Watch GitS uno and play Shadowrun Dragonfall if you need a quick cyberpunk fix. Somehow, there aren't many good films with a nice cyberpunk setting, they're usually just "technology!" and include nothing of other themes.

>>52610439
Snow Crash was interesting, and I'd say it fell just a few inches shy of being too descriptive in technical details. Being too specific is what the Blue Ant trilogy did to a fault, and thus aged rather horribly.

Neuromancer is timeless in a sense that it tries to describe the experience and implications of the technology, rather than the technology itself. Replace the almost-fantastical description of what it's like to dive into the net with any modern near-future equivalent (jacking in Matrix style, beaming in like in Tron, etc) and you still have a very vibrant work that isn't too ugly to glance at.
>>
>>52611227
I found the prose in Neuromancer to be too disjointed. I get that it's because the narrator is a fucking junkie who's high on some kind of drug all the time, but it gets really annoying to read.

This fucking movie. In hindsight, I daresay it's pretty damn cyberpunk as hell.

It takes place in near-future with all of the present day moral conflicts intact. There's technology everywhere, from fully automated as-seen-on-brochures houses to full blown androids. But the world outside of the tiny, bubble is grimy and dark both physically and morally.

ok, kid
>>
>>52616235

wats the difference and from whence do you get your definition of cyberpunk?
>>
>>52617210
Buddy, Blade Runner is one of my favourite films but that doesn't make it cyberpunk. I'll explain why below.

>>52617233
Put simply, it doesn't have any "cyber." A very important element of cyberpunk is the oppressive society dominated by computer technology. Artificial intelligence, cybernetics, computers, the internet (cyberspace). The Replicants in Blade Runner are bioengineered, they are not androids and they do not posses artificial intelligence. All the artificial animals like Dr. Tyrell's owl are bioengineered "clones" as well.

It's near future tech-noir with a grimy low life setting. It's got "punk", but it doesn't have any "cyber." To say that Blade Runner wasn't a huge inspiration for the cyberpunk genre would be a flat out lie, but in and of itself Blade Runner is not cyberpunk.

Funnily enough though, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sleep is quintessential cyberpunk novel. Even if the genre didn't exist when it was written.
>>

Pris literally short-circuits

>>52603677

>>
>>52617364
Yeah, it's actually a bit of a plothole. Maybe. The film explicitly defines the Replicants as "A genetically engineered creature composed entirely of organic substance." And Ridley Scott has gone on record and said they are entirely biological in nature.

Whereas the andys in Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep were more like cyborgs. Or Terminators. They have biological parts, but are also mechanical.

>"Roy Batty was an evolved... He wasn't an engine. If I cut him open, there wasn't metal, he was grown... and then within twenty years you get the first bill not passed in the Senate where they applied for replication of animals, sheep and goats and cattle and animals and they turned it down, but if you can do that, then you can do human beings. If you go deeper into it and say 'Yeah, but if you are going to grow a human being, does he start that big and I've got to see him through everything?' I don't want to answer the question, because of course he does... Ash in Alien had nothing to do with Roy Batty, because Roy Batty is more humanoid, whereas Ash was more metal."
Quote from Ridley Scott.

It's weird, but Blade Runner in and of itself does not contain the elements that make something like Neuromancer or Ghost in the Shell "cyberpunk", even if it's source material does.

It has the aesthetic, but that's about it. And even then that's largely because cyberpunk borrows a lot of it's aesthetic from Blade Runner.
>>
>>52617510
I'll add that some people like to call Blade Runner "proto-cyberpunk". Among other things like Asimov's Robot series, Naked Lunch, and other Philip K. Dick novels.

The word "cyber", and the genre cyberpunk itself, was born from Gibson's Neuromancer. And the proto-cyberpunk is essentially works of science fiction that predate the genre, but served as influences and stepping stones towards it.
>>
>>52617350
I believe you're mixing up cybernetics with the cybernetics of computer science. This is an easy mistake, due to the ambiguous 'cyber-' prefix that gets prefixed to many fields of studies within computer science. But mind you, cybernetics is much larger than computer science.

Cybernetics is the study of systems by means of technology. Systems, whether they be mechanical, biological, computerised, sociological, psychological, you name it. Systems, each within their own discipline, can all be studied by the use of technology. Sadly, the media tries to link it all to mainly computer science fields.
>>
>>52617755
I wouldn't call windup girl cyberpunk, it's imo biopunk, granted blade runner is way more cyberpunk but I genuinely think that cyber perhaps refers more to a computer based technocratic dystopia, which I believe blade runner is.
>>
>>52617755
>>52617745
>>52617510
You're not supposed to take the name literally. Cyberpunk does not mean "punks and cyberstuff". There's a guy who claims it comes from a title of a short story he wrote but no one ever cites him

Cyberpunk is not a genre as much as a cateogry of settings characterized by social wealth inequality, social degeneracy, and ubiquitous high-technology. You can call that the punk and the cyber if you want to, but cyberpunk does not necessarily imply a focus on criminal low-lives and computer-tech
>>
>>52617755
I'll admit, my usage of the word is distorted by Ghost in the Shell using it to describe prosthetic and mechanical bodies.

Nevertheless, the mechanical-electrical part of cybernetics can't be ignored. It's a very important half of cybernetics. The Replicants in Blade Runner however have more to do with biology than cybernetics, they're grown not built. The film doesn't go in depth into the workings of a Replicant and their origins, so it's difficult to say what extend the "design process" is. Are they psycholigcally programmed from scratch, or are they imprinted/brain washed shortly after birth? Who knows.

The common misuse of cybernetics to refer only to computer science probably comes from Neuromancer popularizing the word and coining the term "cyberspace" in the early 80s which would later become a household term for the internet.
>>
>>52617926
That's way too narrow compared to what cybernetics is, which is where the the 'cyber-' prefix stems from. However, this seems to be what most people seem to favour due to the media.

>>52617932
>>>52617755 (You)
I'm not claiming 'cyberpunk' equals 'punks and cyberstuff'. I'm discussing the etymology of cybernetics, which is much bigger.

>>52617942
>Nevertheless, the mechanical-electrical part of cybernetics can't be ignored. It's a very important half of cybernetics.
Of course it can't be ignored, but keep in mind cybernetics is larger than just mechanical and electrical engineering. But I think we already agree on this.

>The common misuse of cybernetics to refer only to computer science probably comes from Neuromancer popularizing the word and coining the term "cyberspace" in the early 80s which would later become a household term for the internet.
Yes, this is one such example the common misuse of cybernetics can be attributed to.

What makes cyberpunk special compared to other types of fantasy/science fiction, is how real it feels. Ghost in the Shell (1995) takes place 11 years from now. Where Lord of the Rings and Legend of the Galactic Heroes take place in a world I could never hope to see, Neuromancer feels like it's only a couple decades off.

Hell, in the 90s people thought cyberpunk was here already. Just look at Mondo 2000, that magazine was cyberpunk as fuck.

Perhaps you should look at when Neuromancer was written, then? Or Burning Chrome? Or maybe just put any thought into what you're saying? If people didn't think computers were going anywhere in the fucking 80s, we wouldn't be where we were today. I mean Christ, computers weren't invented in the 90s.

Anyway, since you didn't actually read my post I'll reiterate. It's tech-noir, but more broadly Blade Runner is dystopian science-fiction.

Blade Runner helped shape cyberpunk's aesthetic, but it was not cyberpunk itself.

>>52623479
Incal is more space-opera (like Star-Wars) than Cyberpunk.

This reminds me

Back a few years ago when cyberpunk general was a recurring thread on /g/ I found a link to a very interesting essay about something the author called "the matrix". When entities (governments, corporations, even NGOs and charities) stop existing for their original purpose but only exist because it is in their "programming" to exist simply for the sake of it.
Examples would be the way companies are legally bound to maximize shareholder profit at any cost after they become publically traded, or how Greenpeace isn't about rational environmental protection, bur rather making anything they can into an ideological enemy in an attempt to stay relevant. They become machines whose purpose is self-perpetuation rather than whatever the original purpose was

Another /g/-related example is Mozilla blatantly trying to out-Chrome Chrome for dem user numbers and fucking up everything FF was loved for

Man I used to love GITS:SAC, but after watching the original film it doesn't even come close for me! The world design, cinematography and art/animation is on another level. Modern shit doesn't come close

Stephenson is a hack. Necromancer is the only great novel by Gibson, although Idoru has the interesting computer idols thing but I never bothered to check if he came up with the idea himself.

Cyberpunk is dead. The personal computer revolution happened and the world didn't end. The net was tamed and filled with thirdworld shitskins. Nihilistic optimism for the future is non-existent.

holy fuck is that Düsseldorf?
I'm a Brit who worked there for a while.
I would go down to the river bank, along this path, and do cardio every day by kicking a football against the wall up one of these ramps under a bridge. it would come rolling back down, and i used to try to keep it going for as long as possible, deliberately kicking it to the side to make it harder to change. i used a specific ramp as it was the widest and cleanest, and the one in this video looks eerily similar.

She was born in 86 and is almost 30 if not already. So your accusing someone else of using an old image and then using an old image of her yourself.

She likely looks very different now. All her vids/photos were of her in her early 20s if not younger.

Well shit. I dont suppose emailing the artist and asking for a hi-res or if he'll have any non foil ones produced will be of any good.

Piss.

dont know who the artist is, unless you mean Masamune.
In other words, yeah, Piss

No, I mean his image is old as in "seen it before."
Mine was old as in, she didn't look anything like that picture when she was younger.

The dude in that picture looks like 2012 Rose though, yeah.
>>
>>52626019
The artist for the posters is actually some guy named Martin Ansin.

I dont know a damn thing about him other than that he supposedly said he'd release non foil ones. But I read that on red its while googling and searching my heart out for a non-signed, non-foil variant.

May be worth a shot actually.

So the replicants are biopunk. Whatever.

I've never seen blade runner, but does it not have other high technologies in the hands of lowlife individuals? I always assumed it did, and that's most of what makes something cyberpunk.
>>
>>52617745
Naked Lunch is definitely misplaced on that list.

I don't even. How do you figure it could be?
>>
>>52618138
Romantic novels also shouldn't mean books with kissy bits and turgid members, but it does.

Are you arguing that the genre misrepresents its etymology? Cause that's dumb and not how language works. A sophomore is a wise fool in the greek, but it really means that someone's in their second year of a four year schooling.
>>
>>52618966
Yus.
>>
>>52627502
William Gibson's Neuromancer takes very clear inspiration Naked Lunch. Proto-cyberpunk isn't a real genre, just a term to describe books that helped influence cyberpunk.

Without Naked Lunch there really wouldn't be a Neuromancer, and without Neuromancer there wouldn't be cyberpunk.
>>
>>52623538
Maybe. The underbelly probably is, but the themes of the actual movie seem to fall more in line with more simple dystopian futures like 1984, brave new world, etc.
>>
>>52623538
How would Brazil be cyberpunk? It's dystopian. The whole movie is about paper documents going missing. There's no cyber or even any punk to speak of.
>>
>>52623854
Reminds me of the Feds in Snow Crash since I've been reading it lately.

The US government no longer exists in any form beyond the purpose of information brokerage, a-la nsa. They try so hard to keep up appearances and the illusion of integrity and service to the country despite the fact that they've downsized their facilities to a single office park and sold off washington into being a private tourist attraction.

Ready Player One is literally the essence of nostalgiafags condensed into a jar and ejaculated onto pages.

I honestly can't think of any other way of doing it. Its like someone tried to write a book but the only references they had were Scott Pilgrim vs the world and the original Mad Max.
>>
>>52624111
The intro is utterly trash. Not even funny enough to be satire, really, but it gets better. He loses the job immediately due to the incompetence of fast food employees and their adherence to the all-holy three-ringed-binders of franchising.

Basically turns into cyberpunk dan brown after a while. Make of that what you will.

Still better than Gravity's Rainbow, aka Farts: The Novel.

Is that the movie where the MC was on a dentist torture chair and some guy with a mask came up with a Not!Dentist tool about to jam it in his mouth, and got headshotted?

I saw something like that as a child once and its scarred in my memory and I've got the feeling this might be the movie to relive the trauma.

I'm the anon who said it was better and more fun. The 'more fun' is more about it being playful (the protagonist being named Hiro Protagonist, the rat-thing dog heaven allusions, etc). I enjoyed that stuff, but I say it's better because Gibson's language and pacing is clunky as all get at, not because Snow Crash is more fun. They are two separate thoughts.

Also, this has turned into a pretty damn good thread. Every now and then /g/ pleasantly surprises me.

>MJ12 was originally founded as a SIGINT agency serving the illuminati in the 20th century
>the illuminati itself was lead by powerful members of the elite of 20th century capitalist society. some were public politicians and businessmen. others were less public
>during the cyber bloom of the early 21st century, the old men had grown lazy and lost their edge. they didn't realize the importance of the internet and relating technologies
>this resulted in bob page, current leader of MJ12, to grow increasingly more powerful and increasingly more frustrated with the incompetence/inaction of his peers
