Little Nightmares 2 will be a solo game

Unveiled a few days ago at the Gamescom 2019, Little Nightmares 2 has created a surprise among players. Just like the first Little Nightmares, the game is developed by Tarsiers Studios, to whom we also owe the Little Big Planet series released by Bandai Namco.

In the first installment, we played as Six, a girl trapped in the Den, a strange boat-hotel for the rich which dreams only of one thing, devouring them. Six does not have any power or special ability and to escape from the Den the player can only rely on his gray matter to solve puzzles, while not letting himself be overwhelmed by his fears.

Little Nightmares 2 is going to follow the same line. After the trailer unveiled at the Gamescom, we have learned more about the game through a developer interview by Gaming Boulevard. In the trailer, we have seen that after having managed to escape the Den, Six will have to explore the outside world but she will not be alone. Indeed, a new character called Mono makes his appearance and it is also him that we will control in Little Nightmares 2.

Mono and Six can interact to overcome obstacles or face their enemies but Six will be controlled by an AI. She may be asked to perform certain tasks, such as activate a mechanism, so she will obviously not be a completely passive character. She may judge that some actions are irrelevant, and may even take the lead sometimes.

Little Nightmares 2 – School day for Mono and Six

Another question to which this interview responds is about the game in co-op. With two characters, we could expect that it would be possible for two people to play, but it will not be the case. That’s what the developers said about it:

“We had considered coo-op in the beginning, as there are two characters, but that would have been a bad choice.”

The reason given is that Little Nightmares 2, like its predecessor, plays on the player’s fears, often inspired by childhood, and maintains a permanent tension. allowing two players would have somewhat distorted this atmosphere. The game should, however, have new features, and we should learn more about the world in which Little Nightmares 2 takes place.

No release date has been confirmed but we know that the game will be released in 2020. Little Nightmares 2 will be released on all platforms at once, so Switch players will not have to wait longer than others this time.

DotA 2 introduces two new heroes

The competitive multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) from Valve continues being one of the main references in the genre since it launched in 2013. DotA 2 is expanding its characters roster with two new entries that will be playable once the upcoming Outlanders update launches. Although they are expected to be playable this fall, we don’t know when exactly the patch will arrive but you can already watch the introductory videos for Void Spirit and Snapfire.

Void Spirit is the fourth of the elemental Spirit brothers. He appears to be able to teleport and masters the powers of the void, and goes into combat wielding a double-edged spear, but we will have to wait a bit longer to see more of his abilities.

Snapfire looks quite cool. She is the kind of grandma that you would like to have if you were a red goblin and you loved DotA 2, an older lady that rides a fire-breathing lizard and who is able to buff her teammates with the cookies that she bakes. She wields a triple-barreled shotgun to defend herself from pesky opponents and cookie thieves.

If you are one of those dedicated DotA 2 players out there you have probably been watching The International 2019 this weekend. The championship awarded esports largest single-event prize pool with $34,103,341, almost $10 million more than last year’s purse. OG managed to be victorious this year becoming the first team that manages to win the championship on two consecutive years.

We don’t know yet if Valve will be releasing any other characters for DotA 2 this year, but we anticipate that Void Spirit and Snapfire will give the professional players enough of a headache to adapt their strategies once their skill sets are revealed. In any case, whether you are a professional player or not, both characters look quite amazing and fun to play. You just will have to wait a bit longer to try them.

Blizzard removes the 3 characters per server limit on WoW Classic

One of the most anticipated days of the year has finally arrived. World of Warcraft Classic‘s launch day is here and hundreds of thousands of players are expected to start adventuring in Azeroth as it was when the game originally launched in 2004. Blizzard has been taking care of the increasing demand since they opened the servers for name reservation. The massive amount of players that have created characters ahead of the launch has caused a few new servers to be opened, but insanely huge queues are still expected to happen.

In an attempt of giving the players more options, Blizzard has removed the previous character limit of three per account and now players will be able to have 10 characters per realm when World of Warcraft Classic launches in a few hours. They have asked the players to give preference to the servers that are not already full when choosing the realm they will be playing at.

“We urge players on realms marked Full or High to plan to play on one of these new realms to avoid the longest queues, and to help spread the player population as evenly as possible and provide the best play experience for everyone.

You can expect Blizzard to apply a few more measures regarding the server’s overpopulation at launch because most of the time people don’t like to change their preferred server. If you plan to play with your guild or friends, which is quite common, all of you would have to move to a different server. Also, there are some languages not supported initially on World of Warcraft Classic, for example, Spanish. That means that the Spanish community will probably pick a certain server to play and they will chat in Spanish on public channels, something that if not forbidden, could be potentially annoying to some of the English-speaking players.

World of Warcraft Classic – Where are all the boars?

No matter what happens, if you plan to play as soon as World of Warcraft Classic launches today, you are bound to see long queues, but if you are as eager to play as we are, you probably know that already and will have enough coffee ready to help you with the waiting.

Control Review – A Treasure Trove

505 Games and Remedy Entertainment promise a deep and mysterious dive into a world of Parapsychology and objects that defy the very laws of our universe with the release of the third-person action adventure Control. Alan Wake, Max Payne 2, and Quantum Break are just some of Remedy Entertainment’s most beloved games, combining deep narratives with reality-bending combat and rewarding progression. The question is, do they manage to build on the success of past creative directions with this release?

Control Review

Control follows the story of Jesse Faden (Courtney Hope) as she battles to lift the veil on an unknown and mysterious government agency, the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC). She does all of this in an attempt to locate her lost brother, Dylan. The FBC is a secret branch of the government tasked with locating Objects of Power and maintaining control over Altered World Events. Their base of operations, known as The Oldest House, is an ever-changing, constantly shifting building that remains entirely hidden from those that have yet to discover its existence, even when based in the middle of Manhattan.

Confused yet? We’ll get there.

In the build up to release, 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment demonstrated Control’s fluid, supernatural infused combat in nearly every trailer. While its combat is admittedly a fantastic feature of the game, the story is where the title really shines.

Control Review

Control’s delivery of its narrative is multifaceted in the most wonderful of ways. Cut-scenes and dialogues with NPCs, hidden bits of lore and detail in collectibles, projectors that play brief videos as you approach…it’s a story with as much depth an intrigue as the time you’re willing to invest to explore it. The script and dialogue are fantastic from start to finish, and Dr. Darling, a key character and top figure of the FBC organization, is a true credit to the work of Matthew Poretta. I often overlook optional lore and collectibles in games, mostly because they are too far detached from the overall experience or delivered in such a way that I struggle to maintain interest.

However, that was not the case in Control. I watched every video of Dr. Darling that I discovered, I read every data entry relating to the mysterious Objects of Power and Altered World Events. Behind each situation that occurred in the game was a buffet of story, character development, and plot detail. Even ignoring all of the optional elements of Control’s story, it’s a thrilling tale that will keep you engaged and yearning for more, even after the final credits role.

Control Review

The story itself is a combination of my favorite Warehouse 13 episodes with a hint of X-Files. It’s science-fiction told in such a way that its ties to reality leave that ever lingering question: What if? Throughout the game, Jesse discovers unique Objects of Power. These can be anything, from a mysterious French Pram that emanates smoke without a known source, to a swan boat that launches anyone that attempts to sit inside it. These objects can be comical in nature as much as they can be murderous. Diving deeper into the backgrounds of these mysterious objects even ties some to real-life events, such as the “sonic attack” incident on the US Embassy in Cuba.…

How to Install Ansible (Automation Tool) on Debian 10 (Buster)

Now a days in IT field, automation is the hot topic and every organization is start adopting the automation tools like Puppet, Ansible, Chef, CFEngine, Foreman and Katello. Out of these tools Ansible is the first choice of almost all the IT organization to manage UNIX and Linux like systems. In this article we will demonstrate on how to install and use ansible tool on Debian 10 Sever.

Ansible-Install-Debian10

My Lab details:

  • Debian 10 – Ansible Server/ controller Node – 192.168.1.14
  • CentOS 7 – Ansible Host (Web Server) – 192.168.1.15
  • CentOS 7 – Ansible Host (DB Server) – 192.169.1.17

We will also demonstrate how Linux Servers can be managed using Ansible Server

Ansible Installation on Debian 10 Server

I am assuming in your Debian 10 system you have a user which has either root privileges or sudo rights. In my setup I have a local user named “pkumar” with sudo rights.

Ansible 2.7 packages are available in default Debian 10 repositories, run the following commands from command line to install Ansible,

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt update
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt install ansible -y

Run the below command to verify the ansible version,

[email protected]:~$ sudo ansible --version

ansible-version

To Install latest version of Ansible 2.8, first we must set Ansible repositories.

Execute the following commands one after the another,

[email protected]:~$ echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ansible/ansible/ubuntu bionic main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 93C4A3FD7BB9C367
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt update
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt install ansible -y
[email protected]:~$ sudo ansible --version

latest-ansible-version

Managing Linux Servers using Ansible

Refer the following steps to manage Linux like servers using Ansible controller node,

Step:1) Exchange the SSH keys between Ansible Server and its hosts

Generate the ssh keys from ansible server and shared the keys among the ansible hosts

[email protected]:~$ sudo -i
[email protected]:~# ssh-keygen
[email protected]:~# ssh-copy-id [email protected]
[email protected]:~# ssh-copy-id [email protected]

Step:2) Create Ansible Hosts inventory file

When ansible is installed then /etc/hosts file is created created automatically, in this file we can mentioned the ansible hosts or its clients. We can also create our own ansible host inventory file in our home directory,

Read More on : How to Manage Ansible Static and Dynamic Host Inventory

Run the below command to create ansible hosts inventory in our home directory

[email protected]:~$ vi $HOME/hosts
[Web]
192.168.1.15

[DB]
192.168.1.17

Save and exit the file

Note: In above hosts file we can also use host name or FQDN as well but for that we have to make sure that ansible hosts are reachable and accessible by hostname or fqdn.

Step:3) Test and Use default ansible modules

Ansible comes with lot of default modules which can used in ansible command, examples are shown below,

Syntax:

# ansible -i <host_file> -m <module> <host>

Where:

  • -i ~/hosts: contains list of ansible hosts
  • -m: after -m specify the ansible module like ping  & shell
  • <host>: Ansible hosts where we want to run the ansible modules

Verify ping connectivity using ansible ping module

[email protected]:~$ sudo ansible -i ~/hosts -m ping all
[email protected]:~$ sudo ansible -i ~/hosts -m ping Web
[email protected]:~$ sudo ansible -i ~/hosts -m ping DB

Output of above commands would be something like below:

Ansible-ping-module-examples

Running shell commands on ansible hosts using shell module

Syntax: # ansible -i <hosts_file> -m

Throwback Review: The Witcher

Story 339667533

The Witcher is an Action RPG developed by CD Projekt Red, released on PC in 2007. The beloved series has been played by many, but I wanted to explore CDPR’s first outing. I tend to find that the first game doesn’t get nearly as much attention as the other two, most likely because of its PC exclusivity.

Let it be known that I am playing The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, a version of the first game that came free to buyers of the original. The enhanced edition added a few improvements, most notably a plethora of new character animations and a larger variety of color to NPC clothing.

The Witcher is based on a series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. Sapkowski’s books are a household name in Poland, with some referring to him as Polish Tolkien. I am a big fan of The Witcher series as a whole, so I was excited to see how the first game holds up today. I was also looking forward to seeing how CDPR would adapt the rich world of The Witcher into a video game.

 

Adapting Sapkowski’s World

Unlike most book adaptations, The Witcher doesn’t directly re-tell the stories from the books, with the game’s narrative being set after their events. The game has you playing as Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher who has recently lost his memory. A Witcher, to put it briefly, is a mutant who kills monsters for money. At a young age, they are experimented on and are trained to kill. While amnesia in fiction is quite a tired trope, I feel that CDPR made a good decision having Geralt lose his memory; it allows the player to learn about the world along with him. There are a plethora of characters from Geralt’s past that book readers will recognize, a lot of the dialogue involves them re-introducing themselves to our forgetful Witcher.

The Witcher Geralt of Rivia talks while facing camera

The big bad of The Witcher is a gang called Salamandra. After Salamandra attack the Witcher fortress of Kaer Morhen, Geralt travels in and around the capital city of Vizima to hunt down their leader. Headed by powerful Fire Mage, Azar Javed, the Salamandra lead our hero into somewhat of a wild goose chase. Along the way, Geralt gets himself into a wide range of sticky situations, never failing to insert himself into some sort of trouble in typical RPG protagonist fashion. In saying that, one of the most unique things about this game is its theme of neutrality. As the conflict between humans and nonhumans rages on, the player can choose not to take a side and stick to what Geralt knows best; killing monsters.

 

The Price of Neutrality

There are a few points in the game that allow players to choose a side, however, there isn’t always a clear choice, unlike in other similar titles. There’s no “good” or “bad” option here, the game leaves it up to the player to choose what they think is the lesser evil. Grey morality is a familiar concept nowadays but was definitely less common when The Witcher came out in 2007.

More unique though, is the true struggle I felt when having to make a decision. I tend to find that when …
