James Cameron's Space Hippies vs Space Marines extravaganza would have us thinking avatar technology is the stuff of future dreams. We gamers know better. Simply combine $15 a month, a comfy chair and a disregard for family / work commitments, and successful avatar living can be yours in any number of virtual worlds.
This short film is a must watch for MMORPG fans. The themes on self-identity and immersion in gaming worlds are all well and good. The real highlight though, is seeing World of Warcraft toons seamlessly walking around a Western European city. Epic production values.
