Cyberpunk 2077

As my friends know, I am a big fan of cyberpunk genre and although we are living mostly in cyberpunk era already, we are still lacking one more important thing – cyborgs. We, the humans, are only starting to experiment in this field, which is the major point in all cyberpunk fiction. Like, for example, following trailer of an upcoming game from Polish developers:

I don’t know about the game, but the trailer is definitely, undeniably beautiful. It has the most important things for a cyberpunk – the special atmosphere. And cyborgs.

Thoughts On Deus Ex: HR and the Future of Humanity

I spent few weekends playing the new Deus Ex game – Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I was reluctant to try it, because I have not so much free time these days and I wasn’t expecting anything great, but my friends urged me to play it. Also, don’t forget that this game had some superb trailers. So, I decided to give it a try. Well, the game wasn’t great. It wasn’t bad either. From time to time I was growing tired of the repetitive gameplay: the same long corridors, the same, pretty easy, hacking puzzles, the same “sneak on unsuspecting victim and bring him down” game. But there were two things, which kept me playing: first, I am a fan of original Deus Ex and second – the story was really good, not amazing, but good enough to compel me to write this post.

Cyborgs: Fiction and Reality

Have you ever wanted to have a cybernetic implant, like in the cyberpunk movies? I’m not sure about the limbs, but a brain implant with an access to Internet would come handy on many occasions. Eidos Montreal commissioned documentary video, where they compare cybernetic augmentations, found in their recently released game “Deus Ex: Human Revolution“, to the existing technologies. Very interesting.
