The recent publication of my Amiga flashback article got me thinking about all the hours I used to waste staring at the amazing graphics and sound demos that came out of the (mostly European) Amiga demoscene. These amazing little drool-inducing lightshows would mesmerize for hours, sometimes, and they were excellent ammunition against clueless PC owners.
Nowadays, MODs and sprites have been replaced by MP3s and OpenGL models, but the demoscene lives. Check out Tranzmit for downloads of a whole gaggle of brand-new demos in the classic style. They are often breathtaking, but somehow, I remember the orginals as even better.
Speaking of cool graphics, check out this video from made from the hot in-development game Halo. It's a GeForce2 GTS ad, believe it or not. Pretty funny.
