‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ Linux Review

Filed under
Gaming

From Frictional Games (Amnesia: The Dark Descent) and The Chinese Room (Dear Esther), Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs continues the survival horror Amnesia series with a new story set in 1899.

You play as Oswald Mandus, an industrialist who awakens to an empty house and a rumbling machine that takes the familiar Victorian surroundings to the surreal. Your task? Find out what’s going on.

Gameplay

For players of the previous title, you won’t be going in feeling any comfort from your previous experiences with Amnesia. The exploration of an unnerving landscape will feel familiar, but with a few key elements missing from this iteration, you’ll feel just as helpless as new players.

The biggest change is the lack of an inventory.

    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
