CNET UK podcast 540: Ready Player One writer talks rebooting The Matrix - CNET

cNET.com - News - July 14, 2018 - 6:00am
On the UK's best tech podcast this week, we chat with Ready Player One writer Zak Penn about superhero fatigue, toxic fandom and rebooting The Matrix.

A years-old, one-letter typo led to Aliens: Colonial Marines‘ weird AI

History may never be kind to Aliens: Colonial Marines, but the present tense isn't looking so good for the lawsuit- and complaint-ridden Gearbox game, either. This week brought to our attention one of the weirdest coding typos we've ever seen in a game—which has apparently been hidden inside of A:CM's PC version since its 2013 launch.

The first-person shooter returned to gaming's zeitgeist this week thanks to a 90-percent discount at gaming site Fanatical, which brings its asking price down to $3. (Buying the PC version outright from Steam currently costs the full $30 price.) This sale led one fan to plead with members of the popular gaming forum ResetERA to consider the game as a decent cheap-fun option, especially due to a 712MB fan-made patch at moddb.com that addresses many of the game's graphical and gameplay glitches.

Tether vs. teather

Upon researching this patch, ResetERA readers noticed something in the moddb.com notes that somehow escaped the gaming community at large in October 2017: the discovery of a one-letter typo in A:CM's INI files. As moddb.com user jamesdickinson963 pointed out last year, the game's "PecanEngine.ini" file references a "tether" system in assigning AI commands to the series' infamous monsters (which I'll call "xenomorphs" for brevity's sake, even though that term isn't necessarily the right one). However, one of its two mentions of the term "tether" is misspelled as "teather."

Joss Whedon will return to sci-fi TV with HBO’s The Nevers

Joss Whedon, the creator of acclaimed TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, has been announced as showrunner for a new HBO series titled The Nevers.

The Friday announcement confirms Whedon as "executive producer, showrunner, writer, and director" for his first-ever non-network TV series, following his RECENT executive producer and co-creator duties on the ongoing series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. HBO describes the show as "an epic science-fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities," and its statement makes no bones about Whedon's legacy by claiming it "follows in the footsteps of Buffy."

HBO did not announce a release window, actors, or other principal members of the cast and crew.
