Death Stranding Almost Starred Keanu Reeves


Taking the stage at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima stated that Keanu Reeves’ name was floated for a lead role.

According to Kojima, “I originally was recommended Keanu Reeves but I wanted Mads.” This recommendation came from Nicolas Winding Refn, who plays Heartman in the title.

Death Stranding is an action game set in an open world, and will feature the talents of Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Troy Baker, Margaret Qualley, Léa Seydoux, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Lindsay Wagner. The game will come out for the PlayStation 4 on November 8.

Cyberpunk 2077, there is more than cars for you to drive

CD Project Red keeps revealing more information about the world of Cyberpunk 2077 as the development of the game continues at a steady pace. We had also seen V, the protagonist of the game, driving an awesome-looking car through the streets of Night City, but now we get to see him next to a futuristic bike that will delight all the fans of the genre. The incredible Yaiba Kusanagi looks very similar to another bike that fans of anime and all cyberpunk-themed will have in their minds, the one that Kaneda rides in the film Akira. The bike has been shown through a tweet on Cyberpunk 2077’s official account.

It seems that the car and the bike that have been revealed so far could not be the only vehicles that V will be able to drive in the game, or that’s what we can understand from the words of Cyberpunk 2077 lead quest designer Pawel Sasko.

“As a player you’ll be able to own a garage, and in the garage you’re able to store multiple motorcycles and multiple cars. Now all of those are actually equipped with a cool radio, and as a player you’re able to drive around Night City, all those six beautiful-looking districts, and listen to different types of music. So in Cyberpunk you can play the way you want, you can look the way you want, and you can listen to the music that you’d like to listen to.”

V’s car in cyberpunk 2077

Other than the possibility of collecting multiple vehicles for our garage, CD Project Red has also revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will include a Hardcore Mode for those players that want a real challenge. In this gameplay mode, not only the difficulty will be greater, but all kind of visual help from the interface will be removed. On the other hand, those players that are not experienced with first-person shooting games will find themselves at home too, because they will have at their disposal several modes to enjoy a more relaxing game.

Cyberpunk 2077 customizable options and gameplay possibilities seem to cover a wide spectrum to satisfy the needs of all kinds of players. CD Project Red is putting a lot of effort into making their next game something as good as The Witcher 3 if not better. We can’t wait for the game to launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on April 16.

D.H.Zombie Zone Review

The night of the living dead is stacked against the player in Sun&Eyes’s new shooter D.H.Zombie Zone. Gamers are no stranger to blasting away the undead horde, but does this title manage to stand out?

D.H.Zombie Zone Review

Filling the shoes of a comic book seller, players must navigate a number of waves of the undead that are invading his town. Armed with a pistol, an assault rifle, and a handful of grenades, he must blast away anything and everything that threatens his livelihood.

This is a cliche plot that has been seen countless times before, and this title does absolutely nothing to stand out. There isn’t even any text or cutscenes to go off of – what you see is what you get.

Rather, the focus of this title is squarely on the action. Zombies quickly shamble from the left and right side of the screen, and some flying zombies come in from the sky. There’s not a lot of variety though – once players see the regular zombie, the zombie with a bucket on its head, the fat zombie, and the flying zombie in the first five minutes, they’ve pretty much seen everything this game has to offer.

This title does not provide much strategy either. Players are given unlimited ammo, and the same strategy rings too. Use the assault rifle on the small ones and the flying ones, and use the grenade on the fat ones. It gets repetitive fast, and the fact that waves go on for far too long means that players will be dragging their feet, beginning for some variety. Players can collect coins that are dropped by fallen foes, but other than a single achievement, these little things do no good. There are some other achievements to be had in this game, but most players will be able to unlock everything in a single playthrough if they are adept enough.

There are a few crates that fall from the sky that offer the players some advantages. Full HP and full grenades are a given, but occasionally a “kill ‘em all” message will appear, which instantly wipes out everything on the screen. There’s not much balance to these crates either – there were times where we got three HP ones in a row, right when they were all lined up next to one another.

Note that this game is pretty buggy. Players can jump, but it instantly causes damage to those trying to get past zombies. In addition, guns will not work when the enemy is too close in range – if something gets up in your business, you might as well restart. There are times where enemies will all group up on the player at once, taking out most of your health in a matter of seconds. It’s cheap, and it proves that this title is poorly designed.

D.H. Zombie Zone lacks the creative touches that have made more popular zombie shooters stand out. Fighting against the endless waves of the undead quickly proves to be a mindless affair, something that resembles its zombie horde.

This review of D.H.Zombie Zone was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

Rainbow Six Quarantine is confirmed to arrive before Spring

Rainbow Six Quarantine was revealed during E3 2019, and it’s a cooperative tactical shooter for three players that follows the steps of Rainbow Six Siege. There is no official release date for the upcoming title in the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series yet.

Rainbow Six Quarantine was initially announced to be released early 2020, but Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed during the company investor’s call that the new game will be released before the end of the fiscal year. For those that don’t know anything about the world of finances, that means that the game will most probably be launched sometime between January 1, 2020, and March 31, 2020, if we don’t consider any possible delays.

In Rainbow Six Quarantine, a group of three Operators has to deal with the threat of a technological parasite. The game takes inspiration from the Outbreak event from Rainbow Six Siege. This event was introduced during the Operation Chimera expansion and allowed three players to travel to New Mexico to deal with the consequences of an epidemic outbreak in a little town. The description of the game on Ubisoft’s shop says the following:

“The Rainbow Operators will face off against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite. Infecting human hosts and their surroundings,
this new enemy is more lethal and challenging than ever before. Prepare to launch into tense, chaotic, and totally unpredictable missions as you and your squad risk everything, every time you step into Quarantine.”

It is yet to be seen if this new take on the Rainbow Six Siege experience which has competitive PvP as its primary allure will be interesting enough for the fans of the franchise. We will have to wait until the release date of Rainbow Six Quarantine gets much closer, and more information about the game is revealed to find out about the expectation it manages to raise among the players.

ASCENDANCE: First Horizon Review – bigg brian gaem

Story 334125693

Now… I’m a fan of walking simulators, moreso than the average human being.

 

I give Dear Esther some of the credit it deserves. My favorite game of all time can begrudgingly be called a walking simulator. However, there’s a flip-side to that notion, with walking simulators recently being nothing but tone-deaf dreck. Where The Bees Make HoneyTyd wag Vir NiemandStorm Boy, and now ASCENDANCE: First Horizon are the walking simulators to end all walking simulators.

 

This is the latest title from German developers ONEVISION Games. They’ve made a name for themselves by doing what similar German developer Piranha Bytes does: releasing the same game. While Piranha Bytes relish in re-releasing Gothic II under different skins, ONEVISION have done the same with a “Surreal First-Person Exploration” formula, with titles like ESSENCE, ASCENDANCE, and the soon-to-be-released DYSTOA. You don’t know whether you’re buying a video game or perfume.

 

An in-game screenshot of ASCENDANCE: First Horizon, showcasing an orange-hued temple.

 

There’s no plot, and that’s to be expected. You play as a vague human shape, stuck in small, undeveloped ruins surrounded by fluorescent landscapes that pierce the eyes with light. You walk up to floating orbs, and what do they offer? More of the level to explore! Hold on, Sonny Jim, the rollercoaster ain’t over yet! As you get higher and higher while touching more and more floating orbs, the platforms will become tougher to reach, which… honestly surprised me.

 

For once, a walking simulator is taking into accounts that the path forward isn’t always going to be laid out. It’s much more validated than something like Shape of The World, where the progression is halted by a lack of clairvoyance in level design and shit aesthetic presentations. ASCENDANCE suffers from that as well, but it has more in common with the game Refunct: The 2015 10-minute platformer from Dominique Grieshofer.

 

The similarities are there. Levels slowly expand upon collection of random collectibles dotted about the map. There’s an emphasis on rising up in the world to reach transcendental perfection, and similar endless horizons punctuated by a sense of feeling and becoming ethereal. It doesn’t make sense, and it’s not supposed to, but Refunct definitely knew to stay in its lane.

 

A screenshot of ASCENDANCE: First Horizon, showcasing a purple land filled with bright streams of white light.

 

Say what you will about a ten-minute game with only one level and a price tag of $3, at least it never lied to you about what it was. It knew it was a small adventure that never hesitated to welcome you. It was a small experiment that was designed well enough to warrant what some might consider to be a hefty price tag. ASCENDANCE doesn’t really deserve the same clout, despite more content, because its main goal is to patronize you.

 

ASCENDANCE is the equivalent of a scam guru who asks that you pay a small fee for his advice and insight, because to not pay would mean that you wouldn’t understand it. The few nuggets of “wisdom” that ONEVISION attempt to force down your throats are so poorly-written and pretentious, it feels like a 16-year old Amazing Atheist fan rewrote The Holy Mountain.

 

Take the shapes, for example. Aside from orbs that expand the platforming playground you’ll partake in, you also …

Have You Heard Of Clonezilla?

It’s a cute name. However, Clonezilla is more than just a cute name. If you haven’t heard of it, here’s what Clonezilla is all about.

Clonezilla is a free and open source disk partition and image cloning program. You can use Clonezilla for system backups, full drive clones, system deployments, and more. Furthermore, it supports an enormous range of file systems, as well as multiple boot loaders, encryption, and more.

(Via: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-use-clonezilla/)

So, if you’ve just bought a new computer and you’re thinking of moving your old files to it, Clonezilla is a good option.

When you buy a new computer, you have to move your old files to your new system. Copying folder after folder, file after file is tedious. Thankfully, you can use Clonezilla to clone your entire drive to a new drive. Drive cloning with Clonezilla is fast, simple, and best of all, completely free.

(Via: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-use-clonezilla/)

Now, before you start cloning your Windows 10 drive, you have to check the capacity of your second drive.

Please note that to clone your Windows 10 drive, your second drive must have an equal or larger capacity to your current storage. For instance, if you want to clone a drive that is using 60 GB storage, the recipient drive must also have at least 60 GB available for a complete clone.

(Via: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-use-clonezilla/)

The first thing you need to do is to download Clonezilla. Here’s how you can do it.

You will need a USB flash drive to download Clonezilla. You can make the download quicker with a USB 3 16 gigabyte but you really use any USB for it. Now, go to Tuxboot.org. Then click on the download link on the side.

Once that’s done, go to your download folder to run the executable file. Click on the default option, which is the Clonezilla live version. To avoid overwriting an SD or another thumb drive, make sure to select the USB drive that you’ve inserted. Click “Okay” to download Clonezilla.

You can also create a bootable USB drive with Rufus.

To create your bootable Clonezilla USB flash drive, you need a 1 GB USB flash drive (or larger). You also need handy little bootable USB flash drive tool, Rufus. (Here are some other tools you can use to make a bootable USB flash drive.)

Please note that creating the Clonezilla bootable USB flash drive will completely wipe any existing data on your drive.

Here’s what you need to do:
1. Head to the Rufus homepage. Download and install the latest version.
2. After installation, open Rufus. Make sure to insert your USB flash drive.
3. Select your USB flash drive under Device.
4. Under Boot selection, press SELECT. Browse to your Clonezilla ISO download location and hit Open. Rufus will automatically input the correct options to create a bootable USB flash drive. Change the Volume Label to something more memorable if you want.
5. When ready, press START.
6. Rufus will detect an “ISOHybrid” image. Continue to Write in ISO Image mode.

Clonezilla is a small ISO. Therefore, the bootable USB flash drive creation process doesn’t take long.

At this point, you should connect your second hard drive to your system and make sure it

How to Upgrade Debian 9 (Stretch) to Debian 10 (Buster) via Command Line

Hello All!!!, Good to See you! So we saw how to install Debian 10(Buster) in the previous article. Today, we are going to learn how to upgrade from Debian 9 to Debian 10. Since we have already seen about Debian 10 and its features, let’s not go deep into it. But readers who didn’t have the chance to read that article, let’s give a quick update about Debian 10 and its new features.

Upgrade-Debian-9-to-Debian-10

After almost two years of development, the team at Debian has finally released a stable version of Buster, code name for Debian 10. Buster is a LTS (Long Term Support) version and hence will be supported for the next 5 years by Debian.

Debian 10 (Buster) – New Features

Debian 10 (Buster) comes packed with a lot of new features which could be rewarding to most of the Debian fans out there. Some of the features include:

  • GNOME Desktop 3.30
  • AppArmor enabled by default
  • Supports Linux Kernel 4.19.0-4
  • Supports OpenJDk 11.0
  • Moved from Nodejs 4-8 to Nodejs 10.15.2
  • Iptables replaced by NFTables

and a lot more.

Step by Step Guide to Upgrade from Debian 9 to Debian 10

Before we start upgrading to Debian 10, let’s look at the prerequisites needed for the upgrade:

Step 1) Debian upgrade prerequisites

  • A good internet connection
  • Root user permission
  • Data backup

It is extremely important to backup all your application code bases, data files, user account details, configuration files, so that you can always revert to the previous version if anything goes wrong during the upgrade.

Step 2) Upgrade Debian 9 Existing Packages

Next step is to upgrade all your existing packages as any packages that are tagged as held back cannot be upgraded and there is a possibility the upgrade from Debian 9 to Debian 10 may fail or cause some issues. So, let’s not take any chances and better upgrade the packages. Use the following code to upgrade the packages:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

Step 3) Modify Package Repository file (/etc/sources.list)

Next step is to modify package repository file “/etc/sources.list” where you need to replace the text “Stretch” with the text “Buster”.

But before you change anything, make sure to create a backup of the sources.list file as shown below:

[email protected]:~$ sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak

Now use below sed commands to replace the text ‘stretch‘ with ‘buster‘ in package repository file, example is shown below,

[email protected]:~$ sudo sed -i 's/stretch/buster/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
[email protected]:~$ sudo sed -i 's/stretch/buster/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list

Once the text is updated, you need to update the package index like shown below:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt update

Before start upgrading  your existing Debian OS , let’s verify the current version using the following command,

[email protected]:~$ cat /etc/*-release
PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
NAME="Debian GNU/Linux"
VERSION_ID="9"
VERSION="9 (stretch)"
ID=debian
HOME_URL="https://www.debian.org/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://www.debian.org/support"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.debian.org/"
[email protected]:~$

Step 4) Upgrade from Debian 9 to Debian 10

Once you made all the changes, it is time to upgrade from Debian 9 – Debian 10. But before that, make sure to update your packages again as shown below:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

During packages upgrade you will be prompted to start the services, so choose your preferred option

Once all the packages are …

Devolver Bootleg Review — Devolver mi Dinero

Story 333824809

Yeah, I know, it seems like a cheap shot but I put down my $4.94 for Devolver’s postmodernist charade and dammit I’m gonna get my two cents (retained via the 1% off deal) in. Beneath the unending veils of irony and tongues in cheeks, I’m generally a fan of demakes. That goes for formal homebrew exercises like Halo for Atari 2600(!) or just downloadable retro would-be’s like Smaze (the reinvention of Haze into something worth playing). So despite the high chance that Devolver Bootleg would sprint way past the line of cynicism towards what’s commonly called a scam, I was curious to see how Devolver could double down on the retro flourishes their productions regularly traffic in.

 

Unfortunately, the bulk of what we have boils down to time better spent browsing itch.io, as Devolver Bootleg treats general clunkiness as the defining factor of demakes (may a choir of “It’s supposed to be bad!” rain down upon me) instead of imbuing the form with creative use of its constraints. You will no doubt smirk once or twice at the visual gags on display, but will moreso be taken aback by how lumbering the bulk of the gameplay is. None of the micro demakes here truly transcend their source material and would barely pass muster as a GBA port.

 

Nonetheless, there is a narrow spectrum of quality present amongst the eight titles, with Ape Out Jr. coming out ahead overall. As implied by the title, Ape Out Jr. grafts the people tossing bonanza of Ape Out onto the design of Donkey Kong Jr. It’s a decently rewarding mashup, even with the inability to reset levels making it easy to break the game in a segment like “Round 3”, where you can jump down to the end of the level before killing every enemy and have no means to either finish the job or reset the level through dying. There is also the persistent fetishization of clunky mechanics present, though in this instance, it’s perfectly in line with the gameplay of Donkey Kong Jr. and unfolds at a methodical enough pace to make the mechanics fairly workable. As its own dollar purchase, Ape Out Jr. is a decent curiosity that ever so slightly changes things just enough throughout to justify its half-hour length.

Well… it’s not worse than Donkey Kong Jr.; Courtesy of Steam

Super Absolver Mini: Turbo Fighting Championship only offers you one fighting stage for your troubles, but benefits from local multiplayer, allowing the stilted mechanics to be fodder for some cheap laughs albeit still not very rewarding to play. Meanwhile, Pikuniku Ball-Stars is a strangely faithful recreation of grade school browser game classic Super Slime Soccer that can be beaten in ten seconds! The Super Mario Bros 2indebted visual design, however, is a highlight here, along with the shift towards more fluid animation (albeit still paired with very binary control) adding a dose of chaos that would have enhanced the amusement of the other titles in here tenfold.

 

Luftrousers 3 largely plays things too straight, mirroring the presentation of Luftrausers while merely limiting movement capabilities to reduce the game to a Defender knock off. For what it’s worth it’s an adequate Defender knockoff, but …
