang one.
    But its the slang term thats offensive, not the regular one.

    Like bitch. Used properly, not offensive at all. Used colloquially (as slang) its considered rude/offensive.

    Haha, thanks (:
    Thats not to say everything Equinox said was wrong though.

    I've pretty much said all I've got to say, both here and in PMs, so I'm done, lol.

    My school district uses WebSense, and they don't block this site, but they block a ton of good, harmless sites. Lately they've begun to add a lot more sites, though, and label them "Message Boards and Clubs". Hopefully they don't find this site, or all my in-school surfiing will be limited to what flows into my inbox...

    I think they should leave it the way it is. If people want to talk they'll download a program like TeamSpeak or Ventrilo.

    Ah, Equinox, you are right. It really is "distorted 2D". But then again you are wrong.

    Let me illustrate...
    You see on this piece of paper, there is an obvious X and Y axis.

    On this one, is the new axis still Y?

    Nope! Z axis.


    However, this doesn't mean I'm not willing to consent to your explinations. You described the phenomena very well, although in certain cases it really does produce a 3D environment. It might not seem that way when you look at the raw map data, but when you play in Doom, you play in 3D. Perhaps it would be better described as pseudo-3D....?


    But we are SO off topic that we're getting ridiculous!

    Lets tie this in, shall we?
    I think that Diablo 3 should be similar to D2 in perspective, although perhaps rendered in a true 3D, or even psuedo-3D environment. I may be a bit old-fashioned in thinking this, but I like the Diablo series the way it is. Not that some innovation will turn me off, but lets keep core-gameplay pretty much the same. It has been so far, and (ignoring WoW) I trust Blizzard enough to make the game awesome, 2D, Isometric, or 3D.

    Why would we talk shit about him?
    Its not like he came in here and started to insult all of us or anything... :confused:

    It may not come out soon, but it WILL come out. I think pretty much everyone agrees with that.

    At first I wasn't really psyched about the movie, but as time wore on I can't see how anyone wouldn't be excited!

    Spartan Warriors + one of the greatest military battles of all time + Frank Miller = AWESOME, even if possibly somewhat historically innaccurate at parts.

    But WoW is a good thing. What other game has gained more attention in the media than WoW, and no just negative. I'm sure GTA tops WoW when it comes to negative publicity, but including the good?
    I don't know about most american news papers, but I've seen a fair share of WoW in national Swedish papers.


    Media coverage and publicity aren't nessecarily very good things. In this case I don't think that it really matters.

    I just don't like WoW. Its a mediocre game that, I think, tarnishes Blizzard's reputation. Really, most of my hesitations for future Blizzard games comes from the fact that WoW was boring.

    Of course, I've also been finding most MMOs really don't please me too well (combat is so boring. Click once and watch the show!) so I don't think its just WoW.

    I still don't like it.


    And about the 2D-3D debate, Doom is three dimensional. There are X, Y, and Z axises. There is front-back, left-right, and up-down.
    However, due to limits in the engine it isn't rendered in a way where looking up and down will still give you a real-life image. Essentially what it does (as seen in Heretic, and Hexen I believe, but also Doom-engine Ports like zDoom) is skew the picutre, like was said before.

    However, if the game was really only in 2d, then how can you have stairs and upper and lower levels? These all have data on the Z-axis, telling them how high to be. But, because of another limit in the engine, you (essentially) can't have two planes "on top" of each other. So basically, you can make a bridge that goes acorss the river, but nothing can be under that bridge.

    Now THIS WHOLE POST was way off topic, so... yeah, sorry.

    I'll end it with this: Blizzard will come out with Diablo III eventually, and it is going to be good unless the make it an MMO. Thats just how its going to be. It will be worth the wait because, really, we can't help but wait. And its not like we can't enjoy other things while we wait, anyway. :D
