The Thing is one of my favorite movies ever. Even if the game sucked I would probably get it just for the free DVD!

I dont know about the thing, have not heard much about it, but the screen shots look pretty sweet. I am really looking forward to Generals. I have been looking at some of the new UT stuff, but I am not sure if I will get it or not.

Yay I think:) All good.....though I'm not too sure about The Thing....it seems a little bit too Resi Evil for my taste...

But thats just my opinion. I'm not into survival horror, but it looks good. Wise choices there:thumbsup:

Ever seen the movie The Thing with Kurt Russell?

Wow, if you haven't I really recommend renting it on DVD.

It's one of the best horror flicks of all time. :)

Check out people's reviews of the movie:

The thing looks a lot like Half Life, and its made by sierra. Maybe worth invistigating a little bit or investing some money. It comes out in a month. I will just see what happens after it releases and see what peoples reviews are. That is what I did with WC3, but I am a little dissapointed. Its a good game, dont get me wrong, but I dont think its as good as the hype says it is and its a little expensive right now.
