Heya Ron. No, there is no marvel version... though that's what a lot of fanboys like me have wanted, just so the rating could be boosted back up to an m. lol. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ron Schamerhorn" <blindwon...@cogeco.ca>

Hi

 I'd just have to say that if graphics have gotten that incredible since I
last saw them then that is nothing short of spectacular!  At the time the
best were [showing my age here *l*] Atari 2600 and I've seen one outstanding documentary about those days. Also the Coleco Vision [Zaxxon and the smurf
game *lol*].  So the tremendous change in even say 20 years.  Having said
that I do recall one of the first I ever saw was Telestar, it had a few
sports games but extremely simplistic.  As an example the i.e. ball was a
small square on the screen.  I'd still like to give the MK/DCU a good try
wonder what it costs to rent for a night or two?  Also I thought someone
said there was a Marvel version I'd be keen on that as in my younger days as a comic collector I was more of a Marvel comics fan then DC. With Wolverine
being among my favourite characters. Though I could see some other
characters putting up a good challenge as well.

Talk soon
Ron

Hi Jim,
Yeah, even I am amazed how much game technology has changed over the
passed 30 years. I remember when the first handful of games like Pong,
Demon Attack, Cosmic Ark, Atlantice, etc were released all the graphics
were in black and white. Later games for the Atari like Packman,
Centipede, Montezuma's Revenge, etc were all in 16 color.  That sounds
laughable now, but it made a huge difference in graphics technology at
the time.
When I am reading books on say Direct3D 10 it amazes me how the describe
the different camera angles, rotating the graphics in real time, and
building a completely 3D environment from hundreds of little graphics
and sounds. The better your vidio card the better resolution and more
realistic the 3D images look on the screen. It is no wonder people are
blown away by the graphics in some of the 3D games of today.
I don't have a PS3 myself, but I have heard the graphics technology on
the PS3 is pretty amazing if you can see it. The newest installment of
the Tomb Raider series, Underworld, for the PS3 is very realistic
looking. I've been told when Lara Croft emerges from the water her skin
looks wet and you litterally can see little droplets of water on her
body. I don't know about you, but that level of graphic detail blows me
away.
Smile.

Hi Thomas,

I didn't know that games now had revolving video views and different hit
points for different parts of the body etc.  It has been a very long
time since I could see a video game and I don't have anyone sighted
around that plays them either.  Sounds pretty good and realistic like
you said.

Some things have to be believed to be seen.
