KRAMER’S MEDIA over on YouTube has re-created almost the entire Terminator 2 movie in Grand Theft Auto 5. This is honestly one of the most impressive things I have ever seen someone do with a game engine. The video is almost shot for shot with the original. It even syncs up pretty with with the original audio from the movie. The only thing stopping me from watching the entire video is the voice over. There were a few people requesting a version of it without the Russian dialog, but it sounds like the author is not interested. Someone else could probably make it happen though considering how close to the movie it actually is. I skipped around the video and watched all of the major scenes and was thoroughly impressed and entertained at how close it is. The author also posed a link to some of them models used for the video, which you can find here.
Warren Spector, creative director at OtherSide Entertainment, showed off some pieces of System Shock 3 concept art during Starbreeze Studios’ annual “Starstream” livestream event. OtherSide Entertainment has been officially working on System Shock 3 since last August. Starbreeze signed on to publish System Shock 3 in March 2017. Starbreeze will also invest $12 million to bring the game to PC and other platforms.
There is a lot of great talent over at OtherSide Entertainment. Their CEO is Paul Neurath, who founded Looking Glass Studios. Looking Glass was responsible for great games such as System Shock 1 and Thief. They were also partnered with Irrational Games for the co-development of System Shock 2. Warren Spector was a producer for System Shock 1, and later went on to Ion Storm where he created Deus Ex. Also on the team for System Shock 3 are design director Sheldon Pacotti (Deus Ex, Deux Ex: Invisible War), art director Arturo Pulecio (Warhammer Online, Epic Mickey) and tech director Jason Hughes (Wing Commander, Epic Mickey). Terri Brosius will also be back as the voice of SHODAN.
GDC has posted a great Postmortem for one of the greatest PC games of all time: Deus Ex. This game is easily in my top 10 favorites, and is a must play. If you never checked it out, go pick up a copy on Steam, install the “New Vision” mod, and prepare to be thoroughly impressed by a 17 year old game. If you have already played the game before, consider checking out Deus Ex: Revision community mod. Revision features new environments, new music, and new world-building detail. It also bundles in some of the best modifications that the fanbase has made over the years, including Direct3D 9 rendering, high-resolution textures, high-detail 3D models, and alternative gameplay modes.
