When “easy mode” isn’t enough: An analysis of unclear lessons in video games

ArsTechnica - Fri, 10/04/2019 - 3:00am

For years, we at Ars Technica have discussed how the video game industry might benefit from tearing down its oldest traditions. This November's Death Stranding will ship with a "very easy" mode, and that inspired us to wonder whether other video games should do the same thing. And we loved how the Halo: Master Chief Collection launched in 2014 with an option to hop to any moment within its multi-game library. That prompted us to suggest that more games should let their owners flip to any "page" in a game as they please instead of forcing players to earn their way via challenge.

This week, a gaming and pop-culture critique channel on YouTube looked at the existential question of "video game access" from a wholly different perspective: a year-long analysis of an adult trying video games for the first time in her life. The results, as posted by the channel Razbuten, have been embedded below, and the 20-minute analysis is fascinating on both a macro and micro level.

Even Mario could learn a thing or two

"What Games Are Like For Someone Who Doesn't Play Games," posted by YouTube channel Razbuten.

Instead of calling the video "I made my wife suffer through video games for her first time ever," Razbuten opted for a title that speaks to the inherent learning curve for anyone new to the hobby. "What Games Are Like For Someone Who Doesn't Play Games" came as a result of a full year of the host's wife testing nine video games she'd never played before: Super Mario Bros., Celeste, Shovel Knight, Portal, Doom (2016), The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Last of Us, Uncharted 2, and Dark Souls.

Attackers exploit 0-day vulnerability that gives full control of Android phones

Attackers exploit 0-day vulnerability that gives full control of Android phones

Enlarge (credit: Maurizio Pesce)

Attackers are exploiting a zero-day vulnerability in Google’s Android mobile operating system that can give them full control of at least 18 different phone models, including four different Pixel models, a member of Google’s Project Zero research group said on Thursday night.

There’s evidence the vulnerability is being actively exploited, either by exploit developer NSO Group or one of its customers, Project Zero member Maddie Stone said in a post. NSO representatives, meanwhile, said the "exploit has nothing to do with NSO." Exploits require little or no customization to fully root vulnerable phones. The vulnerability can be exploited two ways: (1) when a target installs an untrusted app or (2) for online attacks, by combining the exploit with a second exploit targeting a vulnerability in code the Chrome browser uses to render content.

“The bug is a local privilege escalation vulnerability that allows for a full compromise of a vulnerable device,” Stone wrote. “If the exploit is delivered via the Web, it only needs to be paired with a renderer exploit, as this vulnerability is accessible through the sandbox.”

US wants Facebook to backdoor WhatsApp and halt encryption plans

Attorney General William Barr plans to once again make his case against end-to-end encryption for the masses, this time in a public call for Facebook to ensure that law enforcement can decrypt messages when investigating terrorists, child abusers, and other criminals.

Barr, along with counterparts from the UK and Australia, plan to publish an open letter on Friday that makes the case, BuzzFeed and later The New York Times reported on Thursday. The reports come six weeks after Barr said tech firms "can and must" backdoor encryption to keep it from degrading criminal investigations.

For more than a decade, the US Justice Department has warned encryption could hamstring its ability to fight enemies and conduct criminal investigations, a plight it describes as "going dark." In 2016, the department renewed its push when it obtained a court order requiring Apple to help the FBI unlock the iPhone of one of the shooters in the San Bernardino, California, mass killings. Apple fought the order—arguing the code required could be misused—and the FBI eventually found another way to access the encrypted data.
