most immersive moment in a computergame

The day before yesterday I got Half Life 2 (HL2) and installed it in the afternoon. Although Steam is kind of embarassing it worked fine. Then, still being in the office, I started to play it. And I have to say it is absolutely amazing, stunning, and whatnot. In the evening I continued to play until 2AM yesterday. I do not yet know how to make screenshots ingame, but I definitely have to work that out. There was one scene/incident in a concrete water-reservoir, diving in the water, a corpse of a killed combine-policeman floating above me, and the bubble … Continue reading

visual jack in

“A half century of artificial-sight research has succeeded. And now this blind man can see,” ↑reports Wired with an impressive, well written story about an american laboratory, which is working with cameras that bring vision directly by cables into the brain of a blind man: From a few steps closer, I see that the wires plug into Patient Alpha’s head like a pair of headphones plug into a stereo. The actual connection is metallic and circular, like a common washer. So seamless is the integration that the skin appears to simply stop being skin and start being steel.     … Continue reading

masterfusion

Masterfusion, leader of the mod-project ↵Matrixed Reality has published a comment wherein he states, that he plans to switch engines: Hey guys, perhaps you have noticed that I didn’t update my site in the last time and didn’t show any new stuff. Well, I thought about which features to add in the next version, but everytime I had a cool idea I had to recognize that the limitations of the modding-system in Max Payne don’t make it possible to include. This pissed me off, so I finally decided to change the engine and continue with Matrixed Reality by making a … Continue reading

matrixed reality

There is yet another Matrix-mod for Max Payne in the making: Matrixed Reality. The team-leader is Masterfusion—seemingly from Germany or Austria. The Neo-model looks very good, far more similar to Keanu Reeves than most others I have seen. One of the mod’s features will be a ‘new level selector. It will be a level, the loading-room of The Matrix. Everything will be white (like in the movie) and Neo will say ‘I need guns…lots of guns’. Then you will be able to collect a lot of weapons and go to a telephone and change to the level you want to … Continue reading
