Yeah i so want Deus Ex2
in my opinion Deus Ex was the best designed game i have played it was brilliant! I loved it, it was unfortunate it was held back by it's poor engine. God i hate that engine its soooo poor.
Can't say that i'm interested in UT2003 though, mainly cause i doubt i'll be able to run any good :(
I'm also looking foward to the ultimate specail edition of Fellowship Of The Ring that comes out in november.
Also the release of 2 towers is December 18 if i recall correctly.

Bloody hell its a giant harmonica!

I am hanging out for Doom 3.. yes, it's going to be a while! And I'm holding my hardware upgrade to until it comes out - I have no chance in hell running it on my current system. Mostly looking forward to mucking around with its level editor. I've stopped trying to make levels in Quake 3 ages ago because bsping took too damn long. Can't wait to do some level designs, and add in my own characters..

Movies.. There's Two Towers.. and then there are heaps of good movies coming out next year. Matrix 2, Terminator 3.. and I'm looking forward to "The Fountain", which is going to start filming in Australia in September.. it's a sci-fi with time travel spanning thousands of years.. so yeh, sounds good. I was looking forward to Signs too which I just saw last week.. it was ok.

I actually like Signs
it was nice to see an alien invasion movie that wasn't an action and was done very differently. I disliked the religeous (i didn't spell that right did i?) elements in the movie though.
Doom 3, whens that out?
Not too sure about it though as there isn't all that much information about the game itself out there. Not enough to get me hyped up anyway.
Perhaps the people that hang around at Sumea should look into doing a mod of some sort or perhaps like an animated story. That would be fun.

Bloody hell its a giant harmonica!

Signs wasnt too bad, It had a good feel too it although the aliens looked pissweak to me,
December 18 for the next lord of the rings huh? Awesome!

I wasn't hoping it would be another Independance Day, and I appreciate that it's not an alien action movie..(thats why I loved Contact) but I think if you went to see Signs as a movie really about family and relationships, with a bit of science fiction and horror thrown in, then you won't be disappointed.. It's a good movie, but in the same way that Unbreakable was a good movie.. There wasn't much wrong with it, but it just wasn't as good as 6th Sense (which I'm sure everyone will compare M. Shamalayans' movies against).. maybe it didn't have the big ending / twist that I was hoping for.
Doom 3.. I think it'll be out before Quakecon next year, so uh.. under 12 months.. I love horror games (Resident Evil series, Silent Hill), so anything that spooks me out is cool. .. also, the id guys have a very talented art team, so I'm looking forward what they can do with the cool engine.
A mod by the Sumea members? .. well, there's 37 members, so that's quite a big talent pool there.. hehe

...and Lord of the Rings - I can't believe they put that huge spoiler in the trailer!! I reckon they should've left it out. I haven't read the books, so I would've prefered to find out during the movie.. I'm talking about you-know-who in the white robes..

Oh, and Fluffy, happy birthday for tomorrow, mate.

The only stuff i have seen from 2 towers was the stuff on the first DVD
But my mate had already told me about "Mr white robes" :)
Yeah the aliens weren't really that good in the sense that for a horror movie they weren't scary at all
But hey man i still enjoyed it. It seems M. Night is making a name for himself by making intersting and different movies.
I also liked Contact and another good one is Gataca.
I also just got Beutiful Mind on DVD and whatched it with and without director comms (didn't have time to hear Akiva's commentary) and i saw the deleted scenes.
Now there isn't alot of special FX but it is a brilliant movie, Russel deserve the academy award more than Denzel. Alot more, but what can you do. I loved the first shot of him just sitting in the corner. That was really excellent acting. I also liked 2 other scenes but i think i need to stop blabbing on.
We do have a large talent pool indeed, but i have only seen about half of the 37 that visit the forums :(
So what does everyone else think. A MOD or short movie by the sumea guys and girls??
Did anyone else see Band Of Brothers last night. Kind of overhyped i think. But pretty impressive GFX. But i didn't like the overdone handicam shots and was it just me or did it seem to glorify war?

Bloody hell its a giant harmonica!
