games: Theif 3
Though this game isn't maya related I thought I'd post it anyway.
I'm personaly a big fan of the theif series and if you don't know what I'm talking about read on. Theif is a game where you take the role of Garret, a master theif that gets caught up in a rather dangerous prophecy. The lure of this game isn't in the fact that you can klock people unconcious with a club or steal things, but in tha atmosphere, the theif 1 game wasthe first to use polyphonic sounds. That is, as light bounces off surfaces, so does sound and though the graphics are somewhat odd nowdays the game can really raise some hair on your neck...especialy if you have surround sound.
The soon to be new release of theif 3 is going to be a hit. It contains not only the same great sound system, dark engine (the game engine that lets you loose visibility when in shadows, simulating a 'hiding' effect) but also will contain lip sync, ragdoll technology, expressions, full & proper lighting effects, varied voices and a great plot. Anyone else hard of this game?
BTW: how does ragdoll technology work?
Excuse me while I go outside and laugh.
