Cyberpunk is a cyberpunk role-playing game written by Mike Pondsmith and published by R. Talsorian Games in A popular second edition, Cyberpunk .
Table of contents

The pose was quite irreverent in the sense that the expressionlessness face the terminator was sticked to its own posture when bending an enormous black leather jacket with the lifted up collar. But the main artifact belongs to the cyberpunk style that used to hide the damaged prosthetic face and not to re- veal its lunatic and scanning glance was definitely the shades. The image of the T, as a motorbike policeman wearing mir- rored glasses, in the helicopter or when he accesses the police car database is cyberpunk. Even in the moment of arrival of the T in T2 is a scenery bar underlined by the presence of motards all cyberpunks , while the arrival of the T is signed by the murder of a policeman and the appropriation of his uniform, as if both terminators revealed themselves around the power claimed by the characters demand as holders of both cyber and punk elements.

Now, it is relevant to say that the cyberpunk style began its steps in Blade Runner, more precisely when actress Daryl Hannah played a feminine punker android, resembling pretty much the image Vivi- enne Westwood used to have during the punk age. But Blade Runner, as if it was not enough being a movie film that materialized many of K.

Finished in by Ridley Scott, starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer and Daryl Hannah, Blade Runner presented a future in which society was not just addicted in the colored stagings of promotional media, but above all in the nostalgic visions of the past, in its turn seems more and more distant due to the acceleration that matched the present. The film puts at stake pertinent questions as the value of human life, which is present in the scene in which the Nexus 6 replicant Roy Baty Rutger Hauer saves Deckard Harrison Ford of falling of the building, exactly when he en- joys his last and precious minutes of life.

After all, what the replicants wanted was the same man and science was looking for: the prolongation of human existence. Tyrell, of Tyrell Corporation. Tyrell had conceived the androids to be explorers; he is the responsible for the creation of the organic brains culture of the Nexus-6 replicant generation. He also manages to occupy the figure of God, when he denies the prolongation of life to the replicant that blinds him right after no success in obtaining the desired answer to extend his vital time. It looks like creation rebels against its creator, denying paternity, when this one no longer grants freedom to live to the replicant, restricting the lifespan.

Replicants were being misguided to slavery and so, like humans, just wanted to be set free, using what most magical biotechnological engineering had granted to them: the synthetic reason, in the same way Man had been blessed by the existence of his organic reason, the irrational that animals lack of. The entire film plot becomes a war between life and death represented by the two factions: the police and the renegades. That first version showed a dream Deckard had with an unicorn riding wildly in the mist. But was not life as lived by ordinary citizen sicked by atmospheric pollution a sort of simulation too?

The question is that life in Blade Runner is very identified with the nostalgy of the past, the Asian style, the esoteric oriental sound, and the respective pictograms of niponic characters glittering in neons. We observe an entire simulation of the past that appear to reinvent in the present day of the story, hence all atmo- sphere simultaneously kitsch and film noir type side a side with high tech- nologies of street surgery boutiques, where organs for humans and humanoids grew up. However, in these films there was also patent the contrast among policemen and marginals, issue that later happened to be explored in a clever and prof- itable way by the cyberpunk writers, when they showed how both factions managed to access weapons and media.

Blade Runner is one of the most outstanding science-fiction films of the last two decades in 20th century if not the best one , thanks to Ridley Scott, it has been seen a mirror of the prosthetic atmospheres idealized by K. The oriental population circu- lated mostly in bicycles close to hovercars landing anywhere as they drew spirals in the air. It is structured what postmodernism calls posthuma.

And it is precisely under the perspective of posthumanity concept where cyberpunk finds its ambience, scenery that Scott achieved terrificly in Blade Runner, opening doors to the exploration of K. Such imaginary is presented in a way Gibson idealized multidimensional cyberspaces and the vast digital landscapes. These operators project their awareness onto that space, losing completely the notion of space, time, personality and body. Due to its infinite complexity, it would house the most curious and intelligent cybernetic space predators.

The space of the street was the space of alienation of the valuable information, of the wanderer, the black market en- trepreneur; the outside space was a mediatic landscape full of meta-events impregnated by the invasive promotional logistics of Japanese corporations. The era of Akira, the homonymous main character, is a chaotic kingdom and violently hyper technological, marked by a corrosive speed that affects the urban stage with its flows, which is in reconstruction af- ter the Third World War.

The story reveals architecture, communication highways and portable tech- nologies as background for the outlaw-hero of Tokyo city, renewed then in The protagonists are two orphan young men that belong to a motards gang. By existing a strong one and a weak one, it is the weak one who claims Akira. Akira is basically a super-being claimed by Tetsuo — the weakest of the motards duo —, having his own psychological powers.

Besides the story perspective, the cyberpunk universe of Akira is generally an amalgam of per- secutions and rebelliousness typical of a high-tech youth that fights the model of apocalypse with an irreverent attitude. Acting as legitimacy to disorder, the nuclear holo- caust was the situation when it all began. Now it remains as an image after World War Three disintegrated the old Tokyo, now called Neo-Tokyo, popu- lated by immense workers that insist on the reconstruction of public spaces. From the ashes and of the consensual street anarchy, provoked by the holo- caust increases a social maelstrom giant whirlpool involving multinational and illegal street enterprises — such hacker inhabitants of urban ruins.

A very big megalopolis is the place where all action occurs. From the A Deadly Paradox Vol. This gibsonian cyberpunk comic novel is very sharp in design; the glowing lights emerging from the dark spots are its signature. Adobe Photo- shop lights overwhelm all the footage of this Sci-Fi manga where two cops are investigating what makes a series of crimes to happen so violently in Macrop- olis. Revealing an obsession with machines, vehicles and architecture, Dark Minds is the story of a dark, dangerous mind who manages to perform out- rageous killings. All there is what the special investigators try to do, against all odds, is to bring the perpetrator to justice in this new shining city.

Set in www. The police obsession is to catch the dangerous Paradox Killer at once, but despite the weaponry and all the means, evil is always dark, no matter what technology one has at his disposal. The extinction I refer to has nothing to do with dematerialization of the physical bodies, as in situation of being digitized into Virtual Reality, as men- tioned by Gibson, but mostly the metamorphosis towards something defini- tively cybernetic, the purpose of the neo-romantic cyberpunk writers. The figure of the terminator is useful to explain just how high technology inher- ent to the cyborg had to camouflage as being cyberpunk, providing cloaked undetectable prothetic substance of the cybernetic organism.

For this case 12 First being released was the comic version, published by Kodansha International, whose several fascicles were rearranged later by Dark Horse Comics to become one single book. The video motion picture dates from , directed by by Mamoru Oshi, available in Kodansha Ltd. The cyborg was the next step of following evolution. The cyberpunks would absorb for sure, but the aspect of punk, of the traveller, was always more acceptable and discreet; in short, perverse. What the cyberpunk milieu of Ghost In The Shell demonstrated, in a shocking manner from some aspects, was the deconstruction made to the con- temporary cyberpunk figure, hence dis closuring the 90s as a time of permis- sion to the cyborguization, much more than the decade of the 80s, when the cy- berpunk writers sketched the most ambitious visions of technology in relation to urban anthropology.

However, to understand why it is that Kusanagi, the cyborg police woman, goes to the edge of the hill to stare at the twilight, it is necessary to render here a synopsis of the script that Shirow so well designed and more than that illustrated. In the first place, the cyberpunk universe of Ghost In The Shell, in spite of being devoted to the cyborg mythology, like the title indicates, it is rel- ative to something phantasmal that links to something physical, the title of www.

Information update would be a modus vivendi, in other words, a way of life, although it is a reaction of the urban human being to the information overload produced by the megalopolis, from itself to itself. The aftermath of such information overload makes AIs capable of selecting information, hence the omnipresence and omnividence of media.

This AI intends to eliminate the immensity of its living, the eternity, wanted to be mortal, to reproduce itself, but to do so she needed a body, but of a body of the same rank. The cyborg Kusanagi is an elite police officer created for special high risk interventions; she is super sensual and full of weaponry for fight back crime.

Eglee, TV series were not enough to present the whole world of Max Guevara, char- acter played by actress Jessica Alba. Tells the story of this cyberpunk science-fiction universe that somehow everyday life began to run backwards in time in terms of qual- ity of life. Moreover, her angel face does not match her skills or stunts either. The automobile, too, will soon be as obsolete as the cities it is currently strangling. The plot says that, since terrorists detonate an electromagnetic pulse weapon over the U.

Max escapes in from a secret government facility lab codenamed Manticore, where genetic engineered soldiers were being designed, raised, trained and taught by a military program. Their purpose was to be deployed on the battlefield and use their skills to outgun any adversary in combat, being the casualities level decreased due to their enhanced bodies. Short armies would be sent to any theatre of war disregarding an outcome of large armies and casualties. Like Max, many others have escaped and still are at large.

Cyberpunk aesthetics are om- nipresent everywhere in this TV series, from control technology to rebel video- interventions, biotechnology corporations and military genetic engineering, street punk fashion and pop culture items, cyberculture hardware and criminal syndicates. Garbage, mayhem, social chaos and pervasive www. Against corporate power and militarized public space, Max struggles with her friends to find out the whereabouts of her brothers and sisters, only to realize that they are working now for Manticore, tracking down those whose fled the scene a decade ago. The U. As any 20th century paperboy, Max and her co-workers deliver on-demand packages and letters physically, since every electronic medium that now exists is post-pulse; the only thing working well is real mail delivery by bicycle, not by networks.

Hence, the real cy- berspace became a deluxe commodity for a high-brow class that does not face the problems and needs of street-level scavenging gangs.


Even the parts shot at night or in desert avenues resemble Japanese anime movie sequences; this makes Dark Angel a new genre of science-fiction with an imaginary based on Asian iconography as well, though it is shown in a very subtle way. Other relevant cyberpunk elements in Dark Angel are for instance the prosthetics. And besides Logan, the cyberpunk reporter that hacks the TV broad- casts with pirate streams, there is another helpful resistance character that is able to speak only through the mediation of a computerized voice recognition system.

Not only in terms of visuals, but in terms of story, Dark Angel is full of pure Sci-Fi DNA, like the hoverdrones, autonomous robotic flying machines that scan citizens all the time — like the small fan-based drones that search and destroy John Connor in Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines. This film of Carpenter also questioned how the outlaw individual can be necessary to an oppressive social system that repels and arrests him.

No one has doubts about that, but the cyberpunk anime of Ghost In The Shell , altogether with Akira, both award winning titles, are one of the most futuristic and high-artistic quality animation films ever made. In Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence Mamoru Oshii, a ground- breaking original soundtrack completes the atmosphere and mood that Oshii wanted to provide to the audience.

Dickean manner and its images illustrate perfectly the maze- like world of cyborgs and sprawls, militarized public spaces and cyborged humans. Notions of love, affection and attachment are at stake in how Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence focus on the increasingly unnatural world. One of the best parts of the film is that in which Batou finds himself in an assembly line for Gynoids and questions the very notion of mankind in such a place, where images, body and soul can look pretty confusing.

Another moment of the film, one that Oshii too prefers, underlines quietness, as the soundtrack scores peaks high in its chorus, and the helicopter flies-by a gothic cathedral with clouds of birds around it and a folk ritual running on the streets. It looks like a 90s version of the 80s Neuromancer. Nevertheless this film worked out very badly, more like an excuse to clas- sify the unclassifying cyberpunk considering that it has shown cyberspace in a very consistent way, respecting its imaginary. The problem is that this movie, directed by a fine art artist, soon one became seen suppressed without the energetic load and all the free sensation that the voluptuous cyberspaces contained.

The problem in Johnny Mnemonic is that besides the notoriously chaotic and apocalyptic set which was to be expected, due to the spreading nervous illness on people who were exposed to media electromagnetism, all the re- maining elements no longer seem futuristic. The film fails in the sense that nothing in it looks really a portrait of an avant-garde future if we recall that brain implants, memory augmentation and bionics are common to contemporary in the 90s!

These researchers work in the manipulation of the hu- man body with chemical ecstasy for example and technical prosthetics like auditive, contact lenses or plastic surgeries, for instance. We know the 80s were a stage for the great perspectives of Silicon Valley, IBM, Intel and the remaining powerful IT lobbys of the military-industrial complex, now making strong the military-multimedia com- plex, considering Virtual Reality and cyberspace. Not all issues of cyberpunk got lost, some questions made by the literary project got close to cyborg imaginary, but only after the 90s; something like mind merging, en- hanced personalities or the simulated identities.

For instance, the subject of cloning seems to be one of the literary aesthetics ingredients which deserved more media attention. His comic statements were very remarkable. Max was a character that has this insane look, intensively crazy, on his face. The massified image of Max showed him in a nicer version of the an- chor reporter who wore a tuxedo, sunglasses, and smiled to the audience, with a very Californian aspect.

He also was the TV series cyberpunk that has introduced the news speaker as an assumed enter- tainer. But what really branded Max as cyberpunk figure was its own look, carni- valesque, simultaneously artificial and old-fashioned, smiling wide and plasti- cized appearance. One has to con- sider that it was conceived in a Commodore AMIGA computer, at that time the most sophisticated domestic computer for audiovisual ventures, di- rectly responsible for the institution of Virtual Reality as it was known in the 90s.

In this show the anchorman would be computer-generated instead of the habitual puppets animated by many people. Due to its cyber nature, Max soon became, not a puppet inhabiting the television spectrum www. In the end of the millennium according to the script the exact date is 31st December, , Strange Days unfolds a dangerously real street smart universe of characters, all related to the domain of the expe- rience.

This device is mediated by portable media capture subtle helmets called SQUID — a Super Quantum Interference Device — The down part is that these devices could record not only the wonderful, but the horror experiences of its users as well. The hor- ror here is exemplified in experience recording of destructive sex, torture and rapist chasing. It looked, in terms of hardware, like a Sony MiniDisc portable re-writing system, and its users used it to share what they saw and felt in the past at the time and place of the recording. They shared their sight, experience and memory technologically.

The movie actually is full of footage where danger is far more exciting than the ordinary life. Strange Days are the times when the story occurs, dangerous times for the characters who get excited by the possi- bilities of living something new: a technologically-driven and mediated taboo. The addictiveness of hardware recorded subjective imagery happens because it becomes a device to store perversions.

Around the world and back. You just sit still. Now let your mind do the walking. And let my body do the talking. Strange Days reports the danger of exchanging experiences and its weltan- schauungs ways of seeing and feel the world. The digital recording of experiences brings out the will of transgression of mystery, the desire of breaking with eroticism, to get to see what everything is really like. The primeval side of unmediated experience, in pure live, live, uncut14 14 In the neo-romantic fiction, the maximum experience is always has the smallest amount of mediations, especially because usually the access into the digital landscapes is consummated by jack wires.

The whole hard Sci-Fi of cyberpunks looks for the inclusion of digital recorded www. It really feels like we are in the same place, at the same time, because images and sound are interweaved as if we see it now through our eyes in live. At the recording level, death was the same thing as the cut, because the recording stops as the person ends his life.

However, Lenny wanted something uncut, unedited footage as in live shows off-line media. Only the continuous experience would provide pleasure, leaving a slight mark, then re-lived in any suburban cubicle, in clear opposition to life on the street, which became like in the jungle. And in the movie it means the recording of sadistic experiences, it implicates the domain of the horrible. A sort of retro-futurism we may conclude? The racial tensions and xenophobia unload their rages in stateless people, making the city to bow before the chaos and the martial laws, because there is entire legacy of social breakdown that has grown since the eighties.

Welcome to Reddit,

The cyberpunk scenery is actual, fantastic, hypnotic so the presented future is close and tense. The advances of the sciences are so deeply radical, so disturbing, upsetting, and revolutionary, that they can no longer be contained. They are surging into culture at large; they are invasive; they are everywhere. Imaginaries and consciousnesses are both hijacked by new media by-products. The experience in Strange Days exemplifies the interface between modern humanity and its machinery. It is all about how in many ways the technolog- ical landscape can accomplish and mirror the most intimate desires, as pure and simple form of demonstrating to us that we may try something that will be known till the maximum, because it is painful and all that is painful is remark- able and so unforgettable, not perishing in time.

The biblical imaginary is revealed among wild wanderings of police-patrolled crowds regardless of human rights ethics. The police enforcement now has a brand new panoptic tech- nology. The microphysics of power is the video cameras imagery. The whole background of cyberpunk is a stage for clever fight against the eradication of violence, against the omnipresent surveillance. Everyone carries handycams, because it is noticed that there is a total discredit. No even the police believe in the police itself, or in the citizens. Only the great consumers are believed.

Voyeurism grants the social life the characteristics of the pornographic film, in the sense that everything taped gets reconfigured by the new technological gear of image editing. But the boldest concept of the cyberpunk universe is not in the published official movie novel, nor in the film.

Strange Days, in its turn, works like a critic against the last stage of imagery, the plateau without overbearing representations, nor obsolete mediations, state in which www. In its turn, Terminator 2 3-D: Battle Across Time is taking place in Los Angeles, so this time the terminator universe allows viewers to see what the future war would really looked like, involving a small amount of players in its theatre of war. Unlike long length motion pictures, Terminator 2 3-D: Battle Across Time was designed to be seen with 3-D glasses with red and blue lenses, and not VR head-up displays in a live show performance with actors and real stunts on stage at Universal Studios Florida theme park as an attraction for tourists looking for multimedia shows.

In the realm of filmmaking and movie business Termina- tor 2 3-D: Battle Across Time represented a landmark in multimedia entertain- ment.

Once in the auditorium the audience would see the real play unfolding like an extension of the 12 minute short-film narrative, breaking thus the di- vision between real and virtual in a pioneer fashion. Some of the screens introduced the T In itself the film was interesting due to its specificity in showing the future war between man and machines, and also because in this episode John Connor and the T are together again in a paternal relationship of messiah and bodyguard.

The reason behind the running for the elimination of SkyNet, this time only in the future, is because, as a spokesman for Cyberdyne Systems explains before the film begins, the destruction of CS headquarters in T-2 did not stop Skynet, the global satellite defense system, of being built. So we can find awkward why the action takes place in this place, and in this time. Yet this is not enough to make the audience understand, so a fast-paced chase is triggered as John Connor and the T ride the Harley Davidson Fatboy through the apocalyptical nocturne future wasteland.

When the T gets across the time warp and tries to hit John Connor on his back with his deformed blade-shaped arms, the T shoots him back with the shotgun on the chest and then in the head. Undoubt- edly, this part of the pursuit ends, yet another starts right afterwards. A flying HK [Hunter-Killer] chases John and the T while they try to flee from the laser bursts and every building debris is exploding like fire- works. Moments later the motorcycle gets stuck in concrete blocks and the T manages to jump, catching John on the air while falling safely on the ground.

They run for a cover immediately. Searching lights create daylight in the apocalypse night as the aerial HKs hovers around them in an attempt to blow them to pieces with purple laser shots. Demolished buildings, human skulls and other human bones pile up everywhere all the way to SkyNet.

  • Among the debris they stay undetected for a while. After defeating and destroying the small drones, a menacing enemy T in its coverless shiny chrome exoskeleton appearance breaks through a wall scanning for John. Rescued by the friendly T played by Schwarzen- negger John is relieved from the laser sight pointing at his forehead. Altogether both TV se- ries make a noble contribution to cyberpunk Sci-Fi. Dark Angel is a dystopian future, unlike Sci-Fi narratives of special effects, resembling a possible con- tinuation from our present time, while The Terminator always seemed a Cold War based hypothesis.

    In the end of Terminator 2 — Judgment Day Sarah and John witness the self-destruction of the T terminator in the hot liquid metal pool. After destroying the Cyberdyne Systems complex they think they stop SkyNet from being built. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles shows the everyday life that Sarah and John Connor live undercover, staying away from police units and the information grid. Future resistance leader, John Connor, is now a wise teenager and Sarah is still a protective mother, trying constantly to avoid trouble and remain untraceable by government authorities while they seek for those who keep developping all systems that might become SkyNet in a near future.

    Machines have travelled back in time keeping human form to terminate John Connor, the future leader of the resistance. Together they fight to stop SkyNet of ever being created. The battle for our tomorrow starts today! According to the comics of The Terminator franchise, John Connor in the future reprograms a model of the T cyborg and sents him back in time to protect him from the incoming terminators in our present time, the result we can see in Terminator 3 — Rise of The Machines. On the other side, every episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles takes place before that part of the story, when the nuclear war is inevitable.

    In order to keep John alive and safe, Sarah struggles for his best life conditions, yet still manages to get upset by moving from town to town, keeping him isolated, for his own good, from school friends. From the future, bad things come, but the second strong female came this time from the future to protect John from all foes. Her name is Cameron Phillips played by the actress Summer Glau , and she is a brand new termi- nator machine, who looks like a teenager girl on the outside, yet she is as strong or stronger than the former T Now the 15 year old John Connor is going everywhere with her bodyguard terminator, the one whom most of his school friends think to be his girlfriend.

    Raising no suspicions at all, Cameron is able to protect John from the stalking agents of the covert US government project Skynet that are looking for them. John, Sarah and Cameron have hotspots and hiding places full of gear, money and guns to continue traveling to runaway from government agents and incoming termina- tors in this year of What the problem is that in John Connor and his team are wanted by the LAPD for terrorist crimes committed against Cyber- dyne and for other felonies.

    Fortunately Cameron is quite good in protecting them thanks to her cold look and superior design. In the second season things get even more difficult for resistance fight- www. The entire Matrix universe is also backed up by several comics online on the movie Web site. In The Matrix we meet the virtual dimension of the real, then in the sequel Matrix Reloaded we see the war between humans and machines which happens in Zion, being Matrix Revolutions the final chapter of a saga between virotic agents and all powerful Neo.

    It is the purpose of The Anima- trix to explain to us how it all began, like the comics, but the videogames allow us to be Neo, Niobe, or Ghost and play the parallel plots of Matrix Reloaded. This whole new model makes media access differently and try different ex- periences by putting the pieces together then gathered in several media. By playing the videogames the player actually becomes one of the characters and steps into the Matrix itself.

    In a closer inspection we realize that Keanu Reeves is the perfect actor to play the role of Mr. Anderson, a. Besides this, Reeves actually did a neo-romancer role in Johnny Mnemonic as a data courier, and somehow his appearances look interconnected in the cyberpunk cluster of films. The Matrix was also the best Sci-Fi motion picture in decades after Blade Runner, and it demanded a new regime for filmmaking. From the mirror shades, to the leather clothing, the cyberspace sequences and CGI effects, SWAT troops and digital landscapes, all that is seen in The Matrix is cyberpunk.

    Aestheticized char- acters, virtual worlds, non-linear film plot, 3D footage, 3D sound and science- fiction issues turned The Matrix into an icon of the cyberpunk genre, which soon became so mainstream it made impossible to allow the real Neuromancer film to show up soon. One has also to say that The Matrix manages to deliver to broader audiences questions which belong to regular academic contexts, yet the entire films, comics and videogames make it all sound like a pop pastiche, but its not.

    Like the name itself suggests, The Matrix is all about the matrix, a new cyberspace system built with recordings of the world as it was known before the war between man and machines. The problem is 16 Religion is very present in The Matrix Trilogy.

    For example, in the beginning of the film, Neo, still as Mr. Agents were the viral machine presences and its purpose was to wipe out human users on the matrix. In the perspective of Morpheus there is a system of authority figures that enslaves mankind, so the human resistance expects a messiah to come in order to restore the order in a world hijacked by machines with AI. Importing scenography from H. Also The Matrix trilogy tells people to question in a Cartesian way, the very reality known to them, the visible world.

    Morpheus says that a war debris is all that was left, mentioning TV world as a fallacious construct used to make people forget they are slaves. And since the development of AI machines all mankind fell in demise. The search for Neo is because a hacker who is living in a double-life, be- ing Anderson during the day and Neo at night time. Anderson the entire film plot be- comes interlinked with CGI footage till the point no one really knows for sure where did the real stopped or The Matrix began. From the start to the end, The Matrix is nothing but a simulation within an- other simulation, a cybernetic world where machines made by man challenge him.

    The war led to attacking Zion17 , which we see that was hap- pening in the last two films when Neo becomes a sort of Superman character of the digital world. The re- boot of the system would make things get balanced, between the black and white, good and evil, real and virtual, human and machine, and also the male Architect and the female Oracle.

    Cyberpunk The Second Edition, Version 2.01

    Against uniformization every resistance character fights back in The Ma- trix to make things harder for Agent Smith and other cloned AIs he manages to spread virally in The Matrix. As the film shows very well, the The Ma- trix would be no more than a photorealistic imagery-based simulation where everyone could get into in order to do something besides living in the sky- less world of post-holocaust.

    Even if no one really says, The Matrix rescues, fashionably though, the cyberpunk aesthetics from the Johnny Mnemonic disneyesque Sci-Fi. With no agreement with the Laws of Physics, inside The Matrix world nothing is what it seems like and there is more than meets the eye, because The Matrix itself behaves like a videogame.

    Inbound or outbound calls were the way to get linked up with the The Matrix inside the digital world. True cyberpunk is what we see in this sequence when Mor- pheus is questioned by Agent Smith in the upper floors and Trinity and Neo go in there to rescue him. As a matter of fact this sequence is unfor- gettable. As neo steps into the cyberspace and becomes aware of its power he realizes that he is the One as long as he believe he truly is, which means anybody could be whatever they want to be as long as they believe they can.

    Of course this action sequences made everybody dream of being Neo, wearing wide mirror shades, black clothes and cape-shaped gar- ments, in a sort of fashion-outlaw aesthetics. Dick stage. No longer did the cyberpunk ran away from the crowds.

    OpenDime V2: Cyberpunk Credsticks Return (+ Giveaway)

    This film of James Cameron helped to under- line the man-machine and the cyborg imaginary. Besides the biblical narrative understated, transposed to a Sci-Fi world, this film was a revolutionary motion picture at the time, about a new posthuman man, sophisticated and disregard of affection, more closer to machines than to humans.

    The mirror shade aes- thetic is pasted to this dystopian future where cybernetic organisms have easy ways to wipeout human resistance in a post-nuclear scene. Reminding the main images of The Terminator is to remind the cyber- punk characters. The terminator had the chrome gun next to his expressionless face and the large rectangular sun- glasses would set mystery in this image of black, red an blue colors. Some of the most disconcerting action sequences present us a determined cyborg dressed as a street outlaw hiding his cybernetic damaged eye. In the beginning of the film the way the terminator scans the crowd of the Tech Noir looking for Sarah Connor is very impressive.

    But at the end of the film the cyborg heads for the police precinct where, after destroying the electric system, he finds ways to kill everybody while seeing in the dark. At that www. Most of the visual artifacts wore by the T terminator and make him look human, human enough to look at first sight like a high-tech outlaw motard.

    Total Recall was one of those films of the nineties, in this case directed by Paul Verhoeven.

    Interface Zero 2.0 - Savage Worlds Cyberpunk

    The title of films owes pretty much to the narrative of film, whose screenplay had been written inspired in K. But be- cause it is based on a K. Dick story it had to be unveiled in a whirl of realism, conspiracy and humanism. Hence, the virtual can be detected inside, outside, or in-between, like Verho- even explores very well in this science-fiction blockbuster. Another point to remark is that K. Dick mentions Mars because that was his way to criticize the Californian lifestyle of its time. For K.

    Dick, the future of California, adding pollution, mass consumption and environment deterioration would led us to Mars, which is a metaphor of the urban heat, the industrial mutations and glass eyeballs and plastic white teeth of every TV celebrity.
