Chain, keep us together: F1 2017 released

F1 2017 [official site], Codemasters’ latest annual adaptation of The Chain by Fleetwood Mac, roared off the grid this morning. Once again, the avant-garde artgame uses fast cars to represent throbbing basslines and lyrical concepts such as running in the shadows, damning your love, and damning your lies. I can’t say I feel Codies’ interpretation in my heart own but hey, who am I to judge how a song feels to them? You can’t say they don’t commit to the metaphor, as they’ve released an update every year since 2009. And if you don’t love me now… Read the rest of this entry »

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Jacking Into Linux & Mac

Yeah, yeah I hacked my cyberlegs to run a custom kernel I compile myself. You’ve got to, you know. The Man fills your legs with all sorts of spyware, you know. Yeah, the ‘Aug Incident’ and all that but did you know The Man can read your pedometer count, correct your gait for you, and even jack olfaction sensors to tell when you last changed your socks? No mate, it’s Linux for my legs.

Which is to say that planet-hackers should be pleased that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is on its way to Linux. They might scoff at news it’s coming to Mac too.
