Beyond the Rhetoric of Pain Berenike Jung 2018-12-20 Beyond the Rhetoric of Pain presents a fresh, interdisciplinary approach to the current research on pain from a variety of scholarly angles within Literature, Film and Media, Game Studies, Art History, Hispanic Studies, Memory Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, Philosophy, and Law. Through the combination of these perspectives, this volume goes beyond the existing structures within and across these disciplines framing new concepts of pain in attitude, practice, language, and ethics of response to pain. Comprised of fourteen unique essays, Beyond the Rhetoric of Pain maintains a common thread of analysis using a historical and cultural lens to explore the rhetoric of pain. Considering various methodologies, this volume questions the ethical, social and political demands pain makes upon those who feel, watch or speak it. Arranged to move from historical cases and relevance of pain in history towards the contemporary movement, topics include pain as a social figure, rhetorical tool, artistic metaphor, and political representation in jurisprudence.

Metal Gear Solid Denis Brusseaux 2017-09-12 La série des Metal Gear figure incontestablement au panthéon des grandes sagas du jeu vidéo. Voilà vingt-cinq ans que l’œuvre de Hideo Kojima nous tient en haleine, grâce à son scénario complexe et très travaillé. Véritable fer de lance du genre des jeux d’infiltration, Metal Gear ressemble à son auteur et nous dévoile un contenu varié, un univers riche, des personnages parmi les plus emblématiques du média jeu vidéo, ainsi qu’un sens poussé du détail et des trouvailles stupéfiantes. Plongez dans l'univers de la série avec cet ouvrage qui en explore toutes les facettes : la genèse de chaque épisode et les anecdotes liées au développement, l’étude du scénario, et enfin l’analyse des mécaniques de jeu et de ses thématiques. Cet ouvrage incontournable offre un panorama complet de la saga culte de Hideo Kojima ! EXTRAIT Kojima prend donc la tête du développement de ce Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake, véritable successeur de l’épisode fondateur. Sorti en 1990 sur MSX 2, le jeu approfondit le gameplay de son aîné sur quasiment tous les points. L’aspect infiltration esquissé avec Metal Gear premier du nom est ici beaucoup plus développé. Déjà, la signature de Kojima commence à se faire très présente : non seulement les idées originales apparaissent à foison, mais l’attrait du père de Snake pour le septième art se manifeste alors clairement (le générique, en particulier, semble très inspiré du cinéma), et le game designer commence à glisser de nombreuses références à ses travaux passés. Un exemple : après la défaite de Big Boss dans Metal Gear, ce soldat a fait l’objet d’expériences visant à remplacer par des prothèses certains de ses membres et organes blessés. Cette opération, qui lui permet de revenir en tant que grand méchant dans Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake, était baptisée « projet Snatcher » dans le scénario, référence directe à un ancien titre de Kojima. Mais beaucoup d’observateurs ont vu dans ce projet Snatcher un clin d’œil au dernier boss de Snake’s Revenge : Big Boss devenu un cyborg ! CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE Metal Gear Solid - Une œuvre culte de Hideo Kojima est un livre que je conseille évidemment à tous les amateurs et connaisseurs de la série, ainsi qu'à ceux qui souhaitent en apprendre plus sur MGS, pour la qualité du travail fourni et le respect de l'esprit de l’œuvre originelle. - À PROPOS DES AUTEURS Passionnés depuis l’enfance par la presse papier, Nicolas Courcier et Mehdi El Kanafi n’ont pas tardé à lancer leur premier magazine, Console Syndrome, au cours de l’année 2004. Après cinq numéros à la distribution limitée à la région toulousaine, ils décident de créer une maison d’édition du même nom. Un an plus tard, la petite entreprise sera rachetée par Pix’n Love, éditeur leader sur le marché des ouvrages consacrés au médium du jeu vidéo. Au cours de ces quatre années dans le monde de l’édition, Nicolas et Mehdi auront édité plus de vingt ouvrages consacrés à des séries phares, dont ils auront eux-mêmes rédigé un grand nombre : Zelda. Chroniques d’une saga légendaire, Resident Evil. Des zombies et des hommes et La Légende Final Fantasy VII et IX. Depuis 2015, ils poursuivent leur démarche éditoriale articulée autour de l’analyse des grandes sagas du jeu vidéo au sein de la nouvelle maison d’édition qu’ils ont cofondée : Third. Juriste de formation, Denis Brusseaux travaille comme journaliste depuis quinze ans et s’est spécialisé dans les deux arts pour lesquels il nourrit une véritable passion : le cinéma et le jeu vidéo. Il a notamment participé aux magazines Joypad et Videogamer et au site DVDrama. Il a aussi coécrit le film Le Guetteur en 2012, avec Daniel Auteuil et Mathieu Kassovitz.

The Making of Tomb Raider Daryl Baxter 2021-12-30 Back in 1994 at the game company ‘CORE Design’ in Derby, Lara Croft was born. Through eighteen months of pure hard work from the team, Tomb Raider was released in 1996 and became the success that we see today; taking part in the mid-nineties celebrations of Brit-Pop and Girl Power. This is the story of the team who were involved in creating the first two games, then leaving the series to a new team in 1998. Lara Croft brought class, comedy, and a James Bondian role to the game, dreamt up by Toby Gard and helped to become a pitch with Paul Douglas. The game was a gamble, but because everyone at the company believed in it, it led to huge success for everyone, except for Toby and Paul. ‘The Making of Tomb Raider’ goes into detail of how Lara and the games were born, alongside why Toby Gard and Paul Douglas left before the sequel was released. Throughout eleven chapters of countless interviews, this book will tell you who was responsible for creating the first two games; from its levels, its music, the many voices of Lara Croft, and much more. The team also reveals all about the star of the second game; Winston the Butler, and how he came to be by Joss Charmet. Over twenty people were interviewed for this story; from the pitch for what would be Tomb Raider, alongside the challenges along the way, up until the release of Tomb Raider 2 in 1997

The Box Man Kobo Abe 2011-12-14 Kobo Abe, the internationally acclaimed author of Woman in the Dunes, combines wildly imaginative fantasies and naturalistic prose to create narratives reminiscent of the work of Kafka and Beckett. In this eerie and evocative masterpiece, the nameless protagonist gives up his identity and the trappings of a normal life to live in a large cardboard box he wears over his head. Wandering the streets of Tokyo and scribbling madly on the interior walls of his box, he describes the world outside as he sees or perhaps imagines it, a tenuous reality that seems to include a mysterious rifleman determined to shoot him, a seductive young nurse, and a doctor who wants to become a box man himself. The Box Man is a marvel of sheer originality and a bizarrely fascinating fable about the very nature of identity. Translated from the Japanese by E. Dale Saunders.

Metal Gear Solid Nicolas Courcier 2019-02-19 The Metal Gear series is unquestionably the pantheon of the great sagas of video games. The Metal Gear Saga is one of the most iconic in the video game history. It’s been 25 years now that Hideo Kojima’s masterpiece is keeping us in suspens, thanks to its complex and deep scenario.

EXTRACT In 1987, Kojima unveiled the first installment in the Metal Gear franchise for the MSX 2. This event would define his life forever. Before continuing with the creation of this franchise, the other works of this games designer deserve some consideration. In 1988, Snatcher was released on the MSX 2 and NEC PC-8801. This adventure game, similar to the interactive graphic novel, was inspired by Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982) and the cyberpunk movement. Kojima’s interest in dense plotlines resurfaced. The game was subsequently remade for the PC Engine CD-Rom2 in 1992, and was enlivened by its use of voice acting. Snatcher was released in Europe and the United States on the Megadrive Mega-CD two years later. Its spiritual successor, Policenauts, appeared on the NEC PC-9821 in 1994, then on the PlayStation and 3DO in 1995 and the Saturn in 1996. For Hideo Kojima, Snatcher and Policenauts were major accomplishments in his career. He has retained a particular affection for these two games, so much so that they are frequently referenced in the Metal Gear series.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Trauma, and History in Metal Gear Solid V Amy M. Green 2017-08-22 This book explores the video game Metal Gear Solid V’s exploration of trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through a careful analysis of its thematic elements and characters. It also considers the game’s complex take on post-9/11 history. Metal Gear Solid V consists of two interrelated titles, Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes is examined as a post-9/11 narrative exploring America’s use of Guantanamo Bay and the extraordinary rendition program as tools in the War on Terror. The Phantom Pain is examined as a work exploring post-9/11 in trauma, especially in returning soldiers. The characters appearing in both games are given substantial consideration and analysis as embodiments of different forms of PTSD and trauma. This book appeals especially to those interested in video game study, to those who are enthusiasts of video games, and those interested in post-9/11 narratives.

The Kojima Code Terry Wolfe 2018-01-08 How far would you go to break the chains of destiny? In the case of HIDEO KOJIMA, way past the point of madness! What else would you call gambling your own multi-million dollar franchise on an elaborate secret scheme to prove you're smarter than your adoring fans? Or creating the biggest media sensation in modern history just so you could spike your own product into the ground and use it as proof that you shouldn't trust advertising?

The Persistence of Code in Game Engine Culture Eric Freedman 2020-04-24 With its unique focus on video game engines, the data-driven architectures of game development and play, this innovative textbook examines the impact of software on everyday life and explores the rise of engine-driven culture. Through a series of case studies, Eric Freedman lays out a clear methodology for studying the game development pipeline, and uses the video game engine as a pathway for media scholars and practitioners to navigate the complex terrain of software practice. Examining several distinct software ecosystems that include the proprietary efforts of Amazon, Apple, Capcom, Epic Games and Unity Technologies, and the unique ways that game engines are used in non-game industries, Freedman illustrates why engines matter. The studies bind together designers and players, speak to the labors of the game industry, value the work of both global and regional developers, and establish critical connection points between software and society. Freedman has crafted a much-needed entry point for students new to code, and a research resource for scholars and teachers working in media industries, game development and new media.
