Have you ever wanted to be a hacker? Ever guessed your friend’s Facebook password and thought I could do this. Well Hacknet won’t make you a hacker but it will give you the illusion of being one at least. I will preface this review by saying that I have no idea how to hack a computer system so I have no frame of reference on whether or not Hacknet is realistic at all, but it definitely made me feel like I could break into the Stock Exchange and transfer a bunch of money to my offshore accounts after playing a few hours of it.

So you may be asking yourself what is Hacknet and why did he put all that weird gibberish at the top of the page? Well the answer to the second question is, I wanted to show you a sample of what you will be looking at when you launch Hacknet and begin your career as hacker. You start out with a message from someone named Bit stating that “if you’re reading this, I’m already dead.” After that ominous message your terminal boots up and you start the tutorial. The game does a good job of teaching you the commands that you will need to navigate around this virtual world and work your way up the ranks of various hacker message boards, and if you forget how to do something all you need to do is type in help and a list of the commands you can do will show up.

As you rank up you can take more difficult jobs from the job board which will not only lead to some cool story elements but it will also allow you to pick up various “tools” to help you along the way. A few of the “tools” you will get along the way are programs like SSHCrack.exe, FTPBounce.exe, and WebServerWorm.exe, all of these along with PortHack.exe will assist you in getting past system security in the different computers and servers that you will need to get into in order to complete your missions. Some systems will have higher security than others so you may need to get past proxy servers by overloading them with shell computers or solve a simple puzzle to get past a firewall.

The game gets pretty hard when you start to take on more difficult missions. Such as attempting to break into a chicken restaurants corporate servers in order to steal the secret recipe, or hacking into a fellow hackers computer to find information they shouldn’t have. In these instances you will not only have to crack multiple ports but you have to get past the system’s firewall and proxy, all while on a time limit as the system will automatically attempt to trace your ip. If you can get in and get the information you need before the time runs out you are home free but if you are too slow you will need to defend your own system from being hacked.

Hacknet is a complex game under a rather simple UI, with minimal graphics it is essentially a modern text based adventure game with some very cool gameplay elements and a great soundtrack. Learning how to “hack” makes you feel some what powerful even if it is in a game and it has also peaked my interest in learning how to program in the real world as well. I highly recommend picking this game up if you have any interest in programing or hacking. Also if you enjoy a good text based adventure game then this is the game for you.

Hey guys welcome back to 2 ½ Stars A podcast about movies. I’m Steve, and I’m joined by Erik, Kelly, Jason, Ricky

This week we watched: Wet Hot American Summer

IMDB Synopsis: Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, a group of counselors try to complete their unfinished business before the day ends.

What did you think
Steve
This movie is about a bunch of actors in their 20’s and 30’s pretending to be horny teenage camp counselors. Watching this makes me wonder if in the future Camp Firewood was plagued with killings by a hockey masked machete wielding killer.

Highway Zombies 2
Developer: Auxbrain
Platforms iOS, Android

Reviewed by: Jason Spear

Highway zombies 2 is a driving survival game where you must drive a car through cities, tunnels, swamps and deserts. The game runs very smooth and as you drive through the various terrains you will notice that the graphics are fairly decent as well. Zombies will jump and cling to the sides of your car forcing you to bash into things to knock them off, or you can use a variety of weapons that can be earned by completing objectives, to shoot them off. Failing to remove them in a timely manner will result in your loss, so will crashing head on into obstacles or having the zombies flip your car over .

There are multiple types of zombies in the game all with different attributes. There are skinny ones that are virtually harmless, and red ones that regenerate health. The fat ones can pull your vehicle over more quickly, and the military zombies that are harder to kill. Swamp zombies are super strong, mutated zombies that are very hard to kill, and best of all are the banker zombies, killing them gives you extra cash and rare coins that can be used to purchase weapon upgrades and vehicle upgrades.

Unlike many IOS and Android games Highway Zombies 2 doesn’t bombard you with microtransactions. It is possible to spend money to get through the game faster, but you can earn everything in the game just by playing.

Highway zombies 2 is a simple to play but difficult to master game. As much as I have enjoyed playing Highway Zombies 2 there are parts of the game that feel monotonous, such as having to kill 5000 of a particular type of zombie to complete an objective. I recommend this game for the casual or advanced gamers. The advanced gamer could power through in about 6 hours. Even though I have beaten this game I still continue playing it weeks later for 10 or 15 minutes at a time, but for a casual gamer playing 10 or so minutes at a time you will get there eventually.

You can find this game free in the App Store on both iOS and Android, along with Highway Zombies, and Highway Zombies drivers ed.
