Hi! I'm not active on the forums, but I've been a GB-head for a while, and made something recently that I thought might interest some fellow duders.

With the recent influx of horror/thriller films like 10 Cloverfield Lane, Don't Breathe, It Follows, The Shallows, etc., I noticed a recurring feeling amongst the lot: a video game-like logic in their core systems. In this video essay, I explore the simple (aesthetic, action) and complex (structure, choice) ways video games and films (especially of this type) dance around and intertwine with each other, simultaneously influencing one another.

Loading Video...

Aside from the subject of the video, I was highly eager to develop this because of video essays becoming a flourishing new sect of journalism and documentary work. I'm sure a lot of us here support Danny O'Dwyer's noclip (whether literally or spiritually), and the popularity of video channels like Every Frame a Painting, Nerdwriter1, and many others is super encouraging. It's a fun medium!

I hope you guys enjoy my first major foray into the form. But also, let's chat! Did you feel a similar sensation with these films I discussed? Do you know of any more examples? Is this garbage?

Anyway, Happy New Year <3

Pouring one out for this guy. Agree or disagree with him, much like Alex said, he had a strong, interesting voice and mind.

I dont want Episode 3. What I want is Half-Life 3.

I didn't wait since 2007 to get a fucking 3 hour episode.

Or Valve will surprise everyone by announcing Orange Box 2 that contains a sequel to every game they have with a 2 in it and the '3' in the title will be a reference to all of them being in 3D

I can't imagine that if they put out episode 3 that it would only be 3 hours.

It's 2 hours, a majority of such is cutscenes, and in the same old HL2 engine.

I'm ONLY renewing my subscription for the sake of Two and a Half Men. I kinda hate Giant Bomb, really. Not as funny as the Kutch.

The Dad in the trailer looks like Bradley Cooper.

That was the first actor that popped into my head when i read the article.

Or Spike Jonze... but I have grown a liking to Cooper.
