    That's a pretty big admission, for that he I tip my hat to you Mr Carmack. Can I also add, you died really well in that Doom movie.

    I'm currently trying to make a basic opengl game for a piece of Uni coursework.

    All I can say is, I hate OpenGL more than anything, :D

    *facepalm* what a bad movie, except for the ending when it actually looks like an FPS.

    It's really a shame that the open standard should be worse than the MS standard. But I guess we can't pretend it's otherwise.

    He was turned to an imp and then trapped in the nano door then for "The Rock" to put a bullet in his head.

    What a way to go!

    Just release Rage already won't you? And kick Raven into finishing Doom 4 as well.

    Other than that though, I'll let you off.

    Which will come first, HL2E3 or Doom 4? HL3 I feel would have become like Duke Nukem Forever if it werent for the episodes.

    Agreed. I hadn't even heard of the Far Cry film until I'd read about lawsuits in the States for pirating it. Now I wish I hadn't heard of it again.

    I think the Farcry movie is running on SkyMovies at the moment. If I watch it, can someone give me my 90 minutes of life back?
