Heh.. the last pic is nice, but it's a bit shoddy. Look at the guys in the middle. They're just standing around casual like. ****, they're brave.

yeah you can play the "bad" guys. and i doubt it will run that slow since the game engine supports instancing.

Isn't that basically what they did in the last movie? Just kinda hung loose cause they were simply waiting...
