    yeah, but he was the bomb in Phantoms, yo!

    but to add something about blender 3d: thing about it is you can create 3d animations and videos with it. Its a cool program but the problem is, if you want to do 3d animation as a career no one is going to hire you cause you're a blender 3d professional (of course thats not being debated here so its a moot point). but auto desk does put out a learning edition of maya. seems pretty good for a free edition of a software like this. but you can't really make any production quality animation on it because they watermark the rendered product.
    it's available here if you want to take a look.

    and you're looking for the PLE version (personal learning edition).
    i hope this helps you out some.

    Medal of Honor Pacific Assault has a sequence in the Pearl Harbor level that has some cocky airman on the deck of a ship that looks like Affleck. As you approach him he says 'someone get me into a damn plane' and then he runs off towards the bow and gets blown to bits by a Japanese bomb.

    So I get the feeling the designers of the game were dying to make fun of that cheesy line. Quite humorous and a gaming moment I won't forget.

    You can also get GMax which is a free version of 3DS max with some limitations. Also available are Wings3D and Caligari GameSpace Lite. For a good list you can check out the sticky on game development resources.
