Ahh... Ancient civilizations. SV, does that mean civilizations in the Foundations Period? Or does it also include the Classical and Post-Classical Periods as well?

If the first, I loved learning about Mesopotamia. Babylon, Sumer, and Assyria in one coutnry makes for a diverse, interesting history. :9

It actually started with Mesopotamia and ended just tonight with the end of the real medieval period around the Renaissance. It covered pretty much everything between to some degree, but the main focus was Mesopotamia & Egypt and then especially Greece & Rome.

Ever watch those old sword and sandal movies? They're fun, if wildly inaccurate. I don't even have to mention Ben Hur and Fall of the Roman Empire. FotRE was epic. It took half my day to watch it, and like two dvd's, but it was good.

Sorry about randomly logging out Mac. For some reason my internet gave out and it won't let me reconnect right now. I'll try again tomorrow.

I greatly enjoyed Ben Hur aside from the tacked-on, out of place, deus-ex-machina, miracle goulash at the end (I was ok with most of the religious references... like jesus in the slave line terrifying the roman soldier just by looking at him, but from a narrative standpoint, everything after the race was pretty much terrible and seems like it was written and added after the rest...). Jason and the Argonauts was pretty great too. Clash of the Titans... entertaining, but pretty bad (though Harry Hamlin was rad as Perseus). IMO Harryhausen did much better on Jason. I actually really enjoyed the new Clash of the Titans for the most part; more than the original.
And of course the God of War game series is pretty much a brutal, bloody, cynical sword 'n' sandal tragedy trilogy. God of War II actually has an appearance of Perseus, modeled after and voiced by Harry Hamlin from the original Clash of the Titans. :D

All that said, would love to see more accurate greek & roman films...

Speaking of the God of War series of games, I almost bought a Playstation 3 just for that game and Little Big Planet.

I love the chariot race itself, but its writing could've been better.

I love Jason and the Argonauts! Have it on DVD. Despite the hokiness of some of it, it was enjoyable.

PS3's are sooooooo much better than 360, IMO. Even the controllers. The graphics seem superior to me, too.

I approve. Though I've never played LBP.

@Bio: That's what I figured. I just went and played regular multiplayer for awhile.

Eh, that may or may not be true, but I've had my 360 for quite some time now and it has served me well. And aside from the above mentioned games, there is nothing exclusive to the PS3 that interests me. Why spend the cash when I can put it to far more interesting hobbies?

It is quite tempting, but see above.

I think I like this version better than the one on Flickr. More reference picures, less me having to click links.:9 But I have read through it all and it started to give me ideas, as evidenced by my posts a few nights ago about using Brasso.
