The President is Missing… a few finer points on how the cyber works in this novel

Ars Technica - 7 hours 51 min ago

If you hadn't heard, former President William Jefferson Clinton and well-established mass-production author James Patterson have collaborated on a novel titled The President is Missing. The book is a political cyber-thriller of sorts, the second such book from a member of the Clinton family—that is, if you count Hillary Clinton's What Happened as one. And just as with with Ms. Clinton's book, The President is Missing gives shout outs to Russian hacking groups, mentioning Fancy Bear by name.

The President is Missing is, however, a work of fiction. At 513 pages in hardcover, it's slightly slimmer than the recently-released Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General report on the FBI's conduct during the Clinton email investigation, and certainly better paced—with Patterson's trademarked five-to-10 page chapters cutting it up for easy digestion. The prose is largely marked by Patterson's hand as well, but there are places where Clinton's voice pushes through (and not always for the better)—particularly in the passages of first-person narration from the protagonist, President Jon Duncan, which are laden with Democratic talking points and the moral weight of every presidential decision.

The plot, in brief, is this: a Democratic president from a southern state is on the verge of facing an impeachment (sound familiar?) in the midst of a national security crisis. A terrorist mastermind has managed to plant "wiper" malware in every computer in the United States. Racing against time, the president disguises himself, exits the White House through a secret tunnel, and meets in person with the hacker who helped distribute the malware while a crack mercenary hit squad led by a pregnant Bosnian sniper attempts to take the hacker and President Duncan out.

Rage 2 at E3: Doom’s punk rock sibling feels great to play

Ars Technica - 8 hours 51 min ago

LOS ANGELES—The first Rage didn't generate much buzz amongst fans of first-person shooters when it shipped in 2010, but one of id Software's later titles (the 2016 Doom reboot) made a big splash. With Rage 2, publisher Bethesda is hoping that some of the post-Doom goodwill can elevate this low-profile franchise to popularity.

The publisher partnered id's FPS veterans with Avalanche Studios (Just CauseMad Max) to make this sequel open world. The first game had a veneer that made it look open-world, even though it was just as enclosed as Doom.

I played Rage 2 at Bethesda's E3 booth this week, and unfortunately I can only judge the id Software side of that partnership. The demo I played was a linear, corridor-crawling action shooter experience with no open-world aspects. When I asked a Bethesda rep why that was, he told me that the company wanted Rage fans to be sure that the gunplay is still just as good even though the game is going open world. I think it's more likely that the open-world part of the full game (which is slated to launch in spring 2019) just isn't ready to be played yet.

Tammy Perez / ATX TV Festival

AUSTIN, Texas—If you ask Graham Yost—prolific TV producer with a resume including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, and Justified—accuracy in on-screen military portrayals is a relatively new phenomenon, similar to how tech ranging from the latest hacker tools to futuristic autonomous bots have recently become increasingly grounded in reality. Ground zero for this idea won't surprise any fans of this particular entertainment genre.

"In some historical military films, there have been some training of actors, but I think a lot of this really starts with Dale Dye and [Saving] Private Ryan [1998]," Yost says during ATX TV Festival's panel on modern military television. "That set a template for people, and we wouldn't have done Band without it. In fact, when the cast of Band gets together every year, the day they pick for their reunion is the first day of bootcamp. That's when they felt they came together as a unit."
