"So I was pondering... Why use all that BORING close captioning as used in 
some of those games like Doom3, when historically there's a much better way 
to visualize the mood of sound effects?

Something comics have been utilizing for decades?

I'm talking about the WHOOSH, WALLOP , CRASH effect balloons. I'm thinking 
of incorperating those in my Heavy on the Magick remake.

What do you think?


I think straight-laced Closed Captioning is the right thing to do for some 
games, but Rogue's "Action Captioning" has got definite potential.
