The Clockwork DevTerm Has Cyberpunk Vibes

Illustration for article titled This Super-Compact Computer Will Let Me Live at Least One Neuromancer Fantasy


Clockwork, makers of the Gameboy-esque GameShell, are back with a new mobile product aimed even more squarely at lovers of retro tech. Their DevTerm is a self-contained computer powered by a low-energy CPU or Raspberry Pi aimed directly at folks who are looking for a low-profile, extremely portable computer for coding, sysadmin work, or writing.

The whole thing looks like an unholy union between a cyberpunk luggable and an electric typewriter, especially considering the two knobs on the sides. You have a choice of a ClockworkPi mainboard running an ARM64-bit Quad-core chip or a Raspberry Pi CM3+ Lite. You can also add up to 4 GB of memory. The computer runs Linux and includes a number of ports, including two USB-A ports and a UART port for expanding the device’s input and output. You also get a 6.8-inch screen and a mechanical keyboard with arrow keys

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Spoilers Are Starting To Hit The Internet

Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t coming out for a little while now, but things have a way of leaking out. Physical copies have apparently started popping up in the wild, and that means that gameplay has started to leak out on the internet as well: it seems like CD Projekt Red and Warner Brothers are taking various mirrors down as fast as they can spot them, but it’s only a matter of time before major spoilers start to circulate.

So, consider this a warning. If you’re the super-sensitive type, maybe time to start muting words and avoiding the sort of forums that tend to post that sort of thing. We all remember when basically the entirety of The Last of Us Part 2 spilled out over the internet, and it was a bummer for both the developers and fans that didn’t want the story spoiled before

Cyberpunk Action Game Ghostrunner Launches On Switch This Month

If you’ve wanted to dive into the cyberpunk-fueled action of Ghostrunner but prefer to have a version for on-the-go gaming, then you’ll be happy to know that the Nintendo Switch version of the game is set to launch on November 10.

Co-publishers All in Games and 505 Games have confirmed the release date after a previous delay of the port, with Ghostrunner having launched already on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The press release states that the visually demanding title has been tuned accordingly for the Nintendo Switch and its hardware, which should produce a “smooth experience”. The PS4 version of the game was rough at launch, but has since been patched to fix many of its technical issues.

Ghostrunner is a first-person action game with melee-focused combat and a heavy reliance on quick, acrobatic parkour. Each enemy can be taken down with a single hit, but you can fall

CD Projekt Red Developers Are Getting Death Threats After ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Delay

Yesterday, developer CD Projekt Red once again delayed the hotly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from its original November release date to December 10, 2020. It was the smallest of the multiple delays the game has seen so far, it’s caused an inflamed response from the internet nonetheless. According to Senior Game Designer Andrzej Zawadzki, already-overworked members of the team have begun receiving death threats.

Death threats and harassment of all stripes have been an endemic problem in the industry for years, triggered by all sorts of different parts of the development process. Zawadzki goes on to show some example of what he says are the milder messages developers have received. Having seen some of the more extreme examples of this sort of behavior elsewhere on the Internet, I can only guess at what some of the less mild examples look like.

It goes without saying that

Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Again, New December 10 Release Date Confirmed

Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed by another three weeks. Its new release date is set for December 10. Following numerous previous delays, it had been set for launch on November 19, but according to a statement from studio execs Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski, shipping the game on PS4/Pro, Xbox One/X, and PC, alongside next-gen versions for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and Stadia, has been a challenge, especially under work from home conditions.

“Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly,” the statement continues. “We’re aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed again to December 10th

Cyberpunk 2077 is being delayed yet again, this time until December 10th. Developer CD Projekt Red says it’s still working on a launch day patch for the game, which was previously slated for November 19th. It attributes the delay partly to its multiplatform release — which will see the game launch across two generations of console hardware, PC, and Google Stadia.

“The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test nine versions of it,” the company said in a tweet. “We need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We’re aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do.”

Cyberpunk 2077 officially went gold (i.e. locked a release version of the
