"The New Immersion Paradigm"
"Cliff Blezinski, bless his heart, has no idea what it means to run across a battlefield underneath machinegun fire." This is very true.
Ubisoft's Clint Hocking once again demonstrates the pulsating mega-brain that will hopefully soon result in a game that isn't a weird Far Cry sequel, in this rather special Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab talk. It's from last October, but seems no less relevant for it. Discussed: war movies, hockey fights, Gears of War, Duke Nukem breaking the fourth wall without breaking immersion, how online functionality can augment immersion, and blurring the line between real and fake.
