Since Warcraft II was long before the time of intense Direct3D rendering, maybe it will run in a Virtual PC environment. (http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/virtualpc/virtualpc.aspx)

EDIT: Or Diablo.

<3

Editz0r : Blizzard holds one of the greatest concepts for games in hands with diablo.

I mean, just seeing the movie Constantine, i see like how fucking awesome D3 can be, like with these ancient original monsters, devils, demons, etc, etc, etc..

Like in history books, you read all about succubi, the childeren of lilith, who was the first woman of Adam, (from adam and eva.)

And, well, diablo is also fucking awesome..

Muchmuchmuchmuch better concept than WoW, or Guild Wars -

I haven't read the comics but I think that Keanu Reeves was the wrong actor for this role.

Yes, he was blonde and from Liverpool.  :P Not black-haired and from LA or wherever.I dunno about the special powers thing.

Eh, what're you gonna do, artistic license at work...
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

WC 2 is an amazing game, nothing beats WC 1 or starcraft though^^
bugger i lost my copy of WC1 and now only can find demo versions on the net-.-
WC2 i had aswell, now i only have the bnet edition, which sucks cause it has no singleplayer campaigne.

to be on topic:
I play WC3 tft online, i'm only on northrend though and not any use in AT^^
might be cause i only play TDs or heroline wars^^

I play often. A few games everyday. Doesn't have that same edge as Starcraft did, but a still a good game in its own right.

Like in history books, you read all about succubi, the childeren of lilith, who was the first woman of Adam, (from adam and eva.)

Actually, Lilith as the first wife of Adam were first introduced in the middle ages. Originally, Lilith was a demoness.

As for Constantine, Keanu was very wrong for the role. Not as wrong as you could go, but worse than many others. Also, the story wasn't up to par with the stories in the comic.

John Constantine (who by the way was created before Blizzards Diablo) is a blond, liverpoolian Sting-lookalike, and a competent mage/occultist. His main strenghts, however, are his cunning, quick thinking and in some cases extreme cases of luck (usually at the cost of those around him). Whatever he does, somebody else (often innocent) seems to have to pay the price.

Also he smokes 60 Silk Cut cigarettes a day.

and, for anyone who has seen the movie:

in one of the plot lines in the movie he gets lung cancer right? Well thats based on one of the stories from the comics but at the end of the arc in the comic he doesn't quit smoking. Why? because he's John fuckin Constantine thats why. None of this pussy gum for him.

Well, after tricking the First of the Fallen into healing your body for you, you have to show him the metaphorical finger (after giving him the physical one first) afterwards.

I really rather preferred the comic version of that storyline. I mean, whatever Keanu did, force the Lords of Hell to heal you if they don't want an all-out war with each other is soo much cooler.

Go read Hellblazer, people. It's good.

I second that whole heartedly. Hellblazer rocks your socks...If i recall, the few Issues Grant Morrisson wrote were very good, and had significantly less sodomy than most of his stuff...
